11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.
11 Say to them, 'I am a sign to you.' "As I have done, so it will be done to them. They will go into exile as captives.
11 Say, 'I am a sign for you: as I have done, so shall it be done to them. They shall go into exile, into captivity.'
11 "Also tell them, 'I am drawing a picture for you. As I am now doing, it will be done to all the people of Israel. They will go into exile as captives.'
11 Say, 'I am a sign to you. As I have done, so shall it be done to them; they shall be carried away into captivity.'
11 Explain that your actions are a sign to show what will soon happen to them, for they will be driven into exile as captives.
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 12:11
Commentary on Ezekiel 12:1-16
(Read Ezekiel 12:1-16)
By the preparation for removal, and his breaking through the wall of his house at evening, as one desirous to escape from the enemy, the prophet signified the conduct and fate of Zedekiah. When God has delivered us, we must glorify him and edify others, by acknowledging our sins. Those who by afflictions are brought to this, are made to know that God is the Lord, and may help to bring others to know him.
