40:2 brought he me. Ezekiel once again is carried back to Israel, but this time also the distant future. The God who created both space and time is able to translate Himself or His creatures to any point of space and time.
40:2 very high mountain. John later was also translated in time and space to “a great and high mountain” (Revelation 21:10), where he viewed the New Jerusalem descending to the new earth. From his “very high mountain,” Ezekiel could see and describe the restored land of Israel and its great temple during the thousand-year kingdom age. The last nine chapters of Ezekiel are devoted to this description.
