Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit,
says Yahweh of Hosts. Zechariah 4:6
Lift up your heads, O gates, and be lifted up, O ancient doors,
That the King of Glory may come in! Who is this King of Glory?
Yahweh of Hosts: He is the King of Glory. Psalm 24:9-10
BACKGROUND NOTE: The world-changing Battle of Carchemish was fought and won in 605 B.C. by Nebuchadnezzar, prince and soon to be king of the Neo-Babylonian Empire.
However, despite Jeremiah's warnings (e.g., 22:13-19), Judah twice rebels, forcing Nebuchadnezzar to return and put down the rebellion. There were three primary Judean deportations to Babylon under Nebuchadnezzar.
Therefore, Ezekiel is in Babylon during his prophetic ministry, and many of his prophecies are directed against those still left in Jerusalem and Judah. His last dated discourse is delivered in 570 B.C., some years after the fall of Jerusalem.
Name the Judean king held captive at the time of Ezekiel's ministry.
