[ Illustration: Today's image depicts John eating the book which was given to him, a parallel to the incident in today's chapter in which Ezekiel eats the book which the LORD gives him. ]
[ I will again be working through the Scriptures from Genesis to Revelation. I will be adding links, resources, images, and the like, upgrading the former work-through which began with the 2013-10-12 posting which can be found, along with the full Genesis to Revelation postings, in the Archive Page. Postings will be at midnight Eastern Time, as I am able. However, no chapters will be skipped, even though a posting may be late. And all postings will be housed in the Archive Page. ]
Explanation: In Ezekiel 3, Ezekiel eats the book (scroll) which the LORD gave him in chapter 2. It's taste is sweet. This concept occurs in several passages of Scripture. The closest parallel is in Revelation 10:8-11, where John (depicted in the tapestry above) eats the scroll which the Lord gives him by the hand of an angel. In both cases, the taste is sweet. In John's case, the effect is to make the stomach bitter. Ezekiel reports a similar effect ('bitterness, and heat of spirit') - perhaps directly from eating the scroll, perhaps indirectly.
Various other parallels occur in Scripture. In Jeremiah 15:16, Jeremiah says, "Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of hosts." Likewise the Psalmist says, "How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth!" (Psalms 119:103).

PLEASE NOTE: Use the resources on this and other sites thoughtfully, particularly the commentaries and encyclopedias. I have attempted to list conservative, scholarly resources. However, some providers use liberal or liberal-influenced commentaries such as the Cambridge Bible for Schools and Colleges (in Bible Hub). Such commentaries are undoubtedly included by the provider for the wealth of useful information and comments which they provide. By consulting several commentaries, it should be fairly easy to sort out the wheat from the chaff. If, however, you would like personal assistance, write to me at AD LIB ARTS EMAIL.
