Judgment for the Profanation of the Temple and Sanctuary

20 " 'And the beauty of itsa ornament {he made into a prideful thing}b and made with it their detestable things and their vile idols; therefore I will make it into an impure thing for them. 21 And I will give it into the hand of strangers as plunder and to the wicked people of the earth as spoil, and they will defile it. 22 And I will turn my face from them, and they will defile my treasured [place], and violent ones will enter and defile it. 23 Make a chain for the land; it is full of {bloody crimes}c and the city is full of violence. 24 And I will bring [the] worst of [the] nations, and they will take possession of their houses, and I will put to an end [the] pride of [the] mighty ones, and their sanctuaries will be defiled. 25 Anguish comes, and they will seek peace, and [there will be] none. 26 Calamity upon calamity will come, and rumor will be upon rumor. And they will seek a vision from a prophet, but instruction will perish from [the] priest and counsel from [the] elders. 27 The king will mourn, and [the] prince will be dressed with despair, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. According to their way I will do tod them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they will know that I [am] Yahweh.'"
