    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 33:21

    In the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month - Instead of the twelfth year, the eleventh is the reading of seven of Kennicott's MSS., one of De Rossi's, and the Syriac. My own, mentioned in the preceding chapter, reads with the present text. This was on Wednesday, Jan. 25, A.M. 3416 or 3417.

    One that had escaped out of Jerusalem - After it had been taken by the Chaldeans.

    Came unto me, saying, The City Is Smitten - This very message God had promised to the prophet, Ezekiel 24:26.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 33:21

    The date shows an interval of 112 years from the taking of Jerusalem Jeremiah 52:12. The general news that the city was taken must have reached them, but it was only when the messenger arrived that the prophet's mouth was opened. It is not improbable that a body of men after the destruction of the city joined their brethren in Chaldaea; if so this would account for the lapse of time, and supply a reason why Ezekiel on their arrival should commence a new series of prophecies.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 33:21
