Ezekiel 14:1-3 ” Some of the elders of Israel came to me and sat down in front of me. Then the Word of the Lord came to me: Son of man, these men have set up idols in their hearts and put wicked stumbling blocks before their faces. Should I let them inquire of Me at all? “

Throughout the book, Ezekiel did not mince words when denouncing the rampant idolatry around him…comparing it to infidelity and prostitution.  He also didn’t curb his words, accusing the Jews of being stubborn, self-righteous, and rebellious.  It got to the point of alienation that God Himself said, “No, I won’t listen to you anymore.”  The people were putting their trust in created things like gold and silver… but God warned all that, “Gold and silver will not be able to save them in the day of the Lord’s wrath.” (Ezekiel 7:19)
