A prophet who wrote the book of Ezekiel in the Old Testament. He was a priest of the family of Zadok and one of the Jewish captives carried away by Nebuchadnezzar. He settled with the Jewish exiles in Babylon and prophesied during a period of twenty-two years, from 592 to 570 B.C.

The book of Ezekiel

The book of Ezekiel can be separated into four divisions. Chapters 1–3 tell about a vision of God and Ezekiel’s call to serve; chapters 4–24 speak of judgments on Jerusalem and why they were given; chapters 25–32 proclaim judgments on the nations; and chapters 33–48 record visions of latter-day Israel.
