Robert Jenson comments on Ezekiel 22:30-31

The involvement – and indeed emotional involvement – of the Lord in his people’s history could hardly be more drastically pictured than here [22:30-31]. We find the Lord on both sides of Jerusalem’s walls: assaulting the city for its evils and seeking someone to fend off his own attack. We have earlier found the Lord both pouring out his wrath on Israel and taking no “pleasure in the death of the wicked” (18:23). But we have not before found him doing both at once; we have not before heard of the Lord’s internal conflict, of his hope for a savior from his own wrath.

from Ezekiel (Brazos, 2009), 188.
