It is unclear whether Ezekiel actually traveled to particular places named in the visions, or whether he had only a mental idea of what he was describing. For this reason, Ezekiel's viewpoint is sometimes difficult to understand, even though the visions' meanings may be clear.

Translators should avoid explaining these visions in the translation. Instead, the visions should be presented just as they are in the source text.
