Abominations in the Temple and in Jerusalem

1 {And then}a in the sixth year, in the sixth [month], on the fifth [day] of the month, I [was] sitting in my house, and the elders of Judah [were] sitting {before me}.b And the hand of the Lord Yahweh fell on me there, 2 and I saw,c and look! A figure like [the] appearance of a man;d from the appearance of his waist and below [was] fire, and from his waist and {upward}e [was] like [the] appearance of brightness,f like the {outward appearance of}g amber. 3 And he sent out [the] form of a hand, and he took me by a lock of hair of my head, and [the] Spirit lifted me between earth and heaven, and it brought me to Jerusalem in visions of God to the doorway of [the] inner gate {that faced north},h [at] which there [was] the seat of the image of jealousy, which was making jealous. 4 And look! There [was] the glory of the God of Israel like the vision that I saw in the valley. 5 And he said to me, "Son of man,i lift up nowj your eyes {toward the north}."k And I lifted up my eyes {toward the north},l and, look, [there was] to the north of the gate of the altar this image of jealousy at the entrance. 6 And he said to me, "Son of man,m "{Do you see}n what they [are] doing--great detestable things that the house of Israel [is] committingo here [so as] to drive [me] fromp my sanctuary, and yet {you will see again}q greaterr detestable things."
