Ezekiel 5:1-6 (Bible in Basic English)

View In My Bible
1 And you, son of man, take a sharp sword, using it like a haircutter's blade, and making it go over your head and the hair of your chin: and take scales for separating the hair by weight. 2 You are to have a third part burned with fire inside the town, when the days of the attack are ended; and a third part you are to take and give blows with the sword round about it; and give a third part for the wind to take away, and let loose a sword after them. 3 And take from them a small number of hairs, folding them in your skirts. 4 And again take some of these and put them in the fire, burning them up in the fire; and say to all the children of Israel, 5 This is what the Lord has said: This is Jerusalem: I have put her among the nations, and countries are round her on every side; 6 And she has gone against my orders by doing evil more than the nations, and against my rules more than the countries round her: for they have given up my orders, and as for my rules, they have not gone in the way of them.
