Ezekiel 14:12-13

12. The word of the Lord came again to me, saying,

12. Et fuit sermo Iehovae ad me, dicendo.

13. Son of man, when the land shineth against me by trespassing grievously, then will I stretch out mine hand upon it, and will break the staff of the bread thereof and will send famine upon it, and will cut off man and beast from it:

13. Fili hominis terra cum scelerate egerit erga me,1 et extendero manum meam super eam, et confregero in ipsa baculum panis, et immisero in ipsam famem, et excidero ex ipsa hominem et jumentum.


The next verse thought to be joined: for some interpreters altogether pervert the Prophet's sense by finishing the sentence there, as if he had said, I will extend my hand over it, &e. But the sentence is dependent, as we shall see --

1 "By prevaricating prevarication," according to some, lem megnel, properly signifies perfidy, hence the version just given -- Calvin.
