Ezekiel 4:1 Commentary - The Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges

1. take thee a tile ] or, brick. The brick would be such as those found in the ruins of the cities of Mesopotamia, covered with figures and inscriptions, engraved on them when still moist. Libraries of such bricks have been found by explorers in this region, and deciphered. For the city read a city.

Ch. Eze 4:1-3. Symbolical siege of Jerusalem

The prophet is commanded to take a brick (it is to be supposed still soft) and portray on it a city, even Jerusalem. Around the city he is to draw representations of siege operations, towers, a mound, camps and battering-rams. Between him and the city he is to set an iron plate to represent an iron wall. The determination of the besiegers is shewn by his attitude, he sets his face against the city. All this is symbol of a hard siege, carried on with great determination and apparatus against a lofty city.

Second Section. Ch. Eze 3:22 to Eze 7:27

The second section of the Book contains these parts:

(1) Ch. Eze 3:22-27. A preface in which the prophet is commanded to confine himself to his own house, and abandon for a time his public ministry.

(2) Ch. Eze 4:1-4. A series of symbols representing the siege of Jerusalem, the scarcity during it, the pollution of the people in exile among the nations, and the terrible fate of the inhabitants on the capture of the city.

(3) Ch. Eze 5:5-17. Exposition of these symbols.

(4) Ch. 6. Prophecy against the mountains of Israel, the seats of Idolatry.

(5) Ch. 7. Dirge over the downfall of the state.
