Ezekiel 26:8 Parallel
CommentaryEzekiel 26:8 Parallel Commentaries
The time will come when enemy armies will build a wall to surround you and close you in on every side.
" 'See how the dirt ramps have been built up around the city to capture it! Because of wars, famines, and plagues, the city will be handed over to the Babylonians who are attacking it. What you have threatened to do has happened, as you can see.
On the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year of Zedekiah's reign, King Nebuchadnezzar of Babylon attacked Jerusalem with his entire army. They set up camp and built dirt ramps around the city walls.
The omens will indicate that he should go to the right, to Jerusalem. So he will set up his battering rams there, give the order to kill, raise a battle cry, aim the battering rams against the city gates, put up ramps, and set up blockades.
The people in the villages and on the mainland will die in battle. Then they will know that I am the LORD.
He will direct his battering rams against your walls, and he will cut down your towers with his axes.
They will make fun of kings and treat rulers as a joke. They will laugh at every fortified city and build a dirt ramp to capture it.
