Lexham English Bible (LEB) New International Version (NIV)
20 " 'And the beauty of its ornament {he made into a prideful thing} and made with it their detestable things and their vile idols; therefore I will make it into an impure thing for them. 20 They were proud of their beautiful jewelry and used it to make their detestable idols and vile images. Therefore I will turn these into an unclean thing for them.
21 And I will give it into the hand of strangers as plunder and to the wicked people of the earth as spoil, and they will defile it. 21 I will hand it all over as plunder to foreigners and as loot to the wicked of the earth, and they will defile it.
22 And I will turn my face from them, and they will defile my treasured [place], and violent ones will enter and defile it. 22 I will turn my face away from them, and they will desecrate my treasured place; robbers will enter it and desecrate it.
23 Make a chain for the land; it is full of {bloody crimes} and the city is full of violence. 23 "Prepare chains, because the land is full of bloodshed and the city is full of violence.
24 And I will bring [the] worst of [the] nations, and they will take possession of their houses, and I will put to an end [the] pride of [the] mighty ones, and their sanctuaries will be defiled. 24 I will bring the most wicked of the nations to take possession of their houses; I will put an end to the pride of the mighty, and their sanctuaries will be desecrated.
25 Anguish comes, and they will seek peace, and [there will be] none. 25 When terror comes, they will seek peace, but there will be none.
26 Calamity upon calamity will come, and rumor will be upon rumor. And they will seek a vision from a prophet, but instruction will perish from [the] priest and counsel from [the] elders. 26 Calamity upon calamity will come, and rumor upon rumor. They will try to get a vision from the prophet; the teaching of the law by the priest will be lost, as will the counsel of the elders.
27 The king will mourn, and [the] prince will be dressed with despair, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. According to their way I will do to them, and according to their judgments I will judge them, and they will know that I [am] Yahweh.'" 27 The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with despair, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. I will deal with them according to their conduct, and by their own standards I will judge them. Then they will know that I am the LORD."
