1 The word of the Lord came to me: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Son of man, turn your face toward the mountains of Israel and prophesy against them. 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 You are to say: Mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God ! This is what the Lord God says to the mountains and the hills, to the ravines and the valleys: I am about to bring a sword against you, and I will destroy your high places. 3 and say: 'O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Sovereign LORD. This is what the Sovereign LORD says to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and valleys: I am about to bring a sword against you, and I will destroy your high places.
4 Your altars will be desolated and your incense altars smashed. I will throw down your slain in front of your idols. 4 Your altars will be demolished and your incense altars will be smashed; and I will slay your people in front of your idols.
5 I will lay the corpses of the Israelites in front of their idols and scatter your bones around your altars. 5 I will lay the dead bodies of the Israelites in front of their idols, and I will scatter your bones around your altars.
6 Wherever you live the cities will be in ruins and the high places will be desolate, so that your altars will lie in ruins and be desecrated, your idols smashed and obliterated, your incense altars cut down, and your works wiped out. 6 Wherever you live, the towns will be laid waste and the high places demolished, so that your altars will be laid waste and devastated, your idols smashed and ruined, your incense altars broken down, and what you have made wiped out.
7 The slain will fall among you, and you will know that I am the Lord. 7 Your people will fall slain among you, and you will know that I am the LORD.
8 "Yet I will leave a remnant when you are scattered among the nations, for throughout the countries there will be some of you who will escape the sword. 8 " 'But I will spare some, for some of you will escape the sword when you are scattered among the lands and nations.
9 Then your survivors will remember Me among the nations where they are taken captive, how I was crushed by their promiscuous hearts that turned away from Me and by their eyes that lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves because of the evil things they did, their abominations of every kind. 9 Then in the nations where they have been carried captive, those who escape will remember me--how I have been grieved by their adulterous hearts, which have turned away from me, and by their eyes, which have lusted after their idols. They will loathe themselves for the evil they have done and for all their detestable practices.
10 And they will know that I am the Lord; I did not threaten to bring this disaster on them without a reason. 10 And they will know that I am the LORD; I did not threaten in vain to bring this calamity on them.
