Ezekiel 25:7

Context
25:7 take note, I have stretched out my hand against you, and I will hand you over as plunder 1  to the nations. I will cut you off from the peoples and make you perish from the lands. I will destroy you; then you will know that I am the Lord.’”

Ezekiel 25:16

Context
25:16 So this is what the sovereign Lord says: Take note, I am about to stretch out my hand against the Philistines. I will kill 2  the Cherethites 3  and destroy those who remain on the seacoast.

1 tc The translation here follows the marginal reading (Qere) of the Hebrew text. The consonantal text (Kethib) is meaningless.

2 tn In Hebrew the verb “and I will cut off” sounds like its object, “the Cherethites,” and draws attention to the statement.

3 sn This is a name for the Philistines, many of whom migrated to Palestine from Crete.
