    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 12:12

    12:12 The prince - Zedekiah. Shall bear - Disguised, as a servant, in hope to conceal himself, chuses the twilight as the time that would best favour his design. They shall dig - This was fulfilled when they broke down the wall to fly, Jer 39:4. Cover his face - Zedekiah did by this aim at concealing himself.
