Chapter Summary

Since concluding that the MT of Ezekiel 18 and 20 offers a reliable basis for a vision of the relationship between individual and corporate responsibility in this biblical book, it appears sensible to clarify the composition of these chapters by means of a structural analysis. The analysis shows the literary composition and internal cohesion of both chapters as offered by the MT. The approach of the textual material in this structural analysis is synchronic. The description of the structure of Ezekiel 18 and 20 demonstrates the coherence of these two textual units. A brief sketch of the structure of Ezekiel precedes the structural analysis of both chapters. A threefold structure is recognizable in Ezekiel. Chapters 1-24 contain a message of judgment on Judah and Jerusalem. Chapters 25-32 feature the prophecies against the nations, and chapters 33-48 are characterized by a message of comfort, hope and restoration.

Keywords: corporate responsibility; Ezekiel 18; Ezekiel 20; individual responsibility; internal cohesion; structural analysis
