New International Version (1984)

Day of Disaster

16Then the word of the LORD came to me:H1697H3068H559 2"You must not marry and have sons or daughters in this place."H3947H802H1121H1323H4725 3For this is what the LORD says about the sons and daughters born in this land and about the women who are their mothers and the men who are their fathers:H559H3068H1121H1323H3205H4725H517H3205H1H3209H776 4"They will die of deadly diseases. They will not be mourned or buried but will be like refuse lying on the ground. They will perish by sword and famine, and their dead bodies will become food for the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth."H4191H8463H4463H5594H6912H1828H6440H127H3615H2719H7458H5038H3978H5775H8064H929H776 5For this is what the LORD says: "Do not enter a house where there is a funeral meal; do not go to mourn or show sympathy, because I have withdrawn my blessing, my love and my pity from this people," declares the LORD.H559H3068H935H1004H4798H3212H5594H5110H622H7965H5971H5002H3068H2617H7356 6"Both high and low will die in this land. They will not be buried or mourned, and no one will cut himself or shave his head for them.H1419H6996H4191H776H6912H5594H1413H7139 7No one will offer food to comfort those who mourn for the dead--not even for a father or a mother--nor will anyone give them a drink to console them.H6536H60H5162H4191H3563H8575H8248H1H517 8"And do not enter a house where there is feasting and sit down to eat and drink.H935H1004H4960H3427H398H8354 9For this is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: Before your eyes and in your days I will bring an end to the sounds of joy and gladness and to the voices of bride and bridegroom in this place.H559H3068H6635H430H3478H7673H4725H5869H3117H6963H8342H6963H8057H6963H2860H6963H3618 10"When you tell these people all this and they ask you, 'Why has the LORD decreed such a great disaster against us? What wrong have we done? What sin have we committed against the LORD our God?'H5046H5971H1697H559H3068H1696H1419H7451H5771H2403H2398H3068H430 11then say to them, 'It is because your fathers forsook me,' declares the LORD, 'and followed other gods and served and worshiped them. They forsook me and did not keep my law.H559H1H5800H5002H3068H3212H310H312H430H5647H7812H5800H8104H8451 12But you have behaved more wickedly than your fathers. See how each of you is following the stubbornness of his evil heart instead of obeying me.H6213H7489H1H2009H1980H376H310H8307H7451H3820H8085 13So I will throw you out of this land into a land neither you nor your fathers have known, and there you will serve other gods day and night, for I will show you no favor.'H2904H776H776H3045H1H5647H312H430H3119H3915H5414H2594 14"However, the days are coming," declares the LORD, "when men will no longer say, 'As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,'H3117H935H5002H3068H559H3068H2416H5927H1121H3478H776H4714 15but they will say, 'As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north and out of all the countries where he had banished them.' For I will restore them to the land I gave their forefathers.H3068H2416H5927H1121H3478H776H6828H776H5080H7725H127H5414H1 16"But now I will send for many fishermen," declares the LORD, "and they will catch them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks.H7971H7227H1771H1728H5002H3068H1770H310H7971H7227H6719H6679H2022H1389H5357H5553 17My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.H5869H1870H5641H6440H5771H6845H5048H5869 18I will repay them double for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land with the lifeless forms of their vile images and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols."H7223H7999H5771H2403H4932H2490H776H4390H5159H5038H8251H8441 19O LORD, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress, to you the nations will come from the ends of the earth and say, "Our fathers possessed nothing but false gods, worthless idols that did them no good.H3068H5797H4581H4498H3117H6869H1471H935H657H776H559H1H5157H8267H1892H3276 20Do men make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods!"H120H6213H430H430 21"Therefore I will teach them--this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name is the LORD.H6471H3045H3045H3027H1369H3045H8034H3068
