Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:1 - The word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:2 - “Son of man, will you judge her? Will you judge this city of bloodshed? Then confront her with all her detestable practices

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:3 - and say: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: You city that brings on herself doom by shedding blood in her midst and defiles herself by making idols,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:4 - you have become guilty because of the blood you have shed and have become defiled by the idols you have made. You have brought your days to a close, and the end of your years has come. Therefore I will make you an object of scorn to the nations and a laughingstock to all the countries.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:5 - Those who are near and those who are far away will mock you, you infamous city, full of turmoil.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:6 - “ ‘See how each of the princes of Israel who are in you uses his power to shed blood.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:7 - In you they have treated father and mother with contempt; in you they have oppressed the foreigner and mistreated the fatherless and the widow.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:8 - You have despised my holy things and desecrated my Sabbaths.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:9 - In you are slanderers who are bent on shedding blood; in you are those who eat at the mountain shrines and commit lewd acts.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:10 - In you are those who dishonor their father’s bed; in you are those who violate women during their period, when they are ceremonially unclean.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:11 - In you one man commits a detestable offense with his neighbor’s wife, another shamefully defiles his daughter-in-law, and another violates his sister, his own father’s daughter.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:12 - In you are people who accept bribes to shed blood; you take interest and make a profit from the poor. You extort unjust gain from your neighbors. And you have forgotten me, declares the Sovereign LORD.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:13 - “ ‘I will surely strike my hands together at the unjust gain you have made and at the blood you have shed in your midst.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:14 - Will your courage endure or your hands be strong in the day I deal with you? I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:15 - I will disperse you among the nations and scatter you through the countries; and I will put an end to your uncleanness.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:16 - When you have been defiled[fn] in the eyes of the nations, you will know that I am the LORD.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:17 - Then the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:18 - “Son of man, the people of Israel have become dross to me; all of them are the copper, tin, iron and lead left inside a furnace. They are but the dross of silver.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:19 - Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: ‘Because you have all become dross, I will gather you into Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:20 - As silver, copper, iron, lead and tin are gathered into a furnace to be melted with a fiery blast, so will I gather you in my anger and my wrath and put you inside the city and melt you.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:21 - I will gather you and I will blow on you with my fiery wrath, and you will be melted inside her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:22 - As silver is melted in a furnace, so you will be melted inside her, and you will know that I the LORD have poured out my wrath on you.’ ”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:23 - Again the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:24 - “Son of man, say to the land, ‘You are a land that has not been cleansed or rained on in the day of wrath.’

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:25 - There is a conspiracy of her princes[fn] within her like a roaring lion tearing its prey; they devour people, take treasures and precious things and make many widows within her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:26 - Her priests do violence to my law and profane my holy things; they do not distinguish between the holy and the common; they teach that there is no difference between the unclean and the clean; and they shut their eyes to the keeping of my Sabbaths, so that I am profaned among them.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:27 - Her officials within her are like wolves tearing their prey; they shed blood and kill people to make unjust gain.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:28 - Her prophets whitewash these deeds for them by false visions and lying divinations. They say, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says’—when the LORD has not spoken.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:29 - The people of the land practice extortion and commit robbery; they oppress the poor and needy and mistreat the foreigner, denying them justice.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:30 - “I looked for someone among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap on behalf of the land so I would not have to destroy it, but I found no one.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 22:31 - So I will pour out my wrath on them and consume them with my fiery anger, bringing down on their own heads all they have done, declares the Sovereign LORD.”
