Ezekiel, whose name is translated "confirmed by God" and who, in Babylon, predicted to the sinful masses the coming imprisonment, though promising forgiveness of sins to those who would turn and do penance, points in a mysterious way to the Lord and Savior, who is the power and wisdom of God and was called by the prophet the arm of the Lord. He has visited us, we who were in the prison of this world, foretelling future punishments for sinners and promising eternal healing to those who were repentant. - "On Ecclesiasticus 10.23"

Knowing this first, that no prophecy of the scripture is of any private interpretation - 2 Peter 1:20
