7:1 Moreover Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came unto me, saying:
7:2 Also, thou Ben Adam, thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה) unto the eretz Yisrael; An end, the end is come upon the arba'ah kanaph ha eretz (four corners of the land).
7:3 Now [is] the end [come] upon thee, and I will send Mine anger upon thee, and will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense upon thee all thine detestable.
7:4 And Mine eye shall not spare thee, neither will I have pity: but I will recompense thy ways upon thee, and thine detestable shall be in the midst of thee: and ye shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה).
7:5 Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):
An evil, an only evil, Hinnei, is come.
7:6 An end is come, the end is come: it watcheth for thee; Hinnei, it is come.
7:7 The morning is come unto thee, O thou that dwellest in the land: the time is come, the day of trouble [is] near, and not the sounding again of the mountains.
7:8 Now will I shortly pour out my fury upon thee, and accomplish mine anger upon thee: and I will judge thee according to thy ways, and will recompense thee for all thine detestable.
7:9 And Mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine detestable [that] are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה) that smiteth.
7:10 Hinnei the day, Hinnei, it is come: the morning is gone forth; the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
7:11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them [shall remain], nor of their multitude, nor of any of theirs: neither [shall there be] wailing for them.
7:12 The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath [is] upon all the multitude thereof.
7:13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold, although they were yet alive: for the vision [is] touching the whole multitude thereof, [which] shall not return; neither shall any strengthen himself in the iniquity of his life.
7:14 They have taka (blown) the Takoa (trumpet), even to make all ready; but none goeth to the battle: for my wrath [is] upon all the multitude thereof.
7:15 The sword [is] without, and the pestilence and the famine within: he that [is] in the field shall die with the sword; and he that [is] in the city, famine and pestilence shall devour him.
7:16 But they that escape of them shall escape, and shall be on the mountains like doves of the valleys, all of them mourning, every one for his iniquity.
7:17 All hands shall be feeble, and all knees shall be weak [as] mayim.
7:18 They shall also gird [themselves] with sackcloth, and horror shall cover them; and shame [shall be] upon all faces, and baldness upon all their heads.
7:19 They shall cast their kesef (silver) in the streets, and their zahav (gold) shall be niddah (unclean) : their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the Yom Evrat (wrath) YHWH (יהוה): they shall not satisfy their nefashot, neither fill their bowels: because it is the stumblingblock of their iniquity.
7:20 As for the beauty of his ornament, he set it in majesty: but they made the images of their detestable [and] of their detestable things therein: therefore have I set it far from them.
7:21 And I will give it into the hands of the strangers for a prey, and to the wicked of the earth for a spoil; and they shall pollute it.
7:22 My face will I turn also from them, and they shall pollute My Tzafan (hide up treasure): for the robbers shall enter into it, and defile it.
7:23 Make a chain: for the land is full of bloody crimes, and the city is full of violence.
7:24 Wherefore I will bring the worst of the heathen, and they shall possess their houses: I will also make the pomp of the strong to cease; and their set apart places shall be defiled.
7:25 Destruction cometh; and they shall seek Shalom, and [there shall be] none.
7:26 Mischief shall come upon mischief, and rumour shall be upon rumour; then shall they seek a vision of the Navi; but the law shall perish from the kohen, and counsel from the ancients.
7:27 The king shall mourn, and the prince shall be clothed with desolation, and the hands of the people of the land shall be troubled: I will do unto them after their way, and according to their deserts will I judge them; and they shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה).
