Ezekiel 26:17

Context
26:17 They will sing this lament over you: 1 

“‘How you have perished – you have vanished 2  from the seas,

O renowned city, once mighty in the sea,

she and her inhabitants, who spread their terror! 3 

Ezekiel 32:23

Context
32:23 Their 4  graves are located in the remote slopes of the pit. 5  Her assembly is around her grave, all of them struck down by the sword, those who spread terror in the land of the living.

1 tn Heb “and they will lift up over you a lament and they will say to you.”

2 tn Heb “O inhabitant.” The translation follows the LXX and understands a different Hebrew verb, meaning “cease,” behind the consonantal text. See L. C. Allen, Ezekiel [WBC], 2:72, and D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 2:43.

3 tn Heb “she and her inhabitants who placed their terror to all her inhabitants.” The relationship of the final prepositional phrase to what precedes is unclear. The preposition probably has a specifying function here, drawing attention to Tyre’s inhabitants as the source of the terror mentioned prior to this. In this case, one might paraphrase verse 17b: “she and her inhabitants, who spread their terror; yes, her inhabitants (were the source of this terror).”

4 tn Heb “whose.”

5 tn The only other occurrence of the phrase “remote slopes of the pit” is in Isa 14:15.
