    Definitions for Ezekiel 21:4

    Sheath - A case or covering for a sword.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 21:4

    From the south to the north - The whole land shall be ravaged from one end to the other.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 21:4

    The righteous and the wicked - take the place of "every green tree and every dry tree" Ezekiel 20:47; "all faces" that of "all flesh:" to show the universality of the destructions. National judgment involves the innocent in the temporal ruin of the guilty. The equity of God is vindicated by the ruin being only temporal.

    From the south to the north - From one end of the holy land to the other; the seer is in the north, and looks at once on the whole extent of the ruin.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 21:4

    21:4 All flesh - All the Jews that dwell in the land.
