Reading commentaries can be a great way to grow in our knowledge of (and love for!) God and His Word. And, commentaries can offer substantial guidance in helping us interpret difficult passages well. (AFTER careful personal study and observation, of course!)

Daniel I. Block, the Book of Ezekiel: Chapters 1-24. NICOT. Eerdmans, 1997. p. 106:
