Ezekiel 27:8


27:8 The leaders 1  of Sidon 2  and Arvad 3  were your rowers;

your skilled 4  men, O Tyre, were your captains.

Ezekiel 27:11


27:11 The Arvadites 5  joined your army on your walls all around,

and the Gammadites 6  were in your towers.

They hung their quivers 7  on your walls all around;

they perfected your beauty.

1 tc The MT reads “the residents of”; the LXX reads “your rulers who dwell in.” With no apparent reason for the LXX to add “the rulers” many suppose something has dropped out of the Hebrew text. While more than one may be possible, Allen’s proposal, positing a word meaning “elders,” is the most likely to explain the omission in the MT from a graphic standpoint and also provides a parallel to the beginning of v. 9. See L. C. Allen, Ezekiel (WBC), 2:81.a parallel to v. 9.

2 map For location see Map1 A1; JP3 F3; JP4 F3.

3 sn Sidon and Arvad, like Tyre, were Phoenician coastal cities.

4 tn Or “wise.”

5 tn Heb “sons of Arvad.”

6 sn The identity of the Gammadites is uncertain.

7 tn See note on “quivers” in Jer 51:11 on the meaning of Hebrew שֶׁלֶט (shelet) and also M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:553.
