SEV Biblia, Chapter 24:16 Hijo de hombre, he aquí que yo te quito por muerte el deseo de tus ojos; no endeches, ni llores, ni corran tus lágrimas.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 24:16 Verse 16. Behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes] Here is an intimation that the stroke he was to suffer was to be above all grief; that it would be so great as to prevent the relief of tears.
Curae leves loquuntur, graviores silent, is a well-accredited maxim in such cases. Superficial griefs affect the more easily moved passions; great ones affect the soul itself, in its powers of reasoning, reflecting, comparing, recollecting, &c., when the sufferer feels all the weight of wo.
Neither shall thy tears run down.] touto gar idion twn ofqalmwn en toiv megaloiv kakoiv en men gar taiv metriaiv sumforaiv afqonwv ta dakrua katarrei, Ñ en de toiv uperballousi deinoiv feugei kai ta dakrua kai prodidwsi kai touv afqalmouv Achill. Tat. lib. 3. c. 11. For this is the case with the eyes in great calamities: in light misfortunes tears flow freely, but in heavy afflictions tears fly away, and betray the eyes.
Matthew Henry Commentary
The fate of Jerusalem. (Ezek. 24:1-14) The extent of the sufferings of the Jews. (Ezek. 24:15-27)
Ezek. 24:1-14 The pot on the fire represented Jerusalem besieged by the Chaldeans: all orders and ranks were within the walls, prepared as prey for the enemy. They ought to have put away their transgressions as the scum, which rises by the heat of the fire, is taken from the to of the pot. But they grew worse, and their miseries increased Jerusalem was to be levelled with the ground. The time appointed for the punishment of wicked men may seem to come slowly, but it will com surely. It is sad to think how many there are, on whom ordinances an providences are all lost.
Ezek. 24:15-27 Though mourning for the dead is a duty, yet it must be kept under by religion and right reason: we must not sorrow as men tha have no hope. Believers must not copy the language and expressions of those who know not God. The people asked the meaning of the sign. God takes from them all that was dearest to them. And as Ezekiel wept no for his affliction, so neither should they weep for theirs. Blessed be God, we need not pine away under our afflictions; for should all comforts fail, and all sorrows be united, yet the broken heart and the mourner's prayer are always acceptable before God __________________________________________________________________
