Ezekiel 36:17-20

Context
36:17 “Son of man, when the house of Israel was living on their own land, they defiled it by their behavior 1  and their deeds. In my sight their behavior was like the uncleanness of a woman having her monthly period. 36:18 So I poured my anger on them 2  because of the blood they shed on the land and because of the idols with which they defiled it. 3  36:19 I scattered them among the nations; they were dispersed throughout foreign countries. In accordance with their behavior and their deeds I judged them. 36:20 But when they arrived in the nations where they went, they profaned my holy name. It was said of them, ‘These are the people of the Lord, yet they have departed from his land.’
