The Coming of the End
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:1 - Then this message came to me from the LORD:
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:2 - “Son of man, this is what the Sovereign LORD says to Israel:
“The end is here!
Wherever you look—
east, west, north, or south—
your land is finished.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:3 - No hope remains,
for I will unleash my anger against you.
I will call you to account
for all your detestable sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:4 - I will turn my eyes away and show no pity.
I will repay you for all your detestable sins.
Then you will know that I am the LORD.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:5 - “This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
Disaster after disaster
is coming your way!
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:6 - The end has come.
It has finally arrived.
Your final doom is waiting!
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:7 - O people of Israel, the day of your destruction is dawning.
The time has come; the day of trouble is near.
Shouts of anguish will be heard on the mountains,
not shouts of joy.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:8 - Soon I will pour out my fury on you
and unleash my anger against you.
I will call you to account
for all your detestable sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:9 - I will turn my eyes away and show no pity.
I will repay you for all your detestable sins.
Then you will know that it is I, the LORD,
who is striking the blow.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:10 - “The day of judgment is here;
your destruction awaits!
The people’s wickedness and pride
have blossomed to full flower.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:11 - Their violence has grown into a rod
that will beat them for their wickedness.
None of these proud and wicked people will survive.
All their wealth and prestige will be swept away.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:12 - Yes, the time has come;
the day is here!
Buyers should not rejoice over bargains,
nor sellers grieve over losses,
for all of them will fall
under my terrible anger.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:13 - Even if the merchants survive,
they will never return to their business.
For what God has said applies to everyone—
it will not be changed!
Not one person whose life is twisted by sin
will ever recover.
The Desolation of Israel
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:14 - “The trumpet calls Israel’s army to mobilize,
but no one listens,
for my fury is against them all.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:15 - There is war outside the city
and disease and famine within.
Those outside the city walls
will be killed by enemy swords.
Those inside the city
will die of famine and disease.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:16 - The survivors who escape to the mountains
will moan like doves, weeping for their sins.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:17 - Their hands will hang limp,
their knees will be weak as water.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:18 - They will dress themselves in burlap;
horror and shame will cover them.
They will shave their heads
in sorrow and remorse.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:19 - “They will throw their money in the streets,
tossing it out like worthless trash.
Their silver and gold won’t save them
on that day of the LORD’s anger.
It will neither satisfy nor feed them,
for their greed can only trip them up.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:20 - They were proud of their beautiful jewelry
and used it to make detestable idols and vile images.
Therefore, I will make all their wealth
disgusting to them.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:21 - I will give it as plunder to foreigners,
to the most wicked of nations,
and they will defile it.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:22 - I will turn my eyes from them
as these robbers invade and defile my treasured land.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:23 - “Prepare chains for my people,
for the land is bloodied by terrible crimes.
Jerusalem is filled with violence.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:24 - I will bring the most ruthless of nations
to occupy their homes.
I will break down their proud fortresses
and defile their sanctuaries.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:25 - Terror and trembling will overcome my people.
They will look for peace but not find it.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:26 - Calamity will follow calamity;
rumor will follow rumor.
They will look in vain
for a vision from the prophets.
They will receive no teaching from the priests
and no counsel from the leaders.
Unchecked Copy BoxEze 7:27 - The king and the prince will stand helpless,
weeping in despair,
and the people’s hands
will tremble with fear.
I will bring on them
the evil they have done to others,
and they will receive the punishment
they so richly deserve.
Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
