Ezekiel 5

ECB(i) 1
And you, son of humanity, take a sharp sword, take a razor of a barber, and pass it over your head and over your beard: and take balances of weights and allot them. 2 A third, burn with flame midst the city when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and take a third, and smite all around with a sword: and a third, scatter in the wind; and I draw a sword after them: 3 and take a few in number and bind them in your wings: 4 and take of them again, and cast them midst the fire and burn them in the fire; and a fire comes forth into all the house of Yisra El. 5 Thus says Adonay Yah Veh: This is Yeru Shalem: I set it midst the goyim and lands all around her: 6 and she rebels against my judgments in wickedness more than the goyim, and my statutes more than the lands around her: for they refuse my judgments and my statutes and walk not in them. 7 So thus says Adonay Yah Veh: Because you multiply more than the goyim around you, and neither walk in my statutes nor work my judgments, nor work according to the judgments of the goyim around you; 8 so thus says Adonay Yah Veh: Behold, I - even I am against you, and work judgments midst you in the eyes of the goyim: 9 and I work in you what I neither worked nor work any more the like because of all your abhorrences. 10 So the fathers eat the sons midst you; and the sons eat their fathers: and I work judgments in you, and I winnow all your survivors into all the winds. 11 So - I live - an oracle of Adonay Yah Veh because you foul my holies with all your abominations and with all your abhorrences, I also diminish you; neither my eye spares nor I compassion. 12 A third of you die with the pestilence - finished off with famine in your midst; and a third fall by the sword all around you; and a third I winnow into all the winds: and I draw out a sword after them. 13 Thus I finish off my wrath and I rest my fury on them, and sigh: and they know that I Yah Veh word in my zeal when I finish off my fury in them. 14 I give you for a parched area; and for a reproach among the goyim around you in the eyes of all who pass by: 15 and so be it, a reproach and a revilement, a discipline and a desolation to the goyim around you, when I work judgments in you in wrath and in fury and in reproofs of fury. I Yah Veh have worded. 16 I send on them the evil arrows of famine being for their ruin - which I send to ruin you: and I increase the famine on you and break your rod of bread: 17 thus I send famine on you; and evil live beings bereave you; and pestilence and blood passes through you; and I bring the sword on you. I Yah Veh have worded.
