Therefore I will turn these into an unclean thing for them.

27 'The king will mourn, the prince will be clothed with horror, and the hands of the people of the land will tremble. According to their conduct I will deal with them, and by their judgments I will judge them. And they will know that I am the LORD .'

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."
