4 "So I will 1stretch out My hand against Judah And against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem. And I will 2cut off the remnant of Baal from this place, And the names of the 3idolatrous priests along with the priests.
5 "And those who bow down on the 4housetops to the host of heaven, And those who bow down and 5swear to the LORD and yet swear by a6Milcom,
6 And those who have 7turned back from following the LORD, And those who have 8not sought the LORD or inquired of Him."
7 b9Be silent before * the Lord cGOD! For the 10day of the LORD is near, For the LORD has prepared a 11sacrifice, He has 12consecrated His guests.
8 "Then it will come about on the day of the LORD'S sacrifice That I will 13punish the princes, the king's sons And all who clothe themselves with 14foreign garments.
9 "And I will punish on that day all who leap on the temple threshold, Who fill the house of their dlord with 15violence and deceit.
