Ezekiel blog: What comes around….

I’ve made it to a new section of Ezekiel’s writing. I refer to it as the roll call of nations. It begins with Chapter 25 and a quick walk through judgements on Ammon, Edom, Moab, and Phillistia; clockwise around the nations of Judah and Israel.  Interestingly, it starts with the Ammonites, the very people that God warned the people of Israel about way back in the book of Judges during the recounting of the Exodus story, eg. don’t start worshipping their idols, etc.

Reading through this, at a high level, a couple of morals can be inferred; the chiefest of which is that God doesn’t seem to like it when people gloat over the misfortunes of others.

In short, however, all of these sub-chapters can be summed up with the phrase, “what comes around, goes around.”
