Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
"And you, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? Then declare to her all her abominable deeds.
You shall say, Thus says the Lord GOD: A city that sheds blood in the midst of her, that her time may come, and that makes idols to defile herself!
You have become guilty by the blood which you have shed, and defiled by the idols which you have made; and you have brought your day near, the appointed time of your years has come. Therefore I have made you a reproach to the nations, and a mocking to all the countries.
Those who are near and those who are far from you will mock you, you infamous one, full of tumult.
"Behold, the princes of Israel in you, every one according to his power, have been bent on shedding blood.
