Ezekiel 34:29-31

Context
34:29 I will prepare for them a healthy 1  planting. They will no longer be victims 2  of famine in the land and will no longer bear the insults of the nations. 34:30 Then they will know that I, the Lord their God, am with them, 3  and that they are my people, the house of Israel, declares the sovereign Lord. 4  34:31 And you, my sheep, the sheep of my pasture, are my people, 5  and I am your God, declares the sovereign Lord.’”

1 tc The MT reads לְשֵׁם (lÿshem, “for a name”), meaning perhaps a renowned planting (place). The translation takes this to be a metathesis of שָׁלֹם (shalom) as was read by the LXX.

2 tn Heb “those gathered” for famine.

3 sn A promise given to Abraham (Gen 15:7) and his descendants (Gen 15:8; Exod 6:7).

4 sn The blessings described in vv. 25-30 are those promised for obedience in Lev 26:4-13.

5 tn Heb, “the sheep of my pasture, you are human.” See 36:37-38 for a similar expression. The possessive pronoun “my” is supplied in the translation to balance “I am your God” in the next clause.
