Ezekiel 11:5-12

Context

11:5 Then the Spirit of the Lord came 1  upon me and said to me, “Say: This is what the Lord says: ‘This is what you are thinking, 2  O house of Israel; I know what goes through your minds. 3  11:6 You have killed many people in this city; you have filled its streets with corpses.’ 11:7 Therefore, this is what the sovereign Lord says: ‘The corpses you have dumped 4  in the midst of the city 5  are the meat, and this city 6  is the cooking pot, but I will take you out of it. 7  11:8 You fear the sword, so the sword I will bring against you,’ declares the sovereign Lord. 11:9 ‘But I will take you out of the city. 8  And I will hand you over to foreigners. I will execute judgments on you. 11:10 You will die by the sword; I will judge you at the border of Israel. Then you will know that I am the Lord. 11:11 This city will not be a cooking pot for you, and you will not 9  be meat within it; I will judge you at the border of Israel. 11:12 Then you will know that I am the Lord, whose statutes you have not followed and whose regulations you have not carried out. Instead you have behaved according to the regulations of the nations around you!’”

1 tn Heb “fell.”

2 tn The Hebrew verb commonly means “to say,” but may also mean “to think” (see also v. 3).

3 tn Heb “I know the steps of your spirits.”

4 tn Heb “placed.”

5 tn Heb “in its midst.”

6 tn Heb “she/it.” See v. 3.

7 tc Many of the versions read “I will bring you out” (active) rather than “he brought out” (the reading of MT).

8 tn Heb “its midst.”

9 tn The Hebrew text does not have the negative particle, but it is implied. The negative particle in the previous line does double duty here.
