Ezekiel’s calling is compared to a lookout on the city walls.
Similar to 3:16-21, this passage is an extended analogy, comparing Ezekiel’s role as prophet to a lookout or watchman on the walls during a battle. He announces God’s judgment as a warning to the people, and failure to fulfill his duty could result in severe punishment. Ezekiel’s job is to announce God’s judgment, just as the watchman would send a warning trumpet call. How individuals respond to his warning is between them and God; Ezekiel’s task is to proclaim God’s word. The wicked who Repentance is a central biblical teaching. All people are sinful and God desires that all people repent of their sins. The Hebrew word for repent means to "turn away" from sin. The Greek word for repentance means to "change on'e mind," more specifically, it means... More will be spared; likewise the A righteous person is one who is ethical and faithful to God's covenant. Righteousness in the Old Testament is an attitude of God; in the New Testament it is a gift of God through grace. In the New Testament righteousness is a relationship with God... More who do wrong will perish.
