    Definitions for Ezekiel 36:15

    Heathen - People; nations; non-Jews.
    Reproach - Disgrace; shame.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 36:15

    Hear in thee the shame of the pagan - Hear the pagan putting thee to shame by their contemptuous words.

    The reproach of the people - "Thy people" (thy rightful possessors) shall have no cause to reproach thee for want of fertility. Were the blessings promised here merely temporal they could not be said to be fulfilled. The land is still subject to pagan masters. The words must point to blessings yet future, spiritual blessings.

    In the following chapters to the end of Ezekiel 39 the conflict between the world mid God is described in its most general form, and the absolute triumph of the kingdom of God fully depicted. The honor of God is asserted in the gathering together, and the purification of, His people. As the dispersion of the children of Israel was far wider and more lasting than the sojourn in Chaldaea, so the reunion here predicted is far more extensive and complete. The dispersion yet continues, the reunion will be in those days when Israel shall be gathered into the Church of God.
