Ezekiel

Additional Links

Son of Buzi, a prophet of the sacerdotal race, was carried captive to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar, with Jehoiachin king of Judah, B. C. 598, and placed by the river Chebar. See Ezekiel 1:1 , which answers to the fifth year of Ezekiel's captivity. The elders of Israel resorted to him for direction, Ezra 8:1 10:44,44,44 . He prophesied twenty years, B. C. 595-575, till the fourteenth year after the final captivity of Jerusalem. During the first eight years he was contemporary with Jeremiah. Daniel also lived at the same time, Ezekiel 14:14,16 28:3 , though most of his predictions are of a later date.

The BOOK OF EZEKIEL abounds with sublime visions of the divine glory, and awful denunciations against Israel for their rebellious spirit against God, and the abominations of their idolatry, Ezekiel 1:1-24:27 . It contains also similar denunciations against Tyre and other hostile nations, Ezekiel 25:1-32:32 . The latter part of the book contains oracles respecting the return and restoration of the people of God, Ezekiel 33:1-48:35 .
