The Lioness and Her Cubs (19:1-9) - Ezekiel 19 addressed the influence wicked rulers had upon Israel, and in particular Judah. Three wicked kings were described, and can be identified. They are: Jehoahaz (19:3-4), Jehoiachin (19:5-9), and Zedekiah (19:14). A succession of wicked kings spelled the doom of the nation, and consequently, brought God’s judgment (19:12). Warning – The evil ways of a leader, and the consequences of his sins, will come to bear upon the lives of those he leads.
