God's Dealings with Israel Rehearsed

1 Now in the seventh year, in the fifth month, on the tenth of the month, certain F236 of the elders R583 of Israel came to inquire of the LORD, and sat before me. 2 And the word of the LORD came to me saying, 3 "Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel and say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD F237 , "Do you come to inquire of Me? As I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I R584 will not be inquired of by you."' 4 "Will you judge them, will you judge them, son of man? Make R585 them know the abominations of their fathers; 5 and say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "On the day when I chose R586 Israel and swore F238 to the descendants F239 of the house of Jacob and made Myself known to them in the land of Egypt, when I swore F238 to them, saying, I R587 am the LORD your God, 6 on that day I swore to them, to R588 bring them out from the land of Egypt into a land that I had selected F240 for them, flowing R589 with milk and honey, which is the R590 glory of all lands. 7 "I said to them, `Cast R591 away, each of you, the detestable things of his eyes, and do R592 not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I R593 am the LORD your God.' 8 "But they rebelled R594 against Me and were not willing to listen to Me; they F241 did not cast away the detestable things of their eyes, nor did they forsake the idols R595 of Egypt.

Then I resolved F242 to pour R596 out My wrath on them, to accomplish My anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt. 9 "But I acted for R597 the sake of My name, that it should not R598 be profaned in the sight of the nations among whom they lived, in whose sight I made Myself known to them by bringing them out of the land of Egypt. 10 "So I took them out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness. R599 11 "I gave them My statutes R600 and informed them of My ordinances, by which, R601 if a man observes F243 them, he will live. 12 "Also I gave them My sabbaths to be a sign R602 between Me and them, that they might know that I am the LORD who sanctifies them. 13 "But the house of Israel rebelled R603 against Me in the wilderness. They did not walk in My statutes and they rejected My ordinances, by R604 which, if a man observes F244 them, he will live; and My sabbaths R605 they greatly profaned. Then I resolved F245 to pour R606 out My wrath on them in the wilderness, to annihilate them. 14 "But I acted for the sake of My name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations, before whose sight I had brought them out. 15 "Also I R607 swore to them in the wilderness that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, flowing with milk and honey, which is the glory of all lands, 16 because they rejected My ordinances, and as for My statutes, they did not walk in them; they even profaned My sabbaths, for their heart R608 continually went after their idols. 17 "Yet My eye spared them rather than destroying them, and I did not cause their annihilation R609 in the wilderness.

18 "I said to their children R610 F246 in the wilderness, `Do R611 not walk in the statutes of your fathers or keep their ordinances or defile yourselves with their idols. 19 `I R612 am the LORD your God; walk R613 in My statutes and keep My ordinances and observe F247 them. 20 `Sanctify R614 My sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that you may know that I am the LORD your God.' 21 "But the children R615 rebelled against Me; they did not walk in My statutes, nor were they careful to observe My ordinances, by which, if a man observes them, he will live; they profaned My sabbaths. So I resolved F248 to pour out My wrath on them, to accomplish My anger against them in the wilderness. 22 "But I withdrew R616 My hand and acted for R617 the sake of My name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations in whose sight I had brought them out. 23 "Also I swore to them in the wilderness that I would scatter R618 them among the nations and disperse them among the lands, 24 because they had not observed My ordinances, but had rejected My statutes and had profaned My sabbaths, and their R619 eyes were on F249 the idols of their fathers. 25 "I also gave them statutes that were not R620 good and ordinances by which they could not live; 26 and I pronounced them unclean R621 because of their gifts, in that they caused R622 all their F250 firstborn to pass through the fire so that I might make them desolate, in order that they might know R623 that I am the LORD."'

27 "Therefore, son of man, speak R624 to the house of Israel and say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Yet in this your fathers have blasphemed R625 Me by acting R626 treacherously against Me. 28 "When I had brought R627 them into the land which I swore to give to them, then they saw every high R628 hill and every leafy tree, and they offered there their sacrifices and there they presented the provocation of their offering. There also they made their soothing aroma and there they poured out their drink offerings. 29 "Then I said to them, `What is the high place to which you go?' So its name is called Bamah F251 to this day."' 30 "Therefore, say to the house of Israel, `Thus says the Lord GOD, "Will you defile yourselves after F252 the manner of your fathers R629 and play the harlot after their detestable things? 31 "When F253 you offer your gifts, when you cause R630 your sons to pass through the fire, you are defiling yourselves with all your idols to this day. And shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live," declares the Lord GOD, "I will not be inquired of by you. 32 "What comes R631 into F254 your mind will not come about, when you say: `We will be like the nations, like the tribes of the lands, serving R632 wood and stone.'

God Will Restore Israel to Her Land

33 "As I live," declares the Lord GOD, "surely with a mighty hand and with an outstretched R633 arm and with wrath poured out, I shall be king R634 over you. 34 "I will bring R635 you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered, with a mighty hand and with an outstretched arm and with wrath R636 poured out; 35 and I will bring you into the wilderness R637 of the peoples, and there I will enter into judgment with you face to face. 36 "As I entered R638 into judgment with your fathers in the wilderness R639 of the land of Egypt, so I will enter into judgment with you," declares the Lord GOD. 37 "I will make you pass R640 under the rod, and I will bring you into the bond of the covenant; 38 and I will purge R641 from you the rebels and those who transgress against Me; I will bring them out of the land where they sojourn, but they will not R642 enter the land F255 of Israel. Thus you will know that I am the LORD.

39 "As for you, O house of Israel," thus says the Lord GOD, "Go, R643 serve everyone his idols; but F256 later you will surely listen to Me, and My holy name you will profane R644 no longer with your gifts and with your idols. 40 "For on My holy mountain, on the high mountain of Israel," declares the Lord GOD, "there the whole house of Israel, all R645 of them, will serve Me in the land; there I will accept R646 them and there I will seek F257 your contributions and the choicest of your gifts, with all your holy things. 41 "As F258 a soothing aroma I will accept you when I bring R647 you out from the peoples and gather you from the lands where you are scattered; and I will prove Myself holy R648 among you in the sight of the nations. 42 "And you R649 will know that I am the LORD, when R650 I bring you into the land of Israel, into the land R651 which I swore to give to your forefathers. 43 "There you will remember R652 your ways and all your deeds with which you have defiled yourselves; and you will loathe R653 yourselves in your own sight F259 for all the evil things that you have done. 44 "Then you R654 will know that I am the LORD when I have dealt with you for R655 My name's sake, not according to your evil ways or according to your corrupt deeds, O house of Israel," declares the Lord GOD.' "

45 Now F260 the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 46 "Son of man, set your face toward Teman, F261 and speak out against the south R656 and prophesy R657 against the forest R658 land F262 of the Negev, 47 and say to the forest of the Negev, `Hear the word of the LORD: thus says the Lord GOD, "Behold, I am about to kindle R659 a fire in you, and it will consume every green F263 tree in you, as well as every dry tree; the blazing flame will not be quenched and the R660 F264 whole surface from south to north will be burned by it. 48 "All flesh will see that I, the LORD, have kindled it; it shall not R661 be quenched.""' 49 Then I said, "Ah Lord GOD! They are saying of me, `Is he not just speaking parables?' R662 "
