Ezekiel 5:3 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
5:3 Take - Of the last third. Bind - As men tied up in the skirt of their garment what they would not lose: to signify the small remnant.
Place a third of it at the center of your map of Jerusalem. After acting out the siege, burn it there. Scatter another third across your map and chop it with a sword. Scatter the last third to the wind, for I will scatter my people with the sword.
Then take some of these hairs out and throw them into the fire, burning them up. A fire will then spread from this remnant and destroy all of Israel.
