1 Et factum est in anno sexto, in sexto mense, in quinta mensis, ego sedebam in domo mea, et senes Iudae sedebant coram me, et cecidit super me ibi manus Domini Dei,
2 et vidi: et ecce similitudo quasi aspectus viri, ab aspectu lumborum eius et deorsum ignis, et a lumbis eius et sursum quasi aspectus splendoris ut visio electri.
3 Emisit similitudinem manus et apprehendit me in cincinno capitis mei; et elevavit me spiritus inter terram et caelum et adduxit in Ierusalem, in visionibus Dei, iuxta ostium interius, quod respiciebat aquilonem, ubi erat statutum idolum zeli ad provocandam aemulationem.
4 Et ecce ibi gloria Dei Israel secundum visionem, quam videram in campo;
5 et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, leva oculos tuos ad viam aquilonis". Et levavi oculos meos ad viam aquilonis, et ecce ab aquilone portae altaris hoc idolum zeli in introitu.
6 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, putasne vides tu, quid isti faciunt, abominationes magnas, quas domus Israel facit hic, ut procul recedam a sanctuario meo? Et adhuc conversus videbis abominationes maiores".
7 Et duxit me ad ostium atrii, et vidi: et ecce foramen unum in pariete.
8 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, fode parietem"; et cum perfodissem parietem, apparuit ostium unum.
9 Et dixit ad me: "Ingredere et vide abominationes pessimas, quas isti faciunt hic".
10 Et ingressus vidi: et ecce omnis similitudo reptilium et animalium abominatio et universa idola domus Israel depicta erant in pariete in circuitu per totum;
11 et septuaginta viri de senioribus domus Israel, et Iezonias filius Saphan stabat in medio eorum stantium ante picturas, et unusquisque habebat turibulum in manu sua, et vapor nebulae de ture consurgebat.
12 Et dixit ad me: "Certe vides, fili hominis, quae seniores domus Israel faciunt in tenebris, unusquisque in cubiculo simulacri sui; dicunt enim: "Non videt Dominus nos, dereliquit Dominus terram" ".
13 Et dixit ad me: "Adhuc videbis abominationes maiores, quas isti faciunt".
14 Et duxit me ad ostium portae domus Domini, quod respiciebat ad aquilonem, et ecce ibi mulieres sedebant plangentes Thammuz.
15 Et dixit ad me: "Certe vidisti, fili hominis; adhuc videbis abominationes maiores his".
16 Et introduxit me in atrium domus Domini interius, et ecce in ostio templi Domini, inter vestibulum et altare, quasi viginti quinque viri dorsa habentes contra templum Domini et facies ad orientem, et adorabant ad ortum solis.
17 Et dixit ad me: "Certe vidisti, fili hominis; numquid parum est hoc domui Iudae, ut facerent abominationes istas, quas fecerunt hic, quia replentes terram iniquitate iterum irritaverunt me et ecce applicant ramum ad nares suas.
18 Ergo et ego faciam in furore: non parcet oculus meus, nec miserebor et, cum clamaverint ad aures meas voce magna, non exaudiam eos".
King James Version
1 And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell there upon me.
2 Then I beheld, and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber.
3 And he put forth the form of an hand, and took me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up between the earth and the heaven, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh toward the north; where was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.
4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the vision that I saw in the plain.
5 ¶ Then said he unto me, Son of man, lift up thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
6 He said furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest thou what they do? even the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? but turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations.
7 ¶ And he brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold a hole in the wall.
8 Then said he unto me, Son of man, dig now in the wall: and when I had digged in the wall, behold a door.
9 And he said unto me, Go in, and behold the wicked abominations that they do here.
10 So I went in and saw; and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed upon the wall round about.
11 And there stood before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.
12 Then said he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen what the ancients of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say, The LORD seeth us not; the LORD hath forsaken the earth.
13 ¶ He said also unto me, Turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations that they do.
14 Then he brought me to the door of the gate of the LORD'S house which was toward the north; and, behold, there sat women weeping for Tammuz.
15 ¶ Then said he unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? turn thee yet again, and thou shalt see greater abominations than these.
16 And he brought me into the inner court of the LORD'S house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.
17 ¶ Then he said unto me, Hast thou seen this, O son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? for they have filled the land with violence, and have returned to provoke me to anger: and, lo, they put the branch to their nose.
18 Therefore will I also deal in fury: mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: and though they cry in mine ears with a loud voice, yet will I not hear them.
