[ 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 9, the LORD calls 6 "men" (angels in the form of men, it seems) who have charge over the city. They come, each with a slaughter weapon in his hand. A seventh angel comes among them having a writer's inkhorn by his side. They stand beside the brazen altar (1-2).
God, in his glory, goes to the threshold of the Temple; and he tells the man who has the writer's inkhorn to put a mark upon the forehead of all of those who mourn for the abominations which are done in Jerusalem (3-4).
He tells the others to follow the man with the inkhorn and go through the city and slaughter without pity everyone who does not have the mark. They begin the slaughter (5-7).
As the slaughter proceeds, Ezekiel falls on his face and begs God to spare some (8).
But God says that their iniquity is exceedingly great, and he will not have pity (9-10).
And the man with the inkhorn tells the LORD that he has done as he commanded (11).

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.
