katapi HOME Ezekiel 7:1-14 - Israel's end is near.  Eze.7.1-14

7 1 The word of the LORD came to me: 7 2 Man; the Lord GOD says this to the land of Israel: An end is coming, the end is coming upon the four corners of the land Or earth. 7 3 The end is now upon you; I will unleash my anger against you; I will call you to account for your doings and bring your abominations upon your own heads. 7 4 I will neither pity nor spare you: I will make you suffer for your doings and the abominations that continue in your midst. So you shall know that I am the LORD.

7 5 These are the words of the Lord GOD: Behold, it comes, disasters one upon another; 7 6 the end, the end, it comes, it comes prob. rdg, Heb adds it wakes up, behold it comes. 7 7 Doom is coming upon you, dweller in the land; the time is coming; the day is near, with confusion and the crash of thunder and the crash of thunder: prob. rdg, Heb unintelligible. 7 8 Now, in an instant, I will vent my rage upon you and let my anger spend itself. I will call you to account for your doings and bring your abominations upon your own heads. 7 9 I will neither pity nor spare; I will make you suffer for your doings and the abominations that continue in your midst. So you shall know that it is I, the LORD, who strike the blow.

7 10 Behold, the day! the doom is here, it has burst upon them. Injustice buds, insolence blossoms, 7 11 violence shoots up into injustice and wickedness. And it is all their fault, the fault of their turmoil and tumult and all their restless ways. 7 12 The time has come, the day has arrived; the buyer has no reason to be glad, and the seller none for regret, for I am angry at all their turmoil. 7 13 The seller will never go back on his bargain while either of them lives; for the bargain will never be reversed because of the turmoil, and no man will exert himself, even in his iniquity, as long as he lives. - Punishment for Israel's sins.  Eze.7.14-27

7 14 The trumpet has sounded and all is ready, but no one goes out to war.
