EZE

 

EZE 1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the
fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar,
that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

EZE 1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king
Jehoiachin's captivity,

EZE 1:3 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the son
of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand
of the LORD was there upon him.

EZE 1:4 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.

EZE 1:5 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.

EZE 1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

EZE 1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was like
the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished
brass.

EZE 1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four sides;
and they four had their faces and their wings.

EZE 1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when they
went; they went every one straight forward.

EZE 1:10 As for 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.

EZE 1:11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward; two
wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their bodies.

EZE 1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit was to
go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

EZE 1:13 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.

EZE 1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of a
flash of lightning.

EZE 1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the earth
by the living creatures, with his four faces.

EZE 1:16 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 were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

EZE 1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they turned not
when they went.

EZE 1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful; and
their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

EZE 1:19 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.

EZE 1:20 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.

EZE 1:21 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.

EZE 1:22 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.

EZE 1:23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, 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.

EZE 1:24 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 wings.

EZE 1:25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their heads,
when they stood, and had let down their wings.

EZE 1:26 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.

EZE 1:27 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.

EZE 1:28 As the appearance of the bow 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.

EZE 2:1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak
unto thee.

EZE 2:2 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.

EZE 2:3 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 very day.

EZE 2:4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto
them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 2:5 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.

EZE 2:6 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.

EZE 2:7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or
whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.

EZE 2:8 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 I give
thee.

EZE 2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll
of a book was therein;

EZE 2:10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without:
and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

EZE 3:1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat this
roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

EZE 3:2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

EZE 3:3 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.

EZE 3:4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of
Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

EZE 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard
language, but to the house of Israel;

EZE 3:6 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.

EZE 3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not
hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.

EZE 3:8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy
forehead strong against their foreheads.

EZE 3:9 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.

EZE 3:10 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.

EZE 3:11 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 forbear.

EZE 3:12 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.

EZE 3:13 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.

EZE 3:14 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.

EZE 3:15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the
river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished
among them seven days.

EZE 3:16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of the
LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 3:17 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.

EZE 3:18 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.

EZE 3:19 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.

EZE 3:20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness, and
commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block 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.

EZE 3:21 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.

EZE 3:22 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.

EZE 3:23 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 Chebar: and
I fell on my face.

EZE 3:24 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.

EZE 3:25 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:

EZE 3:26 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.

EZE 3:27 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.

EZE 4:1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and
pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:

EZE 4:2 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.

EZE 4:3 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.

EZE 4:4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of
Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon
it thou shalt bear their iniquity.

EZE 4:5 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.

EZE 4:6 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.

EZE 4:7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and
thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it.

EZE 4:8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not turn thee
from one side to another, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.

EZE 4:9 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.

EZE 4:10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels
a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.

EZE 4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin:
from time to time shalt thou drink.

EZE 4:12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with
dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

EZE 4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their
defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.

EZE 4:14 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.

EZE 4:15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's
dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.

EZE 4:16 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:

EZE 4:17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with
another, and consume away for their iniquity.

EZE 5:1 And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber's
razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take
thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair.

EZE 5:2 Thou shalt burn with fire a third part 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.

EZE 5:3 Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy
skirts.

EZE 5:4 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.

EZE 5:5 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.

EZE 5:6 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.

EZE 5:7 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;

EZE 5:8 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.

EZE 5:9 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.

EZE 5:10 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.

EZE 5:11 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.

EZE 5:12 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.

EZE 5:13 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.

EZE 5:14 Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the nations
that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.

EZE 5:15 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.

EZE 5:16 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:

EZE 5:17 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.

EZE 6:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 6:2 Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy
against them,

EZE 6:3 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.

EZE 6:4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be broken:
and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.

EZE 6:5 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.

EZE 6:6 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.

EZE 6:7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I
am the LORD.

EZE 6:8 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.

EZE 6:9 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 themselves for the evils
which they have committed in all their abominations.

EZE 6:10 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.

EZE 6:11 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.

EZE 6:12 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 besieged shall die by
the famine: thus will I accomplish my fury upon them.

EZE 6:13 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.

EZE 6:14 So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land desolate,
yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their
habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 7:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 7:2 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.

EZE 7:3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon
thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon
thee all thine abominations.

EZE 7:4 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.

EZE 7:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.

EZE 7:6 An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is
come.

EZE 7:7 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.

EZE 7:8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine
anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will
recompense thee for all thine abominations.

EZE 7:9 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.

EZE 7:10 Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the
rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

EZE 7:11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them shall
remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of their's: neither shall there be
wailing for them.

EZE 7:12 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.

EZE 7:13 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.

EZE 7:14 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.

EZE 7:15 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.

EZE 7:16 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.

EZE 7:17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.

EZE 7:18 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.

EZE 7:19 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 satisfy their souls, neither
fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

EZE 7:20 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.

EZE 7:21 And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and
to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.

EZE 7:22 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.

EZE 7:23 Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is
full of violence.

EZE 7:24 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.

EZE 7:25 Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall be
none.

EZE 7:26 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.

EZE 7:27 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.

EZE 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.

EZE 8:2 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.

EZE 8:3 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 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.

EZE 8:4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according
to the vision that I saw in the plain.

EZE 8:5 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.

EZE 8:6 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? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt
see greater abominations.

EZE 8:7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold
a hole in the wall.

EZE 8:8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had
digged in the wall, behold a door.

EZE 8:9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that
they do here.

EZE 8:10 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 upon
the wall round about.

EZE 8:11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house
of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with
every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

EZE 8:12 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.

EZE 8:13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater
abominations that they do.

EZE 8:14 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 Tammuz.

EZE 8:15 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.

EZE 8:16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD's 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.

EZE 8:17 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.

EZE 8:18 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.

EZE 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 man with his destroying
weapon in his hand.

EZE 9:2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth
toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man
among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and
they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar.

EZE 9:3 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 writer's inkhorn by his side;

EZE 9:4 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.

EZE 9:5 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:

EZE 9:6 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.

EZE 9:7 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.

EZE 9:8 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?

EZE 9:9 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
seeth not.

EZE 9:10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have
pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.

EZE 9:11 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.

EZE 10:1 Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the head
of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as the
appearance of the likeness of a throne.

EZE 10:2 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 cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went in in
my sight.

EZE 10:3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when the man
went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.

EZE 10:4 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 LORD's glory.

EZE 10:5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the outer
court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

EZE 10:6 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 cherubims;
then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.

EZE 10:7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the cherubims
unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and put it
into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and went out.

EZE 10:8 And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man's hand under
their wings.

EZE 10:9 And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubims, 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.

EZE 10:10 And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as if a
wheel had been in the midst of a wheel.

EZE 10:11 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.

EZE 10:12 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.

EZE 10:13 As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O wheel.

EZE 10:14 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.

EZE 10:15 And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature that I
saw by the river of Chebar.

EZE 10:16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when the
cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same wheels
also turned not from beside them.

EZE 10:17 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.

EZE 10:18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of the
house, and stood over the cherubims.

EZE 10:19 And the cherubims 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 LORD's house; and the
glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

EZE 10:20 This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel by
the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.

EZE 10:21 Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and the
likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.

EZE 10:22 And the likeness of their faces was the same faces which I saw by
the river of Chebar, their appearances and themselves: they went every one
straight forward.

EZE 11:1 Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east gate
of the LORD's house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of the
gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur, and
Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.

EZE 11:2 Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devise
mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:

EZE 11:3 Which say, It is not near; let us build houses: this city is the
caldron, and we be the flesh.

EZE 11:4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man.

EZE 11:5 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.

EZE 11:6 Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the
streets thereof with the slain.

EZE 11:7 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.

EZE 11:8 Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith
the Lord GOD.

EZE 11:9 And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you into
the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.

EZE 11:10 Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of
Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 11:11 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:

EZE 11:12 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.

EZE 11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of
Benaiah 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?

EZE 11:14 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 11:15 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.

EZE 11:16 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.

EZE 11:17 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.

EZE 11:18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the
detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

EZE 11:19 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:

EZE 11:20 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.

EZE 11:21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their
detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon
their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 11:22 Then did the cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels beside
them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

EZE 11:23 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.

EZE 11:24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the
Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I
had seen went up from me.

EZE 11:25 Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that the LORD
had shewed me.

EZE 12:1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,

EZE 12:2 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.

EZE 12:3 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.

EZE 12:4 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.

EZE 12:5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.

EZE 12:6 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.

EZE 12:7 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.

EZE 12:8 And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

EZE 12:9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said
unto thee, What doest thou?

EZE 12:10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden concerneth
the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.

EZE 12:11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto
them: they shall remove and go into captivity.

EZE 12:12 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.

EZE 12:13 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 Chaldeans; yet
shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

EZE 12:14 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.

EZE 12:15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them
among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

EZE 12:16 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.

EZE 12:17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

EZE 12:18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with
trembling and with carefulness;

EZE 12:19 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.

EZE 12:20 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.

EZE 12:21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 12:22 Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of Israel,
saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?

EZE 12:23 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.

EZE 12:24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination
within the house of Israel.

EZE 12:25 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.

EZE 12:26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying.

EZE 12:27 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.

EZE 12:28 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.

EZE 13:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 13:2 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;

EZE 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that follow
their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

EZE 13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

EZE 13:5 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.

EZE 13:6 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.

EZE 13:7 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?

EZE 13:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken vanity, and
seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 13:9 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.

EZE 13:10 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:

EZE 13:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered morter, that it shall
fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones, shall
fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

EZE 13:12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you, Where is
the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?

EZE 13:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it 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.

EZE 13:14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with untempered
morter, 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.

EZE 13:15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them that
have daubed it with untempered morter, and will say unto you, The wall is no
more, neither they that daubed it;

EZE 13:16 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.

EZE 13:17 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,

EZE 13:18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew 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?

EZE 13:19 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?

EZE 13:20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your
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.

EZE 13:21 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.

EZE 13:22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad, whom
I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he should
not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

EZE 13:23 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.

EZE 14:1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.

EZE 14:2 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 14:3 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?

EZE 14:4 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;

EZE 14:5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they
are all estranged from me through their idols.

EZE 14:6 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.

EZE 14:7 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 a prophet to enquire of him concerning me; I the LORD
will answer him by myself:

EZE 14:8 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.

EZE 14:9 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.

EZE 14:10 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;

EZE 14:11 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.

EZE 14:12 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,

EZE 14:13 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:

EZE 14:14 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.

EZE 14:15 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:

EZE 14:16 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.

EZE 14:17 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:

EZE 14:18 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.

EZE 14:19 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:

EZE 14:20 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.

EZE 14:21 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?

EZE 14:22 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.

EZE 14:23 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.

EZE 15:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 15:2 Son of man, what is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a
branch which is among the trees of the forest?

EZE 15:3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a pin of
it to hang any vessel thereon?

EZE 15:4 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?

EZE 15:5 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?

EZE 15:6 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.

EZE 15:7 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.

EZE 15:8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed a
trespass, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 16:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 16:2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

EZE 16:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and thy
nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy mother
an Hittite.

EZE 16:4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel was not
cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not salted
at all, nor swaddled at all.

EZE 16:5 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 of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

EZE 16:6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own blood,
I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto thee
when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

EZE 16:7 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 thou wast naked and
bare.

EZE 16:8 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.

EZE 16:9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I throughly washed away thy blood
from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

EZE 16:10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with badgers'
skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee with silk.

EZE 16:11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon thy
hands, and a chain on thy neck.

EZE 16:12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears, and a
beautiful crown upon thine head.

EZE 16:13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment was of
fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour, and
honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper
into a kingdom.

EZE 16:14 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.

EZE 16:15 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.

EZE 16:16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high places
with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things shall
not come, neither shall it be so.

EZE 16:17 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,

EZE 16:18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and thou
hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

EZE 16:19 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.

EZE 16:20 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,

EZE 16:21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause them
to pass through the fire for them?

EZE 16:22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not
remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast
polluted in thy blood.

EZE 16:23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto thee!
saith the LORD GOD;)

EZE 16:24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast made
thee an high place in every street.

EZE 16:25 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.

EZE 16:26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy
neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me
to anger.

EZE 16:27 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 Philistines, which are ashamed of thy lewd
way.

EZE 16:28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because thou
wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet couldest
not be satisfied.

EZE 16:29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of Canaan
unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied therewith.

EZE 16:30 How weak is thine heart, saith the LORD GOD, seeing thou doest all
these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

EZE 16:31 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;

EZE 16:32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers
instead of her husband!

EZE 16:33 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.

EZE 16:34 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.

EZE 16:35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:

EZE 16:36 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;

EZE 16:37 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.

EZE 16:38 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.

EZE 16:39 And I will also give thee into 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.

EZE 16:40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they shall
stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

EZE 16:41 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.

EZE 16:42 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.

EZE 16:43 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 abominations.

EZE 16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb against
thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

EZE 16:45 Thou art thy mother's daughter, that lotheth her husband and her
children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which lothed their husbands
and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an Amorite.

EZE 16:46 And thine elder sister is Samaria, 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.

EZE 16:47 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.

EZE 16:48 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.

EZE 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister 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.

EZE 16:50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:
therefore I took them away as I saw good.

EZE 16:51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast
multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters
in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

EZE 16:52 Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame for
thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more
righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in
that thou hast justified thy sisters.

EZE 16:53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of Sodom and
her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then will I
bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:

EZE 16:54 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.

EZE 16:55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to their
former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their former
estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

EZE 16:56 For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day of
thy pride,

EZE 16:57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy reproach
of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the daughters
of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

EZE 16:58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the LORD.

EZE 16:59 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.

EZE 16:60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days of
thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

EZE 16:61 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.

EZE 16:62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that
I am the LORD:

EZE 16:63 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.

EZE 17:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the house of
Israel;

EZE 17:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; A great eagle with great wings,
longwinged, full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto
Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:

EZE 17:4 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.

EZE 17:5 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.

EZE 17:6 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.

EZE 17:7 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.

EZE 17:8 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.

EZE 17:9 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.

EZE 17:10 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.

EZE 17:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 17:12 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;

EZE 17:13 And hath taken of the king's seed, and made a covenant with him, and
hath taken an oath of him: he hath also taken the mighty of the land:

EZE 17:14 That the kingdom might be base, that it might not lift itself up,
but that by keeping of his covenant it might stand.

EZE 17:15 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?

EZE 17:16 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.

EZE 17:17 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:

EZE 17:18 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.

EZE 17:19 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.

EZE 17:20 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.

EZE 17:21 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.

EZE 17:22 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also take of the highest branch
of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his young
twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:

EZE 17:23 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.

EZE 17:24 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.

EZE 18:1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,

EZE 18:2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of Israel,
saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth are set
on edge?

EZE 18:3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any more to
use this proverb in Israel.

EZE 18:4 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.

EZE 18:5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,

EZE 18:6 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
neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,

EZE 18:7 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;

EZE 18:8 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,

EZE 18:9 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal
truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 18:10 If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and that
doeth the like to any one of these things,

EZE 18:11 And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten upon the
mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,

EZE 18:12 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,

EZE 18:13 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.

EZE 18:14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins which
he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,

EZE 18:15 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 neighbour's
wife,

EZE 18:16 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,

EZE 18:17 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.

EZE 18:18 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.

EZE 18:19 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.

EZE 18:20 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.

EZE 18:21 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.

EZE 18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not be
mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

EZE 18:23 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?

EZE 18:24 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.

EZE 18:25 Yet ye say, The way of the LORD is not equal. Hear now, O house of
Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?

EZE 18:26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done
shall he die.

EZE 18:27 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.

EZE 18:28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his transgressions
that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

EZE 18:29 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?

EZE 18:30 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.

EZE 18:31 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?

EZE 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith the
Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

EZE 19:1 Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,

EZE 19:2 And say, What is thy mother? A lioness: she lay down among lions, she
nourished her whelps among young lions.

EZE 19:3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion, and it
learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.

EZE 19:4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and they
brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt.

EZE 19:5 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.

EZE 19:6 And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young lion, and
learned to catch the prey, and devoured men.

EZE 19:7 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.

EZE 19:8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the provinces,
and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit.

EZE 19:9 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.

EZE 19:10 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.

EZE 19:11 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.

EZE 19:12 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.

EZE 19:13 And now she is planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty
ground.

EZE 19:14 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.

EZE 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.

EZE 20:2 Then came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

EZE 20:3 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.

EZE 20:4 Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause them to
know the abominations of their fathers:

EZE 20:5 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I chose
Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of 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 LORD your God;

EZE 20:6 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:

EZE 20:7 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.

EZE 20:8 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.

EZE 20:9 But I wrought for my name's 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.

EZE 20:10 Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt, and
brought them into the wilderness.

EZE 20:11 And I gave them my statutes, and shewed them my judgments, which if
a man do, he shall even live in them.

EZE 20:12 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.

EZE 20:13 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.

EZE 20:14 But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be polluted
before the heathen, in whose sight I brought them out.

EZE 20:15 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;

EZE 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my statutes,
but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.

EZE 20:17 Nevertheless mine eye spared them from destroying them, neither did
I make an end of them in the wilderness.

EZE 20:18 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:

EZE 20:19 I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments,
and do them;

EZE 20:20 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.

EZE 20:21 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.

EZE 20:22 Nevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and wrought for my name's sake,
that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose sight I
brought them forth.

EZE 20:23 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;

EZE 20:24 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.

EZE 20:25 Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and
judgments whereby they should not live;

EZE 20:26 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.

EZE 20:27 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.

EZE 20:28 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.

EZE 20:29 Then I said unto them, What is the high place whereunto ye go? And
the name whereof is called Bamah unto this day.

EZE 20:30 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?

EZE 20:31 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.

EZE 20:32 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.

EZE 20:33 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:

EZE 20:34 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.

EZE 20:35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and there
will I plead with you face to face.

EZE 20:36 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.

EZE 20:37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring you
into the bond of the covenant:

EZE 20:38 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.

EZE 20:39 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.

EZE 20:40 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.

EZE 20:41 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.

EZE 20:42 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.

EZE 20:43 And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings, wherein
ye have been defiled; and ye shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for all
your evils that ye have committed.

EZE 20:44 And ye shall know that I am the LORD when I have wrought with you
for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to your
corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 20:45 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 20:46 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;

EZE 20:47 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.

EZE 20:48 And all flesh shall see that I the LORD have kindled it: it shall
not be quenched.

EZE 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak
parables?

EZE 21:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 21:2 Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward
the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,

EZE 21:3 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 righteous and the wicked.

EZE 21:4 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:

EZE 21:5 That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my sword out
of his sheath: it shall not return any more.

EZE 21:6 Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and
with bitterness sigh before their eyes.

EZE 21:7 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.

EZE 21:8 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 21:9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A sword, a
sword is sharpened, and also furbished:

EZE 21:10 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.

EZE 21:11 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.

EZE 21:12 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.

EZE 21:13 Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod?
it shall be no more, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 21:14 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.

EZE 21:15 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.

EZE 21:16 Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left,
whithersoever thy face is set.

EZE 21:17 I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my fury to
rest: I the LORD have said it.

EZE 21:18 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,

EZE 21:19 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.

EZE 21:20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the
Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.

EZE 21:21 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.

EZE 21:22 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.

EZE 21:23 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.

EZE 21:24 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.

EZE 21:25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when
iniquity shall have an end,

EZE 21:26 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.

EZE 21:27 I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no more,
until he come whose right it is; and I will give it him.

EZE 21:28 And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD
concerning the Ammonites, and concerning their reproach; even say thou, The
sword, the sword is drawn: for the slaughter it is furbished, to consume
because of the glittering:

EZE 21:29 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 iniquity shall have an end.

EZE 21:30 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.

EZE 21:31 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.

EZE 21:32 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.

EZE 22:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 22:2 Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the bloody
city? yea, thou shalt shew her all her abominations.

EZE 22:3 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.

EZE 22:4 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.

EZE 22:5 Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock thee,
which art infamous and much vexed.

EZE 22:6 Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in thee to their power
to shed blood.

EZE 22:7 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.

EZE 22:8 Thou hast despised mine holy things, and hast profaned my sabbaths.

EZE 22:9 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.

EZE 22:10 In thee have they discovered their fathers' nakedness: in thee have
they humbled her that was set apart for pollution.

EZE 22:11 And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour's wife; and
another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath
humbled his sister, his father's daughter.

EZE 22:12 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.

EZE 22:13 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.

EZE 22:14 Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong, in the days
that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it.

EZE 22:15 And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee in the
countries, and will consume thy filthiness out of thee.

EZE 22:16 And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself in the sight of the
heathen, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

EZE 22:17 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 22:18 Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all they are
brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are
even the dross of silver.

EZE 22:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become dross,
behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.

EZE 22:20 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.

EZE 22:21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my
wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst therof.

EZE 22:22 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.

EZE 22:23 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 22:24 Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not cleansed,
nor rained upon in the day of indignation.

EZE 22:25 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.

EZE 22:26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy
things: they have put no difference between the holy and 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.

EZE 22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the prey,
to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.

EZE 22:28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered morter, seeing
vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD, when
the LORD hath not spoken.

EZE 22:29 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.

EZE 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the
hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy
it: but I found none.

EZE 22:31 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.

EZE 23:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:

EZE 23:3 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.

EZE 23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her sister:
and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their names;
Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

EZE 23:5 And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted on her
lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,

EZE 23:6 Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them
desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.

EZE 23:7 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.

EZE 23:8 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.

EZE 23:9 Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers, into the
hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.

EZE 23:10 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.

EZE 23:11 And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in her
inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her
whoredoms.

EZE 23:12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and rulers
clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them desirable
young men.

EZE 23:13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,

EZE 23:14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men
pourtrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans pourtrayed with
vermilion,

EZE 23:15 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 Chaldea, the land of their nativity:

EZE 23:16 And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon them, and
sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.

EZE 23:17 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 them.

EZE 23:18 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.

EZE 23:19 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.

EZE 23:20 For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the flesh of
asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

EZE 23:21 Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth, in
bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.

EZE 23:22 Therefore, O Aholibah, 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;

EZE 23:23 The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and
Koa, 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.

EZE 23:24 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.

EZE 23:25 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.

EZE 23:26 They shall also strip thee out of thy clothes, and take away thy
fair jewels.

EZE 23:27 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.

EZE 23:28 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:

EZE 23:29 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.

EZE 23:30 I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a whoring
after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.

EZE 23:31 Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister; therefore will I give her
cup into thine hand.

EZE 23:32 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup deep
and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it containeth
much.

EZE 23:33 Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup of
astonishment and desolation, with the cup of thy sister Samaria.

EZE 23:34 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.

EZE 23:35 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.

EZE 23:36 The LORD said moreover unto me; Son of man, wilt thou judge Aholah
and Aholibah? yea, declare unto them their abominations;

EZE 23:37 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.

EZE 23:38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my sanctuary
in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.

EZE 23:39 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.

EZE 23:40 And furthermore, that ye have 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,

EZE 23:41 And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it,
whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.

EZE 23:42 And a voice of a multitude being at ease was with her: and with the
men of the common sort were brought Sabeans from the wilderness, which put
bracelets upon their hands, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.

EZE 23:43 Then said I unto her that was old in adulteries, Will they now
commit whoredoms with her, and she with them?

EZE 23:44 Yet they went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that playeth
the harlot: so went they in unto Aholah and unto Aholibah, the lewd women.

EZE 23:45 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.

EZE 23:46 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will bring up a company upon
them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.

EZE 23:47 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.

EZE 23:48 Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the land, that all women
may be taught not to do after your lewdness.

EZE 23:49 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.

EZE 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,

EZE 24:2 Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day:
the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day.

EZE 24:3 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:

EZE 24:4 Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the
thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones.

EZE 24:5 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.

EZE 24:6 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.

EZE 24:7 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;

EZE 24:8 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.

EZE 24:9 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will
even make the pile for fire great.

EZE 24:10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it
well, and let the bones be burned.

EZE 24:11 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.

EZE 24:12 She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not
forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire.

EZE 24:13 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.

EZE 24:14 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.

EZE 24:15 Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 24:16 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.

EZE 24:17 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.

EZE 24:18 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.

EZE 24:19 And the people said unto me, Wilt thou not tell us what these things
are to us, that thou doest so?

EZE 24:20 Then I answered them, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 24:21 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.

EZE 24:22 And ye shall do as I have done: ye shall not cover your lips, nor
eat the bread of men.

EZE 24:23 And your tires shall be upon 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.

EZE 24:24 Thus Ezekiel 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.

EZE 24:25 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,

EZE 24:26 That he that escapeth in that day shall come unto thee, to cause
thee to hear it with thine ears?

EZE 24:27 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.

EZE 25:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 25:2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy against
them;

EZE 25:3 And say unto the Ammonites, 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;

EZE 25:4 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.

EZE 25:5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a
couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 25:6 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;

EZE 25:7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and will
deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the
people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy
thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

EZE 25:8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say,
Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;

EZE 25:9 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,
Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,

EZE 25:10 Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give them in
possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the nations.

EZE 25:11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know that I
am the LORD.

EZE 25:12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against the
house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and revenged
himself upon them;

EZE 25:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out mine hand
upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make it
desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.

EZE 25:14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people
Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my
fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 25:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by
revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for
the old hatred;

EZE 25:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out mine
hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy the
remnant of the sea coast.

EZE 25:17 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.

EZE 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,

EZE 26:2 Son of man, because that Tyrus 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:

EZE 26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea
causeth his waves to come up.

EZE 26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her towers:
I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a rock.

EZE 26:5 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.

EZE 26:6 And her daughters which are in the field shall be slain by the sword;
and they shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses,
and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people.

EZE 26:8 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.

EZE 26:9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his axes
he shall break down thy towers.

EZE 26:10 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.

EZE 26:11 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.

EZE 26:12 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.

EZE 26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the sound of
thy harps shall be no more heard.

EZE 26:14 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.

EZE 26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; 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?

EZE 26:16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their thrones,
and lay away their robes, and put off their 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.

EZE 26:17 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!

EZE 26:18 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.

EZE 26:19 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;

EZE 26:20 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;

EZE 26:21 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.

EZE 27:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 27:2 Now, thou son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyrus;

EZE 27:3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the sea,
which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O
Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.

EZE 27:4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have perfected
thy beauty.

EZE 27:5 They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they have
taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.

EZE 27:6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company of the
Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out of the isles of
Chittim.

EZE 27:7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou
spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was
that which covered thee.

EZE 27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy wise men, O
Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.

EZE 27:9 The ancients of Gebal 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.

EZE 27:10 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.

EZE 27:11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round
about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their shields upon
thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.

EZE 27:12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all kind of
riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs.

EZE 27:13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they traded the
persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.

EZE 27:14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses and
horsemen and mules.

EZE 27:15 The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the merchandise
of thine hand: they brought thee for a present horns of ivory and ebony.

EZE 27:16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares of
thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered
work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.

EZE 27:17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they traded
in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey, and oil, and balm.

EZE 27:18 Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of thy
making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white
wool.

EZE 27:19 Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs: bright
iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.

EZE 27:20 Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots.

EZE 27:21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee in
lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.

EZE 27:22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants: they
occupied in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious
stones, and gold.

EZE 27:23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur, and
Chilmad, were thy merchants.

EZE 27:24 These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue
clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords,
and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.

EZE 27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou wast
replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.

EZE 27:26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind hath
broken thee in the midst of the seas.

EZE 27:27 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.

EZE 27:28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

EZE 27:29 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;

EZE 27:30 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:

EZE 27:31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird them
with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with bitterness of heart and
bitter wailing.

EZE 27:32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and
lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the destroyed in the
midst of the sea?

EZE 27:33 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.

EZE 27:34 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.

EZE 27:35 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.

EZE 27:36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt be a
terror, and never shalt be any more.

EZE 28:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Because thine heart is lifted 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:

EZE 28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can
hide from thee:

EZE 28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee
riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

EZE 28:5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased thy
riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:

EZE 28:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine heart
as the heart of God;

EZE 28:7 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.

EZE 28:8 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.

EZE 28:9 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.

EZE 28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of
strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 28:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say
unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of
wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

EZE 28:13 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.

EZE 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; 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 stones of fire.

EZE 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.

EZE 28:16 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 stones of fire.

EZE 28:17 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.

EZE 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine
iniquities, by the iniquity 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.

EZE 28:19 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.

EZE 28:20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 28:21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against it,

EZE 28:22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Zidon; 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.

EZE 28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her streets; 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.

EZE 28:24 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 GOD.

EZE 28:25 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.

EZE 28:26 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.

EZE 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,

EZE 29:2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and prophesy
against him, and against all Egypt:

EZE 29:3 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.

EZE 29:4 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.

EZE 29:5 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 heaven.

EZE 29:6 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.

EZE 29:7 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.

EZE 29:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword upon
thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.

EZE 29:9 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.

EZE 29:10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers, and I
will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower of
Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.

EZE 29:11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall pass
through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.

EZE 29:12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the
countries that are desolate, 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.

EZE 29:13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I gather
the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:

EZE 29:14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause them
to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation; and
they shall be there a base kingdom.

EZE 29:15 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.

EZE 29:16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel, which
bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them: but
they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

EZE 29:17 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,

EZE 29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to serve
a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every shoulder
was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the service
that he had served against it:

EZE 29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the land of
Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar 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.

EZE 29:20 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.

EZE 29:21 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.

EZE 30:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye, Woe
worth the day!

EZE 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy day;
it shall be the time of the heathen.

EZE 30:4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in
Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her
multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.

EZE 30:5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and
Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the
sword.

EZE 30:6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall; and the
pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they fall
in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 30:7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that are
desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.

EZE 30:8 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.

EZE 30:9 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make the
careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the
day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.

EZE 30:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of Egypt to
cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.

EZE 30:11 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.

EZE 30:12 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.

EZE 30:13 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.

EZE 30:14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan, and
will execute judgments in No.

EZE 30:15 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I will
cut off the multitude of No.

EZE 30:16 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and No
shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses daily.

EZE 30:17 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword: and
these cities shall go into captivity.

EZE 30:18 At Tehaphnehes 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.

EZE 30:19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know that I
am the LORD.

EZE 30:20 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,

EZE 30:21 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.

EZE 30:22 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.

EZE 30:23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will
disperse them through the countries.

EZE 30:24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put my
sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan before
him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.

EZE 30:25 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.

EZE 30:26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and disperse
them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 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,

EZE 31:2 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his multitude;
Whom art thou like in thy greatness?

EZE 31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches, and
with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the
thick boughs.

EZE 31:4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her
rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little rivers unto all
the trees of the field.

EZE 31:5 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.

EZE 31:6 All the fowls of 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.

EZE 31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his branches: for
his root was by great waters.

EZE 31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir trees
were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his branches;
nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.

EZE 31:9 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.

EZE 31:10 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;

EZE 31:11 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.

EZE 31:12 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.

EZE 31:13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and all the
beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:

EZE 31:14 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.

EZE 31:15 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 Lebanon to mourn for
him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.

EZE 31:16 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 Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be
comforted in the nether parts of the earth.

EZE 31:17 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.

EZE 31:18 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.

EZE 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,

EZE 32:2 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.

EZE 32:3 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.

EZE 32:4 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 heaven to remain upon
thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.

EZE 32:5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the valleys
with thy height.

EZE 32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou swimmest, even
to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.

EZE 32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and make the
stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon shall not
give her light.

EZE 32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and set
darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 32:9 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.

EZE 32:10 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.

EZE 32:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon shall
come upon thee.

EZE 32:12 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.

EZE 32:13 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.

EZE 32:14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to run
like oil, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 32:15 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.

EZE 32:16 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.

EZE 32:17 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,

EZE 32:18 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.

EZE 32:19 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid with the
uncircumcised.

EZE 32:20 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.

EZE 32:21 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.

EZE 32:22 Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him: all
of them slain, fallen by the sword:

EZE 32:23 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.

EZE 32:24 There is Elam 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.

EZE 32:25 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.

EZE 32:26 There is Meshech, Tubal, 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.

EZE 32:27 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.

EZE 32:28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised, and
shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.

EZE 32:29 There is Edom, 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.

EZE 32:30 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the
Zidonians, 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.

EZE 32:31 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.

EZE 32:32 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.

EZE 33:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 33:2 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:

EZE 33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people;

EZE 33:4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not
warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his
own head.

EZE 33:5 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.

EZE 33:6 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
watchman's hand.

EZE 33:7 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.

EZE 33:8 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.

EZE 33:9 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.

EZE 33:10 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 pine
away in them, how should we then live?

EZE 33:11 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?

EZE 33:12 Therefore, thou 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 fall 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.

EZE 33:13 When I shall 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.

EZE 33:14 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;

EZE 33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had robbed,
walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall surely
live, he shall not die.

EZE 33:16 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.

EZE 33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not
equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

EZE 33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth
iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

EZE 33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is
lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

EZE 33:20 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.

EZE 33:21 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.

EZE 33:22 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.

EZE 33:23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 33:24 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.

EZE 33:25 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?

EZE 33:26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every
one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?

EZE 33:27 Say thou thus 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.

EZE 33:28 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.

EZE 33:29 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.

EZE 33:30 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.

EZE 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit before
thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them: for
with their mouth they shew much love, but their heart goeth after their
covetousness.

EZE 33:32 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.

EZE 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they
know that a prophet hath been among them.

EZE 34:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy, and
say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the
shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed
the flocks?

EZE 34:3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them that
are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

EZE 34:4 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.

EZE 34:5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they
became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

EZE 34:6 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.

EZE 34:7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

EZE 34:8 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;

EZE 34:9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

EZE 34:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, 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.

EZE 34:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both search my
sheep, and seek them out.

EZE 34:12 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.

EZE 34:13 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.

EZE 34:14 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.

EZE 34:15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith the
Lord GOD.

EZE 34:16 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.

EZE 34:17 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.

EZE 34:18 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?

EZE 34:19 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.

EZE 34:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even I, will
judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.

EZE 34:21 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed all
the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;

EZE 34:22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a prey;
and I will judge between cattle and cattle.

EZE 34:23 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.

EZE 34:24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a prince
among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

EZE 34:25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause the
evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the
wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

EZE 34:26 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.

EZE 34:27 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.

EZE 34:28 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.

EZE 34:29 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.

EZE 34:30 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.

EZE 34:31 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am your
God, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 35:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 35:2 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy against it,

EZE 35:3 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount Seir, I am
against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will make
thee most desolate.

EZE 35:4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and thou
shalt know that I am the LORD.

EZE 35:5 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 their iniquity had an end:

EZE 35:6 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.

EZE 35:7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it him
that passeth out and him that returneth.

EZE 35:8 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.

EZE 35:9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall not
return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 35:10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two countries
shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the LORD was there:

EZE 35:11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do according
to thine anger, and 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.

EZE 35:12 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.

EZE 35:13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have multiplied
your words against me: I have heard them.

EZE 35:14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I will make
thee desolate.

EZE 35:15 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 Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know that I am the
LORD.

EZE 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:

EZE 36:2 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against you,
Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:

EZE 36:3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they
have made you desolate, 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:

EZE 36:4 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 residue of the heathen that
are round about;

EZE 36:5 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 Idumea,
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.

EZE 36:6 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:

EZE 36:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand, Surely
the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.

EZE 36:8 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.

EZE 36:9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye shall be
tilled and sown:

EZE 36:10 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:

EZE 36:11 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 than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the
LORD.

EZE 36:12 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.

EZE 36:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land
devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations:

EZE 36:14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy nations
any more, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 36:15 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.

EZE 36:16 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 36:17 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.

EZE 36:18 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:

EZE 36:19 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.

EZE 36:20 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.

EZE 36:21 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel had
profaned among the heathen, whither they went.

EZE 36:22 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 name's sake,
which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

EZE 36:23 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.

EZE 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of
all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

EZE 36:25 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.

EZE 36:26 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.

EZE 36:27 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.

EZE 36:28 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.

EZE 36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will call
for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

EZE 36:30 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.

EZE 36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings that were
not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own sight for your iniquities
and for your abominations.

EZE 36:32 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.

EZE 36:33 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.

EZE 36:34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate
in the sight of all that passed by.

EZE 36:35 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 become
fenced, and are inhabited.

EZE 36:36 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.

EZE 36:37 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.

EZE 36:38 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.

EZE 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,

EZE 37:2 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.

EZE 37:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

EZE 37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto them,
O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

EZE 37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath
to enter into you, and ye shall live:

EZE 37:6 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.

EZE 37:7 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.

EZE 37:8 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.

EZE 37:9 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.

EZE 37:10 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.

EZE 37:11 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.

EZE 37:12 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.

EZE 37:13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your
graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

EZE 37:14 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.

EZE 37:15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

EZE 37:16 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 Ephraim and for all the
house of Israel his companions:

EZE 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall become
one in thine hand.

EZE 37:18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee, saying,
Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?

EZE 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take the
stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, 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.

EZE 37:20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand before
their eyes.

EZE 37:21 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:

EZE 37:22 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.

EZE 37:23 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 dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and
will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.

EZE 37:24 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.

EZE 37:25 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, and their children's children for ever: and my
servant David shall be their prince for ever.

EZE 37:26 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.

EZE 37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their God, and
they shall be my people.

EZE 37:28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel, when
my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

EZE 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

EZE 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the chief
prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

EZE 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

EZE 38:4 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 with bucklers and
shields, all of them handling swords:

EZE 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield and
helmet:

EZE 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

EZE 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy company
that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

EZE 38:8 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.

EZE 38:9 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.

EZE 38:10 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:

EZE 38:11 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,

EZE 38:12 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.

EZE 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, 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?

EZE 38:14 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?

EZE 38:15 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:

EZE 38:16 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.

EZE 38:17 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?

EZE 38:18 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.

EZE 38:19 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;

EZE 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the 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.

EZE 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my mountains,
saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

EZE 38:22 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, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

EZE 38:23 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.

EZE 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 Meshech
and Tubal:

EZE 39:2 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:

EZE 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause thine
arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

EZE 39:4 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.

EZE 39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it, saith the
Lord GOD.

EZE 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell carelessly
in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

EZE 39:7 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.

EZE 39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is the
day whereof I have spoken.

EZE 39:9 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:

EZE 39:10 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, and rob those that robbed them, saith
the Lord GOD.

EZE 39:11 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 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
Hamongog.

EZE 39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them, that
they may cleanse the land.

EZE 39:13 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.

EZE 39:14 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: after the end of seven months shall they search.

EZE 39:15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth a
man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried
it in the valley of Hamongog.

EZE 39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall they
cleanse the land.

EZE 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto every
feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves, and
come; gather 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.

EZE 39:18 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 Bashan.

EZE 39:19 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.

EZE 39:20 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.

EZE 39:21 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.

EZE 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God from
that day and forward.

EZE 39:23 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.

EZE 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions
have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

EZE 39:25 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;

EZE 39:26 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.

EZE 39:27 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;

EZE 39:28 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.

EZE 39:29 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.

EZE 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.

EZE 40:2 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.

EZE 40:3 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.

EZE 40:4 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.

EZE 40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and in the
man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand
breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the
height, one reed.

EZE 40:6 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 was one
reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad.

EZE 40:7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad; and
between the little chambers were five cubits; and the threshold of the gate
by the porch of the gate within was one reed.

EZE 40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.

EZE 40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the posts
thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was inward.

EZE 40:10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on this
side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the posts
had one measure on this side and on that side.

EZE 40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten cubits;
and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.

EZE 40:12 The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on this
side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the little chambers were
six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side.

EZE 40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber to the
roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty cubits, door against door.

EZE 40:14 He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of the
court round about the gate.

EZE 40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of the
porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits.

EZE 40:16 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to their
posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and windows
were round about inward: and upon each post were palm trees.

EZE 40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were
chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about: thirty chambers were
upon the pavement.

EZE 40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the length
of the gates was the lower pavement.

EZE 40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower gate
unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits eastward and
northward.

EZE 40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the north, he
measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof.

EZE 40:21 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and three on
that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after the
measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the
breadth five and twenty cubits.

EZE 40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were
after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the east; and they went up
unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them.

EZE 40:23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate toward the
north, and toward the east; and he measured from gate to gate an hundred
cubits.

EZE 40:24 After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate toward
the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof according
to these measures.

EZE 40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round about,
like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five and
twenty cubits.

EZE 40:26 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches thereof
were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another on
that side, upon the posts thereof.

EZE 40:27 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and he
measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits.

EZE 40:28 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he
measured the south gate according to these measures;

EZE 40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the
arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows in it and
in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and
twenty cubits broad.

EZE 40:30 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long, and
five cubits broad.

EZE 40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees
were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps.

EZE 40:32 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he
measured the gate according to these measures.

EZE 40:33 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and the
arches thereof, were according to these measures: and there were windows
therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and
five and twenty cubits broad.

EZE 40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm trees
were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up
to it had eight steps.

EZE 40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according
to these measures;

EZE 40:36 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches
thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits, and
the breadth five and twenty cubits.

EZE 40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm trees
were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the going up
to it had eight steps.

EZE 40:38 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of the
gates, where they washed the burnt offering.

EZE 40:39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and two
tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering and the sin offering
and the trespass offering.

EZE 40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the north
gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of the
gate, were two tables.

EZE 40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side, by the
side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.

EZE 40:42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering, of a
cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit high:
whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt
offering and the sacrifice.

EZE 40:43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about: and upon
the tables was the flesh of the offering.

EZE 40:44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in the
inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and their prospect was
toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect toward
the north.

EZE 40:45 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward the
south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house.

EZE 40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the
priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok
among the sons of Levi, which come near to the LORD to minister unto him.

EZE 40:47 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an hundred
cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar that was before the house.

EZE 40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each post
of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side: and the
breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on that
side.

EZE 40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth eleven
cubits, and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it: and there
were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.

EZE 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.

EZE 41:2 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits; and the sides of the door
were five 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.

EZE 41:3 Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door, two cubits;
and the door, six cubits; and the breadth of the door, seven cubits.

EZE 41:4 So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and the breadth,
twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said unto me, This is the most holy
place.

EZE 41:5 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the breadth
of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every side.

EZE 41:6 And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty in
order; and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side
chambers round about, that they might have hold, but they had not hold in the
wall of the house.

EZE 41:7 And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to the
side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round
about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so
increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.

EZE 41:8 I saw also the height of the house round about: the foundations
of the side chambers were a full reed of six great cubits.

EZE 41:9 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber without,
was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side chambers
that were within.

EZE 41:10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits round
about the house on every side.

EZE 41:11 And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that was
left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and the
breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.

EZE 41:12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end
toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was
five cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits.

EZE 41:13 So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the separate
place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an hundred cubits long;

EZE 41:14 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate place
toward the east, an hundred cubits.

EZE 41:15 And he measured the length of the building over against the separate
place which was behind it, and the galleries thereof on the one side and on
the other side, an hundred cubits, with the inner temple, and the porches
of the court;

EZE 41:16 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries round
about on their three stories, over against the door, cieled with wood round
about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were covered;

EZE 41:17 To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and without, and
by all the wall round about within and without, by measure.

EZE 41:18 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm tree
was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces;

EZE 41:19 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one
side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: it
was made through all the house round about.

EZE 41:20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm trees
made, and on the wall of the temple.

EZE 41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the sanctuary;
the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.

EZE 41:22 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length thereof two
cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the walls
thereof, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is before
the LORD.

EZE 41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.

EZE 41:24 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two leaves
for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.

EZE 41:25 And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple, cherubims
and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were thick planks
upon the face of the porch without.

EZE 41:26 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side and on
the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the side chambers of the
house, and thick planks.

EZE 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.

EZE 42:2 Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and the
breadth was fifty cubits.

EZE 42:3 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court, and
over against the pavement which was for the utter court, was gallery against
gallery in three stories.

EZE 42:4 And before the chambers was a walk to ten cubits breadth inward, a
way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.

EZE 42:5 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were higher
than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.

EZE 42:6 For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the pillars
of the courts: therefore the building was straitened more than the lowest and
the middlemost from the ground.

EZE 42:7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward the
utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof was fifty
cubits.

EZE 42:8 For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court was fifty
cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits.

EZE 42:9 And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side, as one
goeth into them from the utter court.

EZE 42:10 The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court toward
the east, over against the separate place, and over against the building.

EZE 42:11 And the way before them was like the appearance of the chambers
which were toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they: and all
their goings out were both according to their fashions, and according
to their doors.

EZE 42:12 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward the
south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the
wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.

EZE 42:13 Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south chambers,
which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where the priests
that approach unto the LORD shall eat the most holy things: there shall they
lay the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin offering, and
the trespass offering; for the place is holy.

EZE 42:14 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of the
holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay their garments
wherein they minister; for they are holy; and shall put on other garments,
and shall approach to those things which are for the people.

EZE 42:15 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he brought
me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and measured it
round about.

EZE 42:16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five hundred
reeds, with the measuring reed round about.

EZE 42:17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring
reed round about.

EZE 42:18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the measuring
reed.

EZE 42:19 He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred reeds
with the measuring reed.

EZE 42:20 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about, five
hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between the
sanctuary and the profane place.

EZE 43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh
toward the east:

EZE 43:2 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.

EZE 43:3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I saw,
even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city: and
the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell
upon my face.

EZE 43:4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the gate
whose prospect is toward the east.

EZE 43:5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court; and,
behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

EZE 43:6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man stood
by me.

EZE 43:7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and the
place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the
children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no
more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the
carcases of their kings in their high places.

EZE 43:8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their post
by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my holy
name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have
consumed them in mine anger.

EZE 43:9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their
kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.

EZE 43:10 Thou son of man, shew the house to the house of Israel, that they
may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.

EZE 43:11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, shew them the
form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof, and
the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances
thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it
in their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the
ordinances thereof, and do them.

EZE 43:12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the whole
limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of the
house.

EZE 43:13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The cubit
is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and the
breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about shall
be a span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar.

EZE 43:14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle shall
be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even
to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.

EZE 43:15 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and upward
shall be four horns.

EZE 43:16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad, square
in the four squares thereof.

EZE 43:17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen broad
in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a cubit;
and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall look
toward the east.

EZE 43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; These are
the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to offer
burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.

EZE 43:19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the seed
of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord GOD, a
young bullock for a sin offering.

EZE 43:20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the four
horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border round
about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.

EZE 43:21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he shall
burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.

EZE 43:22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without
blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they did
cleanse it with the bullock.

EZE 43:23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a young
bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

EZE 43:24 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests shall
cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering unto
the LORD.

EZE 43:25 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin offering:
they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock, without
blemish.

EZE 43:26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they shall
consecrate themselves.

EZE 43:27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the eighth
day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon the
altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 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.

EZE 44:2 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.

EZE 44:3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat bread
before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate, and
shall go out by the way of the same.

EZE 44:4 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house: and I
looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD: and
I fell upon my face.

EZE 44:5 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold with
thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee concerning all
the ordinances of the house of the LORD, and all the laws thereof; and mark
well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the sanctuary.

EZE 44:6 And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of Israel,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of all your
abominations,

EZE 44:7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers, uncircumcised in
heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to pollute it, even
my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and they have broken
my covenant because of all your abominations.

EZE 44:8 And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye have set
keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.

EZE 44:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart, nor
uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger that
is among the children of Israel.

EZE 44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel went
astray, which went astray away from me after their idols; they shall even
bear their iniquity.

EZE 44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at the
gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the burnt
offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before them
to minister unto them.

EZE 44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and caused the
house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up mine hand
against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall bear their iniquity.

EZE 44:13 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a priest
unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy place:
but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have
committed.

EZE 44:14 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for all the
service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein.

EZE 44:15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the charge
of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they shall
come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to offer
unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:

EZE 44:16 They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near to my
table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.

EZE 44:17 And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the gates
of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no wool
shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner
court, and within.

EZE 44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have linen
breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing that
causeth sweat.

EZE 44:19 And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the utter
court to the people, they shall put off their garments wherein they
ministered, and lay them in the holy chambers, and they shall put on other
garments; and they shall not sanctify the people with their garments.

EZE 44:20 Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks to grow
long; they shall only poll their heads.

EZE 44:21 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the inner
court.

EZE 44:22 Neither shall they take for their wives a widow, nor her that is put
away: but they shall take maidens of the seed of the house of Israel, or a
widow that had a priest before.

EZE 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy and
profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

EZE 44:24 And in controversy they shall stand in judgment; and they shall
judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my
statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

EZE 44:25 And they shall come at no dead person to defile themselves: but for
father, or for mother, or for son, or for daughter, for brother, or for
sister that hath had no husband, they may defile themselves.

EZE 44:26 And after he is cleansed, they shall reckon unto him seven days.

EZE 44:27 And in the day that he goeth into the sanctuary, unto the inner
court, to minister in the sanctuary, he shall offer his sin offering, saith
the Lord GOD.

EZE 44:28 And it shall be unto them for an inheritance: I am their
inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their
possession.

EZE 44:29 They shall eat the meat offering, and the sin offering, and the
trespass offering: and every dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs.

EZE 44:30 And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every
oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the priest's: ye
shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause
the blessing to rest in thine house.

EZE 44:31 The priests shall not eat of any thing that is dead of itself, or
torn, whether it be fowl or beast.

EZE 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 be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round
about.

EZE 45:2 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length, with
five hundred in breadth, square round about; and fifty cubits round about for
the suburbs thereof.

EZE 45:3 And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and twenty
thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the sanctuary
and the most holy place.

EZE 45:4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the ministers
of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto the LORD: and it
shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.

EZE 45:5 And the five and twenty thousand of length, and the ten thousand of
breadth shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have for
themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.

EZE 45:6 And ye shall appoint the possession of the city five thousand
broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the
holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel.

EZE 45:7 And a portion shall be for the prince on the one side and on the
other side of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of the
city, before the oblation of the holy portion, and before the possession
of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward:
and the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west
border unto the east border.

EZE 45:8 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes shall
no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land shall they give to the
house of Israel according to their tribes.

EZE 45:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of Israel:
remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away your
exactions from my people, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 45:10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just bath.

EZE 45:11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath may
contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an homer:
the measure thereof shall be after the homer.

EZE 45:12 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five and
twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

EZE 45:13 This is the oblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an ephah
of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an
homer of barley:

EZE 45:14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall offer the
tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths; for ten
baths are an homer:

EZE 45:15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the fat
pastures of Israel; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for
peace offerings, to make reconciliation for them, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 45:16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the prince
in Israel.

EZE 45:17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and meat
offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and
in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare
the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the
peace offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.

EZE 45:18 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the first month, in the first day of the
month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the
sanctuary:

EZE 45:19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering, and put
it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the settle
of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.

EZE 45:20 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every one that
erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye reconcile the house.

EZE 45:21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye shall
have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be eaten.

EZE 45:22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for all
the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.

EZE 45:23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering to the
LORD, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven days; and
a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering.

EZE 45:24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a bullock, and
an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah.

EZE 45:25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall he do
the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering,
according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and
according to the oil.

EZE 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.

EZE 46:2 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.

EZE 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of this
gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.

EZE 46:4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto the LORD
in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without
blemish.

EZE 46:5 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the meat
offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and an hin of oil to an
ephah.

EZE 46:6 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young bullock without
blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish.

EZE 46:7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a bullock, and an
ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his hand shall attain
unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

EZE 46:8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of the
porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.

EZE 46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in the
solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship
shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way
of the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not
return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over
against it.

EZE 46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go in;
and when they go forth, shall go forth.

EZE 46:11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat offering shall be
an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs as he is able
to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

EZE 46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering or
peace offerings voluntarily unto the LORD, one shall then open him the gate
that looketh toward the east, and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his
peace offerings, as he did on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and
after his going forth one shall shut the gate.

EZE 46:13 Thou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the LORD of a lamb
of the first year without blemish: thou shalt prepare it every morning.

EZE 46:14 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for it every morning, the
sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of oil, to temper with
the fine flour; a meat offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto the
LORD.

EZE 46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and the
oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.

EZE 46:16 Thus saith the Lord GOD; If the prince give a gift unto any of his
sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his sons'; it shall be their
possession by inheritance.

EZE 46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his
servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty; after it shall return
to the prince: but his inheritance shall be his sons' for them.

EZE 46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance by
oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give his
sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered
every man from his possession.

EZE 46:19 After he brought me through the entry, which was at the side of the
gate, into the holy chambers of the priests, which looked toward the north:
and, behold, there was a place on the two sides westward.

EZE 46:20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the priests shall boil
the trespass offering and the sin offering, where they shall bake the meat
offering; that they bear them not out into the utter court, to sanctify the
people.

EZE 46:21 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me to pass
by the four corners of the court; and, behold, in every corner of the court
there was a court.

EZE 46:22 In the four corners of the court there were courts joined of forty
cubits long and thirty broad: these four corners were of one measure.

EZE 46:23 And there was a row of building round about in them, round about
them four, and it was made with boiling places under the rows round about.

EZE 46:24 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them that boil, where
the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of the people.

EZE 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 from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.

EZE 47:2 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.

EZE 47:3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth eastward,
he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters; the
waters were to the ankles.

EZE 47:4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the waters; the
waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and brought me
through; the waters were to the loins.

EZE 47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I could not
pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river that could
not be passed over.

EZE 47:6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he brought
me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.

EZE 47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were very
many trees on the one side and on the other.

EZE 47:8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east
country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being
brought forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

EZE 47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which
moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a
very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for
they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.

EZE 47:10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon it from
Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets; their
fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea,
exceeding many.

EZE 47:11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not be
healed; they shall be given to salt.

EZE 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on that
side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither shall
the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according to
his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the
fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

EZE 47:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye shall
inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall have
two portions.

EZE 47:14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning the
which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land shall
fall unto you for inheritance.

EZE 47:15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north side, from
the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad;

EZE 47:16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of Damascus
and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by the coast of Hauran.

EZE 47:17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of
Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the
north side.

EZE 47:18 And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from
Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the
border unto the east sea. And this is the east side.

EZE 47:19 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of
strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side
southward.

EZE 47:20 The west side also shall be the great sea from the border, till a
man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.

EZE 47:21 So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes of
Israel.

EZE 47:22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for an
inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which
shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the
country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you
among the tribes of Israel.

EZE 47:23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger
sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to the
coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazarenan, the border of
Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; for these are his sides east and
west; a portion for Dan.

EZE 48:2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west side, a
portion for Asher.

EZE 48:3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the west
side, a portion for Naphtali.

EZE 48:4 And by the border of Naphtali, from the east side unto the west side,
a portion for Manasseh.

EZE 48:5 And by the border of Manasseh, from the east side unto the west side,
a portion for Ephraim.

EZE 48:6 And by the border of Ephraim, from the east side even unto the west
side, a portion for Reuben.

EZE 48:7 And by the border of Reuben, from the east side unto the west side, a
portion for Judah.

EZE 48:8 And by the border of Judah, from the east side unto the west side,
shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and twenty thousand reeds
in breadth, and in length as one of the other parts, from the east side unto
the west side: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.

EZE 48:9 The oblation that ye shall offer unto the LORD shall be of five and
twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in breadth.

EZE 48:10 And for them, even for the priests, shall be this holy oblation;
toward the north five and twenty thousand in length, and toward the west ten
thousand in breadth, and toward the east ten thousand in breadth, and toward
the south five and twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the LORD
shall be in the midst thereof.

EZE 48:11 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of
Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when the children of
Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.

EZE 48:12 And this oblation of the land that is offered shall be unto them a
thing most holy by the border of the Levites.

EZE 48:13 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall have
five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the
length shall be five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand.

EZE 48:14 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate the
firstfruits of the land: for it is holy unto the LORD.

EZE 48:15 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over against the
five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane place for the city, for
dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city shall be in the midst thereof.

EZE 48:16 And these shall be the measures thereof; the north side four
thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand and five
hundred, and on the east side four thousand and five hundred, and the west
side four thousand and five hundred.

EZE 48:17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two hundred
and fifty, and toward the south two hundred and fifty, and toward the east
two hundred and fifty, and toward the west two hundred and fifty.

EZE 48:18 And the residue in length over against the oblation of the holy
portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward: and it
shall be over against the oblation of the holy portion; and the increase
thereof shall be for food unto them that serve the city.

EZE 48:19 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the tribes of
Israel.

EZE 48:20 All the oblation shall be five and twenty thousand by five and
twenty thousand: ye shall offer the holy oblation foursquare, with the
possession of the city.

EZE 48:21 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and on the
other of the holy oblation, and of the possession of the city, over against
the five and twenty thousand of the oblation toward the east border, and
westward over against the five and twenty thousand toward the west border,
over against the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy oblation;
and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst thereof.

EZE 48:22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the possession
of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince's, between the
border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be for the prince.

EZE 48:23 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the west
side, Benjamin shall have a portion.

EZE 48:24 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the west
side, Simeon shall have a portion.

EZE 48:25 And by the border of Simeon, from the east side unto the west side,
Issachar a portion.

EZE 48:26 And by the border of Issachar, from the east side unto the west
side, Zebulun a portion.

EZE 48:27 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west side,
Gad a portion.

EZE 48:28 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the border
shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in Kadesh, and to the
river toward the great sea.

EZE 48:29 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes of
Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith the Lord GOD.

EZE 48:30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side, four
thousand and five hundred measures.

EZE 48:31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the tribes of
Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of Judah, one
gate of Levi.

EZE 48:32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three
gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.

EZE 48:33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures: and
three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of Zebulun.

EZE 48:34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their three
gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.

EZE 48:35 It was round about eighteen thousand measures: and the name of the
city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
