    20:1 And it came to pass in the seventh 7637 year 8141, in the fifth 2549 [month], the tenth 6218 [day] of the month 2320, [that] certain 582 of the elders 2205 of Israel 3478 came 935 8804 to enquire 1875 8800 of the LORD 3068, and sat 3427 8799 before 6440 me.

    20:2 Then came the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 unto me, saying 559 8800,

    20:3 Son 1121 of man 120, speak 1696 8761 unto the elders 2205 of Israel 3478, and say 559 8804 unto them, Thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; Are ye come 935 8802 to enquire 1875 8800 of me? [As] I live 2416, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069, I will not be enquired 1875 8735 of by you.

    20:4 Wilt thou judge 8199 8799 them, son 1121 of man 120, wilt thou judge 8199 8799 [them]? cause them to know 3045 8685 the abominations 8441 of their fathers 1:(Wilt…: or, Wilt thou plead for them)

    20:5 And say 559 8804 unto them, Thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; In the day 3117 when I chose 977 8800 Israel 3478, and lifted up 5375 8799 mine hand 3027 unto the seed 2233 of the house 1004 of Jacob 3290, and made myself known 3045 8735 unto them in the land 776 of Egypt 4714, when I lifted 5375 8799 up mine hand 3027 unto them, saying 559 8800, I [am] the LORD 3068 your God 430;(lifted…: or, sware)

    20:6 In the day 3117 [that] I lifted up 5375 8804 mine hand 3027 unto them, to bring them forth 3318 8687 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714 into a land 776 that I had espied 8446 8804 for them, flowing 2100 8802 with milk 2461 and honey 1706, which [is] the glory 6643 of all lands 776:

    20:7 Then said 559 8799 I unto them, Cast ye away 7993 8685 every man 376 the abominations 8251 of his eyes 5869, and defile 2930 8691 not yourselves with the idols 1544 of Egypt 4714: I [am] the LORD 3068 your God 430.

    20:8 But they rebelled 4784 8686 against me, and would 14 8804 not hearken 8085 8800 unto me: they did not every man 376 cast away 7993 8689 the abominations 8251 of their eyes 5869, neither did they forsake 5800 8804 the idols 1544 of Egypt 4714: then I said 559 8799, I will pour out 8210 8800 my fury 2534 upon them, to accomplish 3615 8763 my anger 639 against them in the midst 8432 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714.

    20:9 But I wrought 6213 8799 for my name's 8034 sake, that it should not be polluted 2490 8736 before 5869 the heathen 1471, among 8432 whom they [were], in whose sight 5869 I made myself known 3045 8738 unto them, in bringing them forth 3318 8687 out of the land 776 of Egypt 4714.

    20:10 Wherefore I caused them to go forth 3318 8686 out of the land 776 of Egypt 4714, and brought 935 8686 them into the wilderness 4057.

    20:11 And I gave 5414 8799 them my statutes 2708, and shewed 3045 8689 them my judgments 4941, which [if] a man 120 do 6213 8799, he shall even live 2425 8804 in them.(shewed…: Heb. made them to know)

    20:12 Moreover also I gave 5414 8804 them my sabbaths 7676, to be a sign 226 between me and them, that they might know 3045 8800 that I [am] the LORD 3068 that sanctify 6942 8764 them.

    20:13 But the house 1004 of Israel 3478 rebelled 4784 8686 against me in the wilderness 4057: they walked 1980 8804 not in my statutes 2708, and they despised 3988 8804 my judgments 4941, which [if] a man 120 do 6213 8799, he shall even live 2425 8804 in them; and my sabbaths 7676 they greatly 3966 polluted 2490 8765: then I said 559 8799, I would pour out 8210 8800 my fury 2534 upon them in the wilderness 4057, to consume 3615 8763 them.

    20:14 But I wrought 6213 8799 for my name's 8034 sake, that it should not be polluted 2490 8736 before 5869 the heathen 1471, in whose sight 5869 I brought them out 3318 8689.

    20:15 Yet also I lifted up 5375 8804 my hand 3027 unto them in the wilderness 4057, that I would not bring 935 8687 them into the land 776 which I had given 5414 8804 [them], flowing 2100 8802 with milk 2461 and honey 1706, which [is] the glory 6643 of all lands 776;

    20:16 Because they despised 3988 8804 my judgments 4941, and walked 1980 8804 not in my statutes 2708, but polluted 2490 8765 my sabbaths 7676: for their heart 3820 went 1980 8802 after 310 their idols 1544.

    20:17 Nevertheless mine eye 5869 spared 2347 8799 them from destroying 7843 8763 them, neither did I make 6213 8804 an end 3617 of them in the wilderness 4057.

    20:18 But I said 559 8799 unto their children 1121 in the wilderness 4057, Walk 3212 8799 ye not in the statutes 2706 of your fathers 1, neither observe 8104 8799 their judgments 4941, nor defile 2930 8691 yourselves with their idols 1544:

    20:19 I [am] the LORD 3068 your God 430; walk 3212 8798 in my statutes 2708, and keep 8104 8798 my judgments 4941, and do 6213 8798 them;

    20:20 And hallow 6942 8761 my sabbaths 7676; and they shall be a sign 226 between me and you, that ye may know 3045 8800 that I [am] the LORD 3068 your God 430.

    20:21 Notwithstanding the children 1121 rebelled 4784 8686 against me: they walked 1980 8804 not in my statutes 2708, neither kept 8104 8804 my judgments 4941 to do 6213 8800 them, which [if] a man 120 do 6213 8799, he shall even live 2425 8804 in them; they polluted 2490 8765 my sabbaths 7676: then I said 559 8799, I would pour out 8210 8800 my fury 2534 upon them, to accomplish 3615 8763 my anger 639 against them in the wilderness 4057.

    20:22 Nevertheless I withdrew 7725 8689 mine hand 3027, and wrought 6213 8799 for my name's 8034 sake, that it should not be polluted 2490 8736 in the sight 5869 of the heathen 1471, in whose sight 5869 I brought them forth 3318 8689.

    20:23 I lifted up 5375 8804 mine hand 3027 unto them also in the wilderness 4057, that I would scatter 6327 8687 them among the heathen 1471, and disperse 2219 8763 them through the countries 776;

    20:24 Because they had not executed 6213 8804 my judgments 4941, but had despised 3988 8804 my statutes 2708, and had polluted 2490 8765 my sabbaths 7676, and their eyes 5869 were after 310 their fathers' 1 idols 1544.

    20:25 Wherefore I gave 5414 8804 them also statutes 2706 [that were] not good 2896, and judgments 4941 whereby they should not live 2421 8799;

    20:26 And I polluted 2930 8762 them in their own gifts 4979, in that they caused to pass through 5674 8687 [the fire] all that openeth 6363 the womb 7356, that I might make them desolate 8074 8686, to the end that they might know 3045 8799 that I [am] the LORD 3068.

    20:27 Therefore, son 1121 of man 120, speak 1696 8761 unto the house 1004 of Israel 3478, and say 559 8804 unto them, Thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; Yet in this your fathers 1 have blasphemed 1442 8765 me, in that they have committed 4603 8800 a trespass 4604 against me.(committed…: Heb. trespassed a trespass)

    20:28 [For] when I had brought 935 8686 them into the land 776, [for] the which I lifted up 5375 8804 mine hand 3027 to give 5414 8800 it to them, then they saw 7200 8799 every high 7311 8802 hill 1389, and all the thick 5687 trees 6086, and they offered 2076 8799 there their sacrifices 2077, and there they presented 5414 8799 the provocation 3708 of their offering 7133: there also they made 7760 8799 their sweet 5207 savour 7381, and poured out 5258 8686 there their drink offerings 5262.

    20:29 Then I said 559 8799 unto them, What [is] the high place 1116 whereunto ye go 935 8802? And the name 8034 thereof is called 7121 8735 Bamah 1117 unto this day 3117.(I said…: or, I told them what the high place was, or, Bamah)

    20:30 Wherefore say 559 8798 unto the house 1004 of Israel 3478, Thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; Are ye polluted 2930 8737 after the manner 1870 of your fathers 1? and commit ye whoredom 2181 8802 after 310 their abominations 8251?

    20:31 For when ye offer 5375 8800 your gifts 4979, when ye make your sons 1121 to pass through 5674 8687 the fire 784, ye pollute 2930 8737 yourselves with all your idols 1544, even unto this day 3117: and shall I be enquired 1875 8735 of by you, O house 1004 of Israel 3478? [As] I live 2416, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069, I will not be enquired 1875 8735 of by you.

    20:32 And that which cometh 5927 8802 into your mind 7307 shall not be at all, that ye say 559 8802, We will be 1961 8799 as the heathen 1471, as the families 4940 of the countries 776, to serve 8334 8763 wood 6086 and stone 68.

    20:33 [As] I live 2416, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069, surely with a mighty 2389 hand 3027, and with a stretched out 5186 8803 arm 2220, and with fury 2534 poured out 8210 8803, will I rule 4427 8799 over you:

    20:34 And I will bring you out 3318 8689 from the people 5971, and will gather 6908 8765 you out of the countries 776 wherein ye are scattered 6327 8738, with a mighty 2389 hand 3027, and with a stretched out 5186 8803 arm 2220, and with fury 2534 poured out 8210 8803.

    20:35 And I will bring 935 8689 you into the wilderness 4057 of the people 5971, and there will I plead 8199 8738 with you face 6440 to face 6440.

    20:36 Like as I pleaded 8199 8738 with your fathers 1 in the wilderness 4057 of the land 776 of Egypt 4714, so will I plead 8199 8735 with you, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069.

    20:37 And I will cause you to pass 5674 8689 under the rod 7626, and I will bring 935 8689 you into the bond 4562 of the covenant 1285:(bond: or, delivering)

    20:38 And I will purge out 1305 8804 from among you the rebels 4775 8802, and them that transgress 6586 8802 against me: I will bring them forth 3318 8686 out of the country 776 where they sojourn 4033, and they shall not enter 935 8799 into the land 127 of Israel 3478: and ye shall know 3045 8804 that I [am] the LORD 3068.

    20:39 As for you, O house 1004 of Israel 3478, thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; Go 3212 8798 ye, serve 5647 8798 ye every one 376 his idols 1544, and hereafter 310 [also], if ye will not hearken 8085 8802 unto me: but pollute 2490 8762 ye my holy 6944 name 8034 no more with your gifts 4979, and with your idols 1544.

    20:40 For in mine holy 6944 mountain 2022, in the mountain 2022 of the height 4791 of Israel 3478, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069, there shall all the house 1004 of Israel 3478, all of them in the land 776, serve 5647 8799 me: there will I accept 7521 8799 them, and there will I require 1875 8799 your offerings 8641, and the firstfruits 7225 of your oblations 4864, with all your holy things 6944.(firstfruits: or, chief)

    20:41 I will accept 7521 8799 you with your sweet 5207 savour 7381, when I bring you out 3318 8687 from the people 5971, and gather 6908 8765 you out of the countries 776 wherein ye have been scattered 6327 8738; and I will be sanctified 6942 8738 in you before 5869 the heathen 1471.(sweet…: Heb. savour of rest)

    20:42 And ye shall know 3045 8804 that I [am] the LORD 3068, when I shall bring 935 8687 you into the land 127 of Israel 3478, into the country 776 [for] the which I lifted up 5375 8804 mine hand 3027 to give 5414 8800 it to your fathers 1.

    20:43 And there shall ye remember 2142 8804 your ways 1870, and all your doings 5949, wherein ye have been defiled 2930 8738; and ye shall lothe 6962 8738 yourselves in your own sight 6440 for all your evils 7451 that ye have committed 6213 8804.

    20:44 And ye shall know 3045 8804 that I [am] the LORD 3068, when I have wrought 6213 8800 with you for my name's 8034 sake, not according to your wicked 7451 ways 1870, nor according to your corrupt 7843 8737 doings 5949, O ye house 1004 of Israel 3478, saith 5002 8803 the Lord 136 GOD 3069.

    20:45 Moreover the word 1697 of the LORD 3068 came unto me, saying 559 8800,

    20:46 Son 1121 of man 120, set 7760 8798 thy face 6440 toward 1870 the south 8486, and drop 5197 8685 [thy word] toward the south 1864, and prophesy 5012 8734 against the forest 3293 of the south 5045 field 7704;

    20:47 And say 559 8804 to the forest 3293 of the south 5045, Hear 8085 8798 the word 1697 of the LORD 3068; Thus saith 559 8804 the Lord 136 GOD 3069; Behold, I will kindle 3341 8688 a fire 784 in thee, and it shall devour 398 8804 every green 3892 tree 6086 in thee, and every dry 3002 tree 6086: the flaming 3852 flame 7957 shall not be quenched 3518 8799, and all faces 6440 from the south 5045 to the north 6828 shall be burned 6866 8738 therein.

    20:48 And all flesh 1320 shall see 7200 8804 that I the LORD 3068 have kindled 1197 8765 it: it shall not be quenched 3518 8799.

    20:49 Then said 559 8799 I, Ah 162 Lord 136 GOD 3069! they say 559 8802 of me, Doth he not speak 4911 8764 parables 4912?
