The Book of Ezekiel Chapter 9 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 9. Then he called out in my hearing with a Loud voice saying Let those who have charge over the city Draw near each with a deadly weapon in His hand And suddenly six men came from the Direction of the upper gate which faces North each with his battle ax in his Hand One man among them was clothed with Linen and had a writer's ink horn at his Side They went in and Stood Beside the bronze Altar Now the glory of the god of Israel had Gone up from the Cherub where it had Been to the threshold of the Temple And he called to the man clothed with Linen who had the writer's inkhorn at His side And the Lord said to him Go through the midst of the city Through the midst of Jerusalem and put a Mark on the four heads of The Men Who Sigh and cry over all the Abominations That are done within it To the others he said in my hearing Go after him through the city and kill Do not let your eyes spare nor have any Pity Utterly slay Olden young men Maidens and little children and women But do not come near anyone on whom is

The mark And begin at My Sanctuary So they began with the elders who were Before the temple Then he said to them Defile the temple and fill the courts With the slain go out And they went out and killed in the city So it was that while they were killing Them I was left alone And I fell on my face and cried out and Said Ah Lord God Will you destroy all the remnant of Israel in pouring out your fury on Jerusalem Then he said to me The iniquity of the House of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great And the land is full of Bloodshed and The City full of perversity For they say the Lord has forsaken the Land and the Lord does not see And as for me also my eye will neither Spare nor will I have pity But I will recompense their deeds on Their own head Just then The man clothed with linen who had the Ink horn at his side Reported back and said I have done as you commanded me
