Ezekiel 14:6-16 (New American Standard)

View In My Bible
6 "Therefore say to the house of Israel, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "1Repent and turn away from your idols and turn your faces away from all your 2abominations. 7 "For anyone of the house of Israel or of the 3immigrants who stay in Israel who separates himself from Me, sets up his idols in his heart, puts right before his face the stumbling block of his iniquity, and then comes to the prophet to inquire of Me for himself, 4I the LORD will be brought to answer him in My own person. 8 "I will 5set My face against that man and make him a 6sign and aa proverb, and I will cut him off from among My people. So you will know that I am the LORD. 9 "But if the prophet is bprevailed upon to speak a word, it is I, the LORD, who have cprevailed upon that prophet, and I will stretch out My hand against him and 7destroy him from among My people Israel. 10 "They will bear the punishment of their iniquity; as the iniquity of the inquirer is, so the iniquity of the prophet will be, 11 in order that the house of Israel may no longer 8stray from Me and no longer 9defile themselves with all their transgressions. Thus they will be 10My people, and I shall be their God,"' declares the Lord GOD."

The City Will Not Be Spared

12 Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, 13 "Son of man, if a country sins against Me by 11committing unfaithfulness, and I stretch out My hand against it, ddestroy its 12supply of bread, send famine against it and cut off from it both man and beast, 14 even 13though these three men, 14Noah, 15Daniel and 16Job were in its midst, by their own righteousness they could only deliver 17themselves," declares the Lord GOD. 15 "If I were to cause 18wild beasts to pass through the land and they edepopulated it, and it became desolate so that no one would pass through it because of the beasts, 16 though these three men were in its midst, as I live," declares the Lord GOD, "they could not deliver either their sons or their daughters. 19They alone would be delivered, but the country would be desolate.
