It came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to inquire of Yahweh, and sat down in front of me. Bible

“seventh year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month.” That is, the seventh year reckoned from when Jehoiachin was taken into exile in the Babylonian Captivity (2 Kings 24:8-17; 2 Chron. 36:9-10). Thus, this revelation came to Ezekiel on August 14, 591 BC. [For more on the chronology of Ezekiel, see commentary on Ezek. 1:2].
