In you men uncover their fathers' nakedness; in you they humble women who are unclean in their impurity.
One commits abomination with his neighbor's wife; another lewdly defiles his daughter-in-law; another in you defiles his sister, his father's daughter.
In you men take bribes to shed blood; you take interest and increase and make gain of your neighbors by extortion; and you have forgotten me, says the Lord GOD.
"Behold, therefore, I strike my hands together at the dishonest gain which you have made, and at the blood which has been in the midst of you.
Can your courage endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with you? I the LORD have spoken, and I will do it.
I will scatter you among the nations and disperse you through the countries, and I will consume your filthiness out of you.
And I shall be profaned through you in the sight of the nations; and you shall know that I am the LORD."
And the word of the LORD came to me:
"Son of man, the house of Israel has become dross to me; all of them, silver and bronze and tin and iron and lead in the furnace, have become dross.
Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Because you have all become dross, therefore, behold, I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
As men gather silver and bronze and iron and lead and tin into a furnace, to blow the fire upon it in order to melt it; so I will gather you in my anger and in my wrath, and I will put you in and melt you.
