"I will stretch out my hand1 against Judah and against all who live in Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal,2 the names of the pagan and the idolatrous priests3--
those who bow down on the roofs to worship the starry host,4 those who bow down and swear by the LORD and who also swear by Molech,a56
those who turn back from following6 the LORD and neither seek7 the LORD nor inquire8 of him.
Be silent9 before the Sovereign LORD, for the day of the LORD10 is near. The LORD has prepared a sacrifice;11 he has consecrated those he has invited.
On the day of the LORD's sacrifice I will punish12 the princes and the king's sons13 and all those clad in foreign clothes.
On that day I will punish all who avoid stepping on the threshold,b14 who fill the temple of their gods with violence and deceit.15
