Ezekiel 20:7

Context
20:7 I said to them, “Each of you must get rid of the detestable idols you keep before you, 1  and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.”

Ezekiel 20:24

Context
20:24 I did this 2  because they did not observe my regulations, they rejected my statutes, they desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes were fixed on 3  their fathers’ idols.

1 tn Heb “each one, the detestable things of his eyes, throw away.” The Pentateuch does not refer to the Israelites worshiping idols in Egypt, but Josh 24:14 appears to suggest that they did so.

2 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.

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