5 Then the Spirit of the LORD came on me, and he told me to say: “This is what the LORD says: That is what you are saying, you leaders in Israel, but I know what is going through your mind.
6 You have killed many people in this city and filled its streets with the dead.
7 “Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: The bodies you have thrown there are the meat and this city is the pot, but I will drive you out of it.
8 You fear the sword, and the sword is what I will bring against you, declares the Sovereign LORD.
9 I will drive you out of the city and deliver you into the hands of foreigners and inflict punishment on you.
10 You will fall by the sword, and I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
11 This city will not be a pot 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, for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you.”
