CommentaryBarnes' Notes on the Bible
Ezekiel had been employed four years in foretelling the calamities about to come to pass. He had been utterly disregarded by the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and received with apparent respect but with real incredulity by those in exile.

When he had spoken to me according to these words, I turned my face toward the ground and became speechless.
