Ezekiel 21:29

Context

21:29 while seeing false visions for you

and reading lying omens for you 2 

to place that sword 3  on the necks of the profane wicked, 4 

whose day has come,

the time of final punishment.

1 tn This probably refers to King Zedekiah.

2 tn Heb “in the seeing concerning you falsehood, in divining concerning you a lie.” This probably refers to the attempts of the Ammonites to ward off judgment through prophetic visions and divination.

3 tn Heb “you”; the referent (the sword mentioned in v. 28) has been specified in the translation for clarity.

4 sn The second half of the verse appears to state that the sword of judgment would fall upon the wicked, despite their efforts to prevent it.
