Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:1 - And the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:2 - “Son of man, set your face toward Jerusalem, preach against the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel;

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:3 - “and say to the land of Israel, ‘Thus says the LORD: “Behold, I am against you, and I will draw My sword out of its sheath and cut off both righteous and wicked from you.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:4 - “Because I will cut off both righteous and wicked from you, therefore My sword shall go out of its sheath against all flesh from south to north,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:5 - “that all flesh may know that I, the LORD, have drawn My sword out of its sheath; it shall not return anymore.” ’

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:6 - “Sigh therefore, son of man, with a breaking heart, and sigh with bitterness before their eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:7 - “And it shall be when they say to you, ‘Why are you sighing?’ that you shall answer, ‘Because of the news; when it comes, every heart will melt, all hands will be feeble, every spirit will faint, and all knees will be weak as water. Behold, it is coming and shall be brought to pass,’ says the Lord GOD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:8 - Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:9 - “Son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the LORD!’ Say:

‘A sword, a sword is sharpened
And also polished!

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:10 - Sharpened to make a dreadful slaughter,
Polished to flash like lightning!
Should we then make mirth?
It despises the scepter of My son,
As it does all wood.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:11 - And He has given it to be polished,
That it may be handled;
This sword is sharpened, and it is polished
To be given into the hand of the slayer.’

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:12 - “Cry and wail, son of man;
For it will be against My people,
Against all the princes of Israel.
Terrors including the sword will be against My people;
Therefore strike your thigh.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:13 - “Because it is a testing,
And what if the sword despises even the scepter?
The scepter shall be no more,
says the Lord GOD.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:14 - “You therefore, son of man, prophesy,
And strike your hands together.
The third time let the sword do double damage.
It is the sword that slays,
The sword that slays the great men,
That enters their private chambers.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:15 - I have set the point of the sword against all their gates,
That the heart may melt and many may stumble.
Ah! It is made bright;
It is grasped for slaughter:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:16 - “Swords at the ready!
Thrust right!
Set your blade!
Thrust left—
Wherever your edge is ordered!

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:17 - “I also will beat My fists together,
And I will cause My fury to rest;
I, the LORD, have spoken.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:18 - The word of the LORD came to me again, saying:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:19 - “And son of man, appoint for yourself two ways for the sword of the king of Babylon to go; both of them shall go from the same land. Make a sign; put it at the head of the road to the city.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:20 - “Appoint a road for the sword to go to Rabbah of the Ammonites, and to Judah, into fortified Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:21 - “For the king of Babylon stands at the parting of the road, at the fork of the two roads, to use divination: he shakes the arrows, he consults the images, he looks at the liver.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:22 - “In his right hand is the divination for Jerusalem: to set up battering rams, to call for a slaughter, to lift the voice with shouting, to set battering rams against the gates, to heap up a siege mound, and to build a wall.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:23 - “And it will be to them like a false divination in the eyes of those who have sworn oaths with them; but he will bring their iniquity to remembrance, that they may be taken.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:24 - “Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: ‘Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are uncovered, so that in all your doings your sins appear—because you have come to remembrance, you shall be taken in hand.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:25 - ‘Now to you, O profane, wicked prince of Israel, whose day has come, whose iniquity shall end,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:26 - ‘thus says the Lord GOD:

“Remove the turban, and take off the crown;
Nothing shall remain the same.
Exalt the humble, and humble the exalted.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:27 - Overthrown, overthrown,
I will make it overthrown!
It shall be no longer,
Until He comes whose right it is,
And I will give it to Him.” ’

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:28 - “And you, son of man, prophesy and say, ‘Thus says the Lord GOD concerning the Ammonites and concerning their reproach,’ and say:

‘A sword, a sword is drawn,
Polished for slaughter,
For consuming, for flashing—

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:29 - While they see false visions for you,
While they divine a lie to you,
To bring you on the necks of the wicked, the slain
Whose day has come,
Whose iniquity shall end.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:30 - ‘Return it to its sheath.
I will judge you
In the place where you were created,
In the land of your nativity.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:31 - I will pour out My indignation on you;
I will blow against you with the fire of My wrath,
And deliver you into the hands of brutal men who are skillful to destroy.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 21:32 - You shall be fuel for the fire;
Your blood shall be in the midst of the land.
You shall not be remembered,
For I the LORD have spoken.’ ”
