Eze 39:17

“Speak to the birds.” This is an example of God telling His prophets to speak, that is, to prophesy, which is sometimes important in God bringing His Word to pass (see commentary on Hosea 6:5).

“of every kind.” The Hebrew text is literally, “of every wing,” meaning of all the different kinds of birds.

“Gather yourselves from all around.” The Hebrew is more literally, “from every side.” The birds and wild animals that were going to assemble and eat the flesh of all the people who died in the Tribulation and Armageddon were the “guests” who God called to His great sacrifice and feast (cp. Zeph. 1:7; Rev. 19:17-21).

Eze 39:26

“They will bear their shame.” Although the Hebrew text has been amended to “forget” in many English versions, based on a belief that the accepted Hebrew text was miscopied, there is every reason to believe that people who lived in sin in this life will be aware of that in the next. There are a number of verses that speak of people being ashamed in the future (cp. Ezek. 16:54, 61; 39:26; 1 John 2:28).

Eze 39:27(top)
Eze 39:28

“and have gathered them to their own land.” There are many verses that prophesy Israel’s return to the land of Israel, the Promised Land. Although Israel did return from Babylon, this prophecy will not be fully fulfilled until in the Millennial Kingdom, as is clear from the context. [For more information on Israel’s return to the Promised Land, see commentary on Jeremiah 32:37].

“leave none of them there.” When God gathers Israel from the nations, He will leave no one behind.

Eze 39:29

“I will pour out my spirit.” The Hebrew is in the past tense, “I have poured out my spirit,” and is the prophetic perfect idiom in which a future event is spoken of as being in the past to assure people it will happen. There are many verses that say literally that the spirit will be poured out in the future (cp. Joel 2:28-29). [For more on the prophetic perfect, see commentary on Ephesians 2:6].
