EZEK 22:1 Moreover the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
EZEK 22:2 You, son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? then cause her to know all her abominations.
EZEK 22:3 You shall say, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: A city that sheds blood in the midst of her, that her time may come, and that makes idols against herself to defile her!
EZEK 22:4 You have become guilty in your blood that you have shed, and are defiled in your idols which you have made; and you have caused your days to draw near, and are come even to your years: therefore have I made you a reproach to the nations, and a mocking to all the countries.
EZEK 22:5 Those who are near, and those who are far from you, shall mock you, you infamous one [and] full of tumult.
EZEK 22:6 Behold, the princes of Israel, everyone according to his power, have been in you to shed blood.
EZEK 22:7 In you have they set light by father and mother; in the midst of you have they dealt by oppression with the foreigner; in you have they wronged the fatherless and the widow.
EZEK 22:8 You have despised my holy things, and have profaned my Sabbaths.
EZEK 22:9 Slanderous men have been in you to shed blood; and in you they have eaten on the mountains: in the midst of you they have committed lewdness.
EZEK 22:10 In you have they uncovered their fathers' nakedness; in you have they humbled her who was unclean in her impurity.
EZEK 22:11 One has committed abomination with his neighbor's wife; and another has lewdly defiled his daughter-in-law; and another in you has humbled his sister, his father's daughter.
EZEK 22:12 In you have they taken bribes to shed blood; you have taken interest and increase, and you have greedily gained of your neighbors by oppression, and have forgotten me, says the Lord Yahweh.
EZEK 22:13 Behold, therefore, I have struck my hand at your dishonest gain which you have made, and at your blood which has been in the midst of you.
EZEK 22:14 Can your heart endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with you? I, Yahweh, have spoken it, and will do it.
EZEK 22:15 I will scatter you among the nations, and disperse you through the countries; and I will consume your filthiness out of you.
EZEK 22:16 You shall be profaned in yourself, in the sight of the nations; and you shall know that I am Yahweh.
EZEK 22:17 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
EZEK 22:18 Son of man, the house of Israel is become dross to me: all of them are brass and tin and iron and lead, in the midst of the furnace; they are the dross of silver.
EZEK 22:19 Therefore thus says the Lord Yahweh: Because you are all become dross, therefore, behold, I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem.
EZEK 22:20 As they gather silver and brass and iron and lead and tin into the midst of the furnace, to blow the fire on it, to melt it; so will I gather you in my anger and in my wrath, and I will lay you there, and melt you.
EZEK 22:21 Yes, I will gather you, and blow on you with the fire of my wrath, and you shall be melted in the midst of it.
EZEK 22:22 As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall you be melted in the midst of it; and you shall know that I, Yahweh, have poured out my wrath on you.
EZEK 22:23 The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
EZEK 22:24 Son of man, tell her, You are a land that is not cleansed, nor rained on in the day of indignation.
EZEK 22:25 There is a conspiracy of her prophets in the midst of it, like a roaring lion ravening the prey: they have devoured souls; they take treasure and precious things; they have made her widows many in the midst of it.
EZEK 22:26 Her priests have done violence to my law, and have profaned my holy things: they have made no distinction between the holy and the common, neither have they caused men to discern between the unclean and the clean, and have hid their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am profaned among them.
EZEK 22:27 Her princes in the midst of it are like wolves ravening the prey, to shed blood, [and] to destroy souls, that they may get dishonest gain.
EZEK 22:28 Her prophets have daubed for them with whitewash, seeing false visions, and divining lies to them, saying, Thus says the Lord Yahweh, when Yahweh has not spoken.
EZEK 22:29 The people of the land have used oppression, and exercised robbery; yes, they have vexed the poor and needy, and have oppressed the foreigner wrongfully.
EZEK 22:30 I sought for a man among them, who should build up the wall, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found none.
EZEK 22:31 Therefore have I poured out my indignation on them; I have consumed them with the fire of my wrath: their own way have I brought on their heads, says the Lord Yahweh.
