How can Ezekiel’s prophecies be included in Scripture if they are wrong about Nebuchadnezzar?

Best Answers

Nebuchadnezzar had defeated and plundered the cities on the shore, as Ezekiel prophesied in 26:7–11, but he could not defeat the island city. This fact is reported in Ezekiel 29:18. Further, verse 12 marks a shift from the prophecy concerning Nebuchadnezzar to prophetic declarations about other invaders. read more
