23:46 “For this is what the sovereign Lord says: Bring up an army 2 against them and subject them 3 to terror and plunder. 23:47 That army will pelt them with stones and slash them with their swords; they will kill their sons and daughters and burn their houses. 4 23:48 I will put an end to the obscene conduct in the land; all the women will learn a lesson from this and not engage in obscene conduct. 23:49 They will repay you for your obscene conduct, and you will be punished for idol worship. 5 Then you will know that I am the sovereign Lord.”
