Decades of Babylonian history in a few brief paragraphs: Jeremiah 52:28–30; Ezekiel 29:17–21; Jeremiah 52:31–34; 2 Kings 25:27–30

Jeremiah left us a record of his struggle with prophesying to a people who did  not want to hear him. Ezekiel was either more confident, or just didn’t tell us as much. Even so, he does let it through from time to time:

Ezekiel 29:21 And the day will come when I will cause the ancient glory of Israel to revive, and then, Ezekiel, your words will be respected. Then they will know that I am the Lord.

Israel has been restored, although not yet to the full boundaries of Ezekiel 47, and Ezekiel’s words are now respected.
