Jerusalem's Desolation Foretold

1 "As for you, son of man, take a sharp R117 sword; take and use F47 it as a barber's razor on your head and beard. Then take scales R118 for weighing and divide the F48 hair. 2 "One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the days R119 of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around the F49 city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will unsheathe R120 a sword behind them. 3 "Take also a few in number from them F50 and bind them in the edges of your robes. 4 "Take again some of them and throw them into the fire and burn them in the fire; from it a fire will spread F51 to all the house of Israel.

5 "Thus says the Lord GOD F52 , `This is Jerusalem; R121 I have set her at the center R122 of the nations, with lands around her. 6 `But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes more R123 than the lands which surround her; for they have rejected R124 My ordinances and have not walked in F53 My statutes.' 7 "Therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, `Because you have more R125 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,' 8 therefore, thus says the Lord GOD, `Behold, I, even I, am against R126 you, and I will execute R127 judgments among you in the sight of the nations. 9 `And because of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have not R128 done, and the like of which I will never do again. 10 `Therefore, fathers R129 will eat their sons among you, and sons will eat their fathers; for I will execute judgments on you and scatter R130 all your remnant to every wind. 11 `So as I live,' declares the Lord GOD, `surely, because you have defiled R131 My sanctuary with all your detestable R132 idols and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw, and My eye will have no pity and I will not spare. 12 `One third of you will die by plague R133 or be consumed by famine among you, one third will fall by the sword around you, and one third I will scatter R134 to every wind, and I will unsheathe R135 a sword behind them.

13 `Thus My anger will be spent and I will satisfy F54 My wrath on them, and I will be appeased; R136 F55 then they will know that I, the LORD, have spoken R137 in My zeal when I have spent My wrath upon them. 14 `Moreover, I will make you a desolation and a reproach R138 among the nations which surround you, in the sight of all who pass by. 15 `So it F56 will be a reproach, a reviling, a warning R139 and an object of horror to the nations who surround you when I execute R140 judgments against you in anger, wrath and raging rebukes. I, the LORD, have spoken. 16 `When I send against them the deadly F57 arrows of famine which were F58 for the destruction of those whom I will send to destroy you, then I will also intensify the famine upon you and break the staff of bread. 17 `Moreover, I R141 will send on you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you of children; plague R142 and bloodshed also will pass through you, and I will bring the sword on you. I, the LORD, have spoken.' "
