22:1 Moreover the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
22:2 Now, thou son [H1121] of man [H120] , wilt thou judge [H8199] , wilt thou judge [H8199] the bloody [H1818] city [H5892] ? yea, thou shalt shew [H3045] her all her abominations [H8441] .(judge: or, plead for)(bloody: Heb. city of bloods?)(shew her: Heb. make her know)
22:3 Then say [H559] thou, Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , The city [H5892] sheddeth [H8210] blood [H1818] in the midst [H8432] of it, that her time [H6256] may come [H935] , and maketh [H6213] idols [H1544] against herself to defile [H2930] herself.
22:4 Thou art become guilty [H816] in thy blood [H1818] that thou hast shed [H8210] ; and hast defiled [H2930] thyself in thine idols [H1544] which thou hast made [H6213] ; and thou hast caused thy days [H3117] to draw near [H7126] , and art come [H935] [even] unto thy years [H8141] : therefore have I made [H5414] thee a reproach [H2781] unto the heathen [H1471] , and a mocking [H7048] to all countries [H776] .
22:5 [Those that be] near [H7138] , and [those that be] far [H7350] from thee, shall mock [H7046] thee, [which art] infamous [H2931] [H8034] [and] much [H7227] vexed [H4103] .(infamous: Heb. polluted of name, much in vexation)
22:6 Behold, the princes [H5387] of Israel [H3478] , every one [H376] were in thee to their power [H2220] to shed [H8210] blood [H1818] .(power: Heb. arm)
22:7 In thee have they set light [H7043] by father [H1] and mother [H517] : in the midst [H8432] of thee have they dealt [H6213] by oppression [H6233] with the stranger [H1616] : in thee have they vexed [H3238] the fatherless [H3490] and the widow [H490] .(oppression: or, deceit)
22:8 Thou hast despised [H959] mine holy things [H6944] , and hast profaned [H2490] my sabbaths [H7676] .
22:9 In thee are men [H582] that carry tales [H7400] to shed [H8210] blood [H1818] : and in thee they eat [H398] upon the mountains [H2022] : in the midst [H8432] of thee they commit [H6213] lewdness [H2154] .(that: Heb. of slanders)
22:10 In thee have they discovered [H1540] their fathers' [H1] nakedness [H6172] : in thee have they humbled [H6031] her that was set apart [H5079] for pollution [H2931] .
22:11 And one [H376] hath committed [H6213] abomination [H8441] with his neighbour's [H7453] wife [H802] ; and another [H376] hath lewdly [H2154] defiled [H2930] his daughter in law [H3618] ; and another [H376] in thee hath humbled [H6031] his sister [H269] , his father's [H1] daughter [H1323] .(one: or, every one)(another: or, every one)(lewdly: or, by lewdness)
22:12 In thee have they taken [H3947] gifts [H7810] to shed [H8210] blood [H1818] ; thou hast taken [H3947] usury [H5392] and increase [H8636] , and thou hast greedily gained [H1214] of thy neighbours [H7453] by extortion [H6233] , and hast forgotten [H7911] me, saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
22:13 Behold, therefore I have smitten [H5221] mine hand [H3709] at thy dishonest gain [H1215] which thou hast made [H6213] , and at thy blood [H1818] which hath been in the midst [H8432] of thee.
22:14 Can thine heart [H3820] endure [H5975] , or can thine hands [H3027] be strong [H2388] , in the days [H3117] that I shall deal [H6213] with thee? I the LORD [H3068] have spoken [H1696] [it], and will do [H6213] [it].
22:15 And I will scatter [H6327] thee among the heathen [H1471] , and disperse [H2219] thee in the countries [H776] , and will consume [H8552] thy filthiness [H2932] out of thee.
22:16 And thou shalt take thine inheritance [H2490] [H5157] in thyself in the sight [H5869] of the heathen [H1471] , and thou shalt know [H3045] that I [am] the LORD [H3068] .(shalt take: or, shalt be profaned)
22:17 And the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
22:18 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] is to me become dross [H5509] : all they [are] brass [H5178] , and tin [H913] , and iron [H1270] , and lead [H5777] , in the midst [H8432] of the furnace [H3564] ; they are [even] the dross [H5509] of silver [H3701] .(dross of silver: Heb. drosses, etc)
22:19 Therefore thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Because ye are all become dross [H5509] , behold, therefore I will gather [H6908] you into the midst [H8432] of Jerusalem [H3389] .
22:20 [As] they gather [H6910] silver [H3701] , and brass [H5178] , and iron [H1270] , and lead [H5777] , and tin [H913] , into the midst [H8432] of the furnace [H3564] , to blow [H5301] the fire [H784] upon it, to melt [H5413] [it]; so will I gather [H6908] [you] in mine anger [H639] and in my fury [H2534] , and I will leave [H3240] [you there], and melt [H5413] you.(As: Heb. According to the gathering)
22:21 Yea, I will gather [H3664] you, and blow [H5301] upon you in the fire [H784] of my wrath [H5678] , and ye shall be melted [H5413] in the midst [H8432] thereof.
22:22 As silver [H3701] is melted [H2046] in the midst [H8432] of the furnace [H3564] , so shall ye be melted [H5413] in the midst [H8432] thereof; and ye shall know [H3045] that I the LORD [H3068] have poured out [H8210] my fury [H2534] upon you.
22:23 And the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
22:24 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , say [H559] unto her, Thou [art] the land [H776] that is not cleansed [H2891] , nor rained [H1656] upon in the day [H3117] of indignation [H2195] .
22:25 [There is] a conspiracy [H7195] of her prophets [H5030] in the midst [H8432] thereof, like a roaring [H7580] lion [H738] ravening [H2963] the prey [H2964] ; they have devoured [H398] souls [H5315] ; they have taken [H3947] the treasure [H2633] and precious things [H3366] ; they have made her many [H7235] widows [H490] in the midst [H8432] thereof.
22:26 Her priests [H3548] have violated [H2554] my law [H8451] , and have profaned [H2490] mine holy things [H6944] : they have put no difference [H914] between the holy [H6944] and profane [H2455] , neither have they shewed [H3045] [difference] between the unclean [H2931] and the clean [H2889] , and have hid [H5956] their eyes [H5869] from my sabbaths [H7676] , and I am profaned [H2490] among [H8432] them.(violated: Heb. offered violence to)
22:27 Her princes [H8269] in the midst [H7130] thereof [are] like wolves [H2061] ravening [H2963] the prey [H2964] , to shed [H8210] blood [H1818] , [and] to destroy [H6] souls [H5315] , to get [H1214] dishonest gain [H1215] .
22:28 And her prophets [H5030] have daubed [H2902] them with untempered [H8602] [morter], seeing [H2374] vanity [H7723] , and divining [H7080] lies [H3577] unto them, saying [H559] , Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] , when the LORD [H3068] hath not spoken [H1696] .
22:29 The people [H5971] of the land [H776] have used oppression [H6231] [H6233] , and exercised [H1497] robbery [H1498] , and have vexed [H3238] the poor [H6041] and needy [H34] : yea, they have oppressed [H6231] the stranger [H1616] wrongfully [H4941] .(oppression: or, deceit)(wrongfully: Heb. without right)
22:30 And I sought [H1245] for a man [H376] among them, that should make up [H1443] the hedge [H1447] , and stand [H5975] in the gap [H6556] before [H6440] me for the land [H776] , that I should not destroy [H7843] it: but I found [H4672] none.
22:31 Therefore have I poured out [H8210] mine indignation [H2195] upon them; I have consumed [H3615] them with the fire [H784] of my wrath [H5678] : their own way [H1870] have I recompensed [H5414] upon their heads [H7218] , saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
