Ezekiel 7
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, “And you, son of man, "" Thus said Lord YHWH to the ground of Israel: 2An end, the end has come on the four corners of the land. 3Now [is] the end for you, "" And I have sent My anger on you, "" And judged you according to your ways, "" And set all your abominations against you. 4And My eye has no pity on you, nor do I spare, "" For I set your ways against you, "" And your abominations are in your midst, "" And you have known that I [am] YHWH.

5Thus said Lord YHWH: Calamity, a single calamity, behold, it has come. 6An end has come, the end has come, "" It has awoken for you, behold, it has come. 7The circlet has come to you, O inhabitant of the land! The time has come, a day of trouble [is] near, "" And not the shouting of mountains. 8Now shortly I pour out My fury on you, "" And have completed My anger against you, "" And judged you according to your ways, "" And set all your abominations against you. 9And My eye does not pity, nor do I spare, "" I give to you according to your ways, "" And your abominations are in your midst, "" And you have known that [it is] I, YHWH, striking.

10Behold, the day, behold, it has come, "" The circlet has gone forth, "" The rod has blossomed, the pride has flourished. 11The violence has risen to a rod of wickedness, "" There is none of them, nor of their multitude, "" Nor of their noise, nor is there wailing for them. 12The time has come, the day has arrived, "" The buyer does not rejoice, "" And the seller does not become a mourner, "" For wrath [is] to all its multitude. 13For the seller does not turn to the sold thing, "" And yet their life [is] among the living, "" For the vision [is] to all its multitude, "" It does not turn back, "" And none strengthens his life by his iniquity.

14They have blown with a horn to prepare the whole, "" And none is going to battle, "" For My wrath [is] to all its multitude. 15The sword [is] outside, "" And the pestilence and the famine within, "" He who is in a field dies by sword, "" And he who is in a city—Famine and pestilence devour him. 16And their fugitives have escaped away, "" And they have been on the mountains "" As doves of the valleys, "" All of them making a noise—each for his iniquity. 17All the hands are feeble, and all knees go [as] waters. 18And they have girded on sackcloth, "" And trembling has covered them, "" And shame [is] on all faces, "" And baldness on all their heads. 19They cast their silver into out-places, "" And their gold becomes impurity. Their silver and gold are not able to deliver them, "" In a day of the wrath of YHWH, "" They do not satisfy their soul, "" And they do not fill their bowels, "" For it has been the stumbling-block of their iniquity.

20As for the beauty of his ornament, "" He set it for excellence, "" And the images of their abominations, "" Their detestable things—they made in it, "" Therefore I have given it to them for impurity, 21And I have given it into the hand of the strangers for a prey, "" And to the wicked of the land for a spoil, "" And they have defiled it. 22And I have turned My face from them, "" And they have defiled My hidden place, "" Indeed, destroyers have come into it, and defiled it.

23Make the chain; for the land "" Has been full of bloody judgments, "" And the city has been full of violence. 24And I have brought in the wicked of the nations, "" And they have possessed their houses, "" And I have caused the excellence of the strong to cease, "" And those sanctifying them have been defiled. 25Destruction has come, "" And they have sought peace, and there is none. 26Disaster comes on disaster, and report is on report, "" And they have sought a vision from a prophet, "" And law perishes from [the] priest, "" And counsel from [the] elderly, 27The king becomes a mourner, "" And a prince puts on desolation, "" And the hands of the people of the land are troubled, "" I deal with them from their own way, "" And I judge them with their own judgments, "" And they have known that I [am] YHWH!”
