Good News Translation (GNT) New International Version (NIV)
1 The Lord spoke to me. 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Mortal man," he said, "look toward the mountains of Israel and give them my message. 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 Tell the mountains of Israel to hear the Sovereign Lord's word - to hear what I, the Sovereign Lord, am telling the mountains, the hills, the gorges, and the valleys: I will send a sword to destroy the places where people worship idols. 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 The altars will be torn down and the incense altars broken. All the people there will be killed in front of their 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 scatter the corpses of the people of Israel; I will scatter their bones all around the 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 All the cities of Israel will be destroyed, so that all their altars and their idols will be smashed to pieces, their incense altars will be shattered, and everything they made will disappear. 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.
