    Definitions for Ezekiel 36:11

    Settle - Ledge; pedestal block.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 36:11

    I will multiply upon you man and beast - The agriculturalist and the beast of burden.

    And will do better unto you than at your beginnings - I agree with Calmet, that it would be difficult to show the literal fulfillment of this prophecy from the days of Zerubbabel to the birth of Christ. The colouring is too high for that period; and the whole falls in better with Gospel than with Jewish times.
