Ezekiel 11:6-16 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
6 You have killed many people in this city and filled its streets with the dead.1 7 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: The bodies you have thrown there are the meat and this city is the pot,2 but I will drive you out of it.3 8 You fear the sword,4 and the sword is what I will bring against you, declares the Sovereign LORD.5 9 I will drive you out of the city and hand you over6 to foreigners and inflict punishment on you.7 10 You will fall by the sword, and I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel.8 Then you will know that I am the LORD. 11 This city will not be a pot9 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,10 for you have not followed my decrees11 or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you.12" 13 Now as I was prophesying, Pelatiah13 son of Benaiah died. Then I fell facedown and cried out in a loud voice, "Ah, Sovereign LORD! Will you completely destroy the remnant of Israel?14" 14 The word of the LORD came to me: 15 "Son of man, your brothers--your brothers who are your blood relativesa and the whole house of Israel--are those of whom the people of Jerusalem have said, 'They areb far away from the LORD; this land was given to us as our possession.'15
