Ezekiel 2:5-6

Context
2:5 And as for them, 1  whether they listen 2  or not – for they are a rebellious 3  house 4  – they will know that a prophet has been among them. 2:6 But you, son of man, do not fear them, and do not fear their words – even though briers 5  and thorns 6  surround you and you live among scorpions – do not fear their words and do not be terrified of the looks they give you, 7  for they are a rebellious house!

Ezekiel 2:8

Context
2:8 As for you, son of man, listen to what I am saying to you: Do not rebel like that rebellious house! Open your mouth and eat what I am giving you.”

1 tn Heb “they”; the phrase “And as for them” has been used in the translation for clarity.

2 tn The Hebrew word implies obedience rather than mere hearing or paying attention.

3 tn This Hebrew adjective is also used to describe the Israelites in Num 17:25 and Isa 30:9.

4 sn The book of Ezekiel frequently refers to the Israelites as a rebellious house (Ezek 2:5, 6, 8; 3:9, 26-27; 12:2-3, 9, 25; 17:12; 24:3).

5 tn The Hebrew term occurs only here in the OT.

6 tn The Hebrew term is found elsewhere in the OT only in Ezek 28:24.

sn Here thorns may be a figure for hostility (Ezek 28:24; Mic 7:4).
