And the word of Jehovah came unto me, saying,
Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,
and say, Mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord Jehovah: thus saith the Lord Jehovah to the mountains and to the hills, to the water-courses a and to the valleys: Behold, I, [even] I, do bring a sword upon you, and will destroy your high places.
And your altars shall be desolate, and your sun-images shall be broken; and I will cast down your slain [men] before your idols;
and I will lay the dead bodies of the children of Israel before their idols; b and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.
In all your dwelling-places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your sun-images may be cut down, and your works may be abolished.
And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I [am] Jehovah.
