Four Corners of the Earth in Context

“And you, O son of man, thus says the Lord God to the land of Israel: An end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land.

(Ezekiel 7:2) ESV

Every time the phrase the four corners of the earth occurs in the Bible it’s in the context of the Millennial Kingdom, which is after the plagues of the tribulation.

Ezekiel 7:2 is part of a prophecy of what’s going to come upon the Earth in the future. Here the phrasing is slightly different but that’s a result of the translation, not the original languages. In Hebrew the word translated as either Earth or land is erets. This word is context-dependent and can be used to refer to either planet Earth or the dry land which is the habitable portion of it.
