Ezekiel 3:14 Parallel
Commentary
Barnes' Notes on the Bible

Lifted me up - We are not to suppose that the prophet was miraculously transported from one place to another in the land of his captivity. Compare Matthew 4:1; Acts 8:39. He had been in an ecstatic vision Ezekiel 1:1, and now guided by the Spirit he goes forth among his countrymen.

The heat of my spirit - Full of the righteous indignation, which God inspired, against the sin which he was to denounce.

But the hand - and "the hand." The Lord strengthened him for his mission.

The reason of this is not to be ascribed to the shortness of its duration:
