VIN(i) 1 The word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2 Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them; 3 and say, You mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign LORD: Thus says the Sovereign LORD to the mountains and to the hills, to the rivers and to the valleys: Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword on you, and I will destroy your high places. 4 '"Your altars will be destroyed! Your incense burners will be smashed. I will kill your people in front of your idols. 5 I will lay the dead bodies of the children of Israel before their idols; and I will scatter your bones around your altars. 6 In all your dwelling places, the cities will be laid waste and the high places will be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your incense altars may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. 7 The slain will fall among you, and you will know that I am the LORD. 8 But I will spare some, so there will be for you fugitives from the sword among the nations when you are scattered in the countries. 9 "Then those who escape will remember me among the nations where they are taken captive. I was hurt by their adulterous hearts, which turned away from me, and by their eyes, which lusted after idols. They will hate themselves for the evil and disgusting things that they have done. 10 And they will know that I am the LORD. I have not said in vain that I would do this evil to them. 11 Thus says the Sovereign LORD: Strike with your hand and stamp with your foot and say, Alas! Because of all the evil abominations of the house of Israel, they shall fall by the sword, by the famine and by the plague. 12 He that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine; thus will I spend My fury upon them. 13 You will know that I am the LORD, when their slain men are among their idols around their altars, on every high hill, on all the tops of the mountains, under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the places where they offered pleasant aroma to all their idols. 14 And I will stretch out my hand against them, and I will make the land a desolation and a wasteland from the desert to Riblah in all of their dwellings, and they will know that I am the LORD."
