Against Judah

4 "I will stretch out my hand1 against Judah and against all who live in Jerusalem. I will cut off from this place every remnant of Baal,2 the names of the pagan and the idolatrous priests3-- 5 those who bow down on the roofs to worship the starry host,4 those who bow down and swear by the LORD and who also swear by Molech,a5 6 those who turn back from following6 the LORD and neither seek7 the LORD nor inquire8 of him. 7 Be silent9 before the Sovereign LORD, for the day of the LORD 10 is near. The LORD has prepared a sacrifice;11 he has consecrated those he has invited. 8 On the day of the LORD's sacrifice I will punish12 the princes and the king's sons13 and all those clad in foreign clothes. 9 On that day I will punish all who avoid stepping on the threshold,b14 who fill the temple of their gods with violence and deceit.15
