Text Commentary side-by-side

9.1–11 : The punishment of the guilty.

1–2 :

From the upper gate (Jer 20.2 ) came the executioners (divine functionaries mustered to punish) and a man clothed in linen, who functioned as the LORD's scribe, as did Nabu among the seven Babylonian planetary deities (cf. Rev 8.2,6 ). Linen, a bleached fabric signifying purity, was worn by priests (Lev 6.10 ) and angels (Dan 10.5 ).

3 :

On the departure of the glory, see 10.1–22n. The cherub, in the singular, is used of the inanimate pair of statues in the Temple (also 10.4 ). The actual living entities are referred to with the Heb plural, “cherubim.”

4 :

The mark was the Heb letter “taw,” made like an X (cf. Rev 7.3–4 ).

6 :

The elders are those of 8.16 .

7 :

Ezekiel's “Holiness Collection” traditions stressed that corpses defile (Lev 21.1; Num 5.2–3; 9.6; 19.11,13 ).
