Meaning

The verse "And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious rebukes; and they shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall lay my vengeance upon them" from Ezekiel 25:17 highlights the theme of divine justice and punishment. In this verse, God is portrayed as a powerful and righteous judge who will bring punishment to those who have wronged him and his people. The phrase "great vengeance" emphasizes the severity of the punishment that will be carried out by God, while "furious rebukes" suggests the intense anger and wrath that will accompany it. The purpose of this punishment is not only to bring justice to the wrongdoers but also to demonstrate God's power and authority, so that they may come to know and acknowledge that he is the true Lord. This verse serves as a warning to those who defy God's will and a reassurance to the faithful that ultimately God's justice will prevail.
