    Definitions for Ezekiel 18:32

    Wherefore - Why?; for what reason?; for what cause?

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 18:32

    For I have no pleasure - God repeats what he had so solemnly declared before. Can ye doubt his sincerity? his ability? his willingness? the efficacy of the blood of his covenant?

    Wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye - Reader, now give God thy heart.

    Though every man comes into the world with a fallen nature - a soul infected with sin, yet no man is damned on that account. He who refuses that grace which pardons sin and heals infected nature, who permits the evil principle to break out into transgression, and continues and dies in his iniquity and sin, and will not come unto Christ that he may have life; he, and he only, goes to perdition. Nor will the righteousness of a parent or relation help his sinful soul: no man can have more grace than is necessary to save himself; and none can have that, who does not receive it through Christ Jesus. It is the mercy of God in Christ which renders the salvation of a sinner possible; and it is that mercy alone which can heal the backslider. The atoning blood blots out all that is past; the same blood cleanses from all unrighteousness. Who believes so as to apply for this redemption? Who properly thanks God for having provided such a Savior?

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 18:32

    18:32 I have no pleasure - Sinners displease God when they undo themselves; they please him when they return.
