Ezekiel 11:3-13 (GOD'S WORD Translation)

View In My Bible
3 They say, 'It's almost time to rebuild homes. This city is a cooking pot, and we're the meat.' 4 So prophesy against them. Prophesy, son of man." 5 The LORD's Spirit came to me and told me to say, "This is what the LORD says: You are saying these things, nation of Israel. But I know what's going through your mind. 6 You have killed many people in this city and have filled its streets with corpses. 7 "So this is what the Almighty LORD says: The corpses that you put in the middle of the city are the meat, and the city is the cooking pot. I will force you out of the city. 8 You are afraid of swords, so I will bring swords to attack you, declares the Almighty LORD. 9 I will force you out of the city. I will hand you over to foreigners, and I will punish you. 10 You will die in battle. I will judge you at Israel's borders. Then you will know that I am the LORD. 11 The city will not be your cooking pot, and you will not be the meat in it. I will judge you at Israel's borders. 12 Then you will know that I am the LORD. You haven't lived by my laws, and you haven't obeyed my rules. You have followed the standards set by the nations around you." 13 While I was prophesying, Benaiah's son Pelatiah died. I immediately bowed down and cried out, "Almighty LORD, will you completely destroy all the remaining people in Israel?"
