After Ezekiel’s great temple vision, it is another two years before the word of the Lord comes to him again. This time it comes as a somewhat strange footnote to the judgment which Ezekiel had brought 16 years earlier against the city of Tyre. God seems to be telling Ezekiel that He is giving Egypt to Nebuchadnezzar as a consolation prize. For such a brief passage, it raises several interesting questions.
Do you think Nebuchadnezzar attacked Tyre and Egypt out of conscious obedience to the Lord?
