1The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
2“You, son of man—the Lord Yahweh says this to the land of Israel.” 'An end! An end has come to the four borders of the land.
3Now the end is upon you, for I am sending out my wrath on you, and I will judge you according to your ways; then I will bring all your abominations upon you.
4For my eyes will not pity you, and I will not spare you. Instead, I will bring your ways upon you, and your abominations will be in your midst, so you will know that I am Yahweh.
5The Lord Yahweh says this: Disaster! A unique disaster! Behold, it is coming.
6An end is surely coming. The end has woken up against you. Behold, it is coming!
7Your doom is coming to you who inhabit the land. The time has come; the day of destruction is near, and the mountains will no longer be joyful.
8Now before long I will pour out my fury against you and fill up my wrath upon you when I judge you according to your ways and bring all your abominations upon you.
9For my eye will not look compassionately, and I will not spare you. As you have done, I will do to you; and your abominations will be in your midst so you will know that I am Yahweh, the one punishing you.
10Behold, the day! Behold, it is coming! Doom has gone out! The rod has blossomed, arrogance has budded!
11Violence has grown up into a rod of wickedness— none of them, and none of their multitude, none of their wealth, and none of their importance will last!
12The time is coming; the day has come close. Do not let the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn, since my anger is on the entire multitude!
13For the seller will not return to the land he sold as long as they both live, because the vision concerning the entire multitude will not be reversed; and because of their sins, none of them will be strengthened!
14They have blown the trumpet and made everything ready, but there is no one marching to battle; since my anger is on the entire multitude.
15The sword is on the outside, and plague and famine are inside the building. Those who are in the field will die by the sword, while famine and plague will consume those in the city.
16But some survivors will escape from among them, and they will go to the mountains. Like doves of the valleys, all of them will moan—each man for his iniquity.
17Every hand will falter and every knee will be weak as water,
18and they will wear sackcloth, and terror will cover them; and shame will be on every face, and baldness on all of their heads.

19They will throw their silver into the streets and their gold will be like refuse. Their silver and their gold will not be able to rescue them in the day of Yahweh's rage. Their lives will not be saved, and their hunger will not be satisfied, because their iniquity has become a stumbling block.
20In their pride they took the beauty of his jeweled ornaments, and with them they made their idolatrous figures, and their detestable things. Therefore, I am turning these into an unclean thing to them.
21Then I will give those things into the hand of strangers as plunder and to the wicked of the earth as plunder, and they will defile them.
22Then I will turn my face away from them when they defile my cherished place; bandits will enter it and defile it.
23Make a chain, because the land is filled with the judgment of blood, and the city is full of violence.
24So I will bring the most wicked of the nations, and they will possess their houses, and I will bring an end to the pride of the mighty, for their holy places will be defiled!
25Fear will come! They will seek peace, but there will be none.
26Disaster upon disaster will come, and there will be rumor after rumor. Then they will seek a vision from the prophet, but the law will perish from the priest and advice from the elders.
27The king will mourn and the prince will dress in despair, while the hands of the people of the land will tremble in fear. According to their own ways I will do this to them! I will judge them with their own standards until they know that I am Yahweh.'”
