Ezekiel - God will strengthen.
(1.) 1 Chronicles 24:16, "Jehezekel."
(2.) One of the great prophets, the son of Buzi the priest (Ezekiel 1:3). He was one of the Jewish exiles who settled at Tel-Abib, on the banks of the Chebar, "in the land of the Chaldeans." He was probably carried away captive with Jehoiachin (Ezekiel 1:2; 2 Kings 24:14) about 597 B.C.. His prophetic call came to him "in the fifth year of Jehoiachin's captivity" (594 B.C.). He had a house in the place of his exile, where he lost his wife, in the ninth year of his exile, by some sudden and unforeseen stroke (Ezekiel 8:1; Ezekiel 24:18). He held a prominent place among the exiles, and was frequently consulted by the elders (Ezekiel 8:1; Ezekiel 11:25; Ezekiel 14:1; Ezekiel 20:1). His ministry extended over twenty-three years (Ezekiel 29:17), 595-573 B.C., during part of which he was contemporary with Daniel (Ezekiel 14:14; Ezekiel 28:3) and Jeremiah, and probably also with Obadiah. The time and manner of his death are unknown. His reputed tomb is pointed out in the neighborhood of Bagdad, at a place called Keffil.
