Ezekiel

Ezekiel 25-32: Prophecies

There are several prophecies that foretell all the destruction we saw back in Jeremiah 46-52. Here are those received by Ezekiel.


Chapter twenty five

Prophecies against Ammon, Moab, Seir, Edom, and Philistia.


Chapter twenty six

Prophecies against Tyre, which is drowned in a very legend-of-Atlantis kind of way. There is some use of feminine pronouns in reference to the city of Tyre and “daughter” for other cities close to it or like it.


Chapter twenty seven

A lament for Tyre with some references to it as a woman and use of feminine pronouns and descriptions of beauty that will be lost now.


Chapter twenty eight

Prophecies against the prince of Tyre and Sidon. There is also a lament for the king of Tyre and an assurance for Israel that they will be brought back together and that they are not the only nation God is dealing with this way.


Chapter twenty nine

A prophesy against Egypt that includes subordinate and supporting countries. There’s also a part that says they will never again rule over other nations or achieve their former glory. It’ll be interesting to see if the timeline matches up…..

As with Israel and Tyre, Babylon is the country coming in and taking everyone over and there’s an interesting mention of them getting paid through what they plunder of Egypt. He specifically calls it “wages for his army”.


Chapter thirty

God directs Ezekiel to deliver a lament for Egypt along with reiterate that Babylon will come and take them down. He does mention quite a few of the surrounding and supporting cities by name that will also be destroyed because of them.


Chapter thirty one

Prophecy that the Pharaoh will die “with all his multitude”.


Chapter thirty two

There’s a lament for Egypt to be chanted by “the daughters of the nations” over Egypt and “all her multitude”. Again some of those nations or cities are named. Those named are Assyria, Sidon, Elam, Meshech-Tubal, and Edom.


Chapter links go to the ESV translations at Biblehub.com but I’m reading from the ESV Global Study Bible, which is available for free on the Kindle Reading App.
