Ezekiel 20:7-8

Context
20:7 I said to them, “Each of you must get rid of the detestable idols you keep before you, 1  and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the Lord your God.” 20:8 But they rebelled against me, and refused to listen to me; no one got rid of their detestable idols, 2  nor did they abandon the idols of Egypt. Then I decided to pour out 3  my rage on them and fully vent my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 20:30

Context

20:30 “Therefore say to the house of Israel, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: Will you defile yourselves like your fathers 4  and engage in prostitution with detestable idols?

1 tn Heb “each one, the detestable things of his eyes, throw away.” The Pentateuch does not refer to the Israelites worshiping idols in Egypt, but Josh 24:14 appears to suggest that they did so.

2 tn Heb “each one, the detestable things of their eyes did not throw away.”

3 tn Heb “and I said/thought to pour out.”

4 tn Heb “in the way of your fathers.”
