5 ¶ And say vnto them, Thus saith the Lord God, In the day when I chose Israel, and lifted vp mine hand vnto the seed of the house of Iacob, and made my selfe knowen vnto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted vp mine hand vnto them, saying, I am the Lord your God,
8 But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken vnto mee: they did not euery man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idoles of Egypt: then I said, I will powre out my furie vpon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the middest of the land of Egypt.
9 But I wrought for my names sake that it should not be polluted before the heathen, among whom they were, in whose sight I made my selfe knowen vnto them, in bringing them foorth out of the land of Egypt.
13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wildernesse: they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my iudgements, which if a man doe, hee shall euen liue in them, and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I said I would powre out my furie vpon them in the wildernesse, to consume them:
21 Notwithstanding the children rebelled against me: they walked not in my statutes, neither kept my iudgements to doe them, which if a man doe, hee shall euen liue in them; they polluted my Sabbaths: then I said I would powre out my furie vpon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the wildernesse.
26 And I polluted them in their owne gifts, in that they caused to passe through the fire all that openeth the wombe, that I might make them desolate, to the end, that they might know that I am the Lord.
27 ¶ Therefore sonne of man, speake vnto the house of Israel, and say vnto them, Thus saith the Lord God, Yet in this your fathers haue blasphemed me, in that they haue committed a trespasse against me.
28 For when I had brought them into the land, for the which I lifted vp mine hand to giue it to them, then they saw euery high hill, and all the thicke trees, and they offered there their sacrifices, and there they presented the prouocation of their offering: there also they made their sweet sauour, and powred out there their drinke offerings.
31 For when yee offer your gifts, when yee make your sonnes to passe through the fire, ye pollute your selues with all your idoles euen vnto this day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I liue, saith the Lord God, I will not be inquired of by you.
38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that transgresse against mee: I will bring them foorth out of the countrey where they soiourne, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel, and yee shall know that I am the Lord.
39 As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord God, Goe yee, serue ye euery one his idoles, and hereafter also, if ye wil not hearken vnto me: but pollute ye my holy Name no more with your gifts, and with your idoles.
40 For in mine holy mountaine, in the mountaine of the height of Israel, saith the Lord God, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them in the land serue me: there will I accept them, and there wil I require your offerings, and the first fruits of your oblations, with all your holy things.
41 I will accept you with your sweet sauour, when I bring you out from the people, and gather you out of the countreys wherein yee haue bene scattered, and I wil be sanctified in you before the heathen.
44 And ye shal know that I am the Lord, when I haue wrought with you for my Names sake, not according to your wicked wayes, nor according to your corrupt doings, O yee house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
47 And say to the forest of þe South, Heare the word of the Lord: Thus saith the Lord God; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall deuoure euery greene tree in thee, and euery dry tree: the flaming flame shal not be quenched, and all faces from the South to the North shalbe burnt therein.

Gordon's Ezekiel Chapter 20 comment about verse 35 on 12/12/2012, 9:48pm...
Revelations 12 states Israel will be fed in this "wilderness of the nations" for a period of 1,260 days. I interpret that symbolically to mean that Israel would be exiled throughout the nations but would be fed, meaning that Israel would survive. The only question I have is about the 1,260 days. If that is symbolic also, what does it mean?
Alexander Zephyr's Ezekiel Chapter 20 comment about verse 35 on 6/06/2012, 7:50pm...
The same what I think of Ezekiel 37:1, 12: no real physical resurrection of the dead (open graves and dry bones)and no real physical geographical place of 'The Wilderness of the nations, as all of symbolical, metaphorical expressions are 'in line with the fantastic symbolism of Ezekiel throughout his entire Book. So,
why are we looking for particular geographical location of ‘The Wilderness of the nations’, if Ezekiel just uses this metaphorical symbol to show the spiritual emptiness of idolatrous nations who do not know Almighty God of Israel and His Immortal Torah. That is why God wants His People Israel get out of this ‘Wilderness’!
Doorgunner's Ezekiel Chapter 20 comment about verse 25 on 2/05/2012, 11:49am...
(God gave them the Commandments, which could bring Peace, but they despised the Commandments because of the hardness of their hearts)Therefore God gave them Laws that no sane man should live by: an eye for an eye...a tooth for a tooth. Because God ordered them to do such things, they justified it by their hardened hearts. And he gave them judgements that they never should have carried out: When you enter into a city that God has given you, slay the young and the old, the men and the women, the children and the animals. And they did it (carried out his judgements that he gave them, hoping that they would come to their senses), but they did it willingly because their hearts were not right with God. This is why Jesus told them (their decendants) "It has been said of Old...".
