6 And the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 2 Son of man, aset thy face toward bthe mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them, 3 bbAnd say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord God; Thus saith the Lord God cto the mountains, and cto the hills, to cdthe rivers, and ceto the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and fI will destroy your high places. 4 And your altars shall be desolate, and fyour ||images shall be broken: and fgI will cast down your slain men before your idols. 5 And fI will †lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols; and gI hwill scatter your bones round about your altars. 6 In all your dwellingplaces the cities ishall be laid waste, and fthe high places gshall be desolate; that your altars imay be laid waste and jmade desolate, and your idols may be broken and cease, and your kimages may be cut down, and your works may be abolished. 7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, land ye shall know that I am the Lord.
8 mYet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have nsome that shall escape the sword among the nations, owhen ye shall be scattered through the countries. 9 And nthey that escape of you mpshall remember me among the nations whither they shall be carried captives, because qI am broken with their whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and rwith their eyes, which sgo a whoring after their idols: and ptthey shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations. 10 And lthey shall know that I am the Lord, and that uI have not said vin vain that I would do this evil unto them.
11 Thus saith the Lord God; Smite wwith thine hand, and xstamp with thy foot, and say, Alas for all the evil abominations of the house of Israel! for ythey shall fall by the sword, by the famine, and by the pestilence. 12 yHe that is far off shall die of the pestilence; and he that is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is besieged shall die by the famine: zthus will I accomplish my fury upon them. 13 Then lshall ye know that I am the Lord, awhen their slain men shall be among their idols round about their altars, bupon every high hill, cin all the tops of the mountains, and bunder every green tree, and cunder every thick doak, the place where they did offer esweet savour to all their idols. 14 So will I fstretch out my hand upon them, and gmake the land desolate, yea, ||more desolate than the wilderness toward iDiblath, kin all their habitations: land they shall know that I am the Lord.
