katapi HOME Ezekiel 11:1-13 - Jerusalem condemned.  Eze.11.1-13

11 1 A spirit Or wind lifted me up and brought me to the eastern gate of the LORD's house, the gate that faces east. By the doorway were twenty-five men, and I saw among them two of high office, Jaazaniah son of Azzur and Pelatiah son of Benaiah. 11 2 The LORD said to me, Man, it is these who are planning mischief and plotting trouble in this city, 11 3 saying to themselves, 'There will be no building of houses yet awhile; the city is a stewpot and we are the meat in it.' 11 4 Therefore, said he, prophesy against them, prophesy, O man.

11 5 Then the spirit of the LORD came suddenly upon me, and he told me to say, These are the words of the LORD: This is what you are saying to yourselves, you men of Israel; well do I know the thoughts that rise in your mind. 11 6 You have killed and killed in this city and heaped the streets with the slain. 11 7 These, therefore, are the words of the Lord GOD: The bodies of the slain that you have put there, it is they that are the meat. The city is indeed the stewpot, but I will take you out of it. 11 8 It is a sword that you fear, and a sword I will bring upon you, says the Lord GOD. 11 9 I will take you out of it; I will give you over to a foreign power; I will bring you to justice. 11 10 You too shall fall by the sword when I judge you on the frontier of Israel; thus you shall know that I am the LORD. 11 11 So the city will not be your stewpot, nor you the meat in it. On the frontier of Israel I will judge you; 11 12 thus you shall know that I am the LORD. You have not conformed to my statutes nor kept my laws, but you have followed the laws of the nations around you.

11 13 While I was prophesying, Pelatiah son of Benaiah fell dead; and I threw myself upon my face, crying aloud, 'O Lord GOD, must thou make an end of all the Israelites who are left?'
