    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 18:7

    5

    Hath not oppressed any - Has not used his power or influence to oppress, pain, or injure another.

    6

    Hath restored to the debtor his pledge - Has carefully surrendered the pawn or pledge when its owner came to redeem it. As the pledge is generally of more worth than that for which it is pledged, an unprincipled man will make some pretense to keep it; which is highly abominable in the sight of God.

    7

    Hath spoiled none by violence - Either by robbery or personal insult. For a man may be spoiled both ways.

    8

    Hath given his bread to the hungry - Has been kind-hearted and charitable; especially to them that are in the deepest want.

    9

    Hath covered the naked with a garment - Has divided both his bread and his clothing with the necessitous. These are two branches of the same root.
