1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, pone faciem tuam ad montes Israel et prophetabis ad eos
3 et dices: Montes Israel, audite verbum Domini Dei. Haec dicit Dominus Deus montibus et collibus, voraginibus et vallibus: Ecce ego inducam super vos gladium et destruam excelsa vestra;
4 et demoliar aras vestras, et confringentur delubra vestra, et deiciam interfectos vestros ante idola vestra.
5 Et dabo cadavera filiorum Israel ante faciem simulacrorum vestrorum et dispergam ossa vestra circum aras vestras;
6 in omnibus habitationibus vestris urbes desertae erunt, et excelsa demolientur, ut dissipentur et intereant arae vestrae, et confringantur et cessent idola vestra, et conterantur delubra vestra, et deleantur opera vestra.
7 Et cadet interfectus in medio vestri, et scietis quia ego Dominus.
8 Et relinquam in vobis eos, qui fugerint gladium in gentibus, cum dispersero vos in terris;
9 et recordabuntur mei liberati vestri in gentibus, ad quas captivi ducti sunt, quia contrivi cor eorum fornicans et recedens a me, et oculos eorum fornicantes post idola sua; et displicebunt sibimet super malis, quae fecerunt in universis abominationibus suis,
10 et scient quia ego Dominus non frustra locutus sum, ut facerem eis malum hoc.
11 Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Plaude manu tua et percute pede tuo et dic: Heu ad omnes abominationes malas domus Israel, quia gladio, fame et peste ruituri sunt!
12 Qui longe est, peste morietur; qui autem prope, gladio corruet; et, qui relictus fuerit et obsessus, fame morietur, et complebo indignationem meam in eis.
13 Et scietis quia ego Dominus, cum fuerint interfecti eorum in medio idolorum suorum, in circuitu ararum suarum, in omni colle excelso, in cunctis summitatibus montium et subtus omne lignum nemorosum et subtus universam quercum frondosam, locum ubi obtulerunt tura redolentia universis idolis suis.
14 Et extendam manum meam super eos et faciam terram desolatam et destitutam a deserto usque Rebla in omnibus habitationibus eorum, et scient quia ego Dominus".
King James Version
1 And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,
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 places.
4 And your altars shall be desolate, and your images shall be broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.
5 And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols; and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.
6 In all your dwellingplaces 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 abolished.
7 And the slain shall fall in the midst of you, and ye shall know that I am the LORD.
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.
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 whorish heart, which hath departed from me, and with their eyes, which go a whoring after their idols: and they shall lothe themselves for the evils which they have committed in all their abominations.
10 And they shall know that I am the LORD, and that I have not said in vain that I would do this evil unto them.
11 ¶ Thus saith the Lord GOD; Smite with thine 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.
12 He that is far off shall die of 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.
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, in all the tops of the mountains, and under every green tree, and under every thick oak, the place where they did offer sweet savour to all their idols.
14 So will I stretch out my hand upon them, and make the land desolate, yea, more desolate than the wilderness toward Diblath, in all their habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
