As for the thirde parte that remayneth, cast it in the wynde, & then shewe the bare knyfe. Ezekiel 5:3 Yet afterwarde take a lytle of the same, and bynde it in thy cote lappe. Ezekiel 5:4 Then take a curtesy of it, and cast it in the myddest of the fyre: & burne it in the fyre. Out of the same fyre shall there goo a flame, vpon the whole house of Israell.

Ezekiel 5:5 Morouer, thus sayde the Lorde God: This same is Ierusalem. I sett her in the myddest of the Heathen & nacions: that are rounde aboute her, Ezekiel 5:6 but she hath despysed my iudgmentes more then the Gentiles them selues, and broken my commaundementes more then the nacyons, that lye round aboute her: For they haue cast out myne ordinaunces, & not walcked in my lawes. Ezekiel 5:7 Therfore, thus sayeth the Lord God: For so moch as ye with youre wickednesse farre exceade the Heathen, that dwell rounde aboute you: (For ye haue not walcked in my lawes, nether haue ye kepte myne ordinaunces) Ezekiel 5:8 Therfore thus sayeth the Lorde God. I wyll also come vpon the, for in the myddest of the wyll I syt in iudgment, in the syght of the Heathen, Ezekiel 5:9 and wyll handle the of soch a fashion, as I neuer dyd before, and as I neuer will do from that tyme forth, and that because of all thyne abhominacyons. Ezekiel 5:10 For in the fathers shall be fayne to eate their owne sonnes, and the sonnes their owne fathers. Soch a courte will I kepe in the, & the whole remnaunt will I scatre in to all the wyndes. Ezekiel 5:11 Wherfore as trulye as I lyue (sayeth the Lord God) seyng thou hast defiled my Sanctuary, with all maner of abhominacyons and with al thy shameful offences: For this cause will I also destroye the. Myne eye shall not ouer se the, nether will I spare the.

Ezekiel 5:13 Thus I wyll perfourme my indignacion & set my wrath agaynst them, and ease my selfe. So that when I haue fulfylled myne anger agaynst them, they shall knowe that I am the Lorde, whiche with a feruent glousye haue spoken it. Ezekiel 5:14 Moreouer I wyll make the waste and abhorred, befor all the Heathen that dwell aboute the, & in the syght of all them, that go by the: Ezekiel 5:15 so that when I punishe the in my wrath, in myne anger, & with the plage of my whote displeasure: thou shalt be a very abhominacion, shame, a gasynge & wondrynge stocke, amonge the Heathen that lye aboute the. Euen I the Lorde haue spoken it, and it shall come to passe, Ezekiel 5:16 when I shute amonge them the perlous dartes of honger, which shalbe but death: Yee therfore shall I shute them, because I wyll destroye you I will encrease hunger, & mynishe all the prouisyon of bred amonge you. Ezekiel 5:17 Plages and mysery wyll I sende you, yee and wylde beastes also to destroye you Pestilence & bloudshedynge shall come vpon you, and the swearde will I bringe ouer you. Euen I the Lorde, haue sayde it.
