Ezekiel 5:12

Context
5:12 A third of your people will die of plague or be overcome by the famine within you. 1  A third of your people will fall by the sword surrounding you, 2  and a third I will scatter to the winds. I will unleash a sword behind them.

Ezekiel 5:17

Context
5:17 I will send famine and wild beasts against you and they will take your children from you. 3  Plague and bloodshed will overwhelm you, 4  and I will bring a sword against you. I, the Lord, have spoken!”

1 sn The judgment of plague and famine comes from the covenant curse (Lev 26:25-26). As in v. 10, the city of Jerusalem is figuratively addressed here.

2 sn Judgment by plague, famine, and sword occurs in Jer 21:9; 27:13; Ezek 6:11, 12; 7:15.

3 tn Heb “will bereave you.”

4 tn Heb “will pass through you.” This threat recalls the warning of Lev 26:22, 25 and Deut 32:24-25.
