12 (A)Therefore the people of Israel cannot stand before their enemies. They (B)turn their backs before their enemies, because they have become (C)devoted for destruction.[a] I will be with you no more, unless you destroy (D)the devoted things from among you. 13 Get up! Consecrate the people and say, (E)‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow; for thus says the Lord, God of Israel, “There are devoted things in your midst, O Israel. You cannot stand before your enemies until you take away the devoted things from among you.” 14 In the morning therefore you shall be brought near (F)by your tribes. And the tribe that the Lord takes by lot shall come near by clans. And the clan that the Lord takes shall come near by households. And the household that the Lord takes shall come near man by man. 15 (G)And he who is taken with the devoted things shall be burned with fire, he and all that he has, because he has (H)transgressed the covenant of the Lord, and because he has done (I)an outrageous thing in Israel.’”
