Isaiah Cross References - Thomson

1 A vision which Esaias son of Amos saw, [which he saw respecting Judea and Jerusalem] in the reign of Ozias, and Joatham and Achaz and Hezekias, who reigned over Judea. 2 Hearken, heaven! and hear earth! what the Lord hath spoken. "I have begotten children and brought them up; and they have rebelled against me. 3 The ox knoweth his owner, and the ass his master's crib; but Israel did not know me. And this people have not regarded me." 4 Ah! sinful nation; people full of sins! vile race! iniquitous children! you have utterly forsaken the Lord; and provoked to wrath the Holy One of Israel. 5 What! must you persisting in iniquity be smitten still more? The whole head is sick, and the whole heart faint: 6 from the feet to the head, there is no soundness therein. Is it not, here a wound, there a bruise, there a putrefying sore? there is no applying poultice, nor oil, nor bandages. 7 Your land is a desert: your cities are burnt with fire. As for your country, before your eyes strangers are devouring it; and it is laid waste, being subdued by foreign tribes. 8 Must the daughter of Sion be left as a shed in a vineyard: and as a lodge in a garden of cucumbers; as a city taken by siege? 9 Had not the Lord of Hosts left us a seed, we should have been as Sodom and made like Gomorra. 10 Hear a word of the Lord, chiefs of Sodom! Attend to the law of God, ye people of Gomorra! 11 "What is the multitude of your sacrifices to me?" saith the Lord: I am cloyed with whole burnt offerings of rams: in the fat of lambs and the blood of bulls and goats I have no delight; 12 nor should you come to appear before me: for who hath required these at your hands? You shall no more be admitted to tread my court. 13 Though you bring fine flour; it is a vain incense: it is an abomination to me. Your new moons and sabbaths and great day I cannot endure: 14 your fasting and cessation from labour; and your new moons and your festivals my soul hateth. You are become loathsome to me; I will no longer remit your sins. 15 When you stretch forth your hands, I will turn mine eyes from you: and though you multiply prayer, I will not hearken to you: for your hands are full of blood. 16 Wash and become clean: remove iniquities from your souls; in my presence, cease from your evil deeds; 17 learn to do good; seek judgment; deliver him who is injured; administer justice to the orphan, and plead the cause of the widow: 18 then come: [let our controversy be brought to issue, saith the Lord] and though your sins be as a purple stain; I will make you white as snow; though they be as a stain of scarlet; I will make you white as wool. 19 If you indeed be willing and will hearken to me, you shall eat the good things of the land: 20 but if you refuse and hearken not to me, the sword shall devour you; for the mouth of the Lord hath spoken these words." 21 How is the faithful city become a harlot? Sion that was full of justice! In it righteousness made its abode; but now murderers. 22 Your silver is not pure: thy vintners mix the wine with water. 23 The chiefs are rebellious; associates of thieves: they love gifts; they seek rewards: to orphans they do not administer justice; and to the cause of widows they do not attend. 24 Therefore thus saith the sovereign Lord of hosts. "Alas for the rulers of Israel; for my wrath against these adversaries shall not abate. On these enemies of mine I will execute judgment: 25 and I will bring my hand over thee, and purify thee with fire. Them who are disobedient I will destroy; and I will take away from thee all transgressors, 26 and establish thy judges as at the first: and thy counsellors as at the beginning: and after these things thou shalt be called The city of Righteousness, the faithful metropolis, Sion. 27 For in the exercise of judgment her captivity shall be saved: and in the exercise of mercy, 28 the lawless and sinful shall be crushed together; and they who have forsaken the Lord shall be utterly destroyed: 29 for they shall be exposed to shame for the idols on which they doted; as they have been for the gardens which they desired. 30 For they shall be like an ilex, which hath shed its leaves; and like a garden which hath no water: 31 and their strength shall be like tow; and their works like sparks of fire: and the lawless and sinful shall be burned up together; and there shall be no extinguisher."

Leviticus 23:1-44

1 Again the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Speak to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them, With respect to the festivals of the Lord, which you shall proclaim holy, set days; these are my festivals. 3 Six days thou shalt perform works, but on the seventh day are sabbaths, a solemn rest dedicated to the Lord, thou shalt not do any work. Sabbaths are for the Lord in all your dwellings. 4 These are the festivals for the Lord; holy, set days, which you shall proclaim in their set times. 5 In the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, between the two evenings, is the passover for the Lord. 6 And on the fifteenth day of this month beginneth the festival of unleavened bread for the Lord. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 7 Now the first day shall be a holy, set day for you. You shall do no sacrificial service, 8 but offer whole burnt offerings to the Lord seven days, and the seventh day shall be a holy set day for you. You shall do no sacrificial service. 9 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 10 Speak to the 10 children of Israel, and thou shalt say unto them, When you are come into the land which I give you, and are about to reap the harvest thereof, you shall bring a sheaf, as the first fruits of your harvest, to the priest, 11 and he shall offer up the sheaf before the Lord, to be accepted for you; On the morrow after the first day, the priest shall offer this up. 12 And on the day when you bring the sheaf, you shall prepare a lamb without blemish of the first year, for a whole burnt offering for the Lord, 13 and for the sacrifice thereof, two tenths of fine flour, made up with oil for the Lord, a smell of fragrance for the Lord; and for the libation thereof, the fourth of an hin of wine. 14 You shall not eat bread, nor parched grains, of the new corn, till this day; until you have offered these gifts to your God. It is an everlasting statute for your generations, in all your dwellings, 15 That from the morrow of these sabbaths; from the day on which you offer up the dedicated sheaf, you shall reckon for yourselves seven whole weeks, 16 even till the morrow after the last week, you shall reckon fifty days, and then offer a sacrifice of new corn to the Lord. 17 You shall bring from your dwelling two loaves, as loaves of dedication. They shall consist of two tenths of fine flour. Being of the first fruits for the Lord, 18 they shall be baked with leaven. And with the loaves you shall present seven lambs of the first year, without blemish, and one young bull from the herd, and two rams without blemish; and they shall be a whole burnt offering for the Lord; and their sacrifices, and their libations, shall be a sacrifice, a smell of fragrance for the Lord. 19 They shall also prepare one kid of the goats for a sin offering, and two lambs of the first year, for a sacrifice of thanksgiving, with the loaves of the first fruits. 20 And the priest shall dedicate these, with the loaves of the first fruits, as a dedication before the Lord, with the two lambs. They shall be dedicated to the Lord; they shall be for the priest who offereth them. 21 And you shall call this day, a set day. It shall be hallowed for you. On it you shall do no sacrificial work. It is an everlasting statute for your generations in all your dwellings. 22 And when you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not make a clean riddance of the harvest of thy field when thou reapest, nor shalt thou gather up the gleanings of thy harvest. Thou shalt leave them for the poor, and for the stranger. I am the Lord your God. 23 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 24 Speak to the children of Israel, and say, In the seventh month, on the first day of the month, there shall be a rest for yon; a memorial of trumpets. 25 It shall be a holy set day for you. You shall not do any sacrificial service, but offer a whole burnt offering to the Lord. 26 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 27 On the tenth day of the seventh month is the day of Atonement. It shall be a holy set day for you; and you shall humble your souls, and offer a whole burnt offering to the Lord. 28 On this day you shall not do any kind of work: for it is the day of Atonement for you, to make atonement for you before the Lord your God. 29 Every soul who shall not humble himself on that day, shall be cut off from among his people. 30 And every person who shall do any work on that day, shall be destroyed from among the people. 31 You shall not do any kind of work. It is an everlasting statute for your generations in all your dwellings. 32 They shall be sabbaths of sabbaths for you, that you may humble your souls. From the ninth of the month, from evening till evening, you shall keep these sabbaths of yours. 33 Moreover the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 34 Speak to the children of Israel, and say, On the fifteenth of this seventh month shall commence the festival of Tabernacles, seven days for the Lord. 35 The first day shall be proclaimed holy. You shall do no sacrificial work; 36 seven days you shall offer whole burnt offerings to the Lord, and the eighth day shall be proclaimed holy for you, and you shall offer whole burnt offerings to the Lord. It is the exit. You shall not do any sacrificial service. 37 These are the festivals for the Lord, which you shall proclaim holy, in order that you may offer homage offerings to the Lord; whole burnt offerings, with their sacrifices and their libations; that allotted for each day on its day, 38 over and above the sabbaths of the Lord, and over and above your gifts, even besides all your vows, and besides your free will offerings, which you may give to the Lord. 39 Now on the fifteenth day of this seventh month, when you have finished the ingathering of the products of the land, you shall begin this festival of seven days for the Lord. On the first day there shall be a rest; and on the eighth day, a rest. 40 And on the first day you shall take the ripe fruit of trees, and branches of palm trees, and bushy boughs of trees and willows, and branches of the willow of the brook, to rejoice before the Lord your God seven days of the year. 41 It shall be an everlasting statute for your generations. In the seventh month you shall celebrate this festival. 42 You shall dwell in booths seven days. All that are Israelites born, shall dwell in booths, 43 that your posterity may see that I caused the children of Israel to dwell in tents when I brought them out of the land of Egypt. I am the Lord your God. 44 And when Moses had mentioned these festivals of the Lord to the Israelites,

Leviticus 26:33

33 And I will scatter you among the nations, and a sword shall overtake and consume you. And your land shall be a waste, and your cities a desolation. 34 And the land shall then enjoy its sabbaths all the time of its desolation. When you shall be in the land of your enemies, the land shall then rest; and the land shall keep those sabbaths,

1 Then the Lord spoke to Moses, saying, 2 Give a charge to the children of Israel, and thou shalt say to them, You shall observe to bring me my gifts, my oblations, my homage offerings for a smell of fragrance at my festivals. 3 Moreover thou shalt say to them, These are the homage offerings which you shall present to the Lord; two lambs, of the first year, with 4 out blemish, every day, for a continual whole burnt offering; 4 the one lamb thou shalt offer in the morning, and the other in the evening; 5 and for a sacrifice of flour, thou shalt offer the tenth of an ephah of fine flour, mixed up with the quarter of an hin of oil. 6 It is the continual whole burnt offering, which was instituted at mount Sina, for a smell of fragrance for the Lord: 7 and for the libation thereof, thou shalt offer, with the first lamb, a quarter of an hin of wine. In the holy place thou shalt pour out as a libation the choicest wine to the Lord. 8 And towards evening thou shalt offer the other lamb, with the like sacrifice, and the like libation; for a smell of fragrance for the Lord. 9 And on the day of the sabbaths, you shall bring two lambs of the first year, without blemish, and two tenths of fine flour mixed up with oil, for a sacrifice, together with a libation, 10 as the sabbath whole burnt offering, for every sabbath, over and above the continual whole burnt offering with its libation. 11 And at the new moons you shall offer a whole burnt offering to the Lord, two young bulls from the herd, one ram, seven lambs, of the first year, without blemish, 12 three tenths of fine flour, mixed up with oil, for each bull, and two tenths of fine flour, mixed up with oil, for the ram, 13 and a tenth of fine flour, mixed up with oil, for every lamb, as a sacrifice for a smell of fragrance; an homage offering for the Lord: 14 and their libation shall be, the half of an hin of wine for each bull; and the third of an hin for the ram; and the fourth of an hin for every lamb. This shall be the whole burnt offering, month after month, for all the months of the year; 15 Also a kid of the goats, for a sin offering. This, with its libation, shall be offered to the Lord, over and above the continual whole burnt offering. 16 And in the first month, on the fourteenth day of the month, shall be the passover to the Lord, 17 and on the fifteenth day of the month shall commence the festival thereof. Seven days you shall eat unleavened bread. 18 Now, this first day shall be solemnly set apart for you. You shall not do any kind of sacrificial service; 19 but you shall bring for whole burnt offerings; for an offering of homage to the Lord, two young bulls from the herd, one ram, seven lambs of the first year. You must see that they are without blemish. 20 And their sacrifice shall be fine flour, mixed up with oil, three tenths for each bull, and two tent! is for the ram, 21 and thou shalt prepare a tenth for every one of the seven lambs; 22 and a kid of the goats for a sin offering, to make atonement for you; 23 over and above the whole burnt offering which is to be made every morning, and which is a continual whole burnt offering. 24 After this manner you shall make daily offerings, during the seven days, as a gift; an offering of homage, for a smell of fragrance, to the Lord: Over and above the continual whole burnt offering, thou shalt offer it with its libation. 25 And the seventh of these days shall be solemnly set apart for you. On it you shall do no sacrificial work. 26 And on the day of new things when you bring for the Lord the new sacrifice of the weeks, there shall be a solemn festival for you. You shall not do any kind of sacrificial service; 27 but you shall bring, as whole burnt offerings, for a smell of fragrance to the Lord, two young bulls from the herd, one ram, seven lambs, of the first year, without blemish, 28 with their sacrifice of fine flour mixed up with oil; three tenths for each bull, and two tenths for the ram, 29 and one tenth for every of the seven lambs;

Deuteronomy 16:1-22

1 Observe the month of New things, and keep the passover to the Lord thy God, because in the month of New things thou didst come out of the land of Egypt, by night. 2 And at the passover thou shalt sacrifice to the Lord thy God, sheep, and kine, in the place which the Lord thy God shall chuse for his name to be there invoked. 3 At it thou shalt not eat leaven. Seven days, at it, thou shalt eat unleavened bread; the bread of affliction, because you came in haste out of Egypt, that you may remember the day of your coming out of the land of Egypt, all the days of your life. 4 No leaven shall be seen in all thy borders for seven days, and none of the flesh of that which you shall sacrifice on the evening of the first day shall be left till the morning. 5 Thou shalt not be at liberty to keep the passover in any of the cities which the Lord thy God giveth thee, 6 but only in the place which the Lord thy God shall chuse, for his name to be there invoked. Thou shalt kill the passover in the evening, at the setting of the sun, in the season thou didst come out of Egypt. 7 And when thou hast cooked, and roasted, and eaten it, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen, in the morning thou mayst return and go home. 8 Six days thou shalt eat unleavened bread; and on the seventh day shall be the Exod; a festival to the Lord thy God. On it thou shalt not do any work, but what is necessary for life. 9 Seven weeks thou shalt number for thyself; from thy first beginning to put the sickle to the harvest thou shalt begin to number the seven weeks. 10 And thou shalt keep the festival of weeks, to the Lord thy God, according to the ability of thy hand; according to what the Lord thy God may have given thee. 11 And thou shalt rejoice before the Lord thy God, thou, and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man servant, and thy maid servant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow who is among you, in the place which the Lord thy God shall chuse for his name to be there invoked. 12 And thou shalt remember that thou wast a servant in the land of Egypt; therefore thou shalt keep, and perform, these commandments. 13 The feast of tabernacles thou shalt keep for thyself seven days. When thou hast gathered in from thy threshing floor, and from thy press, 14 thou shalt rejoice at this thy festival, thou and thy son, and thy daughter, thy man servant, and thy maid servant, and the Levite, and the stranger, and the orphan, and the widow, who is in thy cities. 15 Seven days thou shalt celebrate this festival to the Lord thy God, in the place which the Lord thy God hath chosen for himself. So when the Lord thy God shall bless thee in all thy productions, and in all the works of thy hands, and thou shalt be made glad, 16 every male shall, three times in the year, appear before the Lord thy God, in the place which the Lord shall chuse; at the festival of unleavened bread, and at the festival of weeks, and at the festival of tabernacles. Thou shalt not appear before the Lord thy God empty handed.

Thou shalt not appear before the Lord thy God empty handed. 17 Every one of you shall bring according to the ability of his hand, according to the blessing of the Lord thy God, which he hath given thee. 18 Thou shalt appoint for thyself judges, and promulgators of the law, in the cities which the Lord thy God giveth thee, in every tribe. And they shall administer just judgment to the people. 19 They shall not wrest judgment, nor respect persons, nor shall they receive a gift. For gifts blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous.

Deuteronomy 16:19

19 They shall not wrest judgment, nor respect persons, nor shall they receive a gift. For gifts blind the eyes of the wise, and pervert the words of the righteous. 20 Thou shalt pursue righteously what is right, that you may live, and go in, and possess the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee. 21 Thou shalt not plant a grove for thyself, nor make for thyself a wood near the altar of thy God, 22 nor set up for thyself a pillar: these are things which the Lord thy God hateth.

And when he shall afflict thee in thy cities which he hath given thee;

Deuteronomy 28:63

With regard to myself, behold I have gone out before you from my youth even to this day. 3 Here I am. Bring your complaints against me before the Lord, and before his anointed. Whose ox have I taken? or whose ass have I taken? or whom among you have I oppressed? or whom have I aggrieved? or from whose hand have I taken a bribe, even to a shoe latchet? Witness against me, and I will make you restitution. 4 Thereupon they said to Samuel, Thou hast not injured us; nor tyrannised over us; nor afflicted us; nor taken any thing from the hand of any man. 5 Then Samuel said to the people, The Lord is a witness among you, and his anointed is this day a witness, that you have found nothing in my hand. And they said, He is a witness.

Then Solomon brought Pharao's daughter up out of the city of David to the house which he had built for himself.

And when one spoke in this manner and another in that, 21 there came forth a spirit and stood before the Lord, and said, I will deceive him. 22 And the Lord said to him, How? And he said, I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouth of all his prophets. And he said, Thou shalt deceive him and actually prevail. Go and do so. 23 Now therefore behold the Lord hath put a lying spirit in the mouth of all these prophets of thine; but the Lord hath spoken evils against thee.

32 In the second year of Phakee son of Romelias, king of Israel, Joatham son of Azarias, king of Juda, began to reign.

2 Kings 18:1-20:21

1 Now in the third year of Osea son of Ela king of Israel, Ezekias son of Achaz king of Juda acted as king. 2 He was twenty five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty nine years in Jerusalem, and his mother's name was Abu, a daughter of Zacharias. 3 He did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that David his father had done. 4 He removed the high places and broke in pieces the pillars and destroyed the bowers and the brasen serpent which Moses made. Because in those days the Israelites were burning incense to it, therefore he called it Neesthan. 5 He trusted in the Lord God of Israel, so that there was not after him one like him among the kings of Juda, nor among those who were before him. 6 For he cleaved to the Lord and departed not from following him, and kept all his commandments which he had given in charge to Moses. 7 And the Lord was with him and assisted him in all that he did. And he revolted from the king of Assyria and would not serve him. 8 He smote the Philistines even to Gaza and the border thereof, from the watch tower to the fenced city. 9 Now in the fourth year of Ezekias which was the seventh year of Osea son of Ela king of Israel, Salamanasser king of Assyria came up against Samaria and besieged it, 10 and took it at the end of three years. In the sixth year of Ezekias, which was the ninth of Osea king of Israel, Samaria was taken. 11 And the king of Assyria removed the Samaritans to Assyria, and placed them along the Alae and the Abor, a river of Gozan, and on the mountains of the Medes, 12 because they had not hearkened to the voice of the Lord their God, but transgressed his covenant; and, with regard to all that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded, had neither hearkened to them nor done them. 13 And in the fourteenth of king Ezekias, Sennacherim the king of the Assyrians came up against the fortified cities of Juda, and when he had taken some of them, 14 Ezekias king of Juda sent messengers to the king of Assyria at Lachis, saying, I have done wrong. Depart from me. Whatever thou imposest on me I will bear. Thereupon the king of Assyria imposed on Ezekias king of Juda, three hundred talents of silver and thirty talents of gold. 15 And Ezekias gave him all the silver which was found in the house of the Lord and in the treasury of the king's house. 16 At that time Ezekias cut up the doors of the temple, and the braces which he, Ezekias king of Juda, had overlaid with gold, and gave them to the king of Assyria. 17 Nevertheless the king of Assyria sent Tharthan and Raphis, and Rapsakes of Lachis, to king Ezekias with a great army against Jerusalem. And when they had marched up and arrived at Jerusalem they halted at the conduit of the upper pool, which is by the high way to the fuller's field, 18 and cried to Ezekias. And there went out to him Eliakim son of Chelkias, the steward, and Somnas the secretary, and Joas son of Saphat, the recorder. 19 And Rapsakes said to them, Say, I pray you, to Ezekias, Thus saith the king, the great king of the Assyrians, Of what avail is that confidence on which thou hast relied? 20 Thou saidst; but they were vain words; I have counsel and strength for war. 21 Now therefore on whom dost thou rely that thou shouldst rebel against me? Perhaps thou leanest on that staff; that broken reed; on Egypt; on which if any one lean, it will enter his hand and pierce it.

2 Kings 19:1-20:21

1 And when the king Ezekias heard them he rent his clothes and put on sackcloth and went into the house of the Lord. 2 Then he sent Eliakim the steward, and Somnas the secretary, and the elders of the priests clothed with sackcloth to Esaias the prophet the son of Amos, 3 that they should say to him, Thus saith Ezekias, This is a day of affliction and rebuke. This is indeed a day of fierce indignation; for children are come to the birth and there is not strength to bring forth. 4 Perhaps the Lord thy God will attend to all the words of Rapsakes, whom the Assyrian king his master hath sent to reproach the living God and blaspheme, in the words which the Lord thy God hath heard. Therefore put up a prayer for the remnant which is left. 5 And when the servants of the king Ezekias came to Esaias 6 he said to them, Thus shall you say to your master, Thus saith the Lord, Be not terrified at the words which thou hast heard, with which the servants of the Assyrian king have blasphemed. 7 Behold I will put such a spirit in him and he shall hear such news, that he shall return to his own land. And I will destroy him with the sword in his own land. 8 So Rapsakes returned and found the king warring against Lobna; for he heard that he had removed from Lachis. 9 But when he heard it reported of Tharaka king of the Ethiopians, saying, Behold he is come to fight thee, he retreated and sent messengers to Ezekias saying, 10 Let not thy God on whom thou reliest lead thee astray, saying, Jerusalem shall not be delivered into the hand of the king of the Assyrians. 11 Behold thou hast heard all that the kings of the Assyrians have done to all the countries to destroy them utterly; and shalt thou be delivered? 12 Did the gods of the nations, which my father destroyed, deliver them, namely Gosan and Charran and Raphis and the children of Eden who were at Thaesthin? 13 Where is the king of Aimath and the king of Arphad? And where is the king of Seppharuaim, Ana and Aba? 14 And when Ezekias received the letter from the hand of the messengers and had read it, he went up to the house of the Lord, and spreading it before the Lord 15 said, Lord the God of Israel, who art enthroned on the cherubim, Thou alone art God in all the kingdoms of the earth. Thou hast made the heaven and the earth. 16 Incline, Lord, thine ear and hear! Open, Lord, thine eyes and see and hear the words of Sennacherim, which he hath sent to reproach the living God. 17 Of a truth, Lord, the kings of Assyria have laid waste these nations and committed to the flames their gods. 18 Because they are not gods, but the works of men's hands, wood and stone; therefore they destroyed them. 19 But now, Lord our God, save us out of his hand, and all the kingdoms of the earth will know that thou the Lord alone art God. 20 Thereupon Esaias son of Amos sent to Ezekias saying, Thus saith the Lord the God of hosts, the God of Israel, I have heard the prayer which thou hast made to me concerning Sennacherim king of Assyria. 21 This is the word which the Lord hath spoken against him, The virgin daughter of Zion hath despised thee and laughed thee to scorn. At thee the daughter of Jerusalem hath shaken her head.

2 Kings 20:1-21

1 In those days Ezekias was sick unto death, and Esaias son of Amos the prophet went to him and said to him, Thus saith the Lord, Give a charge to thy household. Thou art at the point of death and shalt not live. 2 Upon this Ezekias turned his face to the wall, and prayed to the Lord saying, 3 Lord, remember I beseech thee, how I have walked before thee in truth and with a perfect heart, and have done what is good in thy sight. And Ezekias wept sore. 4 Now Esaias was in the middle court, and a word of the Lord came to him saying, 5 Return and say to Ezekias the leader of my people, Thus saith the Lord the God of thy father David, I have heard thy prayer. I have seen thy tears. Behold I will heal thee. On the third day thou shalt go up to the house of the Lord. 6 And I will add to thy days, fifteen years, and deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria, and I will defend this city, for my own sake, and for the sake of my servant David. 7 And when he said, Let them take a fig cake and lay it on the boil, and he will recover, 8 Ezekias said to Esaias, What is the sign that the Lord will heal me, and that I shall go up to the house of the Lord on the third day? 9 To which Esaias replied, This is the sign from the Lord, that the Lord will perform the word which he hath spoken, The shadow shall advance ten steps, or go back ten steps. 10 And Ezekias said, It is an easy matter for the shadow to decline ten steps. No. Let the shadow return upon the steps, ten steps backwards. 11 Then Esaias the prophet cried to the Lord, and the shadow returned on the steps, ten steps backward. 12 On that occasion Marodoch Baladan son of Baladan king of Babylon, sent a letter and presents to Ezekias, because he heard that Ezekias had been sick. 13 At this Ezekias was rejoiced, and shewed the messengers all the house of Nechotha; the silver and the gold, the spices and the precious oil, and the house of the vessels, and all that was in his treasuries. There was not a thing in his house, or within his power which he did not shew them. 14 Whereupon Esaias the prophet went to king Ezekias, and said to him, What have these men said, and whence are they come to thee? To which Ezekias replied, They are come to me from a far distant country; from Babylon. 15 Then he said, What have they seen in thy house? And he said, They have seen all that are in my house. There is not a thing in my house, or in my treasuries which I have not shewn them. 16 Then Esaias said to Ezekias, Hear a word of the Lord. 17 Behold the days are corning, when all that are in thy house, and all that thy fathers have been treasuring up even to this day, shall be carried to Babylon. Not a word shall fail which the Lord hath spoken. 18 And as for thy sons who shall spring from thee, whom thou shalt beget, he will take them and they shall be eunuchs in the house of the king of Babylon. 19 And Ezekias said to Esaias, Good is that word which the Lord spoke; There shall be peace in my days. 20 Now the rest of the acts of Ezekias and all his power and all that he did, the pool and the aqueduct to bring water into the city, are they not written in the book of the journal of the kings of Juda? 21 And Ezekias slept with his fathers, and Manasses his son reigned in his stead.

1 Chronicles 23:31

31 and to have charge of all the offerings of homage made to the Lord, on the sabbaths and at the new moons, and at the festivals according to the number, and according to the rule prescribed for them, continually for the Lord.

1 Chronicles 28:9

9 And now, Solomon, my son, know thou the God of thy fathers, and serve him with a perfect heart and a willing mind; for the Lord searcheth all hearts and knoweth every thought. If thou seek him, he will be found by thee; but if thou forsake him, he will at last forsake thee.

2 Chronicles 6:28-29

28 If there be famine in the land, if there be pestilence, blasting or mildew; or if there be locusts of any kind; or if their enemy before their gates afflict them; whatever the stroke, whatever the affliction may be, and in consequence thereof, 29 whatever may be the prayer and whatever the supplication which may be made by any man, or by all thy people Israel; when a man shall know his own sore, or his own affliction, and shall spread forth his hands towards this house;

2 Chronicles 19:9

9 And he gave them a charge, saying, Thus shall you act, in the fear of the Lord, with truth and with an upright heart;

2 Chronicles 24:17-21

17 And after the death of Jodae the chiefs of Juda came and paid homage to the king; and the king hearkened to them. 18 And they forsook the house of the Lord God of their fathers, and served the Astartes and the idols, and there was wrath against Juda and against Jerusalem at that time. 19 When he had sent prophets to them to turn them to the Lord, and they would not hearken; when he had testified against them and they would not obey; 20 then the Spirit of God came upon Azarias the priest, the son of Jodae, and he stood above the people and said, Thus saith the Lord, Why do you transgress the commandments of the Lord? You cannot prosper. Because you have forsaken the Lord, therefore he will forsake you. 21 Upon this they fell upon him and stoned him by the command of the king, in the court of the house of the Lord.

2 Chronicles 26:1-32:33

1 And all the people of the country took Ozias when he was sixteen years old, and made him king in the room of his father Amasias. 2 He had rebuilt Ailath and restored it to Juda, after the king slept with his fathers. 3 Ozias was sixteen years old when be began to reign, and he reigned fifty two years in Jerusalem, and his mother's name was Jechelia, of Jerusalem. 4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amasias had done; 5 and he continued to seek the Lord all the days of Zacharias, who instructed him in the fear of the Lord. In his days indeed he sought the Lord, and the Lord prospered him. 6 And he went out and warred against the Philistines, and demolished the walls of Geth, and the walls of Jabner, and the walls of Azotus, and rebuilt the cities of Azotus, and among the Philistines. 7 And the Lord strengthened him against the Philistines, and against the Arabs, who dwelt in Petra, and against the Minaians. 8 So that the Minaians gave gifts to Ozias; for his fame reached even to the entrance of Egypt; for he was very powerful. 9 And Ozias built towers in Jerusalem; that over the gate of the corner, and that over the gate of the valley, and those on the corners. And when he had fortified it, 10 he built towers in the wilderness, and dug many wells, for he bad much cattle at Sephale, and in the plains, and vine dressers in the hilly country, and on Karmel, for he was fond of husbandry. 11 Moreover Ozias had an army of fighting men, which went out in array for battle, and came in, in array, to be numbered. And they were numbered by Jeiel the scribe and Maasias the judge, under the direction of Ananias the king's lieutenant. 12 The whole number of the chiefs, the officers of the army, was two thousand six hundred; 13 and the army of fighting men with them was three hundred and seven thousand five hundred. These were trained for battle to assist the king against enemies. 14 And Ozias provided for them; for all this army, shields and spears, and helmets, and breast plates, and bows, and slings to cast stones. 15 And he made in Jerusalem machines, contrived with great art, to be placed in the towers and at the corners, for shooting darts and throwing huge stones. And the fame of his preparations was spread far and wide, for he was wonderfully assisted until he became exceeding strong. 16 But when he became strong his heart was elated to his destruction; for he trespassed against the Lord his God and went into the temple of the Lord to burn incense on the altar of incense. 17 And Azarias the priest went in after him and with him eighty priests of the Lord, valiant men. 18 And they withstood king Ozias and said to him, it doth not belong to thee, Ozias, to burn incense to the Lord; but only to the priests the sons of Aaron who are consecrated to burn incense. Go out of the sanctuary, for thou hast revolted from the Lord, and this will not be for honour to thee from the Lord God. 19 At this Ozias was inflamed with wrath, and had in his hand the censer to burn incense in the temple. But when his anger kindled against the priests, the leprosy broke out on his forehead, before the priests, in the house of the Lord, at the altar of incense. 20 And when Azarias the chief priest, with the other priests, turned towards him, behold he was leprous on the forehead, so they hurried him out thence. He indeed himself hasted to go out, because the Lord had convicted him. 21 So Ozias the king was a leper to the day of his death, and as a leper, dwelt in the house of Apphusoth; for he was cut off from the house of the Lord, and Joatham, his son, was over the kingdom, administering justice to the people of the land. 22 Now the rest of the acts of Ozias, the first and the last, are written by Jessias the prophet. 23 And when Ozias slept with his fathers, they buried him in the field of the burying place of the kings; for they said he is a leper. And Joatham his son, reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles 27:1-32:33

1 Joatham was twenty five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Jerusa. She was a daughter of Sadok. 2 And he did that which was right in| the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Ozias had done; but he did not go into the temple of the Lord. Though the people were still corrupt, 3 he built the high gate of the house of the Lord; and on the wall Opel he built much. 4 On Mount Juda and in the forest, he also built castles and towers. 5 He fought the king of the Ammonites and prevailed against him; so that the Ammonites gave him yearly, a hundred talents of silver and ten thousand cores of wheat, and ten thousand of barley. These the king of the Ammonites brought him yearly, during the first, second and third year. 6 Joatham prevailed because he prepared his ways before the Lord his God. 7 Now the rest of the acts of Joatham, and his wars and his doings, behold they are written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 8 [Omitted] 9 And Joatham slept with his fathers, and was buried in the city of David, and Achaz his son reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles 28:1-32:33

1 Achaz was twenty years old when he began to reign, and he reigned sixteen years in Jerusalem, and did not do what was right in the sight of the Lord, like his father David, 2 but walked in the ways of the kings of Israel, and made graven images; 3 and for their idols in the land of Benennom he actually caused his children to pass through fire, according to the abominable acts of those nations which the Lord had rooted out from before the Israelites. 4 He burned incense also on the high places, and on the tops of houses and under every shady tree. 5 So the Lord his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria, who smote him, and took many of them captives, and carried them to Damascus. He delivered him also into the hands of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter.

2 Chronicles 28:5

5 So the Lord his God delivered him into the hand of the king of Syria, who smote him, and took many of them captives, and carried them to Damascus. He delivered him also into the hands of the king of Israel, who smote him with a great slaughter. 6 Indeed Phakee, the son of Romelias, king of Israel, slew of Juda in one day, a hundred and twenty chiliads of the men mighty in power, because they had forsaken the Lord, the God of their fathers. 7 Zechri also, the chieftain of Ephraim, slew Maasias the king's son, and Ezrikan, the leader of his house, and Elkana, the lieutenant of the king. 8 And the Israelites carried away captive, of their brethren, three hundred chiliads, including married women, sons and daughters. And they took from them much spoil. But as they were carrying the spoils to Samaria, 9 there was there a prophet of the Lord, whose name was Oded, who went out to meet the army coming to Samaria, and said to them, Behold the anger of the Lord God of your fathers is against Juda, and he hath delivered them into your hands, and you have slain them with a rage which hath reached up to heaven. 10 And now you purpose to keep the children of Juda and Jerusalem, for men slaves and women slaves! Behold am not I with you to testify to the Lord your God? 11 Now therefore hearken to me, and send back those captives whom you have taken of your brethren; for the anger of the Lord is on you. 12 Upon this there arose certain chiefs of the Ephraimites, namely, Oudeias the son of Joanas, and Barachias the son of Mosolamoth, and Ezekias the son of Sellem, and Amasias the son of Eldai, against them who came from the war, 13 and said to them, You shall not bring these captives here to us, for that would be to bring your guilt on us. Because you have sinned against the Lord, do you mean to lay it on us, to add to our sins and to heighten our folly, because our sins are many, and the fervent anger of the Lord is hanging over Israel? 14 Thereupon the warriors left the captives and the spoils before the chiefs and the whole congregation. 15 And the chiefs above mentioned arose and took the captives, and out of the spoils cloathed all who were naked. And when they had cloathed them and shod them, and had given them something to eat and to anoint themselves, they took up on asses all who were weak, and carried them to Jericho, the city of palm trees, to their brethren, and then returned to Samaria. 16 At that time king Achaz sent to the king of Assur for assistance,

2 Chronicles 28:16-21

16 At that time king Achaz sent to the king of Assur for assistance, 17 because the Idumeans had invaded and smitten Juda and carried off captives.

2 Chronicles 28:17-21

17 because the Idumeans had invaded and smitten Juda and carried off captives. 18 The Philistines also had fallen upon the cities of the plain and in the southern border of Juda, and had taken Baithsamus. But after he had given the king the treasures in the house of the Lord, and the treasures in the house of the king, and the chiefs, they took Ailon and Galero, and Socho, and the villages thereof, and Thamna and the villages thereof, and Gamzo and the villages thereof, and settled there:

2 Chronicles 28:18-21

18 The Philistines also had fallen upon the cities of the plain and in the southern border of Juda, and had taken Baithsamus. But after he had given the king the treasures in the house of the Lord, and the treasures in the house of the king, and the chiefs, they took Ailon and Galero, and Socho, and the villages thereof, and Thamna and the villages thereof, and Gamzo and the villages thereof, and settled there: 19 Because the Lord humbled Juda on the account of Achaz, king of Juda, because he had greatly apostatised from the Lord,

2 Chronicles 28:19-21

19 Because the Lord humbled Juda on the account of Achaz, king of Juda, because he had greatly apostatised from the Lord, 20 therefore Thalgathphallasar came upon him and afflicted him.

2 Chronicles 28:20-21

20 therefore Thalgathphallasar came upon him and afflicted him. 21 Though Achaz took the treasures in the house of the Lord, and the treasures in the house of the king, and the chiefs, and gave them to the king of Assur, yet he was of no service to him,

2 Chronicles 28:21-21

21 Though Achaz took the treasures in the house of the Lord, and the treasures in the house of the king, and the chiefs, and gave them to the king of Assur, yet he was of no service to him, 22 but only added to his distress, and contributed to his apostacy from the Lord. For king Achaz said,

2 Chronicles 28:22

22 but only added to his distress, and contributed to his apostacy from the Lord. For king Achaz said, 23 I will seek the gods of Damascus who smite me. Because, said he, the gods of the king of Syria strengthen them, therefore I will sacrifice to them and they will help me. But they were the ruin of him and of all Israel. 24 Now when Achaz had taken away the vessels of the house of the Lord, and chopped them to pieces, he shut up the doors of the house of the Lord, and made himself altars in every corner of Jerusalem, 25 and erected high places in every city of Juda, to burn incense to strange gods. So they provoked to wrath the Lord the God of their fathers. 26 Now the rest of his acts and his doings, first and last, behold they are written in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 27 And when Achaz slept with his fathers, he was buried in the city of David, but they did not carry him to the tombs of the kings of Israel. And Ezekias his son, reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles 29:1-32:33

1 Ezekias was twenty five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty nine years in Jerusalem; and his mother's name was Abia. She was a daughter of Zacharias. 2 He did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father David had done. 3 Accordingly when he was settled in his kingdom, in the first month he opened the doors of the house of the Lord and repaired them. 4 Then he brought in the priests and the Levites, and having placed them on the east side, 5 he said to them, Hearken, ye Levites, sanctify now yourselves, and hallow the house of the Lord God of your fathers, and remove the uncleanness out of the Holies. 6 Because our fathers apostatised, and did evil in the sight of the Lord our God, and forsook him, and turned away their face from the tabernacle of the Lord, and hardened their neck, 7 and shut the doors of the temple and extinguished the lamps, and did not burn incense, nor offer whole burnt offerings in this holy place, to the God of Israel; 8 therefore the Lord hath been provoked to wrath against Juda and Jerusalem, and hath made them an astonishment and a desolation, and an object of pity, as you see with your eyes. 9 For behold your fathers have been smitten with the sword, and your sons and your daughters and your wives, are in captivity, in a strange land, as is now the case. 10 In this situation of affairs, I have it now at heart to enter into a covenant with the Lord God of Israel, that he may turn away his fierce anger from us. 11 Now therefore be not backward, seeing the Lord hath made choice of you to stand before him, to minister, and to be continually employed in his service, and in offering incense. 12 Thereupon these Levites arose, namely, Maath, the son of Amasi, and Joel, the son of Azarias of the Kaathites; and of the Merarites, Kis, the son of Abdi, and Azarias, the son of Ilaelel; and of the Gersonites, Jodad, the son of Zemmath, and Joadam, who were descendants of Joacha; 13 and of the Elisaphanites, Zambri and Jeiel; and of the Asaphites, Zacharias and Matthanias; 14 and of the Aimonites, Jeiel and Semei; and of the Idithunites, Samaias and Oziel; 15 and having assembled their brethren, they purified themselves according to the king's command, in the manner prescribed by the Lord, that they might purify the house of the Lord. 16 And the priests went into the inner part of the house of the Lord to purify it, and threw out all the filth, found in the house of the Lord, into the court of the Lord's house; and the Levites took it up and threw it out into the brook Kedron. 17 On the first day of the first month, at the new moon, they began to purify. And on the eighth day of the month, they came to the temple of the Lord. And having purified the house of the Lord in eight days, and completely finished on the thirteenth of the first month, 18 they went to king Ezekias, and said, We have purified all that are in the house of the Lord, the altar of whole burnt offerings, with the utensils thereof, and the table for the presence loaves, with its utensils, and have prepared and hallowed 19 all the utensils which king Achaz polluted in his reign, during his apostasy. Behold they are before the altar of the Lord: 20 Thereupon king Ezekias arose early in the morning, and having assembled the chiefs of the city, he went up to the house of the Lord, 21 and offered up seven young bulls, seven rams, seven lambs, seven kids of the goats, for a sin offering for the kingdom and for the holies, and for Israel. And he ordered the priests, the sons of Aaron, to offer them upon the altar of the Lord. 22 So when they slew the young bulls, the priests received the blood and poured it against the altar; and when they slew the rams, they poured the blood against the altar; and when they slew the lambs they poured the blood around the altar. 23 Then they brought forward the goats, for a sin offering, before the king and the congregation; and they laid their hands on them; 24 and the priests slew them. And when they made atonement with their blood against the altar, they made it for all Israel, because the king said, The whole burnt offerings, and the sin offerings are for all Israel. 25 Now he had stationed the Levites in the house of the Lord with cymbals and with nablas and kinyras, according to the command of David the king, and of Gad the king's seer, and of Nathan the prophet. For the institution was ordained at the command of the Lord, by the ministry of prophets. 26 So the Levites stood with the musical instruments of David, and the priests with the trumpets. 27 And when Ezekias gave orders to carry up the whole burnt offering on the altar, and they began to carry it up, the musicians began the song of praise to the Lord, and the trumpets sounded in concert with the musical instruments of David king of Israel, 28 and all the congregation worshipped. And the musicians continued singing, and the trumpets sounding until the whole burnt offering was finished. 29 And when they who carried it up, had completely finished, the king, and all present, bowed down. And when they had worshipped, 30 Ezekias the king, and the chiefs, ordered the Levites to praise the Lord, in the words of David, and of Asaph the prophet. And when they had sung praises with gladness, they fell on their faces and worshipped. 31 Then Ezekias addressing the people, said, As you have now filled your hands for the Lord, present and bring the sacrifices of thanksgiving for the household of the Lord. Thereupon the congregation brought up sacrifices and thank offerings for the household of the Lord, and every one liberally disposed brought whole burnt offerings. 32 And the number for the whole burnt offerings, which the congregation offered, was seventy young bulls, a hundred rams, two hundred lambs. All these were for a whole burnt offering to the Lord. 33 And there were hallowed six hundred young bulls and three thousand sheep.

2 Chronicles 30:1-32:33

1 Then Ezekias sent to all Israel and Juda, and wrote letters to Ephraim and Manasses, to come to the house of the Lord at Jerusalem, to celebrate the passover to the Lord God of Israel. 2 Now the king, and the chiefs, and all the congregation at Jerusalem, had come to a determination to keep the passover in the second month; 3 for they could not keep it at that time, because a sufficient number of priests was not purified, nor were the people assembled at Jerusalem. 4 And as this was agreed on by the king and the whole congregation, 5 therefore they determined to make proclamation, throughout all Israel, from Bersabee to Dan, that they might come and keep the passover, to the Lord God of Israel, at Jerusalem, because a multitude had not done it according to the scripture. 6 So the expresses went with letters from the king, and the chiefs, to all Israel and Juda, according to the decree of the king, saying, Children of Israel, return to the Lord God of Abraham and Isaak and Israel, and bring back the remnant who have escaped from the hand of the king of Assur. 7 And be not like your fathers and your brethren, who apostatised from the Lord God of their fathers, and whom he delivered up to desolation, as you yourselves see. 8 Now therefore be not stubborn as your fathers were. Give glory to the Lord God, and come to his sanctuary, which he hath hallowed forever, and serve the Lord your God, and he will turn away his fierce indignation from you. 9 For by your turning to the Lord, your brethren and your children will find compassion in the sight of all those who have captivated them; and he will bring them back to this land. For the Lord our God is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from us, if we return to him. 10 But while the expresses were passing from city to city, through mount Ephraim, and Manasses, till they came to Zabulon, they were treated as deriders and mockers. 11 But the men of Aser, and some of Manasses and Zabulon were humbled, and came to Jerusalem, and to Juda. 12 Now to these the hand of the Lord had given one heart to come and do what the king and the chiefs had commanded by a word of the Lord. 13 So there assembled at Jerusalem much people to keep the festival of unleavened bread in the second month; a very great congregation. 14 And after they had arisen, and demolished the altars which were in Jerusalem, and torn to pieces all on which they had burned incense to vanities, and thrown them into the brook Kedron, 15 they killed the paschal lamb on the fourteenth of the second month. And as the priests and the Levites were humbled, and had purified themselves, they offered whole burnt offerings in the house of the Lord, 16 and stood in their station according to the disposition made of them by the command of Moses, the man of God; and the priests received the blood from the hands of the Levites. 17 Because there were many of the congregation who were not purified, therefore the Levites had it in charge to kill the paschal lamb, for every one who had not been able to purify himself to the Lord. 18 And because most of the people from Ephraim, and Manasses, and Issachar, and Zabulon, had not purified themselves, but ate the passover contrary to the scripture, therefore Ezekias prayed for them on this account and said, The good Lord make atonement for every heart 19 which hath directed its course to seek the Lord the God of their fathers, although not according to the purification of the sanctuary. 20 And the Lord hearkened to Ezekias, and healed the people. 21 So the Israelites who were at Jerusalem, kept the festival of unleavened bread seven days, with great joy, joining in the hymns of praise to the Lord, which the priests and the Levites performed day by day to the Lord, on musical instruments. 22 And when Ezekias had spoken comfortably to the Levites, and them whose understanding was well disposed to the Lord, and they had finished the festival of unleavened bread, which lasted seven days, offering sacrifices of thanksgiving, and singing praises to the Lord God of their fathers; 23 the congregation took counsel together to keep other seven days, and kept other seven days with gladness. 24 For Ezekias, in behalf of Juda, set apart for the congregation, a thousand beeves, and seven thousand sheep; and the chiefs, in behalf of the people, set apart a thousand beeves, and ten thousand sheep; and the dedications of the priests were abundant. 25 So the whole congregation, the priests and the Levites, and all the congregation of Juda, and all who were in Jerusalem, and the proselytes who came from Israel, and the inhabitants of Judea were filled with joy. 26 And the joy in Jerusalem was great. From the days of Solomon son of David, king of Israel, there had not been such a festival in Jerusalem. 27 Then the priests, the Levites arose and blessed the people, and their voice was heard, and their prayer reached his holy was heard, and their prayer reached his holy habitation, even heaven.

2 Chronicles 31:1-32:33

1 And when all this was finished, all Israel who were present went out through the cities of Juda, and broke in pieces the pillars, and cut down the arbours, and demolished the high places, and the mounts, throughout all Judea and Benjamin, and out of all Ephraim and Manasses, till they were utterly destroyed. Then all Israel returned, every one to his possession and to their cities. 2 And Ezekias re-established the courses of the priests, and of the Levites and the courses of each individual among the priests and the Levites, "according to his particular service for the burnt offerings, and for the sacrifices of thanksgiving, and to praise and give thanks, and to attend at the gates in the courts of the house of the Lord. 3 And the king assigned a part of his substance for the morning and evening whole burnt offerings, and for the whole burnt offerings on the sabbaths, and at the new moons, and at the festivals prescribed in the law of the Lord. 4 And the people who dwelt in Jerusalem were ordered to give the portion which belonged to the priests and the Levites, that they might be enabled to attend to the service of the house of the Lord. 5 And soon as he published the order, Israel brought, in abundance, dedications of corn and wine, and oil and honey. Both the children of Israel and of Juda, brought abundantly the productions of the field, and all the tythes. 6 And they who dwelt in the cities of Juda brought the tythe of cattle and sheep, and the tythe of goats, and dedicated them to the Lord their God. And what they brought was stored up in heaps. 7 The heaping was begun in the third month and finished in the seventh. 8 And when Ezekias came with the chiefs, and saw the heaps, they blessed the Lord and his people Israel. 9 Then Ezekias questioned the priests and the Levites, touching the heaps; 10 and Azarias the priest, the head of the house of Sadok, answered him and said, From the time the dedications began to be brought to the house of the Lord, we have eaten and drunk, and left in great abundance. Because the Lord hath blessed his people, therefore we have this great superabundance left. 11 Thereupon Ezekias ordered them to prepare store houses for the house of the Lord. And when they had prepared them, 12 they stored up therein the dedications and the tythes for a common stock. And over them Chonenias the Levite, was overseer, and his brother Semei was his deputy. 13 And Jeiel and Ozias, and Naeth and Asuel, and Jerimoth and Jozabad, and Eliel and Samachia, and Maath and Banaias, with his sons, were appointed store keepers, by Chonenias and his brother Semei, as Ezekias the king and Azarias the ruler of the house of the Lord commanded 14 And Kore, the son of Jemna the Levite, the keeper of the eastern gate, was over the free will offerings, to distribute by the agency of Edom, the oblations to the Lord, and the most holy things. 15 And Benjamin and Jesus, and Semei and Amarias, and Sechonias, were, by the agency of trusty priests, to distribute to their brethren, according to their courses, both to great and small, excepting infants, 16 to every male from three years old and upwards; to every one who went into the house of the Lord, a stated portion every day for the service in the courses of their appointment; 17 this being the enrollment of the priests according to their genealogy: but to the Levites, who in their courses were enrolled from twenty years old and upwards, 18 distribution was to be made to the whole multitude, including infants, both male and female, because they had faithfully purified the sanctuary. 19 And of the Aaronites, who officiated as priests, there were some men of their cities, expressly nominated in every city, to distribute a portion to every male among the priests, and to every one numbered among the Levites. 20 Thus did Ezekias through all Juda, and he did what was right in the sight of the Lord his God. 21 And in every work which he undertook in the service of the house of the Lord, and in the law and in the statutes, he sought his God with his whole heart, and did it and prospered.

2 Chronicles 32:1-33

1 Now after these acts and this faithfulness Sennacherim king of the Assyrians came; He came against Juda and encamped against the walled cities and ordered them to be taken first. 2 And when Ezekias saw that Sennacherim was come and that it was his purpose to attack Jerusalem 3 he consulted with his elders, and the mighty men, about stopping up 4 the waters of the wells, which were without the city. 4 And as they encouraged him he assembled much people, and stopped up the waters of the wells, and the brook which ran through the city with an intent that the king of Assyria, might not come and find much water, and be strengthened. 5 Ezekias also took courage and rebuilt all the wall which had been demolished, and the towers, and another outwork, and strengthened the fortifications, of the city of David, and provided many arms, 6 and appointed military officers over the people; and having assembled them before him in the street of the valley gate, he spoke affectionately to them, and said, 7 Take courage and behave like men, and be not terrified nor dismayed, because of the king of Assur, and because of all the multitude with him; for there are more with us than with him. 8 With him are arms of flesh; but with us is the Lord our God to save, and to fight our battle. So the people were encouraged by the words of Ezekias king of Juda. 9 After this Sennacherim, king of the Assyrians, sent his servants against Jerusalem. While he himself with his main army lay before Lachis, he sent to Ezekias king of Juda and to all the Jews in Jerusalem saying, 10 Thus saith Sennacherim king of the Assyrians, On what do you rely, that you stand a siege in Jerusalem? 11 Doth not Ezekias deceive you, that he may deliver you up to death, and to famine, and to thirst by saying, The Lord our God will save us out of the hand of the king of Assur? 12 Hath not this same Ezekias demolished his altars, and his high places, and given orders to Juda, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, You shall worship before this altar, and upon it you shall burn incense? 13 Will you not consider what I and my fathers have done to all the tribes of these regions? Have the gods of the nations of all this land, been able to save their people out of my hand? 14 Who is this of yours among all the gods of these nations which my father destroyed, who were not able to save their people out of my hand, that he should be able to save you out of my hand? 15 Now therefore let not Ezekias deceive you, nor cause you to trust in this manner. Do not believe him. For as there is no god of any nation or kingdom who is able to save his people out of my hand, or hath been able to save out of the hand of my fathers, therefore your God cannot save you out of my hand. 16 And besides what his servants spoke against the Lord God, and against his servant Ezekias, 17 he wrote a letter to reproach the Lord God of Israel, and spoke of him saying, As the gods of the nations of the earth have not delivered their peoples out of my hand, so neither can the God of Ezekias deliver his people out of my hand. 18 Moreover he cried with a loud voice, in the Jewish language to the people of Jerusalem, who were on the walls that he would assist them, in order to induce them to seize the city. 19 And he spoke against the God of Jerusalem, as against the gods of the peoples of the earth, which are the works of men's hands. 20 But when Ezekias the king, and Esaias son of Amos the prophet addressed a prayer concerning these things, and cried to heaven, 21 the Lord sent an angel who destroyed every mighty man, and warrior, including chief and general, in the camp of the king of Assur. So he returned with shame to his own land, and went to the house of his god, and some of them who sprang from his loins slew him with the sword. 22 And when the Lord had saved Ezekias, and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, out of the hands of Sennacherim, king of Assur, and out of the hand of all men, and had given them rest all around, 23 many brought gifts for the Lord to Jerusalem, and presents to Ezekias king of Juda. And he was thenceforth magnified in the eyes of all the nations. 24 In those days Ezekias was sick unto death, and he prayed to the Lord, who hearkened to him and gave him a sign. 25 But Ezekias did not make a suitable return for the favour conferred on him, but his heart was lifted up, so there was wrath against him, and against Juda and Jerusalem. 26 Thereupon Ezekias humbled himself for the pride of his heart, both he and the inhabitants of Jerusalem, so the wrath of the Lord did not come upon them, during the days of Ezekias. 27 Now Ezekias had riches and exceeding great glory, and he amassed for himself treasures of silver and gold and precious stones; 28 and he had store houses for spiceries, and places for depositing arms and costly utensils; and cities for storing corn, wine, and oil; and towns and stalls for all sorts of cattle; and cots for his flocks; 29 and cities which he built for himself; and a vast multitude of flocks and herds; for the Lord gave him substance in great abundance. 30 It was Ezekias who stopped up the upper course of the waters of Geion, and directed them under ground to the south west of the city of David. And he was prospered in all his works. 31 But in his transactions with the ambassadors from the chiefs of Babylon, who were sent to him to make inquiry touching the miracle which had been done in the land, the Lord left him to himself in order to try him, to know all that were in his heart. 32 Now the rest of the acts of Ezekias and his goodness, behold they are written in the prophesy of the prophet Esaias son of Amos, and in the book of the kings of Juda and Israel. 33 When Ezekias slept with his fathers they buried him in the uppermost of the tombs of the sons of David, and all Juda and the inhabitants of Jerusalem paid him distinguished honours at his death: and Manasses his son reigned in his stead.

2 Chronicles 36:14

14 Now all the nobles of Juda, and the priests, and the people of the land abounded in the commission of the wicked abominations of the Gentiles, and had polluted the house of the Lord in Jerusalem. 15 And the Lord the God of their fathers had sent to them by the ministry of his prophets, rising early, and sending his messengers, because he compassionated his people and his sanctuary. 16 But they continued to deride his messengers, and to despise his words, and insult his prophets, until the wrath of the Lord ascended against his people; until there was no remedy.

A stop is put to all the joy of the land; all the joy of the land is gone. 12 The cities will be left desolate, and the houses being forsaken will be destroyed. 13 All this shall come to pass in this land, in the midst of the nations. As when one shall shake an olive tree, so shall they be shaken: and when the vintage is over

Isaiah 30:11-12

11 and turn us from this way, and take from us this path, and take from us the oracle of Israel." 12 Therefore thus saith the Holy One of Israel, because you have disbelieved these words and placed your hopes on a lie: and because thou hast murmured, and been confident in this matter; 13 therefore this sin shall be to you like the tottering wall of a fortified city, which hath been taken by surprise; the fall of which is instantaneous.

Isaiah 30:15

15 Thus saith the Lord, Lord. The Holy One of Israel, when thou shalt return sighing, then thou shalt be saved, and thou shalt know in what a situation thou wast, when thou didst trust in these vanities. Your strength was vain, yet you would not hearken,

Isaiah 57:5

5 invoking idols under shady trees, slaying your children in the valleys among the rocks? 6 This shall be thy portion; this thy lot; as thou hast poured out libations to them and to them offered up sacrifices, shall I not for these things be incensed? 7 On a high and lofty mountain thou hast made thy bed, and caused thy sacrifice to ascend thither; 8 and behind the posts of thy doors thou hast set up thy memorial. Didst thou think, that, if thou departedst from me, thou shouldst have something more? Thou hast loved them who lay with thee 9 and multiplied thy fornication with them, and hast done it with many who are far from thee; and hast sent ambassadors beyond thy borders; and humbled thyself even to Hades;

Isaiah 63:9-10

9 It was not an ambassador nor a messenger; but he himself saved them. Through his love and his indulgence to them, he himself redeemed them and took them up, and exalted them all the days of old. 10 But they rebelled and provoked his holy spirit; so he became their enemy. He fought against them;

Isaiah 65:2

2 I stretched out my hands all the day long to a disobedient and gainsaying people, who were walking not in a good way, but following their own sins. 3 This people are provoking me continually to my face. They will sacrifice in the gardens and burn incense on the tiles, to demons which have not an existence.

Isaiah 65:11

11 But as for you, who forsake me and forget my holy mountain, and who prepare a table for the Demon, and fill up a mixed potion for Fortune, 12 you I will deliver up to the sword; you shall all bow down to slaughter.

Isaiah 66:3

3 As for the wicked man, who sacrificeth to me a young bull: he is one who slayeth a dog: and though he offereth me fine flour: it will be as the blood of swine. Though he offereth incense for a memorial, he is as a blasphemer. As they have chosen their own ways: and their soul hath delighted in their abominations:

Jeremiah 2:5-13

5 Thus saith the Lord, What fault did your fathers find in me, that they have withdrawn from me; and have gone after vanities and become vain:

Jeremiah 2:5

5 Thus saith the Lord, What fault did your fathers find in me, that they have withdrawn from me; and have gone after vanities and become vain: 6 and did not say, Where is the Lord, who brought us up out of the land of Egypt; who led us through the wilderness; through a boundless and untrodden land; through a land without water and without fruit; through a land which no man traversed, and where no man had a fixed abode. 7 When I brought you to Channel that you might eat its fruits and the good things thereof; you entered in and polluted my land; and made my heritage an abomination. 8 The priests did not say, "Where is the Lord?" and they who studied the law did not know me; the pastors also transgressed against me; and the prophets prophesied for Baal and went after an unprofitable thing. 9 For this also I will emplead you; and your childrens' children I will emplead. 10 For go to the isles of Chettim and see; and send to Kedar and make strict inquiry; and see if such things have ever happened: 11 have nations changed their Gods, though they are no Gods? but my people have changed their glory for that which will not profit them. 12 At this the heaven was astonished and shocked exceedingly, saith the Lord. 13 Because my people did two things which are both evil: they forsook me, the fountain of living water; and hewed out for themselves broken cisterns which cannot hold water.

Jeremiah 2:13

13 Because my people did two things which are both evil: they forsook me, the fountain of living water; and hewed out for themselves broken cisterns which cannot hold water.

Jeremiah 2:15

15 Against him lions roared and uttered their voice: they have made his land a desert and his cities are demolished so as to be uninhabitable.

Jeremiah 2:17

17 Hath not thy forsaking me, saith the Lord thy God, brought these things upon thee?

Jeremiah 2:19

19 Let this apostacy of thine correct thee. And thy wickedness work conviction in thee. And know and see how bitter a thing it is to forsake me, saith the Lord thy God. 20 Further, I have no pleasure in thee, saith the Lord thy God, because of old thou hast broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands, and said, I will not serve thee; but I will go up every high mount: and under every shady tree, I will there indulge my wantonness.

Jeremiah 2:20

20 Further, I have no pleasure in thee, saith the Lord thy God, because of old thou hast broken thy yoke, and burst thy bands, and said, I will not serve thee; but I will go up every high mount: and under every shady tree, I will there indulge my wantonness. 21 I indeed planted thee an entirely good and fruitful vine: how art thou, degenerate vine, turned to bitterness?

Jeremiah 2:30

30 In vain have I smitten your children, you did not receive instruction: a sword devoured your prophets, like a ravening lion; and you were not terrified. 31 Hear a word of the Lord! Thus saith the Lord, Was I a desert to Israel or a desolate land? Why did my people say, "We will not be lorded over, nor come to thee any more."

Jeremiah 2:33

33 Wilt thou yet study any decency in thy ways in search of love? Far from that, thou hast abandoned thyself to wickedness to pollute thy ways.

Jeremiah 3:1

1 If a man divorce his wife and she depart from him and marry another, can she return again to him? would not such a wife be altogether polluted? Yet thou hast played the harlot with many shepherds and hast returned to me saith the Lord.

Jeremiah 3:6

6 Again the Lord said to me in the days of Josias the king, Hast thou seen what the house of Israel have done to me? They have gone up upon every high mountain and under every shady tree and have there committed whoredom;

Jeremiah 3:12-14

12 go and proclaim these words to the north and thou shalt say, Return to me, house of Israel, saith the Lord, and I will not set my face against you. For I am merciful, saith the Lord and will not be angry with you forever. 13 Nevertheless acknowledge thine iniquity; that thou hast transgressed against the Lord thy God, and opened thy ways for strangers under every shady tree; and hast not hearkened to my voice, saith the Lord. 14 Return, O apostate children, saith the Lord: for I will exercise dominion over you, and take one of a city and two of a family and bring you to Sion:

Jeremiah 4:14

14 Jerusalem! wash thy heart from wickedness that thou mayst be saved. How long do ill grounded reasonings for thy troubles remain in thee?

Jeremiah 4:17

17 Like men watching a field they are all around her. Because thou wast not mindful of me saith the Lord,

Jeremiah 4:22

22 [J] Because the rulers of my people did not know me, they are foolish children and devoid of understanding. They are wise to do evil; but to do good they have no knowledge.

Jeremiah 5:3

3 [p] Lord, thine eyes look for faithfulness. Thou hast chastised them: but they have not grieved. Thou hast consumed them and they would not receive instruction. They have made their faces harder than a rock and refused to return.

Jeremiah 5:5

5 I will go to the nobles and speak to them. [J] Because these knew the way of the Lord and the judgment of God, and lo! with one consent, have broken the yoke and burst the bands;

Jeremiah 5:28-29

28 and overleaped judgment; they did not administer justice to the orphan, nor decide righteously the cause of the widow; 29 shall I not visit for these things, saith the Lord, and on such a nation as this shall not my soul be avenged?

Jeremiah 5:31

31 land. The prophets prophesy falsehoods, and the priests clapped with their hands, and my people loved to have it so. Now what will you do in regard to the consequences?

Jeremiah 6:8

8 be instructed, Jerusalem! lest my soul be alienated from thee; lest I make thee an untrodden land, which shall not be inhabited.

Jeremiah 6:14

14 and healed the hurt of my people by underrating it and saying Peace, Peace; but where is there peace?

Jeremiah 6:19

19 Hear earth, behold upon this people I am bringing evils; the fruit of their apostacy, because they attended not to my words and rejected my law. 20 Why do you bring me incense from Saba, and cinnamon from a far distant country? Your whole burnt offerings are not acceptable; nor were your incense offerings sweet to me.

Jeremiah 6:28-30

28 They are all disobedient and walk perversely. Being brass and iron they are all utterly consumed. 29 The bellows could not stand the fire: the lead is consumed. In vain doth the silversmith try to extract silver. Their wickedness was not to be melted.

Jeremiah 6:29

29 The bellows could not stand the fire: the lead is consumed. In vain doth the silversmith try to extract silver. Their wickedness was not to be melted. 30 You shall call them rejected silver, for the Lord hath rejected them.

Jeremiah 7:8-10

8 But if you continue to trust in lying words from which you can derive no benefit; 9 and commit murder, and adultery and steal and swear to a falsehood, and burn incense to Baal; and when you have gone after strange gods which you did not know; 10 you, because of your calamities, have then come and stood before me, in the house which is called by my name, and said, "We have been restrained from committing these abominations;"

Jeremiah 7:19

19 do they not vex themselves; that their faces may be covered with shame?

Jeremiah 7:21

21 Thus saith the Lord, Collect your whole burnt offerings with your sacrifices and eat flesh.

Jeremiah 7:26

26 yet they hearkened not to me nor inclined their ears; nay they hardened their necks more than their fathers;

Jeremiah 8:7

7 The stork in the heaven knoweth her season; so doth the dove and the swallow of the field; the ostriches observed the time of their coming; but my people do not know the judgments of the Lord.

Jeremiah 8:21-22

21 at the destruction of the daughter of my people I was whelmed in darkness: in distress I was seized with pangs like those of a woman in travail. 22 Is there no balm in Gilead? Is there no physician there? Why is not healing come for the daughter of my people. [[c] The chorus, the inhabitants of the country. [J] Jehovah, [p] The prophet.]

Jeremiah 9:3-6

3 and have bent their tongue like a bow; lying and infidelity prevailed in the land; because they have proceeded from evils to evils, and have not known me, saith the Lord;

Jeremiah 9:3

3 and have bent their tongue like a bow; lying and infidelity prevailed in the land; because they have proceeded from evils to evils, and have not known me, saith the Lord; 4 be upon your guard every man against his neighbour, and in your own brothers place no confidence; for every brother will supplant, and every friend walk deceitfully; 5 every one will treat his friend with contempt. They cannot speak truth; their tongue hath learned to speak lies. They have done injustice, and have not stopped to rectify it. 6 There is usury upon usury, deceit upon deceit; they refused to know me, saith the Lord: 7 therefore thus saith the Lord, Behold I will melt them and try them. What else can I do on account of the wickedness of the daughter of my people?

Jeremiah 9:26

26 Upon Egypt, and upon Idumea, and upon Edom, and upon the Ammonites, and upon the Moabites, and upon all that have their foreheads shaven; namely them who dwell in the wilderness. Because all the nations are uncircumcised in flesh, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in their hearts;

Jeremiah 10:8

8 [Omitted]

Jeremiah 10:14

14 Every man on account of knowledge became foolish. Every melter of gold was put to shame for his graven images, because he cast falsities and there is no breath in them.

Jeremiah 13:15

15 [p] Hearken and give ear and be not elated; for the Lord hath spoken.

Jeremiah 14:12

12 for though they fast I will not hear their prayer; and though they offer whole burnt offerings and sacrifices, I will not accept them. For with sword, and with famine, and with pestilence, I will utterly consume them.

Jeremiah 16:11-12

11 Then thou shalt say to them, Because your fathers have forsaken Me, saith the Lord, and have run after strange gods and served them and worshipped them, and have forsaken Me and have not kept My law; 12 and you have done evil worse than your fathers; and lo! you walk every one after the desires of your wicked heart, that you may not hearken to Me:

Jeremiah 17:5-6

5 Cursed is the man whose hope is on man; who shall fix the flesh of his arm on him, and whose heart hath departed from the Lord. 6 He shall be like the wild myrtle in the desert. He shall not see when good cometh; but shall dwell in parched places and in a desert-in a salt land which is uninhabited.

Jeremiah 22:3

3 Thus saith the Lord, Execute judgment and justice and deliver the spoiled out of the hand of him who wrongeth him; and over the stranger and the orphan and the widow tyrannise not; nor be guilty of impiety; nor shed innocent blood in this place.

Jeremiah 22:15-16

15 Is it thy desire to be made king? because thou art instigated by thy father Achaz, are there not feasts? are there not entertainments? better were it for thee to execute judgment and justice. 16 They did not take cognisance, they did not administer justice to the lowly, nor decide righteously the cause of the needy, is not this owing to thy not knowing me? saith the Lord. 17 Behold thine eyes are not good, neither is thy heart; but they are bent upon thine inordinate desires and on the shedding of innocent blood, and on injustice, and on murder; that thou mayst perpetrate these things.

Jeremiah 22:29

29 O earth, earth, hear a word of the Lord!

Jeremiah 23:14

14 but among the prophets of Jerusalem I saw horrible things; some committing adultery, and some walking in lies, and some strengthening the hands of the multitude, that none might turn from his evil way. To me they are all become like Sodom, and the inhabitants thereof like Gomorra:

Jeremiah 23:16

16 thus saith the Lord Almighty, Hearken not to the words of these prophets; for they contrive for themselves a foolish vision: they speak from their own hearts and not from the mouth of the Lord.

Jeremiah 25:5

5 saying, Turn ye every one from his evil way, and from your wicked pursuits and you shall dwell in this land, which I gave to you and your fathers from age to age.

Jeremiah 30:12

12 Thus said the Lord, I raised up affliction; thy wound was grievous;

Jeremiah 31:9

9 They set out with weeping; but I will bring them up with consolation, causing them to rest at fountains of water in a straight road; and in it they shall not be led astray, for I am become a father to Israel, and Ephraim is my first born.

Jeremiah 31:12

12 therefore they shall come and rejoice on mount Sion. They shall indeed come to the good things of the Lord; to a land of corn and wine, and of fruits and herds and flocks; and their soul shall be like a fruitful tree; and they shall no more be hungry.

Jeremiah 31:18-20

18 I have heard the voice of Ephraim moaning, "Thou hast chastised me and I have been chastised. I like a bullock was uninstructed, bring me back that I may return; for thou art the Lord my God. 19 For after my captivity I reformed and after I gained knowledge I groaned for my days of shame and shewed thee that I was ashamed of my youth." 20 Ephraim is a beloved son; my darling child; since my words are in him I will surely remember him. For this cause I have been anxious for him, I will surely have mercy upon him, saith the Lord.

Jeremiah 31:23

23 For thus saith the Lord, Again they shall use this form of words in the land of Juda and in his cities when I have brought back his captivity, "Blessed be the Lord on his righteous, his holy mountain."

Jeremiah 33:6

6 behold I am raising up for it a cure for wounds and a restorative, which I will shew them, and I will heal it and give it peace 7 and fidelity. And I will bring back the captivity of Juda and the captivity of Israel; and I will build them up as in former times.

Jeremiah 33:11

11 there shall be heard again the sound of joy and the sound of mirth; the voice of bridegroom and the voice of the bride; the voice of people, saying, "Praise the Lord Almighty; for the Lord is gracious; for his mercy endureth forever." And they shall bring gifts to the house of the Lord. For I will bring back all the captivity of this land, as in former times, saith the Lord.

Jeremiah 50:29

29 [J] Issue these orders to many against Babylon; to every one bending a bow;" Encamp against her round about; let none escape out of her." Render to her according to her works; according to all that she hath done, do ye to her. Because she set herself against the Lord, the holy God of Israel,

Jeremiah 50:34

34 therefore their Redeemer; the Mighty One, whose name is The Lord Almighty will plead their cause with their adversaries. In order that he may remove this land out of the way he will sharpen for the inhabitants of Babylon

Jeremiah 51:5

5 [p] Since Israel and Juda are not quite forsaken by their God, the Lord Almighty, on account of their land being filled with iniquity by reason of the sanctuaries of Israel;

Lamentations 1:8-9

8 Jerusalem sinned grievously, therefore she became unstable as a wave. By all that honoured her she hath been humbled, for they saw her nakedness, while she sighing turned away her face. 9 Her unclean ness was before her feet. She was insensible to her extreme distress. He hath indeed lowered her haughtiness; there is none who comforteth her. Lord, behold my affliction because the enemy is magnified.

Lamentations 2:1

1 Oh! how the Lord hath in his wrath covered with darkness the daughter of Sion! he hath cast down, from heaven, upon the earth, the glory of Israel; and hath not remembered his own footstool.

Lamentations 2:6

6 He laid open like a vineyard his own dwelling; he marred his own festivals. The Lord forgot the festivals and sabbaths which he had established in Sion, and by the rebuke of his anger vexed king and priest and chief.

Lamentations 3:22

22 On this account I will wait for the mercies of the Lord, because he hath not quite forsaken me; because his compassion is not exhausted. In the ensuing months, Lord, exercise compassion, since we are not quite consumed; since thy mercies are not exhausted.

Lamentations 4:1-2

1 How gold can be tarnished! How pure silver can be changed! Holy stones were shot down at the head of all the outlets. 2 The sons of Sion who were precious, more precious than gold; how they have been accounted as earthen vessels, the works of a potter's hands.

Lamentations 4:6

6 The transgression of the daughter of my people was greater than that of Sodom which was overthrown suddenly, without tiring hands with it.

Lamentations 5:2

2 and behold our reproach. Our inheritance is transferred to strangers; our houses to foreigners.

Ezekiel 5:13

13 And my wrath shall be spent, and mine indignation, on them; and thou shalt know why I the Lord have spoken in my zeal, when I have executed mine indignation on them.

Ezekiel 6:8

8 When some of you, who have escaped from the sword, are among the nations and in your dispersions through the countries;

Ezekiel 6:13

13 And you shall know that I am the Lord, when your slain are in the midst of your idols, around your altars, on every lofty mount, and under every shady tree, where they offered a sweet smelling savour to all their idols.

Ezekiel 8:17-18

17 And he said to me, Hast thou seen? Son of man. Is it a light thing for the house of Juda to commit the transgressions, which they have committed here? Because they have filled the land with iniquity, and lo! they are as it were insulting me to my face.[Note: Here something seems to be wanting. I apprehend; it was the people sacrificing to idols on the house tops.] 18 therefore I will deal with them with wrath. Mine eye shall not spare, nor will I have compassion.

Ezekiel 14:22

22 still, behold some are left in it, the saved of it, who are leading out of it sons and daughters; behold they are coming out to you and you shall see their ways and their desires, and be sorry for the evils which they have brought on Jerusalem; for all the evils which they have brought upon it.

Ezekiel 16:1-63

1 Then a word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Son of man testify against Jerusalem her iniquities, 3 and thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord to Jerusalem, Thy root and thy pedigree is from the land of Chanaan. Thy father was an Amorite and thy mother a Chettite, 4 and this is the history of thy birth; on the day thou wast born thy navel was not tied nor wert thou washed with water nor sprinkled with salt; nor wert thou wrapped up in swaddling bands. 5 But mine eye which was over thee did not spare to do for thee all these things; to compassionate thee. When thou wast cast out into the open field for thine ill shape, on the day thou wast born; 6 I passed by thee and saw thee polluted with thy blood and said to thee, From thy blood there is life.

Ezekiel 16:6-63

6 I passed by thee and saw thee polluted with thy blood and said to thee, From thy blood there is life. 7 Be multiplied like the grass of the field; I have betrothed thee. So thou didst increase and grow great and enter the class of chief cities. Thy breasts were fashioned and thy locks flowing. But thou wast naked and exposed to shame.

Ezekiel 16:7-63

7 Be multiplied like the grass of the field; I have betrothed thee. So thou didst increase and grow great and enter the class of chief cities. Thy breasts were fashioned and thy locks flowing. But thou wast naked and exposed to shame. 8 Then I passed by thee and beheld thee and lo! thou wast of a marriageable age. So I spread my skirt over thee and covered thy nakedness; and sware to thee and entered into covenant with thee, saith the Lord.

Ezekiel 16:8-63

8 Then I passed by thee and beheld thee and lo! thou wast of a marriageable age. So I spread my skirt over thee and covered thy nakedness; and sware to thee and entered into covenant with thee, saith the Lord. 9 And when thou becamest mine I washed thee with water, and cleansed away thy blood from thee and anointed thee with oil;

Ezekiel 16:9-63

9 And when thou becamest mine I washed thee with water, and cleansed away thy blood from thee and anointed thee with oil; 10 And I clothed thee with embroidery and shod thee with purple sandals and girded thee with a cotton zone and threw around thee a mantle of tissue.

Ezekiel 16:10-63

10 And I clothed thee with embroidery and shod thee with purple sandals and girded thee with a cotton zone and threw around thee a mantle of tissue. 11 And I decked thee with ornaments, and put bracelets round thy wrists and a chain round thy neck,

Ezekiel 16:11-63

11 And I decked thee with ornaments, and put bracelets round thy wrists and a chain round thy neck, 12 and gave thee a jewel for thy nose and ear-rings for thine ears, and a crown of exquisite beauty for thy head.

Ezekiel 16:12-63

12 and gave thee a jewel for thy nose and ear-rings for thine ears, and a crown of exquisite beauty for thy head. 13 So thou wast adorned with gold and silver, and thy raiment was of cotton, tissue and embroidery; and thy food was fine flour, oil and honey. And thou becamest exceeding beautiful,

Ezekiel 16:13-63

13 So thou wast adorned with gold and silver, and thy raiment was of cotton, tissue and embroidery; and thy food was fine flour, oil and honey. And thou becamest exceeding beautiful, 14 and thy fame spread among the nations for thy beauty. Because it was perfect by reason of the comeliness and the elegance with which I adorned thee, saith the Lord;

Ezekiel 16:14-63

14 and thy fame spread among the nations for thy beauty. Because it was perfect by reason of the comeliness and the elegance with which I adorned thee, saith the Lord; 15 thou wast vain of thy beauty and became a harlot because of thy renown: and didst pour out thy fornications upon every passenger. 16 Nay thou didst take some of thy garments and make for thyself idols of needle work; and didst commit gross fornication on them. Though thou shouldst not have gone in; nor should such a thing be done, 17 thou didst take the vessels, which were thy boast, made of my gold and of my silver, some of those which I gave thee; and didst make for thyself male images and commit fornication with them. 18 Thou didst take also thine embroidered raiment and clothe them and didst set mine oil and mine incense before them. 19 My bread also which I gave thee; the fine flour, oil and honey with which. I fed thee, these thou didst set before them for a sweet smelling savour. Nay, it came to pass, saith the Lord, 20 That thou didst take thy sons and thy daughters whom thou hadst born and didst sacrifice these to them to be devoured. As if it had been a small matter to commit fornication, 21 thou didst slay thy children and offer them up, making them expiatory sacrifices to those images, 22 [this exceeded all thy fornication] and didst not remember thy youth when thou wast naked and bare, when though polluted with thy blood thou didst live. 23 Nay after all these acts of iniquity, saith the Lord, 24 thou didst moreover build for thyself a brothel; and erect for thyself a place of prostitution in every street; 25 at the head of every street thou didst build thy brothels, and sacrifice thy beauty and prostitute thyself to every comer, and multiply thine acts of whoredom. 26 When thou hadst committed fornication with the Egyptians thy neighbours and lustful paramours; and hadst done this frequently to provoke me to wrath, 27 though I stretched forth my hand against thee, and deprived thee of thy dues and delivered thee up to them who hate thee; to the daughters of the Philistines, who turned thee out of that way in which thou wast committing iniquity; 28 yet thou wentest a whoring among the daughters of Assur; and even thus wast not satisfied. 29 So having committed whoredom and not being satiated thou didst multiply thy covenants with the land of the Chaldees and even with these thou wast not satisfied. 30 How can I dispose of thy daughter? saith the Lord seeing thou hast committed all these acts of an abandoned woman? And hast trebled thy fornication by thy daughters? 31 Having built a brothel at the head of every way, and erected a place of prostitution in every street, wast thou like a harlot collecting hire? 32 Was there ever an adulterous woman like thee receiving gifts from her husband and giving rewards to her gallants? 33 For thou hast given rewards to all thy lovers, and loaded them with gifts to come to thee from all around.

Ezekiel 16:33-63

33 For thou hast given rewards to all thy lovers, and loaded them with gifts to come to thee from all around. 34 So there was in thee a depravity beyond other women, both in thy whoredom and with regard to them who committed lewdness with thee. Thy giving gifts and no rewards being given thee are evidences of thy depravity. 35 Therefore, hear harlot, a word of the Lord, 36 thus saith the Lord, Because thou hast squandered thy money, therefore thy scandalous fornication shall be exposed before thy lovers; but for all thy wicked desires and for the blood of thy children whom thou hast sacrificed to them; 37 for this behold I will assemble all thy lovers with whom thou hast had connexion, both all whom thou hast loved and all whom thou hatedst, and I will gather against thee them from all around; and lay open thy wickedness before them, that they may see all thy shame. 38 And I will punish thee with the punishment of an adulteress, and involve thee in the blood of wrath and jealousy; 39 and deliver thee up into their hands. And they shall demolish thy brothel, and pull down thy place of prostitution, and strip thee of thy clothing and seize thy fair jewels; and when they shall have left thee naked and exposed to shame, 40 then crowds shall be brought against thee, who shall stone thee with stones and hack thee with their swords; 41 and they shall burn thy houses with fire, and execute vengeance on thee in the sight of many women. So will I turn thee from whoredom and no more give thee gifts. 42 Then I will cause my wrath against thee to abate, and my jealousy shall be removed from thee, and I will be quiet and no more care for thee.

Ezekiel 16:42

42 Then I will cause my wrath against thee to abate, and my jealousy shall be removed from thee, and I will be quiet and no more care for thee. 43 Because thou hast not remembered thy youth and hast grieved me with all these things; therefore behold I have requited thy ways on thy head, saith the Lord. 44 Thou indeed hast so added impiety to all thy transgressions that all these things have occasioned the parable which people use against thee, saying, "As was the mother so is the daughter." 45 Thou art indeed a very daughter of thy mother who abandoned her husband and her children: and the sisters of thy brothers are they who abandoned their husbands and their children. Your mother was a Chettite and your father an Amorite, 46 your eldest sister is Samaria; she and her daughters who live on thy left; and your youngest sister who liveth on thy right is Sodom with her daughters.

Ezekiel 16:46-63

46 your eldest sister is Samaria; she and her daughters who live on thy left; and your youngest sister who liveth on thy right is Sodom with her daughters. 47 But thou hast not walked even in their ways, nor done according to their transgressions in a small degree. Thou hast surpassed them in all thy ways. 48 As I live, saith the Lord, Sodom herself and her daughters did not do as thou and thy daughters have done. 49 But this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom; Pride. Through fulness of bread and prosperity she and her daughters grew wanton. There was this also in her and her daughters that they did not assist the distressed and the needy;

Ezekiel 16:49-63

49 But this was the iniquity of thy sister Sodom; Pride. Through fulness of bread and prosperity she and her daughters grew wanton. There was this also in her and her daughters that they did not assist the distressed and the needy; 50 but were haughty and committed iniquities in my sight; therefore I destroyed them. 51 In my view Samaria also did not commit half thy crimes. Thou indeed hast multiplied thine iniquities more than they, and justified thy sisters by all thine iniquities which thou hast committed. 52 Thou therefore shalt bear thy punishment. Inasmuch as thou hast corrupted thy sisters by thy sins, which thou hast committed in a more aggravated degree than they, and made them righteous in comparison of thee; be thou therefore confounded and bear thy dishonour, for having justified thy sisters. 53 When I turn back their apostacies; the apostacy of Sodom and her daughters, and turn back the apostacy of Samaria and her daughters, I will turn 54 back also thine apostacy in the midst of them; that thou mayst bear thy punishment and be dishonoured for all that thou hast 55 done to provoke me to anger. And when thy sister Sodom and her daughters shall be restored to their former state then thou and thy daughters shall be restored to your former state. 56 Now was not thy sister Sodom a by word in thy mouth in the days of thy pride, 57 before thy wickedness was discovered; in the same manner as thou art now the scoff of the daughters of Syria and of all around her and of all the daughters of the foreign tribes around thee? 58 Thou hast borne thy wickedness and thy transgressions, saith the Lord. 59 Thus saith the Lord, I will deal with thee as thou hast done. As thou hast slighted these things that thou mightest transgress my covenant, 60 when I remember my covenant made with thee in the days of thy youth and reestablish for thee an everlasting covenant; 61 then thou wilt recollect thy way and be ashamed, when thou hast again received thy sisters; the elder and the younger. For I will give them to thee to be part of thy family, but not by thy covenant. 62 And I will establish my covenant with thee; and thou shalt know that I am the Lord, 63 that thou mayst remember and be ashamed, and never more be able to open thy mouth, because of thy confusion when I make a complete atonement for thee according to all that thou hast done, saith the Lord.

Ezekiel 16:63

63 that thou mayst remember and be ashamed, and never more be able to open thy mouth, because of thy confusion when I make a complete atonement for thee according to all that thou hast done, saith the Lord.

Ezekiel 17:9-10

9 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord, Shall it prosper? Shall not the roots of this tender shoot and its fruit be blasted? Yes; all its former shoots shall wither; so that it will not require a strong arm nor much people to pull it up by its roots. 10 Though behold it is luxuriant, shall it prosper; shall it not wither at the first touch of a blasting wind? Both it and its sprouting shoot shall be withered.

Ezekiel 17:24

24 and all the trees of the plain shall know that I am the Lord who bringeth down the lofty tree, and exalteth the tree which is low, and who causeth the green tree to wither, and the withered tree to flourish. I the Lord have spoken and I will perform.

Ezekiel 18:30-31

30 I will judge you, saith the Lord, house of Israel, every one according to his way. Be converted and turn from all your acts of wickedness, and they shall not bring upon you the punishment of iniquity. 31 Cast away from you all your impious acts; which you have impiously committed against me; and make yourselves a new heart and a new spirit: now why do you die, house of Israel,

Ezekiel 20:5-32

5 and thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the Lord, from the day I chose the house of Israel; and was made known to the seed of the house of Jacob; and acknowledged by them in the land of Egypt; when I took hold of them with my hand, saying, I the Lord am your God,; 6 on the very day when I took hold of them with my hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt into the land which I had prepared for them; a land flowing with milk and honey; it is the honeycomb of the whole earth; 7 though I said to them let every one put away the abominations of his eyes and with the devices of Egypt be not polluted, I the Lord am your God; 8 yet they apostatized from me and would not hearken to me. They did not cast away the abominations of their eyes, nor did they utterly forsake the devices of Egypt; therefore I spoke of pouring out my wrath on them; of spending mine indignation on them in the midst of Egypt: 9 but that my name might not be altogether profaned in the sight of the nations among whom they were, I did in their sight [those miracles] by which I was made known to them, in order to bring them out of the land of Egypt. 10 So I led them into the wilderness; and gave them my statutes 11 and made known to them my rules of rectitude, which if a man practise he shall live thereby; 12 I gave them also my sabbaths, to be a sign between me and them; that they might know that I the Lord am their sanctifier. 13 And I said to the house of Israel in the wilderness, "Walk in my statutes, "but they walked not. They rejected my rules of rectitude, which if a man practise he shall live by them; and they profaned my sabbaths exceedingly: whereupon I spoke of pouring out my wrath on them in the wilderness, to destroy them utterly: 14 But I acted so that my name should not be altogether profaned in the sight of the nations, before whose eyes I had brought them out: 15 and I lifted up my hand against them in the wilderness thus far; that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, [a land flowing with milk and honey: it is the honey comb of the whole earth] 16 because they had rejected my rules of rectitude, and had not walked in my statutes; but profaned my sabbaths, and had gone after the desires of their own heart. 17 But mine eye had compassion on them so as not to blot them out entirely; so I did not bring them to utter destruction in the wilderness. 18 Then I said to their children in the wilderness, walk not ye in the customs of your fathers, nor observe their rules of conduct; have no communication with their devices and be not polluted. 19 I the Lord am your God; walk in my statutes, and keep my rules of rectitude and practise them; 20 and hallow my sabbaths and let them be a sign between me and you, that you acknowledge that I the Lord am your God. 21 But even these their children rebelled against me. In my statutes they did not walk, nor did they keep my rules of rectitude to practise them, which if a man do he shall live by them; and they profaned my sabbaths; therefore I spoke of pouring out my wrath upon them in the wilderness; of accomplishing mine indignation upon them. 22 But I acted so that my name should not be utterly profaned in the sight of the nations. As I had brought them out before their eyes, 23 I lifted up my hand against them in the wilderness that I would scatter them among the nations and disperse them through the countries. 24 Because they did not practise my rules of rectitude, but rejected my statutes and profaned my sabbaths, and their eyes were after the desires of their fathers; 25 therefore I gave them statutes not morally good, and rules of conduct in which they could not entitle themselves to life by them, 26 that I might by their own doctrinal notions pollute them, when I passed through all their first born males in order to remove them out of sight. 27 Therefore, speak to the house of Israel, son of man, and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord, thus far your fathers provoked me to wrath, by their transgressions which they committed against me. 28 And when I brought them into the land, which I lifted up my hand to give them; they beheld every high hill and every shady grove, and there they sacrificed to their gods; and there set in order the sweet smelling savour; and there poured out their libations. 29 And when I said to them, What is this Abama, that you go thither, they called its name Abama. which it retaineth to this day. 30 Therefore say to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord if you are polluted with the iniquities of your fathers and you go a whoring after their abominations 31 even with the first fruits of your gifts; with those dedications? with which you are polluted by all your desires even to this day, shall I return you an answer, house of Israel? As I live, saith the Lord, I will not answer you. 32 And though this should come into your mind it shall not be as you say, "We will be like the nations and like the tribes of the earth in worshipping stocks and stones."

Ezekiel 20:38

38 and select from among you the wicked and the apostates; [for out of their captivity I will bring even these, but into the land of Israel they shall not come] and you shall know that I am the Lord, Lord. 39 Now as for you, house of Israel; Thus saith the Lord, put away every one his devices, and after that if you will hearken to me, and no more profane my holy name with your gifts your devices,

Ezekiel 20:47-48

47 and thou shalt say to the forest of Nageb, hear a word of the Lord, Thus saith the Lord, Lord, behold I am kindling a fire in thee, and it shall devour in thee every green tree and every dry tree; and the flame which is kindled shall not be extinguished; and by it the whole surface from south to north shall be burned up. 48 And all flesh shall know that I the Lord have kindled it. It shall not be extinguished.

Ezekiel 21:17

17 And as for me I will clap my hands and give a loose to my wrath. I the Lord have spoken.

Ezekiel 22:1-23

1 Then a word of the Lord came to me, saying, 2 Now, son of man, if thou will judge this bloody city, then point out to it all its iniquities 3 and thou shalt say, Thus saith the Lord, Lord, city, which sheddest blood in the midst of thee, to cause thy time to come; and which makest idols against thyself to pollute thyself. 4 In the blood which thou hast shed, thou art fallen: and with thine idols, which thou hast made, thou art defiled: and thou hast caused thy days to draw near, and hast brought on the term of thy years; therefore I have made thee a scoff to the nations, and a mocking stock to all the countries; 5 to those near and to those far from thee; and they shall insult thee, thou impure, infamous and abandoned city. 6 Behold in thee the princes of the house of Israel banded themselves, every one with his relations, that they might shed blood.

Ezekiel 22:6-12

6 Behold in thee the princes of the house of Israel banded themselves, every one with his relations, that they might shed blood. 7 In thee they reviled father and mother; and in thee practised injustice against the stranger. They oppressed the widow and the orphan;

Ezekiel 22:7-12

7 In thee they reviled father and mother; and in thee practised injustice against the stranger. They oppressed the widow and the orphan; 8 and in thee they despised my holy things and profaned my sabbaths.

Ezekiel 22:8-12

8 and in thee they despised my holy things and profaned my sabbaths. 9 In thee men became robbers, that in thee they might shed blood. And they ate upon the mountains near thee; and in the midst of thee committed abominable things.

Ezekiel 22:9-12

9 In thee men became robbers, that in thee they might shed blood. And they ate upon the mountains near thee; and in the midst of thee committed abominable things. 10 In thee they uncovered the nakedness of a father; and in thee humbled a woman in a state of separation.

Ezekiel 22:10-12

10 In thee they uncovered the nakedness of a father; and in thee humbled a woman in a state of separation. 11 In thee one debauched his neighbour's wife; another wantonly defiled his daughter in law; and another humbled his sister, his father's daughter.

Ezekiel 22:11-12

11 In thee one debauched his neighbour's wife; another wantonly defiled his daughter in law; and another humbled his sister, his father's daughter. 12 In thee they received bribes to shed blood. In thee they took interest and usury, and thou hast completed thy wickedness by oppression. And me thou hast forgotten, saith the Lord.

Ezekiel 22:12-12

12 In thee they received bribes to shed blood. In thee they took interest and usury, and thou hast completed thy wickedness by oppression. And me thou hast forgotten, saith the Lord. 13 Now when I lay my hand on thee to destroy thee, for what thou hast done and for the blood which hath been shed in thee; 14 will thy heart endure? Will thy hands be strong in the day I deal with thee? I the Lord have spoken and I will perform. 15 I will scatter thee among the nations and disperse thee through the countries, and when thine impurity shall be consumed out of thee, 16 I will take possession of thee in the sight of all the nations; and you shall know that I am the Lord. 17 Again a word of the Lord came to me, saying, 18 son of man, Behold to me the house of Israel are all become mixed with brass and iron and tin and lead with a mixture of silver.

Ezekiel 22:18-22

18 son of man, Behold to me the house of Israel are all become mixed with brass and iron and tin and lead with a mixture of silver. 19 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord, Lord, Because you are become one mass, I will therefore gather you into the midst of Jerusalem:

Ezekiel 22:19-22

19 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord, Lord, Because you are become one mass, I will therefore gather you into the midst of Jerusalem: 20 as silver and brass and iron and tin and lead are put in a furnace, that the fire may be blown on it and that it may be melted; So will I take you in my wrath and gather you and melt you.

Ezekiel 22:20-22

20 as silver and brass and iron and tin and lead are put in a furnace, that the fire may be blown on it and that it may be melted; So will I take you in my wrath and gather you and melt you.

Ezekiel 22:20

20 as silver and brass and iron and tin and lead are put in a furnace, that the fire may be blown on it and that it may be melted; So will I take you in my wrath and gather you and melt you. 21 And I will blow upon you with the fire of my wrath and you shall be melted in the midst of it.

Ezekiel 22:21-22

21 And I will blow upon you with the fire of my wrath and you shall be melted in the midst of it. 22 As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace; so shall you be melted in the midst of it; and you shall know that I the Lord have poured out my wrath on you.

Ezekiel 22:22-22

22 As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace; so shall you be melted in the midst of it; and you shall know that I the Lord have poured out my wrath on you.

Ezekiel 22:22

22 As silver is melted in the midst of a furnace; so shall you be melted in the midst of it; and you shall know that I the Lord have poured out my wrath on you. 23 Again a word of the Lord came to me, saying;

Ezekiel 24:13

13 Its verdigrease shall be exposed to shame. Because thou wast polluted what else could be done, since thou wouldst not be cleansed till I filled up my wrath?

Ezekiel 30:12

12 And I will dry up their rivers and destroy the land, and the fulness thereof by the hands of strangers, I the Lord have spoken.

Ezekiel 31:4-18

4 Water nourished him. The deep made him lofty. It brought its streams about his roots, and sent forth its rills to all the trees of the plain. 5 By reason of this he was exalted in greatness above all the trees of the plain, and by the plentiful supply of water his branches spread. 6 Among his boughs all the birds of the air built their nests; and under his branches all the beasts of the field brought forth their young; and all the multitude of nations dwelt in its shade. 7 He was beautiful in his height by the multitude of his branches, because his roots shot out into abundance of water. 8 Even the cypresses such as were in the paradise of God and the pines were not to be compared with his shoots, nor were the fir trees comparable to his branches. Not a tree in the garden of God was equal to him in beauty, 9 on the account of the multitude of his branches; therefore, the trees of God's delicious paradise envied him on that account. 10 But thus saith the Lord, Because thou wast of great magnitude, therefore thou hast shot up thy top among the clouds. Now when I saw that he was lifted up, 11 I delivered him into the hands of the chief of nations, who accomplished his destruction. 12 Strangers, merciless ravagers from nations destroyed him. They felled him on the mountains and his branches fell in all the vallies, and his shoots were trampled down in every field of the earth; and all the tribes of the nations came down from their shade, and levelled him to the ground. 13 Upon his ruins all the birds of the air rested themselves; and all the wild beasts of the earth came against his shoots; 14 that none of the trees by the water might be exalted by their greatness: though they had shot up their top among the clouds, yet none of these water drinkers stood in their height before them; they were all delivered up to death, to the depth of the earth, among the children of men, to them who go down to the pit. 15 Thus saith the Lord, On the day he went down to Hades, the abyss mourned for him. I stayed its streams and restrained the abundance of water. For him Libanus covered itself with darkness; all the trees of the field were grieved for him. 16 At the sound of his fall the nations were shaken. When he was pressed down to the mansion of the dead, with them who go down into the pit; all the trees of the garden comforted him in the earth; even the choice trees of Libanus, all that drink water; 17 for they also went down with him to the mansion of the dead, among them who were victims of the sword; and his seed; they who dwelt under his shade were in the middle of their life destroyed. 18 To whomsoever thou hast been likened, down with thee, and be pressed low with the trees of pleasure into the depth of the earth. In the midst of the uncircumcised thou shalt lie, with them who are the victims of the swords. Thus shall it be with Pharao and the multitude of his strength, saith the Lord, Lord.

Ezekiel 32:21

Because we sinned against him,
