Ezekiel's prophecies

Ezekiel the prophet preached to Jews of the Babylonian captivity from 593 BC to 563 BC, according to the Bible's book of Ezekiel. The book discusses the fall of Jerusalem in 586 BC and contains many oracles of warning. He sometimes symbolically acted out his prophecies. He spoke about the restoration of Israel and the destruction of empires that sought to destroy Israel. Those empires, by the way, have been destroyed, and Israel today is being restored.
