Ezekiel 21
NMV
21
1And the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto me, saying,
2Son of man, set youri face toward Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], and drop [youi word] toward the holy places, and prophesy against the land of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God],
3And say to the and of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], Thus says the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate); Behold, I [am] against youi, and will draw forth my sword out of his sheath, and will cut off from youi the righteous and the wicked.
4Seeing then that I will cut off from youi the righteous and the wicked, therefore shall my sword go forth out of his sheath against all flesh from the south to the north:
5That all flesh may know that I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) have drawn forth my sword out of his sheath: it shall not return any more.
6Sigh therefore, youi Son of man, with the breaking of [youri] waist; and with bitterness sigh before their eyes.
7And it shall be, when they say unto youi, For what reason sigh youi? that youi shall answer, For the tidings; because it comes: and every heart shall melt, and all hands shall be feeble, and every spirit shall faint, and all knees shall be weak [as] water: behold, it comes, and shall be brought to pass, says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER).
8Again the word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto me, saying,
9Son of man, prophesy, and say, Thus says the Lord-Adonai (The Father) [Greatest Above All Things]; Say, A sword, a sword is sharpened, and also furbished:
10It is sharpened to make a sore slaughter; it is furbished that it may glitter: should we then make gladness? it scorns the rod of my son, [as] every tree.
11And he has given it to be furbished, that it may be handled: this sword is sharpened, and it is furbished, to give it into the hand of the slayer.
12Cry and howl, Son of man: for it shall be upon my people, it [shall be] upon all the princes of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God]: terrors by reason of the sword shall be upon my people: strike therefore upon [youi] thigh.
13Because [it is] a trial, and what if [the sword] contemn (despise with mockery; show contempt) even the rod? it shall be no [more], says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER).
14Youi therefore, Son of man, prophesy, and strike [youri] hands together, and let the sword be doubled the third time, the sword of the slain: it [is] the sword of the great [men that are] slain, which enters into their private chambers.
15I have set the point of the sword against all their gates, that [their] heart may faint, and [their] ruins be multiplied: ah! [it is] made bright, [it is] wrapped up for the slaughter.
16Go youi one way or other, [either] on the right hand, [or] on the left, to wherever youri face [is] set.
17I will also strike my hands together, and I will cause my fury to rest: I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) have said [it].
18The word of the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) came unto me again, saying,
19Also, youi Son of man, appoint youi two ways, that the sword of the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] may come: both two shall come forth out of one land: and choose youi a place, choose [it] at the head of the way to the city.
20Appoint a way, that the sword may come to Rabbah [Great] [Great] of the ‘Amon [Inbred], and to Y’hudah [Let Him (God) Be Praised] in Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace] the fortified.
21For the king of Bavel (to jumble, or a confused medley of sounds; confusion; gate of the deity) (Babylon) [confusion] stood at the parting of the way, at the head of the two ways, to use divination: he made [his] arrows bright, he consulted with images, he looked in the liver.
22At his right hand was the divination for Yerushalayim [Foundation of Peace], to appoint captains, to open the mouth in the slaughter, to lift up the voice with shouting, to appoint [battering] rams against the gates, to cast a mount, [and] to build a fort.
23And it shall be unto them as a false divination in their sight, to them that have sworn oaths: but he will call to (to do entirely, do wholly) remembrance the iniquity, that they may be taken.
24Therefore thus says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER); Because you2f have made your iniquity to be remembered, in that your transgressions are discovered, so that in all your doings your sins do appear; because, [I say], that you2f are come to remembrance, you2f shall be taken with the hand.
25And youi, Profane (treat as common; defile) wicked prince of Yisra’el [He Holds Onto The Heel Of God], whose day is come, when iniquity [shall have] an end,
26Thus says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER); Remove the Diadem (royal headband worn by Eastern kings), and take off the crown: this [shall] not [be] the same: exalt [him that is] low, and abase [him that is] high.
27I will overturn, overturn, overturn, it: and it shall be no [more], until he come whose right it is; and I will give it [him].
28And youi, Son of man, prophesy and say, Thus says the Lord-Adonai [Greatest Above All Things] GOD-Yehōvih (THE FATHER) concerning the ‘Amon [Inbred], and concerning their reproach (disgrace; shame); even say youi, The sword, the sword [is] drawn: for the slaughter [it is] furbished, to consume because of the glittering:
29Whiles they see vanity unto youi, whiles they divine a lie unto youi, to bring youi upon the necks of [them that are] slain, of the wicked, whose day is come, when their iniquity [shall have] an end.
30Shall I cause [it] to return into his sheath? I will judge youi in the place where youi were created, in the land of youri nativity.
31And I will pour out my indignation upon youi, I will blow against youi in the fire of my wrath, and deliver youi into the hand of cruel men, [and] skillful to destroy.
32Youi shall be for fuel to the fire; youri blood shall be in the midst of the land; youi shall be no [more] remembered: for I the Lord-Yehōvah (Messiah Pre-Incarnate) have spoken [it].
