Ezekiel 5

5:1 And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a
 barber's razor, and cause [it] to pass upon thy head and upon
 thy beard: then take to thee balances to weigh, and divide the
5:2 Thou shalt burn with fire a third part in the midst of the
 city, when the days of the siege are fulfilled: and thou shalt
 take a third part, [and] smite about it with a knife: and a
 third part thou shalt scatter in the wind; and I will draw out
 a sword after them.
5:3 Thou shalt also take of them a few in number, and bind them
 in thy skirts.
5:4 Then take of them again, and cast them into the midst of the
 fire, and burn them in the fire: from which a fire shall come
 forth into all the house of Israel.
5:5 Thus saith the Lord GOD; This [is] Jerusalem: I have set it
 in the midst of the nations and countries [that are] around
5:6 And she hath changed my judgments into wickedness more than
 the nations, and my statutes more than the countries that [are]
 around her: for they have refused my judgments and my statutes,
 they have not walked in them.
5:7 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Because ye multiplied
 more than the nations that [are] around you, [and] have not
 walked in my statutes, neither have kept my judgments, neither
 have done according to the judgments of the nations that [are]
 around you:
5:8 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I, even I, [am]
 against thee, and will execute judgments in the midst of thee
 in the sight of the nations.
5:9 And I will do in thee that which I have not done, and the
 like to which I will not do any more, because of all thy
5:10 Therefore the fathers shall eat the sons in the midst of
 thee, and the sons shall eat their fathers; and I will execute
 judgments in thee, and the whole remnant of thee will I scatter
 into all the winds.
5:11 Wherefore, [as] I live, saith the Lord GOD; Surely, because
 thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things,
 and with all thy abominations, therefore I will also diminish
 [thee]; neither shall my eye spare, neither will I have any
5:12 A third part of thee shall die with the pestilence, and
 with famine shall they be consumed in the midst of thee: and a
 third part shall fall by the sword around thee; and I will
 scatter a third part into all the winds, and I will draw out a
 sword after them.
5:13 Thus shall my anger be accomplished, and I will cause my
 fury to rest upon them, and I will be comforted: and they shall
 know that I the LORD have spoken [it] in my zeal, when I have
 accomplished my fury in them.
5:14 Moreover I will make thee waste, and a reproach among the
 nations that [are] around thee, in the sight of all that pass
5:15 So it shall be a reproach and a taunt, an instruction and
 an astonishment to the nations that [are] around thee, when I
 shall execute judgments in thee in anger and in fury and in
 furious rebukes. I the LORD have spoken [it].
5:16 When I shall send upon them the evil arrows of famine,
 which shall be for [their] destruction, [and] which I will send
 to destroy you: and I will increase the famine upon you, and
 will break your staff of bread:
5:17 So will I send upon you famine and evil beasts, and they
 shall bereave thee; and pestilence and blood shall pass through
 thee; and I will bring the sword upon thee. I the LORD have
 spoken [it].
