Ezekiel 20:37-38

Context
20:37 I will make you pass under 1  the shepherd’s staff, 2  and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant. 20:38 I will eliminate from among you the rebels and those who revolt 3  against me. I will bring them out from the land where they have been residing, but they will not come to the land of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord.

1 tn This is the same Hebrew verb used to describe the passing of the children through the fire.

2 sn The metaphor may be based in Lev 27:32 (see also Jer 33:13; Matt 25:32-33). A shepherd would count his sheep as they passed beneath his staff.

3 tn See the note at 2:3.
