This commentary expounds the later chapters of Ezekiel according to the book’s classic prophetic outline. After judgment falls on Israel, oracles against the Gentile nations bring them under God’s judgment too. But God’s purpose is to lead all peoples to repentance and salvation through faith. God promises forgiveness, restoration, and resurrection through a new David, the Shepherd who will unite all believers. The book ends with an extended vision of the new temple and rejuvenated land in the new earth, where God’s redeemed people shall dwell under their Prince forever.

Hummel works in accordance with the focus of the commentary series, which is on theological exposition rather than textual criticism. He utilizes a straightforward grammatico-historical method. . . . Hummel’s commentary successfully carries out the mission of the Concordia Commentary, and students of Ezekiel who are looking for a cogent but confessional theological commentary will want to add this one to their collections.
