Ezekiel 9:9 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

For they say, The Lords hath forsaken the earth - את הארץ eth haarets, "this land." He has no more place in Israel; he has quite abandoned it; he neither sees nor cares, and he can be no longer the object of worship to any man in Israel. This seems to be the meaning; and God highly resents it, because it was bringing him on a level with idols and provincial deities, who had, according to supposition, regency only in some one place.

I have heard of a naturalist, who thought himself exceedingly wise with regard to the
