Ezekiel 11-12

Ezekiel 11-12

Chapter 11: The Visions: Destruction of Israel

Ezekiel sees a vision of the destruction of Jerusalem and the captivity of the jews. The judgments of God are delivered against those who remained in Jerusalem and to them who mocked the predictions of the prophets. God promises favour to those who went into captivity, and ultimately promises a restoration in the last days. The shechinah leaves the city.

Chapter 12: Scattering among all nations

The Lord speaks to Ezekiel and tells him that the people of Jerusalem “…have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.” (Ezekiel 12:2) God then commands Ezekiel to remove his stuff from one place to another, as a type of displacement that the people of Jerusalem will soon undergo. Disaster will soon fall upon the nations and they will be scattered.
