Wesley's Notes for Ezekiel 1:2


1:2 The month - Thamus, as ver.#1|, answering to our June and July. Fifth year - This account observed will guide us in computing the times referred to ver.#1|. These five of Jehoiachin, and the eleven of his predecessor, added to fourteen of Josiah's reign, after he found the law, make up thirty years, ver.#1|. Jehoiachin - Who is also called Jechoniah, and Coniah. It may be of use to keep an account, when and where God has manifested himself to us in a peculiar manner. Remember, O my soul, what thou didst receive at such a time, at such a place: tell others what God did for thee.
