Jerusalem Will Be Destroyed

1 "And you, 1O son of man, take a 2sharp sword. Use it as 3a barber's razor and 4pass it over your head and your beard. Then take balances for weighing and divide the hair. 2 5A third part you shall burn in the fire 6in the midst of the city, 7when the days of the siege are completed. And a third part you shall take and strike with the sword all around the city. 8And a third part you shall scatter to the wind, and 9I will unsheathe the sword after them. 3 10And you shall take from these a small number and bind them in the skirts of your robe. 4 11And of these again you shall take some and cast them into the midst of the fire and burn them in the fire. From there a fire will come out into all the house of Israel. 5 "Thus says the Lord GOD: 12This is Jerusalem. I have set her 13in the center of the nations, with countries all around her. 6 And she has rebelled against my rules by doing wickedness 14more than the nations, and against my statutes more than 15the countries all around her; for they have rejected my rules and have not walked in my statutes.
