The word of the LORD came unto me again, saying ,
Also, thou son of man,appoint thee twoways, that the sword of the king of Babylon may come : both twain shall come forth out of oneland: and choose thou a place,choose it at the head of the way to the city.20Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbath of the Ammonites , and to Judah in Jerusalem the defenced .
For the king of Babylonstood at the parting of the way, at the head of the twoways, to usedivination: he made his arrowsbright , he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.22
At his right hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to appointcaptains,a to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint battering rams against the gates, to cast a mount, and to build a fort.23
And it shall be unto them as a falsedivination in their sight, to them that have swornoaths: but he will call to remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken .
Therefore thus saith the LordGOD; Because ye have made your iniquity to be remembered , in that your transgressions are discovered , so that in all your doings your sins do appear ; because, I say, that ye are come to remembrance , ye shall be taken with the hand.
