Ezekiel 20

new(i)
  1 H7637 And it came to pass in the seventh H8141 year, H2549 in the fifth H6218 month, the tenth H2320 day of the month, H582 that certain H2205 of the elders H3478 of Israel H935 [H8804] came H1875 [H8800] to enquire H3068 of the LORD, H3427 [H8799] and sat H6440 before me.
  2 H1697 Then came the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] to me, saying,
  3 H1121 Son H120 of man, H1696 [H8761] speak H2205 to the elders H3478 of Israel, H559 [H8804] and say H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H935 [H8802] Are ye come H1875 [H8800] to enquire H2416 of me? As I live, H5002 [H8803] saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, H1875 [H8735] I will not be enquired of by you.
  4 H8199 [H8799] Wilt thou judge H1121 them, son H120 of man, H8199 [H8799] wilt thou judge H3045 [H8685] them? cause them to know H8441 the abominations H1 of their fathers:
  5 H559 [H8804] And say H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H3117 In the day H977 [H8800] when I chose H3478 Israel, H5375 [H8799] and lifted up H3027 my hand H2233 to the seed H1004 of the house H3290 of Jacob, H3045 [H8735] and made myself known H776 to them in the land H4714 of Egypt, H5375 [H8799] when I lifted H3027 up my hand H559 [H8800] to them, saying, H3068 I am the LORD H430 your God;
  6 H3117 In the day H5375 [H8804] that I lifted up H3027 my hand H3318 [H8687] to them, to bring them forth H776 from the land H4714 of Egypt H776 into a land H8446 [H8804] that I had searched out H2100 [H8802] for them, flowing H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H6643 which is the glory H776 of all lands:
  7 H559 [H8799] Then said H7993 [H8685] I to them, Cast ye away H376 every man H8251 the abominations H5869 of his eyes, H2930 [H8691] and defile H1544 not yourselves with the idols H4714 of Egypt: H3068 I am the LORD H430 your God.
  8 H4784 [H8686] But they rebelled H14 [H8804] against me, and would H8085 [H8800] not hearken H376 to me: they did not every man H7993 [H8689] cast away H8251 the abominations H5869 of their eyes, H5800 [H8804] neither did they forsake H1544 the idols H4714 of Egypt: H559 [H8799] then I said, H8210 [H8800] I will pour out H2534 my fury H3615 [H8763] upon them, to accomplish H639 my anger H8432 against them in the midst H776 of the land H4714 of Egypt.
  9 H6213 [H8799] But I wrought H8034 for my name's H2490 [H8736] sake, that it should not be profaned H5869 before H1471 the nations, H8432 among H5869 whom they were, in whose sight H3045 [H8738] I made myself known H3318 [H8687] to them, in bringing them forth H776 from the land H4714 of Egypt.
  10 H3318 [H8686] Therefore I caused them to go forth H776 from the land H4714 of Egypt, H935 [H8686] and brought H4057 them into the wilderness.
  11 H5414 [H8799] And I gave H2708 them my statutes, H3045 [H8689] and showed H4941 them my judgments, H120 which if a man H6213 [H8799] doeth, H2425 [H8804] he shall even live in them.
  12 H5414 [H8804] Moreover also I gave H7676 them my sabbaths, H226 to be a sign H3045 [H8800] between me and them, that they might know H3068 that I am the LORD H6942 [H8764] that sanctify them.
  13 H1004 But the house H3478 of Israel H4784 [H8686] rebelled H4057 against me in the wilderness: H1980 [H8804] they walked H2708 not in my statutes, H3988 [H8804] and they despised H4941 my judgments, H120 which if a man H6213 [H8799] doeth, H2425 [H8804] he shall even live H7676 in them; and my sabbaths H3966 they greatly H2490 [H8765] profaned: H559 [H8799] then I said, H8210 [H8800] I would pour out H2534 my fury H4057 upon them in the wilderness, H3615 [H8763] to consume them.
  14 H6213 [H8799] But I wrought H8034 for my name's H2490 [H8736] sake, that it should not be profaned H5869 before H1471 the nations, H5869 in whose sight H3318 [H8689] I brought them out.
  15 H5375 [H8804] Yet also I lifted up H3027 my hand H4057 to them in the wilderness, H935 [H8687] that I would not bring H776 them into the land H5414 [H8804] which I had given H2100 [H8802] them, flowing H2461 with milk H1706 and honey, H6643 which is the glory H776 of all lands;
  16 H3988 [H8804] Because they despised H4941 my judgments, H1980 [H8804] and walked H2708 not in my statutes, H2490 [H8765] but profaned H7676 my sabbaths: H3820 for their heart H1980 [H8802] went H310 after H1544 their idols.
  17 H5869 Nevertheless my eye H2347 [H8799] spared H7843 [H8763] them from decaying H6213 [H8804] them, neither did I make H3617 an end H4057 of them in the wilderness.
  18 H559 [H8799] But I said H1121 to their children H4057 in the wilderness, H3212 [H8799] Walk H2706 ye not in the statutes H1 of your fathers, H8104 [H8799] neither observe H4941 their judgments, H2930 [H8691] nor defile H1544 yourselves with their idols:
  19 H3068 I am the LORD H430 your God; H3212 [H8798] walk H2708 in my statutes, H8104 [H8798] and keep H4941 my judgments, H6213 [H8798] and do them;
  20 H6942 [H8761] And hallow H7676 my sabbaths; H226 and they shall be a sign H3045 [H8800] between me and you, that ye may know H3068 that I am the LORD H430 your God.
  21 H1121 However the children H4784 [H8686] rebelled H1980 [H8804] against me: they walked H2708 not in my statutes, H8104 [H8804] neither kept H4941 my judgments H6213 [H8800] to do H120 them, which if a man H6213 [H8799] doeth, H2425 [H8804] he shall even live H2490 [H8765] in them; they profaned H7676 my sabbaths: H559 [H8799] then I said, H8210 [H8800] I would pour out H2534 my fury H3615 [H8763] upon them, to accomplish H639 my anger H4057 against them in the wilderness.
  22 H7725 [H8689] Nevertheless I withdrew H3027 my hand, H6213 [H8799] and wrought H8034 for my name's H2490 [H8736] sake, that it should not be profaned H5869 in the sight H1471 of the nations, H5869 in whose sight H3318 [H8689] I brought them forth.
  23 H5375 [H8804] I lifted up H3027 my hand H4057 to them also in the wilderness, H6327 [H8687] that I would scatter H1471 them among the nations, H2219 [H8763] and disperse H776 them through the lands;
  24 H6213 [H8804] Because they had not executed H4941 my judgments, H3988 [H8804] but had despised H2708 my statutes, H2490 [H8765] and had profaned H7676 my sabbaths, H5869 and their eyes H310 were after H1 their fathers' H1544 idols.
  25 H5414 [H8804] Therefore I gave H2706 them also statutes H2896 that were not good, H4941 and judgments H2421 [H8799] by which they should not live;
  26 H2930 [H8762] And I polluted H4979 them in their own gifts, H5674 [H8687] in that they caused to pass through H6363 the fire all that openeth H7356 the womb, H8074 [H8686] that I might make them desolate, H3045 [H8799] to the end that they might know H3068 that I am the LORD.
  27 H1121 Therefore, son H120 of man, H1696 [H8761] speak H1004 to the house H3478 of Israel, H559 [H8804] and say H559 [H8804] to them, Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H1 Yet in this your fathers H1442 [H8765] have reviled H4603 [H8800] me, in that they have committed H4604 a treachery against me.
  28 H935 [H8686] For when I had brought H776 them into the land, H5375 [H8804] for which I lifted up H3027 my hand H5414 [H8800] to give H7200 [H8799] it to them, then they saw H7311 [H8802] every high H1389 hill, H5687 and all the thick H6086 trees, H2076 [H8799] and they offered H2077 there their sacrifices, H5414 [H8799] and there they presented H3708 the provocation H7133 of their offering: H7760 [H8799] there also they made H5207 their sweet H7381 savour, H5258 [H8686] and poured out H5262 there their drink offerings.
  29 H559 [H8799] Then I said H1116 to them, What is the high place H935 [H8802] to which ye go? H8034 And its name H7121 [H8735] is called H1117 Bamah H3117 to this day.
  30 H559 [H8798] Therefore say H1004 to the house H3478 of Israel, H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H2930 [H8737] Are ye polluted H1870 after the manner H1 of your fathers? H2181 [H8802] and commit ye harlotry H310 after H8251 their abominations?
  31 H5375 [H8800] For when ye offer H4979 your gifts, H1121 when ye make your sons H5674 [H8687] to pass through H784 the fire, H2930 [H8737] ye pollute H1544 yourselves with all your idols, H3117 even to this day: H1875 [H8735] and shall I be enquired H1004 of by you, O house H3478 of Israel? H2416 As I live, H5002 [H8803] saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, H1875 [H8735] I will not be enquired of by you.
  32 H5927 [H8802] And that which cometh H7307 into your spirit H559 [H8802] shall not be at all, that ye say, H1961 [H8799] We will be H1471 as the nations, H4940 as the families H776 of the lands, H8334 [H8763] to serve H6086 wood H68 and stone.
  33 H2416 As I live, H5002 [H8803] saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, H2389 surely with a mighty H3027 hand, H5186 [H8803] and with an outstretched H2220 arm, H2534 and with fury H8210 [H8803] poured out, H4427 [H8799] will I rule over you:
  34 H3318 [H8689] And I will bring you out H5971 from the people, H6908 [H8765] and will gather H776 you out of the lands H6327 [H8738] in which ye are scattered, H2389 with a mighty H3027 hand, H5186 [H8803] and with an outstretched H2220 arm, H2534 and with fury H8210 [H8803] poured out.
  35 H935 [H8689] And I will bring H4057 you into the wilderness H5971 of the people, H8199 [H8738] and there will I enter into judgment H6440 with you face H6440 to face.
  36 H8199 [H8738] As I entered into judgment H1 with your fathers H4057 in the wilderness H776 of the land H4714 of Egypt, H8199 [H8735] so will I enter into judgment H5002 [H8803] with you, saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
  37 H5674 [H8689] And I will cause you to pass H7626 under the rod, H935 [H8689] and I will bring H4562 you into the bond H1285 of the covenant:
  38 H1305 [H8804] And I will purge out H4775 [H8802] from among you the rebels, H6586 [H8802] and them that transgress H3318 [H8686] against me: I will bring them forth H776 out of the land H4033 of their sojournings, H935 [H8799] and they shall not enter H127 into the soil H3478 of Israel: H3045 [H8804] and ye shall know H3068 that I am the LORD.
  39 H1004 As for you, O house H3478 of Israel, H559 [H8804] thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H3212 [H8798] Go H5647 [H8798] ye, serve H376 ye every one H1544 his idols, H310 and after this H8085 [H8802] also, if ye will not hearken H2490 [H8762] to me: but profane H6944 ye my holy H8034 name H4979 no more with your gifts, H1544 and with your idols.
  40 H6944 For on my holy H2022 mountain, H2022 on the mountain H4791 of the height H3478 of Israel, H5002 [H8803] saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD, H1004 there shall all the house H3478 of Israel, H776 all of them in the land, H5647 [H8799] serve H7521 [H8799] me: there will I accept H1875 [H8799] them, and there will I require H8641 your offerings, H7225 and the firstfruits H4864 of your oblations, H6944 with all your holy things.
  41 H7521 [H8799] I will accept H5207 you with your sweet H7381 savour, H3318 [H8687] when I bring you out H5971 from the people, H6908 [H8765] and gather H776 you out of the lands H6327 [H8738] in which ye have been scattered; H6942 [H8738] and I will be sanctified H5869 in you before H1471 the nations.
  42 H3045 [H8804] And ye shall know H3068 that I am the LORD, H935 [H8687] when I shall bring H127 you into the soil H3478 of Israel, H776 into the land H5375 [H8804] for which I lifted up H3027 my hand H5414 [H8800] to give H1 it to your fathers.
  43 H2142 [H8804] And there shall ye remember H1870 your ways, H5949 and all your doings, H2930 [H8738] in which ye have been defiled; H6962 [H8738] and ye shall lothe H6440 yourselves in your own sight H7451 for all your evils H6213 [H8804] that ye have committed.
  44 H3045 [H8804] And ye shall know H3068 that I am the LORD, H6213 [H8800] when I have wrought H8034 with you for my name's H7451 sake, not according to your wicked H1870 ways, H7843 [H8737] nor according to your corrupt H5949 doings, H1004 O ye house H3478 of Israel, H5002 [H8803] saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD.
  45 H1697 Moreover the word H3068 of the LORD H559 [H8800] came to me, saying,
  46 H1121 Son H120 of man, H7760 [H8798] set H6440 thy face H1870 toward H8486 the south, H5197 [H8685] and drop H1864 thy word toward the south, H5012 [H8734] and prophesy H3293 against the forest H5045 of the south H7704 field;
  47 H559 [H8804] And say H3293 to the forest H5045 of the south, H8085 [H8798] Hear H1697 the word H3068 of the LORD; H559 [H8804] Thus saith H136 the Lord H3069 GOD; H3341 [H8688] Behold, I will kindle H784 a fire H398 [H8804] in thee, and it shall devour H3892 every green H6086 tree H3002 in thee, and every dry H6086 tree: H3852 the blazing H7957 flame H3518 [H8799] shall not be quenched, H6440 and all faces H5045 from the south H6828 to the north H6866 [H8738] shall be burned in it.
  48 H1320 And all flesh H7200 [H8804] shall see H3068 that I the LORD H1197 [H8765] have kindled H3518 [H8799] it: it shall not be quenched.
  49 H559 [H8799] Then said H162 I, Ah H136 Lord H3069 GOD! H559 [H8802] they say H4911 [H8764] of me, Doth he not speak H4912 parables?
