And the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
And you, son of man, will you be a judge, will you be a judge of the town of blood? then make clear to her all her disgusting ways.
And you are to say, This is what the Lord has said: A town causing blood to be drained out in her streets so that her time may come, and making images in her to make her unclean!
You are responsible for the blood drained out by you, and you are unclean through the images which you have made; and you have made your day come near, and the time of your judging has come; for this cause I have made you a name of shame to the nations and a cause of laughing to all countries.
Those who are near and those who are far from you will make sport of you; your name is unclean, you are full of sounds of fear.
See, the rulers of Israel, every one in his family, have been causing death in you.
In you they have had no respect for father and mother; in you they have been cruel to the man from a strange land; in you they have done wrong to the child without a father and to the widow.
