Ezekiel 27:8

Context

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

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

Ezekiel 27:27-29

Context

27:27 Your wealth, products, and merchandise, your sailors and captains,

your ship’s carpenters, 5  your merchants,

and all your fighting men within you,

along with all your crew who are in you,

will fall into the heart of the seas on the day of your downfall.

27:28 At the sound of your captains’ cry the waves will surge; 6 

27:29 They will descend from their ships – all who handle the oar,

the sailors and all the sea captains – they will stand on the land.

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 “your repairers of damage.” See v. 9.

6 tn Compare this phrase to Isa 57:20 and Amos 8:8. See M. Greenberg, Ezekiel (AB), 2:561.
