Common English Bible w/ Apocrypha (CEBA) New International Version (NIV)
12 Because of this, the LORD, Israel's God, has said: I'm about to bring on Jerusalem and Judah such a great disaster that the ears of anyone who hears about it will ring. 12 Therefore this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: I am going to bring such disaster on Jerusalem and Judah that the ears of everyone who hears of it will tingle.
13 I will stretch out over Jerusalem the same line that I used to measured Samaria and the same mason's level that I used on Ahab's family. I will wipe Jerusalem clean the same way someone wipes a plate clean, wiping it clean then turning it facedown. 13 I will stretch out over Jerusalem the measuring line used against Samaria and the plumb line used against the house of Ahab. I will wipe out Jerusalem as one wipes a dish, wiping it and turning it upside down.
14 Whatever survives of my inheritance, I'll leave behind, handing them over to their enemies. They will be nothing but plunder and loot for every one of their enemies. 14 I will forsake the remnant of my inheritance and hand them over to their enemies. They will be looted and plundered by all their foes,
15 This will happen because they have done what is evil in my eyes, making me angry from the day their ancestors left Egypt until this very moment. 15 because they have done evil in my eyes and have provoked me to anger from the day their forefathers came out of Egypt until this day."
