1 Then [YAH] cries in my ears with a loud voice. He says, “The [spiritual] authorities [who rule over] this city draw near! Every ‘man’ [carries] his destroying weapon in his hand!” Angels are sometimes referred to as ‘men.’
2 Then, 😇, I see 6 [supernatural beings manifesting like] mortals approach [Jerusalem's temple] from its north-facing higher-gate road. Each of the  wield an instrument of shattering in his hand. One man among them, clothed in linen, holds a writer's inkhorn by his side. The [men] enter [the temple]. They come to stand beside its brass altar.
3 The glory of the Elohim of Israel rises up from its place on the [Ark Of The Covenant's] cherubim. [The glory ascends] to the top of the Temple's [doorway]. Then [YHVH] calls to the linen-clothed man who holds the writer's inkhorn by his side.
4YHVH says to the [writing-man-angel], “Go throughout every part of the city of Jerusalem. Set a mark upon the foreheads of the people who cry and groan over all the abominations [people] commit there.” Do you cry and groan over the abominations committed in your country? Do you even know what YHVH condemns as abominations? Here are a few: paying or receiving interest on loans, national I.D. numbers, believers swearing binding oaths, etc.
5 And to the other [5 angels], I hear [YAH] say, “Follow the [scribe-angel] through the city. Smite [its infidels]. Don't let your eye spare [any sinner]. Take no pity [on any hypocrites]!
6—[Angels,] strike to kill old and young, including [teenage] girls, little children and women. But never come near any man upon whom lies [My] mark. Begin at My sanctuary.” So, 😇, the [angelic executioners] begin by [whacking] the [evil] elders in front of the temple!
7[Elohim shouts] to [the angelic executioners], “Defile the temple! Fill [its] courts with the [wicked] slain. Go on!” So the [soldier-angels stomp] out [of Jerusalem's temple]. They murder [villains] in the city.
8 Later, as the [angels continue to] slay [Jerusalem's evil people], I [Ezekiel] stand alone [in the temple]. I fall upon my face, crying, pleading, “Oh, AdonaiYHVH! Will you destroy all the rest of Israel [after] you pour out your fury upon Jerusalem?”
9 Then [YAH] responds to me, “The house[s] of Israel and Judah wreak unimaginably twisted ruin. Their land [drips] full of blood. Their city brims full of perverted-justice. They say, ‘YHVH has forsaken the earth,’ and ‘YHVH sees nothing.’
10So I cannot withhold my [judging] eye. I can't show pity [to the murderers]. I must repay their [crimes] upon their head[s].”
11 Then, 😇, I see the angel-man clothed with linen carrying the inkhorn by his side. He reports the [damage], saying, “I have achieved the commands you [issued to] me, [YHVH].”
