    Definitions for Ezekiel 7:12

    Let - To hinder or obstruct.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezekiel 7:12

    Let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn - Such is now the state of public affairs, that he who through want has been obliged to sell his inheritance, need not mourn on the account; as of this the enemy would soon have deprived him. And he who has bought it need not rejoice in his bargain, as he shall soon be stripped of his purchase, and either fall by the sword, or be glad to flee for his life.

    Barnes' Notes on Ezekiel 7:12

    The day - Either of temporal or final judgment.

    It was grievous for an Israelite to part with his land. But now the seller need not mourn his loss, nor the buyer exult in him gain. All should live the pitiful lives of strangers in another country.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezekiel 7:12

    7:12 Mourn - Men usually part with their estates grieving that they must transmit their right to others; but let them now think how little a while they could have kept them, and how little time they shall keep them who have bought them.
