Title: EZEKIEL, THE DUMB PROPHET
Prophet Ezekiel is ordained, from the very beginning of his mission, to remain mute; nevertheless, he has to transmit the words God trusted him in order to bring people on the correct path of living their lives. The possible lack of coherence of this text might be emended either by interpreting the significance of muteness or by a different translation
Keywords: Ezekiel, Septuagint, prophet, muteness, translation
