Ezekiel, Chapter 7

7:1 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
7:2 And you, Son of Man, thus says the Sovereign Yahweh to the land of Israel, An end: the end has come upon the four corners of the land.
7:3 Now the end is on you, and I will send my anger on you, and will judge you according to your ways; and I will bring on you all your disgusting behaviors.
7:4 And my eye will not spare you, neither will I have pity; but I will bring your ways on you, and your disgusting behaviors will be in the midst of you: and you+ will know that I am Yahweh.
7:5 Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: An evil, an only evil; look, it comes.
7:6 An end has come, the end has come; it awakes against you; look, it comes.
7:7 Your doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land: the time has come, the day is near, [a day of] tumult, and not [of] joyful shouting, on the mountains.
7:8 Now I will shortly pour out my wrath on you, and accomplish my anger against you, and will judge you according to your ways; and I will bring on you all your disgusting behaviors.
7:9 And my eye will not spare, neither will I have pity: I will bring on you according to your ways; and your disgusting behaviors will be in the midst of you; and you+ will know that I, Yahweh, do strike.
7:10 Look, the day, see it comes: your doom has gone forth; the rod has blossomed, pride has budded.
7:11 Violence has risen up into a rod of wickedness; none of them [will remain], nor of their multitude, nor of their wealth: neither will there be eminency among them.
7:12 The time has come, the day draws near: don't let the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn; for wrath is on all their multitude.
7:13 For the seller will not return to that which is sold, although they are yet alive: for the vision is concerning their whole multitude, none will return; neither will any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
7:14 They have blown the trumpet, and have made all ready; but none goes to the battle; for my wrath is on all their multitude.
7:15 The sword is outside, and the pestilence and the famine inside: he who is in the field will die with the sword: and he who is in the city, famine and pestilence will devour him.
7:16 But the ones of those who escape will escape, and will be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them moaning, everyone in his iniquity.
7:17 All hands will be feeble, and all knees will be weak as water.
7:18 They will also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror will cover them; and shame will be on all faces, and baldness on all their heads.
7:19 They will cast their silver in the streets, and their gold will be as an unclean thing; their silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Yahweh: they will not satisfy their souls, neither fill their insides; because it has been the stumbling block of their iniquity.
7:20 As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in splendor; but they made the images of their disgusting things [and] their detestable things in it: therefore I have made it to them as an unclean thing.
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 will profane it.
7:22 I will also turn my face from them, and they will profane my secret [place]; and robbers will enter into it, and profane it.
7:23 Make the chain; for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
7:24 Therefore I will bring the worst of the nations, and they will possess their houses: I will also make the pride of the strong to cease; and their holy places will be profaned.
7:25 Destruction comes; and they will seek peace, and there will be none.
7:26 Mischief will come upon mischief, and rumor will be on rumor; and they will seek a vision of the prophet; but the law will perish from the priest, and counsel from the elders.
7:27 The king will mourn, and the prince will be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land will be troubled: I will do to them after their way, and according to their deserts I will judge them; and they will know that I am Yahweh.
