Ezekiel 12:13

My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

Net, as was done in war, and to catch wild beasts, Jeremias xvi. 16. (Calmet) Not see it, because his eyes shall be put out by Nabuchodonosor. (Challoner) The false prophets thought they perceived a contradiction here; (Worthington) and Sedecias, confronting it with Jeremias xxxviii. 18., disregarded both. (Josephus, Antiquities x. 10.) This was more pardonable than for Paine to object this as an inconsistency, after the event has so clearly verified the predictions of both, and showed their consent. (Haydock) The unhappy prince saw too late the true meaning. (Calmet) He was put in a cage, like a wild beast, and conveyed blind to Babylon. (St. Jerome)

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation. - 2 Peter 1:20
