Ezekiel 7:18-27 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
18 They will put on sackcloth1 and be clothed with terror.2 Their faces will be covered with shame and their heads will be shaved.3 19 They will throw their silver into the streets,4 and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD's wrath.5 They will not satisfy6 their hunger or fill their stomachs with it, for it has made them stumble7 into sin.8 20 They were proud of their beautiful jewelry and used it to make9 their detestable idols and vile images.10 Therefore I will turn these into an unclean thing for them.11 21 I will hand it all over as plunder12 to foreigners and as loot to the wicked of the earth, and they will defile it.13 22 I will turn my face14 away from them, and they will desecrate my treasured place; robbers will enter it and desecrate it.15 23 "Prepare chains, because the land is full of bloodshed16 and the city is full of violence.17 24 I will bring the most wicked of the nations to take possession of their houses; I will put an end to the pride of the mighty, and their sanctuaries18 will be desecrated.19 25 When terror comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.20 26 Calamity upon calamity21 will come, and rumor upon rumor. They will try to get a vision from the prophet;22 the teaching of the law by the priest will be lost, as will the counsel of the elders.23 27 The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with despair,24 and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. I will deal with them according to their conduct,25 and by their own standards I will judge them. Then they will know that I am the LORD.26"
