Ezekiel 11:2-12 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
2 The LORD said to me, "Son of man, these are the men who are plotting evil1 and giving wicked advice in this city.2 3 They say, 'Will it not soon be time to build houses?a This city is a cooking pot,3 and we are the meat.'4 4 Therefore prophesy5 against them; prophesy, son of man." 5 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon me, and he told me to say: "This is what the LORD says: That is what you are saying, O house of Israel, but I know what is going through your mind.6 6 You have killed many people in this city and filled its streets with the dead.7 7 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: The bodies you have thrown there are the meat and this city is the pot,8 but I will drive you out of it.9 8 You fear the sword,10 and the sword is what I will bring against you, declares the Sovereign LORD.11 9 I will drive you out of the city and hand you over12 to foreigners and inflict punishment on you.13 10 You will fall by the sword, and I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel.14 Then you will know that I am the LORD. 11 This city will not be a pot15 for you, nor will you be the meat in it; I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel. 12 And you will know that I am the LORD,16 for you have not followed my decrees17 or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you.18"
