The LORD's word came to me:
References for Ezekiel 21:1
Human one, face Jerusalem, preach against their sanctuary, and prophesy against Israel's fertile land.
Say to Israel's fertile land, The LORD proclaims: I'm now against you! I will draw my sword from its sheath and cut off both the righteous and the wicked from you.
In order to cut off the righteous and wicked from you, my sword will go out from its sheath against everyone from south to north.
And everyone will know that I, the LORD, have taken my sword out of its sheath. It won't be put away again.
You, human one, groan in their sight; groan bitterly with trembling knees.
