The Instrument of God's Judgment

18 The word of the LORD came to me saying, 19 "As for you, son of man, a1make two ways for the sword of the king of Babylon to come; both of them will go out of one land. And bmake a signpost; cmake it at the head of the way to the city. 20 "You shall dmark a way for the sword to come to 2Rabbah of the sons of Ammon, and to Judah into 3fortified Jerusalem. 21 "For the king of Babylon stands at the eparting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use 4divination; he 5shakes the arrows, he consults the f6household idols, he looks at the liver. 22 "Into his right hand came the divination, 'Jerusalem,' to 7set battering rams, to open the mouth gfor slaughter, to lift up the voice with a battle cry, to set battering rams against the gates, to cast up ramps, to build a siege wall. 23 "And it will be to them like a false divination in their eyes; 8they have sworn solemn oaths. But he 9brings iniquity to remembrance, that they may be seized. 24 "Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, 'Because you have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are uncovered, so that in all your deeds your sins appear -because you have come to remembrance, you will be seized with the hand.
