Jerusalem's Desolation Foretold

1 "As for you, son of man, take a 1sharp sword; take and ause it as a barber's razor on your head and beard. Then take 2scales for weighing and divide bthe hair. 2 "One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the 3days of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around cthe city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will 4unsheathe a sword behind them. 3 "Take also a few in number from dthem and bind them in the edges of your robes. 4 "Take again some of them and throw them into the fire and burn them in the fire; from it a fire will espread to all the house of Israel. 5 "Thus says the Lord fGOD, 'This is 5Jerusalem; I have set her at the 6center of the nations, with lands around her. 6 'But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes 7more than the lands which surround her; for they have 8rejected My ordinances and have not walked gin My statutes.'
