one And the word of the Lord came to me:
2 and you, son of man, do you want to judge, judge the city of blood? tell him all his abominations.
3 And say: thus saith the Lord God: O city that sheds blood among itself so that your time may come and makes idols in itself to defile itself!
4 With the blood that you shed, you made yourself guilty, and with the idols you made, you defiled yourself, and brought your days closer and reached your expiration. For this I will give you to ridicule the nations, to reproach all the lands.
5 Those close and far from you will swear at you, who defiled your name, who became famous for its violence.
6 Behold, the rulers of Israel, each according to their strength, were with you to shed blood.
7 Your father and mother are being slandered, an alien is being insulted among you, an orphan and a widow are oppressing you.
8 You do not respect my holy places, and you break my sabbaths.
nine The slanderers are in you to shed blood, and on the mountains they eat from you [idolatrous], among you they make vileness.
10 Father’s nudity is revealed to you, your wife is raped from you during the purification of sewage.
eleven Another makes an abomination with his neighbor's wife, another defiles his daughter-in-law, another rapes his sister, the daughter of his father.
12 You take bribes to shed blood; you take growth and more interest and by violence extort self-interest from your neighbor, but you have forgotten Me, says the Lord God.
thirteen And now, I clasped My hands about your self-interest, which is revealed in you, and about the bloodshed that occurs among you.
14 Will your heart stand, will your hands be firm in those days in which I will act against you? I, the Lord, have said and will do.
fifteen And I will scatter you among the nations, and scatter you among the lands, and put an end to your abominations among you.
sixteen And you will make yourself despicable before the eyes of the nations, and you will know that I am the Lord.

17 And the word of the Lord came to me:
eighteen son of man! the house of Israel became a burnout with me; all of them — tin, copper, and iron and lead in the crucible — became like a burn of silver.
nineteen Therefore, thus says the Lord God: since all of you have become barren, for behold, I will gather you to Jerusalem.
twenty Like putting silver, and copper, and iron, and lead, and tin together in a crucible to blow fire on them and melt; so I will gather in My anger and My fury, and I will lay it down and melt you.
21 I will gather you and die on you with the fire of My indignation, and melt among it.
22 As silver is melted in the crucible, so you will melt in the midst of it, and you will know that I, the Lord, have poured My fury on you.

23 And the word of the Lord came to me:
24 son of man! tell him: you are untreated land, not irrigated by rain on the day of wrath!
25 The conspiracy of her prophets among her is like a roaring lion tormenting prey; they eat souls, rob property and valuables, and multiply the number of widows.
26 Her priests break My law and defile My shrines, do not separate the holy from the unholy, and do not distinguish between clean and unclean, and from My Sabbath they closed their eyes, and I am humbled by them.
27 Her princes are like wolves abducting prey; shed blood, destroy souls to gain self-interest.
28 And the prophets cover it all with mud, see the empty and predict the false to them, saying: “Thus says the Lord God,” while the Lord did not say.
29th And among the people they oppress each other, rob and oppress the poor and the poor, and the aliens are oppressed unjustly.
thirty I was looking for a man in them who would put up a wall and stand before Me in the gap for this land, so that I would not destroy it, but could not find it.
31 So I will pour out My indignation upon them, I will destroy them with the fire of My fury, I will turn their behavior on their heads, says the Lord God.
