Ezekiel 8
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And it was in the sixth year, in the fifth day of the sixth month, I had been sitting in my house, and the Elders of Judea were sitting before me, and there the hand of THE LORD OF LORDS fell upon me 2And I saw, and behold, the likeness as the appearance of fire from the appearance of the waist and below, fire, and from his waist and above, I saw as the appearance of brightness and as the appearance of God 3And he reached with the likeness of a hand and he took me by the locks of my head, and The Spirit picked me up between the Earth and Heaven, and took me to Jerusalem in a vision of God to the entrance of the door of the corner that looks to the north, for there stood the statue of lust 4And behold, there was the glory of the God of Israel, like the vision that I saw in the plain

5And he said to me: “Son of man, lift your eyes to the road of the north.” And I lifted my eyes to the road north, and behold, from the north side of the eastern gate stood the statue of lust at its entrance 6And he said to me: “Son of man, have you seen what great abominations they do, which they of the house of Israel are doing? For they have gone far away from my holy place. Again you shall turn, you shall see the great abominations that they are doing”

7And he brought me into the doorway of the courtyard, and I saw one hole in the wall 8And he said to me: “Son of man, dig in the wall.” And I dug in the wall and I found a doorway 9And he said to me: “Enter and see the defilement and the evil that they are doing here” 10And I entered and I saw every form of creepers and of beasts and of abominable things and all the worshiped things of the house of Israel that are portrayed on the wall around 11And seventy men of the Elders of the house of Israel, and Yazaniah son of Shaphan was standing among them, and those had been standing before him, and a man with his censer in his hand, and incense of the smoke of sweet spices went up 12And he said to me: “See, son of man, the thing that the Elders of the house of Israel are doing in darkness, a man in his secret closet, and they were saying, ‘LORD JEHOVAH does not see us, because LORD JEHOVAH has left the land’” 13And he said to me again: “Turn, you shall see the great abomination that they are committing”

14And he brought me into the entrance of the door of the house of LORD JEHOVAH that was in the north, and there I saw women sitting and weeping for Tammuza 15And he said to me: “See, son of man, again you shall turn, you shall see abominations that are greater than these”

16And he brought me into the courtyard of the inner house of LORD JEHOVAH, and I saw in the door of the temple of LORD JEHOVAH, between the porch and the altar, about twenty and five men stood and their backs were against the temple of LORD JEHOVAH and their faces toward the East, and they arose early and they worshipped the sun 17And he said to me: “See, son of man! Is this abomination that they do here a little thing to those of the house of Yehuda? For they have filled the land with evil and they have turned to anger me, and they snort with their nostrils 18Also I shall work in anger and my eyes shall not have pity, and I shall not be merciful, and they shall cry in my ear with a loud voice and I shall not listen to them”
