Ezk 5:1And you, son of man, take a sharp sword; take it as a barber’s razor and pass it over your head and over your beard; then take scales to weigh with, and divide the hair.

Ezk 5:2One-third you shall burn with fire in the middle of the city when the days of the siege are fulfilled; and you shall take a third and strike it with the sword all around the city; and one-third you shall scatter to the wind, and I will draw a sword after them.

Ezk 5:3And you shall take from there a few in number and bind them in the edges of your garment.

Ezk 5:4And you shall take again from them and cast them into the midst of the fire; and you shall burn them in the fire; from them fire will go forth against all the house of Israel.

Ezk 5:5Thus says the Lord Jehovah, This is Jerusalem; I have set her in the midst of the nations, and around her are countries.

Ezk 5:6But she has rebelled against My ordinances in wickedness more than the nations and against My statutes more than the countries that surround her, for they have rejected My ordinances and have not walked in My statutes.

Ezk 5:7Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, Because you have been more turbulent than the nations that surround you and have not walked in My statutes and have not kept My ordinances and have not even kept the ordinances of the nations that surround you;

Ezk 5:8Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, Indeed I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments in your midst in the sight of the nations.

Ezk 5:9And I will do among you that which I have not done and the like of which I will never do again, because of all your abominations.

Ezk 5:10Therefore fathers will eat the sons in your midst, and sons will eat their fathers; and I will execute judgments upon you, and I will scatter all your remnant toward all the winds.

Ezk 5:11Therefore as I live, declares the Lord Jehovah, surely because you have defiled My sanctuary with all your detestable things and all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw My eye that it not pity you, nor will I spare.

Ezk 5:12One-third of you will die by pestilence, and they will be consumed by famine in the midst of you; and one-third will fall by the sword surrounding you; and one-third I will scatter toward all the winds, and I will draw a sword after them.

Ezk 5:13Thus My anger will be spent, and I will cause My wrath to rest upon them, and I will be comforted; and they will know that I, Jehovah, have spoken in My zeal when I spend My wrath upon them.

Ezk 5:14Moreover I will make you a desolation and a reproach among the nations that surround you, in the sight of all who pass by.

Ezk 5:15Thus you will be a reproach and a taunt, a warning and a horror, to the nations that surround you, when I execute judgments upon you in anger and wrath and furious rebukes. I, Jehovah, have spoken.

Ezk 5:16When I send against them the evil arrows of famine, which are for destruction and which I will send to destroy you, I will increase the famine upon you and will break your staff of bread.

Ezk 5:17Thus I will send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they will make you childless; and pestilence and blood will pass through you, and I will bring a sword upon you. I, Jehovah, have spoken.
