Wicked leaders to be judged

11:1 Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the east gate of YHWH (יהוה)'S house, which looketh eastward: and Hinnei at the door of the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Ya'azanyah Ben Azur, and P'latyah Ben Benayah, princes of the people.

11:2 Then said he unto me:

Ben Adam, these [are] the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:

11:3 Which say, [It is] not near; let us build houses: this [city is] the caldron, and we [be] the flesh.

11:4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O Ben Adam.

11:5 And the Ruach of YHWH (יהוה) fell upon me, and said unto me:

Speak; Thus saith YHWH (יהוה); Thus have ye said, O Beit Yisrael: for I know the things that come into your mind, [every one of] them.

11:6 Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the streets thereof with the slain.

11:7 Therefore thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):

Your slain whom ye have laid in the midst of it, they [are] the flesh, and this [city is] the caldron: but I will bring you forth out of the midst of it.

11:8 Ye have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).

11:9 And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you into the hands of strangers, and will execute mishpatim among you.

11:10 Ye shall fall by the sword; I will judge you in the border of Yisrael; and ye shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה).

11:11 This [city] shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; [but] I will judge you in the border of Yisrael:

11:12 And ye shall know that Ani YHWH (יהוה): for ye have not walked in My chukkot, neither executed my mishpatim, but have done after the manners of the heathen that [are] round about you.

11:13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, that P'latyah Ben Benayah died. Then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה)! wilt thou make a full end of the remnant of Yisrael?

Promise of restoration of remnant of Yisrael to the land

11:14 Again Dvar YHWH (יהוה) came unto me, saying:

11:15 Ben Adam, thy brethren, [even] thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the Beit Yisrael wholly, [are] they unto whom the inhabitants of Yerushalayim have said, Get you far from YHWH (יהוה): unto us is this land given in possession.

11:16 Therefore say, Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):

Although I have cast them far off among the nation, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.

11:17 Therefore say, Thus saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה):

I will even gather you from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the eretz Yisrael.

11:18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the detestable thereof from thence.

11:19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within you; and I will take the stony heart out of their flesh, and will give them an heart of flesh:

11:20 That they may walk in My chukkot, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and they shall be My people, and I will be their Elohim (אלהים).

11:21 But [as for them] whose heart walketh after the heart of their detestable things and their detestable, I will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith Adonay (אדני) YHWH (יהוה).

11:22 Then did the Keruvim lift up their wings, and the wheels beside them; and the Kavod Elohim (אלהים) of Yisrael [was] over them above.

11:23 And the Kavod YHWH (יהוה) went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which [is] on the east side of the city.

11:24 Afterwards the spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Ruach Elohim (אלהים) into Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me.

11:25 Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that YHWH (יהוה) had shewed me.
