Ezekiel 33:30-31

Context

33:30 “But as for you, son of man, your people 1  (who are talking about you by the walls and at the doors of the houses) say to one another, 2  ‘Come hear the word that comes 3  from the Lord.’ 33:31 They come to you in crowds, 4  and they sit in front of you as 5  my people. They hear your words, but do not obey 6  them. For they talk lustfully, 7  and their heart is set on 8  their own advantage. 9 

1 tn Heb “sons of your people.”

2 tn Heb “one to one, a man to his brother.”

3 tn Heb “comes out.”

4 tn Heb “as people come.” Apparently this is an idiom indicating that they come in crowds. See D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 2:264.

5 tn The word “as” is supplied in the translation.

6 tn Heb “do.”

7 tn Heb “They do lust with their mouths.”

8 tn Heb “goes after.”

9 tn The present translation understands the term often used for “unjust gain” in a wider sense, following M. Greenberg, who also notes that the LXX uses a term which can describe either sexual or ritual pollution. See M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:687.
