Ezekiel 22
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 2“But you, son of man, judge the city of blood, and I shall make known all her uncleanness 3And say, ‘Thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: the time of the city where blood has been shed has arrived, and she has made idols within her, and she is defiled 4By the blood which you shed you are condemned, and by the idols that you have made you have been defiled. Your days have come and the time of your years has arrived; because of this I have given you as a reproach to the nations and a mockery to all cities 5Those that are distant from you and those who are near to you mock at you, and they shall tell the abomination of her name and the greatness of her evil

6Behold, the Princes of Israel, each man in his family, were in you that they would shed blood 7They have cursed father and mother among you, and him who is converted to me they have rejected within you, and the orphans and the widows they defrauded among you 8And my holy things you have despised, and my Sabbaths you have profaned 9And men merchants were among you that they would shed blood, and they ate upon the mountains among you and they did sin within you 10And they exposed among you the nakedness of the fathers, and they have produced the impurity of a menstruous woman within you 11And they have defiled, each man, the wife of his neighbor, and they have defiled, each man, his daughter in law with prostitution, and they despised among you, each man, his sister the daughter of his father 12And they have taken bribes among you, that they would shed blood, and they have taken interest among you, and they took too much from you, and they betrayed their friends in oppression, and they have forgotten me, says THE LORD OF LORDS

13Also I struck my hand against my hand over the evil that you have done, and over the blood that has been shed within you 14Your heart will not endure and your hands will not hold fast for the days that I will make. I, LORD JEHOVAH, have spoken, and I have done it 15And I shall scatter you among the Gentiles and I shall scatter you among the cities 16And I shall admonish you before the eyes of the nations, and you shall know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH”

17And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 18“Son of man, they of the house of Israel have been rejected by me, all of them, like brass and like tin and like iron and like lead within a furnace, which are mixed with silver 19Because thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: because all of you are mixed, behold, I gather you within Jerusalem 20As silver and brass and iron and tin and lead are collected within a furnace, and they blow fire on them that they would be melted, thus I shall gather you in my passion and in my anger I shall melt you 21And I shall blow upon you the fire of my passion and I shall melt you within it 22As silver is melted within a furnace, thus you shall be melted within it, and you shall know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH. I have poured my wrath upon you”

23And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 24“Son of man, say to her: ‘You, the land, are not clean, and you are not acceptable and rain did not come down upon you 25Her Prophets have rebelled within her as a lion that roars, and he rips the prey. They consumed souls by their strength and they took precious things from their palaces 26Her Priests have done evil against my law and they have defiled my holiness, and between holiness and the unclean they have not distinguished, and they have not discerned between the defiled and the pure, and they have lowered their eyes from my Sabbaths, and I am defiled among them 27Her Princes do violence within her like wolves to shed blood and to destroy souls that they would possess property 28And her Prophets beat her with a beating that she would fall. They have seen emptiness for themselves and divined falsehood for themselves, and they were saying, “Thus says LORD JEHOVAH”, and LORD JEHOVAH has not spoken 29They have defrauded and they have oppressed the people of the land, and have wronged the poor and the afflicted, and those who converted to me they oppressed without justice 30And I searched among them for a man who would build a fence and stand in the gap before me for the sake of the land, that I would not destroy it, and I did not find him 31And I poured upon them my anger, and in the fire of my anger I destroyed them. I have paid their ways on their heads, says THE LORD OF LORDS
