1 6 And the word of Jehovah was to me, saying,

2 7 Son of man, set thy face toward Jerusalem, and cause thy word to drop·​·down toward the sanctuaries, and prophesy to the ground of Israel,

3 8 and say to the ground of Israel, Thus says Jehovah; Behold, I am against thee, and will bring·​·out My sword from its sheath, and will cut·​·off from thee the just and the wicked.

4 9 Because I will cut·​·off from thee the just and the wicked, therefore shall My sword go·​·out from its sheath to all flesh from south to north.

5 10 And all flesh shall know that I, Jehovah, have brought·​·out My sword from its sheath; it shall not return any·​·more.

6 11 And sigh, thou son of man, with the breaking of thy loins; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.

7 12 And it shall be, that they shall say to thee, Over what dost thou sigh? And thou shalt say, For the report, that it comes; and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be·​·slack, and every spirit shall be·​·dim, and all knees shall go as water: behold, it comes, and shall be, says the Lord Jehovih*.

8 13 And the word of Jehovah was unto me, saying,

9 14 Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says Jehovah: say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also is·​·furbished;

10 15 so·​·that it is sharpened to butcher a butchering; so·​·that it is furbished so·​·that it may have lightning; or we have·​·joy in the scepter of My son, rejecting every tree.

11 16 And He has given it to be·​·furbished, to lay·​·hold of in the palm of the hand; this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the killer.

12 17 Cry and howl, son of man; for it shall be upon My people, it shall be upon all the chiefs of Israel: hurlings to the sword shall be with My people; slap therefore upon the thigh.

13 18 For it is a test; and what if the sword reject even the scepter? It shall not be, says the Lord Jehovih.

14 19 And thou, son of man, prophesy, and smite palm to palm*, and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain; it is the sword of the great who are slain, penetrating* to them in their chambers.

15 20 In·​·order·​·to dissolve the heart and to multiply the stumblingblocks, against all their gates I have given the point of the sword. Ah, it is made into lightning, sharpened for the butchering!

16 21 Unite thyself to turn·​·right; set thyself to turn·​·left, wherever thy faces congregate.

17 22 And even I will smite My palm to my palm, and I will cause My fury to rest; I, Jehovah, have spoken.

18 23 And the word of Jehovah was unto me, saying,

19 24 And thou son of man, set for thee two ways for the sword of the king of Babylon to come; from one land shall the two of them go·​·out: and cut·​·down a space, at the head of the way of the city, cut· it ·down.

20 25 Thou shalt set a way for the sword to come to Rabbath of the sons of Ammon, and to Judah into Jerusalem the fortified.

21 26 For the king of Babylon stood at the parting* of the way, at the head of the two ways, to divine with divination; he was·​·swift with his arrows, asking of the teraphim, he saw into the liver.

22 27 At his right·​·hand was the divination for Jerusalem, to set rams, to open the mouth with murder, to lift·​·up the voice with shouting, to set rams against the gates, to pour·​·out an embankment, to build a ramp.

23 28 And it shall be to them as vain divining in their eyes of those who have promised promises to them; but He will bring·​·to·​·remembrance the iniquity of those who are caught.

24 29 Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovih: Because you have caused your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are revealed, so that in all your actions your sins are seen; because, I say, that you are remembered, you shall be caught in the palm of the hand.

25 30 And thou, the slain wicked one, the chief of Israel, whose day has come, in the time of iniquity it is the end.

26 31 Thus says the Lord Jehovih, Remove the miter, and lift·​·up the crown; this shall not be this; the low shall be made·​·lofty, and the lofty shall be made·​·low.

27 32 Upside·​·down, upside·​·down, upside·​·down, I will set it; even this shall not be, until He come who has the judgment; and I will give it.

28 33 And thou, son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord Jehovih to the sons of Ammon, and to their reproach; and say, The sword, the sword is exposed, it is·​·furbished for the butchering, to eat·​·up for the sake of the lightning;

29 34 when they behold vanity for thee, when they divine a lie unto thee, to put thee upon the necks of the slain, of the wicked, whose day is come; in the time of their iniquity it is the end.

30 35 Shall I cause it to return into its sheath? I will judge thee in the place where thou wast created, in the land of thy negotiations.

31 36 And I will spill·​·out My indignation upon thee, I will puff against thee in the fire of My wrath, and give thee into the hand of burning men, craftsmen of corruption.

32 37 Thou shalt be for food for the fire; thy blood shall be in the midst of the land; thou shalt not be remembered; for I, Jehovah, have spoken.
