New Defender's Study Bible Notes
40:1 five and twentieth year. The last previous chronological notation had been at Ezekiel 33:21, marking the twelfth year of captivity. The vision of the millennial temple in Ezekiel 40–46 was given thirteen years later. The great futuristic prophecies of Ezekiel 37–39 were presumably given sometime in between, although no specific chronological data are given.
