“And you, son of man, prophesy, and clap your hands together. Let the sword strike twice, even three times! It is a sword for slaughter, a sword for the great slaughter surrounding them.
Twist and strain, 1 Daughter Zion, as if you were in labor! For you will leave the city and live in the open field. You will go to Babylon, but there you will be rescued. There the Lord will deliver 2 you from the power 3 of your enemies.
Indeed, I am about to raise up a shepherd in the land who will not take heed to the sheep headed to slaughter, will not seek the scattered, and will not heal the injured. 1 Moreover, he will not nourish the one that is healthy but instead will eat the meat of the fat sheep 2 and tear off their hooves.
let it be known to all of you and to all the people of Israel that by the name of Jesus Christ 1 the Nazarene whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, this man stands before you healthy.
For by the grace given to me I say to every one of you not to think more highly of yourself than you ought to think, but to think with sober discernment, as God has distributed to each of you 1 a measure of faith. 2
