Ezekiel 9 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

1 The destruction of the city. 4 They that shall be saved, are marked. 8 A complaint of the Prophet for the destruction of the people.

He cried also with a loud voice in mine ears, saying, The visitations of [a]the city draw near, and every man hath a weapon in his hand to destroy it.

And behold, six [b]men came by the way of the high gate, which lieth toward the [c]North, and every man a weapon in his hand to destroy it: and one man among them was clothed with linen, with a writer’s [d]inkhorn by his side, and they went in and stood beside the brazen altar.

And the glory of the God of Israel was [e]gone up from the Cherub, whereupon he was, and stood on the [f]door of the house, and he called to the man clothed with linen, which had the writer’s inkhorn by his side.

And the Lord said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, even through the midst of Jerusalem, and [g]set a mark upon the foreheads of them that [h]mourn, and cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

And to the other he said, that I might hear, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let your eye spare none, neither have pity.

Destroy utterly the old, and the young, and the maids, and the children, and the women, but touch no man, upon whom is the [i]mark, and begin at my Sanctuary. Then they began at the [j]ancient men, which were before the house.

And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain, then go forth: and they went out and slew them in the city.

Now when they had slain them, and I had escaped, I fell down upon my face, and cried, saying, [k]Ah Lord God, wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel, in pouring out thy wrath upon Jerusalem?

Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel, and Judah is exceeding great, so that the land is full of [l]blood, and the city full of corrupt judgment: for they say, The Lord hath forsaken the earth, and the Lord seeth us not.

10 As touching me also, mine eye shall not spare them, neither will I have pity, but will recompense their ways upon their heads.

11 And behold, the man clothed with linen which had the inkhorn by his side, made report, and said, Lord, I have done as thou hast commanded me.
