When Ezekiel talked about "book", he wrote "books".<quoted text>
WHEN they TALK ABOUT INSCRIBING the STICK of a SET of FAMILY SCRIPTURES in JUDAISM
IT is a BIG DEAL with an EXTENSIVE LAW around it. It's a YEAR AND A HALF'S WORK for ONE MAN who INSCRIBES a THIRD of a MILLION CHARACTERS without a SINGLE DAMAGED CHARACTER. If one is DAMAGED beyond scraping the ink off that PAGE of PARCHMENT MUST be UNSEWN and THROWN away.
It's EXTREMELY exacting and PRECIOUS work for them.
INSCRIBING "TO JUDAH"
INSCRIBING "TO JOSEPH"
IS the STANDARD METHOD for DEDICATING a SET of SCRIPTURES to someone.
He said "INSCRIBE the STICK". The E.T.S. is the WORD.
The NAME of THE STICK is an ETS
and they INSCRIBE THEM TYPICALLY like THIS:
Sticks are not books.
Ezekiel 2:9-10 (NASB)
9 Then I looked, and behold, a hand was extended to me; and lo, a scroll was in it. 10 When He spread it out before me, it was written on the front and back, and written on it were lamentations, mourning and woe.
