    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 11:19

    And I will give them one heart - A whole system of renewed affections.

    And I will put a new spirit within you - To direct and influence these new affections.

    And I will take the stony heart out of their flesh - That which would not receive the impressions of my Spirit.

    And will give them a heart of flesh - One that is capable of receiving and retaining these impressions.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 11:19

    Compare Revelation 21. The identity of thought and language in Ezekiel, predicting the new kingdom of Israel, and in John, foretelling the kingdom of heaven, forces upon us the conclusion that the prophecy of Ezekiel has an ultimate reference to that climax which John plainly indicates.

    Ezekiel 11:19

    One heart - So long as the Israelites were distracted by the service of many gods, such unity was impossible; but now, when they shall have taken away the "abominations" from the land, they shall be united in heart to serve the true God.

    Stony heart ... heart of flesh - The heart unnaturally hardened, and the heart reawakened to feelings proper to man.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 11:19

    11:19 One heart - Cyrus shall give them leave, and I will give them a heart to return; and on their way shall there be great utility; and, when come to Jerusalem, they shall own me, and my laws, and with one consent, build Jerusalem and the temple, and restore true religion. The stony - That hard, inflexible, undutiful, incorrigible disposition.
