2 H1121 Son H120 of man H7760 [H8798] , set H6440 thy face H3389 toward Jerusalem H5197 [H8685] , and drop H4720 thy word toward the holy places H5012 [H8734] , and prophesy H127 against the land H3478 of Israel,
3 H559 [H8804] And say H127 to the land H3478 of Israel H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H3318 [H8689] ; Behold, I am against thee, and will draw forth H2719 my sword H8593 out of its sheath H3772 [H8689] , and will cut off H6662 from thee the righteous H7563 and the wicked.
4 H3282 Seeing H3772 [H8689] then that I will cut off H6662 from thee the righteous H7563 and the wicked H2719 , therefore shall my sword H3318 [H8799] go forth H8593 from its sheath H1320 against all flesh H5045 from the south H6828 to the north:
5 H1320 That all flesh H3045 [H8804] may know H3068 that I the LORD H3318 [H8689] have drawn H2719 my sword H8593 out of its sheath H7725 [H8799] : it shall not return any more.
6 H584 [H8734] Sigh H1121 therefore, thou son H120 of man H7670 , with breaking H4975 heart H4814 ; and with bitterness H584 [H8735] sigh H5869 before their eyes.
7 H559 [H8799] And it shall be, when they say H584 [H8737] to thee, Why sighest H559 [H8804] thou? that thou shalt answer H8052 , For the tidings H935 [H8802] ; because it cometh H3820 : and every heart H4549 [H8738] shall melt H3027 , and all hands H7503 [H8804] shall be feeble H7307 , and every spirit H3543 [H8765] shall faint H1290 , and all knees H3212 [H8799] shall be weak H4325 as water H935 [H8802] : behold, it cometh H1961 [H8738] , and shall be brought to pass H5002 [H8803] , saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
9 H1121 Son H120 of man H5012 [H8734] , prophesy H559 [H8804] , and say H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H3068 the LORD H559 [H8798] ; Say H2719 , A sword H2719 , a sword H2300 [H8717] is sharpened H4803 [H8803] , and also polished:
10 H2300 [H8717] It is sharpened H2874 to make a grievous H2873 [H8800] slaughter H4178 [H8794] ; it is polished H1300 that it may glitter H176 : should H7797 [H8799] we then make mirth H3988 [H8802] ? it despiseth H7626 the rod H1121 of my son H6086 , as every tree.
11 H5414 [H8799] And he hath given H4803 [H8800] it to be polished H3709 H8610 [H8800] , that it may be handled H2719 : the sword H2300 [H8717] is sharpened H4178 [H8794] , and it is polished H5414 [H8800] , to give H3027 it into the hand H2026 [H8802] of the slayer.
12 H2199 [H8798] Cry H3213 [H8685] and wail 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 [H8803] : terrors H413 by reason of H2719 the sword H5971 shall be upon my people H5606 [H8798] : smite H3409 therefore upon thy thigh.
13 H974 [H8795] Because it is a trial H3988 [H8802] , and what if the sword despise H7626 even the rod H5002 [H8803] ? it shall be no more, saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
14 H1121 Thou therefore, son H120 of man H5012 [H8734] , prophesy H5221 0 , and smite H3709 thy hands H5221 [H8685] together H2719 , and let the sword H3717 [H8735] be doubled 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 [H8802] , which entereth into their private chambers.
15 H5414 [H8804] I have set H19 the point H2719 of the sword H8179 against all their gates H3820 , that their heart H4127 [H8800] may faint H4383 , and their ruins H7235 [H8687] be multiplied H253 : ah H6213 [H8803] ! it is made H1300 bright H4593 , it is sharpened H2874 for the slaughter.
16 H258 [H8690] Go thee one way or other H7760 [H8685] , either on H3231 [H8685] the right hand H8041 [H8685] , or on the left H575 , wherever H6440 thy face H3259 [H8716] is set.
17 H5221 [H8686] I will also smite H3709 my hands H3709 together H2534 , and I will cause my fury H5117 [H8689] to rest H3068 : I the LORD H1696 [H8765] have said it.
19 H1121 Also, thou son H120 of man H7760 [H8798] , mark H8147 two H1870 ways H2719 , that the sword H4428 of the king H894 of Babylon H935 [H8800] may come H8147 : both ways H3318 [H8799] shall come forth H259 from one H776 land H1254 [H8761] : and choose H3027 thou a place H1254 [H8761] , choose H7218 it at the head H1870 of the way H5892 to the city.
20 H7760 [H8799] Mark H1870 a way H2719 , that the sword H935 [H8800] may come H7237 to Rabbah H1121 H5983 of the Ammonites H3063 , and to Judah H3389 in Jerusalem H1219 [H8803] the fortified.
21 H4428 For the king H894 of Babylon H5975 [H8804] stood H517 at the parting H1870 of the way H7218 , at the head H8147 of the two H1870 ways H7080 [H8800] , to use H7081 divination H2671 : he made his arrows H7043 [H8773] bright H7592 [H8804] , he consulted H8655 with images H7200 [H8804] , he looked H3516 in the liver.
22 H3225 At his right hand H7081 was the divination H3389 for Jerusalem H7760 [H8800] , to appoint H3733 captains H6605 [H8800] , to open H6310 the mouth H7524 in the slaughter H7311 [H8687] , to lift up H6963 the voice H8643 with shouting H7760 [H8800] , to appoint H3733 battering rams H8179 against the gates H8210 [H8800] , to cast H5550 a siege mound H1129 [H8800] , and to build H1785 a fort.
23 H7723 And it shall be to them as a false H7080 [H8800] divination H5869 in their sight H7650 [H8803] , to them that have sworn H7621 oaths H2142 [H8688] : but he will call to remembrance H5771 the iniquity H8610 [H8736] , that they may be taken.
24 H559 [H8804] Therefore thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5771 ; Because ye have made your iniquity H2142 [H8687] to be remembered H6588 , in that your transgressions H1540 [H8736] are discovered H5949 , so that in all your doings H2403 your sins H7200 [H8736] do appear H2142 [H8736] ; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance H8610 [H8735] , ye shall be taken H3709 with the hand.
25 H2491 And thou, profane H7563 wicked H5387 prince H3478 of Israel H3117 , whose day H935 [H8804] is come H6256 , when H5771 iniquity H7093 shall have an end,
26 H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H5493 [H8685] ; Remove H4701 the diadem H7311 [H8685] , and take off H5850 the crown H2063 : this shall not be the same H1361 [H8687] : exalt H8217 him that is low H8213 [H8687] , and abase H1364 him that is high.
27 H5754 I will overturn H5754 , overturn H5754 , overturn H7760 [H8799] , it: and it shall be H935 [H8800] no more, until he cometh H4941 whose right H5414 [H8804] it is; and I will give it him.
28 H1121 And thou, son H120 of man H5012 [H8734] , prophesy H559 [H8804] and say H559 [H8804] , Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD H1121 H5983 concerning the Ammonites H2781 , and concerning their reproach H559 [H8804] ; even say H2719 thou, The sword H2719 , the sword H6605 [H8803] is drawn H2874 : for the slaughter H4803 [H8803] it is polished H398 [H8687] , to consume H1300 because of the glittering:
29 H2372 [H8800] While they see H7723 vanity H7080 [H8800] to thee, while they divine H3577 a lie H5414 [H8800] to thee, to bring H6677 thee upon the necks H2491 of them that are slain H7563 , of the wicked H3117 , whose day H935 [H8804] is come H6256 , when H5771 their iniquity H7093 shall have an end.
30 H7725 [H8685] Shall I cause it to return H8593 into its sheath H8199 [H8799] ? I will judge H4725 thee in the place H1254 [H8738] where thou wast created H776 , in the land H4351 of thy nativity.
31 H8210 [H8804] And I will pour out H2195 my indignation H6315 [H8686] upon thee, I will blow H784 against thee in the fire H5678 of my wrath H5414 [H8804] , and deliver H3027 thee into the hand H1197 [H8802] of cruel H582 men H2796 , and skilful H4889 to destroy.
