"I will stretch out my hand against Judah, and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off from this place the remnant of Ba'al and the name of the idolatrous priests;
those who bow down on the roofs to the host of the heavens; those who bow down and swear to the LORD and yet swear by Milcom;
those who have turned back from following the LORD, who do not seek the LORD or inquire of him."
Be silent before the Lord GOD! For the day of the LORD is at hand; the LORD has prepared a sacrifice and 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 array themselves in foreign attire.
On that day I will punish every one who leaps over the threshold, and those who fill their master's house with violence and fraud."
