Ezekiel 11:15

Context
11:15 “Son of man, your brothers, 1  your relatives, 2  and the whole house of Israel, all of them are those to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem 3  have said, ‘They have gone 4  far away from the Lord; to us this land has been given as a possession.’

1 tc The MT reads “your brothers, your brothers” either for empahsis (D. I. Block, Ezekiel [NICOT], 1:341, n. 1; 346) or as a result of dittography.

2 tc The MT reads גְאֻלָּתֶךָ (gÿullatekha, “your redemption-men”), referring to the relatives responsible for deliverance in times of hardship (see Lev 25:25-55). The LXX and Syriac read “your fellow exiles,” assuming an underlying Hebrew text of גָלוּתֶךָ (galutekha) or having read the א (aleph) as an internal mater lectionis for holem.

3 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

4 tc The MT has an imperative form (“go far!”), but it may be read with different vowels as a perfect verb (“they have gone far”).
