Ez. 12 : very positive chapter
about you + we as 144,000
(but sober about others..)
do note : this sun can
go Dark any day now
(eindtijd – goed leesbaar)


this chapter :

… no introduction needed – which is rather unusual : )        ;
we thought , please read part I about the parable Ezekiel enacts ,
and ponder what yóu think it means   —   so , before reading part II

(type-) corruptions : we could call it ‘strategic corruptions’ ;
considered what we know so far , chapter is 100% restored

Ez. 12

herstart : … Ezechiel verblijft onder ‘rebelse mensen’ (=de generaties van gelovigen) :
and·he-is-becoming word-of ieue to·me to·to-say-of
son-of human in·midst-of house-of the·rebellion you dwelling who eyes to·them
to·to-see-of and·not they-see ears to·them to·to-hear-of and·not they-hear that
house-of rebellion they

The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying, Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst
of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear,
and hear not: for they [are] a rebellious house.

  • restart : … Ezekiel dwells among ‘a rebellious people’  (=the generations of believers) :

line ,

  • [=’no , the title is not Too Harsh : for this is the intention of this chapter ;
    it is true that old-Ishral did not understand this chapter   —
    but neither do most believers , today ;
    2) ‘house’ ,
    we adapted the term into the more understandable “people” ;
    line :]

1 [=then] – the word [in right direction] of – IEUE – becomes – to me , saying :
son of – the adm-man ,
you (are) – dwelling – in the midst of – a rebellious [=’loving this world’] – (..people..) ,
[+as] (the ones) – who (-ashr) (have) eyes – to see – [=but] (do) – not – see ,
[+and] (have) ears – to hear – [=but] (do) – not – hear ;
that=because – they (are) – a rebellious [=’loving this world’] – (..people) ;

… nu wordt Ezechiel gevraagd een gelijkenis uit te beelden :
and·you son-of human makedo-you ! for·you luggages-of deportation and·deport-
yourself ! by-day to·eyes-of·them and·you-deport-yoursel from·placeri-of·you to
placeri another to·eyes-of·them perhaps they-shall-see that house-of rebellion they
and·you-bring-forth luggages-of·you as·luggages-of deportation by-day to·eyes-of·them
and·you you-shall-go-forth in·the·evening to·eyes-of·them as·ones-being-brought-forth-of
to·eyes-of·them burrow-you ! for·you in·the·sidewall and·you-bring-forth in·him
to·eyes-of·them on shoulder you-shall-carry in·the·twilight you-shall-bring-forth
faces-of·you you-shall-cover and·not you-shall-see the·earth that miracle
I-give·you to·house-of ishral
and·I-am-doing so as·which I-am-instructed luggages-of·me I-bring-forth as·luggages-of
deportation by-day and·in·the·evening I-burrow for·me in·the·sidewall in·hand in·the·
twilight I-bring-forth on shoulder I-carry to·eyes-of·them

Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing, and remove by day in their
sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to another place in their sight: it may be they
will consider, though they [be] a rebellious house. Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff
by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight,
as they that go forth into captivity.
Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby. In their sight shalt thou bear
[it] upon [thy] shoulders, [and] carry [it] forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face,
that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee [for] a sign unto the house of Israel. And I
did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in
the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought [it] forth in the twilight,
[and] I bare [it] upon [my] shoulder in their sight.

  • context : … now Ezechiel is asked to enact a parable :

line ,

  • [=’the “removing” reads “exile” (-golh)                              (a negative term) ;
    we used the proper “journey”, to escape this snare of Esau later on in the chapter ;
    line :]

3 (..now..) (ath=oth) , son of – the adm-man ,
prepare you – for yourself – [+your] belongings [=for] – (..a journey..) (golh=gur) ,
and=as (..revealing [+this]..) (glh=glh) – [+during] daylight , [=in] their [=’peoples’] sight ;
[=because]      +
you (will make) (..a journey..) – from your place – to – anóther – place , [=in] their sight :
[so-] perhaps – they (will) see (-the point) ,
that=though – they (are) – a house of – rebellion [=’loving this world’] ;

4 [=therefore] , bring forth      +
your belongings – [+for] (..a journey..) (golh=gur)[..] [+during] daylight , [=in] their sight ;
and you (will) gó forth – in the evening , [=in] their sight ,
[you-] as one going forth – [+on] (..a journey..) (golh=gur) :               + 


5 [but do it this way :]
you (must) dig – [=through] the wall – (..+of your house..) , [=in] their sight ,
[=because] you (will) go forth – [=through] it [=’the hole, now’] ;
you (must) carry – [=your] (..belongings..) (l-o=kli) – [=upon] – [+your] shoulders ,
[+when] – you (will) (..go..) forth – in the dark [-of evening] ,
[+and] you (must) cover – your face – [=so] – you (will) – not – [be able to-] see – the land ,
that=because – I give you – [+to] (..a sign..) – [=for] the [people of the-] house – Ishral ;

7                                                                                                 [next : Ezekiel does what was asked]
[=then] I do – exactly – which – I (was) instructed (-to) :
I bring forth – my belongings – [now-] as the belongings [=for] (..a journey..) , by daylight ;
[=then] in the [dark of the-] evening – I dig – [=through] the wall – [=with] [+my] hands ,

… de gelijkenis verklaard : Christus haalt de 144,000 uit deze aarde :

And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying, Son of man, hath not
the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou? Say thou
unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden [concerneth] the prince in Jerusalem,
and all the house of Israel that [are] among them.
Say, I [am] your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove
[and] go into captivity. And the prince that [is] among them shall bear upon [his] shoulder
in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby:
he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with [his] eyes.

And I will scatter toward every wind all that [are] about him to help him, and all his bands;
and I will draw out the sword after them. And they shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I
shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries. But I will leave
a few men of them from the sword, from the famine, and from the pestilence; that they

Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with

of Jerusalem, [and] of the land of Israel; They shall eat their bread with carefulness, and drink
their water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all that is therein,
because of the violence of all them that dwell therein. And the cities that are inhabited
shall be laid waste, and the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I [am] the LORD.cContext :

And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Son of man, what [is] that proverb
[that] ye have in the land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?
Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will make this proverb to cease, and they
shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but say unto them, The days are at hand, and the
effect of every vision. For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination
within the house of Israel.
For I [am] the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass;
it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word,
and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD. Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
Son of man, behold, [they of] the house of Israel say, The vision that he seeth [is] for
many days [to come], and he prophesieth of the times [that are] far off. Therefore say
unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more,
but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.
