Ezekiel 20:18-20


20:18 “‘But I said to their children 1  in the wilderness, “Do not follow the practices of your fathers; do not observe their regulations, 2  nor defile yourselves with their idols. 20:19 I am the Lord your God; follow my statutes, observe my regulations, and carry them out. 20:20 Treat my Sabbaths as holy 3  and they will be a reminder of our relationship, 4  and then you will know that I am the Lord your God.”

Ezekiel 20:24

20:24 I did this 5  because they did not observe my regulations, they rejected my statutes, they desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes were fixed on 6  their fathers’ idols.

Ezekiel 20:30


20:30 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: Will you defile yourselves like your fathers 7  and engage in prostitution with detestable idols?

1 tn Heb “sons,” reflecting the patriarchal idiom of the culture.

2 tn Or “standard of justice.” See Ezek 7:27.

3 tn Or “set apart my Sabbaths.”

4 tn Heb “and they will become a sign between me and you.”

5 tn The words “I did this” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied for stylistic reasons. Verses 23-24 are one long sentence in the Hebrew text. The translation divides this sentence into two for stylistic reasons.

6 tn Or “they worshiped” (NCV, TEV, CEV); Heb “their eyes were on” or “were after” (cf. v. 16).

7 tn Heb “in the way of your fathers.”
