Eze 18:2
18:2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land
     of Israel, saying, {a} The fathers have eaten sour grapes,
     and the children's teeth are set on edge?

     (a) The people murmured at the chastising of the Lord, and
         therefore used this proverb meaning that their fathers
         had sinned and their children were punished for their
         transgressions. \\See Geneva "Jer 31:29"\\

Eze 18:6
18:6 [And] hath not eaten {b} upon the mountains, neither hath
     lifted up his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel,
     neither hath defiled his neighbour's wife, neither hath
     come near to a polluted woman,

     (b) If he has not eaten flesh that has been offered up to
         idols, to honour them by it.

Eze 18:13
18:13 Hath given forth upon interest, and hath taken increase:
      shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all
      these abominations; {c} he shall surely die; his blood
      shall be upon him.

      (c) He shows how the son is punished for his father's sin:
          that is, if he is wicked as his father was and does
          not repent, he will be punished as his father was, or
          else not.

Eze 18:21
18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath
      committed, and keep all my {d} statutes, and do that which
      is lawful and right, he shall surely live, he shall not

      (d) He joins the observation of the commandments with
          repentance; for none can repent indeed, unless he
          labour to keep the Law.

Eze 18:22
18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall
      not be mentioned to him: in his {e} righteousness that he
      hath done he shall live.

      (e) That is, in the fruit of his faith which declares that
          God accepts him.

Eze 18:23
18:23 {f} Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die?
      saith the Lord GOD: [and] not that he should return from
      his ways, and live?

      (f) He speaks this to commend God's mercy to poor sinners,
          who rather is ready to pardon than to punish, as his
          long suffering declares, Eze 33:11. Though God
          in his eternal counsel appointed the death and
          damnation of the reprobate, yet the end of his counsel
          was not their death only, but chiefly his own glory.
          Also because he does not approve sin, therefore it is
          here said that he would have them turn away from it
          that they might live.

Eze 18:24
18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his
      righteousness, and committeth iniquity, [and] doeth
      according to all the abominations that the wicked [man]
      doeth, shall he live? All his {g} righteousness that he
      hath done shall not be mentioned: in his trespass that he
      hath trespassed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in
      them shall he die.

      (g) That is, the false opinion that the hypocrites have of
          their righteousness.

Eze 18:25
18:25 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not {h} equal.  Hear
      now, O house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your
      ways unequal?

      (h) In punishing the father with the children.

Eze 18:31
18:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, by which ye
      have transgressed; and make {i} you a new heart and a new
      spirit: for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

      (i) He shows that man cannot forsake his wickedness, till
          his heart is changed which is only the work of God.
