Ezekiel 21:3Wrench

BACK NEXT

Announce to [wicked inhabitants of] the land of Israel, โ€˜YHVH decrees:
โ€œLook: I'm against you. I'm drawing my sword out of its sheath.
I'm slicing down to [separate] the upright [saints] from the villains.

Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion

Note: #3772 karath means to cut, separate, divide.
It's irresponsible to translate 'karath' to mean that YAH fails to distinguish between righteous and wicked people.
