(the name of the city is Hamonah). So they will purify the land.
And you, human one, the LORD God proclaims: Say to the birds of prey, to every kind of bird and every wild animal: Assemble and come! Come together from all around for the sacrifice that I make for you, a great sacrifice on Israel's mountains! You will eat flesh and drink blood.
You will eat the flesh of warriors and drink the blood of the princes of the earth: rams, lambs, goats, bulls, all fattened animals from Bashan.
Gorge yourselves on their fat, and get drunk on their blood, from the sacrifice that I have made for you.
Satisfy yourselves at my table with horses and riders, mighty men and every warrior. This is what the LORD God says!
When I glorify myself among the nations, all the nations will understand the judgments that I executed and the power that I used among them.
And the house of Israel will know that I, the LORD, am their God, from that day on.
The nations will know that the house of Israel went into exile because of their guilt. Because they rebelled against me, I hid my face from them. When I handed them over to their enemies, all of them fell by the sword.
I dealt with them according to their uncleanness and their transgressions and hid my face from them.
So the LORD God proclaims: Now I will bring back the captives of Jacob. I will have compassion on the whole house of Israel and defend my holy name.
They will forget their humiliation and all their rebellions against me when they live securely on their fertile land with no one to frighten them.
