Ezekiel 16:1-63

Chronologically subsequent to the former prophecy and in the same timeframe (sometime between the 6th month of the 6th year and the 5th month of the 7th year of Zedekiah’s reign; time references: see 8:1 & 20:1), God said to Ezekiel, “Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations” (Ezek. 16:2). By way of the former prophetic analogy, the Vine Tree, the people understood their utter worthlessness and unworthiness, but they still didn’t know their abominableness.
