    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 12:2

    Which have eyes to see, and see not - It is not want of grace that brings them to destruction. They have eyes to see, but they will not use them. No man is lost because he had not sufficient grace to save him, but because he abused that grace.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 12:2

    Compare Deuteronomy 1:26; margin reference; Romans 10:21. The repetition of such words from age to age, shows that the prophet's words are intended to reach beyond the generation in which he lived.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 12:2

    12:2 Eyes to see - They have capacity, if they would, to understand, but they will not understand, what thou speakest.
