    Definitions for Ezra 9:6

    Trespass - Wrong-doing; sin.

    Clarke's Commentary on Ezra 9:6

    I am ashamed and blush - God had been so often provoked, and had so often pardoned them, and they had continued to transgress, that he was ashamed to go back again to the throne of grace to ask for mercy in their behalf. This is the genuine feeling of every reawakened backslider.

    Wesley's Notes on Ezra 9:6

    9:6 Our - He includes himself in the number of the transgressors, because he himself was guilty of many sins; and because the princes and priests, and so many of the people having done this, the guilt was now become national.
