Verses 1-25

Ezekiel 11:2-3

The plans of the conspirators did not mature all at once Ezekiel on the Chebar had time to hear of them, and direct a prophecy against the 'men that devise mischief. These revolutionary spirits were not unaware of the risks they ran: 'This city is the caldron, and we be the flesh'. With a certain grim-ness of humour they acknowledge that it will be hot for them, but the strong city will protect them as the pot protects the flesh from the fire. Ezekiel tells them that the only flesh left in the pot will be the dead lying in the streets; the living will be pulled out and judged far away on the borders of Israel.

Prof. A. B. Davidson, The Exile and the Restoration, pp. 31, 32.
