Then this message came to me from the LORD:
"Son of man, this is what the Sovereign LORD says to Israel: The end is here! Wherever you look -- east, west, north, or south -- your land is finished.
No hope remains, for I will unleash my anger against you. I will call you to account for all your disgusting behavior.
I will turn my eyes away and show no pity, repaying you in full for all your evil. Then you will know that I am the LORD!"
"This is what the Sovereign LORD says: With one blow after another I will bring total disaster!
The end has come! It has finally arrived! Your final doom is waiting!
O people of Israel, the day of your destruction is dawning. The time has come; the day of trouble is near. It will ring with shouts of anguish, not shouts of joy.
