Ezekiel 9
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1And he called in my ear with a loud voice and said: “Come, avengers of the city, and each man with the weapons of his vengeance in his hand!” 2And I saw six men coming from the way of the gate upper that looks to the north, and each man with weapons of his vengeance in his hand, and one man among them was wearing fine linen and was bound with sapphire around his loins, and they came and they stood on the side of the altar of brass

3And the glory of the God of Israel went up from the Cherub who was standing at the corner of the house, and he called to the mighty man that wore fine linen and was bound about the loins with sapphire 4And LORD JEHOVAH said to him: “Go through within the city, within Jerusalem, and make a mark on the forehead of the men who groan and are tormented because of all the abominations and the evils that are done within her” 5And to those who were with him he said: “Pass before my eyes within the city after me and destroy, and your eyes shall not have pity and you shall not show mercy 6And the elders and the young men and the virgin girls and the boys and the women kill with destruction, and every man that has a mark upon him you shall not touch, and begin from my holy place.” And they began with the Elders, the men who had been standing before the house 7And he said to them: “Defile the house and fill the courts with the slain. Go out. Kill in the city! 8And when they had destroyed them, I was left, and I fell on my face and I wailed in a loud voice, and I said, Oh, LORD OF LORDS, do you destroy everyone who is left from Israel, and do you pour out your wrath on Jerusalem?

9And he said to me: “The evil of the house of Israel and of Yehuda is very great, and the land is filled with blood, and the city is filled with deceit, and they have said, ‘LORD JEHOVAH has forsaken the land, and LORD JEHOVAH does not see us!’ 10And I shall not have pity upon them and I shall not be merciful. I shall repay their ways on their heads”

11And I saw the mighty man who was wearing fine linen, who answered and said: “I have done just as you have commanded me”
