1 Next, some elders of Israel visited me and while they were sitting with me,
Ezek 8:1 Ezek 20:1 2Kgs 6:32 Ezek 33:31 Isa 29:13 Acts 4:5 Acts 4:8
2 the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
Amos 3:7 1Kgs 14:4
3 'Son of man, these men have enshrined their foul idols in their hearts and placed the cause of their sinning right before their eyes. Why should I let myself be consulted by them?
Isa 1:15 Ezek 7:19 Ezek 14:7 Ezek 20:3 1Pet 2:8 Ezek 20:16 2Kgs 3:13
4 So speak to them; tell them this, "Lord Yahweh says this: Every member of the House of Israel who enshrines his foul idols in his heart and places the cause of his sinning right before his eyes, and who then approaches the prophet, will get this answer from me, Yahweh, as the multiplicity of his idols deserves,
Isa 66:4 Ezek 3:17-21 Ezek 14:7 Isa 3:11 1Kgs 21:20-25 2Kgs 1:16 Ezek 2:7
5 and in this way I hope to win back the hearts of the House of Israel who have all been estranged from me by their foul idols."
Isa 1:4 Zech 11:8 2Thess 2:9-11 Col 1:21 Deut 32:15-16 Eph 4:18 Ezek 14:9-10
6 'So say to the House of Israel, "The Lord Yahweh says this: Come back, turn away from your foul idols, turn your backs on all your loathsome practices;
Ezek 18:30 Isa 2:20 Isa 30:22 1Sam 7:3 Ezek 14:4 Isa 55:6-7 1Kgs 8:47-49
7 for if any member of the House of Israel -- or any foreigner living in Israel -- deserts me to enshrine his foul idols in his heart and places the cause of his sinning right before his eyes and then approaches a prophet to consult me through him, he will get his answer from me, Yahweh.
Exod 12:48 Exod 20:10 Isa 58:1-2 2Kgs 8:8-15 Ezek 14:3-4 Ezek 14:7-8 Ezek 33:30-32
8 I shall set my face against that person; I shall make him an example and a byword; I shall rid my people of him, and you will know that I am Yahweh.
Ezek 5:15 Ezek 15:7 Jer 44:11 Deut 28:37 Ezek 6:7 Isa 65:15 Lev 17:10
9 And if the prophet is seduced into saying something, I, Yahweh, shall have seduced that prophet; I shall point my finger at him and rid my people Israel of him.
Ezek 20:25 Jer 4:10 1Kgs 22:20-23 2Sam 12:11-12 2Thess 2:9-12 Ezek 16:27 Isa 5:25
10 Both will be punished for their guilt; the prophet's punishment will be the same as that of the person who consults him,
Deut 13:1-10 Deut 17:2-7 Ezek 14:4 Ezek 14:7-8 Ezek 17:18-20 Ezek 23:49 Gal 6:5
11 so that the House of Israel will never stray from me again or defile themselves again with these crimes, but be my people and I their God -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '
Ezek 37:23 Ezek 44:10 Ezek 48:11 Ezek 11:18-20 Ezek 39:22 Ezek 44:15 Heb 11:16
12 The word of Yahweh was addressed to me:
13 'Son of man, when a country sins against me by being unfaithful and I point my finger at it and destroy its supply of food, inflicting famine on it and denuding it of human and animal,
Ezek 4:16 Lev 26:26 Ezek 5:16 Ezek 14:17 Ezek 14:19 Ezek 14:21 Ezek 15:8
14 even if the three men, Noah, Danel and Job, were living in it, they would save no one but themselves by their uprightness -- declares the Lord Yahweh.
Ezek 14:20 Ezek 28:3 Jer 15:1 Dan 10:11 Gen 6:8 Gen 7:1 Job 1:1
15 Were I to unleash wild beasts on that country to rob it of its children and reduce it to a desert which no one would dare to cross because of the animals,
Ezek 5:17 Lev 26:22 Jer 15:3 1Kgs 20:36 2Kgs 17:25
16 even if these three men were living there, as I live -- declares the Lord Yahweh -- they would not be able to save either son or daughter; they alone would be saved, and the country would become a desert.
Gen 19:29 Acts 27:24 Ezek 14:14 Ezek 14:18 Ezek 14:20 Ezek 18:20 Ezek 33:11
17 Were I to bring the sword down on that country and say, "Sword, cross the country!" so as to denude it of human and animal,
Ezek 21:3-4 Lev 26:25 Ezek 5:12 Ezek 25:13 Zeph 1:3 Ezek 14:13 Jer 47:6
18 even if these three men were living there, as I live -- declares the Lord Yahweh -- they would not be able to save either son or daughter; they alone would be saved.
19 If I were to send the plague on that country and vent my fury on it by bloodshed, so as to denude it of human and animal,
Ezek 38:22 2Sam 24:15 Ezek 5:12 Ezek 7:8 Jer 14:12 1Kgs 8:37 2Chr 6:28
20 even if Noah and Danel and Job were living there, as I live -- declares the Lord Yahweh -- they would be able to save neither son nor daughter, only themselves by their uprightness.
Ezek 14:14 1John 2:29 1John 3:7 1John 3:10 Acts 10:35 Ezek 14:16 Ezek 18:20
21 'The Lord Yahweh says this, "Even if I send my four dreadful scourges on Jerusalem-sword, famine, wild beasts and plague -- to denude it of human and animal,
Ezek 5:17 Ezek 33:27 Ezek 14:13 Ezek 14:15 Ezek 14:17 Ezek 14:19 Amos 4:6-12
22 even so, there will be a remnant left, a few men and women who come through; when they come to you and you see their conduct and actions, you will take comfort in spite of the disaster which I have brought on Jerusalem, in spite of all I have brought on her.
Ezek 20:43 Ezek 12:16 2Chr 36:20 Deut 4:31 Ezek 6:8-10 Ezek 16:54 Ezek 16:63
23 They will comfort you, when you see their conduct and actions, and so you will know that I have not done in vain all I have done to her -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '
Jer 22:8-9 Dan 9:7 Dan 9:14 Deut 8:2 Ezek 8:6-18 Ezek 9:8-9 Gen 18:22-33
