Ezekiel 35:5

Context

35:5 “‘You have shown unrelenting hostility and poured the people of Israel onto the blades of a sword 6  at the time of their calamity, at the time of their final punishment.

1 sn The Philistines inhabited the coastal plain by the Mediterranean Sea, west of Judah.

2 tn Heb “have acted with vengeance and taken vengeance with vengeance.” The repetition emphasizes the degree of vengeance which they exhibited, presumably toward Judah.

3 tn Heb “with scorn in (the) soul.”

4 tn The object is not specified in the Hebrew text, but has been clarified as “Judah” in the translation.

5 tn Heb “to destroy (with) perpetual hostility.” Joel 3:4-8 also speaks of the Philistines taking advantage of the fall of Judah.

6 tn Or “gave over…to the power of the sword.” This phrase also occurs in Jer 18:21 and Ps 63:10.
