14即使有挪亚、但以理和约伯这三个人,他们也只能因自己的义救自己的性命。这是主耶和华的宣告。
14Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.
14 Verse 14. Though-Noah, Daniel, and Job] The intercession even of

the holiest of men shall not avert my judgments. Noah, though a

righteous man, could not by his intercession preserve the old

world from being drowned. Job, though a righteous man, could not

preserve his children from being killed by the fall of their

house. Daniel, though a righteous man, could not prevent the

captivity of his country. Daniel must have been contemporary with

Ezekiel. He was taken captive in the third year of Jehoiakim,

. After this Jeholakim reigned

eight years, . And this prophecy, as appears from

, was uttered in the

sixth year of Jehoiachin's captivity, who succeeded Jehoiakim,

and reigned only three months, . Therefore at this

time Daniel had been fourteen years in captivity. See Newcome.

Even at this time he had gained much public celebrity. From this

account we may infer that Job was as real a person as Noah

or Daniel; and of their identity no man has pretended to doubt.

When God, as above, has determined to punish a nation, no

intercession shall avail. Personal holiness alone can prevent

these evils; but the holiness of any man can only avail for

himself.
