zeke’s wife

i was reading in ezekiel 25 today how god told the prophet “your wife’s gonna die today and you can’t mourn her”.  it was to communicate to the people that god was going to take what they held dear (the temple) and destroy it, and they wouldn’t even mourn.

“groan silently”, god said to him.

i mean, god is god, and he can do whatever he wants in order to make a point.  but it does seem a bit drastic.
