Daily Bible Reading: Ezekiel 12-13, Proverbs 10
Ezekiel 12:1-2 (NKJV) Now the word of the LORD came to me, saying: “Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, which has eyes to see but does not see, and ears to hear but does not hear; for they are a rebellious house.
2Son of man, thou dwellest. in the midst of. a rebellious. house, which. have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house. McGee: Five times in this chapter (vv. 1, 8, 17, 21, and 26), Ezekiel says, The word of the Lord came unto me, saying. Do you get the impression that Ezekiel is trying to tell these people that he is giving them the Word of the Lord? He is giving them nothing short of that. Isaiah said the same thing, Having eyes to see, they see not; ears to hear, they hear not; least at any time they see with their eyes and hear with their ears and be saved (Isaiah 6:10). Jeremiah accused them of the same thing, You don t see, you don t hear. David said, They that are worshipping the idols have become like unto the idols, which cannot see, which cannot move, which cannot hear. The Lord came to Ezekiel with another message. Because it is not dated, and because the book follows a chronological sequence of events, most commentators believed that this word from the Lord came to Ezekiel shortly after he received the vision in chapters 8—11. God told His servant that the people among whom he lived, the house of Israel, were rebellious against Him (cf. 2:3-8). Their blindness to the things that they. saw and their deafness to His words, after over a year of Ezekiel s ministry, were the result of their rebellious condition (cf. Deut. 29:1-4; Isa. 6:9-10; Jer. 5:21; Matt. 13:13-15; Mark 8:18; John 12:39-40; Acts 28:26-27). Sin blinds the heart and mind. Like Samson, who could not see that his chosen path was leading to the loss of his ministry, the sinner does not see the ultimate consequences. of sin that produces death and destruction (Judg 13—16; cf Isa 6:9-13; Rom 6:23).
Proverbs 10:1-5 (NKJV) The Proverbs of Solomon: A wise son makes a glad father, But a foolish son is the grief of his mother. Treasures of wickedness profit nothing, But righteousness delivers from death. The LORD will not allow the righteous soul to famish, But He casts away the desire of the wicked. He who has a slack hand becomes poor, But the hand of the diligent makes rich. He who gathers in summer is a wise son; He who sleeps in harvest is a son who causes shame.
