Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the word of Yahweh {came} to me, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "And you, son of man, thus says the Lord Yahweh to the land of Israel: '[The] end comes, the end on the four corners of the land. 2 "Son of man, this is what the Sovereign LORD says to the land of Israel: The end! The end has come upon the four corners of the land.
3 Now the end [is] on you, and I will send my anger on you, and I will judge you according to your ways, and I will bring on you all your detestable things. 3 The end is now upon you and I will unleash my anger against you. I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices.
4 And my eye will not take pity on you, and I will not show compassion for your ways; on you I will bring your detestable things; they will be in the midst of you, and you will know that I [am] Yahweh.' 4 I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will surely repay you for your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
5 Thus says the Lord Yahweh: 'Look! Disaster after disaster [is] coming! 5 "This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Disaster! An unheard-of disaster is coming.
6 [The] end comes, comes the end! It has awakened against you! Look! [It] comes! 6 The end has come! The end has come! It has roused itself against you. It has come!
7 Doom is coming against you, the dweller of the land; the time comes, the day [is] near, panic and not joy [is] on the mountains. 7 Doom has come upon you--you who dwell in the land. The time has come, the day is near; there is panic, not joy, upon the mountains.
8 {Soon} I will pour out my rage on you, and I will fully vent my anger on you, and I will judge you according to your ways, and I will bring on you all of your detestable things. 8 I am about to pour out my wrath on you and spend my anger against you; I will judge you according to your conduct and repay you for all your detestable practices.
9 And my eye will not take pity, and I will not show compassion. According to your ways I will {deal with you}, and your detestable things will be in the midst of you, and you will know that I [am] Yahweh [who] strikes. 9 I will not look on you with pity or spare you; I will repay you in accordance with your conduct and the detestable practices among you. Then you will know that it is I the LORD who strikes the blow.
10 Look! The day is coming; doom goes out, the staff blossoms, pride sprouts. 10 "The day is here! It has come! Doom has burst forth, the rod has budded, arrogance has blossomed!
11 Violence has grown to [become] a staff of wickedness; {none} from them [will remain], and {none} from their abundance nor from their wealth; and prominence [will] not [be] among them. 11 Violence has grown into a rod to punish wickedness; none of the people will be left, none of that crowd--no wealth, nothing of value.
12 The time has come, the day has arrived; let not the buyer rejoice, and let the seller not mourn, for anger [is] on all their multitude. 12 The time has come, the day has arrived. Let not the buyer rejoice nor the seller grieve, for wrath is upon the whole crowd.
13 For the seller will not return to the merchandise {while they are still alive}, for the vision [is] about all of its multitude; it will not change, and a man because of his guilt will not be able to hold onto his life. 13 The seller will not recover the land he has sold as long as both of them live, for the vision concerning the whole crowd will not be reversed. Because of their sins, not one of them will preserve his life.
14 They shall blow on the trumpet and prepare {everything}, but [there is] no [one] going to the battle, for my anger [is] on all of their multitude. 14 Though they blow the trumpet and get everything ready, no one will go into battle, for my wrath is upon the whole crowd.
15 The sword {is outside}, and the plague and the famine {are inside}; [the one] who [is] in the field will die by the sword, and [the one] who [is] in the city, famine and plague will devour him. 15 "Outside is the sword, inside are plague and famine; those in the country will die by the sword, and those in the city will be devoured by famine and plague.
16 And [if] their survivors will escape, they will be on the mountains, like the doves of the valley, all of them groaning, each because of his guilt. 16 All who survive and escape will be in the mountains, moaning like doves of the valleys, each because of his sins.
17 All of the hands will hang limp, and all of {the knees will be wet with urine}. 17 Every hand will go limp, and every knee will become as weak as water.
18 And they will wear sackcloth, and horror will cover them, and on all of [the] faces [will be] shame, and baldness on all of their heads. 18 They will put on sackcloth and be clothed with terror. Their faces will be covered with shame and their heads will be shaved.
19 Their silver they will discard on the streets, and filth will be their gold; their silver and their gold will not be able to rescue them on the day of the wrath of Yahweh. They will not satisfy their {hunger} and their stomachs they will not fill, for their guilt will be their stumbling block. 19 They will throw their silver into the streets, and their gold will be an unclean thing. Their silver and gold will not be able to save them in the day of the LORD's wrath. They will not satisfy their hunger or fill their stomachs with it, for it has made them stumble into sin.
20 " 'And the beauty of its ornament {he made into a prideful thing} and made with it their detestable things and their vile idols; therefore I will make it into an impure thing for them. 20 They were proud of their beautiful jewelry and used it to make their detestable idols and vile images. Therefore I will turn these into an unclean thing for them.
21 And I will give it into the hand of strangers as plunder and to the wicked people of the earth as spoil, and they will defile it. 21 I will hand it all over as plunder to foreigners and as loot to the wicked of the earth, and they will defile it.
22 And I will turn my face from them, and they will defile my treasured [place], and violent ones will enter and defile it. 22 I will turn my face away from them, and they will desecrate my treasured place; robbers will enter it and desecrate it.
23 Make a chain for the land; it is full of {bloody crimes} and the city is full of violence. 23 "Prepare chains, because the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of violence.
24 And I will bring [the] worst of [the] nations, and they will take possession of their houses, and I will put to an end [the] pride of [the] mighty ones, and their sanctuaries will be defiled. 24 I will bring the most wicked of the nations to take possession of their houses; I will put an end to the pride of the mighty, and their sanctuaries will be desecrated.
25 Anguish comes, and they will seek peace, and [there will be] none. 25 When terror comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.
26 Calamity upon calamity will come, and rumor will be upon rumor. And they will seek a vision from a prophet, but instruction will perish from [the] priest and counsel from [the] elders. 26 Calamity upon calamity will come, and rumor upon rumor. They will try to get a vision from the prophet; the teaching of the law by the priest will be lost, as will the counsel of the elders.
27 The king will mourn, and [the] prince will be dressed with despair, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. According to their way I will do to them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they will know that I [am] Yahweh.'" 27 The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with despair, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. I will deal with them according to their conduct, and by their own standards I will judge them. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
