Ezekiel 9:2

Context
9:2 Next, I noticed 1  six men 2  coming from the direction of the upper gate 3  which faces north, each with his war club in his hand. Among them was a man dressed in linen with a writing kit 4  at his side. They came and stood beside the bronze altar.

Ezekiel 9:11

Context

9:11 Next I noticed the man dressed in linen with the writing kit at his side bringing back word: “I have done just as you commanded me.”

1 tn The word הִנֵּה (hinneh, traditionally “behold”) indicates becoming aware of something and has been translated here as a verb.

2 sn The six men plus the scribe would equal seven, which was believed by the Babylonians to be the number of planetary deities.

3 sn The upper gate was built by Jotham (2 Kgs 15:35).

4 tn Or “a scribe’s inkhorn.” The Hebrew term occurs in the OT only in Ezek 9 and is believed to be an Egyptian loanword.
