Ezekiel 14

Ezekiel 14

Ezekiel 14:3 - "these men have taken their idols into their hearts" Not only paying lip service to an idol, but taking it into their hearts.

Ezekiel 14:4-5 - If you come to God, through his prophet, with idols in you heart, He will answer as if you brought them all with you. "Oh, I see you've brought your job, a TV, your family and your bank account along to speak to Me ... "

Ezekiel 14:9 - Huh? If the prophet is deceived and speaks, it's because God deceived him? Yet, he's still to be destroyed by God? I'm confused.

Ezekiel 14:22-23 - God answers Ezekiel's earlier question. Some will survive the wrath and judgement to come. Ezekiel will see them come out and be consoled as he sees their deeds and ways.

I wonder if those who survived were able to read Ezekiel's words? Did they look back and see that God compares them here, indirectly, to Noah, Daniel and Job?
