Ezekiel 20

Verses 1-49

CHAPTERS 20-24

Further and Final Predictions Concerning the judgment of Jerusalem

1. Jehovah rehearses His mercies bestowed upon Israel (Ezekiel 20:1-49 )

2. The impending judgment announced (Ezekiel 21:1-32 )

3. Jerusalem’s sins and whoredom (Ezekiel 22:1-31 ; Ezekiel 23:1-49 )

4. The parable of the boiling pot and the last word (Ezekiel 24:1-27 )

Ezekiel 20:1-49 . The chapter contains a divine retrospect and an arraignment of the people for their national sins. The following division will greatly assist in an analytical study of this chapter. Ezekiel 20:1-9 describe the nation’s sins in Egypt. Ezekiel 20:10-17 give the history of the first generation which came out of Egypt. It is a wonderful condensed rehearsal of all they were and what the Lord had done for them. The record of the second generation is contained in Ezekiel 20:18-26 . This is followed by a description of their unfaithfulness and sins in the land (Ezekiel 20:27-32 ). Judgment then is announced and a future restoration promised. Ezekiel 20:40-44 are yet to be fulfilled. The fire of judgment to sweep over the south field (Judah) is announced in the final paragraph (Ezekiel 20:45-49 ).
