Holy Bible book of
1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat before me.
2 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
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?
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
5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all
estranged from me through their idols.
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
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:
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.
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.
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;
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.
12 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,
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
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.
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:
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.
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:
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
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:
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.
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?
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
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.
