Ezekiel 6
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, 2“Son of man, set your face toward mountains of Israel, and prophesy concerning them: 3And you have said, Mountains of Israel, "" Hear a word of Lord YHWH! Thus said Lord YHWH, "" To the mountains, and to the hills, "" To the streams, and to the valleys: Behold, I am bringing in a sword against you, "" And I have destroyed your high places. 4And your altars have been desolated, "" And your images have been broken, "" And I have caused your wounded to fall before your idols, 5And I have put the carcasses of the sons of Israel before their idols, "" And I have scattered your bones around your altars. 6In all your dwellings the cities are laid waste, "" And the high places are desolate, "" So that your altars are dry and desolate, "" Your idols have broken and ceased, "" And your images have been cut down, "" And your works have been blotted out. 7And the wounded has fallen in your midst, "" And you have known that I [am] YHWH.

8And I have caused [some] to remain, "" In their being for you the escaped of the sword among nations, "" In your being scattered through lands. 9And your escaped have remembered Me among nations, "" To where they have been taken captive, "" Because I have been broken with their heart that is going whoring, "" That has turned aside from off Me, "" And with their eyes they are going whoring after their idols, "" And they have been loathsome in their own faces, "" For the evils that they have done—all their abominations. 10And they have known that I [am] YHWH, "" I have not spoken to do this evil to them for nothing.

11Thus said Lord YHWH: Strike with your palm, and stamp with your foot, "" And say: Aah! For all the evil abominations of the house of Israel, "" Which falls by sword, by famine, and by pestilence. 12The far-off dies by pestilence, "" And the near falls by sword, "" And the left and the besieged dies by famine, "" And I have completed My fury on them. 13And you have known that I [am] YHWH, "" In their wounded being in the midst of their idols, "" Around their altars, "" On every high hill, on all tops of mountains, "" And under every green tree, and under every thick oak, "" The place where they gave refreshing fragrance to all their idols. 14And I have stretched out My hand against them, "" And have made the land a desolation, "" Even a desolation from the wilderness to Diblath, "" In all their dwellings, "" And they have known that I [am] YHWH!”
