The prophetic judgement on Biblical Sidon (Ezek 28,20-23)
Languages of publication
Speech against Sidon, like any other speeches against other foreign nations in the Book of Ezekiel is God’s answer to the joy of nations, that have so far escaped the same fate as dying Jerusalem and who are taking pleasure in the misfortune of Judah. These Oracles show us that God has power over all creation and in accordance with the order enclosed in the Book of Jeremiah among others, He is the one who decides about the fate of nations: I have made the earth, the man and the beast that are upon the ground, by my great power and by my outstretched arm, and have given it unto whom it seemed meet unto me. (Jer. 27: 5). As a result of actions, which God announces in his oracles may the nations know that He alone is the Lord, He has the fate of nations in His hands, He For the Lord is high, and terrible, a great king over all the earth. He hath subdued the people under us, and the nations under our feet (Psalm 47: 3-4).
