The Slaughter of Idolaters

9Then the Lord thundered, “Bring on the men appointed to punish the city! Tell them to bring their weapons with them!”H7121H241H1419H6963H559H6486H5892H7126H376H4892H3627H3027 2Six men soon appeared from the upper gate that faces north, each carrying a deadly weapon in his hand. With them was a man dressed in linen, who carried a writer’s case at his side. They all went into the Temple courtyard and stood beside the bronze altar.H8337H582H935H1870H5945H8179H6437H6828H376H4660H3627H3027H259H376H8432H3847H906H5608H7083H4975H935H5975H681H5178H4196 3Then the glory of the God of Israel rose up from between the cherubim, where it had rested, and moved to the entrance of the Temple. And the Lord called to the man dressed in linen who was carrying the writer’s case.H3519H430H3478H5927H3742H4670H1004H7121H376H3847H906H5608H7083H4975 4He said to him, “Walk through the streets of Jerusalem and put a mark on the foreheads of all who weep and sigh because of the detestable sins being committed in their city.”H3068H559H5674H8432H5892H8432H3389H8427H8420H4696H582H584H602H8441H6213H8432 5Then I heard the Lord say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity!H428H559H241H5674H310H5892H5221H5869H2347H2550 6Kill them all—old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin right here at the Temple.” So they began by killing the seventy leaders.H2026H4889H2205H970H1330H2945H802H5066H376H8420H2490H4720H2490H2205H582H6440H1004 7“Defile the Temple!” the Lord commanded. “Fill its courtyards with corpses. Go!” So they went and began killing throughout the city.H559H2930H1004H4390H2691H2491H3318H3318H5221H5892 8While they were out killing, I was all alone. I fell face down on the ground and cried out, “O Sovereign Lord! Will your fury against Jerusalem wipe out everyone left in Israel?”H5221H7604H5307H6440H2199H559H162H136H3069H7843H7611H3478H8210H2534H3389 9Then he said to me, “The sins of the people of Israel and Judah are very, very great. The entire land is full of murder; the city is filled with injustice. They are saying, ‘The Lord doesn’t see it! The Lord has abandoned the land!’H559H5771H1004H3478H3063H3966H3966H1419H776H4390H1818H5892H4390H4297H559H3068H5800H776H3068H7200 10So I will not spare them or have any pity on them. I will fully repay them for all they have done.”H5869H2347H2550H5414H1870H7218 11Then the man in linen clothing, who carried the writer’s case, reported back and said, “I have done as you commanded.”H376H3847H906H7083H4975H7725H1697H559H6213H6680
