    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 12:19

    The people of the land - Chaldaea.

    Of the inhabitants - In respect to "the inhabitants."

    Desolate from, all that is therein - i. e., stripped of all its inhabitants and of all its wealth.

    At one and the same time, Jeremiah was prophesying in Jerusalem, and Ezekiel in Chaldaea; the prophecies of the former were sent to the exiles, and those of Ezekiel to the dwellers at Jerusalem, that the guiding hand of One God in different places might be made clear (Jerome).
