Ezekiel 36

There are clearly parts of this that I have never read before. Probably skimmed it in some English version on a bus to work some morning in the late '60s, but never noticed or even could have noticed what it said. This is a remarkable description of the terrible responsibility of being Israel, even to the point of dispossession.

The image of segregation we have recently read in Leviticus 15. The uncleanness rituals are therefore not a trivial item that no longer matters. They matter because of the unique relationship between God and humanity, all nations, all lands, of which Israel has been the example. Not that some specific natural function of humanity is unclean, but that the giver of all gifts requires us totally, and refuses to let us worship what is not of ultimate value. By natural human function, such as a monthly period or leprosy, a language of uncleanness has been formed that can by analogy 'explain' that all encompassing desire of the One who makes all things holy.

Verse 27. Here is a parallel with Jeremiah 33. I expected from the translations that the form of the verb would be hiphil causative, I will make you walk, I will cause you to walk, etc. But in this case the verb for make עשה is separate from the verb to walk הלך. Hebrew doesn't use helping verbs like English does. This separation made me use undertake for both verbs in this verse, though make/do is the more common gloss for עשה. Twice in this chapter, עשה is used without an object, and I have used acting for the gloss.

Stumble כשׁל and bereave שׁכל are too close for scribal comfort. It is quite possible that they might be read or written as each other simply by transposing one letter. Related to the theme of nations, (verses 3-7. 13-15 and later), it is possible that one should read stumbling-block in a few places. JB makes the nations singular in verses 13-14 and links the idea to infanticide. I don't see why the plural should suddenly refer back to Israel rather than continuing the pervasive theme of Yahweh acting on behalf of the nations round about and Israel being the stumbling-block. A consistent understanding of nation in the passage will resonate more effectively to the reception of verses 20-23 in Romans 2:24.

Who will know that 'I am Yahweh'? Note even the mountains and hills will know. But their burden is also severe. Does Ezekiel see the ecological crisis?

Prepositions again. One is stuck - in, among, within, in the midst of, etc. There is no isomorphic relationship in a translation, within a translation, or among readers in the midst of the text. ב, קרב, תוך, they all fit grammatically, and they all have slightly different shades of that dreadful word meaning. Is the spirit here in, within, or among? Read with care.

When I publish, if ever, I will have a section that indicates which stem mappings are synonyms, which are interpretive choices or even ambiguous, and which are isomorphic, and where there are homonyms, and which English glosses I have allowed to map to multiple Hebrew stems. How should I set this up?

Ezekiel 36 Fn Min Max Syll
וְאַתָּ֣ה בֶן־אָדָ֔ם הִנָּבֵ֖א אֶל־הָרֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וְאָ֣מַרְתָּ֔ הָרֵי֙ יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל שִׁמְע֖וּ דְּבַר־יְהוָֽה
1 And you, child of humanity, prophesy to the mountains of Israel,
and say, Mountains of Israel, hear the word of Yahweh.
3e 4B 15
15
כֹּ֤ה אָמַר֙ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֔ה יַ֣עַן אָמַ֧ר הָאוֹיֵ֛ב עֲלֵיכֶ֖ם הֶאָ֑ח
וּבָמ֣וֹת עוֹלָ֔ם לְמֽוֹרָשָׁ֖ה הָ֥יְתָה לָּֽנוּ
2 C Thus says my Lord Yahweh, Because the enemy said against you, Aha, and the high places of eras past, for a possession are ours. 3c 4C 20
13
לָכֵן֙ הִנָּבֵ֣א וְאָמַרְתָּ֔ כֹּ֥ה אָמַ֖ר אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֑ה
יַ֣עַן בְּיַ֡עַן שַׁמּוֹת֩ וְשָׁאֹ֨ף אֶתְכֶ֜ם מִסָּבִ֗יב לִֽהְיוֹתְכֶ֤ם מֽוֹרָשָׁה֙ לִשְׁאֵרִ֣ית הַגּוֹיִ֔ם וַתֵּֽעֲל֛וּ עַל־שְׂפַ֥ת לָשׁ֖וֹן וְדִבַּת־עָֽם
3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus says my Lord Yahweh,
Because, because to desolate and to make you sigh on every side, that you might become a possession of the residue of the nations, and you are offered up by the lips of a tongue, and are an infamy of a people,
3d 4C 17
40
לָכֵן֙ הָרֵ֣י יִשְׂרָאֵ֔ל שִׁמְע֖וּ דְּבַר־אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֑ה
כֹּֽה־אָמַ֣ר אֲדֹנָ֣י יְ֠הוִה לֶהָרִ֨ים וְלַגְּבָע֜וֹת לָאֲפִיקִ֣ים וְלַגֵּאָי֗וֹת וְלֶחֳרָב֤וֹת הַשֹּֽׁמְמוֹת֙ וְלֶעָרִ֣ים הַנֶּעֱזָב֔וֹת אֲשֶׁ֨ר הָי֤וּ לְבַז֙ וּלְלַ֔עַג לִשְׁאֵרִ֥ית הַגּוֹיִ֖ם אֲשֶׁ֥ר מִסָּבִֽיב
4 Therefore, O mountains of Israel, hear the word of my Lord Yahweh,
Thus says my Lord Yahweh to the hills, and to the hillocks, to the river channels, and to the gorges, and to the deserts desolated, and to the cities forsaken, that were despoiled and derided of the residue of the nations who are on every side.
3e 4C 16
61
לָכֵ֗ן כֹּֽה־אָמַר֮ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִה֒ אִם־לֹ֠א בְּאֵ֨שׁ קִנְאָתִ֥י דִבַּ֛רְתִּי עַל־שְׁאֵרִ֥ית הַגּוֹיִ֖ם וְעַל־אֱד֣וֹם כֻּלָּ֑א

5 Therefore thus says my Lord Yahweh, Without fail, in the fire of my jealousy, I spoke to the residue of the nations, and concerning Edom, all of it,
who have assigned my land to themselves for a possession with all gladness of heart, with scourged integrity, in order to expel her to be despoiled.
3d 4C 33
31
לָכֵ֕ן הִנָּבֵ֖א עַל־אַדְמַ֣ת יִשְׂרָאֵ֑ל
וְאָמַרְתָּ֡ לֶהָרִ֣ים וְ֠לַגְּבָעוֹת לָאֲפִיקִ֨ים וְלַגֵּאָי֜וֹת כֹּֽה־אָמַ֣ר ׀ אֲדֹנָ֣י יְהוִ֗ה הִנְנִ֨י בְקִנְאָתִ֤י וּבַחֲמָתִי֙ דִּבַּ֔רְתִּי יַ֛עַן כְּלִמַּ֥ת גּוֹיִ֖ם נְשָׂאתֶֽם
6 Therefore prophesy on the ground of Israel,
and say to the hills and to the hillocks, to the river channels, and to the gorges, Thus says my Lord Yahweh, Behold me. In my jealousy and in my heat I have spoken, because the humiliation of nations you have borne.
3d 4C 11

7 Therefore thus says my Lord Yahweh, I myself lifted up my hand.
Without fail, the nations that are on every side of you, they, their humiliation will bear.

וַיְהִ֥י דְבַר־יְהוָ֖ה אֵלַ֥י לֵאמֹֽר 16 And the word of Yahweh happened to me, saying, 3e 3g 10
בֶּן־אָדָ֗ם בֵּ֤ית יִשְׂרָאֵל֙ יֹשְׁבִ֣ים עַל־אַדְמָתָ֔ם וַיְטַמְּא֣וּ אוֹתָ֔הּ בְּדַרְכָּ֖ם וּבַעֲלִֽילוֹתָ֑ם
כְּטֻמְאַת֙ הַנִּדָּ֔ה הָיְתָ֥ה דַרְכָּ֖ם לְפָנָֽי
17 Child of humanity, the house of Israel inhabited their ground, and they made it unclean by their way and by their practices,
as the uncleanness of the segregation was their way before me.

13
וָאֶשְׁפֹּ֤ךְ חֲמָתִי֙ עֲלֵיהֶ֔ם עַל־הַדָּ֖ם אֲשֶׁר־שָׁפְכ֣וּ עַל־הָאָ֑רֶץ
וּבְגִלּוּלֵיהֶ֖ם טִמְּאֽוּהָ

וַיָּב֗וֹא אֶל־הַגּוֹיִם֙ אֲשֶׁר־בָּ֣אוּ שָׁ֔ם וַֽיְחַלְּל֖וּ אֶת־שֵׁ֣ם קָדְשִׁ֑י
בֶּאֱמֹ֤ר לָהֶם֙ עַם־יְהוָ֣ה אֵ֔לֶּה וּמֵאַרְצ֖וֹ יָצָֽאוּ
20 And they came to the nations where they have come, and they profaned my holy name,
as if to say to them, The people of Yahweh these are, and from his land they have gone out.
