Under the type of hair,
Ezekiel 5:1 And thou sonne of man, take thee a sharpe knife, take thee a barbours rasor, and cause [it] to passe vpon thine head and vpon thy beard: then take the ballances to weigh, and diuide the [haire]. Ezekiel 5:2 Thou shalt burne with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the dayes of the siege are fulfilled, and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife, and a third part thou shalt scatter in the winde, and I will draw out a sword after them. Ezekiel 5:3 Thou shalt also take thereof a few in number, and bind them in thy skirts. Ezekiel 5:4 Then take of them againe, and cast them into the midst of the fire, and burne them in the fire: [for] thereof shall a fire come foorth into all the house of Israel.
is shewed the judgment of Jerusalem for their rebellion,
Ezekiel 5:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This [is] Ierusalem: I haue set it in the midst of the nations and countreys [that are] round about her. Ezekiel 5:6 And she hath changed my iudgements into wickednesse more then the nations, and my statutes more then the countreyes that [are] round about her: for they haue refused my iudgements and my statutes, they haue not walked in them. Ezekiel 5:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Because yee multiplied more then the nations that [are] round about you, [and] haue not walked in my Statutes, neither haue kept my iudgments, neither haue done according to the iudgements of the nations that [are] round about you: Ezekiel 5:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD, Behold, I, euen I [am] against thee, and will execute iudgements in the midst of thee in the sight of the nations. Ezekiel 5:9 And I will doe in thee that which I haue not done, and whereunto I will not doe any more the like, because of all thine abominations. Ezekiel 5:10 Therefore the fathers shall eate the sonnes in the midst of thee, and the sonnes shall eate their fathers, and I will execute iudgements in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter into all the windes. Ezekiel 5:11 Wherefore, as I liue, 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 haue any pitie.
by famine, sword, and dispersion.
Ezekiel 5:12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and with famine shall they be consumed in the middest of thee: and a third part shall fall by the sword round about thee: and I will scatter a third part into all the windes, and I wil draw out a sword after them. Ezekiel 5:13 Thus shall mine anger be accomplished, and I will cause my fury to rest vpon them, and I will be comforted: and they shal know that I the LORD haue spoken [it] in my zeale, when I haue accomplished my fury in them. Ezekiel 5:14 Moreouer I will make thee waste, and a reproch among the nations that [are] round about thee, in the sight of all that passe by. Ezekiel 5:15 So it shall bee a reproch and a taunt, an instruction and an astonishment vnto the nations that [are] round about thee, when I shall execute iudgments in thee in anger and in furie, and in furious rebukes: I the LORD haue spoken [it]. Ezekiel 5:16 When I shall send vpon them the euill arrowes of famine, which shall be for [their] destruction, [and] which I will send to destroy you: and I wil increase the famine vpon you, and will breake your staffe of bread. Ezekiel 5:17 So will I send vpon you famine, and euill beasts, and they shall bereaue thee, and pestilence and blood shal passe through thee, and I will bring the sword vpon thee: I the LORD haue spoken [it].
