All the neighbors of Israel (Ezek 28:24-28:24)

“The house of Israel

Shall no longer

Find

A pricking brier

Or a piercing thorn

Among all

Their neighbors,

Who have treated them

With contempt.

They shall know

That I am Yahweh God.”

Things would go better with the neighbors of Israel. There would be no more prickly briers or piercing thorns among them. These bad neighbors had formerly treated Israel with contempt. Now they would know that Yahweh was truly God.
