▼ Lit make it pass over your headuse it as a barber’s razor on your head and beard. Then take c scales for weighing and divide ▼
▼ Lit themthe hair. 2 “One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the e days of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around ▼
▼ Lit itthe city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will g unsheathe a sword behind them. 3 “Take also a few in number from ▼
▼ Lit therethem and bind them in the edges of your robes. 4 “Take again some of them and throw them into the fire and burn them in the fire; from it a fire will ▼
▼ Lit go outspread to all the house of Israel. 5 “Thus says the Lord ▼
▼ Heb YHWH, usually rendered Lord , and so throughout the chGod, ‘This is k Jerusalem; I have set her at the l center of the nations, with lands around her. 6 ‘But she has rebelled against My ordinances more wickedly than the nations and against My statutes m more than the lands which surround her; for they have n rejected My ordinances and have not walked ▼
▼ Lit in them, My statutesin My statutes.’ 7 “Therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Because you have p more turmoil than the nations which surround you and have not walked in My statutes, nor observed My ordinances, nor observed the ordinances of the nations which surround you,’ 8 therefore, thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I, even I, am q against you, and I will r execute judgments among you in the sight of the nations. 9 ‘And because of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have s not done, and the like of which I will never do again. 10 ‘Therefore, t fathers will eat their sons among you, and sons will eat their fathers; for I will execute judgments on you and u scatter all your remnant to every wind. 11 ‘So as I live,’ declares the Lord God, ‘surely, because you have v defiled My sanctuary with all your w detestable idols and with all your abominations, therefore I will also withdraw, and My eye will have no pity and I will not spare. 12 ‘One third of you will die by x plague or be consumed by famine among you, one third will fall by the sword around you, and one third I will y scatter to every wind, and I will z unsheathe a sword behind them. 13 ‘Thus My anger will be spent and I will ▼
▼ Lit cause to restsatisfy My wrath on them, and I will be ▼
▼ Lit comforted, ac appeased; then they will know that I, the Lord, have ad spoken in My zeal when I have spent My wrath upon them. 14 ‘Moreover, I will make you a desolation and a ae reproach among the nations which surround you, in the sight of all who pass by. 15 ‘So ▼
▼ Ancient versions read youit will be a reproach, a reviling, a ag warning and an object of horror to the nations who surround you when I ah execute judgments against you in anger, wrath and raging rebukes. I, the Lord, have spoken. 16 ‘When I send against them the ▼
▼ Lit evildeadly arrows of famine which ▼
▼ Or are for destruction, which I will sendwere for the destruction of those whom I will send to destroy you, then I will also intensify the famine upon you and break the staff of bread. 17 ‘Moreover, ak I will send on you famine and wild beasts, and they will bereave you of children; al plague and bloodshed also will pass through you, and I will bring the sword on you. I, the Lord, have spoken.’”
