Ezekiel 21:28 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
21:28 Their reproach - Wherewith they reproached Israel in the day of Israel's afflictions.
To a modern taste, Ezekiel does not appeal anything like so powerfully as Isaiah or Jeremiah. He has neither the majesty of the one nor the tenderness and passion of the other.

I will not let you hear those other nations insult you, and you will no longer be mocked by them. You will not be a land that causes its nation to fall, says the Sovereign LORD."
