John Gill's Exposition of the Bible
Ezekiel 2:9

And when I looked, behold, an hand [was] sent unto me
Not of an angel, but of Christ himself, in a visionary way; for this was not a real hand, but the likeness of one, as in ( Ezekiel 8:3 ) ; and so the Targum here,

``and I saw, and behold, the likeness of a hand stretched out on the side to me.''

held in it, and held forth by it, to the prophet. Books were frequently written on parchment or vellum, and rolled about a stick, in form of a cylinder; and hence they were called volumes or rolls, ( Psalms 40:7 ) . This roll was a symbol of the prophecy of this book.
