“burden.” The Hebrew word is “burden” but in this context the burden is not the supplies Ezekiel was carrying, but the message he was communicating by way of his acted-out prophecy. The word of the Lord is often a burden to the prophet because of the heavy message being communicated, and then, when it is spoken, can be a burden to the people. [For more information on “burden,” see commentary on Malachi 1:1].

Eze 12:13

“he will not see it even though he will die there.” This riddle in Ezekiel 12:13 is solved in the historical record in the book of Kings. After capturing Zedekiah, the king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar, the king of Babylon, blinded him before he exiled him to Babylon (2 Kings 25:7). Thus, Zedekiah did die in Babylon, but he never saw it.

Eze 12:22

“The days go by.” This is more literally, “The days are prolonged,” but the reference is to how the days pass without the prophecies being fulfilled. Given the context, the reference is the the lying prophecies that foretold of good times ahead.

“is for many days to come.” Zedekiah and the people of Israel were saying that the words of Ezekiel were for times in the far future, and denied their own sin and the prophecies of destruction from Ezekiel and many prophets before him.
