This chapter examines the readings of Ziegler in Ezekiel 18 in the light of the readings of Papyrus 967. These readings are evaluated, with suggestions for revising the original Greek of Ezekiel 18. As regards the value of Papyrus 967, two main views can be distinguished. Some scholars regard the papyrus as very important for the history of the text of Ezekiel in the Hebrew transmission of the book, with the papyrus representing an older version of the Hebrew. On the other hand, there are scholars who restrict the importance of this papyrus to the transmission of the Greek Ezekiel. The chapter relates the importance of Papyrus 967 for determining the original Greek. It then demonstrates that one must be careful to equate Papyrus 967 too easily with the original Greek. This is often done by referring to the important variants in Ezekiel 7
