Ezekiel 11:20

Context
11:20 so that they may follow my statutes and observe my regulations and carry them out. Then they will be my people, and I will be their God. 1 

Ezekiel 36:27

Context
36:27 I will put my Spirit within you; 2  I will take the initiative and you will obey my statutes 3  and carefully observe my regulations. 4 

1 sn The expression They will be my people, and I will be their God occurs as a promise to Abraham (Gen 17:8), Moses (Exod 6:7), and the nation (Exod 29:45).

2 tn Or “in the midst of you.” The word “you” is plural.

3 tn Heb “and I will do that which in my statutes you will walk.” The awkward syntax (verb “to do, act” + accusative sign + relative clause + prepositional phrase + second person verb) is unique, though Eccl 3:14 contains a similar construction. In the last line of that verse we read that “God acts so that (relative pronoun) they fear before him.” However, unlike Ezek 36:27, the statement has no accusative sign before the relative pronoun.

4 tn Heb “and my laws you will guard and you will do them.” Jer 31:31-34 is parallel to this passage.
