1 Now it happened in the thirtieth year, in the fourth [month], in the fifth [day] of the month, as I was among the captives by the river Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

2 In the fifth [day] of the month, which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,

3 the word of Yahweh came expressly to Ezekiel the priest, the son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of Yahweh was there on him.

4 I looked, and behold, a stormy wind came out of the north, a great cloud, with flashing lightning, and a brightness around it, and out of its midst as it were glowing metal, out of the midst of the fire.

5 Out of its midst came the likeness of four living creatures. This was their appearance: they had the likeness of a man.

6 Everyone had four faces, and each one of them had four wings.

7 Their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled like burnished brass.

8 They had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides; and the four of them had their faces and their wings [thus]:

9 their wings were joined one to another; they didn't turn when they went; each one went straight forward.

10 As for the likeness of their faces, they had the face of a man; and the four of them had the face of a lion on the right side; and the four of them had the face of an ox on the left side; the four of them also had the face of an eagle.

11 Such were their faces. Their wings were spread out above. Two wings of each one touched another, and two covered their bodies.

12 Each one went straight forward: where the spirit was to go, they went; they didn't turn when they went.

13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance was like burning coals of fire, like the appearance of torches: [the fire] went up and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.

14 The living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

15 Now as I saw the living creatures, behold, one wheel on the earth beside the living creatures, for each of the four faces of it.

16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like a beryl: and the four of them had one likeness; and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel within a wheel.

17 When they went, they went in their four directions: they didn't turn when they went.

18 As for their rims, they were high and dreadful; and the four of them had their rims full of eyes all around.

19 When the living creatures went, the wheels went beside them; and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up.

20 Wherever the spirit was to go, they went; there was the spirit to go: and the wheels were lifted up beside them; for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up beside them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

22 Over the head of the living creature there was the likeness of an expanse, like the awesome crystal to look on, stretched forth over their heads above.

23 Under the expanse were their wings straight, the one toward the other: each one had two which covered on this side, and every one had two which covered on that side, their bodies.

24 When they went, I heard the noise of their wings like the noise of great waters, like the voice of the Almighty, a noise of tumult like the noise of an army: when they stood, they let down their wings.

25 There was a voice above the expanse that was over their heads: when they stood, they let down their wings.

26 Above the expanse that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone; and on the likeness of the throne was a likeness as the appearance of a man on it above.

27 I saw as it were glowing metal, as the appearance of fire within it all around, from the appearance of his waist and upward; and from the appearance of his waist and downward I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and there was brightness around him.

28 As the appearance of the rainbow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the appearance of the brightness all around. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of Yahweh. When I saw it, I fell on my face, and I heard a voice of one that spoke.

1 And Jesus answered and spake unto them again by parables, and said,

2 The kingdom of heaven is like unto a certain king, which made a marriage for his son,

3 And sent forth his servants to call them that were bidden to the wedding: and they would not come.

4 Again, he sent forth other servants, saying, Tell them which are bidden, Behold, I have prepared my dinner: my oxen and my fatlings are killed, and all things are ready: come unto the marriage.

5 But they made light of it, and went their ways, one to his farm, another to his merchandise:

6 And the remnant took his servants, and entreated them spitefully, and slew them.

7 But when the king heard thereof, he was wroth: and he sent forth his armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city.

8 Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy.

9 Go ye therefore into the highways, and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage.

10 So those servants went out into the highways, and gathered together all as many as they found, both bad and good: and the wedding was furnished with guests.

11 And when the king came in to see the guests, he saw there a man which had not on a wedding garment:

12 And he saith unto him, Friend, how camest thou in hither not having a wedding garment? And he was speechless.

13 Then said the king to the servants, Bind him hand and foot, and take him away, and cast him into outer darkness; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.

14 For many are called, but few are chosen.

15 Then went the Pharisees, and took counsel how they might entangle him in his talk.

16 And they sent out unto him their disciples with the Herodians, saying, Master, we know that thou art true, and teachest the way of God in truth, neither carest thou for any man: for thou regardest not the person of men.

17 Tell us therefore, What thinkest thou? Is it lawful to give tribute unto Caesar, or not?

18 But Jesus perceived their wickedness, and said, Why tempt ye me, ye hypocrites?

19 Shew me the tribute money. And they brought unto him a penny.

20 And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?

21 They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.

22 When they had heard these words, they marvelled, and left him, and went their way.

23 The same day came to him the Sadducees, which say that there is no resurrection, and asked him,

24 Saying, Master, Moses said, If a man die, having no children, his brother shall marry his wife, and raise up seed unto his brother.

25 Now there were with us seven brethren: and the first, when he had married a wife, deceased, and, having no issue, left his wife unto his brother:

26 Likewise the second also, and the third, unto the seventh.

27 And last of all the woman died also.

28 Therefore in the resurrection whose wife shall she be of the seven? for they all had her.

29 Jesus answered and said unto them, Ye do err, not knowing the scriptures, nor the power of God.

30 For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.

31 But as touching the resurrection of the dead, have ye not read that which was spoken unto you by God, saying,

32 I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

33 And when the multitude heard this, they were astonished at his doctrine.

34 But when the Pharisees had heard that he had put the Sadducees to silence, they were gathered together.

35 Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked him a question, tempting him, and saying,

36 Master, which is the great commandment in the law?

37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

38 This is the first and great commandment.

39 And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

41 While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

42 Saying, What think ye of Christ? whose son is he? They say unto him, The Son of David.

43 He saith unto them, How then doth David in spirit call him Lord, saying,

44 The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

45 If David then call him Lord, how is he his son?

46 And no man was able to answer him a word, neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

Explanation of Matthew 22      

Napsal(a) Rev. John Clowes M.A.

Verses 1, 2. That heaven and the church are an image and likeness of the Lord through the reception of His Divine Love and Wisdom in conjunction.

Verse 3. To which reception all are called by the Word, but they who are in mere natural loves reject the call.

Verses 4, 5. And though the call be repeated, and the Lord offers to conjoin Himself to them, and them to Himself, by love, and to endow them with all external and internal goods thence derived, yet they who are in mere natural loves, prefer their own natural good to spiritual good, and their own natural truth to spiritual truth.

Verse 6. And thus destroy in themselves all spiritual good and truth.

Verse 7. Whereby they plunge themselves into all kinds of evils and falsities, to the utter extinction of all spiritual life and doctrine.

Verses 8, 9, 10. Nevertheless, the Word, though rejected by some, is communicated to others who are in the falsities of ignorance, and they are thus called to conjunction of life with the Lord.

Verse 11. But of these, some admit only the science of truth in the understanding, without conjoining it with charity in the will, and thus have indeed a semblance of spiritual life, when yet it is merely natural.

Verses 12, 13. Therefore in the day of inquisition, they are found to be void of all truth, and are deprived of all knowledges derived from the Word, and consociated with those who are in falsities derived from evil.

Verse 14. For man is not saved by knowledge alone, but by a life according to knowledge, which is charity.

Verses 15, 16, 17. That they who are in hypocritical worship treat the Word with much outward respect, and consult it for the regulation of the external man as to things of moral and civil life.

Verse 18. But this they do without any regard to the regulation of the internal man.

Verses 19, 20, 21. Whereas the Word teaches by significatives, that the external man bears the image of this world for which it was created, and therefore ought to be regulated by, and submit to, the laws of moral and civil life; but that the internal man bears the image of heaven for which it was created and therefore ought to be regulated by, and submit to, the laws of heavenly or spiritual life.

Verse 22. But this is incomprehensible to those who are in hypocritical worship, therefore they reject the internal of the Word.

Verse 23. That they also who deny the Scripture doctrine of regeneration consult the Word.

Verses 24, 25, 26, 27, 28. But abiding merely in the external or literal sense, they are perplexed about the doctrine of marriage, or the conjunction of good and truth in the regenerate mind.

Verse 29. Therefore they are instructed that they are in perplexity, in consequence of not admitting the Divine Truth, and the Divine Good of the Word by regeneration.

Verse 30. Which must be admitted during man's abode in this world, otherwise they cannot be admitted after death; and which if admitted, form angelic life.

Verses 31, 32. Therefore the Word teaches that all celestial, spiritual, and natural good, and truth are from the Lord, and that none can attain such good and truth but in the degree in which they renounce self-love, and cherish heavenly love.

Verse 33. Which doctrine is delightful to those who are in the affection of good and truth.

Verses 34, 35. But not so to those who are in hypocritical good, for they who are in this good, even in their pretended enquiry after truth, oppose both good and truth; and though they make a semblance of consulting the Divine Will, yet they do it in subtlety.

Verses 37, 38, 39, 40. Therefore they are instructed that the will of the Lord is that man should love Him with all his will and all his understanding, likewise with all his love and all his faith, and should in like manner love also the good and truth which are from the Lord, in others as in himself.

Verse 41, to the end of the chapter. And that for this purpose he should consider the quality of the. Lord's Divine Humanity, so as to discern, that although before glorification it was the Son of Mary, and of David, yet after glorification it ceased to be so, being then derived from the Father and one with the Father, and thus having Omnipotence and Omniscience.
