    Definitions for Ezekiel 16:6

    Yea - Yes; certainly.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 16:6

    I said - Live - I received the exposed child from the death that awaited it, while in such a state as rendered it at once an object of horror, and also of compassion.

    - Modo primos Edere vagitus,

    et adhuc a matre rubentem.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 16:6

    Or, Then I passed by thee ... and Isaid.

    Polluted - wallowing, "treading upon oneself."

    In thy blood - may be connected either with "I said" or with "Live." In the latter case, the state of blood and defilement is made the very cause of life, because it called forth the pity of Him who gave life. Since in the Mosaic Law "blood" was especially defiling, so was it also the special instrument of purification.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 16:6

    16:6 When I passed by - God here speaks after the manner of men. Live - This is such a command as sends forth a power to effect what is commanded; he gave that life: he spake, and it was done.
