enquired of by you.

abominations of their fathers:

lifted up my hand unto the seed of the house of Ya’akov, and made myself known unto them
in the land of Mitzrayim, when I lifted up my hand unto them, saying, I am YHWH your
Elohim;
Eze 20:6 In the day I lifted up my hand unto them, to bring them forth of the land of Mitzrayim
into a land that I had espied for them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all
lands:
Eze 20:7 Then said I unto them, Cast you away every man the abominations of his eyes, and
defile not yourselves with the idols of Mitzrayim: I am YHWH your Elohim.
Eze 20:8 But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me: they did not every man
cast away * the abominations of their eyes, neither did they forsake the idols of Mitzrayim:
then I said, I will pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the
midst of the land of Mitzrayim.

into the land which I had given , flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands;

fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile yourselves with their idols:
Eze 20:19 I am YHWH your Elohim; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do
them;
Eze 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me and you, that you may
