Ezekiel 20:13–24

13 But the house of Israel erebelled against me in the wilderness: fthey walked not in my statutes, and fthey despised my judgments, awhich if a man do, he shall even live in them; and cfmy sabbaths they greatly polluted: gthen I said, I would pour out my fury upon them hin the wilderness, gto consume them. 14 iBut I wrought for my name’s sake, ithat it should not be polluted before the heathen, iin whose sight I brought them out. 15 Yet also I klifted up my hand unto them in the wilderness, that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, lflowing with milk and honey, lwhich is the glory of all lands; 16 Because fthey despised my judgments, and fwalked not in my statutes, but fpolluted cmy sabbaths: for mtheir heart went after their idols. 17 nNevertheless omine eye spared them from destroying them, neither pdid I make an end of them in the wilderness. 18 But I said unto qtheir children in the wilderness, Walk ye not in rthe statutes of your fathers, neither observe their judgments, nor sdefile yourselves with their idols: 19 I am the Lord your God; twalk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and do them; 20 And uhallow cmy sabbaths; and uuthey shall be a sign between me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God. 21 Notwithstanding vthe children wrebelled against me: fthey walked not in my statutes, fneither kept my judgments to do them, awhich if a man do, he shall even live in them; fthey polluted my sabbaths: gthen I said, I would pour out my fury upon them, wto accomplish my anger against them in the wilderness. 22 nNevertheless I withdrew mine hand, and iwrought for my name’s sake, ithat it should not be polluted in the sight of the heathen, in whose sight I brought them forth. 23 I xlifted up mine hand unto them also in the wilderness, that I would yscatter them among the heathen, and zdisperse them through the countries; 24 Because fthey had not executed my judgments, but fhad despised my statutes, and fhad polluted my sabbaths, and atheir eyes were after their fathers’ idols.
