Ezekiel 33:24-26

Context
33:24 “Son of man, the ones living in these ruins in the land of Israel are saying, ‘Abraham was only one man, yet he possessed the land, but we are many; surely the land has been given to us for a possession.’ 1  33:25 Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: You eat the meat with the blood still in it, 2  pray to 3  your idols, and shed blood. Do you really think you will possess 4  the land? 33:26 You rely 5  on your swords and commit abominable deeds; each of you defiles his neighbor’s wife. Will you possess the land?’

1 sn Outside of its seven occurrences in Ezekiel the term translated “possession” appears only in Exod 6:8 and Deut 33:4.

2 sn This practice was a violation of Levitical law (see Lev 19:26).

3 tn Heb “lift up your eyes.”

4 tn Heb “Will you possess?”

5 tn Heb “stand.”
