2 H1121 Son H120 of man H7760 , set [H8798] H6440 thy face H3389 toward Jerusalem H5197 , and drop [H8685] H4720 thy word toward the holy places H5012 , and prophesy [H8734] H127 against the land H3478 of Israel,
3 H559 And say [H8804] H127 to the land H3478 of Israel H559 , Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H3318 ; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth [H8689] H2719 my sword H8593 out of his sheath H3772 , and will cut off [H8689] H6662 from thee the righteous H7563 and the wicked.
4 H3282 Seeing H3772 then that I will cut off [H8689] H6662 from thee the righteous H7563 and the wicked H2719 , therefore shall my sword H3318 go forth [H8799] H8593 out of his sheath H1320 against all flesh H5045 from the south H6828 to the north:
5 H1320 That all flesh H3045 may know [H8804] H3068 that I the LORD H3318 have drawn forth [H8689] H2719 my sword H8593 out of his sheath H7725 : it shall not return [H8799] any more.
6 H584 Sigh [H8734] H1121 therefore, thou son H120 of man H7670 , with the breaking H4975 of thy loins H4814 ; and with bitterness H584 sigh [H8735] H5869 before their eyes.
7 H559 And it shall be, when they say [H8799] H584 unto thee, Wherefore sighest [H8737] H559 thou? that thou shalt answer [H8804] H8052 , For the tidings H935 ; because it cometh [H8802] H3820 : and every heart H4549 shall melt [H8738] H3027 , and all hands H7503 shall be feeble [H8804] H7307 , and every spirit H3543 shall faint [H8765] H1290 , and all knees H3212 shall be weak [H8799] H4325 as water H935 : behold, it cometh [H8802] H1961 , and shall be brought to pass [H8738] H5002 , saith [H8803] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
9 H1121 Son H120 of man H5012 , prophesy [H8734] H559 , and say [H8804] H559 , Thus saith [H8804] H3068 the LORD H559 ; Say [H8798] H2719 , A sword H2719 , a sword H2300 is sharpened [H8717] H4803 , and also furbished [H8803] :
10 H2300 It is sharpened [H8717] H2874 to make a sore H2873 slaughter [H8800] H4178 ; it is furbished [H8794] H1300 that it may glitter H176 : should H7797 we then make mirth [H8799] H3988 ? it contemneth [H8802] H7626 the rod H1121 of my son H6086 , as every tree.
11 H5414 And he hath given [H8799] H4803 it to be furbished [H8800] H3709 , that it may be handled H8610 [H8800] H2719 : this sword H2300 is sharpened [H8717] H4178 , and it is furbished [H8794] H5414 , to give [H8800] H3027 it into the hand H2026 of the slayer [H8802] .
12 H2199 Cry [H8798] H3213 and howl [H8685] H1121 , son H120 of man H5971 : for it shall be upon my people H5387 , it shall be upon all the princes H3478 of Israel H4048 : terrors [H8803] H413 by reason of H2719 the sword H5971 shall be upon my people H5606 : smite [H8798] H3409 therefore upon thy thigh.
13 H974 Because it is a trial [H8795] H3988 , and what if the sword contemn [H8802] H7626 even the rod H5002 ? it shall be no more, saith [H8803] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
14 H1121 Thou therefore, son H120 of man H5012 , prophesy [H8734] H5221 , and smite H3709 thine hands H3709 H5221 together [H8685] H2719 , and let the sword H3717 be doubled [H8735] H7992 the third H2719 time, the sword H2491 of the slain H2719 : it is the sword H1419 of the great H2491 men that are slain H2314 , which entereth into their privy chambers [H8802] .
15 H5414 I have set [H8804] H19 the point H2719 of the sword H8179 against all their gates H3820 , that their heart H4127 may faint [H8800] H4383 , and their ruins H7235 be multiplied [H8687] H253 : ah H6213 ! it is made [H8803] H1300 bright H4593 , it is wrapped up H2874 for the slaughter.
16 H258 Go thee one way or other [H8690] H7760 , either on [H8685] H3231 the right hand [H8685] H8041 , or on the left [H8685] H575 , whithersoever H6440 thy face H3259 is set [H8716] .
17 H5221 I will also smite [H8686] H3709 mine hands H3709 together H2534 , and I will cause my fury H5117 to rest [H8689] H3068 : I the LORD H1696 have said [H8765] it .
19 H1121 Also, thou son H120 of man H7760 , appoint [H8798] H8147 thee two H1870 ways H2719 , that the sword H4428 of the king H894 of Babylon H935 may come [H8800] H8147 : both twain H3318 shall come forth [H8799] H259 out of one H776 land H1254 : and choose [H8761] H3027 thou a place H1254 , choose [H8761] H7218 it at the head H1870 of the way H5892 to the city.
20 H7760 Appoint [H8799] H1870 a way H2719 , that the sword H935 may come [H8800] H7237 to Rabbath H1121 of the Ammonites H5983 H3063 , and to Judah H3389 in Jerusalem H1219 the defenced [H8803] .
21 H4428 For the king H894 of Babylon H5975 stood [H8804] H517 at the parting H1870 of the way H7218 , at the head H8147 of the two H1870 ways H7080 , to use [H8800] H7081 divination H2671 : he made his arrows H7043 bright [H8773] H7592 , he consulted [H8804] H8655 with images H7200 , he looked [H8804] H3516 in the liver.
22 H3225 At his right hand H7081 was the divination H3389 for Jerusalem H7760 , to appoint [H8800] H3733 captains H6605 , to open [H8800] H6310 the mouth H7524 in the slaughter H7311 , to lift up [H8687] H6963 the voice H8643 with shouting H7760 , to appoint [H8800] H3733 battering rams H8179 against the gates H8210 , to cast [H8800] H5550 a mount H1129 , and to build [H8800] H1785 a fort.
23 H7723 And it shall be unto them as a false H7080 divination [H8800] H5869 in their sight H7650 , to them that have sworn [H8803] H7621 oaths H2142 : but he will call to remembrance [H8688] H5771 the iniquity H8610 , that they may be taken [H8736] .
24 H559 Therefore thus saith [H8804] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5771 ; Because ye have made your iniquity H2142 to be remembered [H8687] H6588 , in that your transgressions H1540 are discovered [H8736] H5949 , so that in all your doings H2403 your sins H7200 do appear [H8736] H2142 ; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance [H8736] H8610 , ye shall be taken [H8735] H3709 with the hand.
25 H2491 And thou, profane H7563 wicked H5387 prince H3478 of Israel H3117 , whose day H935 is come [H8804] H6256 , when H5771 iniquity H7093 shall have an end,
26 H559 Thus saith [H8804] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5493 ; Remove [H8685] H4701 the diadem H7311 , and take off [H8685] H5850 the crown H2063 : this shall not be the same H1361 : exalt [H8687] H8217 him that is low H8213 , and abase [H8687] H1364 him that is high.
27 H5754 I will overturn H5754 , overturn H5754 , overturn H7760 , it: and it shall be [H8799] H935 no more, until he come [H8800] H4941 whose right H5414 it is; and I will give [H8804] it him .
28 H1121 And thou, son H120 of man H5012 , prophesy [H8734] H559 and say [H8804] H559 , Thus saith [H8804] H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H1121 concerning the Ammonites H5983 H2781 , and concerning their reproach H559 ; even say [H8804] H2719 thou, The sword H2719 , the sword H6605 is drawn [H8803] H2874 : for the slaughter H4803 it is furbished [H8803] H398 , to consume [H8687] H1300 because of the glittering:
29 H2372 Whiles they see [H8800] H7723 vanity H7080 unto thee, whiles they divine [H8800] H3577 a lie H5414 unto thee, to bring [H8800] H6677 thee upon the necks H2491 of them that are slain H7563 , of the wicked H3117 , whose day H935 is come [H8804] H6256 , when H5771 their iniquity H7093 shall have an end.
30 H7725 Shall I cause it to return [H8685] H8593 into his sheath H8199 ? I will judge [H8799] H4725 thee in the place H1254 where thou wast created [H8738] H776 , in the land H4351 of thy nativity.
31 H8210 And I will pour out [H8804] H2195 mine indignation H6315 upon thee, I will blow [H8686] H784 against thee in the fire H5678 of my wrath H5414 , and deliver [H8804] H3027 thee into the hand H1197 of brutish [H8802] H582 men H2796 , and skilful H4889 to destroy.
