Ezekiel 12:12-22

12 The prince who is ruling them will shoulder his pack in the dark and escape through a hole that they dig for him in the wall. He will cover his eyes and not see where he is going.
13 But I will spread out my net and trap him in it. Then I will take him to the city of Babylon, where he will die without having seen it. 1
14 I will scatter in every direction all the members of his court and his advisers and bodyguards, and people will search for them to kill them.
15 "When I scatter them among the other nations and in foreign countries, they will know that I am the Lord.
16 I will let a few of them survive the war, the famine, and the diseases, so that there among the nations they will realize how disgusting their actions have been and will acknowledge that I am the Lord."
17 The Lord spoke to me.
18 "Mortal man," he said, "tremble when you eat, and shake with fear when you drink.
19 Tell the whole nation that this is the message of the Sovereign Lord to the people of Jerusalem who are still living in their land: They will tremble when they eat and shake with fear when they drink. Their land will be stripped bare, because everyone who lives there is lawless.
20 Cities that are now full of people will be destroyed, and the country will be made a wilderness. Then they will know that I am the Lord."
21 The Lord spoke to me.
22 "Mortal man," he said, "why do the people of Israel repeat this proverb: "Time goes by, and predictions come to nothing'?
