21 I had concern for my holy name, which the people of Israel profaned among the nations where they had gone.

Matthew Henry's Commentary on Ezekiel 36:21

Commentary on Ezekiel 36:16-24

(Read Ezekiel 36:16-24)

The restoration of that people, being typical of our redemption by Christ, shows that the end aimed at in our salvation is the glory of God. The sin of a people defiles their land; renders it abominable to God, and uncomfortable to themselves. God's holy name is his great name; his holiness is his greatness, nor does any thing else make a man truly great.
