View In My Bible
7 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: You have been more unruly than the nations around you and have not followed my decrees or kept my laws. You have not evena conformed to the standards of the nations around you.1 8 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: I myself am against you, Jerusalem, and I will inflict punishment on you in the sight of the nations.2 9 Because of all your detestable idols, I will do to you what I have never done before and will never do again.3 10 Therefore in your midst fathers will eat their children, and children will eat their fathers.4 I will inflict punishment on you and will scatter all your survivors to the winds.5 11 Therefore as surely as I live,6 declares the Sovereign7 LORD, because you have defiled my sanctuary8 with all your vile images9 and detestable practices,10 I myself will withdraw my favor; I will not look on you with pity or spare you.11 12 A third of your people will die of the plague or perish by famine inside you; a third will fall by the sword outside your walls; and a third I will scatter to the winds12 and pursue with drawn sword.13 13 "Then my anger will cease and my wrath14 against them will subside, and I will be avenged.15 And when I have spent my wrath upon them, they will know that I the LORD have spoken in my zeal.16 14 "I will make you a ruin and a reproach among the nations around you, in the sight of all who pass by.17 15 You will be a reproach18 and a taunt, a warning19 and an object of horror to the nations around you when I inflict punishment on you in anger and in wrath and with stinging rebuke.20 I the LORD have spoken.21 16 When I shoot at you with my deadly and destructive arrows of famine, I will shoot to destroy you. I will bring more and more famine upon you and cut off your supply of food.22 17 I will send famine and wild beasts23 against you, and they will leave you childless. Plague and bloodshed24 will sweep through you, and I will bring the sword against you. I the LORD have spoken.25"
