Ezekiel 20:11-13

20:11 I gave them my statutes 1  and revealed my regulations to them. The one 2  who carries 3  them out will live by them! 4  20:12 I also gave them my Sabbaths 5  as a reminder of our relationship, 6  so that they would know that I, the Lord, sanctify them. 7  20:13 But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness; they did not follow my statutes and they rejected my regulations (the one who obeys them will live by them), and they utterly desecrated my Sabbaths. So I decided to pour out 8  my rage on them in the wilderness and destroy them. 9
