Chapter Summary

Ezekiel is the only book in the Old Testament (OT) which opens with a vision of God, and further it is received in a most unexpected place. Detailed descriptions of the vision of God's glory frame messages of judgment in the opening major portion of chs. 1-11: the vision is seen in exile, leading to Ezekiel's call to announce Lord's word to an 'embittering' people, expressed in several messages of judgment, some with symbolic action, before he is taken in a vision to see the horrific behaviour of the leaders in the temple and then to see God's glory leaving the temple. In B the opening major section is 1:1-3:21, the structure explicitly linking vision and call: the purpose of the vision is to commission Ezekiel, the God who commissions is the God of the vision, and the indescribable glory of the vision reinforces the importance of the message.
