Ezekiel 13:10 New English Translation (NET Bible)

Footnotes:

  1. Ezekiel 13:10 tn Or “peace.”
  2. Ezekiel 13:10 tn The Hebrew word only occurs here in the Bible. According to L. C. Allen (Ezekiel [WBC], 1:202-3), it is also used in the Mishnah of a wall of rough stones without mortar. This fits the context here, which compares the false prophetic messages to a nice coat of whitewash on a structurally unstable wall.
