Although I am only supposed to write about verses 13-23 the whole chapter 38 shows us that God is in complete control.  I have heard preachers expound this and I did write a commentary possibly about 30 years ago but to say I have this one altogether I cannot.  However it is true because Ezekiel says, “The word of the LORD came to me.” This brings me to what John says in his first chapter, “In the beginning was the Word.  This Word was God and created all things and was made flesh and dwelt among us.”
God says, “I will put hooks in your jaws.” Much of this can be symbolism however.  Then in our verses today we have the nations to the west saying, “Is this what you are intending to do?”
Notice when God speaks of what He will do the word I is used.  He also uses the words My jealousy and My wrath.  What can be blind rage and purpose in the heart of man can be fulfilling what God is intending.  This speaks volumes to me as I spend time in the Word of God. The end is, “They shall know that I am the LORD.”
