Idolaters Killed1 Then he cried in my ears with a loud voice, saying, “Bring near the executioners of the city, a each with his destroying weapon in his hand.” 2 And behold, six men came from the direction of b the upper gate, which faces north, each with his weapon for slaughter in his hand, and with them was c a man clothed in linen, with a writing case at his waist. And they went in and stood beside d the bronze altar. 3 Now e the glory of the God of Israel had gone up from the cherub on which it rested to f the threshold of the house. And he called to g the man clothed in linen, who had the writing case at his waist. 4 And the Lord said to him, “Pass through the city, through Jerusalem, and h put a mark on the foreheads of the men who i sigh and groan over all the abominations that are committed in it.” 5 And to j the others he said in my hearing, “Pass through the city after him, and strike. k Your eye shall not spare, and you shall show no pity. 6 l Kill old men outright, young men and maidens, little children and women, but m touch no one on whom is the mark. And n begin at my sanctuary.” So they began with the elders who were before the house. 7 Then he said to them, o “Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain. Go out.” So they went out and struck in the city. 8 And while they were striking, and I was left alone, p I fell upon my face, and cried, q “Ah, Lord God! r Will you destroy all the remnant of Israel s in the outpouring of your wrath on Jerusalem?” 9 Then he said to me, t “The guilt of the house of Israel and Judah is exceedingly great. u The land is full of blood, and the city full of injustice. For v they say, ‘The Lord has forsaken the land, and the Lord does not see.’ 10 As for me, w my eye will not spare, nor will I have pity; x I will bring their deeds upon their heads.” 11 And behold, y the man clothed in linen, with the writing case at his waist, brought back word, saying, “I have done as you commanded me.”
