Ezekiel 8:1

Context
A Desecrated Temple

8:1 In the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth of the month, 1  as I was sitting in my house with the elders of Judah sitting in front of me, the hand 2  of the sovereign Lord seized me. 3 

1 tc The LXX reads “In the sixth year, in the fifth month, on the fifth of the month.”

sn In the sixth year, in the sixth month, on the fifth of the month would be September 17, 592 b.c., about fourteen months after the initial vision.

2 tn Or “power.”

sn Hand in the OT can refer metaphorically to power, authority, or influence. In Ezekiel God’s hand being on the prophet is regularly associated with communication or a vision from God (3:14, 22; 8:1; 37:1; 40:1).

3 tn Heb “fell upon me there,” that is, God’s influence came over him.
