Ezra 10:2

Context
10:2 Then Shecaniah son of Jehiel, from the descendants of Elam, 1  addressed Ezra:

“We have been unfaithful to our God by marrying 2  foreign women from the local peoples. 3  Nonetheless, there is still hope for Israel in this regard. 4 

Ezra 10:10-11

Context

10:10 Then Ezra the priest stood up and said to them, “You have behaved in an unfaithful manner by taking foreign wives! This has contributed to the guilt of Israel. 10:11 Now give praise to the Lord God of your fathers, and do his will. Separate yourselves from the local residents 5  and from these foreign wives.”

1 tc The translation reads with the Qere, many medieval Hebrew MSS, the LXX, the Syriac Peshitta, and Vulgate עֵילָם (’elam, “Elam”) rather than the reading עוֹלָם (’olam, “eternity”) found in the MT.

2 tn Heb “in that we have given a dwelling to.” So also in vv. 14, 17, 18.

3 tn Heb “the peoples of the lands.”

4 tn Heb “upon this.”

5 tn Heb “the peoples of the land.”
