Ezekiel 24:27 Parallel
CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible

The word of the LORD came to me:
"On that day I will make a horn grow for the Israelites, and I will open your mouth among them. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
Now the evening before the man arrived, the hand of the LORD was on me, and he opened my mouth before the man came to me in the morning. So my mouth was opened and I was no longer silent.
While he was saying this to me, I bowed with my face toward the ground and was speechless.
