Bible in Basic English (BBE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And the word of the Lord came to me, saying, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Son of man, let your face be turned to the mountains of Israel, and be a prophet to them, and say, 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 You mountains of Israel, give ear to the words of the Lord: this is what the Lord has said to the mountains and the hills, to the waterways and the valleys: See, I, even I, am sending on you a sword for the destruction of 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 And your altars will be made waste, and your sun-images will be broken: and I will have your dead men placed before your images. 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 And I will put the dead bodies of the children of Israel in front of their images, sending your bones in all directions about 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 In all your living-places the towns will become broken walls, and the high places made waste; so that your altars may be broken down and made waste, and your images broken and ended, and so that your sun-images may be cut down and your works rubbed 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.
