Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍1 

  1. NOW IT CAME TO pass in the thir­ti­eth year, in the fourth month, as I was among the cap­tives by the riv­er of Che‍′‍-‍bar, that the heav­ens were opened, and I saw vi­sions of ⟨God⟩.
  2. In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king Je-‍hoi‍′‍-‍a-‍chins captivity,
  3. The word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came (ex­press­ly) un­to E-‍ze‍′‍-‍ki-‍el the priest, the son of Bu‍′‍-‍zi, in the land of the Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍ans by the riv­er Che‍′‍-‍bar; and the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ was there up­on him.
  4. ⟨•And I looked, and, be­hold, a‍ ‍whirl­wind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire in­fold­ing it­self, and a bright­ness was about it, and out of the midst there­of as the col­our of am­ber, out of the midst of the fire.
  5. ⟨•Also out of the midst there­of came the like­ness of four liv­ing crea­tures. And this was their ap­pear­ance; they had the like­ness of a man.
  6. And ev­ery one had four faces, and ev­ery one had four wings.
  7. And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like the sole of a calfs foot: and they spar­kled like the col­our of‍ ‍bur­nished‍ ‍brass.
  8. And they had the hands of a man un­der their wings on their four sides; and they four had their fac­es and their wings.
  9. Their wings were joined one to an­oth­er; they turned not when they went; they went ev­ery one straight forward.
  10. As for the the like­ness of their fac­es, they four had the face of a man, and the face of a li­on, on the right side: and they four had the face of an ox on the left side; they four al­so had the face of an eagle.
  11. Thus were their fac­es: and their wings werestretched up­ward; two wings of ev­ery one were joined one to an­oth­er, and two cov­ered their bodies.
  12. And they went ev­ery one straight for­ward: whith­er the spir­it was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.
  13. As for the like­ness of the liv­ing crea­tures, their ap­pear­ance was like burn­ing coals of fire, and like the ap­pear­ance of lamps: it went up and down among the liv­ing crea­tures; and the fire was bright, and out of the fire went forth lightning.
  14. And the liv­ing crea­tures ran and re­turned as the ap­pear­ance of a flash of lightning.
  15. Now as I be­held the liv­ing crea­tures, be­hold (there was) one wheel up­on the earth by the liv­ing crea­tures, with his four faces.
  16. The ap­pear­ance of the wheels and their work was like un­to the col­our of a‍ ‍ber­yl: and they four had one like­ness: and their ap­pear­ance and their work was as it were‍‍a‍ ‍wheel in the mid­dle of‍ ‍a‍ ‍wheel.
  17. When they went, they went up­on their four sides: and they turned not when they went.
  18. As for their rings, they were so high that they were dread­ful; and their rings were full of‍ ‍eyes round about them four.
  19. And when the liv­ing crea­tures went, the wheels went by them: and when the liv­ing crea­tures were lift­ed up from the earth, the wheels were lift­ed up (with‍ ‍them).
  20. Whithersoever the spir­it was to go, they went, thith­er was their spir­it to go; and the wheels were lift­ed up over against them: for the spir­it of the liv­ing crea­ture was in the‍ ‍wheels.
  21. When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood; and when those were lift­ed up from the earth, the wheels were lift­ed up over against them: for the spir­it of the liv­ing crea­ture was in‍ ‍the‍ ‍wheels.
  22. And the like­ness of the fir­ma­ment up­on the heads of the liv­ing crea­ture was as the col­our of the ter­ri­ble crys­tal,? stretched forth over their heads above.
  23. And un­der the fir­ma­mentwere their wings straight (up­ward), the one to­ward the oth­er: ev­ery one had two, which cov­ered on this side, and ev­ery one had two, which cov­ered on that side, their bodies.
  24. And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the noise of great wa­ters, as the voice of the Al­migh­ty, the voice of speech, as the noise of an‍ ‍host: when they stood, they let down their (raised) ‍wings.
  25. And there was a‍ ‍voice from the fir­ma­ment that was over their heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.
  26. ⟨•And above the fir­ma­ment that was over their heads was the like­ness of a throne, as the ap­pear­ance of a‍ ‍sap­phire stone: and up­on the like­ness of the throne was the like­ness as the ap­pear­ance of a man above up­on it.
  27. And I saw as the col­our of am­ber, as the ap­pear­ance of fire round about with­in it, from the ap­pear­ance of his loins even up­ward, and from the ap­pear­ance of his loins even down­ward, I saw as it were the ap­pear­ance of fire, and it had bright­ness round about.
  28. As the ap­pear­ance of the (rainbow that is in the cloud in the day of rain, so was the ap­pear­ance of the bright­ness round about. This was the ap­pear­ance of the like­ness of the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩. And when I saw it, I fell up­on my face, and I heard a‍ ‍voice of one that spake.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍2 
  1. AND HE SAID UNTO me, Son of man, stand up­on thy feet, and I will speak un­to thee.
  2. And the spir­it en­tered in­to me when he spake un­to me, and set me up­on my feet, that I heard him that spake un­to me.
  3. And he said un­to me, Son of man, I send thee to the chil­dren of Is­ra­el, to a re­bel­lious na­tion that hath re­belled against me: they and their fa­thers have trans­gressed against me, even un­to this day.
  4. For they areim­pu­dent chil­dren and stiff­heart­ed. I do send thee un­to them; and thou shalt say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  5. And they, wheth­er they will hear, or wheth­er they will for­bear, (for they are a re­b­el­lious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a proph­et among them.
  6. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, nei­ther be afraid of their words, though bri­ers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scor­pi­ons: be not afraid of their words, nor be dis­mayed at their looks, though they be a re­bel­lious house.
  7. And thou shalt speak my words un­to them, wheth­er they will hear, or wheth­er they will for­bear: for they are most rebellious.
  8. But thou, son of man, hear what I say un­to thee; Be not thou re­bel­lious like that re­bel­lious house: open thy mouth, and eat that (which) I give thee.
  9. And when I looked, be­hold, an hand was sent un­to me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
  10. And he spread it be­fore me; and it was writ­ten with­in and with­out: and there was writ­ten there­in lam­en­ta­tions, and mourn­ing, and‍ ‍woe.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍3 
  1. MOREOVER HE SAID un­to me, Son of man, eat that (which) thou find­est; eat this roll, and go speak un­to the house of Israel.
  2. So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
  3. And he said un­to me, Son of man, cause thy bel­ly to eat, and fill thy bow­els with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as hon­ey for sweetness.
  4. And he said un­to me, Son of man, go, get thee un­to the house of Is­ra­el, and speak with my words un­to them.
  5. For thou art not sent to a peo­ple of a strange speech and of an hard lan­guage, but to the house of Is­ra­el;
  6. Not to ma­ny peo­ple of a strange speech and of an hard lan­guage, whose words thou canst not un­der­stand. Sure­ly, had I sent thee to them, they would have heark­ened un­to thee.
  7. But the house of Is­ra­el will not heark­en un­to thee; for they will not heark­en un­to me: for all the house of Is­ra­el areim­pu­dent and hardhearted.
  8. Behold, I have made thy face strong against their fac­es, and thy fore­head strong against their foreheads.
  9. As an ad­a­mant hard­er than flint have I made thy fore­head: fear them not, nei­ther be dis­mayed at their looks, though they be a re­bel­lious house.
  10. Moreover he said un­to me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak un­to thee re­ceive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
  11. And go, get thee to them of the cap­tiv­ity, un­to the chil­dren of thy peo­ple, and speak un­to them, and tell them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; wheth­er they will hear, or wheth­er they will forebear.
  12. Then the spir­it took me up, and I heard be­hind me a voice of a great rush­ing, say­ing, Bless­ed be the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ from his place.
  13. I heard al­so the noise of the wings of the liv­ing crea­tures that touched one an­oth­er, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
  14. So the spir­it lift­ed me up, and took me away, and I went in bit­ter­ness, in the heat of my spir­it; but the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ was strong up­on me.
  15. Then I came to them of the cap­tiv­ity at‍ ‍Tel–‍a‍′‍-‍bib, that dwelt by the riv­er of Che‍′‍-‍bar, and I sat where they sat, and re­mained there as­ton­ished among them sev­en days.
  16. And it came to pass at the end of sev­en days, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  17. ⟨•Son of man, I have made thee a watch­man un­to the house of Is­ra­el: there­fore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warn­ing from me.
  18. When I say un­to the wick­ed, Thou shalt sure­ly die; and thou giv­est him not warn­ing, nor speak­est to warn the wick­ed from his wick­ed way, to save his life; the same wick­ed man shall die in his in­iq­ui­ty; but his blood will I re­quire at thine hand.
  19. Yet if thou warn the wick­ed, and he turn not from his wick­ed­ness, nor from his wick­ed way, he shall die in his in­iq­ui­ty; but thou hast de­liv­ered thy‍ ‍soul.
  20. Again, When a righ­teous man doth turn from his righ­teous­ness, and com­mit in­iq­ui­ty, and I lay a stum­bling­block be­fore him, he shall die: be­cause thou hast not giv­en him warn­ing, he shall die in his sin, and his righ­teous­ness which he hath done shall not be re­mem­bered; but his blood will I re­quire at thine hand.
  21. Nevertheless if thou warn the righ­teous man, that the righ­teous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall sure­ly live, be­cause he is‍ ‍warned; al­so thou hast de­liv­ered thy‍ ‍soul.•⟩
  22. And the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ was there up­on me; and he said un­to me, Arise, go forth in­to the plain, and I will there talk with thee.
  23. Then I arose, and went forth in­to the plain: and, be­hold, the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ stood there, as the glo­ry which I saw by the riv­er of Che‍′‍-‍bar: and I fell on my face.
  24. Then the spir­it en­tered in­to me, and set me up­on my feet, and spake with me, and said un­to me, Go, shut thy­self with­in thine house.
  25. But thou, O‍ ‍son of man, be­hold, they shall put bands up­on thee, and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:
  26. And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a re­prov­er: for they are a re­bel­lious house.
  27. But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩; He that hear­eth, let him hear; and he that for­bear­eth, let him for­bear: for they are a re­bel­lious house.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍4 
  1. THOU AL­SO, SON OF man, take thee a tile, and lay it be­fore thee, and pour­tray(sic)‌up­on it the city, even Jerusalem:
  2. And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp al­so against it, and set bat­ter­ing rams against it round about.
  3. Moreover take thou un­to thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron be­tween thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be be­sieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.
  4. Lie thou al­so up­on thy left side and lay the in­iq­ui­ty of the house of Is­ra­el up­on it: ac­cord­ing to the num­ber of days that thou shalt lie up­on it thou shalt bear their‍ ‍iniquity.
  5. For I have laid up­on thee the years of their in­iq­ui­ty, ac­cord­ing to the num­ber of the days, three hun­dred and nine­ty days: so shalt thou bear the in­iq­ui­ty of the house of Israel‍.[390]
  6. And when thou hast accom­plished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the  in­iq­ui­ty of the house of Ju­dah for­ty days: I have ap­point­ed thee each day for a year(to prophesy).[40]
  7. Therefore thou shalt set thy face to­ward the siege of Je­ru­sa­lem, and thine arm shall be un­cov­ered, and thou shalt proph­e­sy against it.
  8. And, be­hold, I will lay bands up­on thee, and thout shalt not turn thee from one side to an­oth­er, till thou hast end­ed the days of thy siege.
  9. Take thou al­so un­to thee wheat, and bar­ley, and beans, and len­tiles, and mil­let, and fitch­es, and put them in one ves­sel, and make thee bread there­of, ac­cord­ing to the num­ber of the days that thou shalt lie up­on thy side, three hun­dred and nine­ty days shalt thou eat thereof‍.[390]
  10. And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twen­ty shek‍′‍-‍els a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
  11. Thou shalt drink al­so wa­ter by meas­ure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
  12. And thou shalt eat it as bar­ley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that com­eth out of man, in their sight.
  13. And the ⟨Lord⟩ said, Even thus shall the chil­dren of Is­ra­el eat their de­filed bread among the Gen­tiles, whith­er I will drive them.
  14. Then said I, Ah ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩! be­hold, my soul hath not been pol­lut­ed: for from my youth up even till now have I not eat­en of that which di­eth of it­self, or is torn in piec­es; nei­ther came there abom­i­na­ble flesh in­to my mouth.
  15. Then he said un­to me, Lo, I have giv­en thee cows dung for mans dung, and thou shalt pre­pare thy bread therewith.
  16. Moreover he said un­to me, Son of man, be­hold, I will break the staff of bread in Je­ru­sa­lem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink wa­ter by meas­ure, and with astonishment:
  17. That they may want bread and wa­ter, and be as­ton­ied one with an­oth­er, and con­sume away for their‍ ‍iniquity.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍5 
  1. AND THOU, SON OF man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a bar­bers ra­zor, and cause it to pass up­on thine head and up­on thy beard: then take thee bal­anc­es to‍ ‍weigh, and di­vide the hair.
  2. Thou shalt burn with fire a third in the midst of the city, when the days of the siege are ful­filled: and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scat­ter in the wind; and I will draw out a sword af­ter them.
  3. Thou shalt al­so take there­of a few in num­ber, and bind them in thy skirts.
  4. Then take of them again, and cast them in­to the midst of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for there­of shall a fire come forth in­to all the house of Israel.
  5. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; This is Je­ru­sa­lem: I have set it in the midst of the na­tions and coun­tries that are round about her.
  6. And she hath changed my judg­ments in­to wick­ed­ness more than the na­tions, and my stat­utes more than the coun­tries that are round about her: for they have re­fused my judg­ments and my stat­utes, they have not walked in them.
  7. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause ye mul­ti­plied more than the na­tions that are round about you, and have not walked in my stat­utes, nei­ther have kept my judg­ments, nei­ther have done ac­cord­ing to the judg­ments of the na­tions that are round about you;
  8. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I, even I, am against thee, and will ex­e­cute judg­ments in the midst of thee in the sight of the na­tions.
  9. And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and where­un­to I will not do any more the like, be­cause of all thine abominations.
  10. Therefore the fa­thers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee, and the sons shall eat their fa­thers; and I will ex­e­cute judg­ments in thee, and the whole rem­nant of thee will I scatter in­­to all the‍ ‍winds.
  11. Wherefore, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Sure­ly, be­cause thou hast de­filed my sanc­tu­ary with all thy de­test­a­ble things, and with all thine abom­i­na­tions, there­fore will I al­so di­min­ish thee; nei­ther shall mine eye spare, nei­ther will I have any pity.
  12. A third part of thee shall die with the pes­ti­lence, and with fam­ine shall they be con­sumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scat­ter a third part in­­­to all the winds, and I will draw out a sword af­ter them.
  13. Thus shall mine an­ger be ac­com­plished, and I will cause my fu­ry to rest up­on them, and I will be com­fort­ed: and they shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it in my zeal, when I have ac­com­plished my fu­ry in them.
  14. Moreover I will make thee (a) waste­(land), and a‍ ‍re­proach among the na­tions that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.
  15. So it shall be a‍ ‍re­proach and a taunt, an in­struc­tion and an as­ton­ish­ment un­to the na­tions that are round about thee, when I shall ex­e­cute judg­ments in thee in an­ger and in fu­ry and in fu­ri­ous re­bukes, I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
  16. When I shall send up­on them the evil ar­rows of fam­ine, which shall be for their de­struc­tion, and which I will send to de­stroy you: and I will in­crease the fam­ine up­on you, and will break your staff of bread:
  17. So will I send up­on you fam­ine and evil beasts, and they shall be­reave thee; and pes­ti­lence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will bring the sword up­on thee. I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍6 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face to­ward the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, and prophe­sy against them,
  3. And say, Ye moun­tains of Is­ra­el, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ to the moun­tains, and to the hills, to the riv­ers, and to the val­leys; Be­hold, I, even I, will bring a sword up­on you, and I will de­stroy your high places,
  4. And youyr al­tars shall be des­o­late, and your im­ag­es shall be bro­ken: and I will cast down your slain men be­fore your idols.
  5. And I will lay the dead car­cas­es of the chil­dren of Is­ra­el be­fore their idols; and I will scat­ter your bones round about your altars.
  6. In all your dwell­ing­plac­es the cit­ies shall be laid waste, and the high plac­es shall be des­o­late; that your al­tars may be laid waste and made des­o­late, and your idols may be bro­ken and cease, and your im­ag­es may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.
  7. And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  8. Yet will I leave a rem­nant, that ye may have some that shall es­cape the sword among the na­tions, when ye shall be scat­tered through the countries.
  9. And they that es­cape of you shall re­mem­ber me among the na­tions whith­er they shall be car­ried cap­tives, be­cause I am bro­ken with their whor­ish heart, which hath de­part­ed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whor­ing af­ter their idols: and they shall lothe(sic)‌them­selves for the evils which they have com­mit­ted in all their abominations.
  10. And they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil un­to them.
  11. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abom­i­na­tions of the house of Is­ra­el! for they shall fall by the sword, by the fam­ine, and by the pestilence.
  12. He that is far off shall die of the pes­ti­lence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that re­main­eth and is bge­sieged shall die by the fam­ine: thus will I ac­com­plish my fu­ry up­on them.
  13. Then shall ye know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when their slain men shall be among their idols round about their al­tars, up­on ev­ery high hill, in all the tops of the moun­tains, and un­der ev­ery green tree, and un­der ev­ery thick oak, the place where they did of­fer sweet sa­vour to all their idols.
  14. So will I stretch out my hand up­on them, and make the land des­o­late, yea, more des­o­late than the wil­der­ness to­ward Dib‍′‍-‍lath, in all their hab­i­ta­tions: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍7 
  1. MOREOVER THE WORD of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Also, thou son of man, thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ un­to the land of Is­ra­el; An end, the end is come up­on the four cor­ners of the land.
  3. Now is the end come up­on thee, and will judge thee ac­cord­ing to thy ways, and will rec­om­pense up­on thee all thine abominations.
  4. And mine eye shall not spare thee, nei­ther will I have pity: but I will rec­om­pense thy ways up­on thee, and thine abom­i­na­tions shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  5. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; An evil, an only evil, be­hold, is come.
  6. An end is come, the end is come: it watch­eth for thee; be­hold, it is come.
  7. The morn­ing is come un­to thee, O‍ ‍thou that dwell­est in the land: the time is come, the day of trou­ble is near, and not the sound­ing again of the mountains.
  8. Now will I short­ly pour out my fu­ry up­on thee: and I will judge thee ac­cord­ing to thy ways, and will rec­om­pense thee for all thine abominations.
  9. And mine eye shall not spare, nei­ther will I have pity: I will rec­om­pense thee ac­cord­ing to thy ways and thine abom­i­na­tions that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ that smiteth.
  10. Behold the day, be­hold, it is come: the morn­ing is gone forth; the rod hath blos­somed, pride hath budded.
  11. Violence is ris­en up in­to a rod of wick­ed­ness: none of them shall re­main, nor of their mul­ti­tude, nor of any of theirs: nei­ther shall there be wail­ing for them.
  12. The time is come, the day draw­eth near: let not the buy­er re­joice, nor the sell­er mourn: for wrath is up­on all the mul­ti­tude thereof.
  13. For the sell­er shall not re­turn to that which is sold, al­though they were yet alive: for the vi­sion is touch­ing the whole mul­ti­tude there­of, which shall not re­turn; nei­ther shall any strength­en him­self in the in­iq­ui­ty of his life.
  14. They have blown the trum­pet, even to make all rea­dy; but none go­eth to the bat­tle: for my wrath is up­on all the mul­ti­tude thereof.
  15. The sword is with­out, and the pes­ti­lence and the fam­ine with­in: he that is in the field shall die with the sword; and he that is in the city, fam­ine and pes­ti­lence shall de­vour him.
  16. But they that es­cape of them shall es­cape, and shall be on the moun­tains like doves of the val­leys, all of them mourn­ing, ev­ery one for his‍ ‍iniquity.
  17. All hands shall be fee­ble, and all knees shall be weak as‍ ‍water.
  18. They shall al­so gird them­selves with sack­cloth, and hor­ror shall cov­er them; and shame shall be up­on all fac­es, and bald­ness up­on all their heads.
  19. They shall cast their sil­ver in the streets, and their gold shall be re­moved: their sil­ver and their gold shall not be able to de­liv­er them in the day of the wrath of the ⟨Lord⟩: they shall not (be able to)‍ ‍sat­is­fy their souls, nei­ther (shall they be able to)‍ ‍fill their bow­els: be­cause it is the stum­bling­block of their‍ ‍iniquity.
  20. As for the beau­ty of his or­na­ment, he set it in maj­es­ty: but they made the im­ag­es of their abom­i­na­tions and of their de­test­a­ble things there­in: there­fore have I‍ ‍set it far from them.
  21. And I will give it in­to the hands of stran­gers for a prey, and to the wick­ed of the earth for a‍ ‍spoil; and they shall pol­lute it.
  22. My face will I turn al­so from them, and they shall pol­lute my se­cret place: for the rob­bers shall en­ter in­to it, and de­file it.
  23. Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
  24. Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heath­en, and they shall pos­sess their hous­es: I will al­so make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their (“)‍holy‍(”) plac­es shall be defiled.
  25. Destruction com­eth; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
  26. Mischief shall come up­on mis­chief, and ru­mour shall be up­on ru­mour; then shall they seek a‍ ‍vi­sion of the proph­et; but the law shall per­ish from the priest, and coun­sel from the‍ ‍ancients.
  27. The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with des­o­la­tion, and the hands of the peo­ple of the land shall be trou­bled: I will do un­to them af­ter their way, and ac­cord­ing to their de­serts will I judge them; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍8 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the el­ders of Ju­dah sat be­fore me, that the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ fell there up­on me.
  2. Then I be­held, and lo a like­ness as the ap­pear­ance of fire: from the ap­pear­ance of his loins even down­ward, fire; and from his loins even up­ward, as the ap­pear­ance of bright­ness, as the col­our of amber.
  3. And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spir­it lift­ed me up be­tween the earth and the (first) heav­en, and brought me in the vi­sions of ⟨God⟩ to Je­ru­sa­lem, to the door of the in­ner gate, that look­eth to­ward the north; where was the seat of the im­age of jeal­ousy, which pro­vok­eth to jealousy.
  4. And, be­hold, the glo­ry of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el was there, ac­cord­ing to the vi­sion that I saw in the plain.
  5. Then said he un­to me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way to­ward the north. So I lift­ed up mine eyes the way to­ward the north, and be­hold north­ward at the gate of the al­tar this im­age of jeal­ousy in the entry.
  6. He said fur­ther­more un­to me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abom­i­na­tions that the house of Is­ra­el com­mit­teth here, that I should go far off from my sanc­tu­ary (and not see it)‍? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see great­er abominations.
  7. And he brought me to the door of the court: and when I looked, be­hold a hole in the wall.
  8. Then said he un­to me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, be­hold a door.
  9. And he said un­to me, Go in, and be­hold the wick­ed abom­i­na­tions that they do here.
  10. So I went in and saw; and be­hold ev­ery form of creep­ing things, and abom­in­a­ble beasts, and all the idols of the house of Is­ra­el, pour­trayed(sic)up­on the wall‍(s) round about.
  11. And there stood be­fore them sev­en­ty men of the an­cients of the house of Is­ra­el, and in the midst of them stood Ja-‍az-‍a-‍ni‍′‍-‍ah the son of Sha‍′‍-‍phan, with ev­ery man his cen­ser in his hand; and a thick cloud of in­cense went up‍.[70]
  12. Then said he un­to me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the an­cients of the house of Is­ra­el do in the dark, ev­ery man in‍ ‍the cham­bers of his im­ag­ery? for they say, The ⟨Lord⟩ seeth us not; the ⟨Lord⟩ hath for­sak­en the earth.
  13. He said al­so un­to me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see great­er abom­i­na­tions that they do.
  14. Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the ⟨Lord’s⟩ house which was to­ward the north; and, be­hold,‌there sat wom­en weep­ing for‍ ‍Ta‍′‍-‍muz.
  15. Then said he un­to me, Hast thou seen this, O‍ ‍son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see great­er abom­i­na­tions than these.
  16. And he brought me in­to the in­ner court of the ⟨Lords⟩ house, and, be­hold, at the door of the tem­ple of the ⟨Lord⟩, be­tween the porch and the al­tar, were about five and twen­ty men, with their backs to­ward the tem­ple of the ⟨Lord⟩, and their fac­es to­ward the east; and they wor­ship­ped the sun to­ward the east‍.[25]
  17. Then he said un­to me, Hast thou seen this, O‍ ‍son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Ju­dah that they com­mit the abom­i­na­tions which they com­mit here? for they have filled the land with‍ ‍vi­o­lence, and have re­turned to pro­voke me to an­ger: and,‍ ‍lo, they put the branch to their nose.
  18. Therefore will I al­so deal in fu­ry: mine eye shall not spare, nei­ther will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.•⟩
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍9 
  1. HE CRIED ALSO IN mine ears with a loud voice, say­ing, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even ev­ery manwith his de­stroy­ing weap­on in his hand.
  2. And, be­hold, six men came from the way of the high­er gate, which li­eth to­ward the north, and ev­ery man(had) a slaugh­ter weap­on in his hand; and one man among them was clothed with lin­en, with a‍ ‍writ­ers ink­horn by his side: and they went in, and stood be­side the bra­zen‍ ‍altar.
  3. And the glo­ry of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el was gone up from the cher­ub, where­up­on he was, to the thresh­old of the house. And he called to the man clothed with lin­en, which had the writ­ers ink­horn by his side;
  4. And the ⟨Lord⟩ said un­to him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Je­ru­sa­lem, and set a mark up­on the fore­heads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abom­i­na­tions that be done in the midst thereof.
  5. And to the oth­ers he said in mine hear­ing, Go ye af­ter him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, nei­ther have ye pity:
  6. Slay ut­ter­ly old and young, both maids, and lit­tle chil­dren, and wom­en: but come not near any man up­on whom is the mark; and be­gin at my sanc­tu­ary. Then they be­gan at the an­cient men which were be­fore the house.
  7. And he said un­to them, De­file the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.
  8. And it came to pass, while they were slay­ing them, and I was left, that I fell up­on my face, and cried, and said, Ah ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩! wilt thou de­stroy all the res­i­due of Is­ra­el in thy pour­ing out of thy fu­ry up­on Jerusalem?
  9. Then said he un­to me, The in­iq­ui­ty of the house of Is­ra­el and Ju­dah is ex­ceed­ing great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of per­verse­ness: for they say, The ⟨Lord⟩ hath for­sak­en the earth, and the ⟨Lord⟩ seest not.
  10. And as for me al­so, mine eye shall not spare, nei­ther will I have pity, but I will rec­om­pense their way up­on their head.
  11. And, be­hold, the man clothed with lin­en, which had the ink­horn by his side, re­port­ed the mat­ter, say­ing, I have done as thou hast com­mand­ed me.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍10 
  1. THEN I LOOKED, AND, be­hold, in the fir­ma­ment that was above the head of the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims there ap­peared over them as it were a‍ ‍sap­phire stone, as the ap­pear­ance of the like­ness of a throne.
  2. And he spake un­to the man clothed with lin­en, and said, Go in be­tween the wheels, even un­der the cher­ub, and fill thine hand with coals of fire from be­tween the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims, and scat­ter them over the city. And he went in in my sight.
  3. Now the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims stood on the right side of the house, when the man went in; and the cloud filled the in­ner court.
  4. Then the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ went up from the cher­ub, and stood over the thresh­old of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and the court was full of the bright­ness of the ⟨Lords⟩ glory.
  5. And the sound of the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims wings was heard even to the out­er court, as the voice of the Al­migh­ty ⟨God⟩ when he speaketh.
  6. And it came to pass, that when he had com­mand­ed the man clothed with lin­en, say­ing, Take fire from be­tween the wheels, from be­tween the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims; then he went in, and stood be­side the wheels.
  7. And one cher­ub stretched forth his hand from be­tween the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims un­to the fire that was be­tween the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims, and took there­of, and put it in­to the hands of‍ ‍him that was clothed with lin­en: who took it, and went out.
  8. And there ap­peared in the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims the form of a mans hand un­der their wings.
  9. And when I looked, be­hold the four wheels by the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims, one wheel by one cher­ub, and anoth­er wheel by an­oth­er cher­ub: and the ap­pear­ance of the wheels was as the col­our of a‍ ‍ber­yl‍ ‍stone.
  10. And as for their ap­pear­ances, they four had one like­ness, as if a‍ ‍wheel had been in the midst of a‍ ‍wheel.
  11. When they went, they went up­on their four sides; they turned not as they went, but to the place whith­er the head looked they fol­lowed it; they turned not as they went.
  12. And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and their wings, and the wheels, were full of‍ ‍eyes round about, even the wheels that they four had.
  13. As for the wheels, it was cried un­to them in my hear­ing, O‍ ‍wheel.
  14. And ev­ery one had four fac­es: the first face was the face of a cher­ub, and the sec­ond face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a li­on, and the fourth the face of an eagle.
  15. And the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims were lift­ed up. This is the liv­ing crea­ture that I saw by the riv­er of Che‍′‍-‍bar.
  16. And when the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims went, the wheels went by them: and when the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims lift­ed up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels al­so turned not from be­side them.
  17. When they stood, these stood; and when they were lift­ed up, these lift­ed up them­selves al­so: for the spir­it of the liv­ing crea­ture was in them.
  18. Then the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ de­part­ed from off the thresh­old of the house, and stood over the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims.
  19. And the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims lift­ed up their wings, and mount­ed up from the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels al­so were be­side them, and ev­ery one stood at the door of the east gate of the ⟨Lords⟩ house; and the glo­ry of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el was over them above.
  20. This is the liv­ing crea­ture that I saw un­der the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el by the riv­er Che‍′‍-‍bar; and I knew that they were the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims.
  21. Every one had four fac­es apiece, and ev­ery one four wings; and the like­ness of the hands of a man was un­der their wings.
  22. And the like­ness of their fac­es was the same fac­es which I saw by the riv­er of Che‍′‍-‍bar, their ap­pear­ances and them­selves: they went ev­ery one straight forward.•⟩
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍11 
  1. MOREOVER THE SPIR­IT lift­ed me up, and brought me un­to the east gate of the ⟨Lords⟩ house, which look­eth east­ward: and be­hold at the door of the gate five and twen­ty men; among whom I saw Ja-‍az-‍a-‍ni‍′‍-‍ah the son of A‍′‍-‍zur, and Pel-‍a-‍ti‍′‍-‍ah the son of Be-‍na‍′‍-‍iah, princ­es of the people‍.[25]
  2. Then said he un­to me, Son of man, these are the men that de­vise mis­chief, and give wick­ed coun­sel in this city:
  3. Which say, It is not near; let us build hous­es: this city is the cal­dron, and we be the flesh.
  4. Therefore proph­e­sy against them, proph­e­sy, O‍ ‍son of man.
  5. And the Spirit of the ⟨Lord⟩ fell up­on me, and said un­to me, Speak; Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩; Thus have ye said, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el: for‍ ‍⟨•I know the things that come in­to your mind, ev­ery one of them.•⟩
  6. Ye have mul­ti­plied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the streets there­of with the slain.
  7. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Your slain whom ye have laid in the midst of it, they are the flesh, and this city is the caldron: but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it.
  8. Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword up­on you, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  9. And I will bring you out of the midst there­of, and de­liv­er you in­to the hands of stran­gers, and will ex­e­cute judg­ments among you.
  10. Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the bor­der of Is­ra­el; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  11. This city shall not be your cal­dron, nei­ther shall ye be the flesh in the midst there­of; but I will judge you in the bor­der of Israel:
  12. And ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩: for ye have not walked in my stat­utes, nei­ther ex­e­cut­ed my judg­ments, but have done af­ter the man­ners of the heath­en that are round about you.
  13. And it came to pass, when I proph­e­sied, that Pel-‍a-‍ti‍′‍-‍ah the son of Be-‍na‍′‍-‍iah died. Then fell I down up­on my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩! wilt thou make a full end of the rem­nant of Israel?
  14. Again the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  15. Son of man, thy breth­ren, even thy breth­ren, the men of thy kin­dred, and all the house of Is­ra­el whol­ly, are they un­to whom the in­hab­it­ants of Je­ru­sa­lem have said, Get you far from the ⟨Lord⟩: un­to us is this land giv­en in possession.
  16. Therefore say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Al­though I have cast them far off among the heath­en, and al­though I have scat­tered them among the coun­tries, yet will I be to them as a lit­tle sanc­tu­ary in the coun­tries where they shall come.
  17. Therefore say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will even gath­er you from the peo­ple, and as­sem­ble you out of the coun­tries where ye have been scat­tered, and I will give you the land of Israel.
  18. And they shall come thith­er, and they shall take away all the de­test­a­ble things there­of and all the abom­i­na­tions there­of from thence.
  19. And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spir­it with­in you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh.
  20. That they may walk in my stat­utes, and keep mine or­di­nanc­es, and do them: and they shall be my peo­ple, and I will be their ⟨God⟩.
  21. But as for them whose heart walk­eth af­ter the heart of their de­test­a­ble things and thir abom­i­na­tions, I will rec­om­pense their way up­on their own heads, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  22. Then did the cher‍′‍-‍u-‍bims lift up their wings, and the wheels be­side them; and the glo­ry of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el was over them above.
  23. And the glo­ry of the ⟨Lord⟩ went up from the midst of the city, and stood up­on the moun­tain which is on the east side of the city.
  24. Afterwards the spir­it took me up, and brought me in a‍ ‍vi­sion by the Spirit of ⟨God⟩ in­to Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍a, to them of the cap­tiv­ity. So the vi­sion that I had seen went up from me.
  25. Then I spake un­to them of the cap­tiv­ity all the things that the ⟨Lord⟩ had shewed me.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍12 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ al­so came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, thou dwell­est in the midst of a re­bel­lious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a re­bel­lious house.
  3. Therefore, thou son of man, pre­pare thee stuff for re­mov­ing, and re­move by day in their sight; and thou shalt re­move from thy place to an­oth­er place in their sight: it may be they will con­sid­er, though they be a re­bellious house.
  4. Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for re­mov­ing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth in­to captivity.
  5. Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and car­ry out thereby.
  6. In their sight shalt thou bear it up­on thy shoul­ders, and car­ry it forth in the twi­light: thou shalt cov­er thy face, that thou see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign un­to the house of Israel.
  7. And I did so as I was com­mand­ed: I brought forth my stuff by‍ ‍day, as stuff for cap­tiv­ity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twi­light, and I bare it up­on my shoul­der in their sight.
  8. And in the morn­ing came the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ un­to me, saying,
  9. Son of man, hath not the house of Is­ra­el, the re­bel­lious house, said un­to thee, What do­est thou?
  10. Say thou un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; This bur­dencon­cern­eth the prince in Je­ru­sa­lem, and all the house of Is­ra­el that are among them.
  11. Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done un­to them: they shall (be) re­move(d)andgo in­to‍ ‍cap­tiv­ity.
  12. And the prince that is among them shall bear up­on his shoul­der in the twi­light, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to car­ry out there­by: he shall cov­er his face, that he see not the ground with his eyes.
  13. My net al­so will I spread up­on him, and he shall be tak­en in my snare: and I will bring him to Bab­y­lon to the land of the Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍ans; yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.
  14. And I will scat­ter to­ward ev­ery wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword af­ter them.
  15. And they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I shall scat­ter them among the na­tions, and dis­perse them in the countries.
  16. But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the fam­ine, and from the pes­ti­lence; that they may de­clare all their abom­i­na­tions among the heath­en whith­er they come; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  17. Moreover the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came to me, saying,
  18. Son of man, eat thy bread with quak­ing, and drink thy wa­ter with trem­bling and with‍ ‍carefulness;
  19. And say un­to the peo­ple of the land, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ of the in­hab­it­ants of Je­ru­sa­lem, and of the land of Is­ra­el; They shall eat their bread with care­ful­ness, and drink their wa­ter with as­ton­ish­ment, that her land may be des­o­late from all that is there­in, be­cause of the vi­o­lence of all them that dwell therein.
  20. And the cit­ies that are in­hab­it­ed shall be laid waste, and the land shall be des­o­late; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  21. And the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  22. Son of man, what is that pro­verb that ye have in the land of Is­ra­el, say­ing, The days are pro­longed, and ev­ery vi­sion faileth?
  23. Tell them there­fore, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ I will make this pro­verb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a pro­verb in Is­ra­el; but say un­to them, The days are at hand, and the ef­fect of ev­ery vision.
  24. For there shall be no more (of) any vain vi­sion nor flat­ter­ing div­i­na­tion with­in the house of Israel.
  25. For I am the ⟨Lord⟩: I will speak and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more pro­longed: for in your days, O‍ ‍re­bel­lious house, will I say the word, and will per­form it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
  26. Again the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came to me, saying,
  27. Son of man, be­hold they of the house of Is­ra­el say, The vi­sion that he seeth is for ma­ny days to come, and he proph­e­si­eth of the times that are far off.
  28. Therefore say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; There shall none of my words be pro­longed any more, but the word which I have spo­ken shall be done, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍13 
  1. AND THE WORD OF the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, proph­e­sy against the proph­ets of Is­ra­el that proph­e­sy and say thou un­to them that proph­e­sy out of their own hearts, Hear ye the word of the ⟨Lord⟩;
  3. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Woe un­to the fool­ish proph­ets, that fol­low their own spir­it, and have seen nothing!
  4. O‍ ‍Is­ra­el, thy proph­ets are like the fox­es in the deserts.
  5. Ye have not gone up in­to the gaps, nei­ther made up the hedge for the house of Is­ra­el to stand in the bat­tle in the day of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  6. They have seen van­i­ty and ly­ing div­i­na­tion, say­ing,‌The ⟨Lord⟩ sa­ith:‌and the ⟨Lord⟩ hath not sent them: and they have made oth­ers to hope that they would con­firm the‍ ‍word.
  7. Have ye not seen a vain vi­sion, and have ye not spo­ken a ly­ing div­i­na­tion, where­as ye say,‌The ⟨Lord⟩ sa­ith it;‌al­be­it I have not spoken?
  8. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause ye have spo­ken van­i­ty, and seen lies, there­fore, be­hold I am against you, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  9. And mine hand shall be up­on the proph­ets that see van­i­ty, and that di­vine lies: they shall not be in the as­sem­bly of my peo­ple, nei­ther shall they be writ­ten in the writ­ing of the house of Is­ra­el, nei­ther shall they en­ter in­to the land of Is­ra­el; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  10. Because, even be­cause they have se­duced my peo­ple, say­ing, Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a‍ ‍wall, and, lo, oth­ers daubed it with un­tem­pered‍ ‍morter:(sic)
  11. Say un­to them which daub it with un­tem­pered mor­ter,(sic)‌that it shall fall: there shall be an over­flow­ing show­er; and ye, O‍ ‍great hail­stones, shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend‍ ‍it.
  12. Lo, when the wall is fall­en, shall it not be said un­to you, Where is the daub­ing where­with ye have daubed it?
  13. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will even rendit with a stormy wind in my fu­ry; and there shall be an over­flow­ing show­er in mine an­ger, and great hail­stones in my fu­ry to con­sume it.
  14. So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with un­tem­pered mor­ter,(sic)‌and bring it down to the ground, so that the foun­da­tion there­of shall be dis­cov­ered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be con­sumed in the midst there­of: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  15. Thus will I ac­com­plish my wrath up­on the wall, and up­on them that have daubed it with un­tem­pered mor­ter,(sic)‌and will say un­to you, The wall is no more, nei­ther they that daubed it;
  16. To wit, the proph­ets of Is­ra­el which proph­e­sy con­cern­ing Je­ru­sa­lem, and which see vi­sions of peace for her, and there is no peace, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
  17. Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daugh­ters of thy peo­ple, which proph­e­sy out of their own heart: and proph­e­sy thou against them,
  18. And say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Woe to the wom­en that sew (small) pil­lows to all arm­holes, and make ker­chiefs up­on the head of ev­ery stat­ure to hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my peo­ple, and will ye save the souls alive that come un­to you?
  19. And will ye pol­lute me among my peo­ple for hand­fuls of bar­ley and for piec­es of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save the souls alive that should not live, by your ly­ing to my peo­ple that hear your lies?
  20. Wherefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold I am against your (small) pil­lows, where­with ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.
  21. Your ker­chiefs al­so will I tear, and de­liv­er my peo­ple out of your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunt­ed; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  22. Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righ­teous sad, whom I have not made sad; and strength­ened the hand of the wick­ed, that he should not re­turn from his wick­ed way, by prom­is­ing him life:
  23. Therefore ye shall see no more van­i­ty, nor di­vine div­i­na­tions: for I will de­liv­er my peo­ple out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍14 
  1. THEN CAME CER­TAIN of the el­ders of Is­ra­el un­to me, and sat be­fore me.
  2. And the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  3. Son of man, these men have set up their idols in their heart, and put the stum­bling­block of their in­iq­ui­ty be­fore their face: should I be en­quired of at all by‍ ‍them?
  4. Therefore speak un­to them, and say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Ev­ery man of the house of Is­ra­el that set­teth up his idols in his heart, and put­teth the stum­bling­block of his in­iq­ui­ty be­fore his face, and com­eth to the proph­et: I the ⟨Lord⟩ will an­swer him that com­eth ac­cord­ing to the mul­ti­tude of his idols;
  5. That I may take the house of Is­ra­el in their own heart, be­cause they are all es­tranged from me through their idols.
  6. Therefore say un­to the house of Is­ra­el, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Re­pent, and turn your­selves from your idols; and turn away your fac­es from all your abominations.
  7. For ev­ery one of the house of Is­ra­el, or of the stran­ger that so­journ­eth in Is­ra­el, which sep­a­rat­eth him­self from me, and set­teth up his idols in his heart, and put­teth the stum­bling­block of his in­iq­ui­ty be­fore his face, and com­eth to the proph­et to en­quire of him con­cern­ing me; I the ⟨Lord⟩ will an­swer him by myself:
  8. And I will set my face against that man, and will make him a sign and a pro­verb, and I will cut him off from the midst of my peo­ple; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  9. And if the proph­et be de­ceived when he hath spo­ken a thing, I the ⟨Lord⟩ have de­ceived that proph­et, and I will stretch out my hand up­on him, and will de­stroy him from the midst of my peo­ple Israel.
  10. And they shall bear the pun­ish­ment of their iniquity: the pun­ish­ment of the proph­et shall be even as the pun­ish­ment of him that seek­eth un­to him;
  11. That the house of Is­ra­el may go no more astray from me, nei­ther be pol­lut­ed any more with all their trans­gres­sions; but that they may be my peo­ple, and I may be their ⟨God⟩, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  12. The word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came again to me, saying,
  13. Son of man, when the land sin­neth against me by tres­pass­ing griev­ous­ly, then will I stretch out mine hand up­on it, and will break the staff of the bread there­of, and will send fam­ine up­on it, and will cut off man and beast from it:
  14. Though these three men, No­ah, Dan­iel, and Job, were in it, they should de­liv­er but their own souls by‍ ‍their righ­teous­ness, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. If I cause noi­some beasts to pass through the land, and they spoil it, so that it be des­o­late, that no man may pass through be­cause of the beasts:
  16. Though these three men were in it, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, they shall de­liv­er nei­ther sons nor daugh­ters; they on­ly shall be de­liv­ered, but the land shall be‍ ‍des­o­late.
  17. Or if I bring a sword up­on that land, and say, Sword, go through the land; so that I cut off man and beast from it:
  18. Though these three men were in it, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, they shall de­liv­er nei­ther sons nor daugh­ters, but they on­ly shall be de­liv­ered themselves.
  19. Or if I send a pes­ti­lence in­to that land, and pour out my fu­ry up­on it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast:
  20. Though No­ah, Dan­iel, and Job, were in it, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, they shall de­liv­er nei­ther son nor daugh­ter; they shall but de­liv­er their own souls by their righ­teous­ness.
  21. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; How much more when I send my four sore judg­ments up­on Je­ru­sa­lem, the sword, and the fam­ine, and the noi­some beast, and the pes­ti­lence, to cut off from it man and beast?
  22. Yet, be­hold, there­in shall be left a rem­nant that shall be brought forth, both sons and daugh­ters: be­hold, they shall come forth un­to you, and ye shall see their way and their do­ings: and ye shall be com­fort­ed con­cern­ing the evil that I have brought up­on Je­ru­sa­lem, even con­cern­ing all that I have brought up­on it.
  23. And they shall com­fort you, when ye see their ways and their do­ings: and ye shall know that I have not done with­out cause all that I have done in it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍15 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a branch which is among the trees of the forest?
  3. Shall wood be tak­en there­of to do any work? or will men take a pin of it to hang any ves­sel thereon?
  4. Behold, it is cast in­to the fire for fu­el; the fire de­vour­eth both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it‍ ‍meet for any work?
  5. Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath de­voured it, and it is burned?
  6. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; As the vine tree among the trees of the for­est, which I have giv­en to the fire for fu­el, so will I give the in­hab­it­ants of Jerusalem.
  7. And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one fire, and an­oth­er fire shall de­vour them; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I set my face against them.
  8. And I will make the land des­o­late, be­cause they have com­mit­ted a tres­pass, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍16 
  1. AGAIN THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, cause Je­ru­sa­lem to know her abominations,
  3. And say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ un­to Je­ru­sa­lem; Thy birth and thy na­tiv­ity is of the land of Ca­naan; thy fa­ther was an Am‍′‍-‍or-‍ite, and thy moth­er an Hit‍′‍-‍tite.
  4. And as for thy na­tiv­ity, in the day thou wast born thy na­vel wast not cut, nei­ther wast thou washed in‍ ‍wa­ter to sup­ple thee; thou wast not salt­ed at all, nor swad­dled at all.
  5. None eye pi­tied thee, to do any of these un­to thee, to have com­pas­sion up­on thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the loth­ing(sic)‌of thy per­son, in the day that thou wast born.
  6. ⟨•And when I passed by thee, and saw thee pol­lut­ed in thine own (na­tal) blood, I said un­to thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said un­to thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.
  7. I have caused thee to mul­ti­ply as the bud of the field, and thou hast in­creased and wax­en great, and thou art come to ex­cel­lent or­na­ments:thy breasts are fash­ioned, and thine hair is grown, where­as (be­fore) thou wast na­ked and‍ ‍bare.
  8. Now when I passed by thee, and looked up­on thee, be­hold, thy time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and cov­ered thy na­ked­ness: yea, I sware un­to thee, and en­tered in­to a cov­en­ant with thee, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, and thou be­cam­est mine.
  9. Then I washed thee with wa­ter; yea, I th(o)r­ough­ly washed away thy blood from thee, and I anoint­ed thee with oil.
  10. I clothed thee al­so with‍ (embroi­dered work, and shod thee with badg­ers, skin and I gird­ed thee about with fine lin­en, and I cov­ered thee with silk.
  11. I decked thee al­so with or­na­ments, and I put brace­lets up­on thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.
  12. And I put a jew­el on thy fore­head, and ear­rings in thine ears, and a beau­ti­ful crown up­on thine head.
  13. Thus wast thou decked with gold and sil­ver; and thy rai­ment was of fine lin­en, and silk, and (embroi­dered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and hon­ey, and oil: and thou was ex­ceed­ing beau­ti­ful, and thou didst pros­per in­to a kingdom.
  14. And thy re­nown went forth among the heath­en for thy beau­ty: for it was per­fect through my come­li­ness which I had put up­on thee, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.•⟩
  15. But thou didst trust in thine own beau­ty, and play­edst the har­lot be­cause of thy re­nown, and pour­edst out thy for­ni­ca­tions on ev­ery one that passed by; his it was.
  16. And of thy gar­ments thou didst take, and deck­edst thy high plac­es with di­vers(e) col­ours, and play­edst the har­lot there­up­on: the like things shall not come, nei­ther shall it be so.
  17. Thou hast al­so tak­en thy fair jew­els of my gold and of my sil­ver, which I had giv­en thee, and mad­est to thy­self im­ag­es of men, and didst com­mit whore­dom with them,
  18. And took­est thy (em)­broi­dered gar­ments, and cov­eredst them: and thou hast set mine oil and mine in­cense be­fore them.
  19. My meat al­so which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and hon­ey, where­with I fed thee, thou hast even set it be­fore them for a sweet sa­vour: and thus it was, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
  20. Moreover thou hast tak­en thy sons and thy daugh­ters, whom thou hast borne un­to me, and these hast thou sac­ri­ficed un­to them to be de­voured. Is this of thy whore­doms a small matter,
  21. That thou hast slain my chil­dren, and (al­so) de­liv­ered them to cause them to pass through the fire for them?
  22. And in all thine abom­i­na­tions and thy whore­doms thou hast not re­mem­bered the days of thy youth, when thou was na­ked and bare,and wast pol­lut­ed in thy (na­tal)‍ ‍blood.
  23. And it came to pass af­ter all thy wick­ed­ness, (woe, woe un­to thee! sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩;)
  24. That thou hast al­so built un­to thee an em­i­nent place, and hast made thee an high place in ev­ery street.
  25. Thou hast built thy high place at‍ ‍ev­ery head of the way, and hast made thy beau­ty to be ab­horred, and hast opened thy feet to ev­ery one that passed by, and mul­ti­plied thy whoredoms.
  26. Thou hast al­so com­mit­ted for­ni­ca­tion with the Egyp­tians thy neigh­bours, great of flesh; and hast in­creased thy whore­doms, to pro­voke me to anger,
  27. Behold, there­fore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and have di­min­ished thine or­di­na­ry food, and de­liv­ered thee un­to the will of them that hate thee, the daugh­ters of the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines, which are ashamed of thy lewway.
  28. Thou hast played the whore al­so with the As­syr­i­ans, be­cause thou wast un­sa­tia­ble; yea, thou hast played the har­lot with them, and yet could­edst not be safisfied.
  29. Thou hast more­over mul­ti­plied thy for­ni­ca­tion in the land of Ca­naan un­to Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍a; and yet thou wast not satisfied.
  30. How weak is thine heart, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, see­ing thou do­est all these things, the work of an im­pe­ri­ous whor­ish woman;
  31. In that thou build­est thine em­i­nent place, in the head of ev­ery way, and mak­est thine high place in ev­ery street; and hast not been as an har­lot, in that thou scorn­est hire;
  32. But as a wife that com­mit­teth adul­tery, which tak­eth stran­gers in­stead of her husband!
  33. They give gifts to all whores: but thou giv­est thy gifts to all thy lov­ers, and hir­est them, that they may come un­to thee on ev­ery side for thy whoredom.
  34. And the con­tra­ry is in thee from oth­er wom­en in thy whore­doms, where­as none fol­low­eth thee to com­mit whore­doms: and in that thou giv­est a re­ward, and no re­ward is giv­en un­to thee, there­fore thou art contrary.
  35. Wherefore, O‍ ‍har­lot, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩:
  36. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thy fil­thi­ness was poured out, and thy na­ked­ness dis­cov­ered through thy whore­doms with thy lov­ers, and with all the idols of thy abom­i­na­tions, and by the blood of thy chil­dren, which thou didst give un­to them:
  37. Behold, there­fore I will gath­er all thy lov­ers, with whom thou hast tak­en pleas­ure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that thou hast hat­ed; I will even gath­er them round about against thee, and will dis­cov­er thy na­ked­ness un­to them, that they may see all thy nakedness.
  38. And I will judge thee, as wom­en that break wed­lock and shed blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fu­ry and jealousy.
  39. And I will al­so give thee un­to their hand, and they shall throw down thine em­i­nent place, and shall break down thy high plac­es: they shall strip thee al­so of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jew­els, and leave thee na­ked and bare.
  40. They shall al­so bring up a com­pa­ny against thee, and they shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.
  41. And they shall burn thine hous­es with fire, and ex­e­cute judg­ments up­on thee in the sight of ma­ny wom­en: and I will cause thee to cease from play­ing the har­lot, and thou al­so shalt give no hire any more.
  42. So will I make my fu­ry to­ward thee to rest, and my jeal­ousy shall de­part from thee, and I will be qui­et, and will be no more angry.
  43. Because thou hast not re­mem­bered the days of thy youth, but hast fret­ted me in all these things; be­hold, there­fore I al­so will rec­om­pense thy way up­on thine head, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩: and thou shalt not com­mit this lewd­ness above all thine (oth­er)‍ ‍abominations.
  44. Behold ev­ery one that us­eth pro­verbs shall use this pro­verb against thee, say­ing, As is the moth­er, so is her daughter.
  45. Thou art thy moth­ers daugh­ter, that loth­eth(sic)‌her hus­band and her chil­dren; and thou art the sis­ter of thy sis­ters, which loth­ed(sic)‌their hus­bands and their chil­dren: your moth­er was an Hit‍′‍-‍tite, and your fa­ther an Am‍′‍-‍or-‍ite.
  46. And thine el­der sis­ter is Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a, she and her daugh­ters that dwell at thy left hand: and thy youn­ger sis­ter, that dwell­eth at thy right hand, is Sod­om and her daughters.
  47. Yet hast thou not walked af­ter their ways, nor done af­ter their abom­i­na­tions: but, as if that were a‍ ‍very lit­tle thing, thou wast cor­rupt­ed more than they in all thy ways.
  48. As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, Sod­om thy sis­ter hath not done, she nor her daugh­ters, as thou hast done, thou and thy‍ ‍daughters.
  49. Behold, this was the in­iq­ui­ty of thy sis­ter (in the sin of)‍ ‍Sod­om, pride, ful­ness of bread, and abun­dance of idle­ness was in her and in her daugh­ters, nei­ther did she strength­en the hand of the poor and needy.
  50. And they were haugh­ty, and com­mit­ted abom­i­na­tion be­fore me: there­fore I took them away as I saw‍ ‍good.
  51. Neither hath Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a com­mit­ted half of thy sins; but thou hast mul­ti­plied thine abom­i­na­tions more than they, and hast jus­ti­fied thy sis­ters in‍ ‍(com­par­i­son to)‍ ‍all thine abom­i­na­tions which thou hast done.
  52. Thou al­so, which hast judged thy sis­ters, bear thine own shame for thy sins, that thou hast com­mit­ted more abom­i­na­ble (sins) than they: they are more righ­teous than thou: yea, be thou con­found­ed al­so, and bear thy shame, in that thou hast jus­ti­fied thy sisters‍(’ sins in‍ ‍comparison). (See: Genesis 19:1-‍29)
  53. When I shall bring again their cap­tiv­ity, the cap­tiv­ity of Sod­om and her daugh­ters, and the cap­tiv­ity of Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a and her daugh­ters, then will I bring again the cap­tiv­ity of thy cap­tives in the midst of them:
  54. That thou may­est bear thine own shame, and may­est be con­found­ed in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a com­fort un­to them (by great­er de­grees of sin).
  55. When thy sis­ters, Sod­om and her daugh­ters, shall re­turn to their form­er es­tate, and Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a and her daugh­ters shall re­turn to their form­er es­tate, then thou and thy daugh­ters shall re­turn to your form­er estate.
  56. For thy sis­ter Sod­om was not men­tioned by thy mouth in the day of thy pride,
  57. Before thy wick­ed­ness was dis­cov­ered, as at the time of thyre­proach of the daugh­ters of Syr­ia, and all that are round about her, the daugh­ters of the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines, which de­spise thee round about.
  58. Thou hast borne thy lewd­ness and thine abom­i­na­tions, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  59. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will even deal with thee as thou hast done, which hast de­spised the oath in break­ing the covenant.
  60. Nevertheless I will re­mem­ber my cov­en­ant with thee in the days of thy youth, and I will es­tab­lish un­to thee an ever­last­ing covenant.
  61. Then thou shalt re­mem­ber thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou shalt re­ceive thy sis­ters, thine el­der and thy youn­ger: and I will give them un­to thee for daugh­ters, but not by thy‍ ‍covenant.
  62. And I will es­tab­lish my cov­en­ant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩;
  63. That thou may­est re­mem­ber, and be con­found­ed, and nev­er open thy mouth any more be­cause of thy shame, when I‍ ‍am pac­i­fied to­ward thee for all that thou hast done, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍17 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, put forth a rid­dle, and speak a par­a­ble un­to the house of Israel;
  3. And say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; A great ea­gle with great wings, long­winged, full of feath­ers, which had divers‍(e) col­ours, came un­to Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non, and took the high­est branch of the cedar:
  4. He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and car­ried it in­to a land of traf­fick; he set it in a city of merchants.
  5. He took al­so of the seed of the land, and plant­ed it in a fruit­ful field; he placed it by great wa­ters, and set it as a wil­low tree.
  6. And it grew, and be­came a spread­ing vine of low stat­ure, whose branch­es turned to­ward him, and the roots there­of were un­der him: so it became a vine, and brought forth branch­es, and shot forth sprigs.
  7. There was al­so an­oth­er great ea­gle with great wings and ma­ny feath­ers: and, be­hold, this vine did bend her roots to­ward him, and shot forth her branch­es to­ward him, that he might wa­ter it by the fur­rows of her plantation.
  8. It was plant­ed in a good soil by great wa­ters, that it might bring forth branch­es, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a good­ly vine.
  9. Say thou, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Shall it pros­per? shall he not pull up the roots there­of, and cut off the fruit there­of, that it with­er? it  shall with­er in all the leaves of her spring, even with­out great pow­er or ma­ny peo­ple to pluck it up by the roots thereof.
  10. Yea, be­hold, be­ing plant­ed, shall it pros­per? shall it not ut­ter­ly with­er, when the east wind touch­eth it? it shall with­er in the fur­rows where it grew.
  11. Moreover the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  12. Say now to the re­bel­lious house, Know ye not what these things mean? tell them, Be­hold, the king of Bab­y­lon is come to Je­ru­sa­lem, and hath tak­en the king there­of, and the princ­es there­of, and led them with him to Babylon;
  13. And hath tak­en the kings seed, and made a cov­en­ant with him, and hath tak­en an oath of him: he hath al­so tak­en the migh­ty of the land:
  14. That the king­dom might be base, that it might not lift it­self up,but that by keep­ing of his cov­en­ant it might (still)‍ ‍stand.
  15. But he re­belled against him in send­ing his am­bas­sa­dors in­to Egypt, that they might give him hors­es and much peo­ple. Shall he pros­per? shall he es­cape that do­eth such things? or shall he break the cov­en­ant, and be delivered?
  16. As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, sure­ly in the place where the king dwell­eth that made him king, whose oath he de­spised, and whose cov­en­ant he brake, even with him in the midst of Bab­y­lon he shall die.
  17. Neither shall Pharaoh with his migh­ty ar­my and great com­pa­ny make for him in the war, by cast­ing up mounts, and build­ing forts, to cut off ma­ny persons:
  18. Seeing he de­spised the oath by break­ing the cov­en­ant, when, lo, he had giv­en his hand, and hath done all these things, he shall not escape.
  19. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; As I live, sure­ly mine oath that he hath de­spised, and my cov­en­ant that he hath bro­ken, even it will I rec­om­pense up­on his own head.
  20. And I will spread my net up­on him, and he shall be tak­en in my snare, and I will bring him to Bab­y­lon, and will plead with him there for his tres­pass that he hath tres­passed against me.
  21. And all his fu­gi­tives with all his bands shall fall by the sword, and they that re­main shall be scat­tered to­ward all winds: and ye shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
  22. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will al­so take of the high­est branch of the high ce­dar, and will setit; I will crop off from the top of his young twigs a ten­der one, and will plant it up­on an high moun­tain and‍ ‍eminent:
  23. In the moun­tain of the height of Is­ra­el will I plant it: and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a good­ly ce­dar: and un­der it shall dwell all fowl of ev­ery wing; in the shad­ow of the branch­es there­of shall they dwell.
  24. And all the trees of the field shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have brought down the high tree, have ex­alt­ed the low tree, have dried up the green tree, and have made the dry tree to flour­ish: I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken and have done it.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍18 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me again, saying,
  2. What mean ye, that ye use this pro­verb con­cern­ing the land of Is­ra­el, say­ing, the fa­thers have eat­en sour grapes, and the chil­drens teeth are set on edge?
  3. As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, ye shall not have oc­ca­sion any more to use this pro­verb in Israel.
  4. Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the fa­ther, so al­so the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sin­neth, it shall die.
  5. But if a man be just, and do that which is law­ful and right,
  6. And hath not eat­en up­on the moun­tains, nei­ther hath lift­ed up his eyes to the idols of the house of Is­ra­el, nei­ther hath de­filed his neigh­bours wife, nei­ther hath come near to a men­stru­ous woman,
  7. And hath not op­pressed any, but hath re­stored to the debt­or his pledge, hath spoiled none by vi­o­lence, hath given his bread to the hun­gry, and hath cov­ered the na­ked with a garment;
  8. He that hath not giv­en forth up­on usu­ry, nei­ther hath tak­en any in­crease, that hath with­drawn his hand from iniquity, hath ex­e­cut­ed true judg­ment be­tween man and man,
  9. Hath walked in my stat­utes, and hath kept my judg­ments, to deal tru­ly; he is just, he shall sure­ly live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
  10. If he be­get a son that is a rob­ber, a shed­der of blood, and that do­eth the like to any of these things,
  11. And that do­eth not any of those duties, but even hath eat­en up­on the moun­tains, and de­filed his neigh­bours wife,
  12. Hath op­pressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by vi­o­lence, hath not restored the pledge, and hath lift­ed up his eyes to the idols, hath com­mit­ted abomination,
  13. Hath giv­en forth up­on usu­ry, and hath tak­en in­crease: shall he then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abom­i­na­tions; he shall sure­ly die; his blood shall be up­on him.
  14. Now, lo, if he be­get a son, that seeth all his fa­thers sins which he hath done, and con­sid­er­eth, and do­eth not such like,
  15. That hath not eat­en up­on the moun­tains, nei­ther hath lift­ed up his eyes to the idols of the house of Is­ra­el, hath not de­filed his neigh­bours wife,
  16. Neither hath op­pressed any, hath not with­hold­en the pledge, nei­ther hath spoiled by vi­o­lence, but hath giv­en his bread to the hun­gry, and hath cov­ered the na­ked with a garment,
  17. That hath tak­en off his hand from the poor, that hath not re­ceived usu­ry nor in­crease, hath ex­e­cuted my judg­ments, hath walked in my stat­utes; he shall not die for the in­iq­ui­ty of his fa­ther, he shall sure­ly live.
  18. As for his fa­ther, be­cause he cru­el­ly op­pressed,spoiled his broth­er by vi­o­lence, and did that which is not good among his peo­ple, lo, even he shall die in his‍ ‍iniquity.
  19. Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the in­iq­ui­ty of the fa­ther? When the son hath done that which is law­ful and right, and hath kept all my stat­utes, and hath done them, he shall sure­ly live.
  20. The soul that sin­neth, it shall die. The son shall not bear the in­iq­ui­ty of the fa­ther, nei­ther shall the fa­ther bear the in­iq­ui­ty of the son: the righ­teous­ness of the righ­teous shall be up­on him, and the wick­ed­ness of the wick­ed shall be up­on him.
  21. But if the wick­ed will turn from all his sins that he hath com­mit­ted, and keep all my stat­utes, and do that which is law­ful and right, he shall sure­ly live, he shall not die.
  22. All his trans­gres­sions that he hath com­mit­ted, they shall not be men­tioned un­to him: in his righ­teous­ness that he hath done he shall live.
  23. Have I any pleas­ure at all that the wick­ed should die? sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; and not that he should re­turn from his ways, and live?
  24. But when the righ­teous turn­eth away from his righ­teous­ness, and com­mit­teth iniquity,and do­eth ac­cord­ing to all the abom­i­na­tions that the wick­ed man do­eth, shall he live? All his righ­teous­ness that he hath done shall not be men­tioned: in his tres­pass that he hath tres­passed, and in his sin that he hath sinned, in them shall he die.
  25. Yet ye say, The way of the ⟨Lord⟩ is not equal. Hear now, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el; Is not my wayequal? are not your ways‍ ‍unequal?
  26. When a righ­teousman turn­eth away from his righ­teous­ness, and com­mit­teth iniquity, and di­eth in them; for his in­iq­ui­ty that he hath done shall he die.
  27. Again, when the wick­ed man turn­eth away from his wick­ed­ness that he hath com­mit­ted, and do­eth that which is law­ful and right, he shall save his soul alive.
  28. Because he con­sid­er­eth, and turn­eth away from all his trans­gres­sions that he hath com­mit­ted, he shall sure­ly live, he shall not die.
  29. Yet sa­ith the house of Is­ra­el, The way of the ⟨Lord⟩ is not equal. O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el, are not my ways equal? are not your ways‍ ‍unequal?
  30. Therefore I will judge you, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el, ev­ery one ac­cord­ing to his ways, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩. Re­pent, and turn your­selves from all your trans­gres­sions; so‍ ‍in­iq­ui­ty shall not be your ruin.
  31. Cast away from you all your trans­gres­sions, where­by ye have trans­gressed; and make you a new heart and a new spir­it: for why will ye die, O‍ ‍house of Israel?
  32. For I have no pleas­ure in the death of him that di­eth, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; where­fore turn your­selves, and live ye.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍19 
  1. MOREOVER TAKE THOU up a lam­en­ta­tion for the princ­es of Israel,
  2. And say, ⟨•What is thy moth­er? A li­on­ess: she lay down among li­ons, she nour­ished her whelps among young lions.
  3. And she brought up one of her whelps: it be­came a young li­on, and it learned to catch prey; it de­voured men.
  4. The na­tions al­so heard of him; he was tak­en in their pit, and they brought him with chains un­to the land of Egypt.
  5. Now when she saw that she had wait­ed, and her hope was lost, then she took an­oth­er of her whelps,and made him a young lion.
  6. And he went up and down among the li­ons, he be­came a young li­on, and learned to catch the prey, and de­voured men.
  7. And he knew their des­o­late pal­ac­es, and he laid waste their cit­ies; and the land was des­o­late, and the ful­ness there­of, by the noise of his roaring.
  8. Then the na­tions set against him on ev­ery side from the prov­inc­es, and spread their net over him: he was tak­en in their pit.
  9. And they put him in ward in chains, and brought him to the king of Bab­y­lon: they brought him in­to holds, that his voice should no more be heard up­on the moun­tains of Israel.
  10. Thy moth­er is like a vine in thy blood, plant­ed by the wa­ters: she was fruit­ful and full of branch­es by rea­son of ma­ny waters.
  11. And she had strong rods for the scep­tres of them that bare rule, and her stat­ure was ex­alt­ed among the thick branch­es, and she ap­peared in her height with the mul­ti­tude of her branches.
  12. But she was plucked up in fu­ry, she was cast down to the ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were bro­ken and with­ered; the fire con­sumed them.
  13. And now she is plant­ed in the wil­der­ness, in a dry and thirsty ground.
  14. And fire is gone out of a rod of her branch­es, which hath de­voured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod to be a scep­tre to rule.•⟩ This is‍ ‍a‍ ‍lam­en­ta­tion, and shall be for a lamentation.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍20 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the sev­enth year, in the fifth month, the tenth day of the month, that cer­tain of the el­ders of Is­ra­el came to en­quire of the ⟨Lord⟩, and sat be­fore me.
  2. Then came the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ un­to me, saying,
  3. Son of man, speak un­to the el­ders of Is­ra­el, and say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Are ye come to en­quire of me? As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, I will not be en­quired of by you.
  4. Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to know the abom­i­na­tions of their fathers:
  5. And say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; In the day when I chose Is­ra­el, and lift­ed up mine hand un­to the house of Ja­cob, and made my­self known un­to them in the land of Egypt, when I lift­ed up mine hand un­to them, say­ing I am the your ⟨God⟩.
  6. In the day that I lift­ed up mine hand un­to them, to bring them forth of the land of Egypt in­to a land that I had es­pied for them, flow­ing with milk and hon­ey, which is the glo­ry of all lands.
  7. Then said I un­to them, Cast ye away ev­ery man the abom­i­na­tions of his eyes, and de­file not your­selves with the idols of Egypt: I am the ⟨Lord⟩ your ⟨God⟩.
  8. But they re­belled against me, and would not heark­en un­to me: they did not ev­ery man cast away the abom­i­na­tions of their eyes, nei­ther did they for­sake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fu­ry up­on them, to ac­com­plish my an­ger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.
  9. But I wrought for my names sake, that it should not be pol­lut­ed be­fore the heath­en, among whom they were, in whose sight I made my­self known un­to them, in bring­ing them forth out of the land of Egypt.
  10. Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and brought them in­to the wilderness.
  11. And I gave them my stat­utes, and shewed them my judg­ments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them.
  12. Moreover al­so I gave them my sab­baths, to be a sign be­tween me and them, that they might know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ that sanc­ti­fy them.
  13. But the house of Is­ra­el re­belled against me in the wil­der­ness: they walked not in my stat­utes, and they de­spised my judg­ments, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; and my sab­baths they great­ly pol­lut­ed: then I said, I would pour out my fu­ry up­on them in the wil­der­ness to con­sume them.
  14. But I wrought for my names sake, that it should not be pol­lut­ed be­fore the heath­en, in whose sight I brought them out.
  15. Yet al­so I‍ ‍lift­ed up my hand un­to them in the wil­der­ness, that I would not bring them in­to the land which I had giv­en them, flow­ing with milk and hon­ey, which is the glo­ry of all lands;
  16. Because they de­spised my judg­ments, and walked not in my stat­utes, but pol­lut­ed my sab­baths: for their heart went af­ter their idols.
  17. Nevertheless mine eye spared them from de­stroy­ing them, nei­ther did I make an end of them in the wilderness.
  18. But I said un­to their chil­dren in the wil­der­ness, Walk ye not in the stat­utes of your fa­thers, nei­ther ob­serve their judg­ments, nor de­file your­selves with their idols:
  19. I am the ⟨Lord⟩ your ⟨God⟩; walk in my stat­utes, and keep my judg­ments, and do them;
  20. And hal­low my sab­baths; and they shall be a sign be­tween me and you, that ye may know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ your ⟨God⟩.
  21. Notwithstanding the chil­dren re­belled against me: they walked not in my stat­utes, nei­ther kept my judg­ments to do them, which if a man do, he shall even live in them; they pol­lut­ed my sab­baths: then I said, I would pour out my fu­ry up­on them, to ac­com­plish my an­ger against them in the wilderness.
  22. Nevertheless I with­drew mine hand, and wrought for my names sake, that it should not be pol­lut­ed in the sight of the heath­en, in whose sight I brought them forth.
  23. I lift­ed up mine hand un­to them al­so in the wil­der­ness, that I would scat­ter them among the heath­en, and dis­perse them through the countries;
  24. Because they had not ex­e­cut­ed my judg­ments, but had de­spised my stat­utes, and had pol­lut­ed my sab­baths, and their eyes were af­ter their fa­thers’‍ ‍idols.
  25. Wherefore I gave them al­so stat­utes that were not good, and judg­ments where­by they should not live;
  26. And I pol­lut­ed them in their own gifts, in that they caused to pass through the fire all that open­eth the womb, that I might make them des­o­late, to the end that they might know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  27. Therefore, son of man, speak un­to the house of Is­ra­el, and say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Yet in this your fa­thers have blas­phemed me, in that they have com­mit­ted a tres­pass against me.
  28. For when I had brought them in­to the land, for the which I‍ ‍lift­ed up mine hand to give it to them, then they saw ev­ery high hill, and all the thick trees, and they of­fered there their sac­ri­fic­es, and there they pre­sent­ed the prov­o­ca­tion of their of­fer­ing: there al­so they made their sweet sa­vour, and poured out there their drink offerings.
  29. Then said I un­to them, What is the high place where­un­to ye go? And the name there­of is called Ba‍′‍-‍mah un­to this day.
  30. Wherefore say un­to the house of Is­ra­el, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Are ye pol­lut­ed af­ter the man­ner of your fa­thers? and com­mit ye whore­dom af­ter their abominations?
  31. For when ye of­fer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass through the fire, ye pol­lute your­selves with all your idols, even un­to this day: and shall I be en­quired of by you, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el? As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, I will not be en­quired of by you.
  32. And that which com­eth in­to your mind shall not be at all, that ye say, We will be as the heath­en, as the fam­i­lies of the coun­tries, to serve wood and stone.
  33. As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, sure­ly with a migh­ty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fu­ry poured out, will I rule over you:
  34. And I will bring you out from the peo­ple, and will gath­er you out of the coun­tries where­in ye are scat­tered, with a migh­ty hand, and with a stretched out arm, and with fu­ry poured out.
  35. And I will bring you in­to the wil­der­ness of the peo­ple, and there will I plead with you face to face.
  36. Like as I plead­ed with your fa­thers in the wil­der­ness of the land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩.
  37. And I will cause you to pass un­der the rod, and I will bring you in­to the bond of the covenant:
  38. And I will purge out from among you the reb­els, and them that trans­gress against me: I will bring them forth out of the coun­try where they so­journ, and they shall not en­ter in­to the land of Is­ra­el: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  39. As for you, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el, thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Go ye, serve ye ev­ery one his idols, and here­af­ter al­so, if ye will not heark­en un­to me: but pol­lute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.
  40. For in mine holy moun­tain, in the moun­tain of the height of Is­ra­el, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, there shall all the house of Is­ra­el, all of them in the land, serve me: there will I ac­cept them, and there will I re­quire your of­fer­ings, and the first­fruits of your obla­tions, with all your holy things.
  41. I will ac­cept you with your sweet sa­vour, when I bring you out from the peo­ple, and gath­er you out of the coun­tries where­in ye have been scat­tered; and I will be sanc­ti­fied in you be­fore the‍ ‍heathen.
  42. And ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I shall bring you in­to the land of Is­ra­el, in­to the coun­try for the which I‍ ‍lift­ed up mine hand to give it to your fathers.
  43. And there shall ye re­mem­ber your ways, and all your do­ings, where­in ye have been de­filed; and ye shall lothe(sic)‌your­selves in your own sight for all your evils that ye have committed.
  44. And ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I have wrought with you for my names sake, not ac­cord­ing to your wick­ed ways, nor ac­cord­ing to your cor­rupt do­ings, O‍ ‍ye house of Is­ra­el, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  45. Moreover the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  46. Son of man, set thy face to­ward the south, and drop thy word to­ward the south, and proph­e­sy against the for­est of the south field;
  47. And say to the for­est of the south, Hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩; Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will kin­dle a fire in thee, and it shall de­vour ev­ery green tree in thee, and ev­ery dry tree: the flam­ing flame shall not be quenched, and all fac­es from the south to the north shall be burned therein.
  48. And all flesh shall see that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have kin­dled it: it shall not be quenched.
  49. Then‍ ‍said‍ ‍I,‍ ‍Ah‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩! they say of me, Doth he not speak parables?
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍21 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face to­ward Je­ru­sa­lem, and drop thy word to­ward the holy plac­es, and proph­e­sy against the land of Israel,
  3. And say to the land of Is­ra­el, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from thee the the righ­teous and the wick­ed.
  4. Seeing then that I will cut off from thee the righ­teous and the wick­ed, there­fore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:
  5. That all flesh may know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not re­turn any more.
  6. Sigh there­fore, thou son of man, with the break­ing of thy loins; and with bit­ter­ness sigh be­fore their eyes.
  7. And it shall be, when they say un­to thee, Where­fore sigh­est thou? that thou shalt an­swer, For the tid­ings; be­cause it com­eth: and ev­ery heart shall melt, and all hands shall be fee­ble, and ev­ery spir­it shall faint, and all knees shall be weak as wa­ter: be­hold, it com­eth, and shall be brought to pass, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  8. Again the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  9. Son of man, proph­e­sy, and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and al­so furbished:
  10. It is sharp­ened to make a sore slaugh­ter; it is furbished that it may glit­ter: should we then make mirth? it con­temn­eth the rod of my son, as ev­ery tree.
  11. And he hath giv­en it to be furbished, that it may be han­dled: this sword is sharp­ened, and it is‍ ‍furbished, to give it in­to the hand of the slayer.
  12. Cry and howl, son of man: for it shall be up­on my peo­ple, it shall be up­on all the princ­es of Is­ra­el: ter­rors by rea­son of the sword shall be up­on my peo­ple: smite there­fore up­on thy thigh.
  13. Because it is a trial, and what if the swordcon­temn even the rod? it shall be no more, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  14. Thou there­fore, son of man, proph­e­sy, and smite thine hands to­geth­er, and let the sword be dou­bled the third time, the sword of the slain: it is the sword of the great men that are slain, which en­ter­eth in­to their privy‍ ‍chambers.
  15. I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that their heart may faint, and their ru­ins be mul­ti­plied: ah! it is made bright, it is wrap­ped up for the slaughter.
  16. Go thee one way or oth­er, ei­ther on the right hand, or on the left, whith­er­so­ever thy face is set.
  17. I will al­so smite mine hands to­geth­er, and I will cause my fu­ry to rest: I the ⟨Lord⟩ have said it.
  18. The word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me again, saying,
  19. Also, thou son of man, ap­point thee two ways, that the sword of the king of Bab­y­lon may come: both twain shall come forth out of one land: and choose thou a place, choose it at the head of the way to the city.
  20. Appoint a‍ ‍way, that the sword may come to Rab‍′‍-‍bath of the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites, and to Ju­dah in‍ ‍Je­ru­sa­lem the defenced.
  21. For the king of Bab­y­lon stood at the part­ing of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use div­i­na­tion: he made his ar­rows bright, he con­sult­ed with im­ag­es, he looked in the liver.
  22. At his right hand was the div­i­na­tion for Je­ru­sa­lem, to ap­point cap­tains, to open the mouth in the slaugh­ter, to lift up the voice with shout­ing, to ap­point bat­ter­ing rams against the gates, to cast a‍ ‍mount,and to build a fort.
  23. And it shall be un­to them as a false div­i­na­tion in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to re­mem­brance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
  24. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause ye have made your in­iq­ui­ty to be re­mem­bered, in that your trans­gres­sions are dis­cov­ered, so that in all your do­ings your sins do ap­pear; be­cause, I‍ ‍say, that ye are come to re­mem­brance, ye shall be tak­en with the hand.
  25. And thou, pro­fane wick­ed prince of Is­ra­el, whose day is come, when in­iq­ui­tyshall have an end,
  26. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Re­move the di­a­dem, and take off the crown: this shall not be the same: ex­alt him that is low, and abase him that is high.
  27. I will over­turn, over­turn, over­turn, it: and it shall be no more, un­til he come whose right it is; and I will give it‍ ‍(to)‍ ‍him.
  28. And thou, son of man, proph­e­sy and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ con­cern­ing the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites, and con­cern­ing their re­proach; even say thou, The sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaugh­ter it isfur­bished, to con­sume be­cause of the glittering:
  29. Whiles they see van­i­ty un­to thee, whiles they di­vine a lie un­to thee, to bring thee up­on the necks of them that are slain, of the wick­ed, whose day is come, when their in­iq­ui­tyshall have an end.
  30. Shall I cause it to re­turn in­to his sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast cre­at­ed, in the land of thy nativity.
  31. And I will pour out mine in­dig­na­tion up­on thee, I will blow against thee in the fire of my wrath, and de­liv­er thee in­to the hand of‍ ‍brut­ish men, and skil­ful to destroy.
  32. Thou shalt be for fu­el to the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt be no more re­mem­bered: for I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍22 
  1. MOREOVER THE WORD of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations.
  3. Then say thou, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩, The city shed­deth blood in the midst of it, that her time may come, and mak­eth idols against her­self to de­file herself.
  4. Thou art be­come guil­ty in‍ ‍thy blood that thou hast shed; and hast de­filed thy­self in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and art come even un­to thy years: there­fore have I made thee a re­proach un­to the heath­en, and a mock­ing to all countries.
  5. Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee, which artin­fa­mousand much‍ ‍vexed.
  6. Behold, the princ­es of Is­ra­el, ev­ery one were in thee to their pow­er to shed blood.
  7. In thee have they set light by fa­ther and moth­er: in the midst of thee have they dealt by op­pres­sion with the stran­ger: in thee have they vexed the fa­ther­less and the widow.
  8. Thou hast de­spised mine holy things, and hast pro­faned my sabbaths.
  9. In thee are men that car­ry tales to shed blood: and in thee they eat up­on the moun­tains: in the midst of thee they com­mit lewdness.
  10. In thee have they dis­cov­ered their fa­thers na­ked­ness: in thee have they hum­bled her that was set apart for pollution.
  11. And one hath com­mit­ted abom­i­na­tion with his neigh­bours wife; and an­oth­er hath lewd­ly de­filed his daugh­ter in law; and an­oth­er in thee hath hum­bled his sis­ter, his fa­thers daughter.
  12. In thee have they tak­en gifts to shed blood; thou hast tak­en usu­ry and in­crease, and thou hast greed­i­ly gained of thy neigh­bours by‍ ‍ex­tor­tion, and hast for­got­ten me, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  13. Behold, there­fore I have smit­ten mine hand at thy dis­hon­est gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of thee.
  14. Can thine heart en­dure, or can thy hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with thee? I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it, and will do it.
  15. And I will scat­ter thee among the heath­en, and dis­perse thee in the coun­tries, and will con­sume thy fil­thi­ness out of thee.
  16. And thou shalt take thine in­her­it­ance in thy­self in the sight of the heath­en, and thou shalt know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  17. And the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  18. Son of man, the house of Is­ra­el is to me be­come dross: all they arebrass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the fur­nace; they are even the dross of silver.
  19. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause ye are all be­come dross, be­hold, there­fore I will gath­er you in­to the midst of Jerusalem.
  20. As they gath­er sil­ver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin, in­to the midst of the fur­nace, to blow the fire up­on it, to melt it, so will I gath­er you in mine an­ger and in my fu­ry, and I will leave you there, and melt you.
  21. Yea, I will gath­er you, and blow up­on you in the fire of my wrath, and ye shall be melt­ed in the midst thereof.
  22. As sil­ver is melt­ed in the midst of the fur­nace, so shall ye be melt­ed in the midst there­of; and ye shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have poured out my fu­ry up­on you.
  23. And the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  24. Son of man, say un­to her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed, nor rained up­on in the day of indignation.
  25. There is a con­spir­a­cy of her proph­ets in the midst there­of, like a roar­ing li­on rav­en­ing the prey; they have de­voured souls; they have tak­en the treas­ure and pre­cious things; they have made her ma­ny wid­ows in the midst thereof.
  26. Her priests have vi­o­lat­ed my law, and have pro­faned mine holy things: they have put no dif­fer­ence be­tween the holy and (the) pro­fane, nei­ther have they shewed dif­fer­ence be­tween the un­clean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my sab­baths, and I am pro­faned among them.
  27. Her princ­es in the midst there­of are like wolves rav­en­ing the prey, to shed blood, and to de­stroy souls, to get dis­hon­est gain.
  28. And her proph­ets have daubed them with un­tem­pered mor­ter,(sic)‌see­ing van­i­ty, and di­vin­ing lies un­to them, say­ing, Thus sa­ith the Lord God,’”when the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩ hath not spoken.
  29. The peo­ple of the land have used op­pres­sion, and ex­er­cised rob­bery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have op­pressed the stran­ger wrongfully.
  30. And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge (be­tween my­self and them), and stand in the gap be­fore me for the land, that I should not de­stroy it: but I found none.
  31. Therefore have I poured out mine in­dig­na­tion up­on them; I have con­sumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I rec­om­pensed up­on their heads, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍23 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, there were two wom­en, the daugh­ters of one mother:
  3. And they com­mit­ted whore­doms in Egypt; they com­mit­ted whore­doms in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.
  4. And the names of them were A-‍ho‍′‍-‍lah the el­der, and A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah her sis­ter; and they were mine, and they bare sons and daugh­ters. Thus were their names; Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a is‍ ‍A-‍ho‍′‍-‍lah, and Je­ru­sa­lem (is)‍ ‍A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah.
  5. And A-‍ho‍′‍-‍lah played the har­lot when she was mine; and she dot­ed on her lov­ers, on the As­syr­i­ans her neighbours,
  6. Which were clothed with (roy­al) blue, cap­tains and rul­ers, all of them de­sir­a­ble young men, horse­men, rid­ing up­on horses.
  7. Thus she com­mit­ted her whore­doms with them, with all them that were the cho­sen men of As­syr­ia, and with all on whom she dot­ed: with all their idols she de­filed herself.
  8. Neither left she her whore­doms brought from Egypt: for in her youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her vir­gin­i­ty, and poured their whore­dom up­on her.
  9. Wherefore I have de­liv­ered her in­to the hand of her lov­ers, in­to the hand of the As­syr­i­ans, up­on whom she doted.
  10. These dis­cov­ered her na­ked­ness: they took her sons and her daugh­ters, and slew her with the sword: and she be­came fam­ous among wom­en; for they had ex­e­cut­ed judg­ment up­on her.
  11. And when her sis­ter A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah saw this, she was more cor­rupt in her in­or­di­nate love than she, and in her whore­doms more than her sis­ter in her whoredoms.
  12. She dot­ed upon the As­syr­i­ans her neigh­bours, cap­tains and rul­ers clothed most gor­geous­ly, horse­men rid­ing up­on hors­es, all of them de­sir­a­ble young men.
  13. Then I saw that she was de­filed, that they tookone‍ ‍way.
  14. And that she in­creased her whore­doms: for when she saw men pour­trayed‍(sic)‌with vermillion,
  15. Girded with gir­dles up­on their loins, ex­ceed­ing in dyed at­tire up­on their heads, all of them princ­es to look to, af­ter the man­ner of the Bab­y­lo­ni­ans of Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍a, the land of their nativity:
  16. And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she dot­ed up­on them, and sent mes­sen­gers un­to them in­to Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍a.
  17. And the Bab­y­lo­ni­ans came to her in­to the bed of love, and they de­filed her with their whore­dom, and she was pol­lut­ed with them, and her mind was ali­en­at­ed from her sister.
  18. So she dis­cov­ered her whore­doms, and dis­cov­ered her na­ked­ness: then my mind was ali­en­at­ed from her, like as my mind was ali­en­at­ed from her sister.
  19. Yet she mul­ti­plied her whore­doms, in call­ing to re­mem­brance the days of her youth, where­in she had played the har­lot in the land of Egypt.
  20. Foe she dot­ed up­on their par­a­mours, whose flesh is as the flesh of ass­es, and whose is­sue is like the is­sue of horses.
  21. Thus thou call­edst to re­mem­brance the lewd­ness of thy youth, in bruis­ing thy teats by the Egyp­tians for the paps of thy youth.
  22. Therefore, O‍ ‍A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah, thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will raise up thy lov­ers against thee, from whom thy mind is ali­en­at­ed, and I will bring them against thee on ev­ery side;
  23. The Bab­y­lo­ni­ans, and all the Chal-‍de‍′‍-‍ans, Pe‍′‍-‍kod, and Sho‍′‍-‍a, and Ko‍′‍-‍a, and all the As­syr­i­ans with them: all of them de­sir­a­ble young men, cap­tains and rul­ers, great lords and re­nowned, all of them rid­ing up­on horses.
  24. And they shall come against thee with char­i­ots, wag­ons, and wheels, and with an as­sem­bly of peo­ple, which shall set against thee buck­ler and shield and hel­met round about: and I will set judg­ment be­fore them, and they shall judge thee ac­cord­ing to their judgments.
  25. And I will set my jeal­ousy against thee, and they shall deal fu­ri­ous­ly with thee: they shall take away thy nose and thine ears; and thy rem­nant shall fall by the sword: they shall take thy sons and thy daugh­ters; and thy res­i­due shall be de­voured by the fire.
  26. They shall al­so strip thee out of thy clothes, and take away thy fair jewels.
  27. Thus will I make thy lewd­ness to cease from thee, and thy whore­dom brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt not lift up thine eyes un­to them, nor re­mem­ber Egypt any more.
  28. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will de­liv­er thee in­to the hand of them whom thou hat­est, in­to the hand of them from whom thy mind is alienated:
  29. And they shall deal with thee hate­ful­ly, and shall take away all thy la­bour, and shall leave thee na­ked and bare: and the na­ked­ness of thy whore­doms shall be dis­cov­ered, both thy lewd­ness and thy whoredoms.
  30. I will do these things un­to thee, be­cause thou hast gone a‍ ‍whor­ing af­ter the heath­en,and be­cause thou art pol­lut­ed with their idols.
  31. Thou hast walked in the way of thy sis­ter; there­fore will I give her cup in­to thine hand.
  32. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Thou shalt drink of thy sis­ters cup deep and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in de­ri­sion; it con­tain­eth much.
  33. Thou shalt be filled with drunk­en­ness and sor­row, with the cup of as­ton­ish­ment and des­o­la­tion, with the cup of thy sis­ter Sa-‍ma‍′‍-‍ri-‍a.
  34. Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out, and thou shalt break the sherds there­of, and pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spo­ken it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  35. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thou hast for­got­ten me, and cast me be­hind thy back, there­fore bear thou al­so thy lewd­ness and thy whoredoms.
  36. The ⟨Lord⟩ said more­over un­to me; Son of man, wilt thou judge A-‍ho‍′‍-‍lah and A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah? yea, de­clare un­to them their abominations;
  37. That they have com­mit­ted adul­tery, and blood is in their hands, and with their idols have they com­mit­ted adul­tery, and have al­so caused their sons, whom they bare un­to me, to pass for them through the fire, to de­vour them.
  38. More­over this they have done un­to me: they have de­filed my sanc­tu­ary in the same day and have pro­faned my‍ ‍sabbaths.
  39. For when they had slain their chil­dren to their idols, then they came the same day in­to my sanc­tu­ary to pro­fane it; and, lo, thus have they done in the midst of mine house.
  40. And fur­ther­more, that ye sent for men to come from far, un­to whom a mes­sen­ger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash thy­self, paint­edst thy eyes, and deck­edst thy­self with ornaments,
  41. And sat­est up­on a state­ly bed, and a ta­ble pre­pared be­fore it, where­up­on thou hast set mine in­cense and mine oil.
  42. And a voice of a mul­ti­tude be­ing at ease was with her: and with the men of the com­mon sortwere brought Sa-‍be‍′‍-‍ans from the wil­der­ness, which put brace­lets up­on their hands, and beau­ti­ful crowns up­on their heads.
  43. Then said I un­to her that was old in adul­ter­ies, Will they now com­mit whore­doms with her, and she with them?
  44. Yet they went in un­to her, as they go in un­to a‍ ‍wom­an that play­eth the har­lot: so‍ ‍went they in un­to A-‍ho‍′‍-‍lah and un­to A-‍hol‍′‍-‍i-‍bah, the lewd women.
  45. And the righ­teous men, they shall judge them af­ter the man­ner of adul­ter­ess­es, and af­ter the man­ner of wom­en that shed blood; be­cause they are adul­ter­ess­es, and blood is in their hands.
  46. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will bring up a com­pa­ny up­on them, and will give them to be re­moved and spoiled.
  47. And the com­pa­ny shall stone them with stones, and dis­patch them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daugh­ters, and burn up their hous­es with fire.
  48. Thus will I cause lewd­ness to cease out of the land, that all wom­en may be taught not to do af­ter your lewdness.
  49. And they shall rec­om­pense your lewd­ness up­on you, and ye shall bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍24 
  1. AGAIN IN THE NINTH year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, write the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Bab­y­lon set him­self against Je­ru­sa­lem this same day.
  3. And ut­ter a par­a­ble un­to the re­bel­lious house, and say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Set on a pot, set it on, and al­so pour wa­ter in­to it:
  4. Gather the piec­es there­of in­to it, even ev­ery good piece, the thigh, and the shoul­der; fill it with the choice bones.
  5. Take the choice of the flock, and burn al­so the bones un­der it, and make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein.
  6. Wherefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum is there­in, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall up­on it.
  7. For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it up­on the top of a rock; she poured it not up­on the ground, to cov­er it with dust;
  8. That it might cause fu­ry to come up to take ven­geance; I have set her blood up­on the top of a rock, that it should not be covered.
  9. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great.
  10. Heap on‍ ‍wood, kin­dle the fire, con­sume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned.
  11. Then set it emp­ty up­on the coals there­of, that the brass of it may be hot, and may burn, and that the fil­thi­ness of it may be mol­ten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed.
  12. She hath wear­ied her­self with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire.
  13. In thy fil­thi­ness is lewd­ness: be­cause I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy fil­thi­ness any more, till I have caused my fu­ry to rest up­on thee.
  14. I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it: it shall come to pass, and I will do it; I will not go back, nei­ther will I spare, nei­ther will I re­pent; ac­cord­ing to thy ways, and ac­cord­ing to thy do­ings, shall they judge thee, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. Also the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  16. Son of man, be­hold, I take away from thee the de­sire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet nei­ther shalt thou mourn nor weep, nei­ther shall thy tears run down.
  17. Forbear to cry, make no mourn­ing for the dead, bind the tire of thine head up­on thee, and put on thy shoes up­on thy feet, and cov­er not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men.
  18. So I spake un­to the peo­ple in the morn­ing: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morn­ing as I was commanded.
  19. And the peo­ple said un­to me, Wilt thou not tell us what these things are to us, that thou do­est so?
  20. Then I an­swered them, The word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  21. Speak un­to the house of Is­ra­el, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will pro­fane my sanc­tu­ary, the ex­cel­len­cy of your strength, the de­sire of your eyes, and that which your soul pit­i­eth; and your sons and your daugh­ters whom ye have left shall fall by‍ ‍the sword.
  22. And ye shall do as I have done: ye shall not cov­er your lips, nor eat the bread of men.
  23. And your tiresshall beup­on your heads, and your shoes up­on your feet: ye shall not mourn nor weep; but ye shall pine away for your in­iq­ui­ties,. and mourn one to­ward another.
  24. Thus E-‍ze‍′‍-‍ki-‍el is un­to you a sign: ac­cord­ing to all that he hath done shall ye do: and when this com­eth, ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  25. Also, thou son of man, shall it not be in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glo­ry, the de­sire of their eyes, and that where­up­on they set their minds, their sons and their daughters,
  26. That he that es­cap­eth in that day shall come un­to thee, to cause thee to hear it with thine ears?
  27. In that day shall thy mouth be opened to him which is es­caped, and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb: and thou shalt be a sign un­to them; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍25 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face against the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites, and proph­e­sy against them;
  3. And say un­to the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites, Hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thou saidst, Aha, against my sanc­tu­ary, when it was pro­faned; and against the land of Is­ra­el, when it was des­o­late; and against the house of Ju­dah, when they went in­to captivity;
  4. Behold, there­fore I will de­liv­er thee to the men of the east for a pos­ses­sion, and they shall set their pal­ac­es in thee, and make their dwell­ings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy‍ ‍milk.
  5. And I will make Rab‍′‍-‍bah a sta­ble for cam­els, and the Am‍′‍-‍on-‍ites‍(’ land) a couch­ing­place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  6. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thou hast clapped thine hands, and stamped with the feet, and re­joiced in heart with all thy despite against the land of Israel;
  7. Behold, there­fore I will stretch out mine hand up­on thee, and will de­liv­er thee for a spoil to the heath­en;  and I will cause thee to per­ish out of the coun­tries: I will de­stroy thee; and thou shalt know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  8. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause that Moab and Se‍′‍-‍ir do say, Be­hold, the house of Ju­dah is like un­to all the‍ ‍heath­en;
  9. Therefore, be­hold, I will open the side of Moab from the cit­ies, from his cit­ies which are on his fron­tiers, the glo­ry of the coun­try, Beth–‍jesh‍′‍-‍i-‍moth, Ba‍′‍-‍al–‍e‍′‍-‍on, and Kir-‍i-‍a-‍tha‍′‍-‍im,
  10. Unto the men of the east with the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites, and will give them in pos­ses­sion, that the Am‍′‍-‍mon-‍ites may not be re­mem­bered among the‍ ‍na­tions.
  11. And I will ex­e­cute judg­ments up­on Moab; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  12. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause that E‍′‍-‍dom hath dealt against the house of Ju­dah by tak­ing ven­geance, and hath great­ly of­fend­ed, and re­venged him­self up­on them;
  13. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; I will al­so stretch out mine hand up­on E‍′‍-‍dom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it‍ ‍des­o­late from Te‍′‍-‍man; and they of De‍′‍-‍dan shall fall by the sword.
  14. And I will lay my ven­geance up­on E‍′‍-‍dom by the hand of my peo­ple Is­ra­el: and they shall do in E‍′‍-‍dom ac­cord­ing to mine an­ger and ac­cord­ing to my fu­ry; and they shall know my ven­geance, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines have dealt by re­venge, and have tak­en ven­geance with a de­spite­ful heart, to de­stroy it for the old hatred;
  16. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will stretch out mine hand up­on the Phi-‍lis‍′‍-‍tines, and I will cut off the Cher‍′‍-‍e-‍thims, and de­stroy the rem­nant of the sea coast.
  17. 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.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍26 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the elev­enth year, in the first day of the month, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, be­cause that Ty‍′‍-‍rus hath said against Je­ru­sa­lem, Aha, she is bro­ken that was the gates of the peo­ple: she is turned un­to me: I shall be re­plen­ished,now she is laid waste:
  3. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, O‍ ‍Ty‍′‍-‍rus, and will cause ma­ny na­tions to come up against thee, as the sea caus­eth his waves to come up.
  4. And they shall de­stroy the walls of‍ ‍Ty‍′‍-‍rus, and break down her tow­ers: I will al­so scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.
  5. It shall be a place for the spread­ing of nets in the midst of the sea: for I have spo­ken it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; and it shall be­come a spoil to the na­tions.
  6. And her daugh­ters which are in the field shall be slain by the sword; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  7. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will bring up­on Ty‍′‍-‍rus Neb-‍u-‍chad-‍rez‍′‍-‍zar king of Bab­y­lon, a king of kings, from the north, with hors­es, and with char­i­ots, and with horse­men, and com­pa­nies, and much people.
  8. He shall slay with the sword thy daugh­ters in the field: and he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift up the buck­ler against thee.
  9. And he shall set en­gines of war against thy walls, and with his ax­es he shall break down thy towers.
  10. By rea­son of the abun­dance of his hors­es their dust shall cov­er thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horse­men, and of the wheels, and of the char­i­ots, when he shall en­ter in­to thy gates, as men en­ter in­to a city where­in is made a breach.
  11. With the hoofs of his hors­es shall he tread down all thy streets: he shall slay thy peo­ple by the sword, and thy strong garri­sons shall go down to the ground.
  12. And they shall make a spoil of thy rich­es, and make a prey of thy mer­chan­dise: and they shall break down thy walls, and de­stroy thy pleas­ant hous­es: and they shall lay thy stones and thy tim­ber and thy dust in the midst of the water.
  13. And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
  14. And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a place to spread nets up­on; thou shalt be built no more: for I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩ to Ty‍′‍-‍rus; Shall not the isles shake at the sound of thy fall, when the wound­ed cry, when the slaugh­ter is made in the midst of thee?
  16. Then all the princ­es of the sea shall come down from their thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their (em)­broid­ered gar­ments: they shall clothe them­selves with trem­bling; they shall sit up­on the ground, and shall trem­ble at ev­ery mo­ment, and be as­ton­ished at thee.
  17. And they shall take up a lam­en­ta­tion for thee, and say to thee, How art thou de­stroyed, that wast in­hab­it­ed of sea­far­ing men, the re­nowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and her in­hab­it­ants, which cause their ter­ror to be on all that haunt it!
  18. Now shall the isles trem­ble in the day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in the sea shall be trou­bled at thy‍ ‍departure.‍ ‍[]

  1. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; When I shall make thee a‍ ‍des­o­late city, like the cit­ies that are not in­hab­it­ed; when I shall bring up the deep up­on thee, and great wa­ters shall cov­er thee;
  2. When I shall bring thee down with them that de­scend in­to the pit, with the peo­ple of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth, in plac­es des­o­late of old, with them that go down to the pit, that thou be not in­hab­ited; and I shall set glo­ry in the land of the living;
  3. I will make thee a ter­ror, and thou shalt be no more: though thou be sought for, yet shalt thou nev­er be found again, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍27 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  2. Now, thou son of man, take up a lam­en­ta­tion for Ty‍′‍-‍rus;
  3. And say un­to Ty‍′‍-‍rus, O‍ ‍thou that art lo­cate‍(d) at the en­try of the sea, which art a mer­chant peo­ple for ma­ny isles. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; O‍ ‍Ty‍′‍-‍rus, thou hast said, I am of per­fect beauty.
  4. Thy bor­ders are in the midst of the seas, thy build­ers have per­fect­ed thy beauty.
  5. They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Se‍′‍-‍nir: they have tak­en ce­dars from Leb‍′‍-‍a non to make masts for thee.
  6. Of the oaks of Ba‍′‍-‍shan have they made thine oars; the com­pa­ny of the Ash‍′‍-‍ur-‍ites have made thy bench­es of ivo­ry, brought out of the isles of Chit‍′‍-‍tim.
  7. Fine lin­en with (em)­broid­ered work from Egypt was that which thou spread­est forth to be thy sail; blue and pur­ple from the isles of E-‍li‍′‍-‍shah was that which cov­ered thee.
  8. The in­hab­it­ants of Zi‍′‍-‍don and Ar‍′‍-‍vad were thy mar­i­ners: thy wise men, O‍ ‍Ty‍′‍-‍rus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.
  9. The an­cients of Ge‍′‍-‍bal and the wise men there­of were in thee thy calk­ers: all the ships of the sea with their mar­i­ners were in thee to oc­cu­py thy‍ ‍merchandise.
  10. They of Per­sia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine ar­my, thy men of war: they hanged the shield and hel­met in thee; they set forth thy‍ ‍comeliness.
  11. The men of Ar‍′‍-‍vad with thine ar­my were up­on thy walls round about, and the Gam‍′‍-‍ma-‍dims were in thy tow­ers: they hanged their shields up­on thy walls round about; they have made thy beau­ty perfect.
  12. Tar‍′‍-‍shish was thy mer­chant by rea­son of the mul­ti­tude of all kind of riches; with sil­ver, iron, tin, and lead, they trad­ed in thy fairs.
  13. Ja‍′‍-‍van, Tu‍′‍-‍bal, and Me‍′‍-‍shech, there were thy mer­chants: they trad­ed the per­sons of men and ves­sels of brass in thy market.
  14. They of the house of To-‍gar‍′‍-‍mah trad­ed in thy fairs with hors­es and horse­men and mules.
  15. The men of De‍′‍-‍dan were thy mer­chants; ma­ny isleswere the mer­chan­dise of thine hand: they brought thee for a pres­ent horns of ivo­ry and ebony.
  16. Syria was thy mer­chant by rea­son of the mul­ti­tude of the wares of thy mak­ing: they oc­cu­pied in thy fairs with em­er­alds, pur­ple, and (em)­broid­ered work, and fine lin­en, and coral, and‍ ‍agate.
  17. Judah, and the land of Is­ra­el, they were thy mer­chants: they trad­ed in thy mar­ket wheat of Min‍′‍-‍nith, and Pan‍′‍-‍nag, and hon­ey, and oil, and balm.
  18. Damascus was thy mer­chant in the mul­ti­tude of the ware of thy making, for the mul­ti­tude of all rich­es; in the wine of Hel‍′‍-‍bon, and white wool.
  19. Dan al­so and Ja‍′‍-‍van go­ing to and fro oc­cu­pied in thy fairs: bright iron, cas­sia, and cal­a­mus, were in thy‍ ‍market.
  20. De‍′‍-‍dan was thy mer­chant in pre­cious clothes for chariots.
  21. Arabia, and all the princ­es of Ke‍′‍-‍dar, they oc­cu­pied with thee in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.
  22. The mer­chants of She‍′‍-‍ba and Ra‍′‍-‍a-‍mah, they were thy mer­chants: they oc­cu­pied in thy fairs with chief of all spic­es, and with all pre­cious stones, and gold.
  23. Ha‍′‍-‍ran, and Can‍′‍-‍neh, and Eden, the mer­chants of She‍′‍-‍ba, Assh‍′‍-‍ur, and Chil‍′‍-‍mad, were thy merchants.
  24. These were thy mer­chants in all sorts of things, in blue clothes, and (em)­broid­ered work, and in chests of rich ap­par­el, bound with cords, and made of ce­dar, among thy merchandise.
  25. The ships of Tar‍′‍-‍shish did sing of thee in thy mar­ket: and thou wast re­plen­ished, and made very glo­ri­ous in the midst of the seas.
  26. Thy row­ers have brought thee in­to great wa­ters: the east wind hath bro­ken thee in the midst of the seas.
  27. Thy rich­es, and thy fairs, thy mer­chan­dise, thy mar­i­ners, and thy pi­lots, thy calk­ers, and the oc­cu­pi­ers of thy mer­chan­dise, and all thy men of war, that are in thee, and in all thy com­pa­ny which is in the midst of thee, shall fall in­to the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.
  28. The sub­urbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.
  29. And all that han­dle the oar, the mar­i­ners, and all the pi­lots of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand up­on the land;
  30. And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and shall cry bit­ter­ly, and shall cast up dust up­on their heads, they shall wal­low them­selves in the ashes:
  31. And they shall make them­selves ut­ter­ly bald for thee, and gird them­(selves) with sack­cloth, and they shall weep for thee with bit­ter­ness of heart and bit­ter wailing.
  32. And in their wail­ing they shall take up a lam­en­ta­tion for thee, and la­ment over thee, say­ing, What city is like Ty‍′‍-‍rus, like the de­stroyed in the midst of the sea?
  33. When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou fill­edst ma­ny peo­ple; thou didst en­rich the kings of the earth with the mul­ti­tude of thy rich­es and of thy merchandise.
  34. In the time when thou shalt be bro­ken by the seas in the depths of the wa­ters thy mer­chan­dise and all thy com­pa­ny in the midst of thee shall fall.
  35. All the in­hab­it­ants of the isles shall be as­ton­ished at thee, and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be trou­bled in their countenance.
  36. The mer­chants among the peo­ple‍(s) shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a ter­ror, and nev­er shalt be any more.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍28 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, say un­to the prince of Ty‍′‍-‍rus, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thine heart islift­ed up, and thou hast said, I am a‍ ‍‍God‍, I sit in the seat of‍ ‍‍God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not ⟨God⟩, though thou set thine heart as the heart of ⟨God⟩:
  3. Behold, thou art wis­er than Dan­iel; there is no se­cret that they can hide from thee:
  4. With thy wis­dom and with thine un­der­stand­ing thou hast got­ten thee rich­es, and hast got­ten gold and sil­ver in­to thy treasuries:
  5. By thy great wis­dom and by thy traf­fick hast thou increased thy rich­es, and thine heart is lift­ed up be­cause of thy riches:
  6. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause thou hast set thine heart as the heart of ⟨God⟩;
  7. Behold, there­fore I will bring stran­gers up­on thee, the ter­ri­ble of the na­tions: and they shall draw their swords against the beau­ty of thy wis­dom, and they shall de­file thy brightness.
  8. They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
  9. Wilt thou yet say be­fore him that slay­eth thee, I am ⟨God⟩? but thou shalt be a man, and no ⟨God⟩, in the hand of him that slay­eth thee.
  10. Thou shalt die the deaths of the un­cir­cum­cised by the hand of stran­gers: for I have spo­ken it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  11. Moreover the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  12. Son of man, take up a lam­en­ta­tion up­on the king of Ty‍′‍-‍rus, and say un­to him, ⟨•Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Thou seal­est up the sum, full of wis­dom, and per­fect in beauty.
  13. Thou hast been in Eden the garden of ⟨God⟩; ev­ery pre­cious stone was thy cov­er­ing,the sar­di­us, to­paz, and the dia­mond,the beryl,the on­yx, and the jas­per,the sap­phire,the em­er­ald, and the car­bun­cle, and gold: the work­man­ship of thy tab­rets and of thy pipes was pre­pared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
  14. Thou art the anoint­ed cher­ub that cov­er­eth (my throne in‍ ‍wor­ship); and I have set thee so: thou wast up­on the holy moun­tain of ⟨God⟩; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the (bril­liant) stones of fire.
  15. Thou wast per­fect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till in­iq­ui­ty was found in thee.
  16. By the mul­ti­tude of thy mer­chan­dise they have filled the midst of thee with‍ ‍vi­o­lence, and thou hast sinned: there­fore I will cast thee as pro­fane out of the moun­tain of ⟨God⟩: and I will de­stroy thee, O‍ ‍cov­er­ing cher­ub, from the midst of the (bril­liant) stones of fire.
  17. Thine heart was lift­ed up be­cause of thy beau­ty, thou hast cor­rupt­ed thy wis­dom by rea­son of thy bright­ness: I will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee be­fore kings, that they may be­hold thee.
  18. Thou hast de­filed thy sanc­tu­ar­ies by the mul­ti­tude of thy traf­fick; there­fore will I bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall de­vour thee, and I will bring thee to ash­es up­on the earth in the sight of all them that be­hold thee.
  19. All they that know thee among the peo­ple shall be as­ton­ished at thee: thou shalt be a ter­ror, and nev­er shalt thou be any more.•⟩(See Also: Isaiah 14:12-17)
  20. Again the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  21. Son of man, set thy face against Zi‍′‍-‍don, and proph­e­sy against it,
  22. And say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, O‍ ‍Zi‍′‍-‍don; and I will be glo­ri­fied in the midst of thee: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I shall have ex­e­cut­ed judg­ments in her, and shall be sanc­ti­fied in her.
  23. For I will send in­to her pes­ti­lence, and blood in­to her street; and the wound­ed shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword up­on her on ev­ery side; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  24. And there shall be no more a prick­ing brier un­to the house of Is­ra­el, nor any griev­ing thorn of all that are round about them, that de­spised them, and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  25. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; When I shall have gath­ered the house of Is­ra­el from the peo­ple among whom they are scat­tered, and shall be sanc­ti­fied in them in the sight of the heath­en, then shall they dwell in their land that I have giv­en to my serv­ant Jacob.
  26. And they shall dwell safe­ly there­in, and shall build hous­es, and plant vine­yards; yea, they shall dwell with con­fi­dence, when I have ex­e­cut­ed judg­ments up­on all those that de­spise them round about them; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ their ⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍29 
  1. IN THE TENTH YEAR, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of the month, the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and proph­e­sy against him, and against all Egypt:
  3. Speak, and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great drag­on that li­eth in the midst of his riv­ers, which hath said, My riv­er is mine own, and I have made it for myself.
  4. But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of thy riv­ers to stick un­to thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy riv­ers, and all the fish of thy riv­ers shall stick un­to thy‍ ‍scales.
  5. And I will leave thee thrown in­to the wil­der­ness, thee and all the fish of thy riv­ers: thou shalt fall up­on the open fields; thou shalt not be brought to­geth­er, nor gath­ered: I have giv­en thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of the (first)‍ ‍heaven.
  6. And all the in­hab­it­ants of Egypt shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, be­cause they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.
  7. When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and rend all their shoul­der: and when they leaned up­on thee, thou brak­est, and mad­est all their loins to be at a stand.
  8. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will bring a sword up­on thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
  9. And the land of Egypt shall be des­o­late and waste; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩: be­cause he hath said, The riv­er is mine, and I have made it.
  10. Behold, there­fore I am against thee, and against thy riv­ers, and I will make the land of Egypt ut­ter­ly waste anddes­o­late, from the tow­er of Sy-‍e‍′‍-‍ne even un­to the bor­der of E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a.
  11. No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass through it, nei­ther shall it be in­hab­it­ed for­ty‍ ‍years.
  12. And I will make the land of Egypt des­o­late in the midst of the coun­tries that aredes­o­late, and her cit­ies among the cit­ies that are laid waste shall be des­o­late for­ty years: and I will scat­ter the Egyp­tians among the na­tions, and will dis­perse them through the countries.
  13. Yet thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; At the end of for­ty years will I gath­er the Egyp­tians from the peo­ple whith­er they were scattered:
  14. And I will bring again the cap­tiv­ity of Egypt, and will cause them to re­turn in­to the land of Path‍′‍-‍ros, in­to the land of their hab­i­ta­tion; and they shall be there a‍ ‍base‍ ‍kingdom.
  15. It shall be the bas­est of the king­doms; nei­ther shall it ex­alt it­self any more above the na­tions: for I will di­min­ish them, that they shall no more rule over the na­tions.
  16. And it shall be no more the con­fi­dence of the house of Is­ra­el, which bring­eth theirin­iq­ui­ty to re­mem­brance, when they shall look af­ter them: but they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  17. And it came to pass in the sev­en and twen­ti­eth year, in the first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  18. Son of man, Neb-‍u-‍chad-‍rez‍′‍-‍zar king of Bab­y­lon caused his ar­my to serve a great serv­ice against Ty‍′‍-‍rus: ev­ery head was made bald, and ev­ery shoul­der was peeled: yet had he no wag­es, nor his ar­my, for Ty‍′‍-‍rus, for the serv­ice that he had served against it:
  19. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will give the land of Egypt un­to Neb-‍u-‍chad-‍rez‍′‍-‍zar king of Bab­y­lon; and he shall take her mul­ti­tude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wag­es for his army.
  20. I have giv­en him the land of Egypt for his la­bour where­with he served against it, be­cause they wrought for me, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩.
  21. In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Is­ra­el to bud forth, and I will give thee the open­ing of the mouth in the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍30 
  1. THE WORD OF THE⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, proph­e­sy and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Howl, ye, Woe worth the day!
  3. For the day is near, even the day of the ⟨Lord⟩ is near, a cloudy day; it shall be the time of the‍ ‍heathen.
  4. And the sword shall come up­on Egypt, and great pain shall be in E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her mul­ti­tude, and her foun­da­tions shall be bro­ken down.
  5. E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a, and Lib‍′‍-‍y-‍a, and Lyd‍′‍-‍i-‍a, and all the min­gled peo­ple, and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the sword.
  6. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; They al­so that up­hold Egypt shall fall; and the pride of her pow­er shall come down: from the tow­er of Sy-‍e‍′‍-‍ne shall they fall in it by the sword, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  7. And they shall be des­o­late in the midst of the coun­tries that aredes­o­late, and her cit­ies shall be in the midst of the cit­ies that are wasted.
  8. And they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I have set a fire in Egypt, and when all her help­ers shall be destroyed.
  9. In that day shall mes­sen­gers go forth from me in ships to make the care­less E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍ans afraid, and great pain shall come up­on them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
  10. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I will al­so make the mul­ti­tude of Egypt to cease by the hand of Neb-‍u-‍chad-‍rez‍′‍-‍zar king of Babylon.
  11. He and his peo­ple with him, the ter­ri­ble of the na­tions, shall be brought to de­stroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.
  12. And I will make the riv­ers dry, and sell the land in­to the hand of the wick­ed: and I will make the land waste, and all that is there­in, by the hand of stran­gers: I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
  13. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I will al­so de­stroy the idols, and I will cause their im­ag­es to cease out of Noph; and there shall be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.
  14. And I will make Path‍′‍-‍ros des­o­late, and will set fire in Zo‍′‍-‍an, and will ex­e­cute judg­ments in No.
  15. And I will pour my fu­ry up­on Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I will cut off the mul­ti­tude of No.
  16. And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and No shall be rent asun­der, and Noph shall have dis­tress­es daily.
  17. The young men of A‍′‍-‍ven and of Pi–‍be‍′‍-‍seth shall fall by the sword: and these cit­ies shall go in­to captivity.
  18. At Te-‍haph‍′‍-‍ne-‍hes al­so the day shall be dark­ened, when I shall break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cov­er her, and her daugh­ters shall go in­to captivity.
  19. Thus will I ex­e­cute judg­ments in Egypt: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  20. And it came to pass in the elev­enth year, in the first month, in the sev­enth day of the month, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  21. Son of man, I have bro­ken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt; and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roll­er to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.
  22. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that which was bro­ken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.
  23. And I will scat­ter the Egyp­tians among the na­tions, and will dis­perse them through the countries.
  24. And I will strength­en the arms of the king of Bab­y­lon, and put my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaohs arms, and he shall groan be­fore him with the groan­ings of a dead­ly wound­ed man.
  25. But I will strength­en the arms of the king of Bab­y­lon, and the arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I shall put my sword in­to the hand of the king of Bab­y­lon, and he shall stretch it out up­on the land of Egypt.
  26. And I will scat­ter the Egyp­tians among the na­tions, and dis­perse them among the coun­tries; and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍31 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the elev­enth year, in the third month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, speak un­to Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his mul­ti­tude; Whom art thou like in thy‍ ‍greatness?
  3. Behold, the As­syr­i­an was a ce­dar in Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non with fair branch­es, and with a shad­ow­ing shroud, and of an high stat­ure; and his top was among the thick boughs.
  4. The wa­ters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her riv­ers, run­ning round about his plants, and set out her lit­tle riv­ers un­to all the trees of the field.
  5. Therefore his height was ex­alt­ed above all the trees of the field, and his boughs were mul­ti­plied, and his branch­es be­came long be­cause of the mul­ti­tude of wa­ters, when he shot forth.
  6. All the fowls of (the first) heav­en made their nests in his boughs, and un­der his branch­es did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young, and un­der his shad­ow dwelt all great na­tions.
  7. Thus was he fair in his great­ness, in the length of his branch­es for his root was by great waters.
  8. The ce­dars in the gar­den of ⟨God⟩ could not hide him: the fir trees were not like his boughts, and the ches‍(t)­nut trees were not like his branch­es; nor any tree in the gar­den of ⟨God⟩ was like un­to him in his beauty.
  9. I have made him fair by the mul­ti­tude of his branch­es: so that all the trees of Eden, that were in the gar­den of ⟨God⟩, en­vied him.
  10. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­cause thou hast lift­ed up thy­self in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his heart is‍ ‍lift­ed up in his height;
  11. I have there­fore de­liv­ered him in­to the hand of the migh­ty one of the heath­en; he shall sure­ly deal with him: I have driv­en him out for his wickedness.
  12. And stran­gers, the ter­ri­ble of the na­tions, have cut him off, and have left him: up­on the moun­tains and in all the val­leys his branch­es are fall­en, and his boughs are bro­ken by all the riv­ers of the land; and all the peo­ple of the earth are gone down from his shad­ow, and have left him.
  13. Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the (first) heav­en re­main, and all the beasts of the field shall be up­on his branches:
  14. To the end that none of all the trees by the wa­ters ex­alt them­selves for their height, nei­ther shoot up their top among the thick boughs, nei­ther their trees stand up in their height, all that drink wa­ter: for they are all de­liv­ered un­to death, to the neth­er parts of the earth, in the midst of the chil­dren of men, with them that go down to the pit.
  15. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; In the day when he went down to the grave I caused a mourn­ing: I cov­ered the deep for him, and I re­strained the floods there­of, and the great wa­ters were stayed: and I caused Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non to mourn for him, and all the trees of the field faint­ed for him.
  16. I made the na­tions to shake at the sound of his fall, when I cast him down to hell with them that des­cend in­to the pit: and all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Leb‍′‍-‍a-‍non, all that drink wa­ter, shall be com­fort­ed in the neth­er parts of the earth.
  17. They al­so went down in­to hell with him un­to them that be slain with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt un­der his shad­ow in the midst of the‍ ‍heathen.
  18. To whom art thou thus like in glo­ry and in great­ness among the trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden un­to the neth­er parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the un­cir­cum­cised with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his mul­ti­tude, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍32 
  1. AND IT CAME TO pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month, in the first day of the month, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, take up a lam­en­ta­tion for Pharaoh king of Egypt, and say un­to him, Thou art like a young li­on of the na­tions, and thou art as a‍ ‍whale in the seas: and thou cam­est forth with thy riv­ers, and trou­bledst the wa­ters with thy feet, and foul­edst their rivers.
  3. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I will there­fore spread out my net over thee with a com­pa­ny of ma­ny peo­ple; and they shall bring thee up in my net.
  4. Then will I leave thee up­on the land, I will cast thee forth up­on the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the (first) heav­en to re­main up­on thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.
  5. And I will lay thy flesh up­on the moun­tains, and fill the val­leys with thy height.
  6. I will al­so wa­ter with thy blood the land where­in thou swim­mest even to the moun­tains; and the riv­ers shall be full of thee.
  7. And when I shall put thee out,I will cov­er the (sec­ond) heav­en, and make the stars there­of dark; I will cov­er the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
  8. All the bright lights of (the sec­ond) heav­en will I make dark over thee, and set dark­ness up­on the land, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  9. I will al­so vex the hearts of ma­ny peo­ple, when I shall bring thy de­struc­tion among the na­tions, in­to the coun­tries which thou hast not known.
  10. Yea, I will make ma­ny peo­ple amazed at thee, and their kings shall be hor­rib­ly afraid for thee, when I shall bran­dish my sword be­fore them; and they shall trem­ble at ev­ery mo­ment, ev­ery man for his own life, in the day of thy fall.
  11. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; The sword of the king of Bab­y­lon shall come up­on thee.
  12. By the swords of the migh­ty will I cause thy mul­ti­tude to fall, the ter­ri­ble of the na­tions, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the mul­ti­tude there­of shall be destroyed.
  13. I will de­stroy al­so all the beasts there­of from beside the great wa­ters; nei­ther shall the foot of man trou­ble them any more, nor the hoofs of beasts trou­ble them.
  14. Then will I make their wa­ters deep, and cause their riv­ers to run like oil, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. When I shall make the land of Egypt des­o­late, and the coun­try shall be des­ti­tute of that where­of it was full, when I shall smite all them that dwell there­in, then shall they know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  16. This is the lam­en­ta­tion where­with they shall la­ment her: the daugh­ters of the na­tions shall la­ment her: they shall la­ment for her, even for Egypt, and for all her mul­ti­tude, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  17. It came to pass al­so in the twelfth year, in the fif­teenth day of the month, that the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  18. Son of man, wail for the mul­ti­tude of Egypt, and cast them down, even her, and the daugh­ters of the fa­mous na­tions, un­to the neth­er parts of the earth, with them that go down in­to the pit.
  19. Whom dost thou pass in beau­ty? go down, and be thou laid with the uncircumcised.
  20. They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the sword: she is de­liv­ered to the sword: draw her and all her multitudes.
  21. The strong among the migh­ty shall speak to him out of the midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie un­cir­cum­cised, slain by the sword.
  22. Assh‍′‍-‍ur is there and all her com­pa­ny: his graves are about him: all of them slain, fall­en by the sword:
  23. Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her com­pa­ny is round about her grave: all of them slain, fall­en by the sword, which caused ter­ror in the land of the living.
  24. There is E‍′‍-‍lam and all her mul­ti­tude round about her grave, all of them slain, fall­en by the sword, which are gone down un­cir­cum­cised in­to the neth­er parts of the earth, which caused their ter­ror in the land of the liv­ing; yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.
  25. They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her mul­ti­tude: her graves are round about him: all of them un­cir­cum­cised, slain by the sword: though their ter­ror was caused in the land of the liv­ing, yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the midst of them that be slain.
  26. There is Me‍′‍-‍shech, Tu‍′‍-‍bal, and all her mul­ti­tude: her graves are round about him: all of them un­cir­cum­cised, slain by the sword, though they caused their ter­ror in the land of the living.
  27. And they shall not lie with the migh­ty that are fall­en of the un­cir­cum­cised, which are gone down to hell with their weap­ons of war: and they have laid their swords un­der their heads, but their in­iq­ui­ties shall be up­on their bones, though they were the ter­ror of the migh­ty in the land of the living.
  28. Yea, thou shalt be bro­ken in the midst of the un­cir­cum­cised, and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.
  29. There is E‍′‍-‍dom, her kings, and all her princ­es, which with their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword: they shall lie with the un­cir­cum­cised, and with them that go down to the pit.
  30. There be the princ­es of the north, all of them, and all the Zi-‍do‍′‍-‍ni-‍ans, which are gone down with the slain; with their ter­ror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie un­cir­cum­cised with them that be slain by the sword, and bear their shame with them that go down to the pit.
  31. Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be com­fort­ed over all his mul­ti­tude, even Pharaoh and all his ar­my slain by the sword, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  32. For I have caused my ter­ror in the land of the liv­ing: and he shall be laid in the midst of the un­cir­cum­cised with them that are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his mul­ti­tude, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍33 
  1. AGAIN THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, speak to the chil­dren of thy peo­ple, and say un­to them, When I bring the sword up­on a land, if the peo­ple of the land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:
  3. If when he see the sword come up­on the land, he blow the trum­pet, and warn the people;
  4. Then who­so­ever hear­eth the sound of the trum­pet, and tak­eth not warn­ing; if tyhe sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be up­on his own head.
  5. He heard the sound of the trum­pet, and took not warn­ing; his blood shall be up­on him. But he that tak­eth warn­ing shall de­liv­er his soul.
  6. But if the watch­man see the sword come, and blow not the trum­pet, and the peo­ple be not warned; if the sword come, and take any per­son from among them, he is tak­en away in his in­iq­ui­ty; but his blood will I re­quire at the wat­ch­mans hand.
  7. So thou, O‍ ‍son of man, I have set thee a‍ ‍watch­man un­to the house of Is­ra­el; there­fore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them from me.
  8. When I say un­to the wick­ed, O‍ ‍wick­ed man, thou shalt sure­ly die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wick­ed from his way, that wick­ed man shall die in his in­iq­ui­ty; but his blood will I re­quire at thine hand.
  9. Nevertheless, if thou warn the wick­ed of his way to turn from it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his in­iq­ui­ty; but thou hast de­liv­ered thy‍ ‍soul.
  10. Therefore, O‍ ‍thou son of man, speak un­to the house of Is­ra­el; Thus ye speak, say­ing, If our trans­gres­sions and our sins be up­on us, and we pineaway in them, how should we then live?
  11. Say un­to them, As I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, I have no pleas­ure in the death of the wick­ed; but that the wick­ed turn from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O‍ ‍house of Israel?
  12. Therefore, son of man, say un­to the chil­dren of thy peo­ple, The righ­teous­ness of‍ ‍the righ­teous shall not de­liv­er him in the day of his trans­gres­sion: as for the wick­ed­ness of the wick­ed, he shall not rall there­by in the day that he turn­eth from his wick­ed­ness; nei­ther shall the righ­teous be able to live for his righ­teous­ness in the day that he sinneth.
  13. When I say to‍ ‍the righ­teous,that he shall sure­ly live; if he trust to his own righ­teous­ness, and com­mit iniquity, all his righ­teous­nesses shall not be re­mem­bered; but for his iniquity that he hath com­mit­ted, he shall die for it.
  14. Again, when I say un­to the wick­ed, Thou shalt sure­ly die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is law­ful and right;
  15. If the wick­ed re­store the pledge, give again that (which) he had robbed, (and) walk in the stat­utes of life, with­out com­mit­ting iniquity; he shall sure­ly live, he shall not die.
  16. None of his sins that he hath com­mit­ted shall be men­tioned un­to him: he hath done that which is law­ful and right; he shall sure­ly live.
  17. Yet the chil­dren of thy peo­ple say, The way of the ⟨Lord⟩ is not equal: but as for them, their way is not‍ ‍equal.
  18. When the righ­teous turn­eth from his righ­teous­ness, and com­mit­teth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
  19. But if the wick­ed turn from his wick­ed­ness, and do that which is law­ful and right, he shall live thereby.
  20. Yet ye say, The way of the ⟨Lord⟩ is not equal. O‍ ‍ye house of Is­ra­el, I will judge you ev­ery one af­ter his‍ ‍ways.
  21. And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our cap­tiv­i­ty, in the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had es­caped out of Je­ru­sa­lem came un­to me, say­ing, The city is smitten.
  22. Now the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ was up­on me in the eve­ning, afore he that was es­caped came; and had opened my mouth, un­til he came to me in the morn­ing; and my mouth was opened, and I‍ ‍was no more dumb.
  23. Then the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  24. Son of man, they that in­hab­it those wastes of the land of Is­ra­el speak, say­ing, Abra­ham was one, and he in­her­it­ed the land: but we are ma­ny; the land is giv­en us for inheritance.
  25. Wherefore say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Ye eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes to­ward your idols, and shed blood: and shall ye pos­sess the land?
  26. Ye stand up­on your sword, ye work abom­i­na­tion, and ye de­file ev­ery one his neigh­bours wife: and shall ye pos­sess the land?
  27. Say thou un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; As I live, sure­ly they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to be de­voured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
  28. For I will lay the land‍ ‍most‍ ‍des­o­late, and the pomp of her strength shall cease; and the moun­tains of Is­ra­el shall be des­o­late, that none shall pass through.
  29. Then shall they know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I have laid the land‍ ‍most‍ ‍des­o­late be­cause of all their abom­i­na­tions which they have committed.
  30. Also, thou son of man, the chil­dren of thy peo­ple still are talk­ing against thee by the walls and in the doors of the hous­es, and speak one to an­oth­er, ev­ery one to his broth­er, say­ing, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that com­eth forth from the ⟨Lord⟩.
  31. And they come un­to thee as the peo­ple com­eth, and they sit be­fore thee as my peo­ple, and they hear the words, but they will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart go­eth af­ter their covetousness.
  32. And, lo, thou art un­to them as a very love­ly song of one that hath a pleas­ant voice, and can play well on an in­stru­ment: for they hear thy words, but they do them not.
  33. And when this com­eth to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a proph­et hath been among them.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍34 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, proph­e­sy, and say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ un­to the shep­herds; Woebe to the shep­herds of Is­ra­el that do feed them­selves! should not the shep­herds feed the flocks?
  3. Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that are fed:but ye feed not the flock‍ ‍(otherwise).
  4. The dis­eased have ye not strength­ened, nei­ther have ye healed that which was sick, nei­ther have ye bound up that which was bro­ken, nei­ther have ye brought again that which was driv­en away, nei­ther have ye sought that which was lost; but with force and with cru­el­ty have ye ruled them.
  5. And they were scat­tered, be­cause there is no shep­herd: and they be­came meat to ev­ery beast of the field, be­cause there was no shep­herd, nei­ther did my shep­herds search for my flock, but the shep­herds fed them­selves, and fed not my flock;
  6. My sheep wan­dered through all the moun­tains, and up­on ev­ery high hill: yea, my flock was scat­tered up­on all the face of the earth, and none did search or seek af­ter them.
  7. Therefore, O‍ ‍ye shep­herds, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩:
  8. As I live sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, sure­ly be­cause my flock be­came a prey, and my flock be­came meat to ev­ery beast of the field, be­cause there was no shep­herd, nei­ther did my shep­herds search for my flock, but the shep­herds fed them­selves, and fed not my‍ ‍flock;
  9. Therefore, O‍ ‍ye shep­herds, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩;
  10. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, I am against the shep­herds; and I will re­quire my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from feed­ing the flock; nei­ther shall the shep­herds feed them­selves any more; for I will de­liv­er my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
  11. For thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I, even I, will both search my sheep, and seek them out.
  12. As a shep­herd seek­eth out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scat­tered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will de­liv­er them out of all plac­es where they have been scat­tered in the cloudy and dark day.
  13. And I will bring them out from the peo­ple, and gath­er them from the coun­tries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them up­on the moun­tains of Is­ra­el by the riv­ers, and in all the in­hab­it­ed plac­es of the country.
  14. I will feed them in a good pas­ture, and up­on the high moun­tains of Is­ra­el shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold, and in a fat pas­ture shall they feed up­on the moun­tains of Israel.
  15. I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  16. I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which was driv­en away, and will bind up that which was bro­ken, and will strength­en that which was sick: but I will de­stroy the fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
  17. And as for you, O‍ ‍my flock, thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I judge be­tween cat­tle and cat­tle, be­tween the rams and the he goats.
  18. Seemeth it a small thing un­to you to have eat­en up the good pas­ture, but ye must tread down with‍ ‍your feet the res­i­due of your pas­tures? and to have drunk of the deep wa­ters, but ye must foul the res­i­due with‍ ‍your feet?
  19. And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trod­den with‍ ‍your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with‍ ‍your feet.
  20. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ un­to them; Be­hold, I, even I, will judge be­tween the fat cat­tle and be­tween the lean cattle.
  21. Because ye have thrust with  side and with shoul­der, and pushed all the dis­eased with your horns, till ye have scat­tered them abroad;
  22. Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey; and I will judge be­tween cat­tle and cattle.
  23. And I will set up one shep­herd over them, and he shall feed them, even my serv­ant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their shepherd.
  24. And I the ⟨Lord⟩ will be their ⟨God⟩, and my serv­ant David a prince among them; I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it.
  25. And I will make with them a cov­en­ant of peace out of the land: and they shall dwell safe­ly in the wil­der­ness, and sleep in the woods.
  26. And I will make them and the plac­es round about my hill a bless­ing; and I will cause the show­er to come down in his sea­son; there shall be show­ers of blessing.
  27. And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth shall yield her in­crease, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I have bro­ken the bands of their yoke, and de­liv­ered them out of the hand of those that served them­selves of them.
  28. And they shall no more be a prey to the heath­en, nei­ther shall the beast of the land, de­vour them; but they shall dwell safe­ly, and none shall make them afraid.
  29. And I will raise up for them a plant of re­nown, and they shall be no more con­sumed with hun­ger in the land, nei­ther bear the shame of the heath­en any more.
  30. Thus shall they know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ their ⟨God⟩ am with them, and that they, even the house of Is­ra­el, are my peo­ple, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  31. And ye my flock, the flock of my pas­ture, are men, andam your ⟨God⟩, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍35 
  1. MOREOVER THE WORD of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face against mount Se‍′‍-‍ir, and proph­e­sy against it,
  3. And say un­to it, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, O‍ ‍mount Se‍′‍-‍ir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make thee‍ ‍most‍ ‍des­o­late.
  4. I will lay thy cit­ies waste, and thou shalt be des­o­late, and thou shalt know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  5. Because thou hast had a per­pet­u­al ha­tred and hast shed the blood of the chil­dren of Is­ra­el by the force of the sword in the time of their ca­lam­i­ty, in the time that theirin­iq­ui­tyhad an end:
  6. Therefore, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, I will pre­pare thee un­to blood, and blood shall pur­sue thee: sith thou hast not hat­ed blood, even blood shall pur­sue thee.
  7. Thus will I make mount Se‍′‍-‍ir‍ ‍most‍ ‍des­o­late, and cut off from it him that pass­eth out and him that returneth.
  8. And I will fill his moun­tains with his slain men: in thy hills, and in thy val­leys, and in all thy riv­ers, shall they fall that are slain with the sword.
  9. I will make thee per­pet­u­al des­o­la­tions, and thy cit­ies shall not re­turn: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  10. Because thou hast said, These two na­tions and these two coun­tries shall be mine, and we will pos­sess it; where­as the ⟨Lord⟩ was there:
  11. Therefore, as I live, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, I will even do ac­cord­ing to thine en­vy which thou hast used out of thy ha­tred against them; and I will make my­self known among them, when I have judged thee.
  12. And thou shalt know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, and that I have heard all thy blas­phe­mies which thou hast spo­ken against the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, say­ing, They are laid des­o­late, they are giv­en us to consume.
  13. Thus with your mouth ye have boast­ed against me, and have mul­ti­plied your words against me: I have heard them.
  14. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; When the whole earth re­joic­eth, I will make thee‍ ‍des­o­late.
  15. As thou didst re­joice at the in­her­it­ance of the house of Is­ra­el, be­cause it was des­o­late, so will I do un­to thee: thou shalt be des­o­late, O‍ ‍mount Se‍′‍-‍ir, and all Id-‍u-‍me‍′‍-‍a,even all of it: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍36 
  1. ALSO, THOU SON OF‍ ‍man, proph­e­sy un­to the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, and say, Ye moun­tains of Is­ra­el, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩:
  2. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause the en­e­my hath said against you, Aha, even the an­cient high plac­es are ours in possession:
  3. Therefore proph­e­sy and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­cause they have made youdes­o­late, and swal­lowed you up on ev­ery side, that ye might be a pos­ses­sion un­to the res­i­due of the heath­en, and ye are tak­en up in the lips of‍ ‍talk­ers, and are an in­fa­my of the people:
  4. Therefore, ye moun­tains of Is­ra­el, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ to the moun­tains, and to the hills, to the riv­ers, and to the val­leys, to the des­o­late wastes, and to the cit­ies that are for­sak­en, which be­came a prey and de­ri­sion to the the res­i­due of the heath­en that are round about;
  5. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Sure­ly in the fire of my jeal­ousy have I spo­ken against the res­i­due of the heath­en, and against all Id-‍u-‍me‍′‍-‍a, which have ap­point­ed my land in­to their pos­ses­sion with the joy of all their heart, with de­spite­ful minds, to cast it out for a prey.
  6. Prophesy there­fore con­cern­ing the land of Is­ra­el, and say un­to the moun­tains, and to the hills, to the riv­ers, and to the val­leys, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I have spo­ken in my jeal­ousy and in my fu­ry, be­cause ye have borne the shame of the heath­en:
  7. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I have lift­ed up mine hand, Sure­ly the heath­en that are about you, they shall bear their shame.
  8. But ye, O‍ ‍moun­tains of Is­ra­el, ye shall shoot forth your branch­es, and yield your fruit to my peo­ple of Is­ra­el; for they are at hand to come.
  9. For, be­hold, I am for you, and I will turn un­to you, and ye shall be tilled and sown:
  10. And I will mul­ti­ply men up­on you, all the house of Is­ra­el, even all of it: and the cit­ies shall be in­hab­it­ed, and the wastes shall be builded:
  11. And I will mul­ti­ply up­on you man and beast; and they shall in­crease and bring fruit: and I will set­tle you af­ter your old es­tates, and will do bet­ter un­to you that at your be­gin­nings: and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  12. Yea, I will cause men to walk up­on you, even my peo­ple Is­ra­el; and they shall pos­sess thee, and thou shalt be their in­her­it­ance, and thou shalt no more hence­forth be­reave them of men.
  13. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­cause they say un­to you, Thou land de­vour­est up men, and hast be­reaved thy nations;
  14. Therefore thou shalt de­vour men no more, nei­ther be­reave thy na­tions any more, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  15. Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the heath­en any more, nei­ther shalt thou bear the re­proach of the peo­ple any more, nei­ther shalt thou cause thy na­tions to fall any more, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  16. Moreover the word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  17. Son of man, when the house of Is­ra­el dwelt in their own land, they de­filed it by their own way and by their do­ings: their way was be­fore me as the un­clean­ness of a re­moved‍ ‍woman.
  18. Wherefore I poured my fu­ry up­on them for the blood that they had shed up­on the land, and for their idols where­with they had pol­lut­ed it:
  19. And I scat­tered them among the heath­en, and they were dis­persed through the coun­tries: ac­cord­ing to their way and ac­cord­ing to their do­ings I judged them.
  20. And when they en­tered un­to the heath­en,whith­er they went, they pro­faned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the peo­ple of the ⟨Lord⟩, and are gone forth out of his land.
  21. But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Is­ra­el had pro­faned among the heath­en,whith­er they went.
  22. Therefore say un­to the house of Is­ra­el, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I do not this for your sakes, O‍ ‍house of Is­ra­el, but for mine holy names sake, which ye have pro­faned among the heath­en,whith­er ye went.
  23. And I will sanc­ti­fy my great name, which was pro­faned among the heath­en, which ye have pro­faned in the midst of them; and the heath­en shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, when I shall be sanc­ti­fied in you be­fore their eyes.
  24. For I will take you from among the heath­en, and gath­er you out of all coun­tries, and will bring you in­to your own land.
  25. Then will I sprin­kle clean wa­ter up­on you, and ye shall be clean: from all your fil­thi­ness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.
  26. A new heart al­so will I give you, and a new spir­it will I put with­in you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
  27. And I will put my spir­it with­in you, and cause you to walk in my stat­utes, and ye shall keep my judg­ments, and do them.
  28. And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fa­thers; and ye shall be my peo­ple, and I will be your ⟨God⟩.
  29. I will al­so save you from all your un­clean­ness: and I will call for the corn, and will in­crease it, and lay no fam­ine up­on you.
  30. And I will mul­ti­ply the fruit of the tree, and the in­crease of the field, that ye shall re­ceive no more re­proach of fam­ine among the‍ ‍heath­en.
  31. Then shall ye re­mem­ber your own evil ways, and your do­ings that were not good, and shall lothe(sic)‌your­selves in your own sight for your in­iq­ui­ties and for your abominations.
  32. Not for your sakes do I this, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, be it known un­to you: be ashamed and con­found­ed for your own ways, O‍ ‍house of Israel.
  33. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; In the day that I shall have cleansed you from all your in­iq­ui­ties I will al­so cause you to dwell in the cit­ies, and the wastes shall be builded.
  34. And the des­o­late land shall be tilled, where­as it lay des­o­late in the sight of all that passed by.
  35. And they shall say, This land that was des­o­late is be­come like the gar­den of Eden; and the waste and des­o­late and ruined cit­ies are be­comefencedand are inhabited.
  36. Then the heath­en that are left round about you shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ build the ruined places, and plant that that was des­o­late: I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it, and I will do it.
  37. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; I will yet for this be en­quired of by the house of Is­ra­el, to do it for them; I will in­crease them with men like a flock.
  38. As the holy flock, as the flock of Je­ru­sa­lem in her sol­emn feasts; so shall the waste cit­ies be filled with flocks of men: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍37 
  1. THE HAND OF THE⟨Lord⟩ was up­on me, and car­ried me out in the spir­it of the ⟨Lord⟩, and set me down in the midst of the val­ley which was full of bones.
  2. And caused me to pass by them round about: and, be­hold, there were very ma­ny in the open val­ley; and, lo, they were very dry.
  3. And he said un­to me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I an­swered, O‍ ‍⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, thou knowest.
  4. Again he said un­to me, Proph­e­sy up­on these bones, and say un­to them, O‍ ‍ye dry bones, hear the word of the ⟨Lord⟩.
  5. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩ un­to these bones; Be­hold, I will cause breath to en­ter in­to you, and ye shall live:
  6. And I will lay sin­ews up­on you, and will bring up flesh up­on you, and cov­er you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  7. So I proph­e­sied as I was com­mand­ed: and as I proph­e­sied, there was a noise, and be­hold a shak­ing, and the bones came to­geth­er, bone to his bone.
  8. And when I be­held, lo, the sin­ews and the flesh came up up­on them, and the skin cov­ered them above: but there was no breath in them.
  9. Then said he un­to me, Proph­e­sy un­to the wind, proph­e­sy, son of man, and say to the wind, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Come from the four winds, O‍ ‍breath, and breathe up­on these slain, that they may live.
  10. So I proph­e­sied as he com­mand­ed me, and the breath came in­to them, and they lived, and stood up up­on their feet, an ex­ceed­ing great army.
  11. Then he said un­to me, Son of man, these bones are the whole house of Is­ra­el: be­hold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
  12. Therefore proph­e­sy and say un­to them,Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, O‍ ‍my peo­ple, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of your graves, and bring you in­to the land of Israel.
  13. And ye shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, when I have opened your graves, O‍ ‍my oep­ple, and brought you up out of your graves.
  14. And shall put my spir­it in you, and ye shall live, and I shall place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ have spo­ken it, and per­formed it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩.
  15. The word of the ⟨Lord⟩ came again un­to me, saying,
  16. Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write up­on it, For Ju­dah, and for the chil­dren of Is­ra­el his com­pan­ions: then take an­oth­er stick, and write up­on it, For Jo­seph, the stick of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, and for all the house of Is­ra­el his companions:
  17. And join them one to an­oth­er in­to one stick; and they shall be­come one in thine hand.
  18. And when the chil­dren of thy peo­ple shall speak un­to thee, say­ing, Wilt thou not shew us what thou mean­est by these?
  19. Say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will take the stick of Jo­seph, which is in the hand of E‍′‍-‍phra-‍im, and the tribes of Is­ra­el his fel­lows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Ju­dah, and make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.
  20. And the sticks where­on thou writ­est shall be in thine hand be­fore their eyes.
  21. And say un­to them, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I will take the chil­dren of Is­ra­el from among the heath­en, whith­er they be gone, and will gath­er them on ev­ery side, and bring them in­to their own land:
  22. And I will make them one na­tion in the land up­on the moun­tains of Is­ra­el; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more two na­tions, nei­ther shall they be di­vid­ed in­to two king­doms any more at all:
  23. Neither shall they de­file them­selves any more with their idols, nor with their de­test­a­ble things, nor with any of their trans­gres­sions: but I will save them out of all their dwell­ing plac­es, where­in they have sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my peo­ple, and I will be their ⟨God⟩.
  24. And David my serv­ant shall be king over them; and they all shall have one shep­herd: they shall al­so walk in my judg­ments, and ob­serve my stat­utes, and do them.
  25. And they shall dwell in the land that I have giv­en un­to Ja­cob my serv­ant, where­in your fa­thers have dwelt; and they shall dwell there­in, even they, and their chil­dren for ever: and my serv­ant David shall be their prince for ever.
  26. Moreover I will make a cov­en­ant of peace with them; it shall be an ever­last­ing cov­en­ant with them: and I will place them, and mul­ti­ply them, and will set my sanc­tu­ary in the midst of them for evermore.
  27. My tab­er­na­cle al­so shall be with them: yea, I will be their ⟨God⟩, and they shall be my people.
  28. And the heath­en shall know that I the ⟨Lord⟩ do sanc­ti­fy Is­ra­el, when my sanc­tu­ary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍38 
  1. AND THE WORD OF‍ ‍the ⟨Lord⟩ came un­to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Ma‍′‍-‍gog, the chief prince of Me‍′‍-‍shech and Tu‍′‍-‍bal, and proph­e­sy against him,
  3. And say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, O‍ ‍Gog, the chief prince of Me‍′‍-‍shech and Tu‍′‍-‍bal:
  4. And I will turn thee back, and put hooks in­to thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth, and all thine ar­my, hors­es and horse­men, all of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great com­pa­ny withbuck­lers and shields, all of them hand­ling swords:
  5. Persia, E-‍thi-‍o‍′‍-‍pi-‍a, and Lib‍′‍-‍y-‍a with them; all of them with shield and helmet:
  6. Go‍′‍-‍mer, and all his bands; the house of To-‍gar‍′‍-‍mah of the north quar­ters, and all his bands: and ma­ny peo­ple with thee.
  7. Be thou pre­pared, and pre­pare for thy­self, thou, and all thy com­pa­ny that are as­sem­bled un­to thee, and be thou a guard un­to them.
  8. After ma­ny days thou shalt be vis­it­ed: in the lat­ter years thou shalt come in­to the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gath­ered out of ma­ny peo­ple, against the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, which have been al­ways waste: but it is brought forth out of the na­tions, and they shall dwell safe­ly all of them.
  9. Thou shalt as­cend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a cloud to cov­er the land, thou, and all thy bands, and ma­ny peo­ple with thee.
  10. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; It shall al­so come to pass, that at the same time shall things come in­to thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil thought:
  11. And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of un­walled vil­lag­es; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them dwell­ing with­out walls, and hav­ing nei­ther bars nor gates,
  12. To take a spoil, and to‍ ‍take a prey; to turn thine hand up­on the des­o­late plac­es that are now in­hab­it­ed, and up­on the peo­ple that are gath­ered out of the na­tions, which have got­ten cat­tle and goods, that dwell in the midst of the land.
  13. She‍′‍-‍ba, and De‍′‍-‍dan and the mer­chants of Tar‍′‍-‍shish, with all the young li­ons there­of, shall say un­to thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast thou gath­ered thy com­pa­ny to‍ ‍take a prey? to car­ry away sil­ver and gold, to take away cat­tle and goods, to take a great spoil?
  14. Therefore, son of man, proph­e­sy and say un­to Gog, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; In that day when my peo­ple of Is­ra­el dwell­eth safe­ly, shalt thou not know it?
  15. And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts, thou, and ma­ny peo­ple with thee, all of them rid­ing up­on hors­es, a great com­pa­ny, and a migh­ty army:
  16. And thou shalt come up against my peo­ple of Is­ra­el, as a cloud to cov­er the land; it shall be in the lat­ter days, and I will bring thee against my land, that the heath­en may know me, when I shall be sanc­ti­fied in thee, O‍ ‍Gog, be­fore their eyes.
  17. Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Art thou he of whom I have spo­ken in old time by my serv­ants the proph­ets of Is­ra­el, which proph­e­sied in those days ma­ny years that I would bring thee against them?
  18. And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come against the land of Is­ra­el, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩, that my fu­ry shall come up in my face.
  19. For in my jeal­ousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spo­ken, Sure­ly in that day there shall be a great shak­ing in the land of Israel:
  20. So that the fish­es of the sea, and the fowls of the (first) heav­en, and the beasts of the field, and all creep­ing things that creep up­on the earth, and all the men that are up­on the face of the earth, shall shake at my pres­ence, and the moun­tains shall be thrown down, and the steep plac­es shall fall, and ev­ery wall shall fall to the ground.
  21. And I will call for a sword against him through­out all my moun­tains, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩: ev­ery mans sword shall be against his brother.
  22. And I will plead against him with pes­ti­lence and with blood; and I will rain up­on him, and up­on his bands, and up­on the ma­ny peo­ple that are with him, and over­flow­ing rain, and great hail­stones, fire, and brimstone.
  23. Thus will I mag­ni­fy my­self, and sanc­ti­fy my­self; and I will be known in the eyes of ma­ny na­tions, and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍39 
  1. THEREFORE, THOU  SON of man, proph­e­sy against Gog, and say, Thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩ ⟨God⟩; Be­hold, I am against thee, O‍ ‍Gog, the chief prince of Me‍′‍-‍shech and Tu‍′‍-‍bal:
  2. And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee up­on the moun­tains of Israel:
  3. And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine ar­rows to fall out of thy right hand.
  4. Thou shalt fall up­on the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, thou, and all thy bands, and the peo­ple that is with thee: I will give thee un­to the rav­en­ous birds of ev­ery sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.
  5. Thou shalt fall up­on the open field: for I have spo­ken it, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  6. And I will send a fire oon Ma‍′‍-‍gog, and among them that dwell care­less­ly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩.
  7. So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my peo­ple Is­ra­el; and I will not let them pol­lute my holy name any more: and the heath­en shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩, the Holy One in Israel.
  8. Behold, it is come, and it is done, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; this is the day where­of I have spoken.
  9. And they that dwell in the cit­ies of Is­ra­el shall go forth, and shall set on fire and burn the weap­ons, both the shields and the buck­lers, the bows and the ar­rows, and the hand­staves, and the spears, and they shall burn them with fire sev­en years:
  10. So that they shall take no wood out of the field, nei­ther cut down any out of the for­ests; for they shall burn the weap­ons with fire: and they shall spoil those that spoiled them, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  11. ⟨•And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give un­to Gog a place there of graves in Is­ra­el, the val­ley of the pass­en­gers on‍ ‍the east of the (Dead)S‍ea: and it shall stop the nos­es of the pass­en­gers: and there shall they bury Gog and all his mul­ti­tude: and they shall call it The val­ley of Ha‍′‍-‍mon–‍gog.
  12. And sev­en months shall the house of Is­ra­el be bur­y­ing of them, that they may cleanse the land (of radiation).
  13. Yea, all the peo­ple of the land shall bury them; and it shall be to them a re­nown the day that I shall be glo­ri­fied, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  14. And they shall sev­er out men of con­tin­u­al em­ploy­ment, pass­ing through the land to bury with the pass­en­gers those that re­main up­on the face of the earth, to cleanse it (of ra­di­a­tion): af­ter the end of sev­en months shall they‍ ‍search.
  15. And the pass­en­gersthat pass through the land, when any seeth a mans bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the bur­i­ers have bur­ied it in the val­ley of Ha‍′‍-‍mon–‍gog.
  16. And al­so the name of the city shall beHa-‍mo‍′‍-‍nah. Thus shall they cleanse the land (of radiation).•⟩
  17. And, thou son of man, thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Speak un­to ev­ery feath­ered fowl, and to ev­ery beast of the field, As­sem­ble your­selves on ev­ery side to my sac­ri­fice that I do sac­ri­fice for you, even a great sac­ri­fice up­on the moun­tains of Is­ra­el, that ye may eat flesh, and drink blood.
  18. Ye shall eat the flesh of the migh­ty, and drink the blood of the princ­es of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bull­ocks, all of them fat­lings of Ba‍′‍-‍shan.
  19. And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye be drunk­en, of my sac­ri­fice which I have sac­ri­ficed for you.
  20. Thus ye shall be filled at my ta­ble with hors­es and char­i­ots, with migh­ty men, and with all men of war, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
  21. And I will set my glo­ry among the heath­en, and all the heath­en shall see my judg­ment that I have ex­e­cut­ed, and my hand that I have laid up­on them.
  22. So the house of Is­ra­el shall know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ their ⟨God⟩ from that day and forward.
  23. And the heath­en shall know that the house of Is­ra­el went in­to cap­tiv­ity for their in­iq­ui­ty: be­cause they tres­passed against me, there­fore hid I my face from them, and gave them in­to the hand of their en­e­mies: so fell they all by the sword.
  24. According to their un­clean­ness and ac­cord­ing to their trans­gres­sions have I done un­to them, and hid my face from them.
  25. Therefore thus sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; Now will I bring again the cap­tiv­i­ty of Ja­cob, and have mer­cy up­on the whole house of Is­ra­el, and will be jeal­ous for my holy‍ ‍name;
  26. After that they have borne their shame, and all their tres­pass­es where­by they have tres­passed against me, when they dwelt safe­ly in their land, and none made them afraid.
  27. When I have brought them again from the peo­ple, and gath­ered them out of their en­e­mies’ lands, and am sanc­ti­fied in them in the sight of ma­ny‍ ‍na­tions;
  28. Then shall they know that I am the ⟨Lord⟩ their ⟨God⟩, which caused them to be led in­to cap­tiv­i­ty among the heath­en: but I have gath­ered them un­to their own land, and have left none of them any more there.
  29. Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have poured out my spir­it up­on the house of Is­ra­el, sa­ith the ⟨Lord⟩‍ ‍⟨God⟩.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍40 
  1. IN THE FIVE AND twen­ti­eth year of our cap­tiv­ity, in the be­gin­ning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the four­teenth year af­ter that the city was smit­ten, in the self­same day the hand of the ⟨Lord⟩ was up­on me, and brought me thither.
  2. In the vi­sions of ⟨God⟩ brought he me in­to the land of Is­ra­el, and set me up­on a very high moun­tain, by which was as the frame of a city on the south.
  3. And he brought me thith­er, and, be­hold, there was a man, whose ap­pear­ance was like the ap­pear­ance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand, and a meas­ur­ing reed; and he stood in the gate.
  4. And the man said un­to me, Son of man, be­hold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart up­on all that I shall shew thee; for to the in­tent that I might shew them un­to thee art thou brought hith­er: de­clare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.
  5. And be­hold a wall on the out­side of the house round about, and in the mans hand a meas­ur­ing reed of six cu­bitslong by the cu­bit and an hand breadth: so he meas­ured the breadth of the build­ing, one reed; and the height, one reed.
  6. Then came he un­to the gate which look­eth to­ward the east, and went up the stairs there­of, and meas­ured the thres­hold of the gate, which wasone reed broad; and the oth­er thres­hold of the gate, which wasone reed‍ ‍broad.
  7. And ev­ery lit­tle cham­ber wasone reed broad; and be­tween the lit­tle cham­bers werefive cu­bits; and the thres­hold of the gate by the porch of the gate with­in wasone reed.
  8. He meas­ured al­so the porch of the gate with­in, one reed.
  9. Then meas­ured the porch of the gate, wereeight cu­bits; and the posts there­of, two cu­bits; and the porch of the gate was inward.
  10. And the (three) lit­tle cham­bers of the gate east­ward werethree(cu­bits) on this side and three(cu­bits) on that side; they three were of one meas­ure: and the posts had one meas­ure on this side and on that side.
  11. And he meas­ured the breadth of the en­try of the gate, ten cu­bits;and the length of the gate, thir­teen cu­bits.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍41 
  1. AFTERWARD HE BROUGHT me to the tem­ple, and meas­ured the posts, six cu­bits broad on the one side, and six cu­bits broad on the oth­er side, which was the breadth of the tabernacle.
  2. And the breadth of the door wasten cu­bits; and the sides of the door werefive cu­bits on the one side, and five cu­bits on the oth­er side: and he meas­ured the length there­of, for­ty cu­bits: and the breadth, twen­ty cu­bits.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍42 
  1. THEN HE BROUGHT ME forth in­to the ut­ter court, the way to­ward the north: and he brought me in­to the cham­ber that was over against the sep­a­rate place, and which was be­fore the build­ing to­ward the north.
  2. Before the length of an hun­dred cu­bitswas the north door, and the breadth wasfif­ty cu­bits.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍43 
  1. AFTERWARD HE BROUGHT me to the gate, even the gate that look­eth to­ward the east:
  2. And, be­hold, the glo­ry of the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el came from the way of the east: and his voice was like a noise of ma­ny wa­ters: and the earth shined with his glory.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍44 
  1. THEN HE BROUGHT ME back the way of the gate of the out­ward sanc­tu­ary which look­eth to­ward the east; and it was shut.
  2. Then said the ⟨Lord⟩ un­to me; This gate shall be shut, it shall not be opened, and no man shall en­ter in by it; be­cause the ⟨Lord⟩, the ⟨God⟩ of Is­ra­el, hath en­tered in by it, there­fore it shall be shut.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍45 
  1. MOREOVER, WHEN YE shall di­vide by lot the land for in­her­it­ance, ye shall of­fer an obla­tion un­to the ⟨Lord⟩, an holy por­tion of the land: the length shall be the length of‍ ‍five and twen­ty thou­sand reeds, and the breadth shall beten thou­sand (reeds). This shall be holy in all the bor­ders there­of round about.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍46 
  1. THUS SA­ITH THE ⟨Lord⟩⟨God⟩; The gate of the in­ner court that look­eth to­ward the east shall be shut the six work­ing days; but on the sab­bath it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.
  2. And the prince shall en­ter by the way of the porch of that gate with­out, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall pre­pare his burnt of­fer­ing and his peace of­fer­ings, and he shall wor­ship at the thresh­old of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be shut un­til the evening.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍47 
  1. AFTERWARD HE BROUGHT me again un­to the door of the house; and, be­hold, wa­ters is­sued out from un­der the thresh­old of the house east­ward: for the fore­front of the house stood to­ward the east, and the wa­ters came down from un­der the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.
  2. Then brought he me out of the way of the gate north­ward, and led me about the way with­out un­to the ut­ter gate by the way that look­eth east­ward; and, be­hold, there ran out wa­ters on the right side.
Ezekiel‍ ‍Chapter‍ ‍48 
  1. NOW THESE ARE THE names of the tribes. From the north end to the coast of the way of Heth‍′‍-‍lon, as one go­eth to Ha‍′‍-‍math, Ha‍′‍-‍zar–‍e‍′‍-‍nan, the bor­der of Da­mas­cus north­ward, to the coast of Ha‍′‍-‍ath; for these are his sides east and west; a por­tion for Dan.
  2. And by the bor­der of Dan, from the east side un­to the west side, a por­tion for‍ ‍Asher.
