1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word toward the holy
places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,
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.
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:
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.
6 Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with
bitterness sigh before their eyes.
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.
8 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A sword, a sword is
sharpened, and also furbished:
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
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.
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.
13 Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the rod? it shall
be no more, saith the Lord GOD.
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
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.
16 Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the left,
whithersoever thy face is set.
17 I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my fury to rest: I
the LORD have said it.
18 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,
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.
20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites, and to
Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.
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.
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
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.
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.
25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come, when iniquity
shall have an end,
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
