I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. I will eliminate what's left of Baal from this place and the names of the priests of foreign gods,a5
those bowing down to the forces of heaven on the rooftops, those swearing by the LORD along with those swearing by Milcom,
those turning away from the LORD, those who don't seek the LORD and don't pursue him.
Hush before the LORD God, for the day of the LORD is near! The LORD has established a sacrifice; he has made holy those he has summoned.
On the day of the LORD's sacrifice, I will punish the princes, the king's sons, and all those wearing foreign clothes.
I will punish the one leaping on the threshold on that day, those filling the house of their master with violence and deceit.
