The final desolation of Israel.
Ezekiel 7:1 And the word of Yahweh came unto me, saying: Ezekiel 7:2 Thou, therefore, O son of man, Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh, To the so of Israel, there is an end,The end, hath come, upon the four skirts of the land. Ezekiel 7:3 Now, is the end upon thee, Therefore will I send mine anger against thee, And judge thee according to thy ways,And lay upon thee all thine abominations; Ezekiel 7:4 And mine eye, shall not shield thee, Neither will I pity,For, thy waysupon thee, will I lay, And, thine abominations, in thy midst, shall be found, So shall ye know, that, I, am Yahweh. Ezekiel 7:5 Thus, saith My Lord, Yahweh: A calamity, a sole calamity, lo! it hath come. Ezekiel 7:6 An end, hath come, Come, hath the end, It hath roused itself up against thee,Lo! it hath come. Ezekiel 7:7 The circle, hath come round, unto thee, O inhabitant of the land,The time, hath come, The day of consternation, hath drawn near, And not the joyful shout of the mountains. Ezekiel 7:8 Now shortly, will I pour out mine indignation upon thee, And will bring to an end mine anger against thee, And will judge thee according to thy ways,And will lay upon thee all thine abominations. Ezekiel 7:9 And mine eye shall not shield thee, Neither will I have pity,According to thy ways, unto thee, will I render, And, thine abominations, in thy midst, shall be found, So shall ye know, that, I, Yahweh, am smiting. Ezekiel 7:10 Lo! the day, Lo! it hath come,The circle, hath gone forth, The sceptre, hath blossomed, Insolence, hath sprouted: Ezekiel 7:11 Violence, hath risen up as a sceptre of lawlessness,There are none of them, And none of their multitude, And none of their throngs, And no lamentation over them. Ezekiel 7:12 The time, hath come, The day, hath arrived, The buyer, let him not rejoice, and, The seller, let him not mourn,For, indignation, is against all her multitude. Ezekiel 7:13 For, the seller, unto that which is to be sold, shall not return, though, yet, among the living, were their life,for, the vision, is against all her multitude. He shall not return, And, no man, by his punishment, shall strengthen, his life. Ezekiel 7:14 They have blown the trumpet, even to make, All ready, Yet is there none going to the battle; For, mine indignation, is against all her multitude. Ezekiel 7:15 The sword, without, and, Pestilence and famine, within,He that is in the field, by the sword, shall die, and, He that is in the city, famine or pestilence, shall devour him;
The mournful repentance of them that escape.
Ezekiel 7:16 While they who escape of them, shall escape, and become, on the mountains, as the doves of the valleys, all of them cooing,each one in his punishment. Ezekiel 7:17 All hands, shall be unnerved; and, All knees, shall be weak as water. Ezekiel 7:18 Therefore shall they gird themselves with sackcloth, And shuddering shall cover them,And, in all faces, shall be paleness, And, in all their heads, baldness. Ezekiel 7:19 Their silver, into the streets, shall they cast, and, Their gold, for throwing away, shall serve, Their silver and their gold, shall not be able to deliver them, in the day of the wrath of Yahweh, Their craving, shall they not satisfy, and, Their belly, shall they not fill,For, a stumbling-block, hath their iniquity become.
The enemies defile the sanctuary because of the Israelites' abominations.
Ezekiel 7:20 When, the beauty of his own ornament, he had, in majesty, placed, Then, the images, of their abominations, Their detestable things, Made they therein,For this cause, have I delivered it up to them for removal; Ezekiel 7:21 Yea I will deliver it, Into the hand of foreigners, for a prey, And to the lawless ones of the earth, for a spoil, And they will profane it; Ezekiel 7:22 And I will turn away my face from them, And they will profane my cherished place,Yea there will enter it violent men, Who will profane it.
Under the type of a chain is shewed their miserable captivity.
Ezekiel 7:23 Prepare thou a chain, For, the land, is full of the crime of bloodshed, And, the city, is full of violence. Ezekiel 7:24 So then I will bring in the wicked ones of the nations, And they shall take possession of their houses,And I will cause to cease the pomp of the strong ones, And their holy places, shall be profaned. Ezekiel 7:25 Destruction, hath entered,And they shall seek welfare, and there be, none. Ezekiel 7:26 Disaster upon disaster, shall come, And, report after report, shall arise,Therefore shall they seek a vision from prophet, And, law, shall perish from priest, And counsel, from elders. Ezekiel 7:27 The king, shall mourn, and, The chief, shall clothe himself with astonishment, and, The hands of the people of the land, shall be wrung in anguish,After their own way, will I deal with them, and, With their own sentences, will I sentence them, And they shall know, that, I, am Yahweh.
