7 1Moreover the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
son of man, thus saith the Lord Jehovah unto the land of Israel, An end: the
end is come upon the four corners of the land.
3Now is the end upon thee,
and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy
ways; and I will bring upon thee all thine abominations.
4And mine eye
shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity; but I will bring thy ways
upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall
know that I am Jehovah.
5Thus saith the Lord Jehovah: An evil, an only
evil; behold, it cometh.
6An end is come, the end is come; it awaketh
against thee; behold, it cometh.
7Thy doom is come unto thee, O
inhabitant of the land: the time is come, the day is near, a day of
tumult, and not of joyful shouting, upon the mountains.
I shortly pour out my wrath upon thee, and accomplish mine anger against
thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways; and I will bring upon thee
all thine abominations.
9And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I
have pity: I will bring upon thee according to thy ways; and thine
abominations shall be in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I,
Jehovah, do smite.
10Behold, the day, behold, it cometh: thy doom is gone
forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
11Violence is risen up
into a rod of wickedness; none of them shall remain, nor of their
multitude, nor of their wealth: neither shall there be eminency among them.
12The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor
the seller mourn; for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they be yet alive:
for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof, none shall return;
neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
have blown the trumpet, and have made all ready; but none goeth to the
battle; for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
15The 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.
16But those of them that escape shall escape, and shall
be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them moaning, every one
in his iniquity.
17All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak
18They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror
shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all
19They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their
gold shall be as an unclean thing; their silver and their gold shall not be
able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Jehovah: they shall not
satisfy their souls, neither fill their bowels; because it hath been the
stumblingblock of their iniquity.
20As for the beauty of his ornament, he
set it in majesty; but they made the images of their abominations and
their detestable things therein: therefore have I made it unto them as an
21And 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 profane it.

shall possess their houses: I will also make the pride of the strong to
cease; and their holy places shall be profaned.
25Destruction cometh; and
they shall seek peace, and there shall be none.
26Mischief shall come
upon mischief, and rumor shall be upon rumor; and they shall seek a vision of
the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel from the

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 Jehovah.
