And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face against Jerusalem, and drop [words] against the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Israel,
and say to the land of Israel, Thus saith Jehovah: Behold, I am against thee, and I will draw forth my sword out of its sheath, and will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked.
Seeing that I will cut off from thee the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of its sheath against all flesh, from the south to the north;
and all flesh shall know that I Jehovah have drawn forth my sword out of its sheath: it shall not return any more.
Sigh then, thou son of man; with breaking of the loins, and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.
