Ezekiel, Chapter 11

11:1 Moreover the Spirit lifted me up, and brought me to the east gate of Yahweh's house, which looks eastward: and look, at the door of the gate five and twenty men; and I saw in the midst of them Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.
11:2 And he said to me, Son of Man, these are the men who devise iniquity, and who give wicked counsel in this city;
11:3 who say, [The time] is not near to build houses: this [city] is the cauldron, and we are the flesh.
11:4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O Son of Man.
11:5 And the Spirit of Yahweh fell on me, and he said to me, Speak, Thus says Yahweh: Thus you+ have said, O house of Israel; for I know the things that come into your+ mind.
11:6 You+ have multiplied your+ slain in this city, and you+ have filled its streets with the slain.
11:7 Therefore thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Your+ slain whom you+ have laid in the midst of it, they are the flesh, and this [city] is the cauldron; but you+ will be brought forth out of the midst of it.
11:8 You+ have feared the sword; and I will bring the sword on you+, says the Sovereign Yahweh.
11:9 And I will bring you+ forth out of the midst of it, and deliver you+ into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you+.
11:10 You+ will fall by the sword; I will judge you+ in the border of Israel; and you+ will know that I am Yahweh.
11:11 This [city] will not be your+ cauldron, neither will you+ be the flesh in the midst of it; I will judge you+ in the border of Israel;
11:12 and you+ will know that I am Yahweh: for you+ have not walked in my statutes, neither have you+ executed my ordinances, but have done after the ordinances of the nations that are round about you+.
11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then I fell down on my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Sovereign Yahweh! Will you make a full end of the remnant of Israel?
11:14 And the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
11:15 Son of Man, your brothers, even your brothers, the men of your kindred, and all the house of Israel, all of them, [are they] to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get+ far from Yahweh; to us this land is given for a possession.
11:16 Therefore say, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Whereas I have removed them far off among the nations, and whereas I have scattered them among the countries, yet I will be to them a sanctuary for a little while in the countries where they have come.
11:17 Therefore say, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: I will gather you+ from the peoples, and assemble you+ out of the countries where you+ have been scattered, and I will give you+ the land of Israel.
11:18 And they will come there, and they will take away all its detestable and disgusting things from there.
11:19 And I will give them another heart, and I will put a new spirit inside you+; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them a heart of flesh;
11:20 that they may walk in my statutes, and keep my ordinances, and do them: and they will be my people, and I will be their God.
11:21 But those whose heart walks after their detestable things and disgusting things, I will bring their way on their own heads, says the Sovereign Yahweh.
11:22 Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, and the wheels were beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
11:23 And the glory of Yahweh went up from the midst of the city, and stood on the mountain which is on the east side of the city.
11:24 And the Spirit lifted me up, and brought me in the vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me.
11:25 Then I spoke to them of the captivity all the things that Yahweh had shown me.
