Yechezkel Eight: Jealousy

Ezekiel is holding court with the elders of Judah when God speaks to him again. He sees a vision of fire. “And it stretched out a form of a hand, and it took me by a lock of my hair, and a wind picked me up between the earth and between the heaven, and it brought me to Jerusalem in the visions of God, to the entrance of the inner gate that faces north, whereat was the seat of the image of jealousy that provokes jealousy (Ezekiel 8:3).” Ezekiel is brought to this otherworldly place and sees God’s glory manifested. Then, he is instructed to look to the north and he sees an image of jealousy. What can jealousy even look like? We talk about the green eyed monster, but what did Ezekiel see?
