Ezekiel 22

Ezekiel 22

imagesBN0FB6HG

As Fairbairn says, this chapter is straightforward to interpret listing many of the sins that the Israelites were guilty of and which caused them to be thrown into the fire of God’s anger in Babylon where he would separate the dross from the silver. The sins included idolatry, lust of the worst sort (even incest), treachery, oppression and bloodshed in stark contrast to what Moses had been commanded in Leviticus 28-30 where holiness and separation from the heathen was commanded. From dispersing them among the nations God would sift them, as he always does in judgment, and no one would any longer be able to repair the breach (not even Jeremiah who had been told he ought not to pray for them any more in Jer.11:14).
