Ezekiel 24
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And the answer of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me in the ninth year, in the tenth day of the tenth month, saying: 2“Son of man, write for yourself the name of this day, this day in which the King of Babel beat upon Jerusalem

3And tell a parable about the rebellious house, and say to them: ‘Thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: cook a pot, and pour water into it

4And cast into it pieces that are good and fat, the shoulder of the choicest of sheep that has its bone taken out

5Set ablaze the bones under the pot and burn them under it

6For thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: “Woe, city of blood, for a caldron is cooking in her, and her evil did not go out from her! Cut a limb from her, and do not let a portion of it fall

7Because her blood was within her, and I put it upon the stone and I did not pour it on the ground, that it would not be hidden in the dust

8That the anger may go up to vengeance, I have given her blood on a smooth rock that it will not be concealed

9Because of this, thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: “Woe, city of blood! I shall enlarge the dwelling

10And I shall multiply wood and I shall kindle a fire and it shall cook flesh, and I shall heat up intense heat and the bones shall burn up

11And I set the heat on the coals to scorch and its brass shall be melted, and its uncleanness shall be consumed within, and her punishment shall end

12As rotten figs and the abundance of her evil will not come forth from her, but her reward shall be in fire

13Because you were defiled with prostitution and because I cleansed you and you were not purified from your abominations; you shall not be cleansed again until my wrath shall rest on you

14I, LORD JEHOVAH, have spoken, and I summon and I make, and I shall not pity and I shall not spare, and I shall not show mercy, and according to your ways and according to your actions I shall judge you, says THE LORD OF LORDS

15And the word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me, saying: 16“Son of man, behold, I have taken from you the lust of your eyes by a blow that comes suddenly, and you shall not mourn, neither shall you weep, neither shed your tears 17Howl! Be pained at the blood of the dead, and you shall not make a house of weeping, and your garment gird upon you, and your shoes put on your feet, and you shall not cover over your lips, and the bread of the children of men you shall not eat” 18And I spoke in the morning to the people, and my wife died in the evening, and at the break of the next day I did as I was commanded 19And the people said to me: “Are you not telling us what this is that you did?” 20And I said to them: “This word of LORD JEHOVAH was upon me saying 21‘Say to the house of Israel: thus says THE LORD OF LORDS: behold, I pollute my holy place, the glory of your strength and the lust of your eyes, and the Mercy Seat of your souls, and your sons and your daughters whom you leave shall fall by the sword 22And you shall do as I have done, and you shall cover your lips, and the bread of the children of men you shall not eat 23And your hair shall not be cut, and your shoes shall be on your feet, and you shall not weep, and you shall not mourn, and you shall waste away in your evil and you shall be comforted, each man, about his brother 24And Ezekiel shall be a sign to you, and as he did, so you shall do, and you shall know that I AM THE LORD OF LORDS

25But you, son of man, in the day that I take from them the strength of the joy of their glory, and the lust of their eyes, and the Mercy Seat of their souls, and their sons, and their daughters 26In that day a fugitive shall come to you and shall make you hear with your ears 27And a fugitive will open your mouth in that day and you shall speak, and again you shall not be dumb, and you shall be a sign to them, and they shall know that I AM LORD JEHOVAH
