Context
18:8 does not engage in usury or charge interest, 1  but refrains 2  from wrongdoing, promotes true justice 3  between men,

Ezekiel 18:13

Context
18:13 engages in usury and charges interest. Will he live? He will not! Because he has done all these abominable deeds he will certainly die. 4  He will bear the responsibility for his own death. 5 

Ezekiel 18:17

Context
18:17 refrains from wrongdoing, 6  does not engage in usury or charge interest, carries out my regulations and follows my statutes. He will not die for his father’s iniquity; 7  he will surely live.

Ezekiel 22:12

Context
22:12 They take bribes within you to shed blood. You engage in usury and charge interest; 8  you extort money from your neighbors. You have forgotten me, 9  declares the sovereign Lord. 10 

1 sn This law was given in Lev 25:36.

2 tn Heb, “turns back his hand.”

3 tn Heb “justice of truth.”

4 tn Heb “be put to death.” The translation follows an alternative reading that appears in several ancient textual witnesses.

5 tn Heb “his blood will be upon him.”

6 tc This translation follows the LXX. The MT reads “restrains his hand from the poor,” which makes no sense here.

7 tn Or “in his father’s punishment.” The phrase “in/for [a person’s] iniquity/punishment” occurs fourteen times in Ezekiel: here and in vv. 18, 19, 20; 3:18, 19; 4:17; 7:13, 16; 24:23; 33:6, 8, 9; 39:23. The Hebrew word for “iniquity” may also mean the “punishment for iniquity.”

8 tn Heb “usury and interest you take.” See 18:13, 17. This kind of economic exploitation violated the law given in Lev 25:36.

9 sn Forgetting the Lord is also addressed in Deut 6:12; 8:11, 14; Jer 3:21; 13:25; Ezek 23:35; Hos 2:15; 8:14; 13:6.

10 tn The second person verb forms are feminine singular in Hebrew, indicating that the personified city is addressed here as representing its citizens.
