Ezekiel 5* A type of hair, showing the judgments about to come upon theJews. (1-4) These awful judgments are declared. (5-17)1-4 The prophet must shave off the hair of his head and beard,which signifies God's utter rejecting and abandoning thatpeople. One part must be burned in the midst of the city,denoting the multitudes that should perish by famine andpestilence. Another part was to be cut in pieces, representingthe many who were slain by the sword. Another part was to bescattered in the wind, denoting the carrying away of some intothe land of the conqueror, and the flight of others into theneighbouring countries for shelter. A small quantity of thethird portion was to be bound in his shirts, as that of which heis very careful. But few were reserved. To whatever refugesinners flee, the fire and sword of God's wrath will consumethem. 5-17 The sentence passed upon Jerusalem is very dreadful, themanner of expression makes it still more so. Who is able tostand in God's sight when he is angry? Those who live and dieimpenitent, will perish for ever unpitied; there is a day comingwhen the Lord will not spare. Let not persons or churches, whochange the Lord's statutes, expect to escape the doom ofJerusalem. Let us endeavour to adorn the doctrine of God ourSaviour in all things. Sooner or later God's word will proveitself true.
