Chapter Summary

Our textual-comparative methodology has identified a number of textual differences in Ezekiel 36 that are typically attributed by commentators to scribal errors, but for which there are likely exegetical and theological reasons. This chapter performs an intra-MT comparative study as well as an intra-LXX assessment, and also compares Masoretic texts (MT) with LXX trans-linguistically. In our representative manuscripts, chapter 36 appears to be thematically divided. The chapter covers the restoration of the mountains and the accusations against the mountains and land as if it was a living entity, yet at the same time challenges the ?enemy' concerning their words and deeds against God's land and people. It explains the people's sin as the reason for their dispersion. The chapter focuses on the restorative activity of God, announcing what he will do for Israel, and gives the reason for his actions: ?for the sake of my name'.

Keywords: Ezekiel; God; LXX trans-linguistically; Masoretic texts (MT); people's sin; textual-comparative methodology
