New Defender's Study Bible Notes

21:3 draw forth my sword. The symbol of God’s unsheathed sword exercising judgment against His people is repeatedly emphasized in this chapter (Ezekiel 21:3,4,5,9,11,14,15,19,20,28,30, etc.). God’s symbolic sword is exercised physically as “the sword of the king of Babylon” (Ezekiel 21:19).
