Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD's word came to me: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 Human one, face Israel's mountains, and prophesy to them. 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 Say: Hear the LORD God's word, mountains of Israel! The LORD God proclaims to the mountains and hills, to the valleys and their deepest ravines: I'm about to bring a sword against you and destroy your shrines. 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 destroyed, your incense altars broken. And I'll make your slain fall 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'll throw the Israelites' corpses in front of their idols, and I'll scatter your bones all 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, cities will be in ruins, shrines made desolate, turned into utter ruin. Your altars will be punished and then broken down. Your idols will be demolished, your incense altars shattered, and all 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.
