    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 5:3

    Of the third part a few are yet to be taken and kept in the fold of the garment (representing those still to remain in their native land), and yet even of those few some are to be cast into the fire. Such was the fate of those left behind after the destruction of Jerusalem Jeremiah 40; 41. The whole prophecy is one of denunciation.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 5:3

    5:3 Take - Of the last third. Bind - As men tied up in the skirt of their garment what they would not lose: to signify the small remnant.
