9/11: Ezekiel

Ezekiel 26

Ezekiel 26 is a prophecy against Tyre, a Phoenician seaport that was a type of Babylon. It fell in 573 BC. Critical verses from the prophecy are marked with the key number eleven.

 

Ezekiel 26.4

They will destroy the walls of Tyre and pull down her towers; I will scrape away her rubble and make her a bare rock.

This verse specifically mentions the pulling down of towers and is marked with eleven through the chapter and verse signifiers: 264 = 11 x 24.

 

Ezekiel 26.11

The hoofs of his horses will trample all your streets; he will kill your people with the sword, and your strong pillars will fall to the ground.

This verse is the eleventh in the chapter and speaks of the falling down of pillars.

 

Ezekiel 26.18

Now the coastlands tremble on the day of your fall; the islands in the sea are terrified at your collapse.

Again the themes of falling and collapse are found and the day of tyre's fall is specifically mentioned. 2618 = 11 x 238, or 22 x 119.
