7 Wherefore ye shepherds, hear ye the word of Yahweh:
Ezekiel 34:7 Cross References - Rotherham
1 A Melody of Asaph. 2 How long will ye judge perversely, And, the countenances of the lawless, uplift? [Selah.] 3 Vindicate the weak and the fatherless, The oppressed and the poor, see righted; 4 Deliver the weak sad the needy, Out of the hand of the lawless, make rescue. 5 They know not, neither can they perceive, In darkness, they wander, All the foundations of the earth do shake. 6 I, said, Gods, ye are, Yea, sons of the Highest, are ye all; 7 But indeed, like the earth-born, shall ye die! And, like one of the princes, shall ye fall!
10 Hear the word of Yahweh, ye rulers of Sodom,—Give ear to the instruction of our God, ye people of Gomorrah:—
13 Then shalt thou say unto them—Thus, saith Yahweh—Behold me! filling all the inhabitants of this land Even the kings that are sitting for David upon his throne and the priests and the prophets, and all the inhabitants of Jerusalem—with drunkenness;
18 Say thou to the king and to the queen-mother, Abase yourselves—Sit down,—For descended have your Head-tires, your Crown of adornment.
2 and say—Hear thou the word of Yahweh O king of Judah who sittest upon the throne of David,—thou, and thy servants and thy people who enter in at these gates, 3 Thus, saith Yahweh,—Execute ye justice, and righteousness, And deliver the robbed out of the hand of the oppressor,—But the sojourner the fatherless, and the widow, do not oppress neither commit violence, And the blood of the innocent, do not ye shed, in this place.
9 Therefore ye shepherds, hear ye the word of Yahweh:
8 But, in very deed, I, am full of vigour, with the spirit of Yahweh, and of justice and of valour,—to declare to Jacob, his transgression, and to Israel, his sin. 9 Hear this, I pray you, ye heads of the house of Jacob, and ye judges of the house of Israel,—who abhor justice, and, all right, do pervert:
1 Now, therefore, for you, is this charge, O ye priests:—
13 14 But alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye are locking up the kingdom of the heavens before men,—for, ye, are not entering, neither, them who are entering, suffer ye to enter. 15 Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites: because ye compass sea and dry land, to make one convert—and, when it is done, ye make him a son of gehenna, twofold more than ye. 16 Alas for you, blind guides! that say—Whosoever shall swear by the Temple, it is, nothing, but, whosoever shall swear by the gold of the Temple, is bound: 17 Foolish and blind! for which is, greater, The gold, or the Temple that hath hallowed the gold? 18 And, whosoever shall swear by the altar, it is, nothing, but, whosoever shall swear by the gift that is upon it, is bound: 19 Blind! for which is greater, The gift, or the altar that halloweth the gift? 20 He therefore that hath sworn by the altar, sweareth by it, and by all that is upon it; 21 And, he that hath sworn by the Temple, sweareth by it, and by him who dwelleth therein; 22 And, he that hath sworn by heaven, sweareth by the throne of God, and by him who sitteth thereupon. 23 Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye tithe the mint and the anise and the cummin,—and have dismissed the weightier matters of the law—the justice, the mercy, and the faith; whereas, these, it was binding, to do, and, those, not to, dismiss. 24 Blind guides! Straining out the gnat, but, the camel, swallowing. 25 Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish,—while, within, they are full of plunder and intemperance. 26 Blind Pharisee! cleanse, first, the inside, of the cup [and of the dish], that, the outside thereof, may become, clean. 27 Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye make yourselves like sepulchres whitewashed, which, outside, indeed, appear, beautiful, but, within, are full, of dead men’s bones and all uncleanness,— 28 Thus, ye also, outside, indeed, appear to men, righteous, but, within, are full, of hypocrisy and lawlessness. 29 Alas for you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because ye build the sepulchres of the prophets, and adorn the monuments of the righteous, 30 and say—If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been their partners in the blood of the prophets: 31 So that ye bear witness against yourselves, that ye are, sons, of them who murdered the prophets. 32 And, ye, fill ye up the measure of your fathers! 33 Serpents! broods of vipers! how should ye flee from the judgment of gehenna? 34 For this cause, lo! I, send unto you, prophets and wise men and scribes,—some from among them, ye will slay and crucify, And some from among them ye will—scourge in your synagogues, and pursue from city to city: 35 That there may come upon you—all righteous blood poured out upon the earth, from the blood of Abel the righteous, unto the blood of Zachariah, son of Barachiah, whom ye murdered between the Temple and the altar. 36 Verily, I say unto you—All these things, will have come, upon this generation.
39 And the Lord said unto him: Now, ye, the Pharisees, the outside of the cup and of the tray, do make pure; but, your inward part, is full of plunder and wickedness. 40 Simple ones! Did not, he who made the outside, the inside also, make? 41 Notwithstanding, as to the things within, give alms, and lo! everything, is, pure unto you. 42 But alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye tithe the mint, and the rue, and every garden herb, and pass by justice, and the love of God. But, these things, it was biding to do, and, those, not to pass by. 43 Alas for you, the Pharisees! because ye love the first seats in the synagogues, and the salutations in the market-places! 44 Alas for you! because ye are as the secret tombs: even the men that are walking above them, know it not. 45 And, making answer, one of the Lawyers saith unto him, Teacher! these things, saying, us also, dost thou insult! 46 And, he, said—And, for you, the lawyers, alas! because ye lade men with burdens hard to be borne, and, yourselves, with one of your fingers, touch not the burdens. 47 Alas for you! because ye build the tombs of the prophets, and your fathers slew them! 48 Hence, witnesses, are ye, and find consenting pleasure in the works of your fathers: because, they, indeed, slew them, and, ye, are building, [their tombs] . 49 For this cause, the Wisdom of God hath said—I will send forth, unto them, prophets and apostles,—and, some from among them, will they slay, and, [some] persecute: 50 That the blood of all the prophets which hath been shed from the foundation of the world, may be sought out, from this generation,— 51 From the blood of Abel, unto the blood of Zachariah who was destroyed betwixt the altar and the house; Yea! I say unto you—It shall be sought out from this generation. 52 Alas for you, the lawyers! because ye took away the key of knowledge: yourselves, entered not, and, them who were entering, ye hindered. 53 And, when, from thence, he came out, the Scribes and the Pharisees began, with vehemence, to be hemming him in, and trying to make him speak off-hand concerning many things,— 54 lying in wait for him, to catch something out of his mouth.
