Ezekiel 29:17-20

Context

29:17 In the twenty-seventh year, in the first month, on the first day of the month, 1  the word of the Lord came to me: 29:18 “Son of man, King Nebuchadrezzar 2  of Babylon made his army labor hard against Tyre. 3  Every head was rubbed bald and every shoulder rubbed bare; yet he and his army received no wages from Tyre for the work he carried out against it. 29:19 Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: Look, I am about to give the land of Egypt to King Nebuchadrezzar of Babylon. He will carry off her wealth, capture her loot, and seize her plunder; it will be his army’s wages. 29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt as his compensation for attacking Tyre 4 , because they did it for me, declares the sovereign Lord.

1 sn April 26, 571 b.c.

2 tn Heb “Nebuchadrezzar” is a variant and more correct spelling of Nebuchadnezzar, as the Babylonian name Nabu-kudurri-usur has an “r” rather than an “n” (so also in v. 19).

3 sn Nebuchadnezzar besieged Tyre from 585 to 571 b.c.
