Ezekiel, Chapter 5

And you, son of man, take a sharp sword to yourself, take a barber's razor also, and cause [it] to pass on your head and on your beard. Then take scales to weigh, and divide the [hair].

You shall burn a third part with fire in the middle of the city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled; and you shall take a third part [and] beat around it with a sword; and you shall scatter a third part in the wind, and I will draw out a sword after them.

Also you shall take a few of them in number, and tie them up in your skirts.

Then take of them again, and throw them into the middle of the fire, and burn them in the fire; for a fire shall come forth from them into all the house of Israel.

So says the Lord God: This [is] Jerusalem. I have set it in the middle of the nations, and all around her [are] the lands.

And she has changed My judgments into wickedness more than the nations, and [defiled] My laws more than the countries that [are] all around her; for they have rejected My judgments and My laws; they have not walked in them.

Therefore so says the Lord God: Because you multiplied more than the nations that [are] all around you, [and] have not walked in My laws, neither have kept My judgments, nor have done according to the judgments of the nations all around you;

therefore so says the Lord God; Behold, I, even I, [am] against you, and will carry out judgments in your midst before the nations.

And I will do in you that which I have not done, and the like of which I will never do again, because of all your abominations.

So the fathers shall eat the sons in your midst, and the sons shall eat their fathers. And I will execute judgments in you, and I will scatter the whole remnant of you into all the winds.

Therefore, [as] I live, says the Lord Jehovah, surely, because you have defiled My sanctuary with all your detestable things, and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw; nor shall My eye spare you, nor will I have any pity.

A third part of you shall die with the plague, and shall be consumed with the famine in your midst. And a third part shall fall by the sword all around you; and I will scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a sword after them.

So My anger shall be fulfilled, and I will cause My fury to rest on them, and I will be comforted. And they shall know that I the LORD have spoken [it] in My zeal, when I have fulfilled My fury in them.

And I will make you a waste and a curse among the nations that [are] all around you, in the sight of all who pass by.

So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an example and a wonder to the nations which [are] all around you, when I shall execute judgments against you in anger and in fury and in rebukes [among them]. I the LORD have spoken it.

When I shall send on them the evil arrows of famine, which shall be for [their] ruin, which I will send to destroy you; even I will increase the famine on you, and break your staff of bread;

yea, I will send on you famine and evil beasts, and you will be bereaved. And pestilence and blood shall pass among you; and I shall bring a sword on you. I the LORD have spoken.
