Abstract / Description of output

This contribution deals with the prophecy about the coming end in Ezek 7:1-12a. Starting from the observation that there are major differences between the Masoretic and the Greek text tradition, it will be demonstrated that the Greek version attests to a Hebrew Vorlage that represents an older redactional stage, while the proto-Masoretic version is the result of a final reworking. Reconstructing an original core in Ezek 7:6aβ.7-9 that draws on the vision about the coming end in Amos 8:2, the paper traces the exegesis of this motif in the further literary development of Ezek 7:1-12a. Links between the proto-masoretic redaction and motifs that in Dan 8-9 refer to the reign of Antiochus IV. Epiphanes show that the late redactor in the book of Ezekiel condenses Antiochus’ reign of terror in the prophecy of the coming disaster (Ezek 7:5) that will descend upon Israel and the world in the final divine judgement.
