I will stretch out my hand against Judah, and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal and the name of the idolatrous priests; a5
those who bow down on the roofs to the host of the heavens; those who bow down and swear to the Lord, but also swear by Milcom; b6
those who have turned back from following the Lord, who have not sought the Lord or inquired of him.
Be silent before the Lord God! For the day of the Lord is at hand; the Lord has prepared a sacrifice, he has consecrated his guests.
And on the day of the Lord's sacrifice I will punish the officials and the king's sons and all who dress themselves in foreign attire.
On that day I will punish all who leap over the threshold, who fill their master's house with violence and fraud.
