New International Reader's Version (NIRV) New International Version (NIV)
1 A message came to me from the Lord. He said, 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Son of man, turn your attention to the mountains of Israel. Prophesy against them. 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 Say, 'Mountains of Israel, listen to the message of the LORD and King. Here is what he says to the mountains and hills. And here is what he says to the canyons and valleys. He tells them, "I will send swords to kill your people. I will destroy the high places where you worship other gods. 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 torn down. Your incense altars will be smashed. And I will kill your people in front of the statues of your gods. 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 put the dead bodies of Israelites in front of those statues. I will 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 " ' "No matter where you live, the towns will be destroyed. The high places will be torn down. So your altars will be completely destroyed. The statues of your gods will be smashed to pieces. Your incense altars will be broken down. And everything you have made will be 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.
