John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

Ezekiel 1:3

The word — What was visions, Ezekiel 1:1, is here the word, both as signifying and declaring the mind of God, what he would do, and as continuing his commands to Ezekiel and to the people. Ezekiel — He speaks of himself in a third person. Priest — He was of the priests originally; he was a prophet by an extraordinary call. The hand — He felt the power of God opening his eyes to see the visions, opening his ear to hear the voice, and his heart to receive both. When the hand of the Lord goes along with his word, then it becomes effectual.
