Hello Agness. Apart from a hardcover Commentary on Ezekiel (or on the Old Testament), available from Christian bookstores, you can look at Sites such as Bible Hub, which give a selection of Commentators on a verse-by-verse commentary - might be heavy going but worth it if you're focussed on an in-depth study of Ezekiel.

But to give you an outline to work on: Ezekiel was from a priestly family (1:3) & his name means "God strengthens". He spent his early years in Jerusalem until the captivity to Babylon, alongwith the other hostages. Over there he settled in his own house by the river Chebar (3:15,24), & prophesied for at least 22 years. His wife died about 10 years after being exiled, from a stroke or a plague (24:16-18).

He ministered to the exiles in Babylon at the same time that the prophet Jeremiah was ministering to the Jews in Palestine. His ministerial thrust was to keep before the exiles, not only the sins they had committed that brought on God's Judgement, but to also assure them of God's future blessing by His keeping of His Covenant with them.

The general breakdown of the chapters can be seen as thus: Chapters 1 to 3 (Ezekiel's Call & Commissioning); Chapters 4 to 24 (Prophecies against Judah & Jerusalem); Chapters 25 to 32 (Prophecies against foreign nations); Chapters 33 to 39 (Prophecies of Israel's restoration); and Chapters 40 to 48 (Prophecies concerning Israel in the coming Millenial Kingdom).

I realize I've given a very brief outline to you, but hopefully it will help you focus on Ezekiel, the man & his ministry & God's Word to them (& for us to learn from). You will need a comprehensive commentary if you want to do an in-depth study. Every blessing in your studies.

I would really enjoy a commentary. .I enjoy reading God word. But I am lost reading Ezekiel.
