Ezekiel 21-22

Ezekiel 21:18-20 The sign to Rabbah

Chapter 21

Yahweh’s rant continues. Sample – “I will cut off both the righteous and the wicked! I will draw my sword against everyone in the land from south to north. Everyone in the world will know that I am the Lord.” (v 4-5).

Following that, there’s a warning for king of Israel, containing this line about how the king of Babylon decides which territory to invade – “He calls his magicians to look for omens. They cast lots by shaking arrows from the quiver. They inspect the livers of animal sacrifices.” (v 21) So much for military strategy!

Next up, prophesy that’s pretty much open to interpretation – “I will surely destroy the kingdom. And it will not be restored until the one appears who has the right to judge it.” (v 27) Could be anyone – A new king? Jesus? Another Messiah? Gandhi? And then the rant resumes, directed at the Ammonites. (v 28-32)

Chapter 22

More ranting. In v 6-12 and 25-29 there are lists of acts which are considered sinful. Read them and decide if you agree all of them are worthy of the death penalty.
