    Definitions for Ezekiel 2:5

    Forbear - To cease; to let alone; to be silent.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 2:5

    Yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them - By this they shall be assured of two things:

    1. That God in his mercy had given them due warning.

    2. That themselves were inexcusable, for not taking it.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 2:5

    A rebellious house - A phrase employed continually by Ezekiel in bitter irony, in the place of house of Israel, as much as to say, "House no longer of Israel, but of rebellion." Compare Isaiah 30:9.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 2:5

    2:5 Shall know - They that obey shall know by the good I will do them, those that will not, by the evil which I will bring upon them.
