4 I will stretch out my hand against Yehudah, and against all the inhabitants of Yerushalayim. I will cut off the remnant of Ba`al from this place: the name of the idolatrous and pagan Kohanim,
5 those who worship the host of the sky on the housetops, those who worship and swear by the LORD and also swear by Malkam,
6 those who have turned back from following the LORD, and those who haven't sought the LORD nor inquired after him.
7 Be silent at the presence of the Lord GOD, for the day of the LORD is at hand. For the LORD has prepared a sacrifice. He has consecrated his guests.
8 It will happen in the day of the LORD's sacrifice, that I will punish the princes, the king's sons, and all those who as are clothed with foreign clothing.
9 In that day, I will punish all those who leap over the threshold, who fill their master's house with violence and deceit.
