I will stretch out My hand against Judah and against all the residents of Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every vestige of Baal, the names of the pagan priestsa along with the priests;
those who bow in worship on the rooftops to the heavenly host; those who bow and pledge loyalty to the Lord but also pledge loyalty to Milcom;b6
and those who turn back from following the Lord, who do not seek the Lord or inquire of Him.
Be silent in the presence of the Lord God ,c for the Day of the Lord is near. Indeed, the Lord has prepared a sacrifice; He has consecrated His guests.
On the day of the Lord's sacrifice I will punish the officials, the king's sons, and all who are dressed in foreign clothing.
On that day I will punish all who skip over the threshold,de who fill their master's house with violence and deceit.
