Ezekiel Spirit-Flies To Denounce Jerusalem
1 Paranormal Phenomena Then [YAH's] spirit lifts me up. [He flies] me to the east gate of YHVH's temple, ๐Ÿ˜‡. I look eastward. At the gate-entrance I see 25 men. Among them I see JaazaniYah {Heard-By-YAH} (the son of Azur {Helpful}), and PelatiYah {YAH-Rescues} (the son of BenaYAH {YAH-Built}), the leaders of [Judea's] people.
2 Usurpance / Abuse Of Authority Then [YAH] says to me, โ€œโ€˜Son of Adam,โ€™ these [leading hypocrites] devise deadly schemes. [They] issue destructive counsel in this city.
3 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion These [liars] say, โ€˜[Judgment] lies far off. So let's build houses. This city stands like an [iron] cauldron. We're cuts of steak [safe inside].โ€™
4 Missions/Outreach So prophesy against the [hypocrites]. Speak their future, son of Adam!โ€
5 YAH (the Most High Creator) Then the Spirit of YHVH falls upon me, ๐Ÿ˜‡. He says to me, โ€œProclaim, โ€˜YHVH decrees: [I know] what you're saying, house of Israel. I know each and every thought that comes into your mind.
6 Murder You [bigshots] keep multiplying murdered [corpses] in this city. You keep filling the streets with dead bodies!โ€™
7 Murder So Adonai YHVH says, โ€˜Your murder victims, whom you laid in the middle of town, they are the [protected] flesh in this iron-pot city. I soon snatch you [murderers] up out of the middle of your [supposedly impregnable fortress].
8 War You're [more] in awe of the sword [than you're in awe of me]. So I [swing] a sword on you,โ€ warns Adonai YHVH.
9 Punishment โ€œI grab you out of the middle of your [pot]. I hand you into the fists of strangers. [I] execute judgments throughout your [populace].
10 Punishment You come to fall by [enemy] sword. When I judge your [survivors] at Israel's border [detention camps], you finally realize that I am YHVH {The-Eternal-Creator}.
11 Punishment This city isn't your cauldron-fortress. And you [bigwigs] aren't meat safe inside. I [come to] punish you [evil leaders] throughout Israel's territory.
12 Counterfeit Judeo-Christian Religion In the future, you see that I am YHVH {The-Omnipresent-Power}. You've never walked out my statutes. You've never executed my judgments. You just copied the actions of the beast-nations surrounding you.โ€
Ezekiel Kills A Religionist With YAH's Word
13 Paranormal Phenomena As I prophesy, ๐Ÿ˜‡, [the hypocrite-leader] PelatiYah {YAH's-Rescuer} the son of BenaYAH {YAH-Built} [falls over] dead! So I fall down on my face. I shriek, screaming, calling, [moaning,] โ€œOh Adonai YHVH! Will you completely destroy every last scrap of Israel?โ€
14 Yah's Word Again, ๐Ÿ˜‡, the word of YHVH comes [alive in] me.
YAH Promises To Return Israel To The Exiles
15 Crime [YAH] says, โ€œโ€˜Son of Adam,โ€™ the [hypocrites] who squat in Jerusalem keep slandering your relatives, your brothers, your kinsmen-redeemers, and the whole House of Israel. [The jerks] claim, โ€˜The [Israeli] exiles [in Babylon] lie far from YHVH's [protection]. YHVH gave us the [promised] land to own.โ€™
Wolves in sheep's clothing keep stealing the promised land from its rightful heirs (YAH's humble people).
16 Yah's Protection So proclaim, โ€˜Adonai YHVH decrees, โ€œAlthough I hurl [Judeo-Christian exiles] far off into the beast-nations, โ€” although I scatter them among [many] countries, I still [form] little sanctuaries [protecting them] in the lands wherever they go.โ€
17 Redemption So say, โ€˜Adonai YHVH promises, โ€œI always eventually gather you [repentant Israeli exiles] from [among] the [world's] minions. I come to re-assemble you from the countries where [invaders] scattered you. I give the land of Israel [back] to you.
18 Redemption In the end, ๐Ÿ˜‡, [repentant exiles] return [home] to rid [the promised land] of all the filth and all the abominations in it.
19 Rebirth *I give [my people] one heart. I put a new Spirit in you [repenters]. I excise the petrified heart[s] from [saints'] bodies. I give them fresh [living] heart[s].
20 Obedience So [my people come to] walk in My Laws, and guard my decrees, and live them. Finally the [Hebrews] become my populace, and I their Sovereign.
21 Punishment But as for everyone whose heart walks in consent to [the hypocrites'] filthy abominations, I boomerang their habits upon their own heads,โ€ warns Adonai YHVH.
YAH's Spirit Flies Ezekiel Back To Babylon
22 Spiritual Vision Suddenly, ๐Ÿ˜‡, the gyro-cherubim lift up their wings. So the wheels [lift] under the [cherubs]. The glory of the Elohim of Israel [shines down from] above them.
23 Paranormal Phenomena Then, ๐Ÿ˜‡, YHVH's glory rises up from [Jerusalem's] core. [The supernatural splendor sails to] stand on the mountain east of the city.
24 Paranormal Phenomena *Then [a] spirit lifts me up, ๐Ÿ˜‡. It brings me [~650km northeast] into Babylon via a vision [powered by] the Spirit of Elohim. I see [my fellow] captive [Israeli] exiles. So I leave the vision [of Jerusalem] I'd been experiencing.
25 Missions/Outreach So I tell the exiles in captivity all the [visions] YHVH showed me.
