24 There is "^Elam and all her multitude
round about her grave, all of them slain,
fallen by the sword, which are ^gone down
uncircumcised into the nether parts of the
earth, « which caused their terror in the land
of the living ; yet have they borne their shame
with them that go down to the pit.

25 They have set her a bed in the midst
of the slain with all her multitude : her graves
are round about him : all of them uncircum-
cised, slain by the sword : though their terror
was caused in the land of the living, yet have
they borne their shame with them that go
down to the pit : he is put in the midst of
them that be slain.

26 There is ^Meshech, Tubal, and all her
multitude : her graves are round about him :
all of them ? uncircumcised, slain hj the
swOrd, though they caused their terror in the
land of the living.

27 ''And they shall not lie with the
mighty that are fallen of the uncircumcised,
which are gone down to hell twith their
wdkpons of war : and they have laid their
swords under their heads, but their iniquities
shall be upon their bones, though they were
the terror of the mighty in the land of the
living.

28 Yea, thou shalt be broken in the midst
of the uncircumcised, and shalt lie with them
that are slain with the sword.

29 There is 'Edom, her kings, and all her
princes, which with their might are tlaid by
them that were slain by the sword : they shall
lie with the uncircumcised, and with them
that go down to the pit.

30 ''There be the princes of the north, all
of them, and all the 'Zidonians, which are
gone down with the slain ; with their terror
they are ashamed of their might ; and they
lie uncircumcised with them that be slain by
the sword, and bear their shame with them
that go down to the pit.

31 Pharaoh shall see them, and shall be
"> comforted over all his multitude, even Pha-
raoh and all his army slain by the sword,
saith the Lord God.

32 For I have caused my terror in the
land of the living : and he shall be laid in
the midst of the uncircumcised with them
that are slain with the sword, even Pha-
raoh and all his multitude, saith the Lord
God.

The duty of a watchman.

AGAIN the word of the Lord came
unto me, saying,

2 Son of man, speak to "the children of
thy people, and say unto them, •'fWhen I
bring the sword upon a land, if the people of
the land take a man of their coasts, and set
him for their •= watchman:

3 If when he seeth the sword come upon
the land, he blow the trumpet, and warn the
people ;

4 Then, f whosoever heareth the sound of
the trumpet, and taketh not warning; if the
sword come and take him away, ^ his blood
shall be upon his own head.

5 He heard the sound of the trumpet, and
took not warning ; his blood shall be upon
him. But he that taketh warning shall
deliver his soul.

6 But if the watchman see the sword come,
and blow not the trumpet, and the people be
not warned; if the sword come, and take any
person from among them, «he is taken away
in his iniquity ; but his blood will I require
at the watchman's hand.

7 IfSothou, O son of man, I have set thee
a watchman unto the house of Israel ; there-
fore thou shall hear the word at my mouth,
and warn them from me.

8 When I say unto the wicked, O wicked
man, thou shalt surely die ; if thou dost not
speak to warn the wicked from his way, that
wicked man shall die in his iniquity ; but his
blood will I require at thine hand.

9 Nevertheless, if thou warn the wicked of
his way to turn from it ; if he do not turn
from his way, he shall die in his iniquity ;
but thou hast delivered thy soul.

10 Therefore, O thou son of man, speak
unto the house of Israel; Thus ye speak, say-
ing, If our transgressions and our sins he
upon us, and we spine away in them, ''how
should we then live ?

11 Say unto them, As I live, saith the
Lord God, ' I have no pleasure in the death
of the wicked; but that the wicked turn from
his way and live : turn ye, turn ye from your
evil ways; for "^why will ye die, O house of
Israel ?

12 Therefore, thou son of man, say unto
the children of thy people, The ' righteous-
ness of the righteous shall not deliver him in
the day of his transgression : as for the wick-
edness of the wicked, ""he shall not fall
thereby in the day that he turneth from his
wickedness ; neither shall the righteous be
able to live for his righteousness in the day

■ that he sinneth.

13 When I shall say to the righteous, that
he shall surely live; "if he trust to his own
righteousness, and commit iniquity, all his

righteousnesses shall not be remembered;
but for his iniquity that he hath committed,
he shall die for it.

14 Again, °when I say unto the wicked,
Thou shalt surely die ; if he turn from his
sin, and do t that which is lawful and right ;

15 i/'the wicked Prestore the pledge, ^give
again that he had robbed, walk in " the sta-
tutes of life, without committing iniquity ; he
shall surely live, he shall not die.

16 'None of his sins that he hath com-
mitted shall be mentioned unto him : he hath
done that which is lawful and right; he shall
surely live.

17 IT ' Yet the children of thy people say,
The way of the Lord is not equal : but as for
them, their way is not equal.

18 "When the righteous turneth from his
righteousness, and committeth iniquity, he
shall even die thereby.

19 But if the wicked turn from his wicked-
ness, and do that which is lawful and right,
he shall live thereby.

20 IT Yet ye say, ^The way of the Lord is
not equal. O ye house of Israel, I will judge
you every one after his ways.

21 H And it came to pass in the twelfth
year yof our captivity, in the tenth month, in
the fifth day of the month, ^ that one that
had escaped out of Jerusalem came unto me
saying, "The city is smitten.

22 Now '•the hand of the Lord was
upon me in the evening, afore he that was
escaped came ; and had opened my mouth,
until he came to me in the morning ; « and
my mouth was opened, and I was no more
dumb.

23 Then the word of the Lord came
unto me, saying,

24 Son of man, ^ they that inhabit those
" wastes of the land of Israel speak, saying,
*" Abraham was one, and he inherited the
land : s but we are many ; the land is given
us for inheritance.

25 Wherefore, say unto them. Thus saith
the Lord God ; ''Ye eat with the blood, and
' lift up your eyes toward your idols, and ■= shed
blood: and^ shall ye possess the land?

26 Ye stand upon your sword, ye work
abomination, and ye ■" defile ev.ery one his
neighbour's wife : and shall ye possess the
land?

27 Say thou thus unto them. Thus saith
the Lord God ; As I live, surely " they that
are in the wastes, shall fall by the sword, and
him that is in the open field, "will I give to
the beasts tto be devoured, and they that he
in the forts and Pin the caves, shall die of the
pestilence.

28 1 For I will lay the land t most deso-

late, and the ''pomp of her strength shall
cease; and =the mountains of Israel shall be
desolate, that none shall pass through.

29 Then shall they know that I am the
Lord, when I have laid the land most deso-
late because of all their abominations which
they have committed.

30 % Also, thou son of man, the children
of thy people still are talking {{ against thee
by the walls and in the doors of the houses,
and ' speak one to another, every one to his
brother, saying. Come, I pray you, and hear
what is the word that cometh forth from the
Lord.

31 And "they come unto thee fas the
people cometh, and | they ^sit before thee as
my people, and they hear thy words, but they
will not do them : y for with their mouth
t they shew much love, hut ^ their heart goeth
after their covetousness.

32 And lo, thou art unto them as t a
very lovely song of one that hath a pleasant
voice, and can play well on an instrument :
for they hear thy words, but they do them
not.

33 "And when this cometh to pass, (lo, it
will come,) then '•shall they know that a
prophet hath been among them.

ND the word of the Lord came unto
me, saying,

2 Son of man, prophesy against the ''shep-

Thus saith the Lord God unto the shep-
herds ; ^ Wo he to the shepherds of Israel
that do feed themselves ! should not the
shepherds feed the flocks?

3 " Ye eat the fat, and ye clothe you with
the wool, '■ye kill them that are fed : hut ye
feed not the flock.

4 ''The diseased have ye not strengthened,
neither have ye healed that which was sick,
neither have ye bound up that which was
broken, neither have ye brought, again that
which was driven away, neither have ye
f sought tha^ which was lost; but with s force
and with cruelty have ye ruled them.

5 ^ And they were ' scattered, || because
there is no shepherd : ^ and they became meat
to all the beasts of the field, when they were
scattered.

6 My sheep wandered through all the
mountains, and upon every high hill : yea,
my flock was scattered upon all the face of
the earth, and none did search or seek after
them.

God's judgment against them.

7 1 Therefore, ye shepherds, hear the word
of the Lord ;

8 .45 I live, saith the Lord God, surely
because my flock became a prey, and my flock
' became meat to every beast of the field, be-
cause there was no shepherd, neither did
my shepherds search for my flock, "but the
shepherds fed themselves, and fed not my
flock ;

9 Therefore, O ye shepherds, hear the
word of the Lord ;

10 Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, 1
am against the shepherds ; and " I will re-
quire my flock at their hand, and cause them
to cease from feeding the flock; neither shall
the shepherds "feed themselves anymore ; for
I will deliver my flock from their mouth, that
they may not be meat for them.

11 t For thus saith the Lord God; Be-
hold, I, even I, will both search my sheep,
and seek them out.

12 1 As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in
the day that he is among his sheep that are
scattered ; so will I seek out my sheep, and
will deliver them out of all places where they
have been scattered in Pthe cloudy and dark
day.

13 And 1 1 will bring them out from the
people, and gather them from the countries,
and will bring them to their own land, and
feed them upon the mountains of Israel by
the rivers, and in all the inhabited places of
the country.

14 'I" will feed them in a good pasture,
and upon the high mountains of Israel shall
their fold be: nhere shall they lie in a good
fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon
the mountains of Israel.

15 I wiU feed my flock, and I will cause
them to lie down, saith the Lord God.

16 ' I will seek that which was lost, and
bring again that which was driven away, and
will bind up that which was broken, and will
strengthen that which was sick : but I will
destroy "the fat and the strong ; I will feed
them ^with judgment.

17 And as for you, O my flock, thus saith
the Lord God; y Behold, I judge between
t cattle and cattle, between the rams and the
t he-goats.

18 Seemeih it a small thing unto, you to
have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must
tread down with your feet the residue of your
pastures ? and to have drunk of the deep
waters, but ye must foul the residue with
your feet?

19 And as for my flock, they eat that
which ye have trodden with your feet ; and
they drink that which ye have fouled with
your feet.

20 IT Therefore thus saith the Lord God
unto them; ''Behold, I, even I, will judge
between the fat cattle and between the lean
cattle.

21 Because ye have thrust with side and
with shoulder, and pushed all the diseased
with youi horns, till ye have scattered them
abroad ;

22 Therefore will I save my flock, and
they shall no more be a prey; and "I will
judge between cattle and cattle.

23 And I will set up one ^ Shepherd over
them, and he shall feed them, "even my
servant David '; he shall feed them,.and he
shall be their shepherd.

24 And "^ I the Lord will be their God,
and my servant David ^ a prince among them ;
I the Lord have spoken it.

25 And ^I will make with them a cove-
nant of peace, and swill cause the evil beasts
to cease out of the land: and they ''shall
dwell safely in the wilderness, and sleep in
the woods.

26 And I will make them and the places
round about 'my hill ''a blessing ; and I will
'cause the shower to come down in his sea-
son; there shall be ""showers of blessing.

27 And "the tree of the field shall yield
her fruit, and the earth shall yield her in-
crease, and they shall be safe in their land,
and shall know that I am the Lord, when

I have "broken the bands of their yoke, and
delivered them out of the hand of those that
P served themselves of them. •

28 And they shall no more ibe a prey to
the heathen, neither shall the beasts of the
land devour them; but ""they shall dwell
safely, and none shall make them afraid.

29 And I will raise up for them a "plant

II of renown, and they shall be no more
t consumed with hunger in the land, * nei-
ther bear the shame of the heathen any
more.

30 Thus shall they know that "I the Lord
their God am with them, and that they, even
the house of Israel, are my people, saith the
Lord God.

31 And ye my ^flock, the flock of my
pasture, are men, and I am your God, saith
the Lord God.

hatred, and hast f shed ' the blood of the
children of Israel by the t force of the sword
in the time of their calamity, e'm the time
that their iniquity had an end :

6 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord
God, I will prepare thee unto blood, and
blood shall pursue thee : ''since thou hast not
hated blood, even blood shall pursue thee.

7 Thus will I make mount Seir f most de-
solate, and cut off" from it 'him that passeth
out and him that returneth.

8 ''And I will fill his mountains with his
slain men : in thy hills, and in thy valleys,
and in all thy rivers, shall they fall that are
slain with the sword.

9 'I will make thee perpetual desolations,
and thy cities shall not return : ■" and ye shall
know that I am the Lord.

10 Because thou hast said. These two na-
tions and these two countries shall be mine,
and we will "possess it ; || whereas °the Lord
was there :

11 Therefore, as I live, saith the Lord
God, I will even do p according to thine
anger, and according to thine envy which
thou hast used out of thy hatred against
them; and I will make myself known among
them, when I have judged thee.

12 9 And thou shalt know that I am the
Lord, and that I have heard all thy blas-
phemies which thou hast spoken against the
mountains of Israel, saying. They are laid
desolate, they are given us fto consume.

13 Thus "^ with your mouth ye have f boast-
ed against me, and have multiplied your
words against me : I have heard them.

14 Thus saith the Lord God ; "When the
whole earth rejoiceth, I will make thee deso-
late.

15 'As thou didst rejoice at the inherit-
ance of the house of Israel, because it was
desolate, so will I do unto thee : ° thou shalt *-
be desolate, O mount Seir, and all Idumea,
even all of it : and they shall know that I am
the Lord.

CHAP. XXXVL

1 The land of Israel is comforted, both by destruction
of the heathen, who spitefully -used it, 8 and by the
blessings of God promised unto it. 16 Israel was re-
jected for their sin, 21 and shall be restored without
their desert. 25 The blessings of Christ's kingdom.

The land of Israel is comforted.

2 Thus saith the Lord God ; Because
I" the enemy hath said against you, Aha, ''even
the ancient high places ^ are ours in posses-
sion :

3 Therefore, prophesy and say, Thus saith
the Lord God; f Because they have made
you desolate, and swallowed you up on every
side, that ye might be a possession unto the
residue of the heathen, *and ||ye are taken
up in the lips of talkers, and are an infamy
of the people :

4 Therefore, 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 II rivers, and to the valleys, to the
desolate wastes, and to the cities that are for-
saken, which f became a prey and s: derision
to the residue of the heathen that are round
about ;

5 Therefore thus saith the Lord God ;
•■ Surely in the fire of my jealousy have I
spoken against the residue of the heathen,
and against all Idumea, 'which have appoint-
ed my land into their possession with the joy
of all their heart, with despiteful minds, to
cast it out for a prey.

6 Prophesy therefore concerning the land
of Israel, and say unto the mountains, and
to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys.
Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, I have
spoken in my jealousy and in my fury, be-
cause ye have ''borne the shame of the hea-
then :

7 Therefore thus saith the Lord God ; I
have 'lifted up mine hand: Surely the hea-
then that are about -you, they shall bear
their shame.

8 IT But ye, O mountains of Israel, ye shall
shoot forth your branches, and yield your fruit
to my people of Israel ; for they are at hand
to come.
