    Definitions for Ezekiel 6:11

    Smite - To strike; beat.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 6:11

    Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot - Show the utmost marks of thy astonishment and indignation, and dread of the evils that are coming upon them. Some have contended for the propriety of clapping and stamping in public worship from these words! It is scarcely a breach of charity to think that such persons are themselves incapable either of attending on or conducting the worship of God. To be consistent, they should copy the prophet in his other typical actions as well as these; and then we shall hear of their lying on their left side for three hundred and ninety days, and on their right side for forty days; shaving their heads, burning their hair, baking their bread with dung, etc. Now all these things, because they were typical and commanded, were proper in the prophet: in such persons as the above they would be evidences of insanity. Such extravagant acts are no part of God's worship.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 6:11

    The gleam of hope is but transitory. Darkness again gathers round, for as yet the prophet is predicting judgment.
