  • 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
    2 "Son of man, set your face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,
    3 and say, You mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD! Thus says the Lord GOD to the mountains and the hills, to the ravines and the valleys: Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high places.
    4 Your altars shall become desolate, and your incense altars shall be broken, and I will cast down your slain before your idols.
    5 And I will lay the dead bodies of the people of Israel before their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars.
    6 Wherever you dwell, the cities shall be waste and the high places ruined, so that your altars will be waste and ruined, your idols broken and destroyed, your incense altars cut down, and your works wiped out.
    7 And the slain shall fall in your midst, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
    8 "Yet I will leave some of you alive. When you have among the nations some who escape the sword, and when you are scattered through the countries,
    9 then those of you who escape will remember me among the nations where they are carried captive, how I have been broken over their whoring heart that has departed from me and over their eyes that go whoring after their idols. And they will be loathsome in
    10 And they shall know that I am the LORD. I have not said in vain that I would do this evil to them."
    11 Thus says the Lord GOD: "Clap your hands and stamp your foot and say, Alas, because of all the evil abominations of the house of Israel, for they shall fall by the sword, by famine, and by pestilence.
    12 He who is far off shall die of pestilence, and he who is near shall fall by the sword, and he who is left and is preserved shall die of famine. Thus I will spend my fury upon them.
    13 And you shall know that I am the LORD, when their slain lie among their idols around their altars, on every high hill, on all the mountaintops, under every green tree, and under every leafy oak, wherever they offered pleasing aroma to all their idols.
    14 And I will stretch out my hand against them and make the land desolate and waste, in all their dwelling places, from the wilderness to Riblah. Then they will know that I am the LORD."

    2019-07-19   God declared judgment upon the mountains of Israel. Why is he judging the mountains? It is because the people of Israel have set up an altar for idols for each mountain.

이해하기(Understanding)
The people of Judah, currently captives of Babylon, waited for the day when Jerusalem would be restored so they could return. However, Ezekiel prophesied that Jerusalem will fall and experience even greater destruction. God completely cleansed the mountains that served as an idol of worship for the Israelites. Those that still remained in Jerusalem would die and those who survived would become captives. People did not repent as they enjoyed much abundance and security, and it is only when they were met with destruction and prison life, that they slowly begin to repent (vv. 1-10).
Judeans under Babylon’s control turn their ears against Ezekiel’s prophecy that promised God would bring destruction not restoration. Ezekiel claps and stomps his feet in hopes to grab the people’s attention as he tries to deliver God’s message until the end (vv. 11-14).



적용하기(Applying)
Who is God?
God violently judges those that indulge in idol worship. He turned the mountains into a wasteland in his judgement because that was where the altars were. Are there any idols that impede your relationship with God from growing?

What is the lesson for me(us)?
The judge’s purpose is not destruction but restoration. For the Israelites, they would not go back to God until everything that they believe to be more important than God was taken away. In order to restore your relationship with God, what trials is God giving you?


기도하기(Praying)
Help to rid me of any idols that have become more important than you Lord.
