Ezekiel 20:21 - William Styles

Ezek. 20:21, “The children rebelled against Me; they walked not in My statutes, neither kept My judgments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.” “natural life is not here intended, neither is that eternal life which Christ gives to His sheep. The life intended is of a civil and figurative character, by the terms of the covenant made with Israel by God when He brought them out of Egypt and organized them into a nation (Exod. 24:7; Heb. 8:9). The obedient observance of the statutes and judgments of this covenant was the tenure upon which they were to hold possession of their land, and which should be their covenant life thereon as a nation (Lev. 18:4, 5; Neh. 9:29).”—John Foreman.
