Spoke 4 - Dalet - The Call of Ezekiel

But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them: And I will make thy tongue cleave (davaq) to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a rebellious house. But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD ...

Ezekiel 3:26f (Spoke 4, Cycle 2)

Dalet KeyWord

God had a very heavy hand on Ezekiel. He literally closed and opened his mouth. His call has a strong correlation with the corresponding Alphabetic Verses. The highlighted words all appear in the Dalet verse of Lamentations 4:4:

  • AV Lamenations 4:4 The tongue of the sucking child cleaveth (davaq) to the roof of his mouth for thirst: the young children ask bread, and no man breaketh it unto them.

When I wrote the Bible Wheel book, I thought that this was not an exact KeyLink because similar language occurs in a few other passages, as seen by a search for (cleave*, mouth) [Verify] in the KJV, for example. This did not really matter since we obviously have a strong thematic link between this Dalet verse and Ezekiel's call recorded on Spoke 4. The reference to the "rebellious house" also links strongly with the events in Numbers and the list of sins in Galatians 5:19ff discussed above (BW Book pg 175).

But now that the book is finished, I have found time to look more closely at some of these links, and as always, I find myself amazed at what God has done in His Holy Word. The exact words used in Lamentations 4:4 and Ezekiel's Call are found in no other passages of the Bible. Here is a comparison of the Hebrew text:

Lamentations 4:4 Ezekiel 3:26

Folks who have original language software like the most excellent BibleWorks 7 This link takes you off the Bible Wheel site and opens a new window can verify this KeyLink by searching for the string BibleWorks 7 search string. Note that it is an Alphabetic KeyLink because it forms a unique link from the Dalet Alphabetic Verse of Lamentations 4:4 to Ezekiel on Spoke 4:
