Ezekiel 7:17

Context
NETBible

All of their hands will hang limp; their knees will be wet with urine. 1 

XREF

Isa 13:7,8; Jer 6:24; Eze 21:7; Heb 12:12

NET © Notes

tn Heb “their knees will run with water.” The expression probably refers to urination caused by fright, which is how the LXX renders the phrase. More colloquial English would simply be “they will wet their pants,” but as D. I. Block (Ezekiel [NICOT], 1:261, n. 98) notes, the men likely wore skirts which were short enough to expose urine on the knees.
