The Basic Truths Of Life!

TRUTHS

The BibleEveryone that ever walked on this planet must come to terms in this life with some basic TRUTHS. These will be the basic truths that no one can argue with, if they are sane. Of course, if you believe what God says in His Own BOOK about you, then you will have no problem with accepting these basic truths.

1. The Brevity Of Life

"For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away." (James 4:14b) Our life is brief! like a vapor, or like smoke. "Is there not an appointed time to man upon earth? are not his days also like the days of an hireling?" (Job 7:1) He is born, and then he will die! This is certain! (The exception being Enoch and Elijah, and also, those believers in Jesus Christ who are alive when He comes for His Church.)

2. The Brevity Of Your Remembrance

You will soon be forgotten. A man is remembered only a little while, and then he is forgotten. "He shall return no more to his house, neither shall his place know him anymore. Are not my days few? cease then, and let me alone, that I may take comfort a little, Before I go whence I shall not return, even to the land of darkness and the shadow of death; A land of darkness, as darkness itself; and of the shadow of death, without any order, and where the light is as darkness." (Job 7:10 & 10:20-22)

3. The Sureness Of Trouble

Life is bale full of troubles. I have also found this very true!!! "Man that is born of a woman is of few days, and full of trouble. He cometh forth like a flower, and is cut down: he fleeth also as a shadow, and continueth not." (Job 14:1).

4. The Verity Of The White Throne Judgment

"And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment" (Hebrews 9:27). You will not miss this one unless YOU ARE HID in the CLEFT OF THE ROCK!

5. The Eternality And The Finality Of What You Do With Jesus Christ:

We will all be held accountable over this issue. It is a hard fact of life, my friend. Now will you take God's offer of eternal life ... purchased by His Son ... for all those who will put their trust in Him ... a thumbs down? You will everlastingly suffer the consequences!

6. That Men Never Learn From History

We learn from History That Men Never Learn From History! It is a heart problem! Men refuse to learn the "lessons" afforded by the light of HISTORY: the recorded historical events which occurred as fulfillment of Bible prophecy. Now, these are the basic truths with which we all must deal with one way or another!

7. What Should You Do?

"But what saith it? The word is nigh thee, even in thy mouth, and in thy heart: that is, the word of faith, which we preach;
That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
For the scripture saith, Whosoever believeth on him shall not be ashamed.
For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved"; [Romans 10:8-13]

BibleThis is God's Holy WORD to you and I! Do you believe it? The A.V.1611 (or The King James Bible) is God's word PRESERVED in the English language for you and me. It came from the English Reformation. This Bible declares that: "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." [2 Timothy 3:16] God's inspired word is preserved in the A.V.1611. The word "preserved" means maintained inspiration. "The words of the LORD are pure words: as silver tried in the furnace of earth, purified seven times. Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever." [Psalm 12:6-7] “PRESERVE.” .

LONG HOME

demo Everybody is going home someday. Everybody is going to their LONG HOME. When you die, you are going to go to your “long home” whether, it be in “Heaven” or in “Hell”. Do you realize that truth? “Also when they shall be afraid of that which is high, and fears shall be in the way, and the almond tree shall flourish, and the grasshopper shall be a burden, and desire shall fail: because man goeth to his long home, and the mourners go about the streets:” [Ecclesiastes 12:5].

The Book Of The Prophet Ezekiel



Ezekiel 1:1 Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month,
in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of
Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God.

Ezekiel 1:2 In the fifth day of the month, which was the fifth year of king
Jehoiachin's captivity,

Ezekiel 1:3 The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel the priest, the
son of Buzi, in the land of the Chaldeans by the river Chebar; and the hand of
the LORD was there upon him.

Ezekiel 1:4 And I looked, and, behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a
great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and
out of the midst thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of the fire.

Ezekiel 1:5 Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living
creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man.

Ezekiel 1:6 And every one had four faces, and every one had four wings.

Ezekiel 1:7 And their feet were straight feet; and the sole of their feet was
like the sole of a calf's foot: and they sparkled like the colour of burnished
brass.

Ezekiel 1:8 And they had the hands of a man under their wings on their four
sides; and they four had their faces and their wings.

Ezekiel 1:9 Their wings were joined one to another; they turned not when
they went; they went every one straight forward.

Ezekiel 1:10 As for the likeness of their faces, they four had the face of a
man, and the face of a lion, on the right side: and they four had the face of
an ox on the left side; they four also had the face of an eagle.

Ezekiel 1:11 Thus were their faces: and their wings were stretched upward;
two wings of every one were joined one to another, and two covered their
bodies.

Ezekiel 1:12 And they went every one straight forward: whither the spirit
was to go, they went; and they turned not when they went.

Ezekiel 1:13 As for the likeness of the living creatures, their appearance
was like burning coals of fire, and like the appearance of lamps: it went up
and down among the living creatures; and the fire was bright, and out of the
fire went forth lightning.

Ezekiel 1:14 And the living creatures ran and returned as the appearance of
a flash of lightning.

Ezekiel 1:15 Now as I beheld the living creatures, behold one wheel upon the
earth by the living creatures, with his four faces.

Ezekiel 1:16 The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the
colour of a beryl: and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and
their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel.

Ezekiel 1:17 When they went, they went upon their four sides: and they
turned not when they went.

Ezekiel 1:18 As for their rings, they were so high that they were dreadful;
and their rings were full of eyes round about them four.

Ezekiel 1:19 And when the living creatures went, the wheels went by them:
and when the living creatures were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were
lifted up.

Ezekiel 1:20 Whithersoever the spirit was to go, they went, thither was their
spirit to go; and the wheels were lifted up over against them: for the spirit
of the living creature was in the wheels.

Ezekiel 1:21 When those went, these went; and when those stood, these stood;
and when those were lifted up from the earth, the wheels were lifted up over
against them: for the spirit of the living creature was in the wheels.

Ezekiel 1:22 And the likeness of the firmament upon the heads of the living
creature was as the colour of the terrible crystal, stretched forth over their
heads above.

Ezekiel 1:23 And under the firmament were their wings straight, the one
toward the other: every one had two, which covered on this side, and every one
had two, which covered on that side, their bodies.

Ezekiel 1:24 And when they went, I heard the noise of their wings, like the
noise of great waters, as the voice of the Almighty, the voice of speech, as
the noise of an host: when they stood, they let down their wings.

Ezekiel 1:25 And there was a voice from the firmament that was over their
heads, when they stood, and had let down their wings.

Ezekiel 1:26 And above the firmament that was over their heads was the
likeness of a throne, as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the
likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon
it.

Ezekiel 1:27 And I saw as the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire
round about within it, from the appearance of his loins even upward, and from
the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of
fire, and it had brightness round about.

Ezekiel 1:28 As the appearance of the bow that is in the cloud in the day of
rain, so was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the
appearance of the likeness of the glory of the LORD. And when I saw it, I fell
upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

Ezekiel 2:1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will
speak unto thee.

Ezekiel 2:2 And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me
upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.

Ezekiel 2:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of
Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their
fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day.

Ezekiel 2:4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee
unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 2:5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear,
(for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a
prophet among them.

Ezekiel 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid
of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell
among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks,
though they be a rebellious house.

Ezekiel 2:7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear,
or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.

Ezekiel 2:8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou
rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give
thee.

Ezekiel 2:9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a
roll of a book was therein;

Ezekiel 2:10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and
without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

Ezekiel 3:1 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, eat that thou findest; eat
this roll, and go speak unto the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 3:2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.

Ezekiel 3:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and
fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was
in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

Ezekiel 3:4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of
Israel, and speak with my words unto them.

Ezekiel 3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an
hard language, but to the house of Israel;

Ezekiel 3:6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language,
whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I sent thee to them, they
would have hearkened unto thee.

Ezekiel 3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they
will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and
hardhearted.

Ezekiel 3:8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy
forehead strong against their foreheads.

Ezekiel 3:9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear
them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious
house.

Ezekiel 3:10 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall
speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.

Ezekiel 3:11 And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of
thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.

Ezekiel 3:12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a
great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.

Ezekiel 3:13 I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures
that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a
noise of a great rushing.

Ezekiel 3:14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in
bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD was strong upon
me.

Ezekiel 3:15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by
the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished
among them seven days.

Ezekiel 3:16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word of
the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman unto the house of
Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.

Ezekiel 3:18 When I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou
givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way,
to save his life; the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood
will I require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 3:19 Yet if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his
wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou
hast delivered thy soul.

Ezekiel 3:20 Again, When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness,
and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumblingblock before him, he shall die:
because thou hast not given him warning, he shall die in his sin, and his
righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I
require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 3:21 Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man, that the righteous
sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely live, because he is warned; also
thou hast delivered thy soul.

Ezekiel 3:22 And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said unto
me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee.

Ezekiel 3:23 Then I arose, and went forth into the plain: and, behold, the
glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the river of
Chebar: and I fell on my face.

Ezekiel 3:24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet, and
spake with me, and said unto me, Go, shut thyself within thine house.

Ezekiel 3:25 But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee,
and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them:

Ezekiel 3:26 And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth,
that thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: for they are a
rebellious house.

Ezekiel 3:27 But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou
shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; He that heareth, let him hear;
and he that forbeareth, let him forbear: for they are a rebellious house.

Ezekiel 4:1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee,
and portray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:

Ezekiel 4:2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast
a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams
against it round about.

Ezekiel 4:3 Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall
of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall
be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the
house of Israel.

Ezekiel 4:4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the
house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt
lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.

Ezekiel 4:5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according
to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear
the iniquity of the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right
side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I
have appointed thee each day for a year.

Ezekiel 4:7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem,
and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it.

Ezekiel 4:8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not turn
thee from one side to another, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.

Ezekiel 4:9 Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and
lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee
bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon
thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.

Ezekiel 4:10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty
shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.

Ezekiel 4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an
hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.

Ezekiel 4:12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it
with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.

Ezekiel 4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat
their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.

Ezekiel 4:14 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been
polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which
dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh
into my mouth.

Ezekiel 4:15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for
man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.

Ezekiel 4:16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the
staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with
care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:

Ezekiel 4:17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with
another, and consume away for their iniquity.

Ezekiel 5:1 And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a
barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then
take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair.

Ezekiel 5:2 Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the city,
when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shalt take a third part, and
smite about it with a knife: and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind;
and I will draw out a sword after them.

Ezekiel 5:3 Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in
thy skirts.

Ezekiel 5:4 Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the
fire, and burn them in the fire; for thereof shall a fire come forth into all
the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 5:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This is Jerusalem: I have set it in the
midst of the nations and countries that are round about her.

Ezekiel 5:6 And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than the
nations, and my statutes more than the countries that are round about her: for
they have refused my judgments and my statutes, they have not walked in them.

Ezekiel 5:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye multiplied more
than the nations that are round about you, and have not walked in my statutes,
neither have kept my judgments, neither have done according to the judgments
of the nations that are round about you;

Ezekiel 5:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, am against
thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee in the sight of the
nations.

Ezekiel 5:9 And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and whereunto
I will not do any more the like, because of all thine abominations.

Ezekiel 5:10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of thee,
and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments in thee,
and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the winds.

Ezekiel 5:11 Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD; Surely, because thou
hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine
abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye
spare, neither will I have any pity.

Ezekiel 5:12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with
famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a third part shall
fall by the sword round about thee; and I will scatter a third part into all
the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Ezekiel 5:13 Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury
to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall know that I the
LORD have spoken it in my zeal, when I have accomplished my fury in them.

Ezekiel 5:14 Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the
nations that are round about thee, in the sight of all that pass by.

Ezekiel 5:15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and an
astonishment unto the nations that are round about thee, when I shall execute
judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in furious rebukes. I the LORD have
spoken it.

Ezekiel 5:16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine, which
shall be for their destruction, and which I will send to destroy you: and I
will increase the famine upon you, and will break your staff of bread:

Ezekiel 5:17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they shall
bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee; and I will
bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 6:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 6:2 Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and
prophesy against them,

Ezekiel 6:3 And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and
to the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will
destroy your high places.

Ezekiel 6:4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be
broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.

Ezekiel 6:5 And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel
before their idols; and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.

Ezekiel 6:6 In all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and
the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made
desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your images may be cut
down, and your works may be abolished.

Ezekiel 6:7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know
that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 6:8 Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have some that shall
escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be scattered through the
countries.

Ezekiel 6:9 And they that escape of you shall remember me among the nations
whither they shall be carried captives, because I am broken with their whorish
heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring
after their idols: and they shall loathe themselves for the evils which they
have committed in all their abominations.

Ezekiel 6:10 And they shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have not
said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.

Ezekiel 6:11 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thine hand, and stamp with
thy foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel!
for they shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence.

Ezekiel 6:12 He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is
near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die
by the famine: thus will I accomplish my fury upon them.

Ezekiel 6:13 Then shall ye know that I am the LORD, when their slain men
shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon every high hill, in
all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every
thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.

Ezekiel 6:14 So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land
desolate, yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their
habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 7:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 7:2 Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of
Israel; An end, the end is come upon the four corners of the land.

Ezekiel 7:3 Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon
thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee
all thine abominations.

Ezekiel 7:4 And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but
I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the
midst of thee: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 7:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.

Ezekiel 7:6 An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold,
it is come.

Ezekiel 7:7 The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land:
the time is come, the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of
the mountains.

Ezekiel 7:8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish
mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will
recompense thee for all thine abominations.

Ezekiel 7:9 And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will
recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the
midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the LORD that smiteth.

Ezekiel 7:10 Behold the day, behold, it is come: the morning is gone forth;
the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

Ezekiel 7:11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them
shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither shall
there be wailing for them.

Ezekiel 7:12 The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer
rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

Ezekiel 7:13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although
they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof,
which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity
of his life.

Ezekiel 7:14 They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none
goeth to the battle: for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

Ezekiel 7:15 The 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.

Ezekiel 7:16 But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the
mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his
iniquity.

Ezekiel 7:17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as
water.

Ezekiel 7:18 They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror
shall cover them; and shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all
their heads.

Ezekiel 7:19 They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold
shall be removed: their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver
them in the day of the wrath of the LORD: they shall not satisfy their souls,
neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.

Ezekiel 7:20 As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but
they made the images of their abominations and of their detestable things
therein: therefore have I set it far from them.

Ezekiel 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 shall pollute it.

Ezekiel 7:22 My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute my
secret place: for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.

Ezekiel 7:23 Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the
city is full of violence.

Ezekiel 7:24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall
possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and
their holy places shall be defiled.

Ezekiel 7:25 Destruction cometh; and they shall seek peace, and there shall
be none.

Ezekiel 7:26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon
rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish
from the priest, and counsel from the ancients.

Ezekiel 7:27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with
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 the LORD.

Ezekiel 8:1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in
the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah
sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.

Ezekiel 8:2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from
the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even
upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.

Ezekiel 8:3 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of
mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and
brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate
that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy,
which provoketh to jealousy.

Ezekiel 8:4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according
to the vision that I saw in the plain.

Ezekiel 8:5 Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way
toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and
behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.

Ezekiel 8:6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they
do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that
I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt
see greater abominations.

Ezekiel 8:7 And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked,
behold a hole in the wall.

Ezekiel 8:8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when
I had digged in the wall, behold a door.

Ezekiel 8:9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations
that they do here.

Ezekiel 8:10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things,
and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed
upon the wall round about.

Ezekiel 8:11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the
house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan,
with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.

Ezekiel 8:12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the
ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of
his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the
earth.

Ezekiel 8:13 He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see
greater abominations that they do.

Ezekiel 8:14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house
which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

Ezekiel 8:15 Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn
thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

Ezekiel 8:16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house,
and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the
altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of
the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward
the east.

Ezekiel 8:17 Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it
a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which
they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have
returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.

Ezekiel 8:18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare,
neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice,
yet will I not hear them.

Ezekiel 9:1 He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them
that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man with his
destroying weapon in his hand.

Ezekiel 9:2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which
lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one
man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side:
and they went in, and stood beside the brazen altar.

Ezekiel 9:3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub,
whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man
clothed with linen, which had the writer's inkhorn by his side;

Ezekiel 9:4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city,
through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men
that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst
thereof.

Ezekiel 9:5 And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him
through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity:

Ezekiel 9:6 Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and
women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my
sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house.

Ezekiel 9:7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts
with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

Ezekiel 9:8 And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was
left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou
destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon
Jerusalem?

Ezekiel 9:9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and
Judah is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of
perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD
seeth not.

Ezekiel 9:10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I
have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.

Ezekiel 9:11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which had the inkhorn
by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded
me.

Ezekiel 10:1 Then I looked, and, behold, in the firmament that was above the
head of the cherubims there appeared over them as it were a sapphire stone, as
the appearance of the likeness of a throne.

Ezekiel 10:2 And he spake unto the man clothed with linen, and said, Go in
between the wheels, even under the cherub, and fill thine hand with coals of
fire from between the cherubims, and scatter them over the city. And he went
in in my sight.

Ezekiel 10:3 Now the cherubims stood on the right side of the house, when
the man went in; and the cloud filled the inner court.

Ezekiel 10:4 Then the glory of the LORD went up from the cherub, and stood
over the threshold of the house; and the house was filled with the cloud, and
the court was full of the brightness of the LORD'S glory.

Ezekiel 10:5 And the sound of the cherubims' wings was heard even to the
outer court, as the voice of the Almighty God when he speaketh.

Ezekiel 10:6 And it came to pass, that when he had commanded the man clothed
with linen, saying, Take fire from between the wheels, from between the
cherubims; then he went in, and stood beside the wheels.

Ezekiel 10:7 And one cherub stretched forth his hand from between the
cherubims unto the fire that was between the cherubims, and took thereof, and
put it into the hands of him that was clothed with linen: who took it, and
went out.

Ezekiel 10:8 And there appeared in the cherubims the form of a man's hand
under their wings.

Ezekiel 10:9 And when I looked, behold the four wheels by the cherubims, one
wheel by one cherub, and another wheel by another cherub: and the appearance
of the wheels was as the colour of a beryl stone.

Ezekiel 10:10 And as for their appearances, they four had one likeness, as
if a wheel had been in the midst of a wheel.

Ezekiel 10:11 When they went, they went upon their four sides; they turned
not as they went, but to the place whither the head looked they followed it;
they turned not as they went.

Ezekiel 10:12 And their whole body, and their backs, and their hands, and
their wings, and the wheels, were full of eyes round about, even the wheels
that they four had.

Ezekiel 10:13 As for the wheels, it was cried unto them in my hearing, O
wheel.

Ezekiel 10:14 And every one had four faces: the first face was the face of a
cherub, and the second face was the face of a man, and the third the face of a
lion, and the fourth the face of an eagle.

Ezekiel 10:15 And the cherubims were lifted up. This is the living creature
that I saw by the river of Chebar.

Ezekiel 10:16 And when the cherubims went, the wheels went by them: and when
the cherubims lifted up their wings to mount up from the earth, the same
wheels also turned not from beside them.

Ezekiel 10:17 When they stood, these stood; and when they were lifted up,
these lifted up themselves also: for the spirit of the living creature was in
them.

Ezekiel 10:18 Then the glory of the LORD departed from off the threshold of
the house, and stood over the cherubims.

Ezekiel 10:19 And the cherubims lifted up their wings, and mounted up from
the earth in my sight: when they went out, the wheels also were beside them,
and every one stood at the door of the east gate of the LORD'S house; and the
glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

Ezekiel 10:20 This is the living creature that I saw under the God of Israel
by the river of Chebar; and I knew that they were the cherubims.

Ezekiel 10:21 Every one had four faces apiece, and every one four wings; and
the likeness of the hands of a man was under their wings.

Ezekiel 10:22 And the likeness of their faces was the same faces which I saw
by the river of Chebar, their appearances and themselves: they went every one
straight forward.

Ezekiel 11:1 Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east
gate of the LORD'S house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of
the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur, and
Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.

Ezekiel 11:2 Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devise
mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:

Ezekiel 11:3 Which say, It is not near; let us build houses: this city is
the caldron, and we be the flesh.

Ezekiel 11:4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man.

Ezekiel 11:5 And the Spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and said unto me,
Speak; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: for I know
the things that come into your mind, every one of them.

Ezekiel 11:6 Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled
the streets thereof with the slain.

Ezekiel 11:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Your slain whom ye have laid
in the midst of it, they are the flesh, and this city is the caldron: but I
will bring you forth out of the midst of it.

Ezekiel 11:8 Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 11:9 And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you
into the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.

Ezekiel 11:10 Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of
Israel; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 11:11 This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the
flesh in the midst thereof; but I will judge you in the border of Israel:

Ezekiel 11:12 And ye shall know that I am the LORD: for ye have not walked
in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners
of the heathen that are round about you.

Ezekiel 11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that Pelatiah the son
of Benaiah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice,
and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Israel?

Ezekiel 11:14 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 11:15 Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy
kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the
inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the LORD: unto us is this
land given in possession.

Ezekiel 11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Although I have cast
them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the
countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where
they shall come.

Ezekiel 11:17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even gather you
from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been
scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

Ezekiel 11:18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the
detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

Ezekiel 11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit
within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give
them an heart of flesh:

Ezekiel 11:20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances,
and do them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

Ezekiel 11:21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of their
detestable things and their abominations, I will recompense their way upon
their own heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 11:22 Then did the cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels
beside them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

Ezekiel 11:23 And the glory of the LORD went up from the midst of the city,
and stood upon the mountain which is on the east side of the city.

Ezekiel 11:24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision
by the Spirit of God into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision
that I had seen went up from me.

Ezekiel 11:25 Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that
the LORD had showed me.

Ezekiel 12:1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house,
which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for
they are a rebellious house.

Ezekiel 12:3 Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for removing,
and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt remove from thy place to
another place in their sight: it may be they will consider, though they be a
rebellious house.

Ezekiel 12:4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as
stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they
that go forth into captivity.

Ezekiel 12:5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out
thereby.

Ezekiel 12:6 In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders, and carry
it forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy face, that thou see not the
ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 12:7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by
day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with
mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder
in their sight.

Ezekiel 12:8 And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house,
said unto thee, What doest thou?

Ezekiel 12:10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden
concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among
them.

Ezekiel 12:11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done
unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.

Ezekiel 12:12 And the prince that is among them shall bear upon his shoulder
in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig through the wall to carry
out thereby: he shall cover his face, that he see not the ground with his
eyes.

Ezekiel 12:13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken in
my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon to the land of the Chaldeans; yet
shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

Ezekiel 12:14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to
help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them.

Ezekiel 12:15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter
them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.

Ezekiel 12:16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from the
famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all their abominations
among the heathen whither they come; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 12:17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water
with trembling and with carefulness;

Ezekiel 12:19 And say unto the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord GOD
of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, and of the land of Israel; They shall eat
their bread with carefulness, and drink their water with astonishment, that
her land may be desolate from all that is therein, because of the violence of
all them that dwell therein.

Ezekiel 12:20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and the
land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 12:21 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:22 Son of man, what is that proverb that ye have in the land of
Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth?

Ezekiel 12:23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will make this
proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel; but
say unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.

Ezekiel 12:24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering
divination within the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 12:25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall
speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O
rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord
GOD.

Ezekiel 12:26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Ezekiel 12:27 Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, The
vision that he seeth is for many days to come, and he prophesieth of the times
that are far off.

Ezekiel 12:28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall
none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall
be done, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 13:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 13:2 Son of man, prophesy against the prophets of Israel that
prophesy, and say thou unto them that prophesy out of their own hearts, Hear
ye the word of the LORD;

Ezekiel 13:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe unto the foolish prophets, that
follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing!

Ezekiel 13:4 O Israel, thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

Ezekiel 13:5 Ye have not gone up into the gaps, neither made up the hedge
for the house of Israel to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.

Ezekiel 13:6 They have seen vanity and lying divination, saying, The LORD
saith: and the LORD hath not sent them: and they have made others to hope that
they would confirm the word.

Ezekiel 13:7 Have ye not seen a vain vision, and have ye not spoken a lying
divination, whereas ye say, The LORD saith it; albeit I have not spoken?

Ezekiel 13:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye have spoken
vanity, and seen lies, therefore, behold, I am against you, saith the Lord
GOD.

Ezekiel 13:9 And mine hand shall be upon the prophets that see vanity, and
that divine lies: they shall not be in the assembly of my people, neither
shall they be written in the writing of the house of Israel, neither shall
they enter into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 13:10 Because, even because they have seduced my people, saying,
Peace; and there was no peace; and one built up a wall, and, lo, others daubed
it with untempered mortar:

Ezekiel 13:11 Say unto them which daub it with untempered mortar, that it
shall fall: there shall be an overflowing shower; and ye, O great hailstones,
shall fall; and a stormy wind shall rend it.

Ezekiel 13:12 Lo, when the wall is fallen, shall it not be said unto you,
Where is the daubing wherewith ye have daubed it?

Ezekiel 13:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even rend it with a
stormy wind in my fury; and there shall be an overflowing shower in mine
anger, and great hailstones in my fury to consume it.

Ezekiel 13:14 So will I break down the wall that ye have daubed with
untempered mortar, and bring it down to the ground, so that the foundation
thereof shall be discovered, and it shall fall, and ye shall be consumed in
the midst thereof: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 13:15 Thus will I accomplish my wrath upon the wall, and upon them
that have daubed it with untempered mortar, and will say unto you, The wall is
no more, neither they that daubed it;

Ezekiel 13:16 To wit, the prophets of Israel which prophesy concerning
Jerusalem, and which see visions of peace for her, and there is no peace,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 13:17 Likewise, thou son of man, set thy face against the daughters
of thy people, which prophesy out of their own heart; and prophesy thou
against them,

Ezekiel 13:18 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the women that sew
pillows to all armholes, and make kerchiefs upon the head of every stature to
hunt souls! Will ye hunt the souls of my people, and will ye save the souls
alive that come unto you?

Ezekiel 13:19 And will ye pollute me among my people for handfuls of barley
and for pieces of bread, to slay the souls that should not die, and to save
the souls alive that should not live, by your lying to my people that hear your
lies?

Ezekiel 13:20 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against your
pillows, wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly, and I will tear
them from your arms, and will let the souls go, even the souls that ye hunt to
make them fly.

Ezekiel 13:21 Your kerchiefs also will I tear, and deliver my people out of
your hand, and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted; and ye shall
know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 13:22 Because with lies ye have made the heart of the righteous sad,
whom I have not made sad; and strengthened the hands of the wicked, that he
should not return from his wicked way, by promising him life:

Ezekiel 13:23 Therefore ye shall see no more vanity, nor divine divinations:
for I will deliver my people out of your hand: and ye shall know that I am the
LORD.

Ezekiel 14:1 Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me, and sat
before me.

Ezekiel 14:2 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 14:3 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
inquired of at all by them?

Ezekiel 14:4 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 idols;

Ezekiel 14:5 That I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because
they are all estranged from me through their idols.

Ezekiel 14:6 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 abominations.

Ezekiel 14:7 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 inquire of him concerning me; I the LORD will
answer him by myself:

Ezekiel 14:8 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.

Ezekiel 14:9 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.

Ezekiel 14:10 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;

Ezekiel 14:11 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.

Ezekiel 14:12 The word of the LORD came again to me, saying,

Ezekiel 14:13 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 from it:

Ezekiel 14:14 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.

Ezekiel 14:15 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:

Ezekiel 14:16 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.

Ezekiel 14:17 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:

Ezekiel 14:18 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 themselves.

Ezekiel 14:19 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:

Ezekiel 14:20 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.

Ezekiel 14:21 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?

Ezekiel 14:22 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 upon it.

Ezekiel 14:23 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.

Ezekiel 15:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 15:2 Son of man, What is the vine tree more than any tree, or than a
branch which is among the trees of the forest?

Ezekiel 15:3 Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work? or will men take a
pin of it to hang any vessel thereon?

Ezekiel 15:4 Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel; the fire devoureth
both the ends of it, and the midst of it is burned. Is it meet for any work?

Ezekiel 15:5 Behold, when it was whole, it was meet for no work: how much
less shall it be meet yet for any work, when the fire hath devoured it, and it
is burned?

Ezekiel 15:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; As the vine tree among the
trees of the forest, which I have given to the fire for fuel, so will I give
the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 15:7 And I will set my face against them; they shall go out from one
fire, and another fire shall devour them; and ye shall know that I am the
LORD, when I set my face against them.

Ezekiel 15:8 And I will make the land desolate, because they have committed
a trespass, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 16:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 16:2 Son of man, cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

Ezekiel 16:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto Jerusalem; Thy birth and
thy nativity is of the land of Canaan; thy father was an Amorite, and thy
mother an Hittite.

Ezekiel 16:4 And as for thy nativity, in the day thou wast born thy navel
was not cut, neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee; thou wast not
salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

Ezekiel 16:5 None eye pitied thee, to do any of these unto thee, to have
compassion upon thee; but thou wast cast out in the open field, to the
loathing of thy person, in the day that thou wast born.

Ezekiel 16:6 And when I passed by thee, and saw thee polluted in thine own
blood, I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live; yea, I said unto
thee when thou wast in thy blood, Live.

Ezekiel 16:7 I have caused thee to multiply as the bud of the field, and
thou hast increased and waxen great, and thou art come to excellent ornaments:
thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown, whereas thou wast naked
and bare.

Ezekiel 16:8 Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee, behold, thy
time was the time of love; and I spread my skirt over thee, and covered thy
nakedness: yea, I sware unto thee, and entered into a covenant with thee,
saith the Lord GOD, and thou becamest mine.

Ezekiel 16:9 Then washed I thee with water; yea, I thoroughly washed away
thy blood from thee, and I anointed thee with oil.

Ezekiel 16:10 I clothed thee also with broidered work, and shod thee with
badgers' skin, and I girded thee about with fine linen, and I covered thee
with silk.

Ezekiel 16:11 I decked thee also with ornaments, and I put bracelets upon
thy hands, and a chain on thy neck.

Ezekiel 16:12 And I put a jewel on thy forehead, and earrings in thine ears,
and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

Ezekiel 16:13 Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver; and thy raiment
was of fine linen, and silk, and broidered work; thou didst eat fine flour,
and honey, and oil: and thou wast exceeding beautiful, and thou didst prosper
into a kingdom.

Ezekiel 16:14 And thy renown went forth among the heathen for thy beauty:
for it was perfect through my comeliness, which I had put upon thee, saith the
Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 16:15 But thou didst trust in thine own beauty, and playedst the
harlot because of thy renown, and pouredst out thy fornications on every one
that passed by; his it was.

Ezekiel 16:16 And of thy garments thou didst take, and deckedst thy high
places with divers colours, and playedst the harlot thereupon: the like things
shall not come, neither shall it be so.

Ezekiel 16:17 Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels of my gold and of my
silver, which I had given thee, and madest to thyself images of men, and didst
commit whoredom with them,

Ezekiel 16:18 And tookest thy broidered garments, and coveredst them: and
thou hast set mine oil and mine incense before them.

Ezekiel 16:19 My meat also which I gave thee, fine flour, and oil, and
honey, wherewith I fed thee, thou hast even set it before them for a sweet
savour: and thus it was, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 16:20 Moreover thou hast taken thy sons and thy daughters, whom thou
hast borne unto me, and these hast thou sacrificed unto them to be devoured.
Is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

Ezekiel 16:21 That thou hast slain my children, and delivered them to cause
them to pass through the fire for them?

Ezekiel 16:22 And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms thou hast not
remembered the days of thy youth, when thou wast naked and bare, and wast
polluted in thy blood.

Ezekiel 16:23 And it came to pass after all thy wickedness, (woe, woe unto
thee! saith the Lord GOD;)

Ezekiel 16:24 That thou hast also built unto thee an eminent place, and hast
made thee an high place in every street.

Ezekiel 16:25 Thou hast built thy high place at every head of the way, and
hast made thy beauty to be abhorred, and hast opened thy feet to every one
that passed by, and multiplied thy whoredoms.

Ezekiel 16:26 Thou hast also committed fornication with the Egyptians thy
neighbours, great of flesh; and hast increased thy whoredoms, to provoke me to
anger.

Ezekiel 16:27 Behold, therefore I have stretched out my hand over thee, and
have diminished thine ordinary food, and delivered thee unto the will of them
that hate thee, the daughters of the Philistines, which are ashamed of thy
lewd way.

Ezekiel 16:28 Thou hast played the whore also with the Assyrians, because
thou wast unsatiable; yea, thou hast played the harlot with them, and yet
couldest not be satisfied.

Ezekiel 16:29 Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication in the land of
Canaan unto Chaldea; and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

Ezekiel 16:30 How weak is thine heart, saith the Lord GOD, seeing thou doest
all these things, the work of an imperious whorish woman;

Ezekiel 16:31 In that thou buildest thine eminent place in the head of every
way, and makest thine high place in every street; and hast not been as an
harlot, in that thou scornest hire;

Ezekiel 16:32 But as a wife that committeth adultery, which taketh strangers
instead of her husband!

Ezekiel 16:33 They give gifts to all whores: but thou givest thy gifts to
all thy lovers, and hirest them, that they may come unto thee on every side
for thy whoredom.

Ezekiel 16:34 And the contrary is in thee from other women in thy whoredoms,
whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms: and in that thou givest a
reward, and no reward is given unto thee, therefore thou art contrary.

Ezekiel 16:35 Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD:

Ezekiel 16:36 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thy filthiness was poured
out, and thy nakedness discovered through thy whoredoms with thy lovers, and
with all the idols of thy abominations, and by the blood of thy children,
which thou didst give unto them;

Ezekiel 16:37 Behold, therefore I will gather all thy lovers, with whom thou
hast taken pleasure, and all them that thou hast loved, with all them that
thou hast hated; I will even gather them round about against thee, and will
discover thy nakedness unto them, that they may see all thy nakedness.

Ezekiel 16:38 And I will judge thee, as women that break wedlock and shed
blood are judged; and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

Ezekiel 16:39 And I will also give thee into their hand, and they shall
throw down thine eminent place, and shall break down thy high places: they
shall strip thee also of thy clothes, and shall take thy fair jewels, and
leave thee naked and bare.

Ezekiel 16:40 They shall also bring up a company against thee, and they
shall stone thee with stones, and thrust thee through with their swords.

Ezekiel 16:41 And they shall burn thine houses with fire, and execute
judgments upon thee in the sight of many women: and I will cause thee to cease
from playing the harlot, and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

Ezekiel 16:42 So will I make my fury toward thee to rest, and my jealousy
shall depart from thee, and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

Ezekiel 16:43 Because thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth, but
hast fretted me in all these things; behold, therefore I also will recompense
thy way upon thine head, saith the Lord GOD: and thou shalt not commit this
lewdness above all thine abominations.

Ezekiel 16:44 Behold, every one that useth proverbs shall use this proverb
against thee, saying, As is the mother, so is her daughter.

Ezekiel 16:45 Thou art thy mother's daughter, that loatheth her husband and
her children; and thou art the sister of thy sisters, which loathed their
husbands and their children: your mother was an Hittite, and your father an
Amorite.

Ezekiel 16:46 And thine elder sister is Samaria, she and her daughters that
dwell at thy left hand: and thy younger sister, that dwelleth at thy right
hand, is Sodom and her daughters.

Ezekiel 16:47 Yet hast thou not walked after their ways, nor done after
their abominations: but, as if that were a very little thing, thou wast
corrupted more than they in all thy ways.

Ezekiel 16:48 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, Sodom thy sister hath not done,
she nor her daughters, as thou hast done, thou and thy daughters.

Ezekiel 16:49 Behold, this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom, pride,
fulness of bread, and abundance of idleness was in her and in her daughters,
neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.

Ezekiel 16:50 And they were haughty, and committed abomination before me:
therefore I took them away as I saw good.

Ezekiel 16:51 Neither hath Samaria committed half of thy sins; but thou hast
multiplied thine abominations more than they, and hast justified thy sisters
in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

Ezekiel 16:52 Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters, bear thine own shame
for thy sins that thou hast committed more abominable than they: they are more
righteous than thou: yea, be thou confounded also, and bear thy shame, in that
thou hast justified thy sisters.

Ezekiel 16:53 When I shall bring again their captivity, the captivity of
Sodom and her daughters, and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters, then
will I bring again the captivity of thy captives in the midst of them:

Ezekiel 16:54 That thou mayest bear thine own shame, and mayest be
confounded in all that thou hast done, in that thou art a comfort unto them.

Ezekiel 16:55 When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters, shall return to
their former estate, and Samaria and her daughters shall return to their
former estate, then thou and thy daughters shall return to your former estate.

Ezekiel 16:56 For thy sister Sodom was not mentioned by thy mouth in the day
of thy pride,

Ezekiel 16:57 Before thy wickedness was discovered, as at the time of thy
reproach of the daughters of Syria, and all that are round about her, the
daughters of the Philistines, which despise thee round about.

Ezekiel 16:58 Thou hast borne thy lewdness and thine abominations, saith the
LORD.

Ezekiel 16:59 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will even deal with thee as
thou hast done, which hast despised the oath in breaking the covenant.

Ezekiel 16:60 Nevertheless I will remember my covenant with thee in the days
of thy youth, and I will establish unto thee an everlasting covenant.

Ezekiel 16:61 Then thou shalt remember thy ways, and be ashamed, when thou
shalt receive thy sisters, thine elder and thy younger: and I will give them
unto thee for daughters, but not by thy covenant.

Ezekiel 16:62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt
know that I am the LORD:

Ezekiel 16:63 That thou mayest remember, and be confounded, and never open
thy mouth any more because of thy shame, when I am pacified toward thee for
all that thou hast done, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 17:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 17:2 Son of man, put forth a riddle, and speak a parable unto the
house of Israel;

Ezekiel 17:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; A great eagle with great
wings, longwinged, full of feathers, which had divers colours, came unto
Lebanon, and took the highest branch of the cedar:

Ezekiel 17:4 He cropped off the top of his young twigs, and carried it into
a land of traffic; he set it in a city of merchants.

Ezekiel 17:5 He took also of the seed of the land, and planted it in a
fruitful field; he placed it by great waters, and set it as a willow tree.

Ezekiel 17:6 And it grew, and became a spreading vine of low stature, whose
branches turned toward him, and the roots thereof were under him: so it became
a vine, and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs.

Ezekiel 17:7 There was also another great eagle with great wings and many
feathers: and, behold, this vine did bend her roots toward him, and shot forth
her branches toward him, that he might water it by the furrows of her
plantation.

Ezekiel 17:8 It was planted in a good soil by great waters, that it might
bring forth branches, and that it might bear fruit, that it might be a goodly
vine.

Ezekiel 17:9 Say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Shall it prosper? shall he
not pull up the roots thereof, and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither?
it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring, even without great power or
many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof.

Ezekiel 17:10 Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper? shall it not
utterly wither, when the east wind toucheth it? it shall wither in the furrows
where it grew.

Ezekiel 17:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 17:12 Say now to the rebellious house, Know ye not what these things
mean? tell them, Behold, the king of Babylon is come to Jerusalem, and hath
taken the king thereof, and the princes thereof, and led them with him to
Babylon;

Ezekiel 17:13 And hath taken of the king's seed, and made a covenant with
him, and hath taken an oath of him: he hath also taken the mighty of the land:

Ezekiel 17:14 That the kingdom might be base, that it might not lift itself
up, but that by keeping of his covenant it might stand.

Ezekiel 17:15 But he rebelled against him in sending his ambassadors into
Egypt, that they might give him horses and much people. Shall he prosper?
shall he escape that doeth such things? or shall he break the covenant, and be
delivered?

Ezekiel 17:16 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely in the place where the
king dwelleth that made him king, whose oath he despised, and whose covenant
he brake, even with him in the midst of Babylon he shall die.

Ezekiel 17:17 Neither shall Pharaoh with his mighty army and great company
make for him in the war, by casting up mounts, and building forts, to cut off
many persons:

Ezekiel 17:18 Seeing he despised the oath by breaking the covenant, when,
lo, he had given his hand, and hath done all these things, he shall not
escape.

Ezekiel 17:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live, surely mine oath
that he hath despised, and my covenant that he hath broken, even it will I
recompense upon his own head.

Ezekiel 17:20 And I will spread my net upon him, and he shall be taken in my
snare, and I will bring him to Babylon, and will plead with him there for his
trespass that he hath trespassed against me.

Ezekiel 17:21 And all his fugitives with all his bands shall fall by the
sword, and they that remain shall be scattered toward all winds: and ye shall
know that I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 17:22 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also take of the highest
branch of the high cedar, and will set it; I will crop off from the top of his
young twigs a tender one, and will plant it upon an high mountain and eminent:

Ezekiel 17:23 In the mountain of the height of Israel will I plant it: and
it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit, and be a goodly cedar: and under
it shall dwell all fowl of every wing; in the shadow of the branches thereof
shall they dwell.

Ezekiel 17:24 And all the trees of the field shall know that I the LORD have
brought down the high tree, have exalted the low tree, have dried up the green
tree, and have made the dry tree to flourish: I the LORD have spoken and have
done it.

Ezekiel 18:1 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,

Ezekiel 18:2 What mean ye, that ye use this proverb concerning the land of
Israel, saying, The fathers have eaten sour grapes, and the children's teeth
are set on edge?

Ezekiel 18:3 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, ye shall not have occasion any
more to use this proverb in Israel.

Ezekiel 18:4 Behold, all souls are mine; as the soul of the father, so also
the soul of the son is mine: the soul that sinneth, it shall die.

Ezekiel 18:5 But if a man be just, and do that which is lawful and right,

Ezekiel 18:6 And hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up
his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, neither hath defiled his
neighbour's wife, neither hath come near to a menstruous woman,

Ezekiel 18:7 And hath not oppressed any, but hath restored to the debtor his
pledge, hath spoiled none by violence, hath given his bread to the hungry, and
hath covered the naked with a garment;

Ezekiel 18:8 He that hath not given forth upon usury, neither hath taken any
increase, that hath withdrawn his hand from iniquity, hath executed true
judgment between man and man,

Ezekiel 18:9 Hath walked in my statutes, and hath kept my judgments, to deal
truly; he is just, he shall surely live, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 18:10 If he beget a son that is a robber, a shedder of blood, and
that doeth the like to any one of these things,

Ezekiel 18:11 And that doeth not any of those duties, but even hath eaten
upon the mountains, and defiled his neighbour's wife,

Ezekiel 18:12 Hath oppressed the poor and needy, hath spoiled by violence,
hath not restored the pledge, and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols, hath
committed abomination,

Ezekiel 18:13 Hath given forth upon usury, and hath taken increase: shall he
then live? he shall not live: he hath done all these abominations; he shall
surely die; his blood shall be upon him.

Ezekiel 18:14 Now, lo, if he beget a son, that seeth all his father's sins
which he hath done, and considereth, and doeth not such like,

Ezekiel 18:15 That hath not eaten upon the mountains, neither hath lifted up
his eyes to the idols of the house of Israel, hath not defiled his neighbour's
wife,

Ezekiel 18:16 Neither hath oppressed any, hath not withholden the pledge,
neither hath spoiled by violence, but hath given his bread to the hungry, and
hath covered the naked with a garment,

Ezekiel 18:17 That hath taken off his hand from the poor, that hath not
received usury nor increase, hath executed my judgments, hath walked in my
statutes; he shall not die for the iniquity of his father, he shall surely
live.

Ezekiel 18:18 As for his father, because he cruelly oppressed, spoiled his
brother by violence, and did that which is not good among his people, lo, even
he shall die in his iniquity.

Ezekiel 18:19 Yet say ye, Why? doth not the son bear the iniquity of the
father? When the son hath done that which is lawful and right, and hath kept
all my statutes, and hath done them, he shall surely live.

Ezekiel 18:20 The soul that sinneth, it shall die. The son shall not bear
the iniquity of the father, neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the
son: the righteousness of the righteous shall be upon him, and the wickedness
of the wicked shall be upon him.

Ezekiel 18:21 But if the wicked will turn from all his sins that he hath
committed, and keep all my statutes, and do that which is lawful and right, he
shall surely live, he shall not die.

Ezekiel 18:22 All his transgressions that he hath committed, they shall not
be mentioned unto him: in his righteousness that he hath done he shall live.

Ezekiel 18:23 Have I any pleasure at all that the wicked should die? saith
the Lord GOD: and not that he should return from his ways, and live?

Ezekiel 18:24 But when the righteous turneth away from his righteousness,
and committeth iniquity, and doeth according to all the abominations that the
wicked man doeth, shall he live? All his righteousness that he hath done shall
not be mentioned: in his trespass that he hath trespassed, and in his sin that
he hath sinned, in them shall he die.

Ezekiel 18:25 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. Hear now, O
house of Israel; Is not my way equal? are not your ways unequal?

Ezekiel 18:26 When a righteous man turneth away from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, and dieth in them; for his iniquity that he hath done
shall he die.

Ezekiel 18:27 Again, when the wicked man turneth away from his wickedness
that he hath committed, and doeth that which is lawful and right, he shall
save his soul alive.

Ezekiel 18:28 Because he considereth, and turneth away from all his
transgressions that he hath committed, he shall surely live, he shall not die.

Ezekiel 18:29 Yet saith the house of Israel, The way of the Lord is not
equal. O house of Israel, are not my ways equal? are not your ways unequal?

Ezekiel 18:30 Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel, every one
according to his ways, saith the Lord GOD. Repent, and turn yourselves from
all your transgressions; so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

Ezekiel 18:31 Cast away from you all your transgressions, whereby ye have
transgressed; and make you a new heart and a new spirit: for why will ye die,
O house of Israel?

Ezekiel 18:32 For I have no pleasure in the death of him that dieth, saith
the Lord GOD: wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

Ezekiel 19:1 Moreover take thou up a lamentation for the princes of Israel,

Ezekiel 19:2 And say, What is thy mother? A lioness: she lay down among
lions, she nourished her whelps among young lions.

Ezekiel 19:3 And she brought up one of her whelps: it became a young lion,
and it learned to catch the prey; it devoured men.

Ezekiel 19:4 The nations also heard of him; he was taken in their pit, and
they brought him with chains unto the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 19:5 Now when she saw that she had waited, and her hope was lost,
then she took another of her whelps, and made him a young lion.

Ezekiel 19:6 And he went up and down among the lions, he became a young
lion, and learned to catch the prey, and devoured men.

Ezekiel 19:7 And he knew their desolate palaces, and he laid waste their
cities; and the land was desolate, and the fulness thereof, by the noise of
his roaring.

Ezekiel 19:8 Then the nations set against him on every side from the
provinces, and spread their net over him: he was taken in their pit.

Ezekiel 19:9 And they put him in ward in chains, and brought him to the king
of Babylon: they brought him into holds, that his voice should no more be
heard upon the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 19:10 Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood, planted by the waters:
she was fruitful and full of branches by reason of many waters.

Ezekiel 19:11 And she had strong rods for the sceptres of them that bare
rule, and her stature was exalted among the thick branches, and she appeared
in her height with the multitude of her branches.

Ezekiel 19:12 But she was plucked up in fury, she was cast down to the
ground, and the east wind dried up her fruit: her strong rods were broken and
withered; the fire consumed them.

Ezekiel 19:13 And now she is planted in the wilderness, in a dry and thirsty
ground.

Ezekiel 19:14 And fire is gone out of a rod of her branches, which hath
devoured her fruit, so that she hath no strong rod to be a sceptre to rule.
This is a lamentation, and shall be for a lamentation.

Ezekiel 20:1 And it came to pass in the seventh year, in the fifth month,
the tenth day of the month, that certain of the elders of Israel came to
inquire of the LORD, and sat before me.

Ezekiel 20:2 Then came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 20:3 Son of man, speak unto the elders of Israel, and say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Are ye come to inquire of me? As I live, saith the
Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.

Ezekiel 20:4 Wilt thou judge them, son of man, wilt thou judge them? cause
them to know the abominations of their fathers:

Ezekiel 20:5 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when I
chose Israel, and lifted up mine hand unto the seed of the house of Jacob, and
made myself known unto them in the land of Egypt, when I lifted up mine hand
unto them, saying, I am the LORD your God;

Ezekiel 20:6 In the day that I lifted up mine hand unto them, to bring them
forth of the land of Egypt into a land that I had espied for them, flowing
with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands:

Ezekiel 20:7 Then said I unto them, Cast ye away every man the abominations
of his eyes, and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt: I am the LORD
your God.

Ezekiel 20:8 But they rebelled against me, and would not hearken unto me:
they did not every man cast away the abominations of their eyes, neither did
they forsake the idols of Egypt: then I said, I will pour out my fury upon
them, to accomplish my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 20:9 But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be
polluted before the heathen, among whom they were, in whose sight I made
myself known unto them, in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 20:10 Wherefore I caused them to go forth out of the land of Egypt,
and brought them into the wilderness.

Ezekiel 20:11 And I gave them my statutes, and showed them my judgments,
which if a man do, he shall even live in them.

Ezekiel 20:12 Moreover also I gave them my sabbaths, to be a sign between me
and them, that they might know that I am the LORD that sanctify them.

Ezekiel 20:13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness:
they walked not in my statutes, and they despised my judgments, which if a man
do, he shall even live in them; and my sabbaths they greatly polluted: then I
said, I would pour out my fury upon them in the wilderness, to consume them.

Ezekiel 20:14 But I wrought for my name's sake, that it should not be
polluted before the heathen, in whose sight I brought them out.

Ezekiel 20:15 Yet also I lifted up my hand unto them in the wilderness, that
I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk
and honey, which is the glory of all lands;

Ezekiel 20:16 Because they despised my judgments, and walked not in my
statutes, but polluted my sabbaths: for their heart went after their idols.

Ezekiel 20:17 Nevertheless mine eye spared them from destroying them,
neither did I make an end of them in the wilderness.

Ezekiel 20:18 But I said unto their children in the wilderness, Walk ye not
in the statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor defile
yourselves with their idols:

Ezekiel 20:19 I am the LORD your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my
judgments, and do them;

Ezekiel 20:20 And hallow my sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between me
and you, that ye may know that I am the LORD your God.

Ezekiel 20:21 Notwithstanding the children rebelled against me: they walked
not in my statutes, neither kept my judgments to do them, which if a man do,
he shall even live in them; they polluted my sabbaths: then I said, I would
pour out my fury upon them, to accomplish my anger against them in the
wilderness.

Ezekiel 20:22 Nevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and wrought for my name's
sake, that it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose
sight I brought them forth.

Ezekiel 20:23 I lifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness, that I
would scatter them among the heathen, and disperse them through the countries;

Ezekiel 20:24 Because they had not executed my judgments, but had despised
my statutes, and had polluted my sabbaths, and their eyes were after their
fathers' idols.

Ezekiel 20:25 Wherefore I gave them also statutes that were not good, and
judgments whereby they should not live;

Ezekiel 20:26 And I polluted them in their own gifts, in that they caused to
pass through the fire all that openeth the womb, that I might make them
desolate, to the end that they might know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 20:27 Therefore, son of man, speak unto the house of Israel, and say
unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed
me, in that they have committed a trespass against me.

Ezekiel 20:28 For when I had brought them into the land, for the which I
lifted up mine hand to give it to them, then they saw every high hill, and all
the thick trees, and they offered there their sacrifices, and there they
presented the provocation of their offering: there also they made their sweet
savour, and poured out there their drink offerings.

Ezekiel 20:29 Then I said unto them, What is the high place whereunto ye go?
And the name thereof is called Bamah unto this day.

Ezekiel 20:30 Wherefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Are ye polluted after the manner of your fathers? and commit ye whoredom
after their abominations?

Ezekiel 20:31 For when ye offer your gifts, when ye make your sons to pass
through the fire, ye pollute yourselves with all your idols, even unto this
day: and shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, saith
the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.

Ezekiel 20:32 And that which cometh into your mind shall not be at all, that
ye say, We will be as the heathen, as the families of the countries, to serve
wood and stone.

Ezekiel 20:33 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely with a mighty hand, and
with a stretched out arm, and with fury poured out, will I rule over you:

Ezekiel 20:34 And I will bring you out from the people, and will gather you
out of the countries wherein ye are scattered, with a mighty hand, and with a
stretched out arm, and with fury poured out.

Ezekiel 20:35 And I will bring you into the wilderness of the people, and
there will I plead with you face to face.

Ezekiel 20:36 Like as I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness of the
land of Egypt, so will I plead with you, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 20:37 And I will cause you to pass under the rod, and I will bring
you into the bond of the covenant:

Ezekiel 20:38 And I will purge out from among you the rebels, and them that
transgress against me: I will bring them forth out of the country where they
sojourn, and they shall not enter into the land of Israel: and ye shall know
that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 20:39 As for you, O house of Israel, thus saith the Lord GOD; Go ye,
serve ye every one his idols, and hereafter also, if ye will not hearken unto
me: but pollute ye my holy name no more with your gifts, and with your idols.

Ezekiel 20:40 For in mine holy mountain, in the mountain of the height of
Israel, saith the Lord GOD, there shall all the house of Israel, all of them
in the land, serve me: there will I accept them, and there will I require your
offerings, and the firstfruits of your oblations, with all your holy things.

Ezekiel 20:41 I will accept you with your sweet savour, when I bring you out
from the people, and gather you out of the countries wherein ye have been
scattered; and I will be sanctified in you before the heathen.

Ezekiel 20:42 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall bring you
into the land of Israel, into the country for the which I lifted up mine hand
to give it to your fathers.

Ezekiel 20:43 And there shall ye remember your ways, and all your doings,
wherein ye have been defiled; and ye shall loathe yourselves in your own sight
for all your evils that ye have committed.

Ezekiel 20:44 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have wrought with
you for my name's sake, not according to your wicked ways, nor according to
your corrupt doings, O ye house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 20:45 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 20:46 Son of man, set thy face toward the south, and drop thy word
toward the south, and prophesy against the forest of the south field;

Ezekiel 20:47 And say to the forest of the south, Hear the word of the LORD;
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee, and it shall
devour every green tree in thee, and every dry tree: the flaming flame shall
not be quenched, and all faces from the south to the north shall be burned
therein.

Ezekiel 20:48 And all flesh shall see that I the LORD have kindled it: it
shall not be quenched.

Ezekiel 20:49 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! they say of me, Doth he not speak
parables?

Ezekiel 21:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 21:2 Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and drop thy word
toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,

Ezekiel 21:3 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.

Ezekiel 21:4 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:

Ezekiel 21:5 That all flesh may know that I the LORD have drawn forth my
sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more.

Ezekiel 21:6 Sigh therefore, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy
loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.

Ezekiel 21:7 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.

Ezekiel 21:8 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 21:9 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus saith the LORD; Say, A
sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished:

Ezekiel 21:10 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 tree.

Ezekiel 21:11 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.

Ezekiel 21:12 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.

Ezekiel 21:13 Because it is a trial, and what if the sword contemn even the
rod? it shall be no more, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 21:14 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 chambers.

Ezekiel 21:15 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.

Ezekiel 21:16 Go thee one way or other, either on the right hand, or on the
left, whithersoever thy face is set.

Ezekiel 21:17 I will also smite mine hands together, and I will cause my
fury to rest: I the LORD have said it.

Ezekiel 21:18 The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying,

Ezekiel 21:19 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.

Ezekiel 21:20 Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the
Ammonites, and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced.

Ezekiel 21:21 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.

Ezekiel 21:22 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 fort.

Ezekiel 21:23 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.

Ezekiel 21:24 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.

Ezekiel 21:25 And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel, whose day is come,
when iniquity shall have an end,

Ezekiel 21:26 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.

Ezekiel 21:27 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.

Ezekiel 21:28 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 glittering:

Ezekiel 21:29 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.

Ezekiel 21:30 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.

Ezekiel 21:31 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.

Ezekiel 21:32 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.

Ezekiel 22:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 22:2 Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge, wilt thou judge the
bloody city? yea, thou shalt show her all her abominations.

Ezekiel 22:3 Then say thou, Thus saith the Lord GOD, The city sheddeth blood
in the midst of it, that her time may come, and maketh idols against herself
to defile herself.

Ezekiel 22:4 Thou art become guilty in thy blood that thou hast shed; and
hast defiled thyself in thine idols which thou hast made; and thou hast caused
thy days to draw near, and art come even unto thy years: therefore have I made
thee a reproach unto the heathen, and a mocking to all countries.

Ezekiel 22:5 Those that be near, and those that be far from thee, shall mock
thee, which art infamous and much vexed.

Ezekiel 22:6 Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in thee to their
power to shed blood.

Ezekiel 22:7 In thee have they set light by father and mother: in the midst
of thee have they dealt by oppression with the stranger: in thee have they
vexed the fatherless and the widow.

Ezekiel 22:8 Thou hast despised mine holy things, and hast profaned my
sabbaths.

Ezekiel 22:9 In thee are men that carry tales to shed blood: and in thee
they eat upon the mountains: in the midst of thee they commit lewdness.

Ezekiel 22:10 In thee have they discovered their fathers' nakedness: in thee
have they humbled her that was set apart for pollution.

Ezekiel 22:11 And one hath committed abomination with his neighbour's wife;
and another hath lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in thee hath
humbled his sister, his father's daughter.

Ezekiel 22:12 In thee have they taken gifts to shed blood; thou hast taken
usury and increase, and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbours by
extortion, and hast forgotten me, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 22:13 Behold, therefore I have smitten mine hand at thy dishonest
gain which thou hast made, and at thy blood which hath been in the midst of
thee.

Ezekiel 22:14 Can thine heart endure, or can thine hands be strong, in the
days that I shall deal with thee? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it.

Ezekiel 22:15 And I will scatter thee among the heathen, and disperse thee
in the countries, and will consume thy filthiness out of thee.

Ezekiel 22:16 And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself in the sight
of the heathen, and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 22:17 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 22:18 Son of man, the house of Israel is to me become dross: all
they are brass, and tin, and iron, and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they
are even the dross of silver.

Ezekiel 22:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye are all become
dross, behold, therefore I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.

Ezekiel 22:20 As they gather silver, and brass, and iron, and lead, and tin,
into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire upon it, to melt it; so will I
gather you in mine anger and in my fury, and I will leave you there, and melt
you.

Ezekiel 22:21 Yea, I will gather you, and blow upon you in the fire of my
wrath, and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.

Ezekiel 22:22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye
be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I the LORD have poured
out my fury upon you.

Ezekiel 22:23 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 22:24 Son of man, say unto her, Thou art the land that is not
cleansed, nor rained upon in the day of indignation.

Ezekiel 22:25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst thereof,
like a roaring lion ravening the prey; they have devoured souls; they have
taken the treasure and precious things; they have made her many widows in the
midst thereof.

Ezekiel 22:26 Her priests have violated my law, and have profaned mine holy
things: they have put no difference between the holy and profane, neither have
they showed difference between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their
eyes from my sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.

Ezekiel 22:27 Her princes in the midst thereof are like wolves ravening the
prey, to shed blood, and to destroy souls, to get dishonest gain.

Ezekiel 22:28 And her prophets have daubed them with untempered mortar,
seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them, saying, Thus saith the Lord GOD,
when the LORD hath not spoken.

Ezekiel 22:29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised
robbery, and have vexed the poor and needy: yea, they have oppressed the
stranger wrongfully.

Ezekiel 22:30 And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the
hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy
it: but I found none.

Ezekiel 22:31 Therefore have I poured out mine indignation upon them; I have
consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I recompensed upon
their heads, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 23:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 23:2 Son of man, there were two women, the daughters of one mother:

Ezekiel 23:3 And they committed whoredoms in Egypt; they committed whoredoms
in their youth: there were their breasts pressed, and there they bruised the
teats of their virginity.

Ezekiel 23:4 And the names of them were Aholah the elder, and Aholibah her
sister: and they were mine, and they bare sons and daughters. Thus were their
names; Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem Aholibah.

Ezekiel 23:5 And Aholah played the harlot when she was mine; and she doted
on her lovers, on the Assyrians her neighbours,

Ezekiel 23:6 Which were clothed with blue, captains and rulers, all of them
desirable young men, horsemen riding upon horses.

Ezekiel 23:7 Thus she committed her whoredoms with them, with all them that
were the chosen men of Assyria, and with all on whom she doted: with all their
idols she defiled herself.

Ezekiel 23:8 Neither left she her whoredoms brought from Egypt: for in her
youth they lay with her, and they bruised the breasts of her virginity, and
poured their whoredom upon her.

Ezekiel 23:9 Wherefore I have delivered her into the hand of her lovers,
into the hand of the Assyrians, upon whom she doted.

Ezekiel 23:10 These discovered her nakedness: they took her sons and her
daughters, and slew her with the sword: and she became famous among women; for
they had executed judgment upon her.

Ezekiel 23:11 And when her sister Aholibah saw this, she was more corrupt in
her inordinate love than she, and in her whoredoms more than her sister in her
whoredoms.

Ezekiel 23:12 She doted upon the Assyrians her neighbours, captains and
rulers clothed most gorgeously, horsemen riding upon horses, all of them
desirable young men.

Ezekiel 23:13 Then I saw that she was defiled, that they took both one way,

Ezekiel 23:14 And that she increased her whoredoms: for when she saw men
portrayed upon the wall, the images of the Chaldeans portrayed with vermilion,

Ezekiel 23:15 Girded with girdles upon their loins, exceeding in dyed attire
upon their heads, all of them princes to look to, after the manner of the
Babylonians of Chaldea, the land of their nativity:

Ezekiel 23:16 And as soon as she saw them with her eyes, she doted upon
them, and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.

Ezekiel 23:17 And the Babylonians came to her into the bed of love, and they
defiled her with their whoredom, and she was polluted with them, and her mind
was alienated from them.

Ezekiel 23:18 So she discovered her whoredoms, and discovered her nakedness:
then my mind was alienated from her, like as my mind was alienated from her
sister.

Ezekiel 23:19 Yet she multiplied her whoredoms, in calling to remembrance
the days of her youth, wherein she had played the harlot in the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 23:20 For she doted upon their paramours, whose flesh is as the
flesh of asses, and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

Ezekiel 23:21 Thus thou calledst to remembrance the lewdness of thy youth,
in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians for the paps of thy youth.

Ezekiel 23:22 Therefore, O Aholibah, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
raise up thy lovers against thee, from whom thy mind is alienated, and I will
bring them against thee on every side;

Ezekiel 23:23 The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans, Pekod, and Shoa, and
Koa, and all the Assyrians with them: all of them desirable young men,
captains and rulers, great lords and renowned, all of them riding upon horses.

Ezekiel 23:24 And they shall come against thee with chariots, wagons, and
wheels, and with an assembly of people, which shall set against thee buckler
and shield and helmet round about: and I will set judgment before them, and
they shall judge thee according to their judgments.

Ezekiel 23:25 And I will set my jealousy against thee, and they shall deal
furiously with thee: they shall take away thy nose and thine ears; and thy
remnant shall fall by the sword: they shall take thy sons and thy daughters;
and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire.

Ezekiel 23:26 They shall also strip thee out of thy clothes, and take away
thy fair jewels.

Ezekiel 23:27 Thus will I make thy lewdness to cease from thee, and thy
whoredom brought from the land of Egypt: so that thou shalt not lift up thine
eyes unto them, nor remember Egypt any more.

Ezekiel 23:28 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will deliver thee into
the hand of them whom thou hatest, into the hand of them from whom thy mind is
alienated:

Ezekiel 23:29 And they shall deal with thee hatefully, and shall take away
all thy labour, and shall leave thee naked and bare: and the nakedness of thy
whoredoms shall be discovered, both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.

Ezekiel 23:30 I will do these things unto thee, because thou hast gone a
whoring after the heathen, and because thou art polluted with their idols.

Ezekiel 23:31 Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister; therefore will I
give her cup into thine hand.

Ezekiel 23:32 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup
deep and large: thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision; it
containeth much.

Ezekiel 23:33 Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow, with the cup
of astonishment and desolation, with the cup of thy sister Samaria.

Ezekiel 23:34 Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out, and thou shalt break
the sherds thereof, and pluck off thine own breasts: for I have spoken it,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 23:35 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast forgotten
me, and cast me behind thy back, therefore bear thou also thy lewdness and thy
whoredoms.

Ezekiel 23:36 The LORD said moreover unto me; Son of man, wilt thou judge
Aholah and Aholibah? yea, declare unto them their abominations;

Ezekiel 23:37 That they have committed adultery, and blood is in their
hands, and with their idols have they committed adultery, and have also caused
their sons, whom they bare unto me, to pass for them through the fire, to
devour them.

Ezekiel 23:38 Moreover this they have done unto me: they have defiled my
sanctuary in the same day, and have profaned my sabbaths.

Ezekiel 23:39 For when they had slain their children to their idols, then
they came the same day into my sanctuary to profane it; and, lo, thus have
they done in the midst of mine house.

Ezekiel 23:40 And furthermore, that ye have sent for men to come from far,
unto whom a messenger was sent; and, lo, they came: for whom thou didst wash
thyself, paintedst thy eyes, and deckedst thyself with ornaments,

Ezekiel 23:41 And satest upon a stately bed, and a table prepared before it,
whereupon thou hast set mine incense and mine oil.

Ezekiel 23:42 And a voice of a multitude being at ease was with her: and
with the men of the common sort were brought Sabeans from the wilderness,
which put bracelets upon their hands, and beautiful crowns upon their heads.

Ezekiel 23:43 Then said I unto her that was old in adulteries, Will they now
commit whoredoms with her, and she with them?

Ezekiel 23:44 Yet they went in unto her, as they go in unto a woman that
playeth the harlot: so went they in unto Aholah and unto Aholibah, the lewd
women.

Ezekiel 23:45 And the righteous men, they shall judge them after the manner
of adulteresses, and after the manner of women that shed blood; because they
are adulteresses, and blood is in their hands.

Ezekiel 23:46 For thus saith the Lord GOD; I will bring up a company upon
them, and will give them to be removed and spoiled.

Ezekiel 23:47 And the company shall stone them with stones, and dispatch
them with their swords; they shall slay their sons and their daughters, and
burn up their houses with fire.

Ezekiel 23:48 Thus will I cause lewdness to cease out of the land, that all
women may be taught not to do after your lewdness.

Ezekiel 23:49 And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you, and ye shall
bear the sins of your idols: and ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 24:1 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day
of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 24:2 Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same
day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day.

Ezekiel 24:3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto
them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water
into it:

Ezekiel 24:4 Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the
thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones.

Ezekiel 24:5 Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it,
and make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein.

Ezekiel 24:6 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to
the pot whose scum is therein, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it
out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it.

Ezekiel 24:7 For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the top
of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it with dust;

Ezekiel 24:8 That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have
set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not be covered.

Ezekiel 24:9 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I
will even make the pile for fire great.

Ezekiel 24:10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it
well, and let the bones be burned.

Ezekiel 24:11 Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it
may be hot, and may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it,
that the scum of it may be consumed.

Ezekiel 24:12 She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went
not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire.

Ezekiel 24:13 In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and
thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more,
till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee.

Ezekiel 24:14 I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass, and I will
do it; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent;
according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 24:15 Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 24:16 Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine
eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep, neither shall thy
tears run down.

Ezekiel 24:17 Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire
of thine head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy
lips, and eat not the bread of men.

Ezekiel 24:18 So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife
died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.

Ezekiel 24:19 And the people said unto me, Wilt thou not tell us what these
things are to us, that thou doest so?

Ezekiel 24:20 Then I answered them, The word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

Ezekiel 24:21 Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the
desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your
daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the sword.

Ezekiel 24:22 And ye shall do as I have done: ye shall not cover your lips,
nor eat the bread of men.

Ezekiel 24:23 And your tires shall be upon your heads, and your shoes upon
your feet: ye shall not mourn nor weep; but ye shall pine away for your
iniquities, and mourn one toward another.

Ezekiel 24:24 Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign: according to all that he hath
done shall ye do: and when this cometh, ye shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 24:25 Also, thou son of man, shall it not be in the day when I take
from them their strength, the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes,
and that whereupon they set their minds, their sons and their daughters,

Ezekiel 24:26 That he that escapeth in that day shall come unto thee, to
cause thee to hear it with thine ears?

Ezekiel 24:27 In that day shall thy mouth be opened to him which is escaped,
and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb: and thou shalt be a sign unto them;
and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 25:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 25:2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy
against them;

Ezekiel 25:3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus
saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my sanctuary, when it
was profaned; and against the land of Israel, when it was desolate; and
against the house of Judah, when they went into captivity;

Ezekiel 25:4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east
for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee, and make their
dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.

Ezekiel 25:5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites a
couchingplace for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 25:6 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine
hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with all thy despite
against the land of Israel;

Ezekiel 25:7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and
will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut thee off from the
people, and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries: I will destroy
thee; and thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 25:8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say,
Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;

Ezekiel 25:9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the
cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory of the country,
Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,

Ezekiel 25:10 Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give
them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered among the
nations.

Ezekiel 25:11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know
that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 25:12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against
the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly offended, and
revenged himself upon them;

Ezekiel 25:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out
mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it; and I will make
it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.

Ezekiel 25:14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people
Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and according to my
fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 25:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by
revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to destroy it for
the old hatred;

Ezekiel 25:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out
mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the Cherethims, and destroy
the remnant of the sea coast.

Ezekiel 25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious
rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall lay my vengeance
upon them.

Ezekiel 26:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of
the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 26:2 Son of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem,
Aha, she is broken that was the gates of the people: she is turned unto me: I
shall be replenished, now she is laid waste:

Ezekiel 26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee, as the sea causeth
his waves to come up.

Ezekiel 26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her
towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her like the top of a
rock.

Ezekiel 26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of
the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD: and it shall become a spoil
to the nations.

Ezekiel 26:6 And her daughters which are in the field shall be slain by the
sword; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the north, with horses,
and with chariots, and with horsemen, and companies, and much people.

Ezekiel 26:8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field: and he
shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against thee, and lift up the
buckler against thee.

Ezekiel 26:9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with his
axes he shall break down thy towers.

Ezekiel 26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall
cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the horsemen, and of the
wheels, and of the chariots, when he shall enter into thy gates, as men enter
into a city wherein is made a breach.

Ezekiel 26:11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy
streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong garrisons shall
go down to the ground.

Ezekiel 26:12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey of
thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and destroy thy pleasant
houses: and they shall lay thy stones and thy timber and thy dust in the midst
of the water.

Ezekiel 26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the
sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.

Ezekiel 26:14 And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a
place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I the LORD have
spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles shake at
the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the slaughter is made in the
midst of thee?

Ezekiel 26:16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their
thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered garments: they
shall clothe themselves with trembling; they shall sit upon the ground, and
shall tremble at every moment, and be astonished at thee.

Ezekiel 26:17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to
thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring men, the
renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which
cause their terror to be on all that haunt it!

Ezekiel 26:18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the
isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.

Ezekiel 26:19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate
city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall bring up the deep
upon thee, and great waters shall cover thee;

Ezekiel 26:20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the
pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the low parts of the
earth, in places desolate of old, with them that go down to the pit, that thou
be not inhabited; and I shall set glory in the land of the living;

Ezekiel 26:21 I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more: though
thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 27:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 27:2 Now, thou son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyrus;

Ezekiel 27:3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of the
sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of perfect beauty.

Ezekiel 27:4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have
perfected thy beauty.

Ezekiel 27:5 They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they
have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.

Ezekiel 27:6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company of
the Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out of the isles of
Chittim.

Ezekiel 27:7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou
spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles of Elishah was
that which covered thee.

Ezekiel 27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy wise
men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.

Ezekiel 27:9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee thy
calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were in thee to occupy
thy merchandise.

Ezekiel 27:10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army, thy
men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they set forth thy
comeliness.

Ezekiel 27:11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round
about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their shields upon
thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty perfect.

Ezekiel 27:12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all
kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded in thy fairs.

Ezekiel 27:13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they
traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.

Ezekiel 27:14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses
and horsemen and mules.

Ezekiel 27:15 The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the
merchandise of thine hand: they brought thee for a present horns of ivory and
ebony.

Ezekiel 27:16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares
of thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds, purple, and broidered
work, and fine linen, and coral, and agate.

Ezekiel 27:17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they
traded in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey, and oil, and
balm.

Ezekiel 27:18 Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of thy
making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of Helbon, and white
wool.

Ezekiel 27:19 Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs:
bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.

Ezekiel 27:20 Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots.

Ezekiel 27:21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee
in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy merchants.

Ezekiel 27:22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants:
they occupied in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with all precious
stones, and gold.

Ezekiel 27:23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur,
and Chilmad, were thy merchants.

Ezekiel 27:24 These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue
clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel, bound with cords,
and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.

Ezekiel 27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou
wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the seas.

Ezekiel 27:26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind
hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.

Ezekiel 27:27 Thy riches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and
thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise, and all thy men
of war, that are in thee, and in all thy company which is in the midst of
thee, shall fall into the midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.

Ezekiel 27:28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

Ezekiel 27:29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots
of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand upon the land;

Ezekiel 27:30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and
shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads, they shall wallow
themselves in the ashes:

Ezekiel 27:31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird
them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with bitterness of heart and
bitter wailing.

Ezekiel 27:32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for
thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus, like the
destroyed in the midst of the sea?

Ezekiel 27:33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many
people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the multitude of thy
riches and of thy merchandise.

Ezekiel 27:34 In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the
depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in the midst of thee
shall fall.

Ezekiel 27:35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee,
and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled in their
countenance.

Ezekiel 27:36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt
be a terror, and never shalt be any more.

Ezekiel 28:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in
the seat of God, in the midst of the seas; yet thou art a man, and not God,
though thou set thine heart as the heart of God:

Ezekiel 28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that
they can hide from thee:

Ezekiel 28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten
thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures:

Ezekiel 28:5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffic hast thou increased thy
riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches:

Ezekiel 28:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine
heart as the heart of God;

Ezekiel 28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the
terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords against the beauty
of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy brightness.

Ezekiel 28:8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the
deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.

Ezekiel 28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but
thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

Ezekiel 28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of
strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 28:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and
say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the sum, full of
wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Ezekiel 28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone
was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx,
and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the
workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day
that thou wast created.

Ezekiel 28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set
thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down
in the midst of the stones of fire.

Ezekiel 28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee.

Ezekiel 28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst
of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as
profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee, O covering
cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

Ezekiel 28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast thee to the
ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they may behold thee.

Ezekiel 28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine
iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffic; therefore will I bring forth a
fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring thee to
ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that behold thee.

Ezekiel 28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished
at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any more.

Ezekiel 28:20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 28:21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against
it,

Ezekiel 28:22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they shall know that
I am the LORD, when I shall have executed judgments in her, and shall be
sanctified in her.

Ezekiel 28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her
streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her by the sword upon
her on every side; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 28:24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of
Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about them, that despised
them; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 28:25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house
of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and shall be
sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then shall they dwell in their
land that I have given to my servant Jacob.

Ezekiel 28:26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses,
and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence, when I have
executed judgments upon all those that despise them round about them; and they
shall know that I am the LORD their God.

Ezekiel 29:1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of
the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 29:2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:

Ezekiel 29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in the midst of his
rivers, which hath said, My river is mine own, and I have made it for myself.

Ezekiel 29:4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of
thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up out of the midst
of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers shall stick unto thy scales.

Ezekiel 29:5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all
the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields; thou shalt not
be brought together, nor gathered: I have given thee for meat to the beasts of
the field and to the fowls of the heaven.

Ezekiel 29:6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the LORD,
because they have been a staff of reed to the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 29:7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and
rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou brakest, and
madest all their loins to be at a stand.

Ezekiel 29:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a sword
upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.

Ezekiel 29:9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they
shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river is mine, and I
have made it.

Ezekiel 29:10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers,
and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate, from the tower
of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.

Ezekiel 29:11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall
pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.

Ezekiel 29:12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the
countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities that are laid
waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will scatter the Egyptians among
the nations, and will disperse them through the countries.

Ezekiel 29:13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I
gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were scattered:

Ezekiel 29:14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause
them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of their habitation;
and they shall be there a base kingdom.

Ezekiel 29:15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt
itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them, that they shall
no more rule over the nations.

Ezekiel 29:16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel,
which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall look after them:
but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 29:17 And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the
first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

Ezekiel 29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to
serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald, and every
shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyrus, for the
service that he had served against it:

Ezekiel 29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the
land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he shall take her
multitude, and take her spoil, and take her prey; and it shall be the wages
for his army.

Ezekiel 29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he
served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 29:21 In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to
bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in the midst of them;
and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 30:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl ye,
Woe worth the day!

Ezekiel 30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a cloudy
day; it shall be the time of the heathen.

Ezekiel 30:4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be in
Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they shall take away her
multitude, and her foundations shall be broken down.

Ezekiel 30:5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people, and
Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall fall with them by the
sword.

Ezekiel 30:6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall;
and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of Syene shall they
fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 30:7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that
are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the cities that are
wasted.

Ezekiel 30:8 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire
in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.

Ezekiel 30:9 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make
the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon them, as in the
day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.

Ezekiel 30:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of
Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.

Ezekiel 30:11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall
be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their swords against
Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.

Ezekiel 30:12 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the
hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all that is therein,
by the hand of strangers: I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 30:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and I
will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall be no more a
prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a fear in the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 30:14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan,
and will execute judgments in No.

Ezekiel 30:15 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I
will cut off the multitude of No.

Ezekiel 30:16 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and
No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses daily.

Ezekiel 30:17 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword:
and these cities shall go into captivity.

Ezekiel 30:18 At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall
break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength shall cease in
her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and her daughters shall go into
captivity.

Ezekiel 30:19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know
that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 30:20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month,
in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

Ezekiel 30:21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a roller to bind it, to
make it strong to hold the sword.

Ezekiel 30:22 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong, and that which was
broken; and I will cause the sword to fall out of his hand.

Ezekiel 30:23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will
disperse them through the countries.

Ezekiel 30:24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put
my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he shall groan
before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded man.

Ezekiel 30:25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the
arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when
I shall put my sword into the hand of the king of Babylon, and he shall
stretch it out upon the land of Egypt.

Ezekiel 30:26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and
disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 31:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 31:2 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his
multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?

Ezekiel 31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair branches,
and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature; and his top was among the
thick boughs.

Ezekiel 31:4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with her
rivers running round about his plants, and sent out her little rivers unto all
the trees of the field.

Ezekiel 31:5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the
field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became long because of
the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.

Ezekiel 31:6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and
under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young,
and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

Ezekiel 31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his
branches: for his root was by great waters.

Ezekiel 31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir
trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were not like his
branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was like unto him in his beauty.

Ezekiel 31:9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that
all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied him.

Ezekiel 31:10 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up
thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick boughs, and his
heart is lifted up in his height;

Ezekiel 31:11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one
of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven him out for his
wickedness.

Ezekiel 31:12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off,
and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys his branches are
fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the rivers of the land; and all the
people of the earth are gone down from his shadow, and have left him.

Ezekiel 31:13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and
all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:

Ezekiel 31:14 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt
themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among the thick
boughs, neither their trees stand up in their height, all that drink water:
for they are all delivered unto death, to the nether parts of the earth, in
the midst of the children of men, with them that go down to the pit.

Ezekiel 31:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the
grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I restrained the
floods thereof, and the great waters were stayed: and I caused Lebanon to
mourn for him, and all the trees of the field fainted for him.

Ezekiel 31:16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I
cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and all the trees
of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all that drink water, shall be
comforted in the nether parts of the earth.

Ezekiel 31:17 They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain
with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under his shadow in the
midst of the heathen.

Ezekiel 31:18 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the
trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees of Eden unto the
nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised
with them that be slain by the sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 32:1 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 32:2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt,
and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations, and thou art as a
whale in the seas: and thou camest forth with thy rivers, and troubledst the
waters with thy feet, and fouledst their rivers.

Ezekiel 32:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will therefore spread out my net
over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring thee up in my
net.

Ezekiel 32:4 Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth
upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the heaven to remain upon
thee, and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth with thee.

Ezekiel 32:5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the
valleys with thy height.

Ezekiel 32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou
swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full of thee.

Ezekiel 32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and
make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a cloud, and the moon
shall not give her light.

Ezekiel 32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee, and
set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 32:9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring
thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which thou hast not
known.

Ezekiel 32:10 Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings
shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my sword before them;
and they shall tremble at every moment, every man for his own life, in the day
of thy fall.

Ezekiel 32:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon
shall come upon thee.

Ezekiel 32:12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to
fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall spoil the pomp
of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.

Ezekiel 32:13 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the
great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more, nor the
hoofs of beasts trouble them.

Ezekiel 32:14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to
run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 32:15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country
shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall smite all them
that dwell therein, then shall they know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 32:16 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the
daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament for her, even for
Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 32:17 It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day
of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 32:18 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them
down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto the nether parts
of the earth, with them that go down into the pit.

Ezekiel 32:19 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid with
the uncircumcised.

Ezekiel 32:20 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the
sword: she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all her multitudes.

Ezekiel 32:21 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the
midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down, they lie
uncircumcised, slain by the sword.

Ezekiel 32:22 Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him:
all of them slain, fallen by the sword:

Ezekiel 32:23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company
is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the sword, which caused
terror in the land of the living.

Ezekiel 32:24 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all
of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down uncircumcised into the
nether parts of the earth, which caused their terror in the land of the
living; yet have they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit.

Ezekiel 32:25 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her
multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by
the sword: though their terror was caused in the land of the living, yet have
they borne their shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the
midst of them that be slain.

Ezekiel 32:26 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are
round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword, though they
caused their terror in the land of the living.

Ezekiel 32:27 And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the
uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons of war: and they
have laid their swords under their heads, but their iniquities shall be upon
their bones, though they were the terror of the mighty in the land of the
living.

Ezekiel 32:28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised,
and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.

Ezekiel 32:29 There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with
their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword: they shall lie with
the uncircumcised, and with them that go down to the pit.

Ezekiel 32:30 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the
Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their terror they are
ashamed of their might; and they lie uncircumcised with them that be slain by
the sword, and bear their shame with them that go down to the pit.

Ezekiel 32:31 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his
multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword, saith the Lord
GOD.

Ezekiel 32:32 For I have caused my terror in the land of the living: and he
shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that are slain with
the sword, even Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 33:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 33:2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto
them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the land take a man
of their coasts, and set him for their watchman:

Ezekiel 33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people;

Ezekiel 33:4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh not
warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be upon his own
head.

Ezekiel 33:5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his
blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

Ezekiel 33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the
trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and take any person
from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity; but his blood will I
require at the watchman's hand.

Ezekiel 33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the
house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my mouth, and warn them
from me.

Ezekiel 33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely
die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way, that wicked man
shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thine hand.

Ezekiel 33:9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from
it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his iniquity; but thou
hast delivered thy soul.

Ezekiel 33:10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel;
Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be upon us, and we
pine away in them, how should we then live?

Ezekiel 33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no
pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and
live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways; for why will ye die, O house of
Israel?

Ezekiel 33:12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy
people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of
his transgression: as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall
thereby in the day that he turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the
righteous be able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.

Ezekiel 33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live;
if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his
righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his iniquity that he hath
committed, he shall die for it.

Ezekiel 33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if
he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;

Ezekiel 33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had
robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing iniquity; he shall
surely live, he shall not die.

Ezekiel 33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned
unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.

Ezekiel 33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the Lord is not
equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.

Ezekiel 33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.

Ezekiel 33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which
is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.

Ezekiel 33:20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of
Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.

Ezekiel 33:21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in
the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that had escaped out
of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is smitten.

Ezekiel 33:22 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening, afore he
that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the
morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more dumb.

Ezekiel 33:23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 33:24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of
Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the land: but we are
many; the land is given us for inheritance.

Ezekiel 33:25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with
the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed blood: and shall
ye possess the land?

Ezekiel 33:26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile
every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?

Ezekiel 33:27 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live,
surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword, and him that is in
the open field will I give to the beasts to be devoured, and they that be in
the forts and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.

Ezekiel 33:28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her
strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, that none
shall pass through.

Ezekiel 33:29 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the
land most desolate because of all their abominations which they have
committed.

Ezekiel 33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are
talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak
one to another, every one to his brother, saying, Come, I pray you, and hear
what is the word that cometh forth from the LORD.

Ezekiel 33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit
before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they will not do them:
for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goeth after their
covetousness.

Ezekiel 33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that
hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for they hear thy
words, but they do them not.

Ezekiel 33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall
they know that a prophet hath been among them.

Ezekiel 34:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel, prophesy,
and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the shepherds; Woe be to the
shepherds of Israel that do feed themselves! should not the shepherds feed the
flocks?

Ezekiel 34:3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them
that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.

Ezekiel 34:4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed
that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was broken, neither
have ye brought again that which was driven away, neither have ye sought that
which was lost; but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

Ezekiel 34:5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and they
became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they were scattered.

Ezekiel 34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every
high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of the earth, and
none did search or seek after them.

Ezekiel 34:7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

Ezekiel 34:8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became a
prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field, because there was
no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search for my flock, but the shepherds
fed themselves, and fed not my flock;

Ezekiel 34:9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;

Ezekiel 34:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds;
and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to cease from
feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed themselves any more; for I
will deliver my flock from their mouth, that they may not be meat for them.

Ezekiel 34:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both
search my sheep, and seek them out.

Ezekiel 34:12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is
among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will
deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy
and dark day.

Ezekiel 34:13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them
from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon
the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of the
country.

Ezekiel 34:14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high
mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie in a good fold,
and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.

Ezekiel 34:15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith
the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 34:16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which
was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen
that which was sick: but I will destroy the fat and the strong; I will feed
them with judgment.

Ezekiel 34:17 And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I
judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he goats.

Ezekiel 34:18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good
pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures?
and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your
feet?

Ezekiel 34:19 And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with
your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.

Ezekiel 34:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even
I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.

Ezekiel 34:21 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed
all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them abroad;

Ezekiel 34:22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a
prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.

Ezekiel 34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed
them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall be their
shepherd.

Ezekiel 34:24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a
prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.

Ezekiel 34:25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause
the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell safely in the
wilderness, and sleep in the woods.

Ezekiel 34:26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a
blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his season; there shall
be showers of blessing.

Ezekiel 34:27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth
shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their land, and shall know
that I am the LORD, when I have broken the bands of their yoke, and delivered
them out of the hand of those that served themselves of them.

Ezekiel 34:28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall
the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell safely, and none shall
make them afraid.

Ezekiel 34:29 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall
be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the shame of the
heathen any more.

Ezekiel 34:30 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them,
and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 34:31 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am
your God, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 35:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 35:2 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy
against it,

Ezekiel 35:3 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount Seir,
I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand against thee, and I will
make thee most desolate.

Ezekiel 35:4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and
thou shalt know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 35:5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the
blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their
calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:

Ezekiel 35:6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee
unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not hated blood, even
blood shall pursue thee.

Ezekiel 35:7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it
him that passeth out and him that returneth.

Ezekiel 35:8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy hills,
and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are slain with
the sword.

Ezekiel 35:9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall
not return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 35:10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two
countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the LORD was there:

Ezekiel 35:11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do
according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which thou hast used out
of thy hatred against them; and I will make myself known among them, when I
have judged thee.

Ezekiel 35:12 And thou shalt know that I am the LORD, and that I have heard
all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the mountains of Israel,
saying, They are laid desolate, they are given us to consume.

Ezekiel 35:13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have
multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.

Ezekiel 35:14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I
will make thee desolate.

Ezekiel 35:15 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of
Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou shalt be
desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of it: and they shall know
that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 36:1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel,
and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:

Ezekiel 36:2 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against
you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:

Ezekiel 36:3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because
they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every side, that ye might
be a possession unto the residue of the heathen, and ye are taken up in the
lips of talkers, and are an infamy of the people:

Ezekiel 36:4 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord
GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the hills, to the
rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate wastes, and to the cities that are
forsaken, which became a prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that
are round about;

Ezekiel 36:5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my
jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and against all
Idumea, which have appointed my land into their possession with the joy of all
their heart, with despiteful minds, to cast it out for a prey.

Ezekiel 36:6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto
the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, Thus saith
the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, because ye
have borne the shame of the heathen:

Ezekiel 36:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand,
Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their shame.

Ezekiel 36:8 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your
branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for they are at hand to
come.

Ezekiel 36:9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye
shall be tilled and sown:

Ezekiel 36:10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel, even
all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the wastes shall be builded:

Ezekiel 36:11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall
increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and
will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am
the LORD.

Ezekiel 36:12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel;
and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their inheritance, and thou
shalt no more henceforth bereave them of men.

Ezekiel 36:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land
devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations;

Ezekiel 36:14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy
nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 36:15 Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the
heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the people any more,
neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 36:16 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 36:17 Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land,
they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their way was before me
as the uncleanness of a removed woman.

Ezekiel 36:18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they
had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it:

Ezekiel 36:19 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were
dispersed through the countries: according to their way and according to their
doings I judged them.

Ezekiel 36:20 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went,
they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are the people of
the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.

Ezekiel 36:21 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel
had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.

Ezekiel 36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord
GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy name's
sake, which ye have profaned among the heathen, whither ye went.

Ezekiel 36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among
the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and the heathen
shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD, when I shall be sanctified
in you before their eyes.

Ezekiel 36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out
of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.

Ezekiel 36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be
clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will I cleanse you.

Ezekiel 36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh, and I will
give you an heart of flesh.

Ezekiel 36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in
my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.

Ezekiel 36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;
and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.

Ezekiel 36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will
call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine upon you.

Ezekiel 36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of
the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine among the heathen.

Ezekiel 36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings
that were not good, and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight for your
iniquities and for your abominations.

Ezekiel 36:32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known
unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house of Israel.

Ezekiel 36:33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed
you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the cities, and
the wastes shall be builded.

Ezekiel 36:34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate
in the sight of all that passed by.

Ezekiel 36:35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like
the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined cities are become
fenced, and are inhabited.

Ezekiel 36:36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that
I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was desolate: I the
LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.

Ezekiel 36:37 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be inquired of by
the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them with men like a
flock.

Ezekiel 36:38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn
feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men: and they shall
know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the
spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley which was full
of bones,

Ezekiel 37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there
were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very dry.

Ezekiel 37:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.

Ezekiel 37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto
them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.

Ezekiel 37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause
breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:

Ezekiel 37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon
you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye
shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there
was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his
bone.

Ezekiel 37:8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon
them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath in them.

Ezekiel 37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of
man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from the four winds, O
breath, and breathe upon these slain, that they may live.

Ezekiel 37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into
them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Ezekiel 37:11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole
house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost:
we are cut off for our parts.

Ezekiel 37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to come up out of
your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel.

Ezekiel 37:13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your
graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,

Ezekiel 37:14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall
place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it,
and performed it, saith the LORD.

Ezekiel 37:15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon
it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions: then take
another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, and for
all the house of Israel his companions:

Ezekiel 37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall
become one in thine hand.

Ezekiel 37:18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee,
saying, Wilt thou not show us what thou meanest by these?

Ezekiel 37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take
the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the tribes of Israel
his fellows, and will put them with him, even with the stick of Judah, and
make them one stick, and they shall be one in mine hand.

Ezekiel 37:20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand
before their eyes.

Ezekiel 37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither they be gone, and
will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land:

Ezekiel 37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains
of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they shall be no more
two nations, neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms any more at all:

Ezekiel 37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their
idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their transgressions:
but I will save them out of all their dwellingplaces, wherein they have
sinned, and will cleanse them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their
God.

Ezekiel 37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all
shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments, and observe my
statutes, and do them.

Ezekiel 37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob
my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall dwell therein, even
they, and their children, and their children's children for ever: and my
servant David shall be their prince for ever.

Ezekiel 37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall
be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them, and multiply
them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of them for evermore.

Ezekiel 37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their
God, and they shall be my people.

Ezekiel 37:28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,
when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

Ezekiel 38:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,

Ezekiel 38:2 Son of man, set thy face against Gog, the land of Magog, the
chief prince of Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him,

Ezekiel 38:3 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Gog, the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal:

Ezekiel 38:4 And I will turn thee back, and put hooks into thy jaws, and I
will bring thee forth, and all thine army, horses and horsemen, all of them
clothed with all sorts of armour, even a great company with bucklers and
shields, all of them handling swords:

Ezekiel 38:5 Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them; all of them with shield
and helmet:

Ezekiel 38:6 Gomer, and all his bands; the house of Togarmah of the north
quarters, and all his bands: and many people with thee.

Ezekiel 38:7 Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself, thou, and all thy
company that are assembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto them.

Ezekiel 38:8 After many days thou shalt be visited: in the latter years thou
shalt come into the land that is brought back from the sword, and is gathered
out of many people, against the mountains of Israel, which have been always
waste: but it is brought forth out of the nations, and they shall dwell safely
all of them.

Ezekiel 38:9 Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm, thou shalt be like a
cloud to cover the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many people with thee.

Ezekiel 38:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; It shall also come to pass, that at
the same time shall things come into thy mind, and thou shalt think an evil
thought:

Ezekiel 38:11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the land of unwalled
villages; I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely, all of them
dwelling without walls, and having neither bars nor gates,

Ezekiel 38:12 To take a spoil, and to take a prey; to turn thine hand upon
the desolate places that are now inhabited, and upon the people that are
gathered out of the nations, which have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in
the midst of the land.

Ezekiel 38:13 Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants of Tarshish, with all the
young lions thereof, shall say unto thee, Art thou come to take a spoil? hast
thou gathered thy company to take a prey? to carry away silver and gold, to
take away cattle and goods, to take a great spoil?

Ezekiel 38:14 Therefore, son of man, prophesy and say unto Gog, Thus saith
the Lord GOD; In that day when my people of Israel dwelleth safely, shalt thou
not know it?

Ezekiel 38:15 And thou shalt come from thy place out of the north parts,
thou, and many people with thee, all of them riding upon horses, a great
company, and a mighty army:

Ezekiel 38:16 And thou shalt come up against my people of Israel, as a cloud
to cover the land; it shall be in the latter days, and I will bring thee
against my land, that the heathen may know me, when I shall be sanctified in
thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

Ezekiel 38:17 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Art thou he of whom I have spoken in
old time by my servants the prophets of Israel, which prophesied in those days
many years that I would bring thee against them?

Ezekiel 38:18 And it shall come to pass at the same time when Gog shall come
against the land of Israel, saith the Lord GOD, that my fury shall come up in
my face.

Ezekiel 38:19 For in my jealousy and in the fire of my wrath have I spoken,
Surely in that day there shall be a great shaking in the land of Israel;

Ezekiel 38:20 So that the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the heaven,
and the beasts of the field, and all creeping things that creep upon the
earth, and all the men that are upon the face of the earth, shall shake at my
presence, and the mountains shall be thrown down, and the steep places shall
fall, and every wall shall fall to the ground.

Ezekiel 38:21 And I will call for a sword against him throughout all my
mountains, saith the Lord GOD: every man's sword shall be against his brother.

Ezekiel 38:22 And I will plead against him with pestilence and with blood;
and I will rain upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the many people that are
with him, an overflowing rain, and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Ezekiel 38:23 Thus will I magnify myself, and sanctify myself; and I will be
known in the eyes of many nations, and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:1 Therefore, thou son of man, prophesy against Gog, and say, Thus
saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief prince of
Meshech and Tubal:

Ezekiel 39:2 And I will turn thee back, and leave but the sixth part of
thee, and will cause thee to come up from the north parts, and will bring thee
upon the mountains of Israel:

Ezekiel 39:3 And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand, and will cause
thine arrows to fall out of thy right hand.

Ezekiel 39:4 Thou shalt fall upon the mountains of Israel, thou, and all thy
bands, and the people that is with thee: I will give thee unto the ravenous
birds of every sort, and to the beasts of the field to be devoured.

Ezekiel 39:5 Thou shalt fall upon the open field: for I have spoken it,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 39:6 And I will send a fire on Magog, and among them that dwell
carelessly in the isles: and they shall know that I am the LORD.

Ezekiel 39:7 So will I make my holy name known in the midst of my people
Israel; and I will not let them pollute my holy name any more: and the heathen
shall know that I am the LORD, the Holy One in Israel.

Ezekiel 39:8 Behold, it is come, and it is done, saith the Lord GOD; this is
the day whereof I have spoken.

Ezekiel 39:9 And they that dwell in the cities of Israel shall go forth, and
shall set on fire and burn the weapons, both the shields and the bucklers, the
bows and the arrows, and the handstaves, and the spears, and they shall burn
them with fire seven years:

Ezekiel 39:10 So that they shall take no wood out of the field, neither cut
down any out of the forests; for they shall burn the weapons with fire: and
they shall spoil those that spoiled them, and rob those that robbed them,
saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 39:11 And it shall come to pass in that day, that I will give unto
Gog a place there of graves in Israel, the valley of the passengers on the
east of the sea: and it shall stop the noses of the passengers: and there
shall they bury Gog and all his multitude: and they shall call it The valley
of Hamongog.

Ezekiel 39:12 And seven months shall the house of Israel be burying of them,
that they may cleanse the land.

Ezekiel 39:13 Yea, all the people of the land shall bury them; and it shall
be to them a renown the day that I shall be glorified, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 39:14 And they shall sever out men of continual employment, passing
through the land to bury with the passengers those that remain upon the face
of the earth, to cleanse it: after the end of seven months shall they search.

Ezekiel 39:15 And the passengers that pass through the land, when any seeth
a man's bone, then shall he set up a sign by it, till the buriers have buried
it in the valley of Hamongog.

Ezekiel 39:16 And also the name of the city shall be Hamonah. Thus shall
they cleanse the land.

Ezekiel 39:17 And, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD; Speak unto
every feathered fowl, and to every beast of the field, Assemble yourselves,
and come; gather yourselves on every side to my sacrifice that I do sacrifice
for you, even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel, that ye may eat
flesh, and drink blood.

Ezekiel 39:18 Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty, and drink the blood of
the princes of the earth, of rams, of lambs, and of goats, of bullocks, all of
them fatlings of Bashan.

Ezekiel 39:19 And ye shall eat fat till ye be full, and drink blood till ye
be drunken, of my sacrifice which I have sacrificed for you.

Ezekiel 39:20 Thus ye shall be filled at my table with horses and chariots,
with mighty men, and with all men of war, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 39:21 And I will set my glory among the heathen, and all the heathen
shall see my judgment that I have executed, and my hand that I have laid upon
them.

Ezekiel 39:22 So the house of Israel shall know that I am the LORD their God
from that day and forward.

Ezekiel 39:23 And the heathen shall know that the house of Israel went into
captivity for their iniquity: because they trespassed against me, therefore
hid I my face from them, and gave them into the hand of their enemies: so fell
they all by the sword.

Ezekiel 39:24 According to their uncleanness and according to their
transgressions have I done unto them, and hid my face from them.

Ezekiel 39:25 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Now will I bring again the
captivity of Jacob, and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel, and will be
jealous for my holy name;

Ezekiel 39:26 After that they have borne their shame, and all their
trespasses whereby they have trespassed against me, when they dwelt safely in
their land, and none made them afraid.

Ezekiel 39:27 When I have brought them again from the people, and gathered
them out of their enemies' lands, and am sanctified in them in the sight of
many nations;

Ezekiel 39:28 Then shall they know that I am the LORD their God, which
caused them to be led into captivity among the heathen: but I have gathered
them unto their own land, and have left none of them any more there.

Ezekiel 39:29 Neither will I hide my face any more from them: for I have
poured out my spirit upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 40:1 In the five and twentieth year of our captivity, in the
beginning of the year, in the tenth day of the month, in the fourteenth year
after that the city was smitten, in the selfsame day the hand of the LORD was
upon me, and brought me thither.

Ezekiel 40:2 In the visions of God brought he me into the land of Israel,
and set me upon a very high mountain, by which was as the frame of a city on
the south.

Ezekiel 40:3 And he brought me thither, and, behold, there was a man, whose
appearance was like the appearance of brass, with a line of flax in his hand,
and a measuring reed; and he stood in the gate.

Ezekiel 40:4 And the man said unto me, Son of man, behold with thine eyes,
and hear with thine ears, and set thine heart upon all that I shall show thee;
for to the intent that I might show them unto thee art thou brought hither:
declare all that thou seest to the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 40:5 And behold a wall on the outside of the house round about, and
in the man's hand a measuring reed of six cubits long by the cubit and an hand
breadth: so he measured the breadth of the building, one reed; and the height,
one reed.

Ezekiel 40:6 Then came he unto the gate which looketh toward the east, and
went up the stairs thereof, and measured the threshold of the gate, which was
one reed broad; and the other threshold of the gate, which was one reed broad.

Ezekiel 40:7 And every little chamber was one reed long, and one reed broad;
and between the little chambers were five cubits; and the threshold of the
gate by the porch of the gate within was one reed.

Ezekiel 40:8 He measured also the porch of the gate within, one reed.

Ezekiel 40:9 Then measured he the porch of the gate, eight cubits; and the
posts thereof, two cubits; and the porch of the gate was inward.

Ezekiel 40:10 And the little chambers of the gate eastward were three on
this side, and three on that side; they three were of one measure: and the
posts had one measure on this side and on that side.

Ezekiel 40:11 And he measured the breadth of the entry of the gate, ten
cubits; and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.

Ezekiel 40:12 The space also before the little chambers was one cubit on
this side, and the space was one cubit on that side: and the little chambers
were six cubits on this side, and six cubits on that side.

Ezekiel 40:13 He measured then the gate from the roof of one little chamber
to the roof of another: the breadth was five and twenty cubits, door against
door.

Ezekiel 40:14 He made also posts of threescore cubits, even unto the post of
the court round about the gate.

Ezekiel 40:15 And from the face of the gate of the entrance unto the face of
the porch of the inner gate were fifty cubits.

Ezekiel 40:16 And there were narrow windows to the little chambers, and to
their posts within the gate round about, and likewise to the arches: and
windows were round about inward: and upon each post were palm trees.

Ezekiel 40:17 Then brought he me into the outward court, and, lo, there were
chambers, and a pavement made for the court round about: thirty chambers were
upon the pavement.

Ezekiel 40:18 And the pavement by the side of the gates over against the
length of the gates was the lower pavement.

Ezekiel 40:19 Then he measured the breadth from the forefront of the lower
gate unto the forefront of the inner court without, an hundred cubits eastward
and northward.

Ezekiel 40:20 And the gate of the outward court that looked toward the
north, he measured the length thereof, and the breadth thereof.

Ezekiel 40:21 And the little chambers thereof were three on this side and
three on that side; and the posts thereof and the arches thereof were after
the measure of the first gate: the length thereof was fifty cubits, and the
breadth five and twenty cubits.

Ezekiel 40:22 And their windows, and their arches, and their palm trees, were
after the measure of the gate that looketh toward the east; and they went up
unto it by seven steps; and the arches thereof were before them.

Ezekiel 40:23 And the gate of the inner court was over against the gate
toward the north, and toward the east; and he measured from gate to gate an
hundred cubits.

Ezekiel 40:24 After that he brought me toward the south, and behold a gate
toward the south: and he measured the posts thereof and the arches thereof
according to these measures.

Ezekiel 40:25 And there were windows in it and in the arches thereof round
about, like those windows: the length was fifty cubits, and the breadth five
and twenty cubits.

Ezekiel 40:26 And there were seven steps to go up to it, and the arches
thereof were before them: and it had palm trees, one on this side, and another
on that side, upon the posts thereof.

Ezekiel 40:27 And there was a gate in the inner court toward the south: and
he measured from gate to gate toward the south an hundred cubits.

Ezekiel 40:28 And he brought me to the inner court by the south gate: and he
measured the south gate according to these measures;

Ezekiel 40:29 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, according to these measures: and there were windows in it
and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and five and
twenty cubits broad.

Ezekiel 40:30 And the arches round about were five and twenty cubits long,
and five cubits broad.

Ezekiel 40:31 And the arches thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof: and the going up to it had eight steps.

Ezekiel 40:32 And he brought me into the inner court toward the east: and he
measured the gate according to these measures.

Ezekiel 40:33 And the little chambers thereof, and the posts thereof, and
the arches thereof, were according to these measures: and there were windows
therein and in the arches thereof round about: it was fifty cubits long, and
five and twenty cubits broad.

Ezekiel 40:34 And the arches thereof were toward the outward court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the
going up to it had eight steps.

Ezekiel 40:35 And he brought me to the north gate, and measured it according
to these measures;

Ezekiel 40:36 The little chambers thereof, the posts thereof, and the arches
thereof, and the windows to it round about: the length was fifty cubits, and
the breadth five and twenty cubits.

Ezekiel 40:37 And the posts thereof were toward the utter court; and palm
trees were upon the posts thereof, on this side, and on that side: and the
going up to it had eight steps.

Ezekiel 40:38 And the chambers and the entries thereof were by the posts of
the gates, where they washed the burnt offering.

Ezekiel 40:39 And in the porch of the gate were two tables on this side, and
two tables on that side, to slay thereon the burnt offering and the sin
offering and the trespass offering.

Ezekiel 40:40 And at the side without, as one goeth up to the entry of the
north gate, were two tables; and on the other side, which was at the porch of
the gate, were two tables.

Ezekiel 40:41 Four tables were on this side, and four tables on that side,
by the side of the gate; eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.

Ezekiel 40:42 And the four tables were of hewn stone for the burnt offering,
of a cubit and an half long, and a cubit and an half broad, and one cubit
high: whereupon also they laid the instruments wherewith they slew the burnt
offering and the sacrifice.

Ezekiel 40:43 And within were hooks, an hand broad, fastened round about:
and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.

Ezekiel 40:44 And without the inner gate were the chambers of the singers in
the inner court, which was at the side of the north gate; and their prospect
was toward the south: one at the side of the east gate having the prospect
toward the north.

Ezekiel 40:45 And he said unto me, This chamber, whose prospect is toward
the south, is for the priests, the keepers of the charge of the house.

Ezekiel 40:46 And the chamber whose prospect is toward the north is for the
priests, the keepers of the charge of the altar: these are the sons of Zadok
among the sons of Levi, which come near to the LORD to minister unto him.

Ezekiel 40:47 So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long, and an
hundred cubits broad, foursquare; and the altar that was before the house.

Ezekiel 40:48 And he brought me to the porch of the house, and measured each
post of the porch, five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side: and
the breadth of the gate was three cubits on this side, and three cubits on
that side.

Ezekiel 40:49 The length of the porch was twenty cubits, and the breadth
eleven cubits; and he brought me by the steps whereby they went up to it: and
there were pillars by the posts, one on this side, and another on that side.

Ezekiel 41:1 Afterward he brought me to the temple, and measured the posts,
six cubits broad on the one side, and six cubits broad on the other side,
which was the breadth of the tabernacle.

Ezekiel 41:2 And the breadth of the door was ten cubits: and the sides of
the door were five cubits on the one side, and five cubits on the other side:
and he measured the length thereof, forty cubits: and the breadth, twenty
cubits.

Ezekiel 41:3 Then went he inward, and measured the post of the door, two
cubits; and the door, six cubits; and the breadth of the door, seven cubits.

Ezekiel 41:4 So he measured the length thereof, twenty cubits; and the
breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple: and he said unto me, This is the
most holy place.

Ezekiel 41:5 After he measured the wall of the house, six cubits; and the
breadth of every side chamber, four cubits, round about the house on every
side.

Ezekiel 41:6 And the side chambers were three, one over another, and thirty
in order; and they entered into the wall which was of the house for the side
chambers round about, that they might have hold, but they had not hold in the
wall of the house.

Ezekiel 41:7 And there was an enlarging, and a winding about still upward to
the side chambers: for the winding about of the house went still upward round
about the house: therefore the breadth of the house was still upward, and so
increased from the lowest chamber to the highest by the midst.

Ezekiel 41:8 I saw also the height of the house round about: the foundations
of the side chambers were a full reed of six great cubits.

Ezekiel 41:9 The thickness of the wall, which was for the side chamber
without, was five cubits: and that which was left was the place of the side
chambers that were within.

Ezekiel 41:10 And between the chambers was the wideness of twenty cubits
round about the house on every side.

Ezekiel 41:11 And the doors of the side chambers were toward the place that
was left, one door toward the north, and another door toward the south: and
the breadth of the place that was left was five cubits round about.

Ezekiel 41:12 Now the building that was before the separate place at the end
toward the west was seventy cubits broad; and the wall of the building was
five cubits thick round about, and the length thereof ninety cubits.

Ezekiel 41:13 So he measured the house, an hundred cubits long; and the
separate place, and the building, with the walls thereof, an hundred cubits
long;

Ezekiel 41:14 Also the breadth of the face of the house, and of the separate
place toward the east, an hundred cubits.

Ezekiel 41:15 And he measured the length of the building over against the
separate place which was behind it, and the galleries thereof on the one side
and on the other side, an hundred cubits, with the inner temple, and the
porches of the court;

Ezekiel 41:16 The door posts, and the narrow windows, and the galleries
round about on their three stories, over against the door, ceiled with wood
round about, and from the ground up to the windows, and the windows were
covered;

Ezekiel 41:17 To that above the door, even unto the inner house, and
without, and by all the wall round about within and without, by measure.

Ezekiel 41:18 And it was made with cherubims and palm trees, so that a palm
tree was between a cherub and a cherub; and every cherub had two faces;

Ezekiel 41:19 So that the face of a man was toward the palm tree on the one
side, and the face of a young lion toward the palm tree on the other side: it
was made through all the house round about.

Ezekiel 41:20 From the ground unto above the door were cherubims and palm
trees made, and on the wall of the temple.

Ezekiel 41:21 The posts of the temple were squared, and the face of the
sanctuary; the appearance of the one as the appearance of the other.

Ezekiel 41:22 The altar of wood was three cubits high, and the length
thereof two cubits; and the corners thereof, and the length thereof, and the
walls thereof, were of wood: and he said unto me, This is the table that is
before the LORD.

Ezekiel 41:23 And the temple and the sanctuary had two doors.

Ezekiel 41:24 And the doors had two leaves apiece, two turning leaves; two
leaves for the one door, and two leaves for the other door.

Ezekiel 41:25 And there were made on them, on the doors of the temple,
cherubims and palm trees, like as were made upon the walls; and there were
thick planks upon the face of the porch without.

Ezekiel 41:26 And there were narrow windows and palm trees on the one side
and on the other side, on the sides of the porch, and upon the side chambers
of the house, and thick planks.

Ezekiel 42:1 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, the way toward
the north: and he brought me into the chamber that was over against the
separate place, and which was before the building toward the north.

Ezekiel 42:2 Before the length of an hundred cubits was the north door, and
the breadth was fifty cubits.

Ezekiel 42:3 Over against the twenty cubits which were for the inner court,
and over against the pavement which was for the utter court, was gallery
against gallery in three stories.

Ezekiel 42:4 And before the chambers was a walk of ten cubits breadth
inward, a way of one cubit; and their doors toward the north.

Ezekiel 42:5 Now the upper chambers were shorter: for the galleries were
higher than these, than the lower, and than the middlemost of the building.

Ezekiel 42:6 For they were in three stories, but had not pillars as the
pillars of the courts: therefore the building was straitened more than the
lowest and the middlemost from the ground.

Ezekiel 42:7 And the wall that was without over against the chambers, toward
the utter court on the forepart of the chambers, the length thereof was fifty
cubits.

Ezekiel 42:8 For the length of the chambers that were in the utter court was
fifty cubits: and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits.

Ezekiel 42:9 And from under these chambers was the entry on the east side,
as one goeth into them from the utter court.

Ezekiel 42:10 The chambers were in the thickness of the wall of the court
toward the east, over against the separate place, and over against the
building.

Ezekiel 42:11 And the way before them was like the appearance of the
chambers which were toward the north, as long as they, and as broad as they:
and all their goings out were both according to their fashions, and according
to their doors.

Ezekiel 42:12 And according to the doors of the chambers that were toward
the south was a door in the head of the way, even the way directly before the
wall toward the east, as one entereth into them.

Ezekiel 42:13 Then said he unto me, The north chambers and the south
chambers, which are before the separate place, they be holy chambers, where
the priests that approach unto the LORD shall eat the most holy things: there
shall they lay the most holy things, and the meat offering, and the sin
offering, and the trespass offering; for the place is holy.

Ezekiel 42:14 When the priests enter therein, then shall they not go out of
the holy place into the utter court, but there they shall lay their garments
wherein they minister; for they are holy; and shall put on other garments, and
shall approach to those things which are for the people.

Ezekiel 42:15 Now when he had made an end of measuring the inner house, he
brought me forth toward the gate whose prospect is toward the east, and
measured it round about.

Ezekiel 42:16 He measured the east side with the measuring reed, five
hundred reeds, with the measuring reed round about.

Ezekiel 42:17 He measured the north side, five hundred reeds, with the
measuring reed round about.

Ezekiel 42:18 He measured the south side, five hundred reeds, with the
measuring reed.

Ezekiel 42:19 He turned about to the west side, and measured five hundred
reeds with the measuring reed.

Ezekiel 42:20 He measured it by the four sides: it had a wall round about,
five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad, to make a separation between
the sanctuary and the profane place.

Ezekiel 43:1 Afterward he brought me to the gate, even the gate that looketh
toward the east:

Ezekiel 43:2 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way
of the east: and his voice was like a noise of many waters: and the earth
shined with his glory.

Ezekiel 43:3 And it was according to the appearance of the vision which I
saw, even according to the vision that I saw when I came to destroy the city:
and the visions were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar; and I
fell upon my face.

Ezekiel 43:4 And the glory of the LORD came into the house by the way of the
gate whose prospect is toward the east.

Ezekiel 43:5 So the spirit took me up, and brought me into the inner court;
and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house.

Ezekiel 43:6 And I heard him speaking unto me out of the house; and the man
stood by me.

Ezekiel 43:7 And he said unto me, Son of man, the place of my throne, and
the place of the soles of my feet, where I will dwell in the midst of the
children of Israel for ever, and my holy name, shall the house of Israel no
more defile, neither they, nor their kings, by their whoredom, nor by the
carcases of their kings in their high places.

Ezekiel 43:8 In their setting of their threshold by my thresholds, and their
post by my posts, and the wall between me and them, they have even defiled my
holy name by their abominations that they have committed: wherefore I have
consumed them in mine anger.

Ezekiel 43:9 Now let them put away their whoredom, and the carcases of their
kings, far from me, and I will dwell in the midst of them for ever.

Ezekiel 43:10 Thou son of man, show the house to the house of Israel, that
they may be ashamed of their iniquities: and let them measure the pattern.

Ezekiel 43:11 And if they be ashamed of all that they have done, show them
the form of the house, and the fashion thereof, and the goings out thereof,
and the comings in thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the ordinances
thereof, and all the forms thereof, and all the laws thereof: and write it in
their sight, that they may keep the whole form thereof, and all the ordinances
thereof, and do them.

Ezekiel 43:12 This is the law of the house; Upon the top of the mountain the
whole limit thereof round about shall be most holy. Behold, this is the law of
the house.

Ezekiel 43:13 And these are the measures of the altar after the cubits: The
cubit is a cubit and an hand breadth; even the bottom shall be a cubit, and
the breadth a cubit, and the border thereof by the edge thereof round about
shall be a span: and this shall be the higher place of the altar.

Ezekiel 43:14 And from the bottom upon the ground even to the lower settle
shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit; and from the lesser settle even
to the greater settle shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.

Ezekiel 43:15 So the altar shall be four cubits; and from the altar and
upward shall be four horns.

Ezekiel 43:16 And the altar shall be twelve cubits long, twelve broad,
square in the four squares thereof.

Ezekiel 43:17 And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long and fourteen
broad in the four squares thereof; and the border about it shall be half a
cubit; and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about; and his stairs shall
look toward the east.

Ezekiel 43:18 And he said unto me, Son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD;
These are the ordinances of the altar in the day when they shall make it, to
offer burnt offerings thereon, and to sprinkle blood thereon.

Ezekiel 43:19 And thou shalt give to the priests the Levites that be of the
seed of Zadok, which approach unto me, to minister unto me, saith the Lord
GOD, a young bullock for a sin offering.

Ezekiel 43:20 And thou shalt take of the blood thereof, and put it on the
four horns of it, and on the four corners of the settle, and upon the border
round about: thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.

Ezekiel 43:21 Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering, and he
shall burn it in the appointed place of the house, without the sanctuary.

Ezekiel 43:22 And on the second day thou shalt offer a kid of the goats
without blemish for a sin offering; and they shall cleanse the altar, as they
did cleanse it with the bullock.

Ezekiel 43:23 When thou hast made an end of cleansing it, thou shalt offer a
young bullock without blemish, and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

Ezekiel 43:24 And thou shalt offer them before the LORD, and the priests
shall cast salt upon them, and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering
unto the LORD.

Ezekiel 43:25 Seven days shalt thou prepare every day a goat for a sin
offering: they shall also prepare a young bullock, and a ram out of the flock,
without blemish.

Ezekiel 43:26 Seven days shall they purge the altar and purify it; and they
shall consecrate themselves.

Ezekiel 43:27 And when these days are expired, it shall be, that upon the
eighth day, and so forward, the priests shall make your burnt offerings upon
the altar, and your peace offerings; and I will accept you, saith the Lord
GOD.

Ezekiel 44:1 Then he brought me back the way of the gate of the outward
sanctuary which looketh toward the east; and it was shut.

Ezekiel 44:2 Then said the LORD unto me; This gate shall be shut, it shall
not be opened, and no man shall enter in by it; because the LORD, the God of
Israel, hath entered in by it, therefore it shall be shut.

Ezekiel 44:3 It is for the prince; the prince, he shall sit in it to eat
bread before the LORD; he shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate,
and shall go out by the way of the same.

Ezekiel 44:4 Then brought he me the way of the north gate before the house:
and I looked, and, behold, the glory of the LORD filled the house of the LORD:
and I fell upon my face.

Ezekiel 44:5 And the LORD said unto me, Son of man, mark well, and behold
with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee concerning
all the ordinances of the house of the LORD, and all the laws thereof; and
mark well the entering in of the house, with every going forth of the
sanctuary.

Ezekiel 44:6 And thou shalt say to the rebellious, even to the house of
Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; O ye house of Israel, let it suffice you of
all your abominations,

Ezekiel 44:7 In that ye have brought into my sanctuary strangers,
uncircumcised in heart, and uncircumcised in flesh, to be in my sanctuary, to
pollute it, even my house, when ye offer my bread, the fat and the blood, and
they have broken my covenant because of all your abominations.

Ezekiel 44:8 And ye have not kept the charge of mine holy things: but ye
have set keepers of my charge in my sanctuary for yourselves.

Ezekiel 44:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; No stranger, uncircumcised in heart,
nor uncircumcised in flesh, shall enter into my sanctuary, of any stranger
that is among the children of Israel.

Ezekiel 44:10 And the Levites that are gone away far from me, when Israel
went astray, which went astray away from me after their idols; they shall even
bear their iniquity.

Ezekiel 44:11 Yet they shall be ministers in my sanctuary, having charge at
the gates of the house, and ministering to the house: they shall slay the
burnt offering and the sacrifice for the people, and they shall stand before
them to minister unto them.

Ezekiel 44:12 Because they ministered unto them before their idols, and
caused the house of Israel to fall into iniquity; therefore have I lifted up
mine hand against them, saith the Lord GOD, and they shall bear their
iniquity.

Ezekiel 44:13 And they shall not come near unto me, to do the office of a
priest unto me, nor to come near to any of my holy things, in the most holy
place: but they shall bear their shame, and their abominations which they have
committed.

Ezekiel 44:14 But I will make them keepers of the charge of the house, for
all the service thereof, and for all that shall be done therein.

Ezekiel 44:15 But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok, that kept the
charge of my sanctuary when the children of Israel went astray from me, they
shall come near to me to minister unto me, and they shall stand before me to
offer unto me the fat and the blood, saith the Lord GOD:

Ezekiel 44:16 They shall enter into my sanctuary, and they shall come near
to my table, to minister unto me, and they shall keep my charge.

Ezekiel 44:17 And it shall come to pass, that when they enter in at the
gates of the inner court, they shall be clothed with linen garments; and no
wool shall come upon them, whiles they minister in the gates of the inner
court, and within.

Ezekiel 44:18 They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads, and shall have
linen breeches upon their loins; they shall not gird themselves with any thing
that causeth sweat.

Ezekiel 44:19 And when they go forth into the utter court, even into the
utter court to the people, they shall put off their garments wherein they
ministered, and lay them in the holy chambers, and they shall put on other
garments; and they shall not sanctify the people with their garments.

Ezekiel 44:20 Neither shall they shave their heads, nor suffer their locks
to grow long; they shall only poll their heads.

Ezekiel 44:21 Neither shall any priest drink wine, when they enter into the
inner court.

Ezekiel 44:23 And they shall teach my people the difference between the holy
and profane, and cause them to discern between the unclean and the clean.

shall judge it according to my judgments: and they shall keep my laws and my
statutes in all mine assemblies; and they shall hallow my sabbaths.

inheritance: and ye shall give them no possession in Israel: I am their
possession.

the trespass offering: and every dedicated thing in Israel shall be theirs.

Ezekiel 44:30 And the first of all the firstfruits of all things, and every
oblation of all, of every sort of your oblations, shall be the priest's: ye
shall also give unto the priest the first of your dough, that he may cause the
blessing to rest in thine house.

Ezekiel 44:31 The priests shall not eat of any thing that is dead of itself,
or torn, whether it be fowl or beast.

Ezekiel 45:1 Moreover, when ye shall divide by lot the land for inheritance,
ye shall offer an oblation unto the LORD, an holy portion of the land: the
length shall be the length of five and twenty thousand reeds, and the breadth
shall be ten thousand. This shall be holy in all the borders thereof round
about.

Ezekiel 45:2 Of this there shall be for the sanctuary five hundred in length
, with five hundred in breadth, square round about; and fifty cubits round
about for the suburbs thereof.

Ezekiel 45:3 And of this measure shalt thou measure the length of five and
twenty thousand, and the breadth of ten thousand: and in it shall be the
sanctuary and the most holy place.

Ezekiel 45:4 The holy portion of the land shall be for the priests the
ministers of the sanctuary, which shall come near to minister unto the LORD:
and it shall be a place for their houses, and an holy place for the sanctuary.

thousand of breadth, shall also the Levites, the ministers of the house, have
for themselves, for a possession for twenty chambers.

broad, and five and twenty thousand long, over against the oblation of the
holy portion: it shall be for the whole house of Israel.

the other side of the oblation of the holy portion, and of the possession of
the city, before the oblation of the holy portion, and before the possession
of the city, from the west side westward, and from the east side eastward: and
the length shall be over against one of the portions, from the west border
unto the east border.

Ezekiel 45:8 In the land shall be his possession in Israel: and my princes
shall no more oppress my people; and the rest of the land shall they give to
the house of Israel according to their tribes.

Ezekiel 45:9 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Let it suffice you, O princes of
Israel: remove violence and spoil, and execute judgment and justice, take away
your exactions from my people, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 45:10 Ye shall have just balances, and a just ephah, and a just
bath.

Ezekiel 45:11 The ephah and the bath shall be of one measure, that the bath
may contain the tenth part of an homer, and the ephah the tenth part of an
homer: the measure thereof shall be after the homer.

Ezekiel 45:12 And the shekel shall be twenty gerahs: twenty shekels, five
and twenty shekels, fifteen shekels, shall be your maneh.

Ezekiel 45:13 This is the oblation that ye shall offer; the sixth part of an
ephah of an homer of wheat, and ye shall give the sixth part of an ephah of an
homer of barley:

Ezekiel 45:14 Concerning the ordinance of oil, the bath of oil, ye shall
offer the tenth part of a bath out of the cor, which is an homer of ten baths;
for ten baths are an homer:

Ezekiel 45:15 And one lamb out of the flock, out of two hundred, out of the
fat pastures of Israel; for a meat offering, and for a burnt offering, and for
peace offerings, to make reconciliation for them, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 45:16 All the people of the land shall give this oblation for the
prince in Israel.

Ezekiel 45:17 And it shall be the prince's part to give burnt offerings, and
meat offerings, and drink offerings, in the feasts, and in the new moons, and
in the sabbaths, in all solemnities of the house of Israel: he shall prepare
the sin offering, and the meat offering, and the burnt offering, and the peace
offerings, to make reconciliation for the house of Israel.

Ezekiel 45:18 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the first month, in the first day
of the month, thou shalt take a young bullock without blemish, and cleanse the
sanctuary:

Ezekiel 45:19 And the priest shall take of the blood of the sin offering,
and put it upon the posts of the house, and upon the four corners of the
settle of the altar, and upon the posts of the gate of the inner court.

Ezekiel 45:20 And so thou shalt do the seventh day of the month for every
one that erreth, and for him that is simple: so shall ye reconcile the house.

Ezekiel 45:21 In the first month, in the fourteenth day of the month, ye
shall have the passover, a feast of seven days; unleavened bread shall be
eaten.

Ezekiel 45:22 And upon that day shall the prince prepare for himself and for
all the people of the land a bullock for a sin offering.

Ezekiel 45:23 And seven days of the feast he shall prepare a burnt offering
to the LORD, seven bullocks and seven rams without blemish daily the seven
days; and a kid of the goats daily for a sin offering.

Ezekiel 45:24 And he shall prepare a meat offering of an ephah for a
bullock, and an ephah for a ram, and an hin of oil for an ephah.

Ezekiel 45:25 In the seventh month, in the fifteenth day of the month, shall
he do the like in the feast of the seven days, according to the sin offering,
according to the burnt offering, and according to the meat offering, and
according to the oil.

Ezekiel 46:1 Thus saith the Lord GOD; The gate of the inner court that
looketh toward the east shall be shut the six working days; but on the sabbath
it shall be opened, and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

Ezekiel 46:2 And the prince shall enter by the way of the porch of that gate
without, and shall stand by the post of the gate, and the priests shall
prepare his burnt offering and his peace offerings, and he shall worship at
the threshold of the gate: then he shall go forth; but the gate shall not be
shut until the evening.

Ezekiel 46:3 Likewise the people of the land shall worship at the door of
this gate before the LORD in the sabbaths and in the new moons.

Ezekiel 46:4 And the burnt offering that the prince shall offer unto the
LORD in the sabbath day shall be six lambs without blemish, and a ram without
blemish.

Ezekiel 46:5 And the meat offering shall be an ephah for a ram, and the meat
offering for the lambs as he shall be able to give, and an hin of oil to an
ephah.

Ezekiel 46:6 And in the day of the new moon it shall be a young bullock
without blemish, and six lambs, and a ram: they shall be without blemish.

Ezekiel 46:7 And he shall prepare a meat offering, an ephah for a bullock,
and an ephah for a ram, and for the lambs according as his hand shall attain
unto, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

Ezekiel 46:8 And when the prince shall enter, he shall go in by the way of
the porch of that gate, and he shall go forth by the way thereof.

Ezekiel 46:9 But when the people of the land shall come before the LORD in
the solemn feasts, he that entereth in by the way of the north gate to worship
shall go out by the way of the south gate; and he that entereth by the way of
the south gate shall go forth by the way of the north gate: he shall not
return by the way of the gate whereby he came in, but shall go forth over
against it.

Ezekiel 46:10 And the prince in the midst of them, when they go in, shall go
in; and when they go forth, shall go forth.

Ezekiel 46:11 And in the feasts and in the solemnities the meat offering
shall be an ephah to a bullock, and an ephah to a ram, and to the lambs as he
is able to give, and an hin of oil to an ephah.

Ezekiel 46:12 Now when the prince shall prepare a voluntary burnt offering
or peace offerings voluntarily unto the LORD, one shall then open him the gate
that looketh toward the east, and he shall prepare his burnt offering and his
peace offerings, as he did on the sabbath day: then he shall go forth; and
after his going forth one shall shut the gate.

Ezekiel 46:13 Thou shalt daily prepare a burnt offering unto the LORD of a
lamb of the first year without blemish: thou shalt prepare it every morning.

Ezekiel 46:14 And thou shalt prepare a meat offering for it every morning,
the sixth part of an ephah, and the third part of an hin of oil, to temper
with the fine flour; a meat offering continually by a perpetual ordinance unto
the LORD.

Ezekiel 46:15 Thus shall they prepare the lamb, and the meat offering, and
the oil, every morning for a continual burnt offering.

Ezekiel 46:16 Thus saith the Lord GOD; If the prince give a gift unto any of
his sons, the inheritance thereof shall be his sons'; it shall be their
possession by inheritance.

Ezekiel 46:17 But if he give a gift of his inheritance to one of his
servants, then it shall be his to the year of liberty; after it shall return
to the prince: but his inheritance shall be his sons' for them.

Ezekiel 46:18 Moreover the prince shall not take of the people's inheritance
by oppression, to thrust them out of their possession; but he shall give his
sons inheritance out of his own possession: that my people be not scattered
every man from his possession.

Ezekiel 46:19 After he brought me through the entry, which was at the side
of the gate, into the holy chambers of the priests, which looked toward the
north: and, behold, there was a place on the two sides westward.

Ezekiel 46:20 Then said he unto me, This is the place where the priests
shall boil the trespass offering and the sin offering, where they shall bake
the meat offering; that they bear them not out into the utter court, to
sanctify the people.

Ezekiel 46:21 Then he brought me forth into the utter court, and caused me
to pass by the four corners of the court; and, behold, in every corner of the
court there was a court.

Ezekiel 46:22 In the four corners of the court there were courts joined of
forty cubits long and thirty broad: these four corners were of one measure.

Ezekiel 46:23 And there was a row of building round about in them, round
about them four, and it was made with boiling places under the rows round
about.

Ezekiel 46:24 Then said he unto me, These are the places of them that boil,
where the ministers of the house shall boil the sacrifice of the people.

Ezekiel 47:1 Afterward he brought me again unto the door of the house; and,
behold, waters issued out from under the threshold of the house eastward: for
the forefront of the house stood toward the east, and the waters came down
from under from the right side of the house, at the south side of the altar.

Ezekiel 47:2 Then brought he me out of the way of the gate northward, and
led me about the way without unto the utter gate by the way that looketh
eastward; and, behold, there ran out waters on the right side.

Ezekiel 47:3 And when the man that had the line in his hand went forth
eastward, he measured a thousand cubits, and he brought me through the waters;
the waters were to the ankles.

Ezekiel 47:4 Again he measured a thousand, and brought me through the
waters; the waters were to the knees. Again he measured a thousand, and
brought me through; the waters were to the loins.

Ezekiel 47:5 Afterward he measured a thousand; and it was a river that I
could not pass over: for the waters were risen, waters to swim in, a river
that could not be passed over.

Ezekiel 47:6 And he said unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen this? Then he
brought me, and caused me to return to the brink of the river.

Ezekiel 47:7 Now when I had returned, behold, at the bank of the river were
very many trees on the one side and on the other.

Ezekiel 47:8 Then said he unto me, These waters issue out toward the east
country, and go down into the desert, and go into the sea: which being brought
forth into the sea, the waters shall be healed.

Ezekiel 47:9 And it shall come to pass, that every thing that liveth, which
moveth, whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live: and there shall be a
very great multitude of fish, because these waters shall come thither: for
they shall be healed; and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.

Ezekiel 47:10 And it shall come to pass, that the fishers shall stand upon
it from Engedi even unto Eneglaim; they shall be a place to spread forth nets;
their fish shall be according to their kinds, as the fish of the great sea,
exceeding many.

Ezekiel 47:11 But the miry places thereof and the marishes thereof shall not
be healed; they shall be given to salt.

Ezekiel 47:12 And by the river upon the bank thereof, on this side and on
that side, shall grow all trees for meat, whose leaf shall not fade, neither
shall the fruit thereof be consumed: it shall bring forth new fruit according
to his months, because their waters they issued out of the sanctuary: and the
fruit thereof shall be for meat, and the leaf thereof for medicine.

Ezekiel 47:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This shall be the border, whereby ye
shall inherit the land according to the twelve tribes of Israel: Joseph shall
have two portions.

Ezekiel 47:14 And ye shall inherit it, one as well as another: concerning
the which I lifted up mine hand to give it unto your fathers: and this land
shall fall unto you for inheritance.

Ezekiel 47:15 And this shall be the border of the land toward the north
side, from the great sea, the way of Hethlon, as men go to Zedad;

Ezekiel 47:16 Hamath, Berothah, Sibraim, which is between the border of
Damascus and the border of Hamath; Hazarhatticon, which is by the coast of
Hauran.

Ezekiel 47:17 And the border from the sea shall be Hazarenan, the border of
Damascus, and the north northward, and the border of Hamath. And this is the
north side.

Ezekiel 47:18 And the east side ye shall measure from Hauran, and from
Damascus, and from Gilead, and from the land of Israel by Jordan, from the
border unto the east sea. And this is the east side.

Ezekiel 47:19 And the south side southward, from Tamar even to the waters of
strife in Kadesh, the river to the great sea. And this is the south side
southward.

Ezekiel 47:20 The west side also shall be the great sea from the border,
till a man come over against Hamath. This is the west side.

Ezekiel 47:21 So shall ye divide this land unto you according to the tribes
of Israel.

Ezekiel 47:22 And it shall come to pass, that ye shall divide it by lot for
an inheritance unto you, and to the strangers that sojourn among you, which
shall beget children among you: and they shall be unto you as born in the
country among the children of Israel; they shall have inheritance with you
among the tribes of Israel.

Ezekiel 47:23 And it shall come to pass, that in what tribe the stranger
sojourneth, there shall ye give him his inheritance, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 48:1 Now these are the names of the tribes. From the north end to
the coast of the way of Hethlon, as one goeth to Hamath, Hazarenan, the border
of Damascus northward, to the coast of Hamath; for these are his sides east and
west; a portion for Dan.

Ezekiel 48:2 And by the border of Dan, from the east side unto the west
side, a portion for Asher.

Ezekiel 48:3 And by the border of Asher, from the east side even unto the
west side, a portion for Naphtali.

side, a portion for Judah.

side, shall be the offering which ye shall offer of five and twenty thousand
reeds in breadth, and in length as one of the other parts, from the east side
unto the west side: and the sanctuary shall be in the midst of it.

Ezekiel 48:9 The oblation that ye shall offer unto the LORD shall be of five
and twenty thousand in length, and of ten thousand in breadth.

Ezekiel 48:10 And for them, even for the priests, shall be this holy
oblation; toward the north five and twenty thousand in length, and toward the
west ten thousand in breadth, and toward the east ten thousand in breadth, and
toward the south five and twenty thousand in length: and the sanctuary of the
LORD shall be in the midst thereof.

Ezekiel 48:11 It shall be for the priests that are sanctified of the sons of
Zadok; which have kept my charge, which went not astray when the children of
Israel went astray, as the Levites went astray.

Ezekiel 48:12 And this oblation of the land that is offered shall be unto
them a thing most holy by the border of the Levites.

Ezekiel 48:13 And over against the border of the priests the Levites shall
have five and twenty thousand in length, and ten thousand in breadth: all the
length shall be five and twenty thousand, and the breadth ten thousand.

Ezekiel 48:14 And they shall not sell of it, neither exchange, nor alienate
the firstfruits of the land: for it is holy unto the LORD.

Ezekiel 48:15 And the five thousand, that are left in the breadth over
against the five and twenty thousand, shall be a profane place for the city,
for dwelling, and for suburbs: and the city shall be in the midst thereof.

Ezekiel 48:16 And these shall be the measures thereof; the north side four
thousand and five hundred, and the south side four thousand and five hundred,
and on the east side four thousand and five hundred, and the west side four
thousand and five hundred.

Ezekiel 48:17 And the suburbs of the city shall be toward the north two
hundred and fifty, and toward the south two hundred and fifty, and toward the
east two hundred and fifty, and toward the west two hundred and fifty.

Ezekiel 48:18 And the residue in length over against the oblation of the
holy portion shall be ten thousand eastward, and ten thousand westward: and it
shall be over against the oblation of the holy portion; and the increase
thereof shall be for food unto them that serve the city.

Ezekiel 48:19 And they that serve the city shall serve it out of all the
tribes of Israel.

Ezekiel 48:20 All the oblation shall be five and twenty thousand by five and
twenty thousand: ye shall offer the holy oblation foursquare, with the
possession of the city.

Ezekiel 48:21 And the residue shall be for the prince, on the one side and
on the other of the holy oblation, and of the possession of the city, over
against the five and twenty thousand of the oblation toward the east border,
and westward over against the five and twenty thousand toward the west border,
over against the portions for the prince: and it shall be the holy oblation;
and the sanctuary of the house shall be in the midst thereof.

Ezekiel 48:22 Moreover from the possession of the Levites, and from the
possession of the city, being in the midst of that which is the prince's,
between the border of Judah and the border of Benjamin, shall be for the
prince.

Ezekiel 48:23 As for the rest of the tribes, from the east side unto the
west side, Benjamin shall have a portion.

Ezekiel 48:24 And by the border of Benjamin, from the east side unto the
west side, Simeon shall have a portion.

Ezekiel 48:27 And by the border of Zebulun, from the east side unto the west
side, Gad a portion.

Ezekiel 48:28 And by the border of Gad, at the south side southward, the
border shall be even from Tamar unto the waters of strife in Kadesh, and to
the river toward the great sea.

Ezekiel 48:29 This is the land which ye shall divide by lot unto the tribes
of Israel for inheritance, and these are their portions, saith the Lord GOD.

Ezekiel 48:30 And these are the goings out of the city on the north side,
four thousand and five hundred measures.

Ezekiel 48:31 And the gates of the city shall be after the names of the
tribes of Israel: three gates northward; one gate of Reuben, one gate of
Judah, one gate of Levi.

Ezekiel 48:32 And at the east side four thousand and five hundred: and three
gates; and one gate of Joseph, one gate of Benjamin, one gate of Dan.

Ezekiel 48:33 And at the south side four thousand and five hundred measures:
and three gates; one gate of Simeon, one gate of Issachar, one gate of
Zebulun.

Ezekiel 48:34 At the west side four thousand and five hundred, with their
three gates; one gate of Gad, one gate of Asher, one gate of Naphtali.

the city from that day shall be, The LORD is there.
