Abstract Theodoret of Cyrus sets himself the task of explaining and elucidating the Greek text of Ezekiel to his readers in line with the principles of the Antiochene school. By doing so, he also offers them some philological devices, albeit on a small scale. The words leading to such comments indirectly reveal something about the extent to which his contemporary readers were acquainted with Septuagint Greek. This is the background over against which some of Theodoret's words in his Commentary to Ezekiel will be investigated in this contribution. After the selection of the words asking for some lexical information and their classification, this article will also deal with the way in which Theodoret explains them. In the conclusion, the results pertaining to the book of Ezekiel, as well as affecting the language and lexicography of the Septuagint, are brought together and compared to the results of Natalio Fernández Marcos' research on the Questions to the Octateuch and Questions to the Kings and Chronicles of Theodoret of Cyrus.
