Ezekiel 12:16 - 12:24

16 But I will spare a few of them from sword, famine, and pestilence that they may recount all their abominations among the nations where they go, and may know that I am Yahweh.” 17 Moreover, the word of Yahweh came to me saying, 18 “Son of man, you shall eat your bread with trembling and drink your water with quivering and anxiety. 19 Then you will say to the people of the land, ‘Thus says Lord Yahweh concerning the inhabitants of Jerusalem in the land of Israel, “They will eat their bread with anxiety and drink their water with desolation because their very soil will be made desolate of its fullness on account of the violence of all who inhabit it. 20 The inhabited cities will be laid waste, and the land will be a desolation. So you will know that I am Yahweh.”’” 21 Then the word of Yahweh came to me, saying, 22 “Son of man, what is this proverb you people have concerning the land of Israel, saying, ‘The days are long, and every vision fails’? 23 Therefore say to them, ‘Thus says Lord Yahweh, “I will make this proverb cease so that they will no longer use it as a proverb in Israel.” But speak to them, “The days draw near as well as the fulfillment of every vision. 24 For there will no longer be any worthless vision or flattering divination in the midst of the house of Israel.
