[ Illustration: Today's painting shows, in symbol, what Israel in general, and Jerusalem in particular, had become -- a place of demons. ]
[ 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 5, because Jerusalem had done wickedly, the LORD told the inhabitants of the city, through Ezekiel, that he would judge them by the hand of the wicked. They all (except for a tiny fraction which the LORD would preserve) would die by famine, pestilence, and sword. In effect, the demonic forces which they worshipped (Deuteronomy 32:17; Psalms 106:37; 1 Corinthians 10:20) would be unleashed upon them. These are symbolized in the painting above called "Pandemonium" (literally, the "all demon place").
God tells Ezekiel to shave his head and beard and to divide the hair into three parts. He is then to burn one third, to hack a third into bits, and to burn the last third. He is to put a few hairs in his garment. He is then to take a few of the remaining strands and burn them. These actions symbolize the various fates of the Israelites. Few will remain, and even some of those will perish (1-4).
This punishment will come because Israel had become like the nations around them and had forsaken God's laws (5-7).
God will therefore send judgment upon them for their abominations (8-10).
Because they have defiled his sanctuary, God will consume them with pestilence, famine, sword, and evil beasts (11-17).

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.
