Also, thou son of man, thus saith the Lord GOD unto the land of Israel; An end, the
end is come upon the four corners of the land.
Now is the end come upon thee, and I will send mine anger upon thee, and will judge
thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine abominations.
And mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense
thy ways upon thee, and thine abominations shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall

Thus saith the Lord GOD; An evil, an only evil, behold, is come.
An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; behold, it is come.
The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come,
the day of trouble is near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.
Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee:
and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine

They have blown the trumpet, even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle:
for my wrath is upon all the multitude thereof.
The sword is without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that is in the

But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves
of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.
All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak as water.
They shall also gird themselves with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and
shame shall be upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their

Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they
seek a vision of the prophet; but the law shall perish from the priest, and counsel
