So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.
Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:14 the spirit lifted me up. This may have been a supernatural translation of the prophet, in similar fashion to the experience of Philip (Acts 8:39-40). Also compare Ezekiel 8:3. Perhaps, as a vision (see Ezekiel 1:1), his spirit was translated, somewhat as in Paul’s experience (II Corinthians 12:2-4) while his body remained in his home. In any case, the things he saw and heard were real, not dreams or symbols.
