(13) Pelatiah . . . died.--This Pelatiah was one of the "princes of the people" mentioned in Ezekiel 11:1-2 as "those that devise mischief and give wicked counsel." The prophet's mind is greatly affected by his sudden death, and he earnestly intercedes that in the judgments God will not "make a full end of the remnant."

Verse 13. - Pelatiah the son of Benaiah. We must remember that this a as part of the vision, but it may be assumed, in the nature of the case, that it represented what then or afterwards was a fact in history. Had Pelatiah died suddenly during a council meeting? Compare the death of Hananiah in Jeremiah 28:17. As it was, even in the vision, the death so startled and horrified the prophet, that he burst out again into a prayer like that of ch. 9:8. Was the "residue," the "remnant" of Israel, represented by one of the chief counsellors of the city, to be thus cut off?
