25:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
25:2 Son of man, set thy face against the Ammonites, and prophesy
25:3 And say unto the Ammonites, Hear the word of the
Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou saidst, Aha, against my
sanctuary, when it was profaned; and against the land of
Israel, when it was desolate; and against the house of Judah,
when they went into captivity;
25:4 Behold, therefore I will deliver thee to the men of the east
for a possession, and they shall set their palaces in thee,
and make their dwellings in thee: they shall eat thy fruit,
and they shall drink thy milk.
25:5 And I will make Rabbah a stable for camels, and the Ammonites
a couching place for flocks: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
25:6 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast clapped thine
hands, and stamped with the feet, and rejoiced in heart with
all thy despite against the land of Israel;
25:7 Behold, therefore I will stretch out mine hand upon thee, and
will deliver thee for a spoil to the heathen; and I will cut
thee off from the people, and I will cause thee to perish out
of the countries: I will destroy thee; and thou shalt know
that I am the LORD.
25:8 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Moab and Seir do say,
Behold, the house of Judah is like unto all the heathen;
25:9 Therefore, behold, I will open the side of Moab from the
cities, from his cities which are on his frontiers, the glory
of the country, Bethjeshimoth, Baalmeon, and Kiriathaim,
25:10 Unto the men of the east with the Ammonites, and will give
them in possession, that the Ammonites may not be remembered
among the nations.
25:11 And I will execute judgments upon Moab; and they shall know
that I am the LORD.
25:12 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because that Edom hath dealt against
the house of Judah by taking vengeance, and hath greatly
offended, and revenged himself upon them;
25:13 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also stretch out
mine hand upon Edom, and will cut off man and beast from it;
and I will make it desolate from Teman; and they of Dedan
shall fall by the sword.
25:14 And I will lay my vengeance upon Edom by the hand of my people
Israel: and they shall do in Edom according to mine anger and
according to my fury; and they shall know my vengeance, saith
the Lord GOD.
25:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the Philistines have dealt by
revenge, and have taken vengeance with a despiteful heart, to
destroy it for the old hatred;
25:16 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will stretch out
mine hand upon the Philistines, and I will cut off the
Cherethims, and destroy the remnant of the sea coast.
25:17 And I will execute great vengeance upon them with furious
rebukes; and they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall
lay my vengeance upon them.
26:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first day of
the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
26:2 Son of man, because that Tyrus hath said against Jerusalem,
Aha, she is broken that was the gates of the people: she is
turned unto me: I shall be replenished, now she is laid waste:
26:3 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee,
O Tyrus, and will cause many nations to come up against thee,
as the sea causeth his waves to come up.
26:4 And they shall destroy the walls of Tyrus, and break down her
towers: I will also scrape her dust from her, and make her
like the top of a rock.
26:5 It shall be a place for the spreading of nets in the midst of
the sea: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD: and it
shall become a spoil to the nations.
26:6 And her daughters which are in the field shall be slain by the
sword; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
26:7 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring upon Tyrus
Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon, a king of kings, from the
north, with horses, and with chariots, and with horsemen, and
companies, and much people.
26:8 He shall slay with the sword thy daughters in the field: and
he shall make a fort against thee, and cast a mount against
thee, and lift up the buckler against thee.
26:9 And he shall set engines of war against thy walls, and with
his axes he shall break down thy towers.
26:10 By reason of the abundance of his horses their dust shall
cover thee: thy walls shall shake at the noise of the
horsemen, and of the wheels, and of the chariots, when he
shall enter into thy gates, as men enter into a city wherein
is made a breach.
26:11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he tread down all thy
streets: he shall slay thy people by the sword, and thy strong
garrisons shall go down to the ground.
26:12 And they shall make a spoil of thy riches, and make a prey of
thy merchandise: and they shall break down thy walls, and
destroy thy pleasant houses: and they shall lay thy stones and
thy timber and thy dust in the midst of the water.
26:13 And I will cause the noise of thy songs to cease; and the
sound of thy harps shall be no more heard.
26:14 And I will make thee like the top of a rock: thou shalt be a
place to spread nets upon; thou shalt be built no more: for I
the LORD have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
26:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD to Tyrus; Shall not the isles shake at
the sound of thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the
slaughter is made in the midst of thee?
26:16 Then all the princes of the sea shall come down from their
thrones, and lay away their robes, and put off their broidered
garments: they shall clothe themselves with trembling; they
shall sit upon the ground, and shall tremble at every moment,
and be astonished at thee.
26:17 And they shall take up a lamentation for thee, and say to
thee, How art thou destroyed, that wast inhabited of seafaring
men, the renowned city, which wast strong in the sea, she and
her inhabitants, which cause their terror to be on all that
26:18 Now shall the isles tremble in the day of thy fall; yea, the
isles that are in the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.
26:19 For thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall make thee a desolate
city, like the cities that are not inhabited; when I shall
bring up the deep upon thee, and great waters shall cover
26:20 When I shall bring thee down with them that descend into the
pit, with the people of old time, and shall set thee in the
low parts of the earth, in places desolate of old, with them
that go down to the pit, that thou be not inhabited; and I
shall set glory in the land of the living;
26:21 I will make thee a terror, and thou shalt be no more: though
thou be sought for, yet shalt thou never be found again, saith
the Lord GOD.
27:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
27:2 Now, thou son of man, take up a lamentation for Tyrus;
27:3 And say unto Tyrus, O thou that art situate at the entry of
the sea, which art a merchant of the people for many isles,
Thus saith the Lord GOD; O Tyrus, thou hast said, I am of
27:4 Thy borders are in the midst of the seas, thy builders have
perfected thy beauty.
27:5 They have made all thy ship boards of fir trees of Senir: they
have taken cedars from Lebanon to make masts for thee.
27:6 Of the oaks of Bashan have they made thine oars; the company
of the Ashurites have made thy benches of ivory, brought out
of the isles of Chittim.
27:7 Fine linen with broidered work from Egypt was that which thou
spreadest forth to be thy sail; blue and purple from the isles
of Elishah was that which covered thee.
27:8 The inhabitants of Zidon and Arvad were thy mariners: thy wise
men, O Tyrus, that were in thee, were thy pilots.
27:9 The ancients of Gebal and the wise men thereof were in thee
thy calkers: all the ships of the sea with their mariners were
in thee to occupy thy merchandise.
27:10 They of Persia and of Lud and of Phut were in thine army, thy
men of war: they hanged the shield and helmet in thee; they
set forth thy comeliness.
27:11 The men of Arvad with thine army were upon thy walls round
about, and the Gammadims were in thy towers: they hanged their
shields upon thy walls round about; they have made thy beauty
27:12 Tarshish was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of all
kind of riches; with silver, iron, tin, and lead, they traded
in thy fairs.
27:13 Javan, Tubal, and Meshech, they were thy merchants: they
traded the persons of men and vessels of brass in thy market.
27:14 They of the house of Togarmah traded in thy fairs with horses
and horsemen and mules.
27:15 The men of Dedan were thy merchants; many isles were the
merchandise of thine hand: they brought thee for a present
horns of ivory and ebony.
27:16 Syria was thy merchant by reason of the multitude of the wares
of thy making: they occupied in thy fairs with emeralds,
purple, and broidered work, and fine linen, and coral, and
27:17 Judah, and the land of Israel, they were thy merchants: they
traded in thy market wheat of Minnith, and Pannag, and honey,
and oil, and balm.
27:18 Damascus was thy merchant in the multitude of the wares of thy
making, for the multitude of all riches; in the wine of
Helbon, and white wool.
27:19 Dan also and Javan going to and fro occupied in thy fairs:
bright iron, cassia, and calamus, were in thy market.
27:20 Dedan was thy merchant in precious clothes for chariots.
27:21 Arabia, and all the princes of Kedar, they occupied with thee
in lambs, and rams, and goats: in these were they thy
27:22 The merchants of Sheba and Raamah, they were thy merchants:
they occupied in thy fairs with chief of all spices, and with
all precious stones, and gold.
27:23 Haran, and Canneh, and Eden, the merchants of Sheba, Asshur,
and Chilmad, were thy merchants.
27:24 These were thy merchants in all sorts of things, in blue
clothes, and broidered work, and in chests of rich apparel,
bound with cords, and made of cedar, among thy merchandise.
27:25 The ships of Tarshish did sing of thee in thy market: and thou
wast replenished, and made very glorious in the midst of the
27:26 Thy rowers have brought thee into great waters: the east wind
hath broken thee in the midst of the seas.
27:27 Thy riches, and thy fairs, thy merchandise, thy mariners, and
thy pilots, thy calkers, and the occupiers of thy merchandise,
and all thy men of war, that are in thee, and in all thy
company which is in the midst of thee, shall fall into the
midst of the seas in the day of thy ruin.
27:28 The suburbs shall shake at the sound of the cry of thy pilots.
27:29 And all that handle the oar, the mariners, and all the pilots
of the sea, shall come down from their ships, they shall stand
upon the land;
27:30 And shall cause their voice to be heard against thee, and
shall cry bitterly, and shall cast up dust upon their heads,
they shall wallow themselves in the ashes:
27:31 And they shall make themselves utterly bald for thee, and gird
them with sackcloth, and they shall weep for thee with
bitterness of heart and bitter wailing.
27:32 And in their wailing they shall take up a lamentation for
thee, and lament over thee, saying, What city is like Tyrus,
like the destroyed in the midst of the sea?
27:33 When thy wares went forth out of the seas, thou filledst many
people; thou didst enrich the kings of the earth with the
multitude of thy riches and of thy merchandise.
27:34 In the time when thou shalt be broken by the seas in the
depths of the waters thy merchandise and all thy company in
the midst of thee shall fall.
27:35 All the inhabitants of the isles shall be astonished at thee,
and their kings shall be sore afraid, they shall be troubled
in their countenance.
27:36 The merchants among the people shall hiss at thee; thou shalt
be a terror, and never shalt be any more.
28:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
28:2 Son of man, say unto the prince of Tyrus, Thus saith the
Lord GOD; Because thine heart is lifted up, and thou hast said, I
am a God, I sit in the seat of God, in the midst of the seas;
yet thou art a man, and not God, though thou set thine heart
as the heart of God:
28:3 Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that
they can hide from thee:
28:4 With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten
thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy
28:5 By thy great wisdom and by thy traffick hast thou increased
thy riches, and thine heart is lifted up because of thy
28:6 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast set thine
heart as the heart of God;
28:7 Behold, therefore I will bring strangers upon thee, the
terrible of the nations: and they shall draw their swords
against the beauty of thy wisdom, and they shall defile thy
28:8 They shall bring thee down to the pit, and thou shalt die the
deaths of them that are slain in the midst of the seas.
28:9 Wilt thou yet say before him that slayeth thee, I am God? but
thou shalt be a man, and no God, in the hand of him that
28:10 Thou shalt die the deaths of the uncircumcised by the hand of
strangers: for I have spoken it, saith the Lord GOD.
28:11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
28:12 Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and
say unto him, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Thou sealest up the
sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone
was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the
beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald,
and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets
and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou
28:14 Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set
thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast
walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.
28:15 Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast
created, till iniquity was found in thee.
28:16 By the multitude of thy merchandise they have filled the midst
of thee with violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will
cast thee as profane out of the mountain of God: and I will
destroy thee, O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones
28:17 Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast
corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I will cast
thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings, that they
may behold thee.
28:18 Thou hast defiled thy sanctuaries by the multitude of thine
iniquities, by the iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I
bring forth a fire from the midst of thee, it shall devour
thee, and I will bring thee to ashes upon the earth in the
sight of all them that behold thee.
28:19 All they that know thee among the people shall be astonished
at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never shalt thou be any
28:20 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
28:21 Son of man, set thy face against Zidon, and prophesy against
28:22 And say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against thee, O
Zidon; and I will be glorified in the midst of thee: and they
shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall have executed
judgments in her, and shall be sanctified in her.
28:23 For I will send into her pestilence, and blood into her
streets; and the wounded shall be judged in the midst of her
by the sword upon her on every side; and they shall know that
I am the LORD.
28:24 And there shall be no more a pricking brier unto the house of
Israel, nor any grieving thorn of all that are round about
them, that despised them; and they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
28:25 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When I shall have gathered the house
of Israel from the people among whom they are scattered, and
shall be sanctified in them in the sight of the heathen, then
shall they dwell in their land that I have given to my servant
28:26 And they shall dwell safely therein, and shall build houses,
and plant vineyards; yea, they shall dwell with confidence,
when I have executed judgments upon all those that despise
them round about them; and they shall know that I am the LORD their God.
29:1 In the tenth year, in the tenth month, in the twelfth day of
the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
29:2 Son of man, set thy face against Pharaoh king of Egypt, and
prophesy against him, and against all Egypt:
29:3 Speak, and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
thee, Pharaoh king of Egypt, the great dragon that lieth in
the midst of his rivers, which hath said, My river is mine
own, and I have made it for myself.
29:4 But I will put hooks in thy jaws, and I will cause the fish of
thy rivers to stick unto thy scales, and I will bring thee up
out of the midst of thy rivers, and all the fish of thy rivers
shall stick unto thy scales.
29:5 And I will leave thee thrown into the wilderness, thee and all
the fish of thy rivers: thou shalt fall upon the open fields;
thou shalt not be brought together, nor gathered: I have given
thee for meat to the beasts of the field and to the fowls of
29:6 And all the inhabitants of Egypt shall know that I am the
LORD, because they have been a staff of reed to the house of
29:7 When they took hold of thee by thy hand, thou didst break, and
rend all their shoulder: and when they leaned upon thee, thou
brakest, and madest all their loins to be at a stand.
29:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will bring a
sword upon thee, and cut off man and beast out of thee.
29:9 And the land of Egypt shall be desolate and waste; and they
shall know that I am the LORD: because he hath said, The river
is mine, and I have made it.
29:10 Behold, therefore I am against thee, and against thy rivers,
and I will make the land of Egypt utterly waste and desolate,
from the tower of Syene even unto the border of Ethiopia.
29:11 No foot of man shall pass through it, nor foot of beast shall
pass through it, neither shall it be inhabited forty years.
29:12 And I will make the land of Egypt desolate in the midst of the
countries that are desolate, and her cities among the cities
that are laid waste shall be desolate forty years: and I will
scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will disperse
them through the countries.
29:13 Yet thus saith the Lord GOD; At the end of forty years will I
gather the Egyptians from the people whither they were
29:14 And I will bring again the captivity of Egypt, and will cause
them to return into the land of Pathros, into the land of
their habitation; and they shall be there a base kingdom.
29:15 It shall be the basest of the kingdoms; neither shall it exalt
itself any more above the nations: for I will diminish them,
that they shall no more rule over the nations.
29:16 And it shall be no more the confidence of the house of Israel,
which bringeth their iniquity to remembrance, when they shall
look after them: but they shall know that I am the Lord GOD.
29:17 And it came to pass in the seven and twentieth year, in the
first month, in the first day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
29:18 Son of man, Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon caused his army to
serve a great service against Tyrus: every head was made bald,
and every shoulder was peeled: yet had he no wages, nor his
army, for Tyrus, for the service that he had served against
29:19 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will give the
land of Egypt unto Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon; and he
shall take her multitude, and take her spoil, and take her
prey; and it shall be the wages for his army.
29:20 I have given him the land of Egypt for his labour wherewith he
served against it, because they wrought for me, saith the Lord GOD.
29:21 In that day will I cause the horn of the house of Israel to
bud forth, and I will give thee the opening of the mouth in
the midst of them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
30:1 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
30:2 Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Howl
ye, Woe worth the day!
30:3 For the day is near, even the day of the LORD is near, a
cloudy day; it shall be the time of the heathen.
30:4 And the sword shall come upon Egypt, and great pain shall be
in Ethiopia, when the slain shall fall in Egypt, and they
shall take away her multitude, and her foundations shall be
30:5 Ethiopia, and Libya, and Lydia, and all the mingled people,
and Chub, and the men of the land that is in league, shall
fall with them by the sword.
30:6 Thus saith the LORD; They also that uphold Egypt shall fall;
and the pride of her power shall come down: from the tower of
Syene shall they fall in it by the sword, saith the Lord GOD.
30:7 And they shall be desolate in the midst of the countries that
are desolate, and her cities shall be in the midst of the
cities that are wasted.
30:8 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I have set a fire
in Egypt, and when all her helpers shall be destroyed.
30:9 In that day shall messengers go forth from me in ships to make
the careless Ethiopians afraid, and great pain shall come upon
them, as in the day of Egypt: for, lo, it cometh.
30:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also make the multitude of
Egypt to cease by the hand of Nebuchadrezzar king of Babylon.
30:11 He and his people with him, the terrible of the nations, shall
be brought to destroy the land: and they shall draw their
swords against Egypt, and fill the land with the slain.
30:12 And I will make the rivers dry, and sell the land into the
hand of the wicked: and I will make the land waste, and all
that is therein, by the hand of strangers: I the LORD have
30:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will also destroy the idols, and I
will cause their images to cease out of Noph; and there shall
be no more a prince of the land of Egypt: and I will put a
fear in the land of Egypt.
30:14 And I will make Pathros desolate, and will set fire in Zoan,
and will execute judgments in No.
30:15 And I will pour my fury upon Sin, the strength of Egypt; and I
will cut off the multitude of No.
30:16 And I will set fire in Egypt: Sin shall have great pain, and
No shall be rent asunder, and Noph shall have distresses
30:17 The young men of Aven and of Pibeseth shall fall by the sword:
and these cities shall go into captivity.
30:18 At Tehaphnehes also the day shall be darkened, when I shall
break there the yokes of Egypt: and the pomp of her strength
shall cease in her: as for her, a cloud shall cover her, and
her daughters shall go into captivity.
30:19 Thus will I execute judgments in Egypt: and they shall know
that I am the LORD.
30:20 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the first month,
in the seventh day of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
30:21 Son of man, I have broken the arm of Pharaoh king of Egypt;
and, lo, it shall not be bound up to be healed, to put a
roller to bind it, to make it strong to hold the sword.
30:22 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against
Pharaoh king of Egypt, and will break his arms, the strong,
and that which was broken; and I will cause the sword to fall
out of his hand.
30:23 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and will
disperse them through the countries.
30:24 And I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and put
my sword in his hand: but I will break Pharaoh's arms, and he
shall groan before him with the groanings of a deadly wounded
30:25 But I will strengthen the arms of the king of Babylon, and the
arms of Pharaoh shall fall down; and they shall know that I am
the LORD, when I shall put my sword into the hand of the king
of Babylon, and he shall stretch it out upon the land of
30:26 And I will scatter the Egyptians among the nations, and
disperse them among the countries; and they shall know that I
am the LORD.
31:1 And it came to pass in the eleventh year, in the third month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came
unto me, saying,
31:2 Son of man, speak unto Pharaoh king of Egypt, and to his
multitude; Whom art thou like in thy greatness?
31:3 Behold, the Assyrian was a cedar in Lebanon with fair
branches, and with a shadowing shroud, and of an high stature;
and his top was among the thick boughs.
31:4 The waters made him great, the deep set him up on high with
her rivers running round about his plants, and sent her little
rivers unto all the trees of the field.
31:5 Therefore his height was exalted above all the trees of the
field, and his boughs were multiplied, and his branches became
long because of the multitude of waters, when he shot forth.
31:6 All the fowls of heaven made their nests in his boughs, and
under his branches did all the beasts of the field bring forth
their young, and under his shadow dwelt all great nations.
31:7 Thus was he fair in his greatness, in the length of his
branches: for his root was by great waters.
31:8 The cedars in the garden of God could not hide him: the fir
trees were not like his boughs, and the chestnut trees were
not like his branches; nor any tree in the garden of God was
like unto him in his beauty.
31:9 I have made him fair by the multitude of his branches: so that
all the trees of Eden, that were in the garden of God, envied
31:10 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thou hast lifted up
thyself in height, and he hath shot up his top among the thick
boughs, and his heart is lifted up in his height;
31:11 I have therefore delivered him into the hand of the mighty one
of the heathen; he shall surely deal with him: I have driven
him out for his wickedness.
31:12 And strangers, the terrible of the nations, have cut him off,
and have left him: upon the mountains and in all the valleys
his branches are fallen, and his boughs are broken by all the
rivers of the land; and all the people of the earth are gone
down from his shadow, and have left him.
31:13 Upon his ruin shall all the fowls of the heaven remain, and
all the beasts of the field shall be upon his branches:
31:14 To the end that none of all the trees by the waters exalt
themselves for their height, neither shoot up their top among
the thick boughs, neither their trees stand up in their
height, all that drink water: for they are all delivered unto
death, to the nether parts of the earth, in the midst of the
children of men, with them that go down to the pit.
31:15 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day when he went down to the
grave I caused a mourning: I covered the deep for him, and I
restrained the floods thereof, and the great waters were
stayed: and I caused Lebanon to mourn for him, and all the
trees of the field fainted for him.
31:16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, when I
cast him down to hell with them that descend into the pit: and
all the trees of Eden, the choice and best of Lebanon, all
that drink water, shall be comforted in the nether parts of
31:17 They also went down into hell with him unto them that be slain
with the sword; and they that were his arm, that dwelt under
his shadow in the midst of the heathen.
31:18 To whom art thou thus like in glory and in greatness among the
trees of Eden? yet shalt thou be brought down with the trees
of Eden unto the nether parts of the earth: thou shalt lie in
the midst of the uncircumcised with them that be slain by the
sword. This is Pharaoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
32:1 And it came to pass in the twelfth year, in the twelfth month,
in the first day of the month, that the word of the LORD came
unto me, saying,
32:2 Son of man, take up a lamentation for Pharaoh king of Egypt,
and say unto him, Thou art like a young lion of the nations,
and thou art as a whale in the seas: and thou camest forth
with thy rivers, and troubledst the waters with thy feet, and
fouledst their rivers.
32:3 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will therefore spread out my net
over thee with a company of many people; and they shall bring
thee up in my net.
32:4 Then will I leave thee upon the land, I will cast thee forth
upon the open field, and will cause all the fowls of the
heaven to remain upon thee, and I will fill the beasts of the
whole earth with thee.
32:5 And I will lay thy flesh upon the mountains, and fill the
valleys with thy height.
32:6 I will also water with thy blood the land wherein thou
swimmest, even to the mountains; and the rivers shall be full
32:7 And when I shall put thee out, I will cover the heaven, and
make the stars thereof dark; I will cover the sun with a
cloud, and the moon shall not give her light.
32:8 All the bright lights of heaven will I make dark over thee,
and set darkness upon thy land, saith the Lord GOD.
32:9 I will also vex the hearts of many people, when I shall bring
thy destruction among the nations, into the countries which
thou hast not known.
32:10 Yea, I will make many people amazed at thee, and their kings
shall be horribly afraid for thee, when I shall brandish my
sword before them; and they shall tremble at every moment,
every man for his own life, in the day of thy fall.
32:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; The sword of the king of Babylon
shall come upon thee.
32:12 By the swords of the mighty will I cause thy multitude to
fall, the terrible of the nations, all of them: and they shall
spoil the pomp of Egypt, and all the multitude thereof shall
32:13 I will destroy also all the beasts thereof from beside the
great waters; neither shall the foot of man trouble them any
more, nor the hoofs of beasts trouble them.
32:14 Then will I make their waters deep, and cause their rivers to
run like oil, saith the Lord GOD.
32:15 When I shall make the land of Egypt desolate, and the country
shall be destitute of that whereof it was full, when I shall
smite all them that dwell therein, then shall they know that I
am the LORD.
32:16 This is the lamentation wherewith they shall lament her: the
daughters of the nations shall lament her: they shall lament
for her, even for Egypt, and for all her multitude, saith the Lord GOD.
32:17 It came to pass also in the twelfth year, in the fifteenth day
of the month, that the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
32:18 Son of man, wail for the multitude of Egypt, and cast them
down, even her, and the daughters of the famous nations, unto
the nether parts of the earth, with them that go down into the
32:19 Whom dost thou pass in beauty? go down, and be thou laid with
32:20 They shall fall in the midst of them that are slain by the
sword: she is delivered to the sword: draw her and all her
32:21 The strong among the mighty shall speak to him out of the
midst of hell with them that help him: they are gone down,
they lie uncircumcised, slain by the sword.
32:22 Asshur is there and all her company: his graves are about him:
all of them slain, fallen by the sword:
32:23 Whose graves are set in the sides of the pit, and her company
is round about her grave: all of them slain, fallen by the
sword, which caused terror in the land of the living.
32:24 There is Elam and all her multitude round about her grave, all
of them slain, fallen by the sword, which are gone down
uncircumcised into the nether parts of the earth, which caused
their terror in the land of the living; yet have they borne
their shame with them that go down to the pit.
32:25 They have set her a bed in the midst of the slain with all her
multitude: her graves are round about him: all of them
uncircumcised, slain by the sword: though their terror was
caused in the land of the living, yet have they borne their
shame with them that go down to the pit: he is put in the
midst of them that be slain.
32:26 There is Meshech, Tubal, and all her multitude: her graves are
round about him: all of them uncircumcised, slain by the
sword, though they caused their terror in the land of the
32:27 And they shall not lie with the mighty that are fallen of the
uncircumcised, which are gone down to hell with their weapons
of war: and they have laid their swords under their heads, but
their iniquities shall be upon their bones, though they were
the terror of the mighty in the land of the living.
32:28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst of the uncircumcised,
and shalt lie with them that are slain with the sword.
32:29 There is Edom, her kings, and all her princes, which with
their might are laid by them that were slain by the sword:
they shall lie with the uncircumcised, and with them that go
down to the pit.
32:30 There be the princes of the north, all of them, and all the
Zidonians, which are gone down with the slain; with their
terror they are ashamed of their might; and they lie
uncircumcised with them that be slain by the sword, and bear
their shame with them that go down to the pit.
32:31 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be comforted over all his
multitude, even Pharaoh and all his army slain by the sword,
saith the Lord GOD.
32:32 For I have caused my terror in the land of the living: and he
shall be laid in the midst of the uncircumcised with them that
are slain with the sword, even Pharaoh and all his multitude,
saith the Lord GOD.
33:1 Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
33:2 Son of man, speak to the children of thy people, and say unto
them, When I bring the sword upon a land, if the people of the
land take a man of their coasts, and set him for their
33:3 If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the
trumpet, and warn the people;
33:4 Then whosoever heareth the sound of the trumpet, and taketh
not warning; if the sword come, and take him away, his blood
shall be upon his own head.
33:5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and took not warning; his
blood shall be upon him. But he that taketh warning shall
deliver his soul.
33:6 But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the
trumpet, and the people be not warned; if the sword come, and
take any person from among them, he is taken away in his
iniquity; but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand.
33:7 So thou, O son of man, I have set thee a watchman unto the
house of Israel; therefore thou shalt hear the word at my
mouth, and warn them from me.
33:8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked man, thou shalt surely
die; if thou dost not speak to warn the wicked from his way,
that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will
I require at thine hand.
33:9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of his way to turn from
it; if he do not turn from his way, he shall die in his
iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
33:10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak unto the house of Israel;
Thus ye speak, saying, If our transgressions and our sins be
upon us, and we pine away in them, how should we then live?
33:11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the Lord GOD, I have no
pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn
from his way and live: turn ye, turn ye from your evil ways;
for why will ye die, O house of Israel?
33:12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto the children of thy
people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver
him in the day of his transgression: as for the wickedness of
the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he
turneth from his wickedness; neither shall the righteous be
able to live for his righteousness in the day that he sinneth.
33:13 When I shall say to the righteous, that he shall surely live;
if he trust to his own righteousness, and commit iniquity, all
his righteousnesses shall not be remembered; but for his
iniquity that he hath committed, he shall die for it.
33:14 Again, when I say unto the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; if
he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
33:15 If the wicked restore the pledge, give again that he had
robbed, walk in the statutes of life, without committing
iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
33:16 None of his sins that he hath committed shall be mentioned
unto him: he hath done that which is lawful and right; he
shall surely live.
33:17 Yet the children of thy people say, The way of the
Lord is not
equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
33:18 When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and
committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
33:19 But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which
is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
33:20 Yet ye say, The way of the Lord is not equal. O ye house of
Israel, I will judge you every one after his ways.
33:21 And it came to pass in the twelfth year of our captivity, in
the tenth month, in the fifth day of the month, that one that
had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me, saying, The city is
33:22 Now the hand of the LORD was upon me in the evening, afore he
that was escaped came; and had opened my mouth, until he came
to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no
33:23 Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
33:24 Son of man, they that inhabit those wastes of the land of
Israel speak, saying, Abraham was one, and he inherited the
land: but we are many; the land is given us for inheritance.
33:25 Wherefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Ye eat with
the blood, and lift up your eyes toward your idols, and shed
blood: and shall ye possess the land?
33:26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile
every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?
33:27 Say thou thus unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; As I live,
surely they that are in the wastes shall fall by the sword,
and him that is in the open field will I give to the beasts to
be devoured, and they that be in the forts and in the caves
shall die of the pestilence.
33:28 For I will lay the land most desolate, and the pomp of her
strength shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be
desolate, that none shall pass through.
33:29 Then shall they know that I am the LORD, when I have laid the
land most desolate because of all their abominations which
they have committed.
33:30 Also, thou son of man, the children of thy people still are
talking against thee by the walls and in the doors of the
houses, and speak one to another, every one to his brother,
saying, Come, I pray you, and hear what is the word that
cometh forth from the LORD.
33:31 And they come unto thee as the people cometh, and they sit
before thee as my people, and they hear thy words, but they
will not do them: for with their mouth they shew much love,
but their heart goeth after their covetousness.
33:32 And, lo, thou art unto them as a very lovely song of one that
hath a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument: for
they hear thy words, but they do them not.
33:33 And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall
they know that a prophet hath been among them.
34:1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
34:2 Son of man, prophesy against the shepherds of Israel,
prophesy, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD unto the
shepherds; Woe be to the shepherds of Israel that do feed
themselves! should not the shepherds feed the flocks?
34:3 Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with the wool, ye kill them
that are fed: but ye feed not the flock.
34:4 The diseased have ye not strengthened, neither have ye healed
that which was sick, neither have ye bound up that which was
broken, neither have ye brought again that which was driven
away, neither have ye sought that which was lost; but with
force and with cruelty have ye ruled them.
34:5 And they were scattered, because there is no shepherd: and
they became meat to all the beasts of the field, when they
34:6 My sheep wandered through all the mountains, and upon every
high hill: yea, my flock was scattered upon all the face of
the earth, and none did search or seek after them.
34:7 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
34:8 As I live, saith the Lord GOD, surely because my flock became
a prey, and my flock became meat to every beast of the field,
because there was no shepherd, neither did my shepherds search
for my flock, but the shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my
34:9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the word of the LORD;
34:10 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I am against the shepherds;
and I will require my flock at their hand, and cause them to
cease from feeding the flock; neither shall the shepherds feed
themselves any more; for I will deliver my flock from their
mouth, that they may not be meat for them.
34:11 For thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, will both
search my sheep, and seek them out.
34:12 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is
among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my
sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have
been scattered in the cloudy and dark day.
34:13 And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them
from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and
feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the rivers, and in
all the inhabited places of the country.
34:14 I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high
mountains of Israel shall their fold be: there shall they lie
in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the
mountains of Israel.
34:15 I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down, saith
the Lord GOD.
34:16 I will seek that which was lost, and bring again that which
was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and
will strengthen that which was sick: but I will destroy the
fat and the strong; I will feed them with judgment.
34:17 And as for you, O my flock, thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I
judge between cattle and cattle, between the rams and the he
34:18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good
pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of
your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye
must foul the residue with your feet?
34:19 And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with
your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your
34:20 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD unto them; Behold, I, even
I, will judge between the fat cattle and between the lean
34:21 Because ye have thrust with side and with shoulder, and pushed
all the diseased with your horns, till ye have scattered them
34:22 Therefore will I save my flock, and they shall no more be a
prey; and I will judge between cattle and cattle.
34:23 And I will set up one shepherd over them, and he shall feed
them, even my servant David; he shall feed them, and he shall
be their shepherd.
34:24 And I the LORD will be their God, and my servant David a
prince among them; I the LORD have spoken it.
34:25 And I will make with them a covenant of peace, and will cause
the evil beasts to cease out of the land: and they shall dwell
safely in the wilderness, and sleep in the woods.
34:26 And I will make them and the places round about my hill a
blessing; and I will cause the shower to come down in his
season; there shall be showers of blessing.
34:27 And the tree of the field shall yield her fruit, and the earth
shall yield her increase, and they shall be safe in their
land, and shall know that I am the LORD, when I have broken
the bands of their yoke, and delivered them out of the hand of
those that served themselves of them.
34:28 And they shall no more be a prey to the heathen, neither shall
the beast of the land devour them; but they shall dwell
safely, and none shall make them afraid.
34:29 And I will raise up for them a plant of renown, and they shall
be no more consumed with hunger in the land, neither bear the
shame of the heathen any more.
34:30 Thus shall they know that I the LORD their God am with them,
and that they, even the house of Israel, are my people, saith
the Lord GOD.
34:31 And ye my flock, the flock of my pasture, are men, and I am
your God, saith the Lord GOD.
35:1 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
35:2 Son of man, set thy face against mount Seir, and prophesy
35:3 And say unto it, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, O mount
Seir, I am against thee, and I will stretch out mine hand
against thee, and I will make thee most desolate.
35:4 I will lay thy cities waste, and thou shalt be desolate, and
thou shalt know that I am the LORD.
35:5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the
blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in
the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity
had an end:
35:6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will prepare thee
unto blood, and blood shall pursue thee: sith thou hast not
hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.
35:7 Thus will I make mount Seir most desolate, and cut off from it
him that passeth out and him that returneth.
35:8 And I will fill his mountains with his slain men: in thy
hills, and in thy valleys, and in all thy rivers, shall they
fall that are slain with the sword.
35:9 I will make thee perpetual desolations, and thy cities shall
not return: and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
35:10 Because thou hast said, These two nations and these two
countries shall be mine, and we will possess it; whereas the LORD was there:
35:11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD, I will even do
according to thine anger, and according to thine envy which
thou hast used out of thy hatred against them; and I will make
myself known among them, when I have judged thee.
35:12 And thou shalt know that I am the LORD, and that I have heard
all thy blasphemies which thou hast spoken against the
mountains of Israel, saying, They are laid desolate, they are
given us to consume.
35:13 Thus with your mouth ye have boasted against me, and have
multiplied your words against me: I have heard them.
35:14 Thus saith the Lord GOD; When the whole earth rejoiceth, I
will make thee desolate.
35:15 As thou didst rejoice at the inheritance of the house of
Israel, because it was desolate, so will I do unto thee: thou
shalt be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea, even all of
it: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
36:1 Also, thou son of man, prophesy unto the mountains of Israel,
and say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the LORD:
36:2 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because the enemy hath said against
you, Aha, even the ancient high places are ours in possession:
36:3 Therefore prophesy and say, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because
they have made you desolate, and swallowed you up on every
side, that ye might be a possession unto the residue of the
heathen, and ye are taken up in the lips of talkers, and are
an infamy of the people:
36:4 Therefore, ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the
Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the
hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys, to the desolate
wastes, and to the cities that are forsaken, which became a
prey and derision to the residue of the heathen that are round
36:5 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Surely in the fire of my
jealousy have I spoken against the residue of the heathen, and
against all Idumea, which have appointed my land into their
possession with the joy of all their heart, with despiteful
minds, to cast it out for a prey.
36:6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land of Israel, and say unto
the mountains, and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the
valleys, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I have spoken in my
jealousy and in my fury, because ye have borne the shame of
36:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; I have lifted up mine hand,
Surely the heathen that are about you, they shall bear their
36:8 But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall shoot forth your
branches, and yield your fruit to my people of Israel; for
they are at hand to come.
36:9 For, behold, I am for you, and I will turn unto you, and ye
shall be tilled and sown:
36:10 And I will multiply men upon you, all the house of Israel,
even all of it: and the cities shall be inhabited, and the
wastes shall be builded:
36:11 And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall
increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old
estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings:
and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
36:12 Yea, I will cause men to walk upon you, even my people Israel;
and they shall possess thee, and thou shalt be their
inheritance, and thou shalt no more henceforth bereave them of
36:13 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because they say unto you, Thou land
devourest up men, and hast bereaved thy nations:
36:14 Therefore thou shalt devour men no more, neither bereave thy
nations any more, saith the Lord GOD.
36:15 Neither will I cause men to hear in thee the shame of the
heathen any more, neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the
people any more, neither shalt thou cause thy nations to fall
any more, saith the Lord GOD.
36:16 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
36:17 Son of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land,
they defiled it by their own way and by their doings: their
way was before me as the uncleanness of a removed woman.
36:18 Wherefore I poured my fury upon them for the blood that they
had shed upon the land, and for their idols wherewith they had
36:19 And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were
dispersed through the countries: according to their way and
according to their doings I judged them.
36:20 And when they entered unto the heathen, whither they went,
they profaned my holy name, when they said to them, These are
the people of the LORD, and are gone forth out of his land.
36:21 But I had pity for mine holy name, which the house of Israel
had profaned among the heathen, whither they went.
36:22 Therefore say unto the house of Israel, thus saith the
Lord GOD; I do not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for
mine holy name's sake, which ye have profaned among the
heathen, whither ye went.
36:23 And I will sanctify my great name, which was profaned among
the heathen, which ye have profaned in the midst of them; and
the heathen shall know that I am the LORD, saith the Lord GOD,
when I shall be sanctified in you before their eyes.
36:24 For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out
of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.
36:25 Then will I sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be
clean: from all your filthiness, and from all your idols, will
I cleanse you.
36:26 A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put
within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your
flesh, and I will give you an heart of flesh.
36:27 And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in
my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgments, and do them.
36:28 And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers;
and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.
36:29 I will also save you from all your uncleannesses: and I will
call for the corn, and will increase it, and lay no famine
36:30 And I will multiply the fruit of the tree, and the increase of
the field, that ye shall receive no more reproach of famine
among the heathen.
36:31 Then shall ye remember your own evil ways, and your doings
that were not good, and shall lothe yourselves in your own
sight for your iniquities and for your abominations.
36:32 Not for your sakes do I this, saith the Lord GOD, be it known
unto you: be ashamed and confounded for your own ways, O house
36:33 Thus saith the Lord GOD; In the day that I shall have cleansed
you from all your iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in
the cities, and the wastes shall be builded.
36:34 And the desolate land shall be tilled, whereas it lay desolate
in the sight of all that passed by.
36:35 And they shall say, This land that was desolate is become like
the garden of Eden; and the waste and desolate and ruined
cities are become fenced, and are inhabited.
36:36 Then the heathen that are left round about you shall know that
I the LORD build the ruined places, and plant that that was
desolate: I the LORD have spoken it, and I will do it.
36:37 Thus saith the Lord GOD; I will yet for this be enquired of by
the house of Israel, to do it for them; I will increase them
with men like a flock.
36:38 As the holy flock, as the flock of Jerusalem in her solemn
feasts; so shall the waste cities be filled with flocks of
men: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
37:1 The hand of the LORD was upon me, and carried me out in the
spirit of the LORD, and set me down in the midst of the valley
which was full of bones,
37:2 And caused me to pass by them round about: and, behold, there
were very many in the open valley; and, lo, they were very
37:3 And he said unto me, Son of man, can these bones live? And I
answered, O Lord GOD, thou knowest.
37:4 Again he said unto me, Prophesy upon these bones, and say unto
them, O ye dry bones, hear the word of the LORD.
37:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD unto these bones; Behold, I will cause
breath to enter into you, and ye shall live:
37:6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon
you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye
shall live; and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
37:7 So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there
was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came
together, bone to his bone.
37:8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon
them, and the skin covered them above: but there was no breath
37:9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto the wind, prophesy, son of
man, and say to the wind, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Come from
the four winds, O breath, and breathe upon these slain, that
they may live.
37:10 So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into
them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an
exceeding great army.
37:11 Then he said unto me, Son of man, these bones are the whole
house of Israel: behold, they say, Our bones are dried, and
our hope is lost: we are cut off for our parts.
37:12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them, Thus saith the
Behold, O my people, I will open your graves, and cause you to
come up out of your graves, and bring you into the land of
37:13 And ye shall know that I am the LORD, when I have opened your
graves, O my people, and brought you up out of your graves,
37:14 And shall put my spirit in you, and ye shall live, and I shall
place you in your own land: then shall ye know that I the LORD have spoken it, and performed it, saith the
37:15 The word of the LORD came again unto me, saying,
37:16 Moreover, thou son of man, take thee one stick, and write upon
it, For Judah, and for the children of Israel his companions:
then take another stick, and write upon it, For Joseph, the
stick of Ephraim and for all the house of Israel his
37:17 And join them one to another into one stick; and they shall
become one in thine hand.
37:18 And when the children of thy people shall speak unto thee,
saying, Wilt thou not shew us what thou meanest by these?
37:19 Say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will take
the stick of Joseph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and the
tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put them with him, even
with the stick of Judah, and make them one stick, and they
shall be one in mine hand.
37:20 And the sticks whereon thou writest shall be in thine hand
before their eyes.
37:21 And say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will
take the children of Israel from among the heathen, whither
they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring
them into their own land:
37:22 And I will make them one nation in the land upon the mountains
of Israel; and one king shall be king to them all: and they
shall be no more two nations, neither shall they be divided
into two kingdoms any more at all.
37:23 Neither shall they defile themselves any more with their
idols, nor with their detestable things, nor with any of their
transgressions: but I will save them out of all their
dwellingplaces, wherein they have sinned, and will cleanse
them: so shall they be my people, and I will be their God.
37:24 And David my servant shall be king over them; and they all
shall have one shepherd: they shall also walk in my judgments,
and observe my statutes, and do them.
37:25 And they shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob
my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt; and they shall
dwell therein, even they, and their children, and their
children's children for ever: and my servant David shall be
their prince for ever.
37:26 Moreover I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall
be an everlasting covenant with them: and I will place them,
and multiply them, and will set my sanctuary in the midst of
them for evermore.
37:27 My tabernacle also shall be with them: yea, I will be their
God, and they shall be my people.
37:28 And the heathen shall know that I the LORD do sanctify Israel,
when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore.
