Ezekiel 36:21-23

Context
36:21 I was concerned for my holy reputation 1  which the house of Israel profaned among the nations where they went.

36:22 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: It is not for your sake that I am about to act, O house of Israel, but for the sake of my holy reputation 2  which you profaned among the nations where you went. 36:23 I will magnify 3  my great name that has been profaned among the nations, that you have profaned among them. The nations will know that I am the Lord, declares the sovereign Lord, when I magnify myself among you in their sight.

1 tn Heb “name.”

2 sn In Ezek 20:22 God refrained from punishment for the sake of his holy name. Here God’s reputation is the basis for Israel’s restoration.

3 tn Or “sanctify,” Heb “make holy.”
