Ezekiel 26:2-4

Context
26:2 “Son of man, because Tyre 1  has said about Jerusalem, 2  ‘Aha, the gateway of the peoples is broken; it has swung open to me. I will become rich, 3  now that she 4  has been destroyed,’ 26:3 therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Look, 5  I am against you, 6  O Tyre! I will bring up many nations against you, as the sea brings up its waves. 26:4 They will destroy the walls of Tyre and break down her towers. I will scrape her soil 7  from her and make her a bare rock.

1 sn Tyre was located on the Mediterranean coast north of Israel.

2 map For location see Map5 B1; Map6 F3; Map7 E2; Map8 F2; Map10 B3; JP1 F4; JP2 F4; JP3 F4; JP4 F4.

3 tn Heb “I will be filled.”

4 sn That is, Jerusalem.

5 tn The word הִנֵּה (hinneh, traditionally “behold”) draws attention to something and has been translated here as a verb.

6 tn Or “I challenge you.” The phrase “I am against you” may be a formula for challenging someone to combat or a duel. See D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 1:201-2, and P. Humbert, “Die Herausforderungsformel ‘h!nn#n' ?l?K>,’” ZAW 45 (1933): 101-8. The Hebrew text switches to a second feminine singular form here, indicating that personified Jerusalem is addressed (see vv. 5-6a). The address to Jerusalem continues through v. 15. In vv. 16-17 the second masculine plural is used, as the people are addressed.

7 tn Or “debris.”
