Ezekiel 5:1

Context

5:1 “As for you, son of man, take a sharp sword and use it as a barber’s razor. 1  Shave off some of the hair from your head and your beard. 2  Then take scales and divide up the hair you cut off.

Ezekiel 5:13

Context
5:13 Then my anger will be fully vented; I will exhaust my rage on them, and I will be appeased. 3  Then they will know that I, the Lord, have spoken in my jealousy 4  when I have fully vented my rage against them.

Ezekiel 6:2

Context
6:2 “Son of man, turn toward 5  the mountains of Israel and prophesy against them:

1 tn The Hebrew word occurs only here in the OT.

2 tn Heb, “pass (it) over your head and your beard.”

3 tn Or “calm myself.”

4 tn The Hebrew noun translated “jealousy” is used in the human realm to describe suspicion of adultery (Num 5:14ff.; Prov 6:34). Since Israel’s relationship with God was often compared to a marriage this term is appropriate here. The term occurs elsewhere in Ezekiel in 8:3, 5; 16:38, 42; 23:25.

5 tn Heb “set your face against.” The expression occurs at the beginning of Ezekiel’s prophetic oracles in Ezek 13:17; 20:46; 21:2; 25:2; 28:21; 29:2; 35:2; 38:2.

sn Based on comparison to a similar expression in Ugaritic, the phrase may imply that Ezekiel was to actually go to these locations to deliver his message.
