A key verse of Ezekiel is found in 22:30: “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found none.” Princes, priests and prophets committed sins toward God and toward the most vulnerable of people. They practiced extortion, robbery, and oppression. God looked for someone who would pray on behalf of Jerusalem and the land, but he could find none. Ezekiel prophesies the destruction of Jerusalem. God still looks for those who will pray!
