¶ Ezekiel 1 v1-3

{ heart }   [EK] 1v1

Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year,
in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month,

(As I was among the captives by the river of Chebar)
that the heavens were opened,
and I saw visions of GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v2

In the fifth day of the month,
(which was the fifth year of king Jehoiachin's captivity,)

{ heart }   [EK] 1v3

The word of the LORD came expressly unto Ezekiel
the priest, the son of Buzi,
in the land of the Chaldeans, by the river Chebar,
and the HAND of the LORD was there upon him.

¶ Ezekiel 1 v4-14

{ heart }   [EK] 1v4

And I looked, and behold,
a Whirlwind came out of the north,
a great Cloud, and a Fire enfolding Itself,
and a brightness was about It,
and out of the midst of It as the color of amber,
out of the midst of the Fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v5

Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness
of four Living Creatures,
and this was Their appearance:
They had the likeness of a man.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v6

And Every One had four faces,
and Every One had four wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v7

And Their feet were straight feet,
and the sole of Their feet
was like the sole of a calf's foot,
and They sparkled like the color of burnished brass.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v8

And They had the hands of a man
under Their wings on Their four sides,
and They four had Their faces and Their wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v9

Their wings were joined one to another,
They turned not when They went:
They went Every One straight forward.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v10

As for the likeness of Their faces,
They four had the face of a man,
and the face of a lion on the right side:
and They four had the face of an ox on the left side:
They four also had the face of an eagle.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v11

Thus were Their faces:
and Their wings were stretched upward,
two wings of Every One were joined one to another,
and two covered Their bodies.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v12

And They went Every One straight forward:
whither the SPIRIT was to go, They went:
and They turned not when They went.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v13

As for the likeness of the Living Creatures,
Their appearance was like burning coals of Fire,
and like the appearance of lamps:
It went up and down among the Living Creatures,
and the Fire was bright,
and out of the Fire went forth Lightning.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v14

And the Living Creatures ran, and returned
as the appearance of a flash of lightning.

¶ Ezekiel 1 v15-21

{ heart }   [EK] 1v15

Now as I beheld the Living Creatures:
behold one Wheel upon the earth
by the Living Creatures, with His four faces.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v16

The appearance of the Wheels, and Their work
was like unto the color of a beryl:
and They four had one likeness,
and Their appearance and Their work
was as it were a Wheel in the middle of a Wheel.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v17

When They went, They went upon Their four sides:
and They returned not when They went.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v18

As for Their rings, They were so high,
that They were dreadful,
and Their rings were full of eyes
round about Them four.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v19

And when the Living Creatures went,
the Wheels went by Them:
and when the Living Creatures were lift up
from the earth, the Wheels were lift up.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v20

Whithersoever the SPIRIT was to go, They went,
thither was Their SPIRIT to go,
and the Wheels were lifted up over against Them:
for the SPIRIT of the Living Creature
was in the Wheels.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v21

When Those went, These went,
and when Those stood, These stood:
and when Those were lifted up from the earth,
the Wheels were lifted up over against Them:
for the SPIRIT of the Living Creature
was in the Wheels.

¶ Ezekiel 1 v22-28

{ heart }   [EK] 1v22

And the likeness of the firmament
upon the heads of the Living Creature
was as the color of the terrible crystal,
stretched forth over Their heads above.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v23

And under the firmament were Their wings straight,
the one toward the other,
Every One had two which covered on this side,
and Every One had two,
which covered on that side Their bodies.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v24

And when They went, I heard the noise
of Their wings, like the noise of great waters,
as the voice of the ALMIGHTY,
the voice of speech, as the noise of an host:
when They stood, They let down Their wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v25

And there was a voice from the firmament,
that was over Their heads,
when They stood, and had let down Their wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v26

And above the firmament that was over Their heads,
was the likeness of a throne,
as the appearance of a sapphire stone,
and upon the likeness of the throne
was the likeness as the appearance of a MAN
above upon it.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v27

And I saw as the color of amber,
as the appearance of Fire round about within It:
from the appearance of HIS loins even upward,
and from the appearance of HIS loins even downward,
I saw as it were the appearance of Fire,
and It had brightness round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 1v28

As the appearance of the bow
that is in the cloud in the day of rain,
so was the appearance of the brightness round about.
This was the appearance of the likeness
of the Glory of the LORD:
and when I saw It, I fell upon my face,
and I heard a voice of ONE THAT spake.

» Ezekiel 2

¶ Ezekiel 2 v1-8

{ heart }   [EK] 2v1

And HE said unto me,

Son of man,
stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v2

And the SPIRIT entered into me
when HE spake unto me, and set me upon my feet,
that I heard HIM THAT spake unto me.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v3

And HE said unto me,

Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel,
to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against ME:
they and their fathers have transgressed
against ME, even unto this very day.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v4

For they are impudent children and stiffhearted:
I do send thee unto them,
and thou shalt say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v5

And they,
whether they will hear or whether they will forbear
(for they are a rebellious house) yet shall know

 ‘That there hath been a prophet among them’.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v6

And thou son of man, be not afraid of them,
neither be afraid of their words,
though briers and thorns be with thee,
and thou dost dwell among scorpions:
be not afraid of their words,
nor be dismayed at their looks,
though they be a rebellious house.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v7

And thou shalt speak MY words unto them,
whether they will hear or whether they will forbear,
for they are most rebellious.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v8

But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee;

 ‘Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house:
open thy mouth and eat that I give thee’.

¶ Ezekiel 2 v9-10

{ heart }   [EK] 2v9

And when I looked, behold, an HAND
was sent unto me, and lo, a roll of a book was therein.

{ heart }   [EK] 2v10

And HE spread it before me,
and it was written within and without,
and there was written therein
lamentations, and mourning, and woe.

» Ezekiel 3

¶ Ezekiel 3 v1-3

{ heart }   [EK] 3v1

Moreover HE said unto me,

Son of man, eat that thou findest: eat this roll, and go, speak unto the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v2

So I opened my mouth,
and HE caused me to eat that roll.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v3

And HE said unto me;

Son of man, cause thy belly to eat,
and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee.


Then did I eat it,
and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.

¶ Ezekiel 3 v4-11

{ heart }   [EK] 3v4

And HE said unto me,

Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel,
and speak with MY words unto them.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v5

For thou art not sent to a people
of a strange speech, and of an hard language,
but to the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v6

Not to many people of a strange speech
and of an hard language,
whose words thou canst not understand:
surely had I sent thee to them,
they would have hearkened unto thee:

{ heart }   [EK] 3v7

But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee;
for they will not hearken unto ME:
for all the house of Israel
are impudent and hard hearted.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v8

Behold, I have made thy face strong
against their faces,
and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v9

As an adamant harder than flint
have I made thy forehead:
fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks,
though they be a rebellious house.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v10

Moreover HE said unto me,

Son of man,
all MY words that I shall speak unto thee,
receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v11

And go, get thee to them of the captivity,
unto thy people, and speak unto them and tell them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear’.

¶ Ezekiel 3 v12-15

{ heart }   [EK] 3v12

Then the SPIRIT took me up,
and I heard behind me a Voice of a great rushing,
saying


Blessed be the GLORY of the LORD
from HIS place.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v13

I heard also the noise of the wings
of the Living Creatures
that touched one another,
and the Noise of the Wheels over against Them,
and a Noise of a great rushing.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v14

So the SPIRIT lifted me up, and took me away,
and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit,
but the HAND of the LORD was strong upon me.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v15

Then I came to them of the captivity at Tel-abib,
that dwelt by the river of Chebar,
and I sat where they sat,
and remained there astonished among them
seven days.

¶ Ezekiel 3 v16-21

{ heart }   [EK] 3v16

And it came to pass at the end of seven days,
that the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying;

{ heart }   [EK] 3v17

Son of man, I have made thee a watchman
unto the house of Israel:
therefore hear the word at MY mouth,
and give them warning from ME.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v18

When I say unto the wicked;

 ‘Thou shalt surely die,’ 

And thou givest him not warning,
nor speakest to warn the wicked
from his wicked way to save his life;
the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity:
but his blood will I require at thine hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v19

Yet if thou warn the wicked,
and he turn not from his wickedness,
nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity,
but thou hast delivered thy soul.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v20

Again, when a righteous man doth turn
from his righteousness, and commit iniquity,
and I lay a stumbling block before him,
he shall die:
because thou hast not given him warning,
he shall die in his sin,
and his righteousness which he hath done
shall not be remembered:
but his blood will I require at thine hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v21

Nevertheless, if thou warn the righteous man,
that the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin;
he shall surely live, because he is warned:
also thou hast delivered thy soul.

¶ Ezekiel 3 v22-27

{ heart }   [EK] 3v22

And the HAND of the LORD was there upon me,
and HE said unto me;


Arise, go forth into the plain,
and I will there talk with thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v23

Then I arose and went forth into the plain,
and behold, the GLORY of the LORD stood there
as the GLORY WHICH I saw by the river of Chebar,
and I fell on my face.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v24

Then the SPIRIT entered into me,
and set me upon my feet, and spake with me,
and said unto me,


Go shut thyself within thine house.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v25

But thou, O son of man,
behold, they shall put bands upon thee,
and shall bind thee with them,
and thou shalt not go out among them.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v26

And I will make thy tongue cleave
to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb,
and shalt not be to them a reprover:
for they are a rebellious house.

{ heart }   [EK] 3v27

But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth,
and thou shalt say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
He that heareth, let him hear,
and he that forbeareth, let him forbear:
for they are a rebellious house’.

¶ Ezekiel 4 v1-4

{ heart }   [EK] 4v1

Thou also son of man, take thee a tile,
and lay it before thee,
and portray upon it the city, even Jerusalem,

{ heart }   [EK] 4v2

And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it,
and cast a mount against it:
set the camp also against it,
and set battering rams against it round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v3

Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan,
and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city,
and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged,
and thou shalt lay siege against it:
this shall be a sign to the house of Israel.

¶ Ezekiel 4 v4-8

{ heart }   [EK] 4v4

Lie thou also upon thy left side,
and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it:
according to the number of the days
that thou shalt lie upon it,
thou shalt bear their iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v5

For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity,
according to the number of the days,
three hundred and ninety days.
So shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v6

And when thou hast accomplished them,
lie again on thy right side,
and thou shalt bear the iniquity
of the house of Judah forty days:
I have appointed thee each day for a year.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v7

Therefore, thou shalt set thy face
toward the siege of Jerusalem,
and thine arm shall be uncovered,
and thou shalt prophesy against it.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v8

And behold, I will lay bands upon thee,
and thou shalt not turn thee
from one side to another,
till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.

¶ Ezekiel 4 v9-17

{ heart }   [EK] 4v9

Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley,
and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches,
and put them in one vessel,
and make thee bread thereof,
according to the number of the days
that thou shalt lie upon thy side,
three hundred and ninety days
shalt thou eat thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v10

And thy meat which thou shalt eat,
shall be by weight twenty shekels a day:
from time to time shalt thou eat it.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v11

Thou shalt drink also water by measure,
the sixth part of an hin:
from time to time shalt thou drink.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v12

And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes,
and thou shalt bake it with dung
that cometh out of man in their sight.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v13

And the LORD said,

Even thus shall the children of Israel
eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles,
whither I will drive them.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v14

Then said I,

 ‘Ah LORD GOD,
behold, my soul hath not been polluted:
for from my youth up even till now,
have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself,
or is torn in pieces,
neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth’.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v15

Then HE said unto me,

Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung
and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.

{ heart }   [EK] 4v16

Moreover, HE said unto me,

Son of man,
behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem,
and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care,
and they shall drink water by measure,
and with astonishment:

{ heart }   [EK] 4v17

That they may want bread and water,
and be astounded one with another,
and consume away for their iniquity.

» Ezekiel 5

¶ Ezekiel 5 v1-4

{ heart }   [EK] 5v1

And thou son of man, take thee a sharp knife,
take thee a barber's razor,
and cause it to pass upon thine head
and upon thy beard:
then take thee balances to weigh,
and divide the hair.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v2

Thou shalt burn with fire a third part
in the midst of the city,
when the days of the siege are fulfilled,
and thou shalt take a third part,
and smite round about it with a knife,
and a third part thou shalt scatter in the wind,
and I will draw out a sword after them.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v3

Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number,
and bind them in thy skirts.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v4

Then take of them again,
and cast them into the midst of the fire,
and burn them in the fire:
for thereof shall a fire come forth
into all the house of Israel.

¶ Ezekiel 5 v5-17

{ heart }   [EK] 5v5

Thus saith the LORD GOD;

This is Jerusalem:
I have set it in the midst of the nations
and countries that are round about her.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v6

And she hath changed MY judgments
into wickedness more than the nations,
and MY statutes
more than the countries that are round about her:
for they have refused MY judgments
and MY statutes, they have not walked in them.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v7

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD,

Because ye multiplied
more than the nations that are round about you,
and have not walked in MY statutes,
neither have kept MY judgments,
neither have done according to the judgments
of the nations that are round about you:

{ heart }   [EK] 5v8

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I, even I AM against thee,
and will execute judgments in the midst of thee
in the sight of the nations.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v9

And I will do in thee that which I have not done,
and whereunto I will not do any more the like,
because of all thine abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v10

Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons
in the midst of thee,
and the sons shall eat their fathers,
and I will execute judgments in thee,
and the whole remnant of thee
will I scatter into all the winds.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v11

Wherefore, as I live,

Saith the LORD GOD,

Surely because thou hast defiled MY sanctuary
with all thy detestable things,
and with all thine abominations,
therefore will I also diminish thee,
neither shall MINE eye spare,
neither will I have any pity.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v12

A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence,
and with famine shall they be consumed
in the midst of thee:
and a third part shall fall by the sword
round about thee:
and I will scatter a third part into all the winds,
and I will draw out a sword after them.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v13

Thus shall MINE anger be accomplished,
and I will cause MY fury to rest upon them,
and I will be comforted: and they shall know

 ‘That I the LORD have spoken it in MY zeal,’ 

When I have accomplished MY fury in them.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v14

Moreover I will make thee waste,
and a reproach among the nations
that are round about thee,
in the sight of all that pass by.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v15

So it shall be a reproach and a taunt,
an instruction and an astonishment
unto the nations that are round about thee,
when I shall execute judgments in thee
in anger and in fury, and in furious rebukes:
I the LORD have spoken it.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v16

When I shall send upon them
the evil arrows of famine,
which shall be for their destruction,
and which I will send to destroy you:
and I will increase the famine upon you,
and will break your staff of bread.

{ heart }   [EK] 5v17

So will I send upon you famine, and evil beasts,
and they shall bereave thee,
and pestilence and blood shall pass through thee,
and I will bring the sword upon thee:
I the LORD have spoken it.

¶ Ezekiel 6 v1-7

{ heart }   [EK] 6v1

And the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 6v2

Son of man,
set thy face towards the mountains of Israel,
and prophesy against them,

{ heart }   [EK] 6v3

And say,’ 

Ye mountains of Israel,
hear the word of the LORD GOD,
Thus saith the LORD GOD
to the mountains and to the hills,
to the rivers and to the valleys,

Behold, I, even I will bring a sword upon you,
and I will destroy your high places.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v4

And your altars shall be desolate,
and your images shall be broken:
and I will cast down your slain men
before your idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v5

And I will lay the dead carcasses
of the children of Israel
before their idols, and I will scatter your bones
round about your altars.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v6

In all your dwelling places
the cities shall be laid waste,
and the high places shall be desolate,
that your altars may be laid waste
and made desolate,
and your idols may be broken and cease,
and your images may be cut down,
and your works may be abolished.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v7

And the slain shall fall in the midst of you,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 6 v8-10

{ heart }   [EK] 6v8

Yet will I leave a remnant,
that ye may have some,
that shall escape the sword among the nations,
when ye shall be scattered through the countries.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v9

And they that escape of you shall remember ME
among the nations,
whither they shall be carried captives,
because I AM broken with their whorish heart
which hath departed from ME, and with their eyes
which go a whoring after their idols:
and they shall loathe themselves
for the evils which they have committed
in all their abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v10

And they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,
and that I have not said in vain,
that I would do this evil unto them’.

¶ Ezekiel 6 v11-14

{ heart }   [EK] 6v11

Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Smite with thine hand, and stamp with thy foot,
and say,

 ‘Alas, for all the evil abominations
of the house of Israel:
for they shall fall by the sword,
by the famine, and by the pestilence’.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v12

He that is far off shall die of the pestilence,
and he that is near shall fall by the sword,
and he that remaineth and is besieged,
shall die by the famine:
thus will I accomplish MY fury upon them.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v13

Then shall ye know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When their slain men shall be among their idols
round about their altars,
upon every high hill in all the tops of the mountains,
and under every green tree,
and under every thick oak,
the place where they did offer sweet savor
to all their idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 6v14

So will I stretch out MY hand upon them,
and make the land desolate,
yea, more desolate than the wilderness
towards Diblah, in all their habitations,
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 7 v1-4

{ heart }   [EK] 7v1

Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying'

{ heart }   [EK] 7v2

Also thou son of man,
thus saith the LORD GOD unto the land of Israel:

 ‘An end,
the end is come upon the four corners of the land’.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v3

Now is the end come upon thee,
and I will send MINE anger upon thee,
and will judge thee according to thy ways,
and will recompense upon thee
all thine abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v4

And MINE eye shall not spare thee,
neither will I have pity:
but I will recompense thy ways upon thee,
and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 7 v5-22

{ heart }   [EK] 7v5

Thus saith the LORD GOD,
An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v6

An end is come, the end is come,
it watcheth for thee, behold, it is come.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v7

The morning is come unto thee,
O thou that dwellest in the land:
the time is come, the day of trouble is near,
and not the sounding again of the mountains.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v8

Now will I shortly pour out MY fury upon thee,
and accomplish MINE anger upon thee:
and I will judge thee according to thy ways,
and will recompense thee for all thine abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v9

And MINE eye shall not spare,
neither will I have pity:
I will recompense thee according to thy ways,
and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD THAT smiteth’.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v10

Behold the day, behold, it is come,
the morning is gone forth,
the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v11

Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness:
none of them shall remain, nor of their multitude,
nor of any of theirs,
neither shall there be wailing for them.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v12

The time is come, the day draweth near,
let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn:
for wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v13

For the seller shall not return
to that which is sold, although they were yet alive:
for the vision is touching the whole multitude thereof,
which shall not return:
neither shall any strengthen himself
in the iniquity of his life.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v14

They have blown the trumpet,
even to make all ready, but none goeth to the battle:
for MY wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v15

The sword is without,
and the pestilence and the famine within:
he that is in the field shall die with the sword,
and he that is in the city,
famine and pestilence shall devour him.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v16

But they that escape of them, shall escape,
and shall be on the mountains
like doves of the valleys,
all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v17

All hands shall be feeble,
and all knees shall be weak as water.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v18

They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth,
and horror shall cover them,
and shame shall be upon all faces,
and baldness upon all their heads.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v19

They shall cast their silver in the streets,
and their gold shall be removed:
their silver and their gold
shall not be able to deliver them
in the day of the wrath of the LORD:
they shall not satisfy their souls,
neither fill their bowels:
because it is the stumbling block of their iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v20

As for the beauty of his ornament,
he set it in majesty:
but they made the images of their abominations,
and of their detestable things therein:
therefore have I set it far from them.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v21

And I will give it into the hands of the strangers
for a prey,
and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil,
and they shall pollute it.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v22

MY face will I turn also from them,
and they shall pollute MY secret place:
for the robbers shall enter into it and defile it.

¶ Ezekiel 7 v23-27

{ heart }   [EK] 7v23

Make a chain:
for the land is full of bloody crimes,
and the city is full of violence.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v24

Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen,
and they shall possess their houses:
I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease,
and their holy places shall be defiled.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v25

Destruction cometh, and they shall seek peace,
and there shall be none.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v26

Mischief shall come upon mischief,
and rumor shall be upon rumor,
then shall they seek a vision of the prophet:
but the law shall perish from the priest,
and counsel from the ancients.

{ heart }   [EK] 7v27

The king shall mourn,
and the prince shall be clothed with desolation,
and the hands of the people of the land
shall be troubled:
I will do unto them after their way,
and according to their deserts will I judge them,
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

» Ezekiel 8

¶ Ezekiel 8 v1-6

{ heart }   [EK] 8v1

And it came to pass in the sixth year,
in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month,

As I sat in mine house,
and the elders of Judah sat before me;
that the HAND of the LORD GOD fell there upon me.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v2

Then I beheld, and lo, a likeness
as the appearance of fire:
from the appearance of HIS loins even downward, fire:
and from HIS loins even upward,
as the appearance of brightness,
as the color of amber.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v3

And HE put forth the form of an hand,
and took me by a lock of mine head,
and the SPIRIT lift me up
between the earth and the heaven,
and brought me in the visions of GOD to Jerusalem,
to the door of the inner gate,
that looketh toward the north,
where was the seat of the image of jealousy,
which provoketh to jealousy.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v4

And behold, the glory of the GOD of Israel was there
according to the vision that I saw in the plain.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v5

Then said HE unto me,

Son of man, lift up thine eyes now
the way towards the north:


So I lift up mine eyes in the way toward the north,
and behold, northward at the gate of the altar,
this image of jealousy in the entry.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v6

HE said furthermore unto me,

Son of man, seest thou what they do?
even the great abominations
that the house of Israel committeth here,
that I should go far off from MY sanctuary?
but turn thee yet again,
and thou shalt see greater abominations.

¶ Ezekiel 8 v7-13

{ heart }   [EK] 8v7

And HE brought me to the door of the court,
and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v8

Then said HE unto me,

Son of man, dig now in the wall:
and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v9

And HE said unto me,

Go in, and behold the wicked abominations
that they do here.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v10

So I went in and saw,
and behold every form of creeping things,
and abominable beasts,
and all the idols of the house of Israel
portrayed upon the wall round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v11

And there stood before them seventy men
of the ancients of the house of Israel,
and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah
the son of Shaphan,
with every man his censer in his hand,
and a thick cloud of incense went up.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v12

Then said HE unto me,

Son of man, hast thou seen
what the ancients of the house of Israel
do in the dark,
every man in the chambers of his imagery?
for they say,

 ‘The LORD seeth us not,
the LORD hath forsaken the earth’.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v13

HE said also unto me,

Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see
greater abominations that they do.

¶ Ezekiel 8 v14-15

{ heart }   [EK] 8v14

Then HE brought me to the door
of the gate of the LORD'S house,
which was towards the north,
and behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v15

Then said HE unto me,

Hast thou seen this, O son of man?
Turn thee yet again,
and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.

¶ Ezekiel 8 v16-18

{ heart }   [EK] 8v16

And HE brought me into the inner court
of the LORD'S house,
and behold at the door of the temple of the LORD,
between the porch and the altar,
were about five and twenty men,
with their backs toward the temple of the LORD,
and their faces towards the east,
and they worshipped the sun towards the east.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v17

Then HE said unto me,

Hast thou seen this, O son of man?
Is it a light thing to the house of Judah,
that they commit the abominations,
which they commit here?
for they have filled the land with violence,
and have returned to provoke ME to anger:
and lo, they put the branch to their nose.

{ heart }   [EK] 8v18

Therefore will I also deal in fury:
MINE eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity:
and though they cry in MINE ears with a loud voice,
yet will I not hear them.

» Ezekiel 9

¶ Ezekiel 9 v1-7

{ heart }   [EK] 9v1

HE cried also in mine ears, with a loud voice,
saying;


Cause Them That have charge over the city,
to draw near, even every Man
with His destroying weapon in His hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v2

And behold, six Men came from the way
of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north,
and every Man a slaughter weapon in His hand:
and one Man among Them was clothed with linen,
with a writer's inkhorn by His side,
and They went in and stood beside the brasen altar.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v3

And the Glory of the GOD of Israel
was gone up from the Cherub,
whereupon HE was, to the threshold of the house,
and HE called to the Man clothed with linen,
Which had the writer's inkhorn by His side.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v4

And the LORD said unto Him,

Go through the midst of the city,
through the midst of Jerusalem,
and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men
that sigh, and that cry for all the abominations,
that be done in the midst thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v5

And to the Others HE said in mine hearing,

Go Ye after Him through the city, and smite:
let not your eye spare, neither have Ye pity.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v6

Slay utterly old and young;
both maids, and little children, and women,
but come not near any man upon whom is the mark,
and begin at MY sanctuary:


Then They began at the ancient men
which were before the house.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v7

And HE said unto Them,

Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain,
go Ye forth:


And They went forth and slew in the city.

¶ Ezekiel 9 v8-11

{ heart }   [EK] 9v8

And it came to pass while They were slaying them,
and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried
and said,

 ‘Ah LORD GOD,
wilt THOU destroy all the residue of Israel,
in THY pouring out of THY fury upon Jerusalem?’ 

{ heart }   [EK] 9v9

Then said HE unto me;

The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah
is exceeding great, and the land is full of blood,
and the city full of perverseness: for they say,

 ‘The LORD hath forsaken the earth,
and the LORD seeth not’.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v10

And as for ME also, MINE eye shall not spare,
neither will I have pity,
but I will recompense their way upon their head.

{ heart }   [EK] 9v11

And behold, the Man clothed with linen,
Which had the inkhorn by His side,
reported the matter, saying,


I have done as THOU hast commanded Me.

» Ezekiel 10

¶ Ezekiel 10 v1-17

{ heart }   [EK] 10v1

Then I looked, and behold, in the firmament
that was above the head of the Cheribums,
there appeared over Them
as it were a sapphire Stone,
as the appearance of the likeness of a throne.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v2

And HE spake unto the Man clothed with linen,
and said,


Go in between the Wheels, even under the Cherub,
and fill Thine hand with coals of fire
from between the Cherubims,
and scatter them over the city.


And He went in my sight.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v3

Now the Cherubims stood on the right side
of the house, when the Man went in,
and the Cloud filled the inner court.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v4

Then the Glory of the LORD went up
from the Cherub,
and stood over the threshold of the house,
and the house was filled with the Cloud,
and the court was full of the brightness
of the LORD'S Glory.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v5

And the sound of the Cherubim's wings
was heard even to the utter court,
as the voice of the ALMIGHTY GOD
when HE speaketh.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v6

And it came to pass that when HE had commanded
the Man clothed with linen,
saying,


Take fire from between the Wheels,
from between the Cherubims;


Then He went in and stood beside the Wheels.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v7

And one Cherub stretched forth His hand
from between the Cherubims
unto the fire that was between the Cherubims:
and took thereof, and put it into the hands
of Him That was clothed with linen,
Who took it, and went out.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v8

And there appeared in the Cherubims,
the form of a man's hand under Their wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v9

And when I looked,
behold the four Wheels by the Cherubims,
one Wheel by one Cherub,
and another Wheel by another Cherub:
and the appearance of the Wheels
was as the color of a beryl stone.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v10

And as for Their appearances,
They four had one likeness
as if a Wheel had been in the midst of a Wheel.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v11

When They went, They went upon Their four sides;
They turned not as They went,
but to the place whither the head looked,
They followed it; They turned not as They went.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v12

And Their whole body, and Their backs,
and Their hands, and Their wings, and the Wheels,
were full of eyes round about,
even the Wheels That They four had.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v13

As for the Wheels,
it was cried unto them in my hearing,


O Wheel.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v14

And Every One had four faces:
the first face was the face of a Cherub,
and the second face was the face of a man,
and the third the face of a lion,
and the fourth the face of an eagle.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v15

And the Cherubims were lifted up,
This is the Living Creature
That I saw by the river of Chebar.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v16

And when the Cherubims went,
the Wheels went by Them:
and when the Cherubims lift up Their wings,
to mount up from the earth,
the same Wheels also turned not from beside Them.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v17

When They stood, These stood,
and when They were lifted up,
These lift up Themselves also:
for the SPIRIT of the Living Creature was in Them.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v18

Then the Glory of the LORD departed
from off the threshold of the house,
and stood over the Cherubims.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v19

And the Cherubims lift up Their wings,
and mounted up from the earth in my sight:
when They went out,
the Wheels also were beside Them,
and Every One stood at the door
of the east gate of the LORD'S house,
and the Glory of the GOD of Israel
was over Them above.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v20

This is the Living Creature That I saw
under the GOD of Israel, by the river of Chebar,
and I knew that They were the Cherubims.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v21

Every One had four faces a piece,
and Every One four wings,
and the likeness of the hands of a man
was under Their wings.

{ heart }   [EK] 10v22

And as for the likeness of Their faces
was the same faces which I saw by the river of Chebar,
Their appearances and Themselves:
They went Every One straight forward.

» Ezekiel 11

¶ Ezekiel 11 v1-13

{ heart }   [EK] 11v1

Moreover the SPIRIT lift me up, and brought me
unto the east gate of the LORD'S house,
which looketh eastward:
and behold at the door of the gate,
five and twenty men;
among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur,
and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah,
princes of the people.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v2

Then said HE unto me;

Son of man,
these are the men that devise mischief,
and give wicked counsel in this city.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v3

Which say,

 ‘It is not near, let us build houses:
this city is the caldron, and we be the flesh’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v4

Therefore prophesy against them,
prophesy, O son of man.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v5

And the SPIRIT of the LORD fell upon me,
and said unto me,


Speak,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD;
Thus have ye said, O house of Israel:
for I know the things that come into your mind,
every one of them’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v6

Ye have multiplied your slain in this city,
and ye have filled the streets thereof
with the slain.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v7

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD;
Your slain whom ye have laid in the midst of it,
they are the flesh, and this city is the caldron:
but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v8

Ye have feared the sword,
and I will bring a sword upon you,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v9

And I will bring you out of the midst thereof,
and deliver you into the hands of foreigners,
and will execute judgments among you.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v10

Ye shall fall by the sword,
I will judge you in the border of Israel,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v11

This city shall not be your caldron,
neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof,
but I will judge you in the border of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v12

And ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD:’ 

For ye have not walked in MY statutes,
neither executed MY judgments,
but have done after the manners of the heathen
that are round about you.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v13

And it came to pass, when I prophesied,
that Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died:
then fell I down upon my face,
and cried with a loud voice, and said,

 ‘Ah, LORD GOD,
wilt THOU make a full end of the remnant of Israel?’ 

¶ Ezekiel 11 v14-21

{ heart }   [EK] 11v14

Again the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 11v15

Son of man, thy brethren,
even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred,
and all the house of Israel wholly are they,
unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said;

 ‘Get ye far from the LORD:
unto us is this land given in possession’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v16

Therefore say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Although I have cast them far off
among the heathen,
and although I have scattered them
among the countries,
yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary
in the countries where they shall come’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v17

Therefore say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
I will even gather you from the people,
and assemble you out of the countries
where ye have been scattered,
and I will give you the land of Israel’.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v18

And they shall come thither,
and they shall take away
all the detestable things thereof,
and all the abominations thereof from thence.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v19

And I will give them one heart,
and I will put a new spirit within you:

and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh,
and will give them an heart of flesh,

{ heart }   [EK] 11v20

That they may walk in MY statutes,
and keep MINE ordinances, and do them:
and they shall be MY people,
and I will be their GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v21

But as for them whose heart walketh after
the heart of their detestable things,
and their abominations,
I will recompense their way upon their own heads,


Saith the LORD GOD.

Then did the Cherubims lift up Their wings,
and the Wheels beside Them,
and the Glory of the GOD of Israel
was over Them above.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v23

And the Glory of the LORD went up
from the midst of the city,
and stood upon the mountain,
which is on the east side of the city.

{ heart }   [EK] 11v24

Afterwards the SPIRIT took me up,
and brought me in a vision by the SPIRIT of GOD
into Chaldea to them of the captivity:
so the vision that I had seen, went up from me.

Then I spake unto them of the captivity,

» Ezekiel 12

¶ Ezekiel 12 v1-7

{ heart }   [EK] 12v1

The word of the LORD also came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 12v2

Son of man,
thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house,
which have eyes to see, and see not:
they have ears to hear, and hear not:
for they are a rebellious house.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v3

Therefore thou son of man,
prepare thee stuff for removing,
and remove by day in their sight,
and thou shalt remove from thy place
to another place in their sight;
it may be they will consider,
though they be a rebellious house.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v4

Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day
in their sight, as stuff for removing:
and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight,
as they that go forth into captivity.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v5

Dig thou through the wall in their sight,
and carry out thereby.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v6

In their sight shalt thou bear it upon thy shoulders,
and carry it forth in the twilight:
thou shalt cover thy face,
that thou see not the ground:
for I have set thee for a sign
unto the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v7

And I did so as I was commanded:
I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity,
and in the evening I digged through the wall
with mine hand, I brought it forth in the twilight,
and I bore it upon my shoulder in their sight.

¶ Ezekiel 12 v8-16

And in the morning
came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 12v9

Son of man, hath not the house of Israel,
the rebellious house, said unto thee,

 ‘What doest thou’ ?

{ heart }   [EK] 12v10

Say thou unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem,
and all the house of Israel that are among them’.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v11

Say,

 ‘I am your sign:
like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them:
they shall remove and go into captivity’.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v12

And the prince that is among them,
shall bear upon his shoulder in the twilight,
and shall go forth:
they shall dig through the wall to carry out thereby:
he shall cover his face,
that he see not the ground with his eyes.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v13

MY net also will I spread upon him,
and he shall be taken in MY snare,
and I will bring him to Babylon
to the land of the Chaldeans,
yet shall he not see it, though he shall die there.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v14

And I will scatter toward every wind
all that are about him to help him, and all his bands,
and I will draw out the sword after them.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v15

And they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I shall scatter them among the nations,
and disperse them in the countries.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v16

But I will leave a few men of them from the sword,
from the famine, and from the pestilence,
that they may declare all their abominations
among the heathen whither they come,
and they shall know

Moreover, the word of the LORD came to me,
saying;

{ heart }   [EK] 12v18

Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking,
and drink thy water with trembling
and with carefulness,

{ heart }   [EK] 12v19

And say unto the people of the land;

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD,
of the inhabitants of Jerusalem,
and of the land of Israel;
They shall eat their bread with carefulness,
and drink their water with astonishment,
that her land may be desolate from all that is therein,
because of the violence of all them
that dwell therein’.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v20

And the cities that are inhabited,
shall be laid waste,
and the land shall be desolate, and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 12 v21-25

{ heart }   [EK] 12v21

And the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 12v22

Son of man, what is that proverb,
that ye have in the land of Israel,
saying;

 ‘The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth’?

{ heart }   [EK] 12v23

Tell them therefore,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
I will make this proverb to cease,
and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel:’ 

But say unto them,

 ‘The days are at hand,
and the effect of every vision’.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v24

For there shall be no more any vain vision,
nor flattering divination, within the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v25

For I AM the LORD:
I will speak, and the word that I shall speak,
shall come to pass: it shall be no more prolonged:
for in your days, O rebellious house,
will I say the word, and will perform it,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 12 v26-28

Again the word of the LORD came to me,
saying,

Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel
say;

 ‘The vision that he seeth is for many days to come,
and he prophesieth of the times that are far off’.

{ heart }   [EK] 12v28

Therefore say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD,
There shall none of MY words be prolonged
any more,
but the word which I have spoken, shall be done,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 13 v1-16

{ heart }   [EK] 13v1

And the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying;

{ heart }   [EK] 13v2

Son of man, prophesy against
the prophets of Israel that prophesy,
and say thou unto them
that prophesy out of their own hearts,

 ‘Hear ye the word of the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v3

Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Woe unto the foolish prophets,
that follow their own spirit, and have seen nothing.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v4

O Israel,
thy prophets are like the foxes in the deserts.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v5

Ye have not gone up into the gaps,
neither made up the hedge for the house of Israel,
to stand in the battle in the day of the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v6

They have seen vanity and lying divination,
saying;

 ‘The LORD saith,’ 

And the LORD hath not sent them:
and they have made others to hope,
that they would confirm the word.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v7

Have ye not seen a vain vision,
and have ye not spoken a lying divination,
whereas ye say,

 ‘The LORD saith it,’ 

Albeit I have not spoken?

{ heart }   [EK] 13v8

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD;
Because ye have spoken vanity and seen lies,
therefore behold, I AM against you,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v9

And MINE hand shall be upon the prophets
that see vanity, and that divine lies:
they shall not be in the assembly of MY people,
neither shall they be written in the writing
of the house of Israel,
neither shall they enter into the land of Israel,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD GOD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v10

Because, even because they have seduced
MY people, saying;

 ‘Peace,’ 

And there was no peace: and one built up a wall,
and lo, others daubed it with untempered mortar,

{ heart }   [EK] 13v11

Say unto them
which daub it with untempered mortar,

 ‘That it shall fall:
there shall be an overflowing shower,
and ye, O great hail stones, shall fall,
and a stormy wind shall rent it’.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v12

Lo, when the wall is fallen,
shall it not be said unto you;

 ‘Where is the daubing
wherewith ye have daubed it’ ?

{ heart }   [EK] 13v13

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD;
I will even rent it with a stormy wind in MY fury:
and there shall be an overflowing shower
in MINE anger,
and great hail stones in MY fury to consume it.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v14

So will I break down the wall
that ye have daubed with untempered mortar,
and bring it down to the ground,
so that the foundation thereof
shall be discovered, and it shall fall,
and ye shall be consumed in the midst thereof;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v15

Thus will I accomplish MY wrath upon the wall,
and upon them
that have daubed it with untempered mortar,
and will say unto you,

 ‘The wall is no more,
neither they that daubed it’:

{ heart }   [EK] 13v16

To wit, the prophets of Israel
which prophesy concerning Jerusalem,
and which see visions of peace for her,
and there is no peace,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 13 v17-23

{ heart }   [EK] 13v17

Likewise thou son of man,
set thy face against the daughters of thy people,
which prophesy out of their own heart;
and prophesy thou against them,

{ heart }   [EK] 13v18

And say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Woe to the women that sew pillows
to all armholes, and make kerchiefs
upon the head of every stature to hunt souls:
Will ye hunt the souls of MY people,
and will ye save the souls alive
that come unto you’?

{ heart }   [EK] 13v19

And will ye pollute ME among MY people
for handfuls of barley, and for pieces of bread,
to slay the souls that should not die,
and to save the souls alive that should not live,
by your lying to MY people that hear your lies?

{ heart }   [EK] 13v20

Wherefore thus saith the LORD GOD,
Behold, I AM against your pillows,
wherewith ye there hunt the souls to make them fly,
and I will tear them from your arms,
and will let the souls go,
even the souls that ye hunt to make them fly.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v21

Your kerchiefs also will I tear,
and deliver MY people out of your hand,
and they shall be no more in your hand to be hunted,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 13v22

Because with lies
ye have made the heart of the righteous sad,
whom I have not made sad;
and strengthened the hands of the wicked,
that he should not return from his wicked way
by promising him life:

{ heart }   [EK] 13v23

Therefore ye shall see no more vanity,
nor divine divinations,
for I will deliver MY people out of your hand,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 14 v1-11

{ heart }   [EK] 14v1

Then came certain of the elders of Israel unto me,
and sat before me.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v2

And the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 14v3

Son of man,
these men have set up their idols in their heart,
and put the stumbling block of their iniquity
before their face:
should I be enquired of at all by them?

{ heart }   [EK] 14v4

Therefore speak unto them, and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Every man of the house of Israel
that setteth up his idols in his heart,
and putteth the stumbling block of his iniquity
before his face, and cometh to the prophet,
I the LORD will answer him that cometh,
according to the multitude of his idols’,

{ heart }   [EK] 14v5

That I may take the house of Israel
in their own heart,
because they are all estranged from ME
through their idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v6

Therefore say unto the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD,
Repent, and turn yourselves from your idols,
and turn away your faces
from all your abominations’.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v7

For every one of the house of Israel,
or of the foreigner that sojourneth in Israel,
which separateth himself from ME,
and setteth up his idols in his heart,
and putteth the stumbling block of his iniquity
before his face, and cometh to a prophet
to enquire of him concerning ME,
I the LORD will answer him by MYSELF;

{ heart }   [EK] 14v8

And I will set MY face against that man,
and will make him a sign and a proverb,
and I will cut him off from the midst of MY people,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v9

And if the prophet be deceived
when he hath spoken a thing,
I the LORD have deceived that prophet,
and I will stretch out MY hand upon him,
and will destroy him
from the midst of MY people Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v10

And they shall bear the punishment of their iniquity:
the punishment of the prophet
shall be even as the punishment of him
that seeketh unto him:

{ heart }   [EK] 14v11

That the house of Israel
may go no more astray from ME,
neither be polluted any more
with all their transgressions;
but that they may be MY people,
and I may be their GOD,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 14 v12-23

{ heart }   [EK] 14v12

The word of the LORD came again to me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 14v13

Son of man, when the land sinneth against ME
by trespassing grievously,
then will I stretch out MINE hand upon it,
and will break the staff of the bread thereof,
and will send famine upon it,
and will cut off man and beast from it.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v14

Though these three men,
Noah, Daniel, and Job were in it,
they should deliver but their own souls
by their righteousness,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v15

If I cause noisome beasts to pass through the land,
and they spoil it, so that it be desolate,
that no man may pass through
because of the beasts:

{ heart }   [EK] 14v16

Though these three men were in it, as I live,

Saith the LORD GOD,

They shall deliver neither sons nor daughters:
they only shall be delivered,
but the land shall be desolate.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v17

Or if I bring a sword upon that land,
and say,

 ‘Sword, go through the land,
so that I cut off man and beast from it’:

{ heart }   [EK] 14v18

Though these three men were in it, as I live,

Saith the LORD GOD,

They shall deliver neither sons nor daughters,
but they only shall be delivered themselves.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v19

Or if I send a pestilence into that land,
and pour out MY fury upon it in blood,
to cut off from it man and beast:

{ heart }   [EK] 14v20

Though Noah, Daniel and Job were in it, as I live,

Saith the LORD GOD,

They shall deliver neither son nor daughter:
they shall but deliver their own souls
by their righteousness.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v21

For thus saith the LORD GOD,
How much more when I send
MY four sore judgments upon Jerusalem;
the sword, and the famine, and the noisome beast,
and the pestilence, to cut off from it man and beast?

{ heart }   [EK] 14v22

Yet behold, therein shall be left a remnant
that shall be brought forth, both sons and daughters:
behold, they shall come forth unto you,
and ye shall see their way and their doings:
and ye shall be comforted concerning the evil
that I have brought upon Jerusalem,
even concerning all that I have brought upon it.

{ heart }   [EK] 14v23

And they shall comfort you
when ye see their ways and their doings:
and ye shall know that I have not done
without cause, all that I have done in it,


Saith the LORD GOD.

» Ezekiel 15

¶ Ezekiel 15 v1-8

{ heart }   [EK] 15v1

And the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 15v2

Son of man,
What is the vine tree more than any tree,
or than a branch
which is among the trees of the forest?

{ heart }   [EK] 15v3

Shall wood be taken thereof to do any work?
or, will men take a pin of it,
to hang any vessel thereon?

{ heart }   [EK] 15v4

Behold, it is cast into the fire for fuel:
the fire devoureth both the ends of it,
and the midst of it is burnt. Is it meet for any work?

{ heart }   [EK] 15v5

Behold, when it was whole it was meet for no work:
how much less shall it be meet yet for any work,
when the fire hath devoured it, and it is burned?

{ heart }   [EK] 15v6

Therefore thus saith the LORD GOD;
As the vine tree among the trees of the forest,
which I have given to the fire for fuel,
so will I give the inhabitants of Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [EK] 15v7

And I will set MY face against them,
they shall go out from one fire,
and another fire shall devour them,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I set MY face against them.

{ heart }   [EK] 15v8

And I will make the land desolate,
because they have committed a trespass,


Saith the LORD GOD.

» Ezekiel 16

¶ Ezekiel 16 v1-14

{ heart }   [EK] 16v1

Again the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying;

{ heart }   [EK] 16v2

Son of man,
cause Jerusalem to know her abominations,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v3

And say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD unto Jerusalem;
Thy birth and thy nativity is of the land of Canaan,
thy father was an Amorite,
and thy mother an Hittite’.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v4

And as for thy nativity in the day thou wast born,
thy navel was not cut,
neither wast thou washed in water to supple thee:
thou wast not salted at all, nor swaddled at all.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v5

None eye pitied thee to do any of these unto thee,
to have compassion upon thee,
but thou wast cast out in the open field,
to the loathing of thy person,
in the day that thou wast born.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v6

And when I passed by thee,
and saw thee polluted in thine own blood,
I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood,

 ‘Live:’ 

Yea I said unto thee when thou wast in thy blood,

 ‘Live’.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v7

I have caused thee to multiply
as the bud of the field,
and thou hast increased and waxen great,
and thou art come to excellent ornaments:
thy breasts are fashioned, and thine hair is grown,
whereas thou wast naked and bare.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v8

Now when I passed by thee, and looked upon thee,
behold, thy time was the time of love,
and I spread MY skirt over thee,
and covered thy nakedness: yea, I swore unto thee,
and entered into a covenant with thee,


Saith the LORD GOD,

And thou becamest MINE.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v9

Then washed I thee with water:
yea, I thoroughly washed away thy blood from thee,
and I anointed thee with oil.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v10

I clothed thee also with broidered work,
and shod thee with badgers' skin,
and I girded thee about with fine linen,
and I covered thee with silk.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v11

I decked thee also with ornaments,
and I put bracelets upon thy hands,
and a chain on thy neck.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v12

And I put a jewel on thy forehead,
and earrings in thine ears,
and a beautiful crown upon thine head.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v13

Thus wast thou decked with gold and silver,
and thy raiment was of fine linen and silk,
and embroidered work,
thou diddest eat fine flour and honey and oil,
and thou wast exceeding beautiful,
and thou diddest prosper into a kingdom.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v14

And thy renown went forth among the heathen
for thy beauty:
for it was perfect through MY comeliness
which I had put upon thee,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 16 v15-35

{ heart }   [EK] 16v15

But thou diddest trust in thine own beauty,
and playedst the harlot, because of thy renown,
and pouredst out thy fornications
on every one that passed by; his it was.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v16

And of thy garments thou diddest take,
and deckedst thy high places with divers colors,
and playedst the harlot thereupon:
the like things shall not come, neither shall it be so.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v17

Thou hast also taken thy fair jewels
of MY gold and of MY silver, which I had given thee,
and madest to thyself images of men,
and diddest commit whoredom with them,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v18

And tookest thy embroidered garments
and coveredst them:
and thou hast set MINE oil and MINE incense
before them.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v19

MY meat also which I gave thee,
fine flour, and oil, and honey, wherewith I fed thee,
thou hast even set it before them for a sweet savor:
and thus it was,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v20

Moreover thou hast taken thy sons
and thy daughters, whom thou hast borne unto ME,
and these hast thou sacrificed unto them
to be devoured:
is this of thy whoredoms a small matter,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v21

That thou hast slain MY children,
and delivered them
to cause them to pass through the fire for them?

{ heart }   [EK] 16v22

And in all thine abominations and thy whoredoms,
thou hast not remembered the days of thy youth,
when thou wast naked and bare,
and wast polluted in thy blood.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v23

And it came to pass after all thy wickedness
(woe, woe unto thee,


Saith the LORD GOD).

{ heart }   [EK] 16v24

That thou hast also built unto thee
an eminent place,
and hast made thee an high place in every street.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v25

Thou hast built thy high place
at every head of the way,
and hast made thy beauty to be abhorred,
and hast opened thy feet
to every one that passed by,
and multiplied thine whoredoms.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v26

Thou hast also committed fornication
with the Egyptians thy neighbors great of flesh,
and hast increased thy whoredoms,
to provoke ME to anger.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v27

Behold therefore,
I have stretched out MY hand over thee,
and have diminished thine ordinary food,
and delivered thee
unto the will of them that hate thee,
the daughters of the Philistines,
which are ashamed of thy lewd way.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v28

Thou hast played the whore
also with the Assyrians,
because thou wast unsatiable:
yea thou hast played the harlot with them,
and yet couldest not be satisfied.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v29

Thou hast moreover multiplied thy fornication
in the land of Canaan unto Chaldea,
and yet thou wast not satisfied herewith.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v30

How weak is thine heart,

Saith the LORD GOD,

Seeing thou doest all these things,
the work of an imperious whorish woman?

{ heart }   [EK] 16v31

In that thou buildest thine eminent place
in the head of every way,
and makest thine high place in every street,
and hast not been as an harlot,
in that thou scornest hire:

{ heart }   [EK] 16v32

But as a wife that committeth adultery,
which taketh strangers instead of her husband.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v33

They give gifts to all whores,
but thou givest thy gifts to all thy lovers,
and hirest them,
that they may come unto thee on every side
for thy whoredom.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v34

And the contrary is in thee from other women
in thy whoredoms,
whereas none followeth thee to commit whoredoms,
and in that thou givest a reward,
and no reward is given unto thee:
therefore thou art contrary.

¶ Ezekiel 16 v35-43

{ heart }   [EK] 16v35

Wherefore, O harlot, hear the word of the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v36

Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Because thy filthiness was poured out,
and thy nakedness discovered
through thy whoredoms with thy lovers,
and with all the idols of thy abominations,
and by the blood of thy children,
which thou diddest give unto them,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v37

Behold therefore, I will gather all thy lovers,
with whom thou hast taken pleasure,
and all them that thou hast loved,
with all them that thou hast hated:
I will even gather them round about against thee,
and will discover thy nakedness unto them,
that they may see all thy nakedness.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v38

And I will judge thee,
as women that break wedlock and shed blood
are judged,
and I will give thee blood in fury and jealousy.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v39

And I will also give thee into their hand,
and they shall throw down thine eminent place,
and shall break down thy high places:
they shall strip thee also of thy clothes,
and shall take thy fair jewels,
and leave thee naked and bare.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v40

They shall also bring up a company against thee,
and they shall stone thee with stones,
and thrust thee through with their swords.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v41

And they shall burn thine houses with fire,
and execute judgments upon thee
in the sight of many women:
and I will cause thee to cease
from playing the harlot,
and thou also shalt give no hire any more.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v42

So will I make MY fury towards thee to rest,
and MY jealousy shall depart from thee,
and I will be quiet, and will be no more angry.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v43

Because thou hast not remembered
the days of thy youth,
but hast fretted ME in all these things;
behold therefore,
I also will recompense thy way upon thine head,


Saith the LORD GOD,

And thou shalt not commit this lewdness
above all thine abominations.

¶ Ezekiel 16 v44-58

{ heart }   [EK] 16v44

Behold, every one that useth proverbs
shall use this proverb against thee,
saying,

 ‘As is the mother, so is her daughter’.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v45

Thou art thy mother's daughter,
that loatheth her husband and her children;
and thou art the sister of thy sisters,
which loathed their husbands and their children;
your mother was an Hittite,
and your father an Amorite.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v46

And thine elder sister is Samaria,
she and her daughters
that dwell at thy left hand;
and thy younger sister,
that dwelleth at thy right hand,
is Sodom and her daughters.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v47

Yet hast thou not walked after their ways,
nor done after their abominations;
but, as if that were a very little thing,
thou wast corrupted more than they
in all thy ways.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v48

As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
Sodom, thy sister, hath not done,
she nor her daughters,
as thou hast done,
thou and thy daughters.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v49

Behold,
this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom:
pride,
fullness of bread,
and abundance of idleness
was in her and in her daughters,
neither did she strengthen the hand
of the poor and needy.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v50  { heart }

And they were haughty,
and committed abomination before ME;
therefore I took them away
as I saw good.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v51

Neither hath Samaria
committed half of thy sins,
but thou hast multiplied thine abominations
more than they,
and hast justified thy sisters
in all thine abominations which thou hast done.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v52

Thou also, which hast judged thy sisters,
bear thine own shame
for thy sins that thou hast committed
more abominable than they;
they are more righteous than thou;
yea, be thou confounded also,
and bear thy shame,
in that thou hast justified thy sisters.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v53

When I shall bring again their captivity,
the captivity of Sodom and her daughters,
and the captivity of Samaria and her daughters,
then will I bring again the captivity of thy captives
in the midst of them,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v54

That thou mayest bear thine own shame,
and mayest be confounded
in all that thou hast done,
in that thou art a comfort unto them.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v55

When thy sisters, Sodom and her daughters,
shall return to their former estate,
and Samaria and her daughters
shall return to their former estate,
then thou and thy daughters
shall return to your former estate.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v56

For thy sister, Sodom,
was not mentioned by thy mouth
in the day of thy pride,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v57

Before thy wickedness was discovered,
as at the time of thy reproach
of the daughters of Syria,
and all that are round about her,
the daughters of the Philistines,
which despise thee round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v58

Thou hast borne thy lewdness
and thine abominations,


Saith the LORD.

¶ Ezekiel 16 v59-63

{ heart }   [EK] 16v59

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

I will even part with thee as thou hast done,
which hast despised the oath
in breaking the covenant.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v60

Nevertheless,
I will remember MY covenant with thee
in the days of thy youth,
and I will establish unto thee
an everlasting covenant.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v61

Then thou shalt remember thy ways,
and be ashamed,
when thou shalt receive thy sisters,
thine elder and thy younger;
and I will give them unto thee for daughters,
but not by thy covenant.

{ heart }   [EK] 16v62

And I will establish MY covenant with thee;
and thou shalt know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’,

{ heart }   [EK] 16v63

That thou mayest remember,
and be confounded,
and never open thy mouth any more
because of thy shame,
when I AM pacified toward thee
for all that thou hast done,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 17 v1-10

{ heart }   [EK] 17v1

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 17v2

Son of man,
put forth a riddle, and speak a parable
unto the house of Israel,

{ heart }   [EK] 17v3

And say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
A great eagle with great wings,
long-winged,
full of feathers, which had divers colors,
came unto Lebanon,
and took the highest branch of the cedar’.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v4

He cropped off the top of his young twigs,
and carried it into a land of trade;
he set it in a city of merchants.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v5

He took also of the seed of the land,
and planted it in a fruitful field;
he placed it by great waters,
and set it as a willow tree.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v6

And it grew,
and became a spreading vine of low stature,
whose branches turned toward him,
and the roots thereof were under him;
so it became a vine,
and brought forth branches, and shot forth sprigs.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v7

There was also another great eagle
with great wings and many feathers;
and, behold,
this vine did bend her roots toward him,
and shot forth her branches toward him,
that he might water it
by the furrows of her plantation.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v8

It was planted in a good soil by great waters,
that it might bring forth branches,
and that it might bear fruit,
that it might be a goodly vine.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v9

Say thou,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Shall it prosper?
shall he not pull up the roots thereof,
and cut off the fruit thereof, that it wither?
it shall wither in all the leaves of her spring,
even without great power
or many people to pluck it up by the roots thereof’.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v10

Yea, behold, being planted, shall it prosper?
shall it not utterly wither,
when the east wind toucheth it?
it shall wither in the furrows where it grew.

¶ Ezekiel 17 v11-21

{ heart }   [EK] 17v11

Moreover, the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 17v12

Say now
to the rebellious house,

 ‘Know ye not

What these things mean?’ 

Tell them,

 ‘Behold, the king of Babylon is come to Jerusalem,
and hath taken the king thereof,
and the princes thereof,
and led them with him to Babylon’;

{ heart }   [EK] 17v13

And hath taken of the king's seed,
and made a covenant with him,
and hath taken an oath of him;
he hath also taken the mighty of the land,

{ heart }   [EK] 17v14

That the kingdom might be base,
that it might not lift itself up,
but that by keeping of his covenant
it might stand.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v15

But he rebelled against him
in sending his ambassadors into Egypt,
that they might give him horses and much people:
shall he prosper?
shall he escape that doeth such things?
or shall he break the covenant,
and be delivered?

{ heart }   [EK] 17v16

As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
Surely in the place where the king dwelleth
that made him king,
whose oath he despised,
and whose covenant he brake,
even with him in the midst of Babylon
he shall die.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v17

Neither shall Pharaoh,
with his mighty army and great company,
make for him in the war,
by casting up siege mounts, and building forts,
to cut off many persons.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v18

Seeing he despised the oath
by breaking the covenant,
when, lo, he had given his hand,
and hath done all these things,
he shall not escape.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v19

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD,
As I live,
surely MINE oath that he hath despised,
and MY covenant that he hath broken,
even it will I recompense upon his own head.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v20

And I will spread MY net upon him,
and he shall be taken in MY snare,
and I will bring him to Babylon,
and will plead with him there for his trespass
that he hath trespassed against ME.

{ heart }   [EK] 17v21

And all his fugitives, with all his bands,
shall fall by the sword,
and they that remain
shall be scattered toward all winds;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I, the LORD, have spoken it’.

Thus saith the LORD GOD:
I will also take of the highest branch
of the high cedar,
and will set it out;

a tender one,
and will plant it upon an high mountain
and eminent;

In the mountain of the height of Israel
will I plant it,
and it shall bring forth boughs, and bear fruit,
and be a goodly cedar,
and under it shall dwell all fowl of every wing;
in the shadow of the branches thereof
shall they dwell.

And all the trees of the field
shall know

 ‘That I, the LORD,

have exalted the low tree,
have dried up the green tree,

hath executed true judgment
between man and man,

¶ Ezekiel 18 v10-13

{ heart }   [EK] 18v10

If he beget a son
that is a robber, a shedder of blood,
and that doth the like
to any one of these things,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v11

And that doeth not any of those duties,
but even hath eaten upon the mountains,
and defiled his neighbor's wife,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v12

Hath oppressed the poor and needy,
hath spoiled by violence,
hath not restored the pledge,
and hath lifted up his eyes to the idols,
hath committed abomination,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v13

Hath given forth upon usury,
and hath taken increase;
shall he then live?
he shall not live;
he hath done all these abominations;
he shall surely die;
his blood shall be upon him.

¶ Ezekiel 18 v14-20

{ heart }   [EK] 18v14

Now, lo, if he beget a son,
that seeth all his father's sins
which he hath done,
and considereth, and doth not such like,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v15

That hath not eaten upon the mountains,
neither hath lifted up his eyes
to the idols of the house of Israel,
hath not defiled his neighbor's wife,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v16

Neither hath oppressed any,
hath not withheld the pledge,
neither hath spoiled by violence,
but hath given his bread to the hungry,
and hath covered the naked with a garment,

{ heart }   [EK] 18v17

That hath taken off his hand from the poor,
that hath not received usury nor increase,
hath executed MY judgments,
hath walked in MY statutes;
he shall not die for the iniquity of his father,
he shall surely live.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v18

As for his father,
because he cruelly oppressed,
spoiled his brother by violence,
and did that which is not good among his people,
lo, even he shall die in his iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v19

Yet say ye,

 ‘Why?
doth not the son
bear the iniquity of the father?’ 

When the son hath done
that which is lawful and right,
and hath kept all MY statutes, and hath done them,
he shall surely live.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v20

The soul that sinneth, it shall die:
the son shall not bear the iniquity of the father,
neither shall the father bear the iniquity of the son;
the righteousness of the righteous
shall be upon him,
and the wickedness of the wicked
shall be upon him.

¶ Ezekiel 18 v21-23

{ heart }   [EK] 18v21

But if the wicked will turn from all his sins
that he hath committed,
and keep all MY statutes,
and do that which is lawful and right,
he shall surely live, he shall not die.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v22

All his transgressions that he hath committed,
they shall not be mentioned unto him;
in his righteousness, that he hath done,
he shall live.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v23

Have I any pleasure at all
that the wicked should die?


Saith the LORD GOD;

And not that he should return from his ways,
and live?

¶ Ezekiel 18 v24-26

{ heart }   [EK] 18v24

But when the righteous turneth away
from his righteousness,
and committeth iniquity,
and doeth according to all the abominations
that the wicked man doeth,
shall he live?
all his righteousness that he hath done
shall not be mentioned;
in his trespass that he hath trespassed,
and in his sin that he hath sinned,
in them shall he die.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v25

Yet ye say,

 ‘The way of the LORD is not equal.’ 

Hear now, O house of Israel;

 ‘Is not MY way equal?
are not your ways unequal’?

{ heart }   [EK] 18v26

When a righteous man turneth away
from his righteousness,
and committeth iniquity,
and dieth in them;
for his iniquity that he hath done
shall he die.

¶ Ezekiel 18 v27-29

{ heart }   [EK] 18v27

Again,
when the wicked man turneth away
from his wickedness that he hath committed,
and doeth that which is lawful and right,
he shall save his soul alive.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v28

Because he considereth, and turneth away
from all his transgressions that he hath committed,
he shall surely live, he shall not die.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v29

Yet saith the house of Israel,

 ‘The way of the LORD is not equal.’ 

O house of Israel, are not MY ways equal?
are not your ways unequal?

¶ Ezekiel 18 v30-32

{ heart }   [EK] 18v30

Therefore I will judge you, O house of Israel,
every one according to his ways,


Saith the LORD GOD.

Repent,
and turn yourselves from all your transgressions;
so iniquity shall not be your ruin.

{ heart }   [EK] 18v31

Cast away from you all your transgressions,
whereby ye have transgressed;
and make you a new heart and a new spirit;
for why will ye die, O house of Israel?

{ heart }   [EK] 18v32

For I have no pleasure in the death
of him that dieth,


Saith the LORD GOD;

Wherefore turn yourselves, and live ye.

» Ezekiel 19

¶ Ezekiel 19 v1-5

{ heart }   [EK] 19v1

Moreover, take thou up a lamentation
for the princes of Israel,

{ heart }   [EK] 19v2

And say,

 ‘What is thy mother?
a lioness:
she lay down among lions,
she nourished her whelps among young lions’.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v3

And she brought up one of her whelps;
it became a young lion,
and it learned to catch the prey;
it devoured men.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v4

The nations also heard of him;
he was taken in their pit,
and they brought him with chains
unto the land of Egypt.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v5

Now when she saw that she had waited,
and her hope was lost,
then she took another of her whelps,
and made him a young lion.

¶ Ezekiel 19 v6-9

{ heart }   [EK] 19v6

And he went up and down among the lions;
he became a young lion,
and learned to catch the prey,
and devoured men.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v7

And he knew

 ‘Their desolate palaces,’ 

And he laid waste their cities;
and the land was desolate, and the fullness thereof,
by the noise of his roaring.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v8

Then the nations set against him on every side
from the provinces,
and spread their net over him;
he was taken in their pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v9

And they put him in ward in chains,
and brought him to the king of Babylon;
they brought him into holds,
that his voice should no more be heard
upon the mountains of Israel.

¶ Ezekiel 19 v10-14

{ heart }   [EK] 19v10

Thy mother is like a vine in thy blood,
planted by the waters;
she was fruitful and full of branches
by reason of many waters.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v11

And she had strong rods
for the scepters of them that bore rule,
and her stature was exalted
among the thick branches,
and she appeared in her height
with the multitude of her branches.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v12

But she was plucked up in fury;
she was cast down to the ground,
and the east wind dried up her fruit;
her strong rods were broken and withered;
the fire consumed them.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v13

And now she is planted in the wilderness,
in a dry and thirsty ground.

{ heart }   [EK] 19v14

And fire is gone out of a rod of her branches,
which hath devoured her fruit,
so that she hath no strong rod
to be a scepter to rule:
this is a lamentation,
and shall be for a lamentation.

» Ezekiel 20

¶ Ezekiel 20 v1-9

{ heart }   [EK] 20v1

And it came to pass
in the seventh year, in the fifth month,
the tenth day of the month,

That certain of the elders of Israel
came to enquire of the LORD,
and sat before me.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v2

Then came the word of the LORD unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v3

Son of man,
speak unto the elders of Israel,
and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Are ye come to enquire of ME?
As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
I will not be enquired of by you’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v4

Wilt thou judge them, son of man,
wilt thou judge them?
cause them to know

 ‘The abominations of their fathers’,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v5

And say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
In the day when I chose Israel,
and lifted up MINE hand
unto the seed of the house of Jacob,
and made MYSELF known unto them
in the land of Egypt,
when I lifted up MINE hand unto them,
saying,

I AM the LORD, your GOD’;

{ heart }   [EK] 20v6

In the day
that I lifted up MINE hand unto them,
to bring them forth of the land of Egypt
into a land that I had espied for them,
flowing with milk and honey,
which is the glory of all lands;

{ heart }   [EK] 20v7

Then said I unto them,

 ‘Cast ye away every man
the abominations of his eyes,
and defile not yourselves with the idols of Egypt;
I AM the LORD your GOD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v8

But they rebelled against ME,
and would not hearken unto ME;
they did not every man cast away
the abominations of their eyes,
neither did they forsake the idols of Egypt:
then I said,

 ‘I will pour out MY fury upon them,
to accomplish MY anger against them
in the midst of the land of Egypt’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v9

But I wrought for MY NAME'S sake,
that it should not be polluted before the heathen,
among whom they were,
in whose sight
I made MYSELF known unto them,
in bringing them forth out of the land of Egypt.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v10-17

{ heart }   [EK] 20v10

Wherefore, I caused them to go forth
out of the land of Egypt,
and brought them into the wilderness.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v11

And I gave them MY statutes,
and showed them MY judgments,
which if a man do, he shall even live in them.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v12

Moreover, also, I gave them MY sabbaths,
to be a sign between ME and them,
that they might know

 ‘That I AM the LORD
THAT sanctify them’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v13

But the house of Israel rebelled against ME
in the wilderness;
they walked not in MY statutes,
and they despised MY judgments,
which if a man do, he shall even live in them;
and MY sabbaths they greatly polluted:
then I said,

 ‘I would pour out MY fury upon them
in the wilderness,
to consume them’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v14

But I wrought for MY NAME'S sake,
that it should not be polluted before the heathen,
in whose sight I brought them out.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v15

Yet also I lifted up MY hand unto them
in the wilderness,
that I would not bring them
into the land which I had given them,
flowing with milk and honey,
which is the glory of all lands,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v16

Because they despised MY judgments,
and walked not in MY statutes,
but polluted MY sabbaths;
for their heart went after their idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v17

Nevertheless, MINE eye spared them
from destroying them,
neither did I make an end of them
in the wilderness.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v18-26

{ heart }   [EK] 20v18

But I said unto their children
in the wilderness,

 ‘Walk ye not in the statutes of your fathers,
neither observe their judgments,
nor defile yourselves with their idols’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v19

I AM the LORD your GOD;
walk in MY statutes,
and keep MY judgments, and do them;

{ heart }   [EK] 20v20

And hallow MY sabbaths;
and they shall be a sign between ME and you,
that ye may know

 ‘That I AM the LORD your GOD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v21

Notwithstanding,
the children rebelled against ME;
they walked not in MY statutes,
neither kept MY judgments to do them,
which if a man do, he shall even live in them;
they polluted MY sabbaths:
then I said,

 ‘I would pour out MY fury upon them,
to accomplish MY anger against them
in the wilderness’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v22

Nevertheless, I withdrew MINE hand,
and wrought for MY NAME'S sake,
that it should not be polluted
in the sight of the heathen,
in whose sight I brought them forth.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v23

I lifted up MINE hand unto them
also in the wilderness,
that I would scatter them among the heathen,
and disperse them through the countries,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v24

Because they had not executed MY judgments,
but had despised MY statutes,
and had polluted MY sabbaths,
and their eyes were after their fathers' idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v25

Wherefore, I gave them also
statutes that were not good,
and judgments whereby they should not live;

{ heart }   [EK] 20v26

And I polluted them in their own gifts,
in that they caused to pass through the fire
all that openeth the womb,
that I might make them desolate,
to the end, that they might know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v27-29

{ heart }   [EK] 20v27

Therefore, son of man,
speak unto the house of Israel,
and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed ME,
in that they have committed a trespass
against ME’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v28

For when I had brought them into the land,
for the which I lifted up MINE hand
to give it to them,
then they saw every high hill,
and all the thick trees,
and they offered there their sacrifices,
and there they presented
the provocation of their offering;
there also they made their sweet savor,
and poured out there their drink offerings.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v29

Then I said unto them,

 ‘What is the high place whereunto ye go?
and the name thereof is called

Bamah

Unto this day’.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v30-38

{ heart }   [EK] 20v30

Wherefore, say unto the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Are ye polluted
after the manner of your fathers?
and commit ye whoredom
after their abominations’?

{ heart }   [EK] 20v31

For when ye offer your gifts,
when ye make your sons to pass through the fire,
ye pollute yourselves with all your idols,
even unto this day;
and shall I be enquired of by you,
O house of Israel?

 ‘As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
I will not be enquired of by you’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v32

And that which cometh into your mind
shall not be at all, that ye say,

 ‘We will be as the heathen,
as the families of the countries,
to serve wood and stone’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v33

As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
Surely with a mighty hand,
and with a stretched out arm,
and with fury poured out,
will I rule over you;

{ heart }   [EK] 20v34

And I will bring you out from the people,
and will gather you out of the countries
wherein ye are scattered,
with a mighty hand, and with a stretched out arm,
and with fury poured out.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v35

And I will bring you into the wilderness
of the peoples,
and there will I plead with you face to face.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v36

As I pleaded with your fathers in the wilderness
of the land of Egypt,
so will I plead with you,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v37

And I will cause you to pass under the rod,
and I will bring you into the bond
of the covenant.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v38

And I will purge out from among you
the rebels,
and them that transgress against ME;
I will bring them forth
out of the country where they sojourn,
and they shall not enter into the land of Israel;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v39-44

{ heart }   [EK] 20v39

As for you, O house of Israel,
thus saith the LORD GOD:
Go ye, serve ye every one his idols,
and hereafter also,
if ye will not hearken unto ME,
but pollute ye MY HOLY NAME
no more with your gifts, and with your idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v40

For in MINE holy mountain,
in the mountain of the height of Israel,


Saith the LORD GOD,

There shall all the house of Israel,
all of them in the land, serve ME;
there will I accept them,
and there will I require your offerings,
and the first fruits of your oblations,
with all your holy things.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v41

I will accept you with your sweet savor,
when I bring you out from the people,
and gather you out of the countries
wherein ye have been scattered;
and I will be sanctified in you
before the heathen.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v42

And ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I shall bring you into the land of Israel,
into the country
for which I lifted up MINE hand
to give it to your fathers.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v43

And there shall ye remember your ways,
and all your doings,
wherein ye have been defiled;
and ye shall loathe yourselves
in your own sight
for all your evils that ye have committed.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v44

And ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I have wrought with you
for MY NAME'S sake,
not according to your wicked ways,
nor according to your corrupt doings,
O ye house of Israel,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 20 v45-49

{ heart }   [EK] 20v45

Moreover,
the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v46

Son of man,
set thy face toward the south,
and drop thy word toward the south,
and prophesy against the forest of the south field,

{ heart }   [EK] 20v47

And say to the forest of the south,

 ‘Hear the word of the LORD:
Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Behold, I will kindle a fire in thee,
and it shall devour every green tree in thee,
and every dry tree;
the flaming flame shall not be quenched,
and all faces from the south to the north
shall be burned therein’.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v48

And all flesh shall see
that I the LORD have kindled it:
it shall not be quenched.

{ heart }   [EK] 20v49

Then said I,

 ‘Ah LORD GOD, they say of me,

Doeth he not speak parables’?

» Ezekiel 21

¶ Ezekiel 21 v1-7

{ heart }   [EK] 21v1

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v2

Son of man,
set thy face toward Jerusalem,
and drop thy word toward the holy places,
and prophesy against the land of Israel,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v3

And say to the land of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD:
Behold, I AM against thee,
and will draw forth MY sword
out of his sheath,
and will cut off from thee
the righteous and the wicked’.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v4

Seeing then that I will cut off from thee
the righteous and the wicked,
therefore shall MY sword go forth
out of his sheath
against all flesh from the south to the north:

{ heart }   [EK] 21v5

That all flesh may know

 ‘That I the LORD have drawn forth MY sword
out of his sheath;
it shall not return any more’.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v6

Sigh therefore, thou son of man,
with the breaking of thy loins;
and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v7

And it shall be, when they say unto thee,

 ‘Wherefore sighest thou?’ 

That thou shalt answer,

 ‘For the tidings, because it cometh:
and every heart shall melt,
and all hands shall be feeble,
and every spirit shall faint,
and all knees shall be weak as water;
behold, it cometh, and shall be brought to pass’,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 21 v8-17

{ heart }   [EK] 21v8

Again the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v9

Son of man, prophesy, and say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD:
Say,

A sword, a sword is sharpened,
and also furbished’;

{ heart }   [EK] 21v10

It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter;
it is furbished that it may glitter:
should we then make mirth?
It despiseth the rod of my son, as every tree.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v11

And HE hath given it to be furbished,
that it may be handled;
this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished,
to give it into the hand of the slayer.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v12

Cry and howl, son of man;
for it shall be upon MY people,
it shall be upon all the princes of Israel;
terrors by reason of the sword
shall be upon MY people;
smite, therefore, upon thy thigh.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v13

Because it is a trial,
and what if the sword contemn even the rod?
it shall be no more,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v14

Thou, therefore, son of man, prophesy,
and smite thine hands together,
and let the sword be doubled the third time,
the sword of the slain;
it is the sword of the great men that are slain,
which entereth into their privy chambers.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v15

I have set the point of the sword
against all their gates,
that their heart may faint,
and their ruins be multiplied.
Ah, it is made bright,
it is wrapped up for the slaughter.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v16

Go thee one way or another,
either on the right hand, or on the left,
whithersoever thy face is set.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v17

I will also smite MINE hands together,
and I will cause MY fury to rest;
I the LORD have said it.

¶ Ezekiel 21 v18-27

{ heart }   [EK] 21v18

The word of the LORD came unto me again,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v19

Also, thou son of man, appoint thee two ways,
that the sword of the king of Babylon may come;
both twain shall come forth out of one land;
and choose thou a place,
choose it at the head of the way to the city.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v20

Appoint a way, that the sword may come
to Rabbath of the Ammonites,
and to Judah in Jerusalem the fortified.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v21

For the king of Babylon stood
at the parting of the way,
at the head of the two ways,
to use divination;
he made his arrows bright,
he consulted with images,
he looked in the liver.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v22

At his right hand
was the divination for Jerusalem,
to appoint captains,
to open the mouth in the slaughter,
to lift up the voice with shouting,
to appoint battering rams against the gates,
to cast a siege mount, and to build a fort.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v23

And it shall be unto them as a false divination
in their sight,
to them that have sworn oaths;
but he will call to remembrance the iniquity,
that they may be taken.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v24

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because ye have made your iniquity
to be remembered,
in that your transgressions are discovered,
so that in all your doings your sins do appear;
because, I say,

 ‘That ye are come to remembrance,’ 

Ye shall be taken with the hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v25

And thou, profane wicked prince of Israel,
whose day is come,
when iniquity shall have an end,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v26

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Remove the diadem, and take off the crown;
this shall not be the same;
exalt him that is low,
and abase him that is high.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v27

I will overturn, overturn, overturn it;
and it shall be no more,
until HE come, WHOSE right it is,
and I will give it HIM.

¶ Ezekiel 21 v28-32

{ heart }   [EK] 21v28

And thou son of man, prophesy,
and say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD
concerning the Ammonites,
and concerning their reproach:
even say thou,

The sword, the sword is drawn,
for the slaughter it is furbished,
to consume because of the glittering,

{ heart }   [EK] 21v29

Whiles they see vanity unto thee,
whiles they divine a lie unto thee,
to bring thee upon the necks of those that are slain,
of the wicked,
whose day is come,
when their iniquity shall have an end’.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v30

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

{ heart }   [EK] 21v31

And I will pour out MINE indignation upon thee;
I will blow against thee in the fire of MY wrath,
and deliver thee into the hand of brutish men,
and skilful to destroy.

{ heart }   [EK] 21v32

Thou shalt be for fuel to the fire;
thy blood shall be in the midst of the land;
thou shalt be no more remembered;
for I the LORD have spoken it.

¶ Ezekiel 22 v1-12

{ heart }   [EK] 22v1

Moreover, the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 22v2

Now, thou son of man, wilt thou judge,
wilt thou judge the bloody city?
yea, thou shalt show her all her abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v3

Then say thou,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
The city sheddeth blood in the midst of it,
that her time may come,
and maketh idols against herself
to defile herself’.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v4

Thou art become guilty
in thy blood that thou hast shed,
and hast defiled thyself
in thine idols which thou hast made;
and thou hast caused thy days to draw near,
and art come even unto thy years;
therefore have I made thee
a reproach unto the heathen,
and a mocking to all countries.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v5

Those that be near,
and those that be far from thee,
shall mock thee,
which art infamous and much vexed.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v6

Behold, the princes of Israel,
every one were in thee to their power
to shed blood.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v7

In thee
have they set light by father and mother;
in the midst of thee
have they dealt by oppression with the sojourner;
in thee
have they vexed the fatherless and the widow.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v8

Thou hast despised MINE holy things,
and hast profaned MY sabbaths.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v9

In thee
are men that carry tales to shed blood;
and in thee
they eat upon the mountains;
in the midst of thee
they commit lewdness.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v10

In thee
have they discovered their fathers' nakedness;
in thee
have they humbled her
that was set apart for pollution.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v11

And one hath committed abomination
with his neighbor's wife,
and another hath lewdly defiled
his daughter-in-law,
and another in thee hath humbled his sister,
his father's daughter.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v12

In thee
have they taken gifts to shed blood;
thou hast taken usury and increase,
and thou hast greedily gained of thy neighbors
by extortion,
and hast forgotten ME,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 22 v13-16

{ heart }   [EK] 22v13

Behold,
therefore, I have smitten MINE hand
at thy dishonest gain which thou hast made,
and at thy blood
which hath been in the midst of thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v14

Can thine heart endure,
or can thine hands be strong,
in the days that I shall deal with thee?
I, the LORD have spoken it, and will do it.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v15

And I will scatter thee among the heathen,
and disperse thee in the countries,
and will consume thy filthiness out of thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v16

And thou shalt take thine inheritance in thyself
in the sight of the heathen,
and thou shalt know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 22 v17-22

{ heart }   [EK] 22v17

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 22v18

Son of man,
the house of Israel is to ME become dross;
all they are brass, and tin,
and iron, and lead,
in the midst of the furnace;
they are even the dross of silver.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v19

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:
Because ye are all become dross,
behold,
therefore, I will gather you
into the midst of Jerusalem.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v20

As they gather silver, and brass,
and iron, and lead, and tin,
into the midst of the furnace,
to blow the fire upon it, to melt it;
so will I gather you in MINE anger
and in MY fury,
and I will leave you there, and melt you.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v21

Yea, I will gather you,
and blow upon you in the fire of MY wrath,
and ye shall be melted in the midst thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v22

As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace,
so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof,
and ye shall know

 ‘That I the LORD,
have poured out MY fury upon you’.

¶ Ezekiel 22 v23-31

{ heart }   [EK] 22v23

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 22v24

Son of man, say unto her,

 ‘Thou art the land that is not cleansed,
nor rained upon in the day of indignation’.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v25

There is a conspiracy of her prophets
in the midst thereof,
like a roaring lion ravening the prey,
they have devoured souls;
they have taken the treasure and precious things;
they have made her many widows
in the midst thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v26

Her priests have violated MY law,
and have profaned MINE holy things;
they have put no difference between
the holy and profane,
neither have they showed difference between
the unclean and the clean,
and have hid their eyes from MY sabbaths,
and I AM profaned among them.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v27

Her princes in the midst thereof
are like wolves ravening the prey,
to shed blood, and to destroy souls,
to get dishonest gain.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v28

And her prophets
have daubed them with untempered mortar,
seeing vanity, and divining lies unto them,
saying,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD’ 

When the LORD hath not spoken.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v29

The people of the land have used oppression,
and exercised robbery,
and have vexed the poor and needy;
yea, they have oppressed the sojourner wrongfully.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v30

And I sought for a man among them,
that should make up the hedge,
and stand in the gap before ME for the land,
that I should not destroy it;
but I found none.

{ heart }   [EK] 22v31

Therefore have I poured out MINE indignation
upon them;
I have consumed them with the fire of MY wrath;
their own way have I recompensed
upon their heads,


Saith the LORD GOD.

» Ezekiel 23

¶ Ezekiel 23 v1-4

{ heart }   [EK] 23v1

The word of the LORD
came again unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v2

Son of man,
there were two women,
the daughters of one mother,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v3

And they committed whoredoms in Egypt;
they committed whoredoms in their youth;
there were their breasts pressed,
and there they bruised the teats of their virginity.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v4

And the names of them were
Aholah, the elder, and Oholibah, her sister:
and they were MINE,
and they bore sons and daughters:
thus were their names:
Samaria is Aholah, and Jerusalem, Oholibah.

¶ Ezekiel 23 v5-10

{ heart }   [EK] 23v5

And Aholah played the harlot
when she was MINE;
and she doted on her lovers,
on the Assyrians, her neighbors,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v6

Which were clothed with blue,
captains and rulers, all of them
desirable young men,
horsemen riding upon horses.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v7

Thus she committed her whoredoms with them,
with all them
that were the chosen men of Assyria,
and with all on whom she doted;
with all their idols she defiled herself.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v8

Neither left she her whoredoms
brought from Egypt;
for in her youth they lay with her,
and they bruised the breasts of her virginity,
and poured their whoredom upon her.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v9

Wherefore, I have delivered her
into the hand of her lovers,
into the hand of the Assyrians,
upon whom she doted.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v10

These discovered her nakedness;
they took her sons and her daughters,
and slew her with the sword;
and she became famous among women;
for they had executed judgment upon her.

¶ Ezekiel 23 v11-21

{ heart }   [EK] 23v11

And when her sister Oholibah saw this,
she was more corrupt
in her inordinate love than she,
and in her whoredoms more than her sister
in her whoredoms.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v12

She doted upon the Assyrians, her neighbors
captains and rulers clothed most gorgeously,
horsemen riding upon horses,
all of them desirable young men.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v13

Then I saw that she was defiled,
that they took both one way,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v14

And that she increased her whoredoms;
for when she saw men portrayed upon the wall,
the images of the Chaldeans
portrayed with vermilion,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v15

Girded with girdles upon their loins,
exceeding in dyed attire upon their heads,
all of them princes to look to,
after the manner of the Babylonians of Chaldea,
the land of their nativity;

{ heart }   [EK] 23v16

And as soon as she saw them with her eyes,
she doted upon them,
and sent messengers unto them into Chaldea.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v17

And the Babylonians came to her
into the bed of love,
and they defiled her with their whoredom,
and she was polluted with them,
and her mind was alienated from them.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v18

So she discovered her whoredoms,
and discovered her nakedness;
then MY mind was alienated from her,
like as MY mind was alienated from her sister.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v19

Yet she multiplied her whoredoms,
in calling to remembrance the days of her youth,
wherein she had played the harlot
in the land of Egypt.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v20

For she doted upon their paramours,
whose flesh is as the flesh of asses,
and whose issue is like the issue of horses.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v21

Thus thou calledst to remembrance
the lewdness of thy youth,
in bruising thy teats by the Egyptians
for the paps of thy youth.

¶ Ezekiel 22 v22-35

{ heart }   [EK] 23v22

Therefore, O Oholibah,

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I will raise up thy lovers against thee,
from whom thy mind is alienated,
and I will bring them against thee on every side:

{ heart }   [EK] 23v23

The Babylonians, and all the Chaldeans,
Pekod, and Shoa, and Koa,
and all the Assyrians with them,
all of them desirable young men,
captains and rulers, great lords and renowned,
all of them riding upon horses.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v24

And they shall come against thee
with chariots, wagons, and wheels,
and with an assembly of peoples,
which shall set against thee
buckler and shield and helmet round about;
and I will set judgment before them,
and they shall judge thee
according to their judgments.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v25

And I will set MY jealousy against thee,
and they shall deal furiously with thee;
they shall take away thy nose and thine ears,
and thy remnant shall fall by the sword;
they shall take thy sons and thy daughters;
and thy residue shall be devoured by the fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v26

They shall also strip thee out of thy clothes,
and take away thy fair jewels.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v27

Thus will I make thy lewdness
to cease from thee,
and thy whoredom brought from the land of Egypt;
so that thou shalt not lift up thine eyes unto them,
nor remember Egypt any more.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v28

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I will deliver thee
into the hand of them whom thou hatest,
into the hand of them
from whom thy mind is alienated;

{ heart }   [EK] 23v29

And they shall deal with thee hatefully,
and shall take away all thy labor,
and shall leave thee naked and bare;
and the nakedness of thy whoredoms
shall be discovered,
both thy lewdness and thy whoredoms.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v30

I will do these things unto thee,
because thou hast gone a whoring after
the heathen,
and because thou art polluted with their idols.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v31

Thou hast walked in the way of thy sister;
therefore will I give her cup into thine hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v32

Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Thou shalt drink of thy sister's cup
deep and large;
thou shalt be laughed to scorn and had in derision;
it containeth much.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v33

Thou shalt be filled with drunkenness and sorrow,
with the cup of astonishment and desolation,
with the cup of thy sister, Samaria.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v34

Thou shalt even drink it and suck it out,
and thou shalt break the sherds thereof,
and pluck off thine own breasts;
for I have spoken it,
saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v35

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because thou hast forgotten ME,
and cast ME behind thy back,
therefore bear thou also thy lewdness
and thy whoredoms.

¶ Ezekiel 23 v36-49

{ heart }   [EK] 23v36

The LORD said moreover
unto me,


Son of man,
wilt thou judge Aholah and Oholibah?
yea, declare unto them

 ‘Their abominations’,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v37

That they have committed adultery,
and blood is in their hands,
and with their idols have they committed adultery,
and have also caused their sons,
whom they bore unto ME,
to pass for them through the fire,
to devour them.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v38

Moreover, this they have done unto ME;
they have defiled MY sanctuary in the same day,
and have profaned MY sabbaths.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v39

For when they had slain their children
to their idols,
then they came the same day
into MY sanctuary
to profane it;
and, lo, thus have they done
in the midst of MINE house;

{ heart }   [EK] 23v40

And, furthermore,
that ye have sent for men
to come from far,
unto whom a messenger was sent;
and, lo, they came;
for whom thou diddest wash thyself,
paintedst thy eyes,
and deckedst thyself with ornaments,

{ heart }   [EK] 23v41

And sattest upon a stately bed,
and a table prepared before it,
whereupon
thou hast set MINE incense and MINE oil.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v42

And a voice of a multitude
being at ease was with her;
and with the men of the common sort
were brought Sabeans from the wilderness,
which put bracelets upon their hands,
and beautiful crowns upon their heads.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v43

Then said I unto her that was old in adulteries,

 ‘Will they now commit whoredoms with her,
and she with them’?

{ heart }   [EK] 23v44

Yet they went in unto her,
as they go in unto a woman
that playeth the harlot;
so went they in unto Aholah and unto Oholibah,
the lewd women.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v45

And the righteous men, they shall judge them
after the manner of adulteresses,
and after the manner of women that shed blood,
because they are adulteresses,
and blood is in their hands.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v46

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

I will bring up a company upon them,
and will give them to be removed and spoiled.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v47

And the company shall stone them with stones,
and dispatch them with their swords;
they shall slay their sons and their daughters,
and burn up their houses with fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v48

Thus will I cause lewdness to cease
out of the land,
that all women may be taught

 ‘Not to do after your lewdness’.

{ heart }   [EK] 23v49

And they shall recompense your lewdness upon you,
and ye shall bear the sins of your idols;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD GOD’.

» Ezekiel 24

¶ Ezekiel 24 v1-5

{ heart }   [EK] 24v1

Again,

In the ninth year, in the tenth month,
in the tenth day of the month,

The word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 24v2

Son of man,
write thee the name of the day,
even of this same day;
the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem
this same day.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v3

And utter a parable unto the rebellious house,
and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Set on a pot, set it on,
and also pour water into it’.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v4

Gather the pieces thereof into it,
even every good piece,
the thigh, and the shoulder;
fill it with the choice bones.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v5

Take the choice of the flock,
and burn also the bones under it,
and make it boil well,
and let them boil the bones therein.

¶ Ezekiel 24 v6-8

{ heart }   [EK] 24v6

Wherefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Woe to the bloody city,
to the pot whose scum is therein,
and whose scum is not gone out of it;
bring it out piece by piece;
let no lot fall upon it.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v7

For her blood is in the midst of her;
she set it upon the top of a rock;
she poured it not upon the ground,
to cover it with dust,

{ heart }   [EK] 24v8

That it might cause fury to come up
to take vengeance;
I have set her blood upon the top of a rock,
that it should not be covered.

¶ Ezekiel 24 v9-14

{ heart }   [EK] 24v9

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Woe to the bloody city;
I will even make he pile for fire great.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v10

Heap on wood, kindle the fire,
consume the flesh, and spice it well,
and let the bones be burned.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v11

Then set it empty upon the coals thereof,
that its brass may be hot and may burn,
and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it,
that the scum of it may be consumed.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v12

She hath wearied herself with lies,
and her great scum went not forth out of her;
her scum shall be in the fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v13

In thy filthiness is lewdness;
because I have purged thee,
and thou wast not purged,
thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness
any more,
till I have caused MY fury to rest upon thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v14

I the LORD have spoken it;
it shall come to pass,
and I will do it;
I will not go back, neither will I spare,
neither will I repent;
according to thy ways,
and according to thy doings,
shall they judge thee,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 24 v15-24

{ heart }   [EK] 24v15

Also the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 24v16

Son of man, behold,
I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes
with a stroke;
yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep,
neither shall thy tears run down.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v17

Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead,
bind the tire of thine head upon thee,
and put on thy shoes upon thy feet,
and cover not thy lips,
and eat not the bread of men.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v18

So I spake unto the people in the morning;
and at evening my wife died;
and I did in the morning as I was commanded.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v19

And the people said unto me,

 ‘Wilt thou not tell us

What these things are to us,
that thou doest so’?

{ heart }   [EK] 24v20

Then I answered them,

 ‘The word of the LORD came unto me,
saying’,

{ heart }   [EK] 24v21

Speak unto the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I will profane MY sanctuary,
the excellency of your strength,
the desire of your eyes,
and that which your soul pitieth;
and your sons and your daughters,
whom ye have left, shall fall by the sword’.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v22

And ye shall do as I have done;
ye shall not cover your lips,
nor eat the bread of men.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v23

And your tires shall be upon your heads,
and your shoes upon your feet;
ye shall not mourn nor weep;
but ye shall pine away for your iniquities,
and mourn one toward another.

{ heart }   [EK] 24v24

Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign;
according to all that he hath done, shall ye do;
and when this cometh,
ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD GOD’.

¶ Ezekiel 24 v25-27

{ heart }   [EK] 24v25

Also, thou son of man,
shall it not be in the day
when I take from them their strength,
the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes,
and that whereupon they set their minds,
their sons and their daughters,

{ heart }   [EK] 24v26

That he that escapeth in that day
shall come unto thee,
to cause thee to hear it with thine ears?

{ heart }   [EK] 24v27

In that day shall thy mouth be opened
to him which is escaped,
and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb;
and thou shalt be a sign unto them;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

came again unto me,
saying,

Son of man,
set thy face against the Ammonites,
and prophesy against them,

{ heart }   [EK] 25v3

And say unto the Ammonites,

 ‘Hear the word of the LORD GOD.

Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Because thou saidst,

Aha,

Against MY sanctuary,

and against the land of Israel,
when it was desolate;
and against the house of Judah,
when they went into captivity’;

{ heart }   [EK] 25v4

Behold,
therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east
for a possession,
and they shall set their palaces in thee,
and make their dwellings in thee;
they shall eat thy fruit, and they shall drink thy milk.

And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels,
and the Ammonites a couching place for flocks;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because thou hast clapped thine hands,
and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart
with all thy despite against the land of Israel,

Behold,
therefore, I will stretch out MINE hand upon thee,
and will deliver thee for a spoil

and I will cause thee to perish out of the countries.
I will destroy thee;

Because Moab and Seir do say,

Therefore,
behold, I will open the side of Moab
from the cities,
from its cities which are on his frontiers,
the glory of the country,
Beth-jeshimoth, Baal-meon, and Kiriathaim,

Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites,
and will give them in possession,

And I will execute judgments upon Moab;

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because Edom hath dealt
against the house of Judah
by taking vengeance,
and hath greatly offended,
and revenged himself upon them,

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

I will also stretch out MINE hand upon Edom,
and will cut off man and beast from it;
and I will make it desolate from Teman,
and they of Dedan shall fall by the sword.

And I will lay MY vengeance upon Edom

Behold,

because Tyre hath said against Jerusalem,

 ‘Aha,
she is broken that was the gates of the people,
she is turned unto me,
I shall be replenished now she is laid waste’;

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I AM against thee, O Tyre,
and will cause many nations
to come up against thee,
as the sea causeth his waves to come up.

And they shall destroy the walls of Tyre,
and break down her towers;
I will also scrape her dust from her,
and make her like the top of a rock.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v5

It shall be a place for the spreading of nets
in the midst of the sea;
for I have spoken it,
saith the LORD GOD,
and it shall become a spoil to the nations.

And her daughters which are in the field
shall be slain by the sword;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I will bring upon Tyre
Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon,
a king of kings, from the north,
with horses, and with chariots,
and with horsemen, and companies,
and much people.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v8

He shall slay with the sword
thy daughters in the field;
and he shall make a fort against thee,
and cast a siege mount against thee,
and lift up the buckler against thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v9

And he shall set engines of war
against thy walls,
and with his axes he shall break down thy towers.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v10

By reason of the abundance of his horses
their dust shall cover thee;
thy walls shall shake
at the noise of the horsemen,
and of the wheels, and of the chariots,
when he shall enter into thy gates,
as men enter into a city
wherein is made a breach.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v11

With the hoofs of his horses
shall he tread down all thy streets;
he shall slay thy people by the sword,
and thy strong garrisons
shall go down to the ground.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v12

And they shall make a spoil of thy riches,
and make a prey of thy merchandise;
and they shall break down thy walls,
and destroy thy pleasant houses;
and they shall lay thy stones and thy timber
and thy dust
in the midst of the water.

{ heart }   [EK] 26v13

And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease,
and the sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.

And I will make thee like the top of a rock;
thou shalt be a place to spread nets upon,

Then all the princes of the sea
shall come down from their thrones,

and put off their embroidered garments;
they shall clothe themselves with trembling;
they shall sit upon the ground,
and shall tremble at every moment,

And they shall take up a lamentation for thee,

which cause their terror to be on all that haunt it’?

in the day of thy fall;
yea, the isles that are in the sea
shall be troubled at thy departure.

¶ Ezekiel 26 v19-21

{ heart }   [EK] 26v19

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

When I shall make thee a desolate city,
like the cities that are not inhabited;
when I shall bring up the deep upon thee,
and great waters shall cover thee;

{ heart }   [EK] 26v20

When I shall bring thee down
with them that descend into the pit,
with the people of old time,
and shall set thee in the low parts of the earth,
in places desolate of old,
with them that go down to the pit,
that thou be not inhabited;
and I shall set glory in the land of the living;

{ heart }   [EK] 26v21

I will make thee a terror,
and thou shalt be no more;
though thou be sought for,
yet shalt thou never be found again,


Saith the LORD GOD.

take up a lamentation for Tyre,

the company of the Ashurites
have made thy benches of ivory,
brought out of the isles of Kittim.

Fine linen with embroidered work from Egypt
was that which thou spreadest forth to be thy sail;

The inhabitants of Sidon and Arvad
were thy mariners;
thy wise men, O Tyre, that were in thee,

The men of Arvad, with thine army,
were upon thy walls round about,
and the Gammadim were in thy towers;
they hanged their shields
upon thy walls round about;
they have made thy beauty perfect.

by reason of the multitude of all kind of riches;
with silver, iron, tin, and lead
they traded in thy fairs.

of thy making,
they occupied in thy fairs
with emeralds, purple, and embroidered work,

Damascus was thy merchant
in the multitude of the wares of thy making,
for the multitude of all riches;
in the wine of Helbon, and white wool.

thy mariners, and thy pilots, thy caulkers,
and the occupiers of thy merchandise,
and all thy men of war, that are in thee,
and in all thy company which is in the midst of thee,
shall fall into the midst of the seas
in the day of thy ruin.

The suburbs shall shake
at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.

shall come down from their ships;
they shall stand upon the land,

And shall cause their voice to be heard
against thee,
and shall cry bitterly,
and shall cast up dust upon their heads,
they shall wallow themselves in the ashes.

And they shall make themselves utterly bald
for thee,
and gird them with sackcloth;

And in their wailing
they shall take up a lamentation for thee,
and lament over thee,
saying,

 ‘What city is like Tyre,
like the destroyed in the midst of the sea’?

{ heart }   [EK] 27v33

When thy wares went forth out of the seas,
thou filledst many people;
thou diddest enrich the kings of the earth
with the multitude of thy riches
and of thy merchandise.

{ heart }   [EK] 27v34

In the time
when thou shalt be broken by the seas
in the depths of the waters,

came again unto me,
saying,

Son of man,
say unto the prince of Tyre,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Because thine heart is lifted up,
and thou hast said,

I am a god, I sit in the seat of GOD,
in the midst of the seas,’ 

Yet thou art a man, and not GOD,
though thou set thine heart
as the heart of GOD,

{ heart }   [EK] 28v3

Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel;
there is no secret that they can hide from thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v4

With thy wisdom and with thine understanding
thou hast gotten thee riches,
and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures;

{ heart }   [EK] 28v5

By thy great wisdom and by thy trade
hast thou increased thy riches,
and thine heart is lifted up because of thy riches.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v6

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because thou hast set thine heart
as the heart of GOD,

{ heart }   [EK] 28v7

Behold,
therefore, I will bring strangers upon thee,
the terrible of the nations;
and they shall draw their swords
against the beauty of thy wisdom,
and they shall defile thy brightness.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v8

They shall bring thee down to the pit,
and thou shalt die the deaths of them
that are slain in the midst of the seas.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v9

Wilt thou yet say
before him that slayeth thee,

 ‘I am a god?’ 

But thou shalt be a man, and not GOD,
in the hand of him that slayeth thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v10

Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised
by the hand of foreigners;
for I have spoken it,
saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 28 v11-19

{ heart }   [EK] 28v11

Moreover, the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 28v12

Son of man,
take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyre,
and say unto him,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Thou sealest up the sum,
full of wisdom and perfect in beauty’.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v13

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of GOD;
every precious stone was thy covering,
the sardius, topaz, and the diamond,
the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper,
the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle,
and gold;
the workmanship of thy timbrels and of thy pipes
was prepared in thee
in the day that thou wast created.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v14

Thou art the anointed Cherub that covereth:
and I have set thee so;
thou wast upon the holy mountain of GOD;
thou hast walked up and down
in the midst of the stones of fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v15

Thou wast perfect in thy ways
from the day that thou wast created,
till iniquity was found in thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v16

By the multitude of thy merchandise
they have filled the midst of thee with violence,
and thou hast sinned;
therefore, I will cast thee as profane
out of the mountain of GOD,
and I will destroy thee, O covering Cherub,
from the midst of the stones of fire.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v17

Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty;
thou hast corrupted thy wisdom
by reason of thy brightness;
I will cast thee to the ground,
I will lay thee before kings,
that they may behold thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v18

Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries
by the multitude of thine iniquities,
by the iniquity of thy trade;
therefore will I bring forth a fire
from the midst of thee;
it shall devour thee,
and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth
in the sight of all them that behold thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 28v19

All they that know

 ‘Thee’ 

Among the people
shall be astonished at thee;
thou shalt be a terror,
and never shalt thou be any more.

Again the word of the LORD

set thy face against Sidon,
and prophesy against it,

And say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I AM against thee, O Sidon;
and I will be glorified in the midst of thee;
and they shall know

That I AM the LORD,

and shall be sanctified in her’.

For I will send into her pestilence,
and blood into her streets,
and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her
by the sword upon her on every side;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

nor any grieving thorn
of all that are round about them that despised them;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD GOD’.

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

When I shall have gathered the house of Israel
from the people among whom they are scattered,
and shall be sanctified in them
in the sight of the heathen,
then shall they dwell in their land
that I have given to MY servant, Jacob.

And they shall dwell safely therein,
and shall build houses, and plant vineyards;

saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 29v2

Son of man,
set thy face against Pharaoh, king of Egypt,
and prophesy against him, and against all Egypt.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v3

Speak, and say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I AM against thee, Pharaoh, king of Egypt,

that lieth in the midst of his rivers,
which hath said,

My river is mine own, and I have made it
for myself’.

But I will put hooks in thy jaws,
and I will cause the fish of thy rivers
to stick unto thy scales,
and I will bring thee up out of the midst of thy rivers,
and all the fish of thy rivers
shall stick unto thy scales.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v5

And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness,
thee and all the fish of thy rivers;
thou shalt fall upon the open fields;
thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered;
I have given thee for meat to the beasts of the field
and to the fowls of the heaven.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v6

And all the inhabitants of Egypt
shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

Because they have been a staff of reed
to the house of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v7

When they took hold of thee by thy hand,
thou diddest break, and rend all their shoulder;
and when they leaned upon thee,
thou diddest break,
and madest all their loins to be at a stand.

¶ Ezekiel 29 v8-12

{ heart }   [EK] 29v8

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I will bring a sword upon thee,
and cut off man and beast out of thee.

And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD;’ 

Because he hath said,

The river is mine, and I have made it.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v10

Behold,
therefore I AM against thee, and against thy rivers,
and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste
and desolate,
from the tower of Seveneh
even unto the border of Ethiopia.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v11

No foot of man shall pass through it,
nor foot of beast shall pass through it,
neither shall it be inhabited forty years.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v12

And I will make the land of Egypt desolate
in the midst of the countries that are desolate,
and her cities
among the cities that are laid waste
shall be desolate forty years;

and will disperse them through the countries.

Yet thus saith the LORD GOD:
At the end of forty years

And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt,
and will cause them to return
into the land of Pathros,
into the land of their habitation;
and they shall be there a base kingdom.

It shall be the basest of the kingdoms;
neither shall it exalt itself any more
above the nations;
for I will diminish them,
that they shall no more rule over the nations.

And it shall be no more the confidence
of the house of Israel,
which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance,
when they shall look after them;
but they shall know

Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon,
caused his army to serve a great service
against Tyre;
every head was made bald,
and every shoulder was peeled;
yet had he no wages, nor his army, for Tyre,
for the service that he had served against it.

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I will give the land of Egypt
unto Nebuchadrezzar, king of Babylon,
and he shall take her multitude,
and take her spoil, and take her prey,
and it shall be the wages for his army.

{ heart }   [EK] 29v20

I have given him the land of Egypt
for his labor wherewith he served against it,
because they wrought for ME,


Saith the LORD GOD.

Thus saith the LORD:

They also that uphold Egypt shall fall,

And they shall be desolate
in the midst of the countries that are desolate,
and her cities
shall be in the midst of the cities that are wasted.

And they shall know

When I have set a fire in Egypt,
and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.

In that day
shall messengers go forth from ME in ships
to make the careless Ethiopians afraid,
and great pain shall come upon them,
as in the day of Egypt;
for lo, it cometh.

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD;

Behold, I AM against Pharaoh, king of Egypt,
and will break his arms,
the strong, and that which was broken,

came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 31v2

Son of man,
speak unto Pharaoh, king of Egypt,
and to his multitude,

 ‘Whom art thou like in thy greatness’?

{ heart }   [EK] 31v3

Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon
with fair branches, and with a shadowing shroud,
and of an high stature;
and his top was among the thick boughs.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v4

The waters made him great;
the deep set him up on high
with her rivers running round about his plants,
and sent out her little rivers
unto all the trees of the field.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v5

Therefore, his height was exalted
above all the trees of the field,
and his boughs were multiplied,
and his branches became long
because of the multitude of waters,
when he shot forth.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v6

All the fowls of heaven
made their nests in his boughs,
and under his branches
did all the beasts of the field bring forth their young,
and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v7

Thus was he fair in his greatness,
in the length of his branches;
for his root was by great waters.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v8

The cedars in the garden of GOD
could not hide him;
the fir trees were not like his boughs,
and the chestnut trees were not like his branches;
nor any tree in the garden of GOD
was like unto him in his beauty.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v9

I have made him fair
by the multitude of his branches;
so that all the trees of Eden,
that were in the garden of GOD,
envied him.

¶ Ezekiel 31 v10-14

{ heart }   [EK] 31v10

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because thou hast lifted up thyself in height,
and he hath shot up his top
among the thick boughs,
and his heart is lifted up in his height,

{ heart }   [EK] 31v11

I have, therefore, delivered him
into the hand of the mighty one of the heathen;
he shall surely deal with him;
I have driven him out for his wickedness.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v12

And strangers,
the terrible of the nations have cut him off,
and have left him;
upon the mountains and in all the valleys
his branches are fallen,
and his boughs are broken
by all the rivers of the land;
and all the people of the earth
are gone down from his shadow,
and have left him.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v13

Upon his ruin
shall all the fowls of the heaven remain,
and all the beasts of the field
shall be upon his branches:

{ heart }   [EK] 31v14

To the end

 ‘That none of all the trees by the waters
exalt themselves for their height,
neither shoot up their top
among the thick boughs,
neither their trees stand up in their height,

For they are all delivered unto death,
to the nether parts of the earth,
in the midst of the children of men,
with them that go down to the pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v15

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

In the day when he went down to the grave,
I caused a mourning,
I covered the deep for him,
and I restrained the floods thereof,
and the great waters were stayed;
and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him,
and all the trees of the field fainted for him.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v16

I made the nations to shake
at the sound of his fall,
when I cast him down to hell
with them that descend into the pit;
and all the trees of Eden,
the choice and best of Lebanon,
all that drink water,
shall be comforted in the nether parts of the earth.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v17

They also went down into hell with him
unto them that be slain with the sword;
and they that were his arm,
that dwelt under his shadow
in the midst of the heathen.

{ heart }   [EK] 31v18

To whom art thou thus like in glory
and in greatness
among the trees of Eden?
yet shalt thou be brought down
with the trees of Eden
unto the nether parts of the earth;
thou shalt lie in the midst of the uncircumcised
with them that be slain by the sword:
this is Pharaoh and all his multitude,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 32 v1-16

{ heart }   [EK] 32v1

And it came to pass

In the twelfth year, in the twelfth month,
in the first day of the month,

That the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 32v2

Son of man,
take up a lamentation for Pharaoh, king of Egypt,
and say unto him,

 ‘Thou art like a young lion of the nations,
and thou art as a whale in the seas;
and thou camest forth with thy rivers,
and troubledst the waters with thy feet,
and fouledst their rivers’.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v3

Thus saith the LORD GOD:
I will therefore spread out MY net over thee
with a company of many peoples,
and they shall bring thee up in MY net.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v4

Then will I leave thee upon the land,
I will cast thee forth upon the open field,
and will cause all the fowls of the heaven
to remain upon thee,
and I will fill the beasts of the whole earth
with thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v5

And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains,
and fill the valleys with thy height.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v6

I will also water with thy blood
the land wherein thou swimmest,
even to the mountains,
and the rivers shall be full of thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v7

And when I shall put thee out,
I will cover the heaven,
and make the stars thereof dark;
I will cover the sun with a cloud,
and the moon shall not give her light.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v8

All the bright lights of heaven
will I make dark over thee,
and set darkness upon thy land,
saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v9

I will also vex the hearts of many peoples,
when I shall bring thy destruction
among the nations,
into the countries which thou hast not known.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v10

Yea, I will make many peoples amazed at thee,
and their kings shall be horribly afraid for thee,
when I shall brandish MY sword before them;
and they shall tremble at every moment,
every man for his own life,
in the day of thy fall.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v11

For thus saith the LORD GOD:
The sword of the king of Babylon
shall come upon thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v12

By the swords of the mighty
will I cause thy multitude to fall,
the terrible of the nations, all of them;
and they shall spoil the pomp of Egypt,
and all the multitude thereof shall be destroyed.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v13

I will destroy also all the beasts thereof
from beside the great waters;
neither shall the foot of man trouble them any more,
nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v14

Then will I make their waters deep,
and cause their rivers to run like oil,
saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v15

When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate,
and the country shall be destitute
of that whereof it was full,
when I shall smite all them that dwell therein,
then shall they know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v16

This is the lamentation
wherewith they shall lament her;
the daughters of the nations shall lament her:
they shall lament for her, even for Egypt,
and for all her multitude,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 32 v17-32

{ heart }   [EK] 32v17

It came to pass also

In the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day
of the month,

That the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 32v18

Son of man,
howl for the multitude of Egypt,
and cast them down,
even her, and the daughters of the famous nations,
unto the nether parts of the earth,
with them that go down into the pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v19

Whom doest thou pass in beauty?
go down,
and be thou laid with the uncircumcised.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v20

They shall fall in the midst
of them that are slain by the sword:
she is delivered to the sword;
draw her and all her multitudes.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v21

The strong among the mighty
shall speak to him out of the midst of hell
with them that help him;
they are gone down,
they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v22

Asshur is there, and all her company;
his graves are about him;
all of them slain, fallen by the sword:

{ heart }   [EK] 32v23

Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit,
and her company is round about her grave;
all of them slain, fallen by the sword,
which caused terror in the land of the living.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v24

There is Elam, and all her multitude
round about her grave,
all of them slain, fallen by the sword,
which are gone down uncircumcised
into the nether parts of the earth,
which caused their terror in the land of the living;
yet have they borne their shame
with them that go down to the pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v25

They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain,
with all her multitude;
her graves are round about him;
all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword;
though their terror was caused
in the land of the living,
yet have they borne their shame
with them that go down to the pit;
he is put in the midst of them that be slain.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v26

There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude;
her graves are round about him;
all of them uncircumcised, slain by the sword,
though they caused their terror
in the land of the living.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v27

And they shall not lie with the mighty
that are fallen of the uncircumcised,
which are gone down to hell
with their weapons of war:
and they have laid their swords under their heads,
but their iniquities shall be upon their bones,
though they were the terror of the mighty
in the land of the living.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v28

Yea, thou shalt be broken
in the midst of the uncircumcised,
and shalt lie with them
that are slain with the sword.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v29

There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes,
which with their might
are laid by them that were slain by the sword;
they shall lie with the uncircumcised,
and with them that go down to the pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v30

There be the princes of the north,
all of them, and all the Sidonians,
which are gone down with the slain;
with their terror they are ashamed of their might,
and they lie uncircumcised with them
that be slain by the sword,
and bear their shame with them
that go down to the pit.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v31

Pharaoh shall see them,
and shall be comforted over all his multitude,
even Pharaoh and all his army
slain by the sword,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 32v32

For I have caused MY terror
in the land of the living,
and he shall be laid
in the midst of the uncircumcised
with them that are slain with the sword,
even Pharaoh and all his multitude,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 33 v1-9

{ heart }   [EK] 33v1

Again the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 33v2

Son of man,
speak to the children of thy people,
and say unto them,

 ‘When I bring the sword upon a land,
if the people of the land take a man of their borders,
and set him for their watchman’;

{ heart }   [EK] 33v3

If, when he seeth the sword come upon the land,
he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;

{ heart }   [EK] 33v4

Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet,
and taketh not warning;
if the sword come, and take him away,
his blood shall be upon his own head.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v5

He heard the sound of the trumpet,
and took not warning;
his blood shall be upon him:
but he that taketh warning shall deliver his soul.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v6

But if the watchman see the sword come,
and blow not the trumpet,
and the people be not warned;
if the sword come,
and take any person from among them,
he is taken away in his iniquity;
but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v7

So thou, O son of man,
I have set thee a watchman
unto the house of Israel;
therefore, thou shalt hear the word at MY mouth,
and warn them from ME.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v8

When I say unto the wicked,

 ‘O wicked man, thou shalt surely die;’ 

If thou doest not speak
to warn the wicked from his way,
that wicked man shall die in his iniquity;
but his blood will I require at thine hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v9

Nevertheless,
if thou warn the wicked of his way
to turn from it:
if he do not turn from his way,
he shall die in his iniquity;
but thou hast delivered thy soul.

¶ Ezekiel 33 v10-20

{ heart }   [EK] 33v10

Therefore, O thou son of man,
speak unto the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus ye speak, saying,

If our transgressions and our sins be upon us,
and we pine away in them,
how should we then live’?

{ heart }   [EK] 33v11

Say unto them,

 ‘As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked;
but that the wicked turn from his way and live;
turn ye,
turn ye from your evil ways;
for why will ye die, O house of Israel’?

{ heart }   [EK] 33v12

Therefore, thou son of man,
say unto the children of thy people,

 ‘The righteousness of the righteous
shall not deliver him
in the day of his transgression;
as for the wickedness of the wicked,
he shall not fall thereby
in the day that he turneth from his wickedness;
neither shall the righteous be able to live
for his righteousness
in the day that he sinneth’.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v13

When I shall say to the righteous,

 ‘That he shall surely live;’ 

If he trust to his own righteousness,
and commit iniquity,
all his righteousnesses shall not be remembered,
but for his iniquity that he hath committed,
he shall die for it.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v14

Again, when I say unto the wicked,

 ‘Thou shalt surely die;’ 

If he turn from his sin,
and do that which is lawful and right;

{ heart }   [EK] 33v15

If the wicked restore the pledge,
give again that which he had robbed,
walk in the statutes of life,
without committing iniquity;
he shall surely live, he shall not die.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v16

None of his sins that he hath committed
shall be mentioned unto him;
he hath done that which is lawful and right;
he shall surely live.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v17

Yet the children of thy people
say,

 ‘The way of the LORD is not equal;’ 

But, as for them, their way is not equal.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v18

When the righteous
turneth from his righteousness,
and committeth iniquity,
he shall even die thereby.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v19

But if the wicked turn from his wickedness,
and do that which is lawful and right,
he shall live thereby.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v20

Yet ye say,

 ‘The way of the LORD is not equal,’ 

O ye house of Israel;
I will judge you every one after his ways.

¶ Ezekiel 33 v21-22

{ heart }   [EK] 33v21

And it came to pass

In the twelfth year of our captivity,
in the tenth month,
in the fifth day of the month,

That one that had escaped out of Jerusalem
came unto me,
saying,

 ‘The city is smitten’.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v22

Now the HAND of the LORD was upon me
in the evening,
afore he that was escaped came,
and had opened my mouth,
until he came to me in the morning;
and my mouth was opened,
and I was no more dumb.

¶ Ezekiel 33 v23-29

{ heart }   [EK] 33v23

Then the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 33v24

Son of man,
they that inhabit those wastes of the land of Israel
speak, saying,

 ‘Abraham was one, and he inherited the land;
but we are many;
the land is given us for inheritance’.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v25

Wherefore, say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Ye eat with the blood,
and lift up your eyes toward your idols,
and shed blood;
and shall ye possess the land’?

{ heart }   [EK] 33v26

Ye stand upon your sword,
ye work abomination,
and ye defile every one his neighbor's wife;
and shall ye possess the land?

{ heart }   [EK] 33v27

Say thou thus unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
As I live, surely they that are in the wastes
shall fall by the sword,
and him that is in the open field
will I give to the beasts to be devoured,
and they that be in the forts and in the caves
shall die of the pestilence’.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v28

For I will lay the land most desolate,
and the pomp of her strength shall cease;
and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate,
that none shall pass through.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v29

Then shall they know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I have laid the land most desolate
because of all their abominations
which they have committed.

¶ Ezekiel 33 v30-33

{ heart }   [EK] 33v30

Also, thou son of man,
the children of thy people
still are talking against thee
by the walls and in the doors of the houses,
and speak one to another, every one to his brother,
saying,

 ‘Come, I pray you,
and hear what is the word
that cometh forth from the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v31

And they come unto thee as the people cometh,
and they sit before thee as MY people,
and they hear thy words, but they will not do them;
for with their mouth they show much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.

{ heart }   [EK] 33v32

And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song
of one that hath a pleasant voice,
and can play well on an instrument;
for they hear thy words, but they do them not.

And when this cometh to pass
(lo, it will come),
then shall they know

 ‘That a prophet hath been among them’.

¶ Ezekiel 34 v1-10

{ heart }   [EK] 34v1

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 34v2

Son of man,
prophesy against the shepherds of Israel,
prophesy, and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD
unto the shepherds:
Woe be to the shepherds of Israel
that do feed themselves:
should not the shepherds feed the flocks’?

{ heart }   [EK] 34v3

Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool,
ye kill them that are fed;
but ye feed not the flock?

{ heart }   [EK] 34v4

The diseased have ye not strengthened,
neither have ye healed that which was sick,
neither have ye bound up that which was broken,
neither have ye brought again
that which was driven away,
neither have ye sought that which was lost,
but with force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v5

And they were scattered,
because there is no shepherd;
and they became meat
to all the beasts of the field,
when they were scattered.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v6

MY sheep wandered through all the mountains,
and upon every high hill;
yea, MY flock was scattered
upon all the face of the earth,
and none did search or seek after them.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v7

Therefore, ye shepherds,
hear the word of the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v8

As I live, saith the LORD GOD,
Surely because MY flock became a prey,
and MY flock became meat
to every beast of the field,
because there was no shepherd,
neither did MY shepherds search for MY flock,
but the shepherds fed themselves,
and fed not MY flock;

{ heart }   [EK] 34v9

Therefore, O ye shepherds,
hear the word of the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v10

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I AM against the shepherds;
and I will require MY flock at their hand,
and cause them to cease from feeding the flock;
neither shall the shepherds feed themselves
any more;
for I will deliver MY flock from their mouth,
that they may not be meat for them.

¶ Ezekiel 34 v11-16

{ heart }   [EK] 34v11

For thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I, even I, will both search MY sheep,
and seek them out.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v12

As a shepherd seeketh out his flock
in the day
that he is among his sheep that are scattered;
so will I seek out MY sheep,
and will deliver them out of all places
where they have been scattered
in the cloudy and dark day.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v13

And I will bring them out from the people,
and gather them from the countries,
and will bring them to their own land,
and feed them upon the mountains of Israel
by the rivers,
and in all the inhabited places of the country.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v14

I will feed them in a good pasture,
and upon the high mountains of Israel
shall their fold be;
there shall they lie in a good fold,
and in a fat pasture
shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v15

I will feed MY flock,
and I will cause them to lie down,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v16

I will seek that which was lost,
and bring again that which was driven away,
and will bind up that which was broken,
and will strengthen that which was sick;
but I will destroy the fat and the strong;
I will feed them with judgment.

¶ Ezekiel 34 v17-22

{ heart }   [EK] 34v17

And as for you, O MY flock,

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Behold, I judge between cattle and cattle,
between the rams and the he goats.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v18

Seemeth it a small thing unto you
to have eaten up the good pasture,
but ye must tread down with your feet
the residue of your pastures?
and to have drunk of the deep waters,
but ye must foul the residue with your feet?

{ heart }   [EK] 34v19

And as for MY flock,
they eat
that which ye have trodden with your feet;
and they drink
that which ye have fouled with your feet.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v20

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD
unto them:


Behold, I, even I, will judge
between the fat cattle and between the lean cattle.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v21

Because ye have thrust
with side and with shoulder,
and pushed all the diseased with your horns,
till ye have scattered them abroad,

{ heart }   [EK] 34v22

Therefore will I save MY flock,
and they shall no more be a prey;
and I will judge between cattle and cattle.

¶ Ezekiel 34 v23-31

{ heart }   [EK] 34v23

And I will set up one SHEPHERD over them,
and HE shall feed them, even MY servant David;
HE shall feed them,
and HE shall be their SHEPHERD.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v24

And I, the LORD, will be their GOD,
and MY servant, David, a prince among them;
I the LORD have spoken it.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v25

And I will make with them a covenant of peace,
and will cause the evil beasts to cease
out of the land;
and they shall dwell safely in the wilderness,
and sleep in the woods.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v26

And I will make them
and the places round about MY hill
a blessing;
and I will cause the shower to come down
in his season;
there shall be showers of blessing.

{ heart }   [EK] 34v27

And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit,
and the earth shall yield her increase,
and they shall be safe in their land,
and shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I have broken the bands of their yoke,
and delivered them out of the hand
of those that served themselves of them.

And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen,
neither shall the beast of the land devour them,
but they shall dwell safely,
and none shall make them afraid.

And I will raise up for them a plant of renown,
and they shall be no more consumed with hunger
in the land,
neither bear the shame of the heathen any more.

Thus shall they know

 ‘That I, the LORD their GOD,
AM with them,
and that they, even the house of Israel,
are MY people’,

And say unto it,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, O Mount Seir, I AM against thee,
and I will stretch out MINE hand against thee,
and I will make thee most desolate’.

{ heart }   [EK] 35v4

I will lay thy cities waste,
and thou shalt be desolate,
and thou shalt know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 35v5

Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred,
and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel
by the force of the sword
in the time of their calamity,
in the time that their iniquity had an end:

{ heart }   [EK] 35v6

Therefore, as I live, saith the LORD GOD,
I will prepare thee unto blood,
and blood shall pursue thee;
since thou hast not hated blood,
even blood shall pursue thee.

¶ Ezekiel 35 v7-13

{ heart }   [EK] 35v7

Thus will I make Mount Seir most desolate,
and cut off from it him that passeth out
and him that returneth.

And I will fill his mountains with his slain men;
in thy hills, and in thy valleys,
and in all thy rivers,
shall they fall that are slain with the sword.

I will make thee perpetual desolations,
and thy cities shall not return;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

Because thou hast said,

 ‘These two nations and these two countries
shall be mine,
and we will possess it;
whereas the LORD was there’;

{ heart }   [EK] 35v11

Therefore, as I live, saith the LORD GOD,
I will even do according to thine anger,
and according to thine envy which thou hast used
out of thy hatred against them;
and I will make MYSELF known among them,
when I have judged thee.

And thou shalt know

As thou diddest rejoice
at the inheritance of the house of Israel,

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Surely in the fire of MY jealousy
have I spoken against the residue of the heathen,

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

Because they say unto you,

 ‘Thou, land, devourest up men,
and hast bereaved thy nations’,

{ heart }   [EK] 36v14

Therefore,
thou shalt devour men no more,
neither bereave thy nations any more,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v15

Neither will I cause men to hear in thee
the shame of the heathen any more,
neither shalt thou bear
the reproach of the peoples
any more,
neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall
any more,


Saith the LORD GOD.

¶ Ezekiel 36 v16-32

{ heart }   [EK] 36v16

Moreover, the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 36v17

Son of man,
when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land,
they defiled it
by their own way, and by their doings;
their way was before ME
as the uncleanness of a removed woman.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v18

Wherefore, I poured MY fury upon them
for the blood that they had shed upon the land,
and for their idols wherewith they had polluted it;

{ heart }   [EK] 36v19

And I scattered them among the heathen,
and they were dispersed through the countries;
according to their way and according to their doings
I judged them.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v20

And when they entered unto the heathen,
whither they went,
they profaned MY holy NAME,
when they said to them,

 ‘These are the people of the LORD,
and are gone forth out of HIS land’.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v21

But I had pity for MINE holy NAME,
WHICH the house of Israel had profaned
among the heathen, whither they went.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v22

Therefore, say
unto the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel,
but for MINE holy NAME'S sake,
WHICH ye have profaned
among the heathen, whither ye went’.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v23

And I will sanctify MY great NAME,
WHICH was profaned among the heathen,
WHICH ye have profaned in the midst of them;
and the heathen shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’,


Saith the LORD GOD

When I shall be sanctified in you
before their eyes.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v24

For I will take you from among the heathen,
and gather you out of all countries,
and will bring you into your own land.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v25

Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you,
and ye shall be clean;
from all your filthiness, and from all your idols,
will I cleanse you.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v26

A new heart also will I give you,
and a new spirit will I put within you;
and I will take away the stony heart
out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v27

And I will put MY SPIRIT within you,
and cause you to walk in MY statutes,
and ye shall keep MY judgments, and do them.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v28

And ye shall dwell in the land
that I gave to your fathers;
and ye shall be MY people,
and I will be your GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v29

I will also save you from all your uncleannesses;
and I will call for the corn, and will increase it,
and lay no famine upon you.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v30

And I will multiply the fruit of the tree,
and the increase of the field,
that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine
among the heathen.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v31

Then shall ye remember
your own evil ways, and your doings
that were not good,
and shall loathe yourselves in your own sight
for your iniquities and for your abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v32

Not for your sakes do I this,

Saith the LORD GOD,

Be it known unto you;
be ashamed and confounded for your own ways,
O house of Israel.

¶ Ezekiel 36 v33-36

{ heart }   [EK] 36v33

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

In the day that I shall have cleansed you
from all your iniquities,
I will also cause you to dwell in the cities,
and the wastes shall be builded.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v34

And the desolate land shall be tilled,
whereas it lay desolate
in the sight of all that passed by.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v35

And they shall say,

 ‘This land that was desolate
is become like the garden of Eden;
and the waste and desolate and ruined cities
are become fenced, and are inhabited’.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v36

Then the heathen that are left round about you
shall know

 ‘That I the LORD build the ruined places,
and plant that which was desolate:’ 

I the LORD have spoken it,
and I will do it.

¶ Ezekiel 36 v37-38

{ heart }   [EK] 36v37

Thus saith the LORD GOD,
I will yet for this
be enquired of by the house of Israel,
to do it for them;
I will increase them with men like a flock.

{ heart }   [EK] 36v38

As the holy flock,
as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn feasts,
so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of men;
and they shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

» Ezekiel 37

¶ Ezekiel 37 v1-6

{ heart }   [EK] 37v1

The HAND of the LORD was upon me,
and carried me out in the SPIRIT of the LORD,
and set me down in the midst of the valley
which was full of bones,

{ heart }   [EK] 37v2

And caused me to pass by them round about;
and, behold, there were very many in the open valley;
and, lo, they were very dry.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v3

And HE said unto me,

Son of man,
can these bones live?


And I answered,
O LORD GOD, thou knowest.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v4

Again HE said unto me,

Prophesy upon these bones,
and say unto them,

 ‘O ye dry bones,
hear the word of the LORD’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v5

Thus saith the LORD GOD
unto these bones,
Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you,
and ye shall live.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v6

And I will lay sinews upon you,
and will bring up flesh upon you,
and cover you with skin,
and put breath in you, and ye shall live;
and ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD’.

¶ Ezekiel 37 v7-10

{ heart }   [EK] 37v7

So I prophesied as I was commanded;
and as I prophesied,
there was a noise, and behold a shaking,
and the bones came together, bone to his bone.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v8

And when I beheld,
lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them,
and the skin covered them above;
but there was no breath in them.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v9

Then said HE unto me,

Prophesy unto the wind,
prophesy son of man, and say to the wind,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Come from the four winds, O breath,
and breathe upon these slain, that they may live’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v10

So I prophesied as HE commanded me,
and the breath came into them, and they lived,
and stood up upon their feet,
an exceeding great army.

¶ Ezekiel 37 v11-14

{ heart }   [EK] 37v11

Then HE said unto me,

Son of man,
these bones are the whole house of Israel;
behold, they say,

 ‘Our bones are dried, and our hope is lost;
we are cut off for our parts’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v12

Therefore, prophesy and say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD;
Behold, O MY people,
I will open your graves,
and cause you to come up out of your graves,
and bring you into the land of Israel’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v13

And ye shall know

 ‘That I AM the LORD,’ 

When I have opened your graves,
O MY people,
and brought you up out of your graves,

{ heart }   [EK] 37v14

And shall put MY SPIRIT in you,
and ye shall live,
and I shall place you in your own land;
then shall ye know

 ‘That I the LORD have spoken it,
and performed it’,


Saith the LORD.

¶ Ezekiel 37 v15-28

{ heart }   [EK] 37v15

The word of the LORD
came again unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 37v16

Moreover, thou son of man,
take thee one stick, and write upon it,

 ‘For Judah,
and for the children of Israel his companions;’ 

Then take another stick, and write upon it,

 ‘For Joseph the stick of Ephraim,
and for all the house of Israel his companions’;

{ heart }   [EK] 37v17

And join them one to another into one stick,
and they shall become one in thine hand.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v18

And when the children of thy people
shall speak unto thee,
saying,

 ‘Wilt thou not show us
what thou meanest by these’?

{ heart }   [EK] 37v19

Say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I will take the stick of Joseph,
which is in the hand of Ephraim,
and the tribes of Israel, his fellows,
and will put them with him,
even with the stick of Judah,
and make them one stick,
and they shall be one in MINE hand’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v20

And the sticks whereon thou writest
shall be in thine hand before their eyes.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v21

And say unto them,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I will take the children of Israel
from among the heathen, whither they be gone,
and will gather them on every side,
and bring them into their own land’.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v22

And I will make them one nation in the land
upon the mountains of Israel;
and one KING shall be king to them all;
and they shall be no more two nations,
neither shall they be divided into two kingdoms
any more at all.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v23

Neither shall they defile themselves any more
with their idols,
nor with their detestable things,
nor with any of their transgressions,
but I will save them out of all their dwelling places,
wherein they have sinned,
and will cleanse them;
so shall they be MY people,
and I will be their GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v24

And David, MY servant, shall be king over them;
and they all shall have one SHEPHERD;
they shall also walk in MY judgments,
and observe MY statutes, and do them.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v25

And they shall dwell in the land
that I have given unto Jacob, MY servant,
wherein your fathers have dwelt;
and they shall dwell therein,
even they, and their children,
and their children's children
forever;
and MY servant, David, shall be their prince forever.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v26

Moreover,
I will make a covenant of peace with them;
it shall be an everlasting covenant with them;
and I will place them and multiply them,
and will set MY sanctuary in the midst of them
for evermore.

{ heart }   [EK] 37v27

MY tabernacle also shall be with them;
yea, I will be their GOD,
and they shall be MY people.

And the heathen shall know

 ‘That I, the LORD, do sanctify Israel,’ 

When MY sanctuary
shall be in the midst of them for evermore.

¶ Ezekiel 38 v1-9

{ heart }   [EK] 38v1

And the word of the LORD
came unto me,
saying,

{ heart }   [EK] 38v2

Son of man,
set thy face against Gog, of the land of Magog,
the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal,
and prophesy against him,

{ heart }   [EK] 38v3

And say,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
Behold, I AM against thee, O Gog,
the chief prince of Meshech and Tubal’,

{ heart }   [EK] 38v4

And I will turn thee back,
and put hooks into thy jaws,
and I will bring thee forth,
and all thine army, horses and horsemen,
all of them clothed with all sorts of armor,
even a great company with bucklers and shields,
all of them handling swords:

{ heart }   [EK] 38v5

Persia, Ethiopia, and Libya with them;
all of them with shield and helmet;

{ heart }   [EK] 38v6

Gomer, and all his bands;
the house of Togarmah of the north quarters,
and all his bands;
and many people with thee.

{ heart }   [EK] 38v7

Be thou prepared, and prepare for thyself,
thou, and all thy company
that are assembled unto thee,
and be thou a guard unto them.

{ heart }   [EK] 38v8

After many days thou shalt be visited;
in the latter years
thou shalt come into the land
that is brought back from the sword,
and is gathered out of many peoples,
against the mountains of Israel,
which have been always waste;
but it is brought forth out of the nations,
and they shall dwell safely, all of them.

{ heart }   [EK] 38v9

Thou shalt ascend and come like a storm;
thou shalt be like a cloud to cover the land,
thou, and all thy bands,
and many peoples with thee.

¶ Ezekiel 38 v10-17

{ heart }   [EK] 38v10

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

It shall also come to pass,
that at the same time
shall things come into thy mind,
and thou shalt think

 ‘An evil thought’;

{ heart }   [EK] 38v11

And thou shalt say,

 ‘I will go up to the land of unwalled villages;
I will go to them that are at rest, that dwell safely,
all of them dwelling without walls,
and having neither bars nor gates,

{ heart }   [EK] 38v12

To take a spoil, and to take a prey;
to turn thine hand upon the desolate places
that are now inhabited,
and upon the people that are gathered
out of the nations,
which have gotten cattle and goods,
that dwell in the midst of the land.

{ heart }   [EK] 38v13

Sheba, and Dedan, and the merchants
of Tarshish,
with all the young lions thereof,
shall say unto thee,

 ‘Art thou come to take a spoil?
Hast thou gathered thy company to take a prey,
to carry away silver and gold,
to take away cattle and goods,
to take a great spoil’?

{ heart }   [EK] 38v14

Therefore, son of man,
prophesy and say unto Gog,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
In that day
when MY people of Israel dwelleth safely,
shalt thou not know it’?

{ heart }   [EK] 38v15

And thou shalt come from thy place
out of the north parts,
thou, and many people with thee,
all of them riding upon horses,
a great company, and a mighty army;

{ heart }   [EK] 38v16

And thou shalt come up against MY people
of Israel,
as a cloud to cover the land;
it shall be in the latter days,
and I will bring thee against MY land,
that the heathen may know

 ‘ME,’ 

When I shall be sanctified in thee, O Gog,
before their eyes.

Thus saith the LORD GOD;

Art thou he of whom I have spoken in old time
by MY servants, the prophets of Israel,
which prophesied in those days many years

 ‘That I would bring thee against them’?

For in MY jealousy and in the fire of MY wrath
have I spoken,
surely in that day there shall be a great shaking
in the land of Israel,

So that the fishes of the sea,
and the fowls of the heaven,
and the beasts of the field,

shall shake at MY presence,
and the mountains shall be thrown down,
and the steep places shall fall,
and every wall shall fall to the ground.

And I will call for a sword against him
throughout all MY mountains,


Saith the LORD GOD;

Every man's sword shall be against his brother.

And I will plead against him
with pestilence and with blood;
and I will rain upon him and upon his bands,
and upon the many people that are with him,
an overflowing rain,
and great hailstones, fire, and brimstone.

Behold, I AM against thee, O Gog,

And I will turn thee back,
and leave but the sixth part of thee,
and will cause thee to come up
from the north parts,

And I will smite thy bow out of thy left hand,
and will cause thine arrows
to fall out of thy right hand.

thou, and all thy bands,
and the peoples that is with thee;
I will give thee
unto the ravenous birds of every sort,
and to the beasts of the field
to be devoured.

Thou shalt fall upon the open field;

shall go forth,
and shall set on fire and burn the weapons,
both the shields and the bucklers,
the bows and the arrows,
and the handstaves and the spears,

So that they shall take no wood out of the field,
neither cut down any out of the forests;

and they shall spoil those that spoiled them,
and rob those that robbed them,


Saith the LORD GOD.

And it shall come to pass
at that day, that I will give unto Gog
a place there of graves in Israel,
the valley of the passengers on the east of the sea;
and it shall stop the noses of the passengers,
and there shall they bury Gog and all his multitude;
and they shall call it

 ‘The Valley of Hamon-gog’.

And seven months shall the house of Israel
be burying of them,
that they may cleanse the land.

Yea, all the people of the land
shall bury them;
and it shall be to them a renown
the day that I shall be glorified,


Saith the LORD GOD.

And they shall sever out men
of continual employment,
passing through the land
to bury with the help of the passengers,
those that remain upon the face of the earth,
to cleanse it;
after the end of seven months
shall they search.

And the passengers that pass through the land,
when any seeth a man's bone,
then shall he set up a sign by it,
till the buriers have buried it
in the Valley of Hamon-gog.

And also the name of the city shall be

 ‘Hamonah:’ 

Thus shall they cleanse the land.

thus saith the LORD GOD:
Speak unto every feathered fowl,

gather yourselves on every side to MY sacrifice
that I do sacrifice for you,
even a great sacrifice upon the mountains of Israel,
that ye may eat flesh and drink blood’.

Ye shall eat the flesh of the mighty,
and drink the blood of the princes of the earth,
of rams, of lambs, and of goats,
of bullocks,
all of them fatlings of Bashan.

And ye shall eat fat till ye be full,
and drink blood till ye be drunken,
of MY sacrifice
which I have sacrificed for you.

with horses and chariots,
with mighty men, and with all men of war,

for their iniquity;
because they trespassed against ME,

According to their uncleanness and according to their transgressions
have I done unto them,
and hidden MY face from them.

Therefore, thus saith the LORD GOD:

Now will I bring again the captivity of Jacob,
and have mercy upon the whole house of Israel,
and will be jealous for MY holy NAME,

After that they have borne their shame,
and all their trespasses
whereby they have trespassed against ME,

In the beginning of the year,
in the tenth day of the month,
in the fourteenth year

After that the city was smitten,
in the selfsame day,
the HAND of the LORD was upon me,
and brought me thither.

In the visions of GOD
brought HE me into the land of Israel,
and set me upon a very high mountain,
by which was as the frame of a city on the south.

And HE brought me thither,
and, behold, there was a MAN,
WHOSE appearance was like
the appearance of brass,
with a line of flax in HIS hand, and a measuring reed;
and HE stood in the gate.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v4

And the MAN said unto me,

Son of man,
behold with thine eyes, and hear with thine ears,
and set thine heart upon all that I shall show thee;
for to the intent

 ‘That I might show them unto thee

round about,
and in the MAN'S hand
a measuring reed of six cubits long
by the cubit and an handbreadth;
so HE measured the breadth of the building,
one reed,
and the height, one reed.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v6

Then came HE unto the gate
which looketh toward the east,
and went up the stairs thereof,
and measured the threshold of the gate,
which was one reed broad;
and the other threshold of the gate,
which was one reed broad.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v7

And every little chamber
was one reed long, and one reed broad;
and between the little chambers were five cubits;
and the threshold of the gate
by the porch of the gate within
was one reed.

HE measured also the porch of the gate within,
one reed.

Then measured HE the porch of the gate,
eight cubits;
and the posts thereof, two cubits;
and the porch of the gate was inward.

And the little chambers of the gate eastward
were three on this side, and three on that side;
they three were of one measure;
and the posts had one measure
on this side and on that side.

And HE measured the breadth of the entry
of the gate, ten cubits;
and the length of the gate, thirteen cubits.

The space also before the little chambers
was one cubit on this side,
and the space was one cubit on that side;
and the little chambers were six cubits on this side,

HE measured, then, the gate
from the roof of one little chamber
to the roof of another;
the breadth was five and twenty cubits,
door against door.

unto the face of the porch of the inner gate
were fifty cubits.

And there were narrow windows
to the little chambers,
and to their posts within the gate round about,
and likewise to the arches;
and windows were round about inward;

And the pavement by the side of the gates
over against the length of the gates
was the lower pavement.

from the forefront of the lower gate
unto the forefront of the inner court without,
an hundred cubits eastward and northward.

And the gate of the outward court
that looked toward the north,

were three on this side and three on that side;
and the posts thereof and the arches thereof
were after the measure of the first gate;
the length thereof was fifty cubits,
and the breadth five and twenty cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v22

And their windows, and their arches,
and their palm trees
were after the measure of the gate
that looketh toward the east;
and they went up unto it by seven steps;
and the arches thereof were before them.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v23

And the gate of the inner court
was over against the gate toward the north,
and toward the east;
and HE measured from gate to gate
an hundred cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v24

After that HE brought me toward the south,
and, behold, a gate toward the south;
and HE measured the posts thereof
and the arches thereof
according to these measures.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v25

And there were windows in it
and in the arches thereof round about,
like those windows;
the length was fifty cubits,
and the breadth five and twenty cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v26

And there were seven steps to go up to it,
and the arches thereof were before them;
and it had palm trees,
one on this side, and another on that side,
upon the posts thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v27

And there was a gate in the inner court
toward the south;
and HE measured from gate to gate
toward the south an hundred cubits.

¶ Ezekiel 40 v28-37

{ heart }   [EK] 40v28

And HE brought me to the inner court
by the south gate;
and HE measured the south gate
according to these measures.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v29

And the little chambers thereof,
and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof,
according to these measures;
and there were windows in it
and in the arches thereof round about;
it was fifty cubits long,
and five and twenty cubits broad.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v30

And the arches round about
were five and twenty cubits long,
and five cubits broad.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v31

And the arches thereof were toward the utter court;
and palm trees were upon the posts thereof,
and the going up to it had eight steps.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v32

And HE brought me into the inner court
toward the east;
and HE measured the gate
according to these measures.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v33

And the little chambers thereof,
and the posts thereof, and the arches thereof,
were according to these measures;
and there were windows therein
and in the arches thereof round about;
it was fifty cubits long,
and five and twenty cubits broad.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v34

And the arches thereof
were toward the outward court;
and palm trees were upon the posts thereof,
on this side, and on that side;
and the going up to it had eight steps.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v35

And HE brought me to the north gate,
and measured it according to these measures.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v36

The little chambers thereof,
the posts thereof, and the arches thereof,
and the windows to it round about;
the length was fifty cubits,
and the breadth five and twenty cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v37

And the posts thereof were toward the utter court;
and palm trees were upon the posts thereof,
on this side, and on that side;
and the going up to it had eight steps.

¶ Ezekiel 40 v38-47

{ heart }   [EK] 40v38

And the chambers and the entries thereof
were by the posts of the gates,
where they washed the burnt offering.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v39

And in the porch of the gate
were two tables on this side,
and two tables on that side,
to slay thereon the burnt offering
and the sin offering and the trespass offering.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v40

And at the side without,
as one goeth up to the entry of the north gate,
were two tables;
and on the other side,
which was at the porch of the gate,
were two tables.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v41

Four tables were on this side,
and four tables on that side,
by the side of the gate;
eight tables, whereupon they slew their sacrifices.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v42

And the four tables were of hewn stone
for the burnt offering,
of a cubit and an half long,
and a cubit and an half broad,
and one cubit high;
whereupon also they laid the instruments
wherewith they slew the burnt offering
and the sacrifice.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v43

And within were hooks,
an hand broad, fastened round about;
and upon the tables was the flesh of the offering.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v44

And without the inner gate
were the chambers of the singers
in the inner court,
which was at the side of the north gate,
and their prospect was toward the south;
one at the side of the east gate
having the prospect toward the north.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v45

And HE said unto me,

This chamber,
whose prospect is toward the south,
is for the priests,
the keepers of the charge of the house’.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v46

And the chamber
whose prospect is toward the north
is for the priests,
the keepers of the charge of the altar;


These are the sons of Zadok among the sons of Levi,
which come near to the LORD
to minister unto HIM.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v47

So he measured the court, an hundred cubits long,
and an hundred cubits broad, foursquare;
and the altar that was before the house.

¶ Ezekiel 40 v48-49

{ heart }   [EK] 40v48

And HE brought me to the porch of the house,
and measured each post of the porch,
five cubits on this side, and five cubits on that side;
and the breadth of the gate
was three cubits on this side,
and three cubits on that side.

{ heart }   [EK] 40v49

The length of the porch was twenty cubits,
and the breadth eleven cubits;
and HE brought me by the steps
whereby they went up to it;
and there were pillars by the posts,
one on this side, and another on that side.

» Ezekiel 41

¶ Ezekiel 41 v1-2

{ heart }   [EK] 41v1

Afterward HE brought me to the temple,
and measured the posts,
six cubits broad on the one side,
and six cubits broad on the other side,
which was the breadth of the tabernacle.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v2

And the breadth of the door was ten cubits;
and the sides of the door
were five cubits on the one side,
and five cubits on the other side;
and HE measured the length thereof, forty cubits;
and the breadth, twenty cubits.

¶ Ezekiel 41 v3-4

{ heart }   [EK] 41v3

Then went HE inward,
and measured the post of the door, two cubits;
and the door, six cubits;
and the breadth of the door, seven cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v4

So HE measured the length thereof, twenty cubits;
and the breadth, twenty cubits, before the temple;
and HE said unto me,


This is the most holy place.

¶ Ezekiel 41 v5-11

{ heart }   [EK] 41v5

After HE measured the wall of the house,
six cubits;
and the breadth of every side chamber,
four cubits,
round about the house on every side.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v6

And the side chambers were three,
one over another, and thirty in order;
and they entered into the wall which was of the house
for the side chambers round about,
that they might have hold, but they had not hold
in the wall of the house.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v7

And there was an enlarging,
and a winding about still upward to the side chambers;
for the winding about of the house
went still upward, round about the house;
therefore the breadth of the house was still upward,
and so increased
from the lowest chamber to the highest
by the midst.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v8

I saw also the height of the house round about;
the foundations of the side chambers
were a full reed of six great cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v9

The thickness of the wall,
which was for the side chamber without,
was five cubits;
and that which was left
was the place of the side chambers
that were within.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v10

And between the chambers
was the wideness of twenty cubits
round about the house on every side.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v11

And the doors of the side chambers
were toward the place that was left,
one door toward the north,
and another door toward the south;
and the breadth of the place that was left
was five cubits round about.

¶ Ezekiel 41 v12

{ heart }   [EK] 41v12

Now the building that was before
the separate place at the end toward the west
was seventy cubits broad;
and the wall of the building was five cubits thick
round about,
and the length thereof ninety cubits.

¶ Ezekiel 41 v13-14

{ heart }   [EK] 41v13

So HE measured the house,
an hundred cubits long;
and the separate place,
and the building, with the walls thereof,
an hundred cubits long;

{ heart }   [EK] 41v14

Also the breadth of the face of the house,
and of the separate place toward the east,
an hundred cubits.

¶ Ezekiel 41 v15-26

{ heart }   [EK] 41v15

And HE measured the length of the building
over against the separate place which was behind it,
and the galleries thereof
on the one side and on the other side,
an hundred cubits,
with the inner temple, and the porches of the court;

{ heart }   [EK] 41v16

The door posts, and the narrow windows,
and the galleries round about on their three stories,
over against the door,
overlaid with wood round about,
and from the ground up to the windows,
and the windows were covered;

{ heart }   [EK] 41v17

To that above the door,
even unto the inner house, and without,
and by all the wall round about within and without,
by measure.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v18

And it was made with cherubim and palm trees,
so that a palm tree
was between a cherub and a cherub;
and every cherub had two faces,

{ heart }   [EK] 41v19

So that the face of a man
was toward the palm tree on the one side,
and the face of a young lion
toward the palm tree on the other side;
it was made through all the house round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v20

From the ground unto above the door
were cherubim and palm trees made,
and on the wall of the temple.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v21

The posts of the temple were squared,
and as for the face of the sanctuary;
the appearance of the one
as the appearance of the other.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v22

The altar of wood was three cubits high,
and the length thereof two cubits;
and the corners thereof,
and the length thereof,
and the walls thereof,
were of wood;
and HE said unto me,


This is the table that is before the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v23

And the temple and the sanctuary
had two doors.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v24

And the doors had two leaves apiece,
two turning leaves:
two leaves for the one door,
and two leaves for the other door.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v25

And there were made on them,
on the doors of the temple, cherubim and palm trees,
like as were made upon the walls;
and there were thick planks
upon the face of the porch without.

{ heart }   [EK] 41v26

And there were narrow windows
and palm trees
on the one side and on the other side,
on the sides of the porch,
and upon the side chambers of the house,
and thick planks.

» Ezekiel 42

¶ Ezekiel 42 v1-14

{ heart }   [EK] 42v1

Then HE brought me forth into the utter court,
the way toward the north;
and HE brought me into the chamber
that was over against the separate place,
and which was before the building toward the north.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v2

Before the length of an hundred cubits
was the north door,
and the breadth was fifty cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v3

Over against the twenty cubits
which were for the inner court,
and over against the pavement
which was for the utter court,
was gallery against gallery in three stories.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v4

And before the chambers
was a walk of ten cubits breadth inward,
a way of one cubit;
and their doors toward the north.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v5

Now the upper chambers were shorter;
for the galleries were higher than these,
than the lower, and than the middlemost
of the building.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v6

For they were in three stories,
but had not pillars as the pillars of the courts;
therefore, the building was straitened
more than the lowest and the middlemost
from the ground.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v7

And the wall that was without
over against the chambers, toward the utter court
on the forepart of the chambers,
the length thereof was fifty cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v8

For the length of the chambers
that were in the utter court was fifty cubits:
and, lo, before the temple were an hundred cubits.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v9

And from under these chambers
was the entry on the east side,
as one goeth into them from the utter court.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v10

The chambers were in the thickness of the wall
of the court toward the east,
over against the separate place,
and over against the building.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v11

And the way before them
was like the appearance of the chambers
which were toward the north,
as long as they, and as broad as they;
and all their goings out
were both according to their fashions,
and according to their doors.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v12

And according to the doors of the chambers
that were toward the south
was a door in the head of the way,
even the way directly before the wall
toward the east,
as one entereth into them.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v13

Then said HE unto me,

The north chambers and the south chambers,
which are before the separate place,
they are holy chambers,
where the priests that approach unto the LORD
shall eat the most holy things;
there shall they lay the most holy things,
and the meal offering,
and the sin offering,
and the trespass offering;
for the place is holy.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v14

When the priests enter therein,
then shall they not go out of the holy place
into the utter court,
but there they shall lay their garments
wherein they minister;
for they are holy;
and shall put on other garments,
and shall approach to those things
which are for the people.

¶ Ezekiel 42 v15-20

{ heart }   [EK] 42v15

Now when HE had made an end of measuring
the inner house,
HE brought me forth toward the gate
whose prospect is toward the east,
and measured it round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v16

HE measured the east side with the measuring reed,
five hundred reeds,
with the measuring reed round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v17

HE measured the north side,
five hundred reeds,
with the measuring reed round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v18

HE measured the south side,
five hundred reeds,
with the measuring reed.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v19

HE turned about to the west side,
and measured five hundred reeds
with the measuring reed.

{ heart }   [EK] 42v20

HE measured it by the four sides;
it had a wall round about,
five hundred reeds long, and five hundred broad,
to make a separation between the sanctuary
and the profane place.

» Ezekiel 43

¶ Ezekiel 43 v1-12

{ heart }   [EK] 43v1

Afterward, HE brought me to the gate,
even the gate that looketh toward the east,

{ heart }   [EK] 43v2

And, behold, the GLORY of the GOD of Israel
came from the way of the east;
and HIS voice was like a noise of many waters;
and the earth shined with HIS GLORY.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v3

And it was according to the appearance of the vision
which I saw,
even according to the vision that I saw

When I came to destroy the city;

And the visions
were like the vision that I saw by the river Chebar;
and I fell upon my face.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v4

And the GLORY of the LORD came into the house
by the way of the gate
whose prospect is toward the east.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v5

So the SPIRIT took me up,
and brought me into the inner court;
and, behold, the GLORY of the LORD
filled the house.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v6

And I heard HIM speaking unto me
out of the house;
and the MAN stood by me.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v7

And HE said unto me,

Son of man,
the place of MY throne,
and the place of the soles of MY feet,
where I will dwell
in the midst of the children of Israel
forever,
and MY holy NAME,
shall the house of Israel no more defile,
neither they, nor their kings,
by their whoredom,
nor by the carcasses of their kings
in their high places.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v8

In their setting of their threshold by MY thresholds,
and their post by MY posts,
and the wall between ME and them,
they have even defiled MY holy NAME
by their abominations that they have committed;
wherefore, I have consumed them in MINE anger.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v9

Now let them put away their whoredom,
and the carcasses of their kings,
far from ME,
and I will dwell in the midst of them forever.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v10

Thou son of man,
show the house to the house of Israel,
that they may be ashamed of their iniquities;
and let them measure the pattern.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v11

And if they be ashamed of all that they have done,
show them the form of the house,
and the fashion thereof,
and the goings out thereof,
and the comings in thereof,
and all the forms thereof,
and all the ordinances thereof,
and all the forms thereof,
and all its ordinances,
and all its forms,
and all the laws thereof;
and write it in their sight,
that they may keep the whole form thereof,
and all the ordinances thereof, and do them.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v12

This is the law of the house:

 ‘Upon the top of the mountain
the whole limit thereof round about
shall be most holy:’ 

Behold, this is the law of the house.

¶ Ezekiel 43 v13-27

{ heart }   [EK] 43v13

And these are the measures of the altar
after the cubits;
the cubit is a cubit and an handbreadth;
even the bottom shall be a cubit,
and the breadth a cubit,
and the border thereof
by the edge thereof round about shall be a span;
and this shall be the higher place of the altar.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v14

And from the bottom upon the ground
even to the lower settle
shall be two cubits, and the breadth one cubit;
and from the lesser settle even to the greater settle
shall be four cubits, and the breadth one cubit.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v15

So the altar shall be four cubits;
and from the altar and upward
shall be four horns.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v16

And the altar shall be twelve cubits long,
twelve broad, square
in the four squares thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v17

And the settle shall be fourteen cubits long
and fourteen broad n the four squares thereof;
and the border about it shall be half a cubit;
and the bottom thereof shall be a cubit about;
and his stairs shall look toward the east.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v18

And HE said unto me,

Son of man,

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

These are the ordinances of the altar
in the day when they shall make it,
to offer burnt offerings thereon,
and to sprinkle blood thereon.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v19

And thou shalt give to the priests,
the Levites, that be of the seed of Zadok,
which approach unto ME, to minister unto ME,


Saith the LORD GOD,

A young bullock for a sin offering.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v20

And thou shalt take of the blood thereof,
and put it on the four horns of it,
and on the four corners of the settle,
and upon the border round about;
thus shalt thou cleanse and purge it.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v21

Thou shalt take the bullock also of the sin offering,
and he shall burn it
in the appointed place of the house,
without the sanctuary.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v22

And on the second day
thou shalt offer a kid of the goats without blemish
for a sin offering;
and they shall cleanse the altar,
as they did cleanse it with the bullock.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v23

When thou hast made an end of cleansing it,
thou shalt offer a young bullock without blemish,
and a ram out of the flock without blemish.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v24

And thou shalt offer them before the LORD,
and the priests shall cast salt upon them,
and they shall offer them up for a burnt offering
unto the LORD.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v25

Seven days shalt thou prepare every day
a goat for a sin offering;
they shall also prepare a young bullock,
and a ram out of the flock, without blemish.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v26

Seven days shall they purge the altar
and purify it;
and they shall consecrate themselves.

{ heart }   [EK] 43v27

And when these days are expired,
it shall be that, upon the eighth day,
and so forward,
the priests shall make your burnt offerings
upon the altar,
and your peace offerings;
and I will accept you,


Saith the LORD GOD.

» Ezekiel 44

¶ Ezekiel 44 v1-3

{ heart }   [EK] 44v1

Then HE brought me back the way of the gate
of the outward sanctuary
which looketh toward the east;
and it was shut.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v2

Then said the LORD unto me,

This gate shall be shut;
it shall not be opened,
and no man shall enter in by it;
because the LORD, the GOD of Israel,
hath entered in by it,
therefore, it shall be shut.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v3

It is for the prince;
the prince, he shall sit in it
to eat bread before the LORD;
he shall enter by the way of the porch
of that gate,
and shall go out by the way of the same.

¶ Ezekiel 44 v4-9

{ heart }   [EK] 44v4

Then brought HE me
the way of the north gate before the house,
and I looked,
and, behold, the GLORY of the LORD
filled the house of the LORD;
and I fell upon my face.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v5

And the LORD said unto me,

Son of man,
Mark well, and behold with thine eyes,
and hear with thine ears all that I say unto thee
concerning all the ordinances
of the house of the LORD,
and all the laws thereof;
and mark well the entering in of the house,
with every going forth of the sanctuary.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v6

And thou shalt say to the rebellious,
even to the house of Israel,

 ‘Thus saith the LORD GOD:
O ye house of Israel,
let it suffice you of all your abominations’,

{ heart }   [EK] 44v7

In that ye have brought into MY sanctuary
foreigners, uncircumcised in heart,
and uncircumcised in flesh,
to be in MY sanctuary,
to pollute it, even MY house,
when ye offer MY bread, the fat and the blood,
and they have broken MY covenant
because of all your abominations.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v8

And ye have not kept the charge
of MINE holy things,
but ye have set keepers of MY charge
in MY sanctuary for yourselves.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v9

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

No foreigner, uncircumcised in heart,
nor uncircumcised in flesh,
shall enter into MY sanctuary,
of any foreigner that is among the children of Israel.

¶ Ezekiel 44 v10-14

{ heart }   [EK] 44v10

And the Levites that are gone away
far from ME,
when Israel went astray,
which went astray away from ME
after their idols;
they shall even bear their iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v11

Yet they shall be ministers in MY sanctuary,
having charge at the gates of the house,
and ministering to the house;
they shall slay the burnt offering
and the sacrifice for the people,
and they shall stand before them
to minister unto them.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v12

Because they ministered unto them
before their idols,
and caused the house of Israel
to fall into iniquity,
therefore have I lifted up MINE hand against them,


Saith the LORD GOD,

And they shall bear their iniquity.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v13

And they shall not come near unto ME,
to do the office of a priest unto ME,
nor to come near to any of MY holy things,
in the most holy place;
but they shall bear their shame,
and their abominations which they have committed.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v14

But I will make them keepers of the charge
of the house,
for all the service thereof,
and for all that shall be done therein.

¶ Ezekiel 44 v15-27

{ heart }   [EK] 44v15

But the priests the Levites, the sons of Zadok,
that kept the charge of MY sanctuary
when the children of Israel went astray from ME,
they shall come near to ME to minister unto ME,
and they shall stand before ME to offer unto ME
the fat and the blood,


Saith the LORD GOD.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v16

They shall enter into MY sanctuary,
and they shall come near to MY table,
to minister unto ME,
and they shall keep MY charge.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v17

And it shall come to pass,
that when they enter in at the gates
of the inner court,
they shall be clothed with linen garments;
and no wool shall come upon them,
whiles they minister in the gates
of the inner court, and within.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v18

They shall have linen bonnets upon their heads,
and shall have linen breeches upon their loins;
they shall not gird themselves
with anything that causeth sweat.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v19

And when they go forth into the utter court,
even into the utter court to the people,
they shall put off their garments
wherein they ministered,
and lay them in the holy chambers,
and they shall put on other garments;
and they shall not sanctify the people
with their garments.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v20

Neither shall they shave their heads,
nor suffer their locks to grow long;
they shall only poll their heads.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v21

Neither shall any priest drink wine,
when they enter into the inner court.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v22

Neither shall they take for their wives
a widow, nor her that is put away;
but they shall take maidens
of the seed of the house of Israel,
or a widow that had a priest before.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v23

And they shall teach MY people

 ‘The difference between the holy and profane,’ 

And cause them to discern between

 ‘The unclean and the clean’.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v24

And in controversy they shall stand in judgment;
and they shall judge it according to MY judgments;
and they shall keep MY laws and MY statutes
in all MINE assemblies;
and they shall hallow MY sabbaths.

{ heart }   [EK] 44v25

And they shall come at no dead person
to defile themselves;
but for father, or for mother,
or for son, or for daughter,
for brother, or for sister

the length shall be the length
of five and twenty thousand reeds,
and the breadth shall be ten thousand:
this shall be holy in all the borders thereof
round about.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v1

Thus saith the LORD GOD:

The gate of the inner court
that looketh toward the east
shall be shut the six working days,
but on the sabbath it shall be opened,
and in the day of the new moon it shall be opened.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v2

And the prince shall enter
by the way of the porch
of that gate from without,
and shall stand by the post of the gate,

his burnt offering and his peace offerings,
and he shall worship at the threshold of the gate;
then he shall go forth;
but the gate shall not be shut until the evening.

Likewise, the people of the land shall worship
at the door of this gate
before the LORD
in the sabbaths and in the new moons.

that the prince shall offer unto the LORD
in the sabbath day
shall be six lambs without blemish,
and a ram without blemish.

And the meal offering shall be an ephah for a ram,
and the meal offering for the lambs
as he shall be able to give,
and an hin of oil to an ephah.

And in the day of the new moon
it shall be a young bullock without blemish,

according as his hand shall attain unto,

And when the prince shall enter,
he shall go in by the way of the porch
of that gate,
and he shall go forth by the same way thereof.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v9

But when the people of the land
shall come before the LORD
in the solemn feasts,
he that entereth in by the way of the north gate
to worship
shall go out by the way of the south gate;
and he that entereth by the way of the south gate
shall go forth by the way of the north gate;
he shall not return by the way of the gate
whereby he came in,
but shall go forth over against it.

And the prince in the midst of them,
when they go in, shall go in;
and when they go forth, shall go forth.

and his peace offerings,
as he did on the sabbath day,

every morning,

But if he give a gift of his inheritance
to one of his servants,
then it shall be his to the year of liberty;
after it shall return to the prince,
but his inheritance shall be his sons' for them.

by oppression,
to thrust them out of their possession;
but he shall give his sons inheritance
out of his own possession,
that MY people be not scattered
every man from his possession.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v19

Afterward HE brought me through the entry,
which was at the side of the gate,
into the holy chambers of the priests,
which looked toward the north,
and, behold,
there was a place on the two sides westward.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v20

Then said HE unto me,

This is the place where the priests shall boil
the trespass offering and the sin offering,
where they shall bake the meal offering;
that they bear them not out into the utter court,
to sanctify the people.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v21

Then HE brought me forth into the utter court,
and caused me to pass by
the four corners of the court;
and, behold,
in every corner of the court there was a court.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v22

In the four corners of the court
there were courts joined
of forty cubits long broad;
these four corners were of one measure.

{ heart }   [EK] 46v23

And there was a row of building round about in them,
round about them four,
and it was made with boiling places
under the rows round about.

Then said HE unto me,

These are the places of them that boil,
where the ministers of the house
shall boil the sacrifice of the people.

unto the door of the house,
and, behold, waters issued out
from under the threshold of the house
eastward;
for the forefront of the house stood
toward the east,
and the waters came down from under
from the right side of the house,
at the south side of the altar.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v2

Then brought HE me out of the way of the gate
northward,
and led me about the way without
unto the utter gate
by the way that looketh eastward;
and, behold, there ran out waters
on the right side.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v3

And when the MAN
that had the line in HIS hand
went forth eastward,
HE measured a thousand cubits,
and HE brought me through the waters;
the waters were to the ankles.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v4

Again HE measured a thousand,
and brought me through the waters;
the waters were to the knees.
again HE measured a thousand,
and brought me through;
the waters were to the loins.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v5

Afterward HE measured a thousand;
and it was a river that I could not pass over;
for the waters were risen, waters to swim in,
a river that could not be passed over.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v6

And HE said unto me,

Son of man, hast thou seen this?

Then HE brought me,
and caused me to return to the brink of the river.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v7

Now when I had returned,
behold, at the bank of the river were very many trees
on the one side and on the other.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v8

Then said HE unto me,

These waters issue out toward the east country,
and go down into the desert, and go into the sea;
which being brought forth into the sea,
the waters shall be healed.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v9

And it shall come to pass,
that every thing that liveth, which moveth,
whithersoever the rivers shall come, shall live;
and there shall be a very great multitude of fish,
because these waters shall come thither;
for they shall be healed;
and every thing shall live whither the river cometh.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v10

And it shall come to pass
that the fishers shall stand upon it;
from En-gedi even unto En-eglaim
they shall be a place to spread forth nets;
their fish shall be according to their kinds,
as the fish of the great sea, exceedingly many.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v11

But the miry places thereof
and the marshes thereof
shall not be healed, they shall be given to salt.

{ heart }   [EK] 47v12

And by the river upon the bank thereof,
on this side and on that side,
shall grow all trees for meat,
whose leaf shall not fade,
neither shall the fruit thereof be consumed;
it shall bring forth new fruit
according to his months,
because their waters they issued out
of the sanctuary;
and the fruit thereof shall be for meat,
and the leaf thereof for medicine.
