Ezekiel 40

Geneva Study BibleGeneva Study Bible

Verse 1

40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the {a} beginning of the year, in the tenth [day] of the month, in the fourteenth year after the city was smitten, in the same day the hand of the LORD was upon me, and brought me there.

(a) The Jews counted the beginning of the year after two sorts: for their feasts they began to count in March and for their other affairs in September: so that this is to be understood of September.

Verse 3

40:3 And he brought me there, and, behold, [there was] a {b} man, whose appearance [was] like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.

(b) Which was an angel in the form of a man, that came to measure out this building.
