1 And the word of the Lord came to me:
2 And thou, son of man, say: Thus saith the Lord GOD; The end of the land of Israel; the end came to the four corners of the earth.
3 This is the end of you; And I will send my wrath upon you, and I will judge you according to your ways, and I will put all your abominations on you.
4 My eye does not spare you, and I will not have mercy, and I will repay you according to your ways, and your abominations will be with you, and you will know that I am the Lord.
5 Thus says the Lord God: the only trouble, behold, there is trouble.
6th The end has come, the end has come, has risen on you; Here it is,
7th Has come to attack you, a resident of the earth! Time comes, a day of confusion approaches, and not cheerful exclamations on the mountains.
8 Behold, I will pour out my fury upon thee, and will accomplish my wrath upon you, and will judge you according to your ways, and I will put all your abominations in you.
9 My eye does not spare you, neither will I have mercy. In your ways I will repay you, and your abominations will be with you. And you will know that I am the Lord of the Punisher.
10 Here is the day! Here comes, it has come to attack! The staff has grown, pride has grown.
eleven The strength of wickedness is rising; Nothing [is left] of them, and from their wealth, and from their noise, and from their splendor.
12 The time has come, the day has come; Buy not rejoice, and sold not to cry; For wrath is upon all their multitude.
13 For the seller does not return to the sold, even if they were alive; For the prophetic vision of the whole multitude of them will not be abolished, and no one will strengthen his life with his lawlessness.
14 They will blow a trumpet, and everything is ready, but no one goes to war: for my wrath is over all their multitude.
15 Outside the house a sword, and in the house there is a sea and a famine. He that is in the field shall die by the sword; But who is in the city, hunger and a pestilence will devour.

16 And the survivors of them will flee and will be on the mountains, like the dove of the valleys; They will all moan, each for their own iniquity.
17th Everyone's hands will descend, and all knees will tremble, like water.
18 Then they gird themselves with sackcloth, and make them tremble; And everyone will have shame on their faces, and everyone has a bald pat on their heads.
19 They will throw their silver into the streets, and they will neglect gold. Their silver and their gold will not save them much in the day of the wrath of the LORD. They will not satisfy their souls, nor fill their womb; Because it was the cause of their iniquity.
20 And in their red robes they turned him into pride, and made of him images of his infamous idols; Therefore I will make him unclean for them;
21 And I will give it into the hands of strangers to the prey, and to the wicked of the land, to spoil, and they shall defile it.
22 And I will turn away my face from them, and they shall defile my hidden; And robbers will come there, and defile it.

23 Make a chain, for this land is filled with bloody atrocities, and the city is full of violence.
24 I will bring the worst of the nations, and they will possess their houses. And I will put an end to the arrogance of the mighty, and their sanctuaries shall be defiled.
25 There is ruin; They will seek peace, and they will not find it.
26th Trouble will go after the poor and the news for the news; And they will ask the prophet for a vision, and the priest will not have a teaching and advice from the elders.
27th The king will mourn, and the prince will be clothed with terror, and the people of the earth will tremble their hands. I will deal with them according to their ways, and according to their judgments I will judge them; And they shall know that I am the LORD.
