The word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, turn your face toward Sidon and prophesy against it.
You are to say: This is what the Lord God says: Look! I am against you, Sidon, and I will display My glory within you. They will know that I am the Lord when I execute judgments against hera and demonstrate My holiness through her.
I will send a plague against her and bloodshed in her streets; the slain will fall within her, while the sword is against herb on every side. Then they will know that I am the Lord.
"The house of Israel will no longer be hurt byc prickling briers or painful thornsd from all their neighbors who treat them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord God .
"This is what the Lord God says: When I gather the house of Israele from the peoples where they are scattered and demonstrate My holiness through them in the sight of the nations, then they will live in their own land, which I gave to My servant Jacob.
They will live there securely,f build houses, and plant vineyards.g They will live securely when I execute judgmentsh against all their neighbors who treat them with contempt. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God."
