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 

Ezekiel 24:18

Context

24:18 So I spoke to the people in the morning, and my wife died in the evening. In the morning 4  I acted just as I was commanded.

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.

4 tn This may refer to the following morning. For a discussion of various interpretive options in understanding the chronology reflected in verse 18, see D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 1:790.
