New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Now the word of the Lord came to me, saying: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Son of man, set your face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them, 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 and say, 'O mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God!' Thus says the Lord God to the mountains, to the hills, to the ravines, and to the valleys: "Indeed I, even I, will bring a sword against you, and I will destroy 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 Then your altars shall be desolate, your incense altars shall be broken, and I will cast down your slain men before 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 And I will lay the corpses of the children of Israel before their idols, and I will 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 In all your dwelling places the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate, so that your altars may be laid waste and made desolate, your idols may be broken and made to cease, your incense altars may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. 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.
