Punishment for Wickedness Foretold

1 Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me saying, 2 "And you, son of man, thus says the Lord aGOD to the land of Israel, 'An 1end ! The end is coming on the four corners of the land. 3 'Now the end is upon you, and I will send My anger against you; I will judge you according to your ways and bring all your abominations upon you. 4 'For My eye will have no pity on you, nor will I spare you, but I will 2bring your ways upon you, and your abominations will be among you; then you will 3know that I am the LORD !' 5 "Thus says the Lord bGOD, 'A 4disaster, unique disaster, behold it is coming ! 6 'An end is coming ; the end has come ! It has 5awakened against you; behold, it has come ! 7 'Your doom has come to you, O inhabitant of the land. The 6time has come, the 7day is near -tumult rather than joyful shouting on the mountains. 8 'Now I will shortly 8pour out My wrath on you and spend My anger against you; 9judge you according to your ways and bring on you all your abominations. 9 'My eye will show no pity nor will I spare. I will crepay you according to your ways, while your abominations are in your midst ; then you will know that I, the LORD, do the smiting. 10 'Behold, the day ! Behold, it is coming ! Your doom has gone forth ; the 10rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed. 11 'Violence dhas grown into a rod of 11wickedness. None of them shall remain, none of their people, none of their 12wealth, nor anything eminent among them. 12 'The 13time has come, the day has arrived. Let not the 14buyer rejoice nor the seller mourn ; for 15wrath is against all their multitude. 13 'Indeed, the seller will not e16regain fwhat he sold as long as gthey both live ; for the vision regarding all their multitude will not hbe averted, nor will any of them maintain his life by his iniquity. 14 'They have 17blown the trumpet and made everything ready, but no one is going to the battle, for My wrath is against all itheir multitude. 15 'The 18sword is outside and the plague and the famine are within. He who is in the field will die by the sword ; famine and the plague will also consume those in the city. 16 'Even when their survivors 19escape, they will be on the mountains like 20doves of the valleys, all of them j21mourning, each over his own iniquity. 17 'All 22hands will hang limp and all knees will kbecome like water. 18 'They will 23gird themselves with sackcloth and 24shuddering will overwhelm them; and shame will be on all faces and 25baldness on all their heads. 19 'They will 26fling their silver into the streets and their gold will become an abhorrent thing ; their 27silver and their gold will not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They cannot satisfy their lappetite nor can they fill their stomachs, for their iniquity has become an occasion of stumbling.
