Ezekiel 20:23-24

20:23 I also swore 1  to them in the wilderness that I would scatter them among the nations and disperse them throughout the lands. 2  20:24 I did this 3  because they did not observe my regulations, they rejected my statutes, they desecrated my Sabbaths, and their eyes were fixed on 4  their fathers’ idols.

1 tn Heb “I lifted up my hand.”

2 sn Though the Pentateuch does not seem to know of this episode, Ps 106:26-27 may speak of God’s oath to exile the people before they had entered Canaan.

3 tn The words “I did this” are not in the Hebrew text, but are supplied for stylistic reasons. Verses 23-24 are one long sentence in the Hebrew text. The translation divides this sentence into two for stylistic reasons.

4 tn Or “they worshiped” (NCV, TEV, CEV); Heb “their eyes were on” or “were after” (cf. v. 16).
