Ezekiel 8:3–11

He stretched out what looked like a handa and took me by the hair of my head. The Spirit lifted me upb between earth and heaven and in visionsc of God he took me to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the north gate of the inner court,d where the idol that provokes to jealousye stood. And there before me was the gloryf of the God of Israel, as in the vision I had seen in the plain.g

Then he said to me, “Son of man, look toward the north.” So I looked, and in the entrance north of the gate of the altar I saw this idolh of jealousy.

And he said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they are doing—the utterly detestablei things the Israelites are doing here, things that will drive me far from my sanctuary?j But you will see things that are even more detestable.”

Then he brought me to the entrance to the court. I looked, and I saw a hole in the wall. He said to me, “Son of man, now dig into the wall.” So I dug into the wall and saw a doorway there.

And he said to me, “Go in and see the wicked and detestable things they are doing here.” 10 So I went in and looked, and I saw portrayed all over the wallsk all kinds of crawling things and uncleanl animals and all the idols of Israel.m 11 In front of them stood seventy eldersn of Israel, and Jaazaniah son of Shaphan was standing among them. Each had a censero in his hand, and a fragrant cloud of incensep was rising.q
