Ezekiel 9:5-6

Context

9:5 While I listened, he said to the others, 1  “Go through the city after him and strike people down; do no let your eye pity nor spare 2  anyone! 9:6 Old men, young men, young women, little children, and women – wipe them out! But do not touch anyone who has the mark. Begin at my sanctuary!” So they began with the elders who were at the front of the temple.

1 tn Heb “to these he said in my ears.”

2 tn The meaning of the Hebrew term is primarily emotional: “to pity,” which in context implies an action, as in being moved by pity in order to spare them from the horror of their punishment.
