22:2 “As for you, son of man, are you willing to pronounce judgment, 1 are you willing to pronounce judgment on the bloody city? 2 Then confront her with all her abominable deeds!
24:6 “‘Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says:
Woe to the city of bloodshed,
the pot whose rot 3 is in it,
whose rot has not been removed 4 from it!
Empty it piece by piece.
No lot has fallen on it. 5
1 tn Heb “will you judge.” Here the imperfect form of the verb is probably used with a desiderative nuance. Addressed to the prophet, “judge” means to warn of or pronounce God’s impending judgment upon the city. See 20:4.
3 tn Or “rust.”
4 tn Heb “has not gone out.”
5 tn Here “lot” may refer to the decision made by casting lots; it is not chosen at all.
