Abstract :
Chapter 7 of Ezekiel voices an insistent announcement of doomsday. The divergences between MT and LXX are important. LXX is shorter, and, in the first part of the chapter, the order of the verses is different. These divergences are not due to accidental errors in the transmission of the text. Most of them are the result of a redactional activity on the side of MT. The redactor(s) specify the human instrument of the Lord's punishment on the final day, and morally disqualify him. Whereas LXX describes the threat in more general lines, MT seems to insert allusions pointing to Antiochus IV.
