Ezekiel 20:1-44

And it came to pass in the seventh
<07637>
year
<08141>_,
in the fifth
<02549>
[month], the tenth
<06218>
[day] of the month
<02320>_,
[that] certain
<0582>
of the elders
<02205>
of Israel
<03478>
came
<0935> (8804)
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of the LORD
<03068>_,
and sat
<03427> (8799)
before
<06440>
me.
Then came the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
unto me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
speak
<01696> (8761)
unto the elders
<02205>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Are ye come
<0935> (8802)
to enquire
<01875> (8800)
of me? [As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
I will not be enquired
<01875> (8735)
of by you.
Wilt thou judge
<08199> (8799)
them, son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
wilt thou judge
<08199> (8799)
[them]? cause them to know
<03045> (8685)
the abominations
<08441>
of their fathers
<01>_:
{Wilt...: or, Wilt thou plead for them}
And say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
In the day
<03117>
when I chose
<0977> (8800)
Israel
<03478>_,
and lifted up
<05375> (8799)
mine hand
<03027>
unto the seed
<02233>
of the house
<01004>
of Jacob
<03290>_,
and made myself known
<03045> (8735)
unto them in the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
when I lifted
<05375> (8799)
up mine hand
<03027>
unto them, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
I [am] the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_;
{lifted...: or, sware}
In the day
<03117>
[that] I lifted up
<05375> (8804)
mine hand
<03027>
unto them, to bring them forth
<03318> (8687)
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>
into a land
<0776>
that I had espied
<08446> (8804)
for them, flowing
<02100> (8802)
with milk
<02461>
and honey
<01706>_,
which [is] the glory
<06643>
of all lands
<0776>_:
Then said
<0559> (8799)
I unto them, Cast ye away
<07993> (8685)
every man
<0376>
the abominations
<08251>
of his eyes
<05869>_,
and defile
<02930> (8691)
not yourselves with the idols
<01544>
of Egypt
<04714>_:
I [am] the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_.
But they rebelled
<04784> (8686)
against me, and would
<014> (8804)
not hearken
<08085> (8800)
unto me: they did not every man
<0376>
cast away
<07993> (8689)
the abominations
<08251>
of their eyes
<05869>_,
neither did they forsake
<05800> (8804)
the idols
<01544>
of Egypt
<04714>_:
then I said
<0559> (8799)_,
I will pour out
<08210> (8800)
my fury
<02534>
upon them, to accomplish
<03615> (8763)
my anger
<0639>
against them in the midst
<08432>
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
But I wrought
<06213> (8799)
for my name's
<08034>
sake, that it should not be polluted
<02490> (8736)
before
<05869>
the heathen
<01471>_,
among
<08432>
whom they [were], in whose sight
<05869>
I made myself known
<03045> (8738)
unto them, in bringing them forth
<03318> (8687)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_.
Wherefore I caused them to go forth
<03318> (8686)
out of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
and brought
<0935> (8686)
them into the wilderness
<04057>_.
And I gave
<05414> (8799)
them my statutes
<02708>_,
and shewed
<03045> (8689)
them my judgments
<04941>_,
which [if] a man
<0120>
do
<06213> (8799)_,
he shall even live
<02425> (8804)
in them. {shewed...: Heb. made them to know}
Moreover also I gave
<05414> (8804)
them my sabbaths
<07676>_,
to be a sign
<0226>
between me and them, that they might know
<03045> (8800)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>
that sanctify
<06942> (8764)
them.
But the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>
rebelled
<04784> (8686)
against me in the wilderness
<04057>_:
they walked
<01980> (8804)
not in my statutes
<02708>_,
and they despised
<03988> (8804)
my judgments
<04941>_,
which [if] a man
<0120>
do
<06213> (8799)_,
he shall even live
<02425> (8804)
in them; and my sabbaths
<07676>
they greatly
<03966>
polluted
<02490> (8765)_:
then I said
<0559> (8799)_,
I would pour out
<08210> (8800)
my fury
<02534>
upon them in the wilderness
<04057>_,
to consume
<03615> (8763)
them.
But I wrought
<06213> (8799)
for my name's
<08034>
sake, that it should not be polluted
<02490> (8736)
before
<05869>
the heathen
<01471>_,
in whose sight
<05869>
I brought them out
<03318> (8689)_.
Yet also I lifted up
<05375> (8804)
my hand
<03027>
unto them in the wilderness
<04057>_,
that I would not bring
<0935> (8687)
them into the land
<0776>
which I had given
<05414> (8804)
[them], flowing
<02100> (8802)
with milk
<02461>
and honey
<01706>_,
which [is] the glory
<06643>
of all lands
<0776>_;
Because they despised
<03988> (8804)
my judgments
<04941>_,
and walked
<01980> (8804)
not in my statutes
<02708>_,
but polluted
<02490> (8765)
my sabbaths
<07676>_:
for their heart
<03820>
went
<01980> (8802)
after
<0310>
their idols
<01544>_.
Nevertheless mine eye
<05869>
spared
<02347> (8799)
them from destroying
<07843> (8763)
them, neither did I make
<06213> (8804)
an end
<03617>
of them in the wilderness
<04057>_.
But I said
<0559> (8799)
unto their children
<01121>
in the wilderness
<04057>_,
Walk
<03212> (8799)
ye not in the statutes
<02706>
of your fathers
<01>_,
neither observe
<08104> (8799)
their judgments
<04941>_,
nor defile
<02930> (8691)
yourselves with their idols
<01544>_:
I [am] the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_;
walk
<03212> (8798)
in my statutes
<02708>_,
and keep
<08104> (8798)
my judgments
<04941>_,
and do
<06213> (8798)
them;
And hallow
<06942> (8761)
my sabbaths
<07676>_;
and they shall be a sign
<0226>
between me and you, that ye may know
<03045> (8800)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>
your God
<0430>_.
Notwithstanding the children
<01121>
rebelled
<04784> (8686)
against me: they walked
<01980> (8804)
not in my statutes
<02708>_,
neither kept
<08104> (8804)
my judgments
<04941>
to do
<06213> (8800)
them, which [if] a man
<0120>
do
<06213> (8799)_,
he shall even live
<02425> (8804)
in them; they polluted
<02490> (8765)
my sabbaths
<07676>_:
then I said
<0559> (8799)_,
I would pour out
<08210> (8800)
my fury
<02534>
upon them, to accomplish
<03615> (8763)
my anger
<0639>
against them in the wilderness
<04057>_.
Nevertheless I withdrew
<07725> (8689)
mine hand
<03027>_,
and wrought
<06213> (8799)
for my name's
<08034>
sake, that it should not be polluted
<02490> (8736)
in the sight
<05869>
of the heathen
<01471>_,
in whose sight
<05869>
I brought them forth
<03318> (8689)_.
I lifted up
<05375> (8804)
mine hand
<03027>
unto them also in the wilderness
<04057>_,
that I would scatter
<06327> (8687)
them among the heathen
<01471>_,
and disperse
<02219> (8763)
them through the countries
<0776>_;
Because they had not executed
<06213> (8804)
my judgments
<04941>_,
but had despised
<03988> (8804)
my statutes
<02708>_,
and had polluted
<02490> (8765)
my sabbaths
<07676>_,
and their eyes
<05869>
were after
<0310>
their fathers
<01>_'
idols
<01544>_.
Wherefore I gave
<05414> (8804)
them also statutes
<02706>
[that were] not good
<02896>_,
and judgments
<04941>
whereby they should not live
<02421> (8799)_;
And I polluted
<02930> (8762)
them in their own gifts
<04979>_,
in that they caused to pass through
<05674> (8687)
[the fire] all that openeth
<06363>
the womb
<07356>_,
that I might make them desolate
<08074> (8686)_,
to the end that they might know
<03045> (8799)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_.
Therefore, son
<01121>
of man
<0120>_,
speak
<01696> (8761)
unto the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
and say
<0559> (8804)
unto them, Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Yet in this your fathers
<01>
have blasphemed
<01442> (8765)
me, in that they have committed
<04603> (8800)
a trespass
<04604>
against me. {committed...: Heb. trespassed a trespass}
[For] when I had brought
<0935> (8686)
them into the land
<0776>_,
[for] the which I lifted up
<05375> (8804)
mine hand
<03027>
to give
<05414> (8800)
it to them, then they saw
<07200> (8799)
every high
<07311> (8802)
hill
<01389>_,
and all the thick
<05687>
trees
<06086>_,
and they offered
<02076> (8799)
there their sacrifices
<02077>_,
and there they presented
<05414> (8799)
the provocation
<03708>
of their offering
<07133>_:
there also they made
<07760> (8799)
their sweet
<05207>
savour
<07381>_,
and poured out
<05258> (8686)
there their drink offerings
<05262>_.
Then I said
<0559> (8799)
unto them, What [is] the high place
<01116>
whereunto ye go
<0935> (8802)_?
And the name
<08034>
thereof is called
<07121> (8735)
Bamah
<01117>
unto this day
<03117>_.
{I said...: or, I told them what the high place was, or, Bamah}
Wherefore say
<0559> (8798)
unto the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Are ye polluted
<02930> (8737)
after the manner
<01870>
of your fathers
<01>_?
and commit ye whoredom
<02181> (8802)
after
<0310>
their abominations
<08251>_?
For when ye offer
<05375> (8800)
your gifts
<04979>_,
when ye make your sons
<01121>
to pass through
<05674> (8687)
the fire
<0784>_,
ye pollute
<02930> (8737)
yourselves with all your idols
<01544>_,
even unto this day
<03117>_:
and shall I be enquired
<01875> (8735)
of by you, O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_?
[As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
I will not be enquired
<01875> (8735)
of by you.
And that which cometh
<05927> (8802)
into your mind
<07307>
shall not be at all, that ye say
<0559> (8802)_,
We will be
<01961> (8799)
as the heathen
<01471>_,
as the families
<04940>
of the countries
<0776>_,
to serve
<08334> (8763)
wood
<06086>
and stone
<068>_.
[As] I live
<02416>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
surely with a mighty
<02389>
hand
<03027>_,
and with a stretched out
<05186> (8803)
arm
<02220>_,
and with fury
<02534>
poured out
<08210> (8803)_,
will I rule
<04427> (8799)
over you:
And I will bring you out
<03318> (8689)
from the people
<05971>_,
and will gather
<06908> (8765)
you out of the countries
<0776>
wherein ye are scattered
<06327> (8738)_,
with a mighty
<02389>
hand
<03027>_,
and with a stretched out
<05186> (8803)
arm
<02220>_,
and with fury
<02534>
poured out
<08210> (8803)_.
And I will bring
<0935> (8689)
you into the wilderness
<04057>
of the people
<05971>_,
and there will I plead
<08199> (8738)
with you face
<06440>
to face
<06440>_.
Like as I pleaded
<08199> (8738)
with your fathers
<01>
in the wilderness
<04057>
of the land
<0776>
of Egypt
<04714>_,
so will I plead
<08199> (8735)
with you, saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
And I will cause you to pass
<05674> (8689)
under the rod
<07626>_,
and I will bring
<0935> (8689)
you into the bond
<04562>
of the covenant
<01285>_:
{bond: or, delivering}
And I will purge out
<01305> (8804)
from among you the rebels
<04775> (8802)_,
and them that transgress
<06586> (8802)
against me: I will bring them forth
<03318> (8686)
out of the country
<0776>
where they sojourn
<04033>_,
and they shall not enter
<0935> (8799)
into the land
<0127>
of Israel
<03478>_:
and ye shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_.
As for you, O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_;
Go
<03212> (8798)
ye, serve
<05647> (8798)
ye every one
<0376>
his idols
<01544>_,
and hereafter
<0310>
[also], if ye will not hearken
<08085> (8802)
unto me: but pollute
<02490> (8762)
ye my holy
<06944>
name
<08034>
no more with your gifts
<04979>_,
and with your idols
<01544>_.
For in mine holy
<06944>
mountain
<02022>_,
in the mountain
<02022>
of the height
<04791>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_,
there shall all the house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
all of them in the land
<0776>_,
serve
<05647> (8799)
me: there will I accept
<07521> (8799)
them, and there will I require
<01875> (8799)
your offerings
<08641>_,
and the firstfruits
<07225>
of your oblations
<04864>_,
with all your holy things
<06944>_.
{firstfruits: or, chief}
I will accept
<07521> (8799)
you with your sweet
<05207>
savour
<07381>_,
when I bring you out
<03318> (8687)
from the people
<05971>_,
and gather
<06908> (8765)
you out of the countries
<0776>
wherein ye have been scattered
<06327> (8738)_;
and I will be sanctified
<06942> (8738)
in you before
<05869>
the heathen
<01471>_.
{sweet...: Heb. savour of rest}
And ye shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
when I shall bring
<0935> (8687)
you into the land
<0127>
of Israel
<03478>_,
into the country
<0776>
[for] the which I lifted up
<05375> (8804)
mine hand
<03027>
to give
<05414> (8800)
it to your fathers
<01>_.
And there shall ye remember
<02142> (8804)
your ways
<01870>_,
and all your doings
<05949>_,
wherein ye have been defiled
<02930> (8738)_;
and ye shall lothe
<06962> (8738)
yourselves in your own sight
<06440>
for all your evils
<07451>
that ye have committed
<06213> (8804)_.
And ye shall know
<03045> (8804)
that I [am] the LORD
<03068>_,
when I have wrought
<06213> (8800)
with you for my name's
<08034>
sake, not according to your wicked
<07451>
ways
<01870>_,
nor according to your corrupt
<07843> (8737)
doings
<05949>_,
O ye house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
saith
<05002> (8803)
the Lord
<0136>
GOD
<03069>_.
