Those that be near, and those that be far from you, shall mock you, which are infamous and much vexed.
ContextThe Sins of Jerusalem
1Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2Now, you son of man, will you judge, will you judge the bloody city? yes, you shall show her all her abominations. 3Then say you, Thus said the Lord GOD, The city sheds blood in the middle of it, that her time may come, and makes idols against herself to defile herself. 4You are become guilty in your blood that you have shed; and have defiled yourself in your idols which you have made; and you have caused your days to draw near, and are come even to your years: therefore have I made you a reproach to the heathen, and a mocking to all countries. 5Those that be near, and those that be far from you, shall mock you, which are infamous and much vexed. 6Behold, the princes of Israel, every one were in you to their power to shed blood. 7In you have they set light by father and mother: in the middle of you have they dealt by oppression with the stranger: in you have they vexed the fatherless and the widow. 8You have despised my holy things, and have profaned my sabbaths. 9In you are men that carry tales to shed blood: and in you they eat on the mountains: in the middle of you they commit lewdness. 10In you have they discovered their fathers' nakedness: in you have they humbled her that was set apart for pollution. 11And one has committed abomination with his neighbor's wife; and another has lewdly defiled his daughter in law; and another in you has humbled his sister, his father's daughter. 12In you have they taken gifts to shed blood; you have taken usury and increase, and you have greedily gained of your neighbors by extortion, and have forgotten me, said the Lord GOD. 13Behold, therefore I have smitten my hand at your dishonest gain which you have made, and at your blood which has been in the middle of you. 14Can your heart endure, or can your hands be strong, in the days that I shall deal with you? I the LORD have spoken it, and will do it. 15And I will scatter you among the heathen, and disperse you in the countries, and will consume your filthiness out of you. 16And you shall take your inheritance in yourself in the sight of the heathen, and you shall know that I am the LORD.
