The Vision of Slaughter

1 Then He cried out in my hearing with a loud avoice saying, “Draw near, 1O executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand.”

2 Behold, six men came from the direction of the upper gate which faces north, each with his shattering weapon in his hand; and among them was aa certain man clothed in linen with a 1writing case at his loins. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

3 Then the aglory of the God of Israel went up from the cherub on which it had been, to the threshold of the 1temple. And He called to the man clothed in linen at whose loins was the writing case.

4 The Lord said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a amark on the foreheads of the men who bsigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst.”

5 But to the others He said in my hearing, “Go through the city after him and strike; do not let your eye have pity and do not spare.

6 “1Utterly aslay old men, young men, maidens, little children, and women, but do not btouch any man on whom is the mark; and you shall cstart from My sanctuary.” So they started with the 2elders who were before the 3temple.
