Though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they should deliver but their own souls by their righteousness, saith the Lord GOD.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

14:14 Noah, Daniel and Job. Noah (Genesis 6:9), Daniel (Daniel 1:4,17), and Job (Job 1:8) were the most godly men of their respective generations. Noah lived before the Flood, Job after the Flood but prior to Israel, and Daniel was a contemporary Israelite. It is significant that Ezekiel already knew of Daniel’s reputation in Babylon. Note also Ezekiel 14:20.

14:14 Lord GOD. This divine name, “the Lord GOD” (Hebrew Adonai Yahweh, as distinct from the more common Yahweh Elohim) is very frequent in Ezekiel, occurring over two hundred times, whereas it is used only about one hundred times in all the rest of the Old Testament.
