Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying: 1 The word of the LORD came to me:
2 `Son of man, set thy face unto mountains of Israel, and prophesy concerning them: 2 "Son of man, set your face against the mountains of Israel; prophesy against them
3 And thou hast said: Mountains of Israel, Hear ye a word of the Lord Jehovah: Thus said the Lord Jehovah To the mountains, and to the hills, To the streams, and to the valleys, Lo, I, I am bringing in against you a sword, And I have destroyed 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 And desolated have been your altars, And broken your images, And I have caused your wounded to fall 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 put the carcases of the sons of Israel before their idols, And scattered your bones round about 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 dwellings the cities are laid waste, And the high places are desolate, So that waste and desolate are your altars, And broken and ceased have your idols, And cut down have been your images, And blotted out have been your works. 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.
