Ezekiel 6:8-10 – Some Are Spared Destruction

BIBLE TEXT

Ezekiel 6:8-10

SUMMARY

In the midst of judgment, God will spare some of the Judeans from the coming doom upon the land.

ANALYSIS

After a condemnation of the idolatry of Judah on the “mountains of Israel” (a reference to the “high places” where local gods-probably Canaanite-were worshipped), the Lord will punish the land and high places with destruction (6:1-7). Yet some people will escape the fall of Judah; God will “spare some” from destruction (6:8). These will be carried captive into exile, where they can reflect upon their sin, repent, and learn again of the Lord, who alone is God (6:10).
