You will be 1 an object of scorn and taunting, 2 a prime example of destruction 3 among the nations around you when I execute judgments against you in anger and raging fury. 4 I, the Lord, have spoken!
Then you will know that I am the Lord, when I deal with you for the sake of my reputation and not according to your wicked conduct and corrupt deeds, O house of Israel, declares the sovereign Lord.’”
Say, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says: “‘Look, I am against you, 1 Sidon, and I will magnify myself in your midst. Then they will know that I am the Lord when I execute judgments on her and reveal my sovereign power 2 in her.
They will live securely in it; they will build houses and plant vineyards. They will live securely 1 when I execute my judgments on all those who scorn them and surround them. Then they will know that I am the Lord their God.’”
