A couple of years after Ezekiel’s vision of the restoration of Israel and the temple, he received another warning regarding Egypt. Since Nebuchadnezzar had helped God punish Judah for her sins, He had promised wages to Babylon in the form of victory over Tyre. That victory was only partial as Tyre had only been crippled and not totally destroyed. Egypt’s previous warnings had been ignored and God was ready to allow Nebuchadnezzar to punish another sinful nation for Him. Egypt would be conquered by Babylon.
