25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
25 " 'You profane and wicked prince of Israel, whose day has come, whose time of punishment has reached its climax,
25 And you, O profane
25 "'O Zedekiah, blasphemous and evil prince of Israel: Time's up. It's "punishment payday."
25 Now to you, O profane, wicked prince of Israel, whose day has come, whose iniquity shall end,
25 "OÂ you corrupt and wicked prince of Israel, your final day of reckoning is here!
Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 21:25
Commentary on Ezekiel 21:18-27
(Read Ezekiel 21:18-27)
By the Spirit of prophecy Ezekiel foresaw Nebuchadnezzar's march from Babylon, which he would determine by divination. The Lord would overturn the government of Judah, till the coming of Him whose right it is. This seems to foretell the overturnings of the Jewish nation to the present day, and the troubles of states and kingdoms, which shall make way for establishing the Messiah's kingdom throughout the earth. The Lord secretly leads all to adopt his wise designs. And in the midst of the most tremendous warnings of wrath, we still hear of mercy, and some mention of Him through whom mercy is shown to sinful men.
