Ezekiel Chapter 21 Star Chart: Clockwise from the destruction of Jerusalem in 586 B.C. to the destruction of Rabbath of the Ammonites in 581 B.C. is 60° months. But the process took one-and-a-half years in the case of Jerusalem (Jer.52:4-7) and probably about the same time span in the case of Rabbath. Therefore, "the king of Babylon (Orion) stood at the parting of the (red radius road) way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his (red radius) arrows bright, he consulted with (solar and lunar and Gemini) images, he looked in the (lunar black Taurus) liver" (21:21) on the 10th day of the 10th month of 588 B.C. (Jer. 52:4) and determined that Jerusalem should be punished. One-and-a-half years later, on the 9th day of the 4th month of 586 B.C. (Jer. 52:5-7), Jerusalem was conquered till "the sword, the sword is drawn (two horns of Taurus or two red radius lines): for the slaughter it is furbished" (21:28). Five years after the fall of Jerusalem, Ammon was destroyed for aiding Ishmael in usurping the government of Judea against the will of the king of Babylon (See Joseph. Ant. 10:11; and Jeremiah 27, 48, 49; Ezekiel 25.2; Ki 25:25; Jer 41:15).
to the Destruction of Rabbath
21:1 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,
3 And say to the land of Israel, Thus saith the Lord; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my (red radius) sword out of his (red radius) sheath, and will cut off from thee the (Gemini) righteous and the wicked (586 B.C.).
4 Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the (Gemini) righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my (red radius) sword go forth out of his (red radius) sheath against all flesh (Taurus included) from the south to the north:
5 That all flesh may know that I the Lord (Orion) have drawn forth my (red radius) sword out of his (red radius) sheath: it shall not return any more (to its sheathe).
6 Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.
7 And it shall be, when they say unto thee, Wherefore sighest thou? that thou shalt answer, For the tidings; because it cometh: and every (Taurus) heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as water: behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass, saith the Lord God.
8 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,
9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the Lord; Say, A sword, a sword (two horns of Taurus or two red radius lines) is sharpened, and also furbished:
10 It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make mirth? it contemneth the rod of my son, as every tree.
11 And he hath given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the (Orion or Taurus) slayer.
12 Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be upon my (Gemini) people, it shall be upon all the (Gemini) princes of Israel: terrors by reason of the (red radius) sword shall be upon my (Gemini) people: smite therefore upon thy thigh.
13 Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod? it shall be no more, saith the Lord God.
14 Thou therefore, son of man, prophesy, and smite thine hands together. and let the sword be doubled (two horns of Taurus or two red radius lines) the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great (Gemini) men that are slain, which entereth into their privy (red radius line) chambers.(Where they were hidden in hopes of escaping)
15 I have set the point of the sword against all their (solar) gates, that their (lunar) heart may faint, and their ruins be multiplied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrapped up for the slaughter.
16 Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left, whithersoever thy face is set.
17 I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my (solar) fury to rest: I the Lord have said it.
18 The word of the Lord came unto me again, saying,
19 Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two (red radius line) ways, that the (Orion) sword of the king of Babylon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose thou a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.
21 For the king of Babylon (Orion) stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made his (red radius) arrows bright, he consulted with (solar and lunar and Gemini) images, he looked in the (lunar black Taurus) liver.
22 At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appoint (Gemini) captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint (red radius) battering rams against the (solar) gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.
23 And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths (Orion): but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
24 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance, ye shall be taken with the hand.
25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity shall have an end,
26 Thus saith the Lord God; Remove the diadem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: exalt him that is low (Orion), and abase him that is high (Auriga).
27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more, until he come whose right it is (our Lord); and I will give it him.
28 And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord God concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn (two horns of Taurus or two red radius lines): for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume because of the glittering:
As a matter of history, the Ammonites were conquered, and their country desolated, by Nebuchadnezzar a few years after the destruction of Jerusalem, (see Ez. 25:1-7)
this, as Josephus says, was accomplished five years after the destruction of Jerusalem, in the twenty third year of Nebuchadnezzar: Antiqu. Jud. l. 10. c. 9. sect. 7.
29 Whiles they see vanity unto thee, whiles they divine a lie unto thee, to bring thee upon the necks of them that are slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity shall have an end.
30 Shall I cause it to return into his (lunar) sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy nativity.
31 And I will pour out mine (red radius) indignation upon thee, I will blow against thee in the (solar) fire of my wrath, and deliver thee into the hand of brutish (Gemini) men, and skilful to destroy.
32 Thou shalt be for fuel to the (solar) fire; thy (red radius) blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more remembered: for I the Lord have spoken it.
