Government, When Your
Roles misguided The Lords Spirit lifted me up and took me to the east gate of the temple, where I saw twenty-five men, including the two leaders, Jaazaniah son of Azzur and Pelatiah son of Benaiah.
The Lord said, Ezekiel, son of man, these men are making evil plans and giving dangerous advice to the people of Jerusalem. They say things like, Lets build more houses. This city is like a cooking pot over a fire, and we are the meat, but at least the pot keeps us from being burned in the fire.
So, Ezekiel, condemn them! The Lords
control of me and told me to tell these leaders: I, the Lord God, know what you leaders are saying. You have murdered so many people that the city is filled with dead bodies!
This city is indeed a cooking pot, but the bodies of those you killed are the meat. And so I will force you to leave Jerusalem, 8 and Ill send armies to attack you, just as you fear.
Then you will be captured and punished by foreign enemies. You will be killed in your own country, but not before you realize that I, the Lord, have done these things. You leaders claim to be meat in a cooking pot, but you wont be protected by this city. Roles misguided.
No, you will die at the border of Israel. You will realize that while you were following the
laws of nearby nations
, you were disobeying my laws and teachings. And I am the Lord! Before I finished speaking, Pelatiah dropped dead. I bowed down and cried out, Please, Lord God, dont kill everyone left in Israel. Ezekiel 11:1-13
