6:1 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
6:2 Son of man, set thy face towards the mountains of Israel,
and prophesy against them,
6:3 And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord
GOD: Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains, and to the
hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys; Behold, I, [even] I,
will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your high
6:4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be
broken: and I will cast down your slain [men] before your
6:5 And I will lay the dead carcasses of the children of Israel
before their idols; and I will scatter your bones about your
6:6 In all your dwelling-places the cities shall be laid waste,
and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be
laid waste and made desolate, and your idols may be broken and
cease, and your images may be cut down, and your works may be
6:7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall
know that I [am] the LORD.
6:8 Yet will I leave a remnant, that ye may have [some] that
shall escape the sword among the nations, when ye shall be
scattered through the countries.
6:9 And they that escape of you shall remember me among the
nations whither they shall be carried captives, because I am
broken with their apostate heart, which hath departed from me,
and with their eyes which go astray after their idols: and they
shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed
in all their abominations.
6:10 And they shall know that I [am] the LORD, [and that] I have
not said in vain that I would do this evil to them.
6:11 Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thy hand, and stamp
with thy foot, and say, Alas, for all the evil abominations of
the house of Israel! for they shall fall by the sword, by the
famine, and by the pestilence.
6:12 He that is far off shall die by the pestilence; and he that
is near shall fall by the sword; and he that remaineth and is
besieged shall die by the famine: thus will I accomplish my
fury upon them.
6:13 Then shall ye know that I [am] the LORD, when their slain
[men] shall be among their idols round about their altars, upon
every high hill, on all the tops of the mountains, and under
every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where
they offered sweet savor to all their idols.
6:14 So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land
desolate, even, more desolate than the wilderness towards
Diblath, in all their habitations: and they shall know that I
[am] the LORD.
