Israel rejected for their sins.

they say unto you, ^Thou land devourest up
men, and hast bereaved thy nations ;
' 14 Therefore,. thou shalt devour men no
more, neither || bereave thy nations anymore,
saith the Lord God.

15 'Neither will I cause men to hear in
thee the shame of the heathen any more,
neither shalt thou bear the reproach of the
people any more, neither shalt thou cause
thy nations to fall any more, saith the Lord

16 II Moreover the word of the Lord came
unto me, saying,

17 Son of man, when the house of Israel
dwelt in their own land, 'they defiled it by
their own way and by their doings : their
way was before me as "the uncleanness of a
removed woman.

.18 Wherefore, I poured my fury upon
them ^for the blood that they had shed upon
the land, and for their idols wherewith they
had polluted it:

19 And I y scattered them among the hea-
then, and they were dispersed through the
countries : ^ according to their way and ac-
cording to their doings I judged them.

20 And when they entered unto the hea-
then, whither they went, they ''profaned my
holy name, when they said to them, These
are the people of the Lord, and are gone
forth out of his land.

21 IT But I had pity '' for mine holy name,
which the house of Israel had profaned among
the heathen, whither they went.

22 Therefore, say unto the house of Israel,
Thus saith the Lord God ; I do not this for
your sakes, O house of Israel, 'but for mine
holy name's sake, which ye have profaned
among the heathen, whither ye went.

23 And I will sanctify my great name,
which was profaned among the heathen,
which ye have profaned in the midst of them ;
and the heathen shall know that I am the
Lord, saith the Lord God, when I shall be
'' sanctified in you before || their eyes.

24 For "I will take you from among the
heathen, and gather you out of all countries,
and will bring you into your own land.

25 IT ''Then will I sprinkle clean water upon
you, and ye shall be clean : sfrom all your
filthiness, and from all your idols, will I
cleanse you.

26 A ''new heart also will I give you, and
a new spirit will I put within you : and I will
take away the stony heart out of your flesh,
and I will give you an heart of flesh.
. 27 And I will put my 'Spirit within you,
and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye
shall keep my judgments, and do them.

28 ''And ye shall dwell in the land that

I gave to your fathers ; ' and ye shall be my
people, and I will be your God.
• 29 I will also ■" save you from all your
uncleannesses: and "I will call for the corn,
and will increase it, and °lay no famine upon

30 P And I will multiply the fruit of the
tree, and the increase of the field, that ye
shall receive no more reproach of famine
among the heathen.

31 Then i shall ye remember your own
evil ways, and your doings that were not
good, and 'shall loathe yourselves in your
own sight for your iniquities, and for your

32 " Not for your sakes do I this, saith the
Lord God, be it known unto you : be ashamed
and confounded for your own ways, O house
of Israel.

33 Thus saith the Lord God; In the day
that I shall have cleansed you from all your
iniquities I will also cause you to dwell in the
cities, * and the wastes shall be builded.

34 And the desolate land shall be tilled,
whereas it lay desolate in the sight of all that
passed by.

35 And they shall say. This land that was
desolate is become like the garden of "Eden;
and the waste and desolate and ruined cities
are become fenced, and are inhabited.

36 Then the heathen that are left round
about you shall know that I the Lord build
the ruined places, and plant that that was
desolate : ^I the Lord have spoken it, and
I will do it.

37 Thus saith the Lord God; yl will yet
for this be inquired of by the house of Israel,
to do it for them ; I will = increase them with
men like a flock.

38 As the fholy flock, as the flock of
Jerusalem in her soleipn feasts ; so shall the
waste cities be filled with flocks of men : and
they shall know that I am the Lord.

The resurrection of dry bones.

these -bones, and say unto them, O ye dry
bones, hear the word of the Lord.

5 Thus saith the Lord God unto these
bones; Behold, I will ^ cause breath to enter
into you, and ye shall live :

6 And I will lay sinews upon you, and
will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you
with skin, and put breath in you, and ye
shall live ; ^and ye shall know that I am the

7 So I prophesied as I was commanded :
and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and
behold a shaking, and the bones came toge-
ther, bone to his bone.

8 And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and
the flesh came up upon them, and the skin
covered them above : but there'was no breath
in them.

9 Then said he unto me, Prophesy unto
the II wind, prophesy, son of man, and say
to the wind. Thus saith the Lord God;
"■ Come from the four winds, O breath, and
breathe upon these slain, that they may hve.

10 So I prophesied as he commanded me,
ffand the breath came into them, and they
lived, and stood up upon their feet, an ex-
ceeding great army.

1 in Then he said unto me. Son of man,
these bones are the whole house of Israel :
behold, they say, '' Our bones are dried, and
our hope is lost : we are cut oflf for our parts.

12 Therefore prophesy and say unto them.
Thus saith the Lord God ; Behold, ' O my
people, I will open your graves, and cause
you to come up out of your graves, and
''bring you into the land of Israel.

13 And ye shall know that I am the
Lord, when I have opened your graves, O
my people, and brought you up out of your

14 And ' shall put my Spirit in you, and
ye shall live, and 1 shall place you in your
own land : then shall ye know that I the
Lord have spoken it, and performed it, saith
the Lord.

15 HThe word of the Lord came again
unto me, saying,

16 Moreover, thou son of man, "take thee
one stick, and write upon it. For Judah, and
for ° the children of Israel his companions :
then take another stick, and write upon it.
For Joseph, the stick of Ephraim, andybr all
the house of Israel his companions :

17 And "join them one to another into one
stick; and they shall become one in thine

18 IF And when the children of thy people
shall speak unto thee, saying,? Wilt thou not
shew us what thou meanest by these .

19 iSay unto them, Thus saith the Lord

The promises*of Christ's kingdom,.

God ; Behold, I will take 'the stick of Jo-
seph, which is in the hand of Ephraim, and
the tribes of Israel his fellows, and will put
them with him, even with the stick of Judah,
and make them one stick, and they shall be
one in mine hand.

20 IT And the sticks whereon thou writest
shall be in thine hand ^before their eyes.

21 And say unto them. Thus saith the
Lord God ; Behold, »! will take the children
of Israel from among the heathen, whither
they be gone, and will gather them on every
side, and bring them into their own land :

22 And " I will make them one nation in
the land upon the mountains of Israel j and
*one king shall be king to them all: and
they shall be no more two nations, neither
shall they be divided into two kingdoms any
more at all :

23 y Neither shall they defile themselves
any more with their idols, nor with their de-
testable things, nor with any of their trans-
gressions : but ^I will save them out of all
their dwelling-places, wherein they have sin-
ned, and will cleanse them : so shall they be

The army and malice of Gog.

Behold, I am against thee, O Gog, the chief
prince of Meshech and Tubal :

4 And «I will turn thee back, and put hooks
into thy jaws, and I will bring thee forth,
and all thine army, horses and horsemen, fall
of them clothed with all sorts of armour, even
a great company with bucklers and shields,
all of them handling swords :

5 Persia, Ethiopia, and || Lybia with them;
all of them with shield and helmet :

6 « Gomer, and all his bands ; the house of
■' Togarmah of the north quarters, and all his
bands : and many people with thee.

7 ' Be thou prepared, and prepare for thy-
self, thou, and all thy company that are as-
sembled unto thee, and be thou a guard unto

8 U ■'After many days ■ thou shalt be visit-
ed : in the latter years thou shalt come into
the land that is brought back from the sword,
'"and is gathered out of many people, against
" the mountains of Israel, which have been
always waste : but it is brought forth oufof
the nations, and they shall ° dwell safely all
of them.

9 Thou shalt ascend and come Plike a
storm, thou shalt be i like a cloud to cover
the land, thou, and all thy bands, and many
people with thee.

10 Thus saith the Lord God; It shall
also come to pass, that at the same time shall
things come into thy mind, and thou shalt
II think an evil thought :

11 And thou shalt say, I will go up to the
land of unwalled villages ; I will ' go to
them that are at rest, nhat dwell || safely,
all of them dwelling without walls, and hav-
ing neither bars nor gates,

12 fTo take a spoil, and to take a prey ;
to turn thine hand upon Uhe desolate places
that are now inhabited, "and upon the people
that are gathered out of the nations, which
have gotten cattle and goods, that dwell in
the t midst of the land.

13 ^Sheba, and ^Dedan, and the mer-
chants ^ of Tarshish, with all "the young lions
thereof, shall say unto thee. Art thou come
to take a spoil ? hast thou gathered thy com-
pany to take a prey ? to carry away siFver and
gold, to take away cattle and goods, to take
a great spoil ?

14 H Therefore, son of man, prophesy and
say unto Gog, Thus saith the Lord God;
''In that daywhen my people of Israel "dwcll-
eth safely, shalt thou not know it ?

15 ''And thou ghalt come from thy place
out of the north parts, thou, <= and many peo-
ple with thee, all of them riding upon horses,

fit shall be in the latter days, and I will
bring thee against my land, Hhat the heathen
may know me, when I shall be sanctified in
thee, O Gog, before their eyes.

17 Thus saith the Lord God ; Art thou
he of whom I have spoken in old time f by
iny servants the prophets of Israel, which
prophesied in those days many years, that I
would bring thee against them?

18 And it shall come to pass at the same
time when Gog shall come against the land
of Israel, saith the Lord God, that my fury
shall come up in my face.

19 For 'in my jealousy ^and in the fire
of my wrath have I spoken, ' Surely in that
day there shall be a great shaking in the land
of Israel ;

20 So that ""the fishes of the sea, and the
fowls of the heaven, and the beasts of the
field, and all creeping things that creep upon
the earth, and all the men that are upon the
face of the earth, shall shake at my presence,
"and the mountains shall be thrown down,
and the 1| steep places shall fall, and every
wall shall fall to the ground.

21 And I will " call for p a sword against
him throughout all my mountains, saith the
Lord God : ^ every man's sword shall be
against his brother.

22 And I will 'plead against him with
'pestilence and with blood; and 'I will rain
upon him, and upon his bands, and upon the
many people that are with him, an overflow-
ing rain, and "great hailstones, fire, and

earth, of rams, of lambs, and of f goats, of
bullocks, all of. them ^fatlings of Bashan.

19 And ye shrill eat fat till ye be full, and
drink blood till ye be drunken, of my sacri-
fice wliich I have sacrificed for you.

20 y Thus ye shall be filled at my table with
horses and chariots, ^with mighty men, and
with all men of war, saith the Lord God.

21 ' And I will set my glory among the
heathen, and all the heathen shall see my

{'udgment that I have executed, and •• my
land that I have laid upon them.

22 "^So the house of Israel shall know that
I am the Lord their God from that day and

23 11'' And the heathen shall know that the
house of Israel went into captivity for their
iniquity: because they trespassed against me,
therefore *hid I my face from them, and ""gave
them into the hand of their enemies : so fell
they all by the sword.

24 s According to their uncleanness and
according to their transgressions have I done
unto them, and hid my face from them.

25 Therefore thus saith the Lord God ;
•■Now will I bring again the captivity of
Jacob, and have mercy upon the 'whole
house of Israel, and will be jealous for my
holy name ;

26 ''After that they have borne their
shame, and all their trespasses whereby
they have trespassed against me, when they
'dwelt safely in their land, and none made
them afraid.

27 ""When I have brought them again
from the people, and gathered them out of
their enemies' lands, and " am sanctified in
them in the sight of many nations ;

28 "Then shall they know that I am the
Lord their God, t which caused them to be
led into captivity among the heathen : but
I have gathered them unto their own land,

iid have left hone of them any more there.

29 P Neither will I hide my face any more
from them : for I have "i poured out my Spirit
upon the house of Israel, saith the Lord God.
