Search The Scriptures —Study 4 — Ezekiel 6 and 7

Study 4 From the Book of Ezekiel is: Ezekiel 6 and 7

  1. Chapter 6. Against what sin is the Lord’s anger particularly directed? In what forms is it found today?
  2. What refrain frequently recurs in these two chapters? What does it teach us about the purpose behind Ezekiel’s prophesying?
  3. Contrast the phrase ‘I will punish you according to your ways’ (7:9) with Ps. 103:10; and see Pr. 1:24, 29-31; 2 Cor. 6:1, 2. What warning for the careless and indifferent does this contrast suggest?
  4. What can be learnt from 7:14-27 about the right and wrong uses of money? In what ways can it become a stumbling-block to the follower of Christ?

Notes

  1. 6:3. ‘Your high places’: the word originally meant a height or eminence. But as these were used as the sites of temples and shrines, the word came to mean ‘sanctuaries’, as here. Cf. Dt. 12:2, 3.
  2. 7:20. ‘They prided themselves upon the beauty of their silver and their gold, and make out of them…idols’ (Moffat). Cf. Ho. 2:8.
