    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 12:3

    Prepare thee stuff for removing - Get carriages to transport thy goods to another place; signifying by this the captivity that was at hand.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 12:3

    Stuff - Raiment, vessels, and the like. The "removing" was to be of the kind that accompanied exile. The whole account of this transaction marks it as a real act. The prophet was to be "a sign" to his countrymen, and the "exiles" as well as those that remained in Judaea had need to be taught this lesson, for though themselves far away, they looked to Jerusalem as their home, and were scarcely less eager for its safety than the inhabitants themselves.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 12:3

    12:3 Stuff - Vessels or instruments, wherein thou mayest put what is portable.
