ezekiel 9:9 Then He said to me, "The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah is very, very great, and the land is filled with blood, and the city is full of perversion; for they say, 'The LORD has forsaken the land, and the LORD does not see!'

< Ezekiel 9:8
Ezekiel 9:10 >

      9. exceeding--literally, "very, very"; doubled.
      perverseness--"apostasy" [GROTIUS]; or, "wresting aside of justice."
      Lord . . . forsaken . . . earth . . . seeth not--The order is reversed from Eze 8:12. There they speak of His neglect of His people in their misery; here they go farther and deny His providence (Ps 10:11), so that they may sin fearlessly. God, in answer to Ezekiel's question (Eze 9:8), leaves the difficulty unsolved; He merely vindicates His justice by showing it did not exceed their sin: He would have us humbly acquiesce in His judgments, and wait and trust.
