Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
4 "I will stretch out my hand against Judah, and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem; and I will cut off from this place the remnant of Ba'al and the name of the idolatrous priests; 4 "I will stretch out my hand against Judah and against all who live in Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal, the names of the pagan and the idolatrous priests--
5 those who bow down on the roofs to the host of the heavens; those who bow down and swear to the LORD and yet swear by Milcom; 5 those who bow down on the roofs to worship the starry host, those who bow down and swear by the LORD and who also swear by Molech,
6 those who have turned back from following the LORD, who do not seek the LORD or inquire of him." 6 those who turn back from following the LORD and neither seek the LORD nor inquire of him.
7 Be silent before the Lord GOD! For the day of the LORD is at hand; the LORD has prepared a sacrifice and consecrated his guests. 7 Be silent before the Sovereign LORD, for the day of the LORD is near. The LORD has prepared a sacrifice; he has consecrated those he has invited.
8 And on the day of the LORD'S Sacrifice--"i will punish the officials and the king's sons and all who array themselves in foreign attire. 8 On the day of the LORD's sacrifice I will punish the princes and the king's sons and all those clad in foreign clothes.
9 On that day I will punish every one who leaps over the threshold, and those who fill their master's house with violence and fraud." 9 On that day I will punish all who avoid stepping on the threshold, who fill the temple of their gods with violence and deceit.
