Yahweh strikes his hands together (Ezek 22:13-22:13)

“See!

I strike

My hands together

At the dishonest gain

That you have made.

I strike

My hands together

At the blood

That has been shed

Within you.”

Yahweh was slapping his hands together, a gesture of indignation or a gesture as a need to get things done. Yahweh was upset about the dishonest gain that was happening in Jerusalem. He was also upset about the blood being shed there.
