Chapter 22. Moreover the word of the Lord came to me Saying Now son of man will you judge will you Judge the bloody City Yes show her all her Abominations Then say thus says the Lord God The city sheds blood in her own midst That her time May Come And she makes Idols within herself to Defile herself You have become Guilty by the blood Which you have shed and have defiled Yourself with the idols which you have Made You have caused your days to draw near And have come to the end of your years Therefore I have made you a reproach to The Nations and a mockery to all Countries Those near and those far from you will Mock you as Infamous and full of tumult Look The princes of Israel Each one has used his power to shed Blood in you In you they have made light of father And mother In your midst they have oppressed The Stranger In you they have mistreated the Fatherless and the Widow You have despised my holy things and Profaned my sabbaths

In you are men who slander to cause Bloodshed In you are those who eat on the Mountains In your midst they commit lewdness In you men uncover their father's Nakedness In you they violate women who are set Apart during their impurity One commits Abomination with his Neighbor's wife Another lewdly defiles his Daughter-in-law and another in you Violates his sister his father's Daughter In you they take bribes to shed blood You take usury and increase You have made profit from your neighbors By extortion and have forgotten me Says the Lord God Behold therefore I beat my fists at the Dishonest Prophet which you have made And at the Bloodshed which has been in Your midst Can your heart endure or can your hands Remain strong in the days when I shall Deal with you I the Lord have spoken and will do it I will scatter you among the Nations Disperse you throughout the countries And remove your filthiness completely From you You shall defile yourself in the sight Of the Nations

Then you shall know that I am the Lord The word of the Lord came to me saying Son of man The house of Israel has become dross to Me They are all bronze tin iron and lead in The midst of a furnace They have become dross from Silver Therefore thus says the Lord God Because you have all become dros Therefore behold I will gather you into the midst of Jerusalem As men gather silver bronze iron lead And Tin into the midst of a furnace to Blow fire on it to melt it So I will gather you in my anger and in My Fury And I will leave you there and melt you Yes I will gather you and blow on you with The fire of my wrath And you shall be melted in its midst As silver is melted in the midst of a Furnace so shall you be melted in its Midst Then you shall know that I the Lord have Poured out my fury on you And the word of the Lord came to me Saying son of man say to her You are a land that is not cleansed or Rained on in the day of indignation The conspiracy of her prophets in her Midst is like a roaring lion tearing the

Prey They have devoured people They have taken treasure and precious Things They have made many widows in her midst Her priests have violated my law and Profaned my holy things They have not distinguished between the Holy and Unholy nor have they made known The difference between the unclean and The clean And they have hidden their eyes from my Sabbaths so that I am profaned among Them Her princes in her midst are like wolves Tearing the prey to shed blood to Destroy people and to get dishonest gain Her prophets plastered them with Untempered mortar seeing false visions And divining lies for them saying thus Says the Lord God When the Lord had not spoken The people of the land have used Oppressions committed robbery and Mistreated the poor and needy and they Wrongfully oppressed The Stranger So I sought for a man among them who Would make a wall and stand in the gap Before me on behalf of the land that I Should not destroy it But I found no one Therefore I have poured out my Indignation on them I have consumed them with the fire of my

Wrath And I have recompensed their deeds on Their own heads Says the Lord God
