The Message (MSG) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the Word of God came to me: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Son of man, now turn and face the mountains of Israel and preach against them: 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 'O Mountains of Israel, listen to the Message of God, the Master. God, the Master, speaks to the mountains and hills, to the ravines and the valleys: I'm about to destroy your sacred god and goddess 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 I'll level your altars, bust up your sun-god pillars, and kill your people as they bow down to your no-god 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 stack the dead bodies of Israelites in front of your idols and then scatter your bones around your shrines. 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 Every place where you've lived, the towns will be torn down and the pagan shrines demolished - altars busted up, idols smashed, all your custom-made sun-god pillars in ruins. 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.
