יז  וְעָשִׂיתִי בָם נְקָמוֹת גְּדֹלוֹת בְּתוֹכְחוֹת חֵמָה וְיָדְעוּ כִּי־אֲנִי יְהֹוָה בְּתִתִּי אֶת־נִקְמָתִי בָּם׃

25:17  They shall know that I am Hashem

Yechezkel begins a series of prophecies against the nations who either assisted the Babylonian destruction of Yehuda, or who rejoiced upon Yehuda’s downfall. Yechezkel describes how the Philistines “with utter scorn sought revenge” (verse 15). Therefore, God promises to execute a great vengeance on Philistia. The retribution will be so great that it will be clear that it came from Heaven. Hashem loves His people, Israel, even in times of punishment, and He personally involves Himself in their redemption and the downfall of their enemies.
