Ezekiel 33 Text (WEB)
  1. The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
  2. Son of man, speak to the children of your people, and tell them, When I bring the sword on a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them, and set him for their watchman;
  3. if, when he sees the sword come on the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
  4. then whoever hears the sound of the trumpet, and doesn't take warning, if the sword come, and take him away, his blood shall be on his own head.
  5. He heard the sound of the trumpet, and didn't take warning; his blood shall be on him; whereas if he had taken warning, he would have delivered his soul.
  6. But if the watchman sees the sword come, and doesn't blow the trumpet, and the people aren't warned, and the sword comes, 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.
  7. So you, son of man, I have set you a watchman to the house of Israel; therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them warning from me.
  8. When I tell the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, and you don't speak to warn the wicked from his way; that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood will I require at your hand.
  9. Nevertheless, if you warn the wicked of his way to turn from it, and he doesn't turn from his way; he shall die in his iniquity, but you have delivered your soul.
  10. You, son of man, tell the house of Israel: Thus you speak, saying, Our transgressions and our sins are on us, and we pine away in them; how then can we live?
  11. Tell them, As I live, says the Lord Yahweh, I have no pleasure in the death of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from his way and live: turn, turn from your evil ways; for why will you die, house of Israel?
  12. You, son of man, tell the children of your people, The righteousness of the righteous shall not deliver him in the day of his disobedience; and as for the wickedness of the wicked, he shall not fall thereby in the day that he turns from his wickedness; neither shall he who is righteous be able to live thereby in the day that he sins.
  13. When I tell the righteous, that he shall surely live; if he trust to his righteousness, and commit iniquity, none of his righteous deeds shall be remembered; but in his iniquity that he has committed, therein shall he die.
  14. Again, when I say to the wicked, You shall surely die; if he turn from his sin, and do that which is lawful and right;
  15. if the wicked restore the pledge, give again that which he had taken by robbery, walk in the statutes of life, committing no iniquity; he shall surely live, he shall not die.
  16. None of his sins that he has committed shall be remembered against him: he has done that which is lawful and right; he shall surely live.
  17. Yet the children of your people say, The way of the Lord is not equal: but as for them, their way is not equal.
  18. When the righteous turns from his righteousness, and commits iniquity, he shall even die therein.
  19. When the wicked turns from his wickedness, and does that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
  20. Yet you say, The way of the Lord is not equal. House of Israel, I will judge every one of you after his ways.
  21. It happened in the twelfth year of our captivity, in the tenth [month], in the fifth [day] of the month, that one who had escaped out of Jerusalem came to me, saying, The city has been struck.
  22. Now the hand of Yahweh had been on me in the evening, before he who was escaped came; and he had opened my mouth, until he came to me in the morning; and my mouth was opened, and I was no more mute.
  23. The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
  24. Son of man, they who inhabit those waste places in 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.
  25. Therefore tell them, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: You eat with the blood, and lift up your eyes to your idols, and shed blood: and shall you possess the land?
  26. You stand on your sword, you work abomination, and every one of you defiles his neighbor's wife: and shall you possess the land?
  27. You shall tell them, Thus says the Lord Yahweh: As I live, surely those who are in the waste places shall fall by the sword; and him who is in the open field will I give to the animals to be devoured; and those who are in the strongholds and in the caves shall die of the pestilence.
  28. I will make the land a desolation and an astonishment; and the pride of her power shall cease; and the mountains of Israel shall be desolate, so that none shall pass through.
  29. Then shall they know that I am Yahweh, when I have made the land a desolation and an astonishment, because of all their abominations which they have committed.
  30. As for you, son of man, the children of your people talk of you by the walls and in the doors of the houses, and speak one to another, everyone to his brother, saying, Please come and hear what is the word that comes forth from Yahweh.
  31. They come to you as the people come, and they sit before you as my people, and they hear your words, but don't do them; for with their mouth they show much love, but their heart goes after their gain.
  32. Behold, you are to them as a very lovely song of one who has a pleasant voice, and can play well on an instrument; for they hear your words, but they don't do them.
  33. When this comes to pass, (behold, it comes), then shall they know that a prophet has been among them.
Ezekiel 33 Text (Hebrew)
  1. ויהי דבר־יהוה אלי לאמר׃
  2. בן־אדם דבר אל־בני־עמך ואמרת אליהם ארץ כי־אביא עליה חרב ולקחו עם־הארץ איש אחד מקציהם ונתנו אתו להם לצפה׃
  3. וראה את־החרב באה על־הארץ ותקע בשופר והזהיר את־העם׃
  4. ושמע השמע את־קול השופר ולא נזהר ותבוא חרב ותקחהו דמו בראשו יהיה׃
  5. את קול השופר שמע ולא נזהר דמו בו יהיה והוא נזהר נפשו מלט׃
  6. והצפה כי־יראה את־החרב באה ולא־תקע בשופר והעם לא־נזהר ותבוא חרב ותקח מהם נפש הוא בעונו נלקח ודמו מיד־הצפה אדרש׃ ס
  7. ואתה בן־אדם צפה נתתיך לבית ישראל ושמעת מפי דבר והזהרת אתם ממני׃
  8. באמרי לרשע רשע מות תמות ולא דברת להזהיר רשע מדרכו הוא רשע בעונו ימות ודמו מידך אבקש׃
  9. ואתה כי־הזהרת רשע מדרכו לשוב ממנה ולא־שב מדרכו הוא בעונו ימות ואתה נפשך הצלת׃ ס
  10. ואתה בן־אדם אמר אל־בית ישראל כן אמרתם לאמר כי־פשעינו וחטאתינו עלינו ובם אנחנו נמקים ואיך נחיה׃
  11. אמר אליהם חי־אני נאם אדני יהוה אם־אחפץ במות הרשע כי אם־בשוב רשע מדרכו וחיה שובו שובו מדרכיכם הרעים ולמה תמותו בית ישראל׃ ף
  12. ואתה בן־אדם אמר אל־בני־עמך צדקת הצדיק לא תצילנו ביום פשעו ורשעת הרשע לא־יכשל בה ביום שובו מרשעו וצדיק לא יוכל לחיות בה ביום חטאתו׃
  13. באמרי לצדיק חיה יחיה והוא־בטח על־צדקתו ועשה עול כל־ לא תזכרנה ובעולו אשר־עשה בו ימות׃
  14. ובאמרי לרשע מות תמות ושב מחטאתו ועשה משפט וצדקה׃
  15. חבל ישיב רשע גזלה ישלם בחקות החיים הלך לבלתי עשות עול חיו יחיה לא ימות׃
  16. כל־ אשר חטא לא תזכרנה לו משפט וצדקה עשה חיו יחיה׃
  17. ואמרו בני עמך לא יתכן דרך אדני והמה דרכם לא־יתכן׃
  18. בשוב־צדיק מצדקתו ועשה עול ומת בהם׃
  19. ובשוב רשע מרשעתו ועשה משפט וצדקה עליהם הוא יחיה׃
  20. ואמרתם לא יתכן דרך אדני איש כדרכיו אשפוט אתכם בית ישראל׃ ף
  21. ויהי בשתי עשרה שנה בעשרי בחמשה לחדש לגלותנו בא־אלי הפליט מירושלם לאמר הכתה העיר׃
  22. ויד־יהוה היתה אלי בערב לפני בוא הפליט ויפתח את־פי עד־בוא אלי בבקר ויפתח פי ולא נאלמתי עוד׃ ף
  23. ויהי דבר־יהוה אלי לאמר׃
  24. בן־אדם ישבי החרבות האלה על־אדמת ישראל אמרים לאמר אחד היה אברהם ויירש את־הארץ ואנחנו רבים לנו נתנה הארץ למורשה׃ ס
  25. לכן אמר אליהם כה־אמר אדני יהוה על־הדם תאכלו ועינכם תשאו אל־גלוליכם ודם תשפכו והארץ תירשו׃
  26. עמדתם על־חרבכם עשיתן תועבה ואיש את־אשת רעהו טמאתם והארץ תירשו׃ ס
  27. כה־תאמר אלהם כה־אמר אדני יהוה חי־אני אם־לא אשר בחרבות בחרב יפלו ואשר על־פני השדה לחיה נתתיו לאכלו ואשר במצדות ובמערות בדבר ימותו׃
  28. ונתתי את־הארץ שממה ומשמה ונשבת גאון עזה ושממו הרי ישראל מאין עובר׃
  29. וידעו כי־אני יהוה בתתי את־הארץ שממה ומשמה על כל־תועבתם אשר עשו׃ ס
  30. ואתה בן־אדם בני עמך הנדברים בך אצל הקירות ובפתחי הבתים ודבר־חד את־אחד איש את־אחיו לאמר באו־נא ושמעו מה הדבר היוצא מאת יהוה׃
  31. ויבואו אליך כמבוא־עם וישבו לפניך עמי ושמעו את־דבריך ואותם לא יעשו כי־עגבים בפיהם המה עשים אחרי בצעם לבם הלך׃
  32. והנך להם כשיר עגבים יפה קול ומטב נגן ושמעו את־דבריך ועשים אינם אותם׃
  33. ובבאה הנה באה וידעו כי נביא היה בתוכם׃ ס

  1. και εγενετο λογος κυριου προς με
  2. υιε ανθρωπου λαλησον τοις υιοις του λαου σου και ερεις προς αυτους γη εφ' ην αν επαγω ρομφαιαν και λαβη ο λαος της γης ανθρωπον ενα εξ αυτων και δωσιν αυτον εαυτοις εις
  3. και ιδη την ρομφαιαν ερχομενην επι την γην και σαλπιση τη σαλπιγγι και σημανη τω
  4. και ακουση ο ακουσας την φωνην της σαλπιγγος και μη φυλαξηται και επελθη η ρομφαια και καταλαβη αυτον το αιμα αυτου επι της κεφαλης αυτου
  5. οτι την φωνην της σαλπιγγος ακουσας ουκ εφυλαξατο το αιμα αυτου επ' αυτου εσται και ουτος οτι εφυλαξατο την ψυχην αυτου
  6. και ο σκοπος εαν ιδη την ρομφαιαν ερχομενην και μη σημανη τη σαλπιγγι και ο λαος μη φυλαξηται και ελθουσα η ρομφαια λαβη εξ αυτων ψυχην αυτη δια την αυτης ανομιαν ελημφθη και το αιμα εκ της χειρος του σκοπου
  7. και συ υιε ανθρωπου σκοπον δεδωκα σε τω οικω ισραηλ και ακουση εκ στοματος μου
  8. εν τω ειπαι με τω αμαρτωλω θανατω θανατωθηση και μη λαλησης του φυλαξασθαι τον ασεβη απο της οδου αυτου αυτος ο ανομος τη ανομια αυτου αποθανειται το δε αιμα αυτου εκ της χειρος σου
  9. συ δε εαν προαπαγγειλης τω ασεβει την οδον αυτου του αποστρεψαι απ' αυτης και μη αποστρεψη απο της οδου αυτου ουτος τη ασεβεια αυτου αποθανειται και συ την ψυχην σαυτου
  10. και συ υιε ανθρωπου ειπον τω οικω ισραηλ ουτως ελαλησατε λεγοντες αι πλαναι ημων και αι ανομιαι ημων εφ' ημιν εισιν και εν αυταις ημεις τηκομεθα και πως
  11. ειπον αυτοις ζω εγω ταδε λεγει κυριος ου βουλομαι τον θανατον του ασεβους ως το αποστρεψαι τον ασεβη απο της οδου αυτου και ζην αυτον αποστροφη αποστρεψατε απο της οδου υμων και ινα τι αποθνησκετε οικος
  12. ειπον προς τους υιους του λαου σου δικαιοσυνη δικαιου ου μη εξεληται αυτον εν η αν ημερα πλανηθη και ανομια ασεβους ου μη κακωση αυτον εν η αν ημερα αποστρεψη απο της ανομιας αυτου και δικαιος ου μη δυνηται
  13. εν τω ειπαι με τω δικαιω ουτος πεποιθεν επι τη δικαιοσυνη αυτου και ποιηση ανομιαν πασαι αι δικαιοσυναι αυτου ου μη αναμνησθωσιν εν τη αδικια αυτου η εποιησεν εν αυτη
  14. και εν τω ειπαι με τω ασεβει θανατω θανατωθηση και αποστρεψη απο της αμαρτιας αυτου και ποιηση κριμα και
  15. και ενεχυρασμα αποδω και αρπαγμα αποτειση εν προσταγμασιν ζωης διαπορευηται του μη ποιησαι αδικον ζωη ζησεται και ου μη
  16. πασαι αι αμαρτιαι αυτου ας ημαρτεν ου μη αναμνησθωσιν οτι κριμα και δικαιοσυνην εποιησεν εν αυτοις
  17. και ερουσιν οι υιοι του λαου σου ουκ ευθεια η οδος του κυριου και αυτη η οδος αυτων ουκ
  18. εν τω αποστρεψαι δικαιον απο της δικαιοσυνης αυτου και ποιηση ανομιας και αποθανειται εν
  19. και εν τω αποστρεψαι τον αμαρτωλον απο της ανομιας αυτου και ποιηση κριμα και δικαιοσυνην εν αυτοις αυτος
  20. και τουτο εστιν ο ειπατε ουκ ευθεια η οδος κυριου εκαστον εν ταις οδοις αυτου κρινω υμας οικος
  21. και εγενηθη εν τω δωδεκατω ετει εν τω δωδεκατω μηνι πεμπτη του μηνος της αιχμαλωσιας ημων ηλθεν ο ανασωθεις προς με απο ιερουσαλημ λεγων εαλω η
  22. και εγενηθη επ' εμε χειρ κυριου εσπερας πριν ελθειν αυτον και ηνοιξεν μου το στομα εως ηλθεν προς με το πρωι και ανοιχθεν μου το στομα ου συνεσχεθη
  23. και εγενηθη λογος κυριου προς με
  24. υιε ανθρωπου οι κατοικουντες τας ηρημωμενας επι της γης του ισραηλ λεγουσιν εις ην αβρααμ και κατεσχεν την γην και ημεις πλειους εσμεν ημιν δεδοται η γη εις
  25. δια τουτο ειπον αυτοις ταδε λεγει κυριος
  26. Greek:Ezekiel 33:26
  27. ζω εγω ει μην οι εν ταις ηρημωμεναις μαχαιρα πεσουνται και οι επι προσωπου του πεδιου τοις θηριοις του αγρου δοθησονται εις καταβρωμα και τους εν ταις τετειχισμεναις και τους εν τοις σπηλαιοις θανατω
  28. και δωσω την γην ερημον και απολειται η υβρις της ισχυος αυτης και ερημωθησεται τα ορη του ισραηλ δια το μη ειναι
  29. και γνωσονται οτι εγω ειμι κυριος και ποιησω την γην αυτων ερημον και ερημωθησεται δια παντα τα βδελυγματα αυτων α
  30. και συ υιε ανθρωπου οι υιοι του λαου σου οι λαλουντες περι σου παρα τα τειχη και εν τοις πυλωσι των οικιων και λαλουσιν ανθρωπος τω αδελφω αυτου λεγοντες συνελθωμεν και ακουσωμεν τα εκπορευομενα παρα
  31. ερχονται προς σε ως συμπορευεται λαος και καθηνται εναντιον σου και ακουουσιν τα ρηματα σου και αυτα ου μη ποιησουσιν οτι ψευδος εν τω στοματι αυτων και οπισω των μιασματων η καρδια
  32. και γινη αυτοις ως φωνη ψαλτηριου ηδυφωνου ευαρμοστου και ακουσονται σου τα ρηματα και ου μη ποιησουσιν
  33. και ηνικα αν ελθη ερουσιν ιδου ηκει και γνωσονται οτι προφητης ην εν μεσω
Ezekiel 33 Text (Latin)
  1. Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
  2. Fili hominis, loquere ad filios populi tui, et dices ad eos : Terra, cum induxero super eam gladium, et tulerit populus terræ virum unum de novissimis suis, et constituerit eum super se speculatorem :
  3. et ille viderit gladium venientem super terram, et cecinerit buccina, et annuntiaverit populo :
  4. audiens autem, quisquis ille est, sonitum buccinæ, et non se observaverit, veneritque gladius, et tulerit eum, sanguis ipsius super caput ejus erit.
  5. Sonum buccinæ audivit, et non se observavit : sanguis ejus in ipso erit ; si autem se custodierit, animam suam salvabit.
  6. Quod si speculator viderit gladium venientem, et non insonuerit buccina, et populus se non custodierit, veneritque gladius, et tulerit de eis animam : ille quidem in iniquitate sua captus est, sanguinem autem ejus de manu speculatoris requiram.
  7. Et tu, fili hominis, speculatorem dedi te domui Israël : audiens ergo ex ore meo sermonem, annuntiabis eis ex me.
  8. Si me dicente ad impium : Impie, morte morieris : non fueris locutus ut se custodiat impius a via sua, ipse impius in iniquitate sua morietur, sanguinem autem ejus de manu tua requiram.
  9. Si autem annuntiante te ad impium ut a viis suis convertatur, non fuerit conversus a via sua, ipse in iniquitate sua morietur, porro tu animam tuam liberasti.
  10. Tu ergo, fili hominis, dic ad domum Israël : Sic locuti estis, dicentes : Iniquitates nostræ et peccata nostra super nos sunt, et in ipsis nos tabescimus : quomodo ergo vivere poterimus ?
  11. Dic ad eos : Vivo ego, dicit Dominus Deus, nolo mortem impii, sed ut convertatur impius a via sua, et vivat. Convertimini, convertimini a viis vestris pessimis : et quare moriemini, domus Israël ?
  12. Tu itaque, fili hominis, dic ad filios populi tui : Justitia justi non liberabit eum, in quacumque die peccaverit : et impietas impii non nocebit ei, in quacumque die conversus fuerit ab impietate sua : et justus non poterit vivere in justitia sua, in quacumque die peccaverit.
  13. Etiamsi dixero justo quod vita vivat, et confisus in justitia sua fecerit iniquitatem, omnes justitiæ ejus oblivioni tradentur, et in iniquitate sua quam operatus est, in ipsa morietur.
  14. Si autem dixero impio : Morte morieris : et egerit pœnitentiam a peccato suo, feceritque judicium et justitiam,
  15. et pignus restituerit ille impius, rapinamque reddiderit, in mandatis vitæ ambulaverit, nec fecerit quidquam injustum, vita vivet, et non morietur.
  16. Omnia peccata ejus, quæ peccavit, non imputabuntur ei : judicium et justitiam fecit : vita vivet.
  17. Et dixerunt filii populi tui : Non est æqui ponderis via Domini : et ipsorum via injusta est.
  18. Cum enim recesserit justus a justitia sua, feceritque iniquitates, morietur in eis.
  19. Et cum recesserit impius ab impietate sua, feceritque judicium et justitiam, vivet in eis.
  20. Et dicitis : Non est recta via Domini. Unumquemque juxta vias suas judicabo de vobis, domus Israël.
  21. Et factum est in duodecimo anno, in decimo mense, in quinta mensis transmigrationis nostræ, venit ad me qui fugerat de Jerusalem, dicens : Vastata est civitas.
  22. Manus autem Domini facta fuerat ad me vespere, antequam veniret qui fugerat : aperuitque os meum donec veniret ad me mane : et aperto ore meo, non silui amplius.
  23. Et factum est verbum Domini ad me, dicens :
  24. Fili hominis, qui habitant in ruinosis his super humum Israël, loquentes aiunt : Unus erat Abraham, et hæreditate possedit terram : nos autem multi sumus : nobis data est terra in possessionem.
  25. Idcirco dices ad eos : Hæc dicit Dominus Deus : Qui in sanguine comeditis, et oculos vestros levatis ad immunditias vestras, et sanguinem funditis, numquid terram hæreditate possidebitis ?
  26. stetistis in gladiis vestris, fecistis abominationes, et unusquisque uxorem proximi sui polluit : et terram hæreditate possidebitis ?
  27. Hæc dices ad eos : Sic dicit Dominus Deus : Vivo ego, quia qui in ruinosis habitant, gladio cadent : et qui in agro est, bestiis tradetur ad devorandum : qui autem in præsidiis et speluncis sunt, peste morientur.
  28. Et dabo terram in solitudinem et in desertum, et deficiet superba fortitudo ejus : et desolabuntur montes Israël, eo quod nullus sit qui per eos transeat :
  29. et scient quia ego Dominus, cum dedero terram eorum desolatam et desertam, propter universas abominationes suas, quas operati sunt.
  30. Et tu, fili hominis, filii populi tui, qui loquuntur de te juxta muros et in ostiis domorum, et dicunt unus ad alterum, vir ad proximum suum, loquentes : Venite, et audiamus quis sit sermo egrediens a Domino.
  31. Et veniunt ad te, quasi si ingrediatur populus, et sedent coram te populus meus : et audiunt sermones tuos, et non faciunt eos, quia in canticum oris sui vertunt illos, et avaritiam suam sequitur cor eorum.
  32. Et es eis quasi carmen musicum, quod suavi dulcique sono canitur : et audiunt verba tua, et non faciunt ea.
  33. Et cum venerit quod prædictum est (ecce enim venit), tunc scient quod prophetes fuerit inter eos.
Ezekiel 33 Text (KJV)
  1. Again the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  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 watchman:
  3. If when he seeth the sword come upon the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the people;
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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?
  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?
  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.
  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.
  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;
  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.
  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.
  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.
  18. When the righteous turneth from his righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he shall even die thereby.
  19. But if the wicked turn from his wickedness, and do that which is lawful and right, he shall live thereby.
  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.
  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 smitten.
  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 more dumb.
  23. Then the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
  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.
  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?
  26. Ye stand upon your sword, ye work abomination, and ye defile every one his neighbour's wife: and shall ye possess the land?
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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.
  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. And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it will come,) then shall they know that a prophet hath been among them.
