23  I will plant it in Yisrael‘s lofty highlands, and it shall bring forth boughs and produce branches and grow into a noble cedar. Every bird of every feather shall take shelter under it, shelter in the shade of its boughs.

17:23 Every bird of every feather shall take shelter under it

Migratory birds in Israel’s Hula Valley.

Yechezkel reverses the negative prophecies and includes a vision of hope. Referring to Mashiach, he describes a small cedar shoot which will be restored to the high mountain of Yerushalayim. This tree will grow, bear fruit, and provide protection for all those who seek it. Yechezkel is teaching that in the time of redemption, not only will Israel seek out Hashem, but all the nations of the world will travel to Yerushalayim to seek Israel’s friendship and to acknowledge God’s sovereignty.

  • This reminds me of the hedgerow of evergreen trees near my home, how when evening approacheds, the birds of every kind return and make such a clattering as they bed down for the night. I love hearing them return like clockwork and recall the hustle and bustle, little ones tweeting for their evening meal, moms and pops singing them to sleep. I praise the Lord for such things in life, it is comforting to know He takes care of each of us large and small.
