Ezekiel 22:27-29

Context
22:27 Her officials are like wolves in her midst rending their prey – shedding blood and destroying lives – so they can get dishonest profit. 22:28 Her prophets coat their messages with whitewash. 1  They see false visions and announce lying omens for them, saying, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says,’ when the Lord has not spoken. 22:29 The people of the land have practiced extortion and committed robbery. They have wronged the poor and needy; they have oppressed the foreigner who lives among them and denied them justice. 2 

1 tn Heb “her prophets coat for themselves with whitewash.” The expression may be based on Ezek 13:10-15.

2 tn Heb “and the foreigner they have oppressed without justice.”
