Ezekiel

from Holy Bible (KJV) – Bible Table of Contents on Rap Genius

Meaning

Ezekiel was carried into exile in Babylon, where he received his call and exercised his prophetic ministry. His dual role of prophet-priest and his position as “watchman” over his people make Ezekiel unique among the prophets and may account for the uniqueness of his message and his methods of delivery.

The book contains 48 chapters, divided at the halfway point by the fall of Jerusalem. Ezekiel’s prophecies before this event are chiefly messages of condemnation upon Judah for her sin; following the city’s fall, the prophet speaks to helpless people of the hope and certainty of restoration to their homeland and of worship again in the Temple.
