The word of the LORDcame to me saying,
"As for you, son of man, a1maketwoways for the sword of the king of Babylon to come; both of them will go out of oneland. And bmake a signpost; cmake it at the head of the way to the city.
"You shall dmark a way for the sword to come to 2Rabbah of the sons of Ammon, and to Judah into 3fortifiedJerusalem.
"For the king of Babylonstands at the eparting of the way, at the head of the twoways, to use4divination; he 5shakes the arrows, he consults the f6householdidols, he looks at the liver.
"Into his righthandcame the divination, 'Jerusalem,' to 7setbatteringrams, to open the mouthgfor slaughter, to lift up the voice with a battlecry, to setbatteringramsagainst the gates, to cast up ramps, to build a siegewall.
"And it will be to them like a falsedivination in their eyes; 8they have sworn solemnoaths. But he 9bringsiniquity to remembrance, that they may be seized.
24"Therefore, thussays the LordGOD, 'Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are uncovered, so that in all your deeds your sinsappear-because you have come to remembrance, you will be seized with the hand.
