Ezekiel 32:4-5


32:4 I will leave you on the ground,

I will fling you on the open field,

I will allow 1  all the birds of the sky to settle 2  on you,

and I will permit 3  all the wild animals 4  to gorge themselves on you.

32:5 I will put your flesh on the mountains,

and fill the valleys with your maggot-infested carcass. 5 

1 tn Or “cause.”

2 tn Heb “live.”

3 tn Or “cause.”

4 tn Heb “the beasts of the field,” referring to wild as opposed to domesticated animals.

5 tc The Hebrew text is difficult here, apparently meaning “your height.” Following Symmachus and the Syriac, it is preferable to emend the text to read “your maggots.” See D. I. Block, Ezekiel (NICOT), 2:203.
