Ezekiel 5:3 Parallel
CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Of the third part a few are yet to be taken and kept in the fold of the garment (representing those still to remain in their native land), and yet even of those few some are to be cast into the fire. Such was the fate of those left behind after the destruction of Jerusalem Jeremiah 40; 41. The whole prophecy is one of denunciation.
"One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the days of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around the city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will unsheathe a sword behind them.
"Take again some of them and throw them into the fire and burn them in the fire; from it a fire will spread to all the house of Israel.
