"Thus says the Lord GOD, `This is Jerusalem; I have set her at the center of the nations, with lands around her. (Ezekiel 5:5)

`But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes more than the lands which surround her; for they have rejected My ordinances and have not walked in My statutes.' (Ezekiel 5:6)

"Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, `Because you have more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,' (Ezekiel 5:7)

therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, `Behold, I, even I, am against you, and I will execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations. (Ezekiel 5:8)
