Search The Scriptures —Study 16 — Ezekiel 23

Study 16 From the Book of Ezekiel is: Ezekiel 23

This chapter resembles chapter 16. Samaria and Jerusalem are condemned for their unfaithfulness in seeking alliances with foreign nations and their gods. Their conduct is represented in unusually realistic figures to make it appear how loathsome and repulsive it has been.

  1. What is the main content of each of the four divisions of this chapter, namely verses 1-10, 11-21, 22-35 and 36-49?
  2. Trace how Jerusalem walked in the way of Samaria and even exceeded her in wickedness, and therefore must drain to the dregs the same cup of judgment. What were the origins of here idolatrous tendencies, both on the historical and on the religious level (verses 8, 19, 27, 35)? What warning does this contain for God’s people today?
