Ezekiel 20:8

Context
20:8 But they rebelled against me, and refused to listen to me; no one got rid of their detestable idols, 1  nor did they abandon the idols of Egypt. Then I decided to pour out 2  my rage on them and fully vent my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

Context
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.

2 tn Heb “and I said/thought to pour out.”

3 tn The words “I did this” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied for stylistic reasons. Verses 15-16 are one long sentence in the Hebrew text. The translation divides this sentence into two for stylistic reasons.
