Ezekiel 33:24-26 New English Translation (NET Bible)

24 “Son of man, the ones living in these ruins in the land of Israel are saying, ‘Abraham was only one man, yet he possessed the land, but we are many; surely the land has been given to us for a possession.’[a] 25 Therefore say to them, ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says: You eat the meat with the blood still in it,[b] pray to[c] your idols, and shed blood. Do you really think you will possess[d] the land? 26 You rely[e] on your swords and commit abominable deeds; each of you defiles his neighbor’s wife. Will you possess the land?’
