Ezekiel may have wondered if the judgment on Israel needed to be so severe. The LORD tells him that he will be comforted when he observes the complete moral bankruptcy of the few survivors. The LORD says in Ezekiel 14:22-23, “Yet behold, there shall be left in it a remnant who will be brought out, both sons and daughters; surely they will come out to you, and you will see their ways and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the disaster that I have brought upon Jerusalem, all that I have brought upon it. And they will comfort you, when you see their ways and their doings; and you shall know that I have done nothing without cause that I have done in it." God’s judgment's are not “without cause;” it is His last resort for people who refuse to repent.
