SEV Biblia, Chapter 9:1 Â¶ Y clamó en mis oídos con gran voz, diciendo: Los visitadores de la ciudad han llegado, y cada uno trae en su mano su instrumento para destruir.
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Ezekiel 9:1 Verse 1. Cause them that have charge over the city] By those six men with destroying weapons the Chaldeans are represented, who had received commission to destroy the city; and when the north is mentioned in such cases, Chaldea and the Chaldean armies are generally intended. There appears to have been six men with a sort of slaughter-bills, and one man with an inkhorn. These may represent the seven counsellors of the eastern monarchs, who always saw the king's face, and knew all the secrets of the government. One of them was that minister who had the office of reporting concerning criminals, who carried the book of death and the book of life into the presence of the king, where the names were entered of criminals who were destined to suffer, and of those who were either considered as innocent or recommended to mercy; those of the former in the book of death, those of the latter in the book of life. This person with the inkhorn might be termed, in our phrase, the recorder.
Matthew Henry Commentary
A vision denoting the destruction of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, an the departure of the symbol of the Divine presence.
Ezek. 9:1-4 It is a great comfort to believers, that in the midst of destroyers and destructions, there is a Mediator, a great High Priest who has an interest in heaven, and in whom saints on earth have a interest. The representation of the Divine glory from above the ark removed to the threshold, denoted that the Lord was about to leave his mercy-seat, and to pronounce judgment on the people. The distinguishin character of this remnant that is to be saved, is such as sigh and cr to God in prayer, because of the abominations in Jerusalem. Those wh keep pure in times of general wickedness, God will keep safe in time of general trouble and distress.
Ezek. 9:5-11 The slaughter must begin at the sanctuary, that all ma see and know that the Lord hates sin most in those nearest to him. He who was appointed to protect, reported the matter. Christ is faithfu to the trust reposed in him. Is he commanded by his Father to secur eternal life to the chosen remnant? He says, Of all that thou has given me, I have lost none. If others perish, and we are saved, we mus ascribe the difference wholly to the mercy of our God, for we too have deserved wrath. Let us still continue to plead in behalf of others. But where the Lord shows no mercy he does no injustice; he only recompense men's ways __________________________________________________________________
