John Gill's Bible Commentary Ver. 3. Now therefore let us make a covenant with our God , etc.] Renew our covenant with him, and lay ourselves under fresh obligation by promise and oath, and unanimously agree to put away all the wives, and such as are born of them ; he means all the strange wives, such marriages being unlawful; and such wives might the more easily be put away, since bills of divorce were in frequent use with the Jews, and the children of such also being illegitimate; and the rather they were to be put away, lest they should corrupt other children, or get into the affections of their fathers, which might lead on to receive their mothers again, and especially this was to be done as a punishment of their sin: though no doubt but a provision was to be made, and was made, for the maintenance both of wives and children: according to the counsel of my Lord ; either of Ezra, whom he honours with this title, being a ruler under the king of Persia; or of the Lord God, according to his will declared in his words, which is his counsel: and of those that tremble at the commandment of our God ; feared to break it, and dreaded the effect of such a breach; and who no doubt would follow the counsel of the Lord, and join in their advice to act according to the proposal made: and let it be done according to the law ; as that directs in such cases.
Matthew Henry Commentary Verses 1-5 - Shechaniah owned the national guilt. The case is sad, but it is no desperate; the disease threatening, but not incurable. Now that the people begin to lament, a spirit of repentance seems to be poured out now there is hope that God will forgive, and have mercy. The sin tha rightly troubles us, shall not ruin us. In melancholy times we mus observe what makes for us, as well as against us. And there may be goo hopes through grace, even where there is the sense of great guil before God. The case is plain; what has been done amiss, must be undon again as far as possible; nothing less than this is true repentance Sin must be put away, with a resolution never to have any thing more to do with it. What has been unjustly got, must be restored. Arise, be of good courage. Weeping, in this case, is good, but reforming is better As to being unequally yoked with unbelievers, such marriages, it is certain, are sinful, and ought not to be made; but now they are no null, as they were before the gospel did away the separation betwee Jews and Gentiles.
