2[YAH] says, “Now, you ‘son of Adam’, are you ready to pronounce [the death] sentence on this bloody city? Then go expose all her abominations [before] her [eyes]. We are not to judge. But we are to pronounce the verdict of the judge.
3Announce, ‘AdonaiYHVH decrees, “ 😇, [your] city sheds blood [not just at its lunatic fringe, but] at its core. [Your leaders] speed [your society's] doom! [Your city] makes idols that defile her.
4 ⭐⭐⭐ You [Jerusalem] grow increasingly guilty. [You wallow] in the blood you keep shedding. You keep defiling yourself by making and [worshipping] your demon-idols. You bait your [death] day to draw near. You've reached the end of your years. So I've made your [name] an insult to the beast-nations. Every country [on earth] mocks you. Certainly true of Washington and Los Angeles.
5Countries nearby and countries far away taunt your cursed infamy.
6Look, 😇: every leader in Israel comes to [Jerusalem] to [amass] power to shed [innocent] blood!
7 ⭐⭐⭐ In you, [Jerusalem,] leaders usurp [parental powers from] fathers and mothers. Right at your core [of political power, leaders] oppress and defraud foreigners. In you, [Jerusalem, your leaders] harass fatherless [orphans] and widows.
8You [Judeo-Christians] continually despise my holy [treasures]. You profane my sabbaths.
9 ⭐⭐⭐ In you, [Jerusalem,] dwell men who testify falsely so they can spill [innocent peoples'] blood. In you, [occultists] gobble [pigs] on hilltop-shrines. At your city-core [your leaders and people] wallow in perverse crimes.
10 ⭐⭐⭐ In you, [Jerusalem, fake Jews] strip their father[s] naked. In you, perverts ravage women sequestered during their [menstruation].
11 ⭐⭐⭐ [Every hour I see] one [of your citizens] commit disgusting [perversions] with his neighbor's wife, 😇. Another lewdly defiles his daughter-in-law. Another of you humbles his sister, his father's daughter!
12 ⭐⭐⭐ In you (Jerusalem) [leaders] take bribes to shed blood. You take [interest,] both predatory interest [that fatally stings poor people], and smaller interest charges [that debase your currency]. You amass greedy gain from your neighbors by extortion. You've forgotten me,’ rules AdonaiYHVH.
13Look out! I'm striking my hand [down on] the dishonest gain[s] you've made. I'm [avenging] the blood that you [as a political mass keep] shedding. Most of the time, murder is committed through corporate political means. You may have much more blood on your hands than you realize.
14 ⭐⭐⭐ Can your heart endure, can your hands stay strong, in the days I'm dealing to you, 😇? I YHVH foretell and actualize your future.
15 ⭐⭐⭐ I come to scatter you [hypocrites] among the beast-nations. I disperse you into [earth's] countries, to burn your filthiness out of you.
16You inherit [not riches but] wounds, while the beast-nations watch [and laugh]. Then you grasp that I am YHVH, [the Almighty who speaks your future].”
YAH Says Israel Is Like Impurity In Silver
17 Again, 😇, the word of YHVH comes [alive in] me:
18 ⭐⭐⭐ [YAH] says, “‘Son of Adam,’ the house of Israel has become dross to me. [No longer valuable] silver, they're just base brass, tin, iron and lead. [They] clog up my furnace.’
19 ⭐⭐⭐ So AdonaiYHVH decrees, ‘You've all devolved into trash-metal. So I'm heaping you into [a recycle bin] in the middle of Jerusalem.
20 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ Just like scavengers gather silver, brass, iron, lead and tin into the middle of a furnace, to bellow fire on it, to melt it, I gather you [infidels] in my anger. I leave you [screaming] in my fury until you melt. Or, ‘I blow my fury on you 'til you melt.’
21 ⭐⭐⭐ [That's] right. I come to gather you [Israeli infidels]. I blow on you in the fire of my rage. You melt right in the middle of [your burning town].
22 ⭐⭐⭐ Like silver melts in the center of a [hot] furnace, you liquefy in the middle of [your city]. Then you grasp that I, YHVH, poured out my fury upon you.’”
YAH Exposes The Conspiracy Of False Preachers
23 Again, 😇, the word of YHVH comes [alive in] me:
24 ⭐⭐⭐ [YAH] says, “‘Son of Adam,’ say to [your nation], ‘One day [soon] I come to brighten your dull and dirty [drought-stricken] country. I rain [fire] from my mouth [onto your cities].
25 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ There is a conspiracy of [false] prophets at [your society's] core. Like roaring lion[s], [your religious leaders] rip their prey, 😇. They keep devouring souls. They steal [holy] treasures and [other] valuables. They make many citizens into widows.
26 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ [Your city's] priests [and pastors] keep violating my law and profaning my holy [treasures, 😇]. They never acknowledge distinctions between sacred and profane. They never show [people] the difference between clean and unclean [foods and practices]. They hide their eyes from my Sabbaths. So blasphemy against me flows [out from them to the general population]. A perfectly biting and accurate condemnation of ‘Christian’ culture.
27 ⭐⭐⭐ At the core [of your city, 😇,] her leaders [prowl,] wolves tearing prey. They shed [innocent] blood. [They] destroy souls. [They] grab dishonest gain.
28 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ [ 😇, your city's] preachers daub its [murderous politicos] with whitewash. [The preachers] see ruinous [false visions]. [They] divine lies for [bigwigs. The priests] say, ‘AdonaiYHVH says [go right ahead and kill people for money].’ [But]YHVH never speaks to [those religionist fakers].
29 ⭐⭐⭐⭐ 😇, the mortals of [your Judeo-Christian] land cruelly violate, flay, rob [and plunder innocent people]! [The rogues commit] outrages against poor and needy [saints. The bigots] unlawfully crush foreigners.
30 ⭐⭐⭐ I search for a man among [your nation] who can rebuild the guard-wall, 😇, to stand in the breaches [in your spiritual defenses], to keep me from destroying [your nation]. But I find zero [honest leaders]. Recall the last election in the worldly nation around you. Zero leaders.
31 ⭐⭐⭐ So I, AdonaiYHVH, pour out my mouth-frothing [fury] upon [your nation, 😇]. I devour the [villains] with the fire of my rage. I repay [their crimes] upon their heads.”
