View In My Bible
13 I will spread my net1 for him, and he will be caught in my snare;2 I will bring him to Babylonia, the land of the Chaldeans,3 but he will not see4 it, and there he will die.5 14 I will scatter to the winds all those around him--his staff and all his troops--and I will pursue them with drawn sword.6 15 "They will know that I am the LORD, when I disperse them among the nations7 and scatter them through the countries. 16 But I will spare a few of them from the sword, famine and plague, so that in the nations where they go they may acknowledge all their detestable practices. Then they will know that I am the LORD.8" 17 The word of the LORD came to me: 18 "Son of man, tremble as you eat your food,9 and shudder in fear as you drink your water. 19 Say to the people of the land: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says about those living in Jerusalem and in the land of Israel: They will eat their food in anxiety and drink their water in despair, for their land will be stripped of everything10 in it because of the violence of all who live there.11 20 The inhabited towns will be laid waste and the land will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.12' " 21 The word of the LORD came to me: 22 "Son of man, what is this proverb13 you have in the land of Israel: 'The days go by and every vision comes to nothing'?14 23 Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I am going to put an end to this proverb, and they will no longer quote it in Israel.' Say to them, 'The days are near15 when every vision will be fulfilled.16
