Ezra 1:7 Commentary - English Annotations on the Holy Bible by Matthew Poole

Object. These are said to have been cut in pieces, 2Ki 24:13; how then are they here returned?

Answ. That Hebrew word used 2Ki 24:13, signifies not so properly to

cut in pieces as to

cut off, as from the use of the word, Deu 25:12; 2Sa 4:12; 2Ki 18:16; Jer 9:26. And these vessels, when they were taken away from the temple, might very well be said to be cut off from it, because they had for so long time been so constantly, and as it were inseparably, united to it, and kept in it. In like manner,

the meat-offering and drink-offering are said to be cut off from the house of the Lord, Joe 1:9. And it is very improbable that they should deface and cut in pieces these magnificent vessels, which they could so easily transport whole to Babylon. Although, if some of the larger of them had been cut into two or more parts, yet the parts of them might be delivered to the Jews, who could, without great difficulty, restore them to their former unity and form.
