Ezekiel 5-8

Verse of note:

I set this Jerusalem in the midst of nations, with countries round about her. But she rebelled against My rules and My laws, acting more wickedly than the nations and the countries round about her; she rejected my rules and disobeyed my laws. Assuredly, thus said the Lord God: Because you have outdone the nations that are round about you—you have not obeyed My laws or followed My rules, nor have you observed the rules of the nations round about you—assuredly, thus said the Lord God: I, in turn, am going to deal with you, and I will execute judgments in your midst in the sight of the nations. On account of all your abominations, I will do among you what I have never done, and the like of which I will never do again.

Verse of note:

Yet I will leave a remnant, in that some of you shall escape the sword among the nations and be scattered through the lands. And those of you that escape will remember Me among the nations where they have been taken captive, how I was brokenhearted through their faithless hearts which turned away from Me, and through their eyes which lusted after their fetishes. And they shall loathe themselves for all the evil they committed and for all their abominable deeds. Then they shall realize it was not without cause that I the Lord resolved to bring this evil upon them.

Verse of note:

Then he brought me to the entrance of the court; and I looked, and there was a hole in the wall, He said to me, “Mortal, break through the wall”; so I broke through the wall and found an entrance. And He said to me, “Enter and see the vile abominations that they are practicing here.” I entered and looked, and there all detestable forms of creeping things and beasts and all the fetishes of the House of Israel were depicted over the entire wall. Before them stood seventy men, elders of the House of Israel, with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan standing in their midst. Everyone had a censer in his hand, and a thick cloud of incense smoke ascended. Again He spoke to me, “O mortal, have you seen what the elders of the House of Israel are doing in the darkness, everyone in his image-covered chamber?
