 Ezekiel
    God will strengthen. (1.) 1 Chr. 24:16, "Jehezekel."
      (2.) One of the great prophets, the son of Buzi the priest
    (Ezek. 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
    (1:2; 2 Kings 24:14-16) about B.C. 597. His prophetic call came
    to him "in the fifth year of Jehoiachin's captivity" (B.C. 594).
    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 (Ezek. 8:1; 24:18). He held a prominent place
    among the exiles, and was frequently consulted by the elders
    (8:1; 11:25; 14:1; 20:1). His ministry extended over
    twenty-three years (29:17), B.C. 595-573, during part of which
    he was contemporary with Daniel (14:14; 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 neighbourhood of
    Bagdad, at a place called Keffil.
