Warning of Coming Destruction

2 "I will sweep away everything from the face of the earth,"3 declares the LORD. 3 "I will sweep away both men and animals;4 I will sweep away the birds of the air5 and the fish of the sea. The wicked will have only heaps of rubblea when I cut off man from the face of the earth,"6 declares the LORD.7

Against Judah

4 "I will stretch out my hand8 against Judah and against all who live in Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal,9 the names of the pagan and the idolatrous priests10-- 5 those who bow down on the roofs to worship the starry host,11 those who bow down and swear by the LORD and who also swear by Molech,b12 6 those who turn back from following13 the LORD and neither seek14 the LORD nor inquire15 of him.
