as the people cometh

Then came certain of the elders of Israel to me; and sat before me.
Ezekiel 20:1-32
1
In the seventh year, in the fifth month, on the tenth day of the month, certain of the elders of Israel came to inquire of the LORD, and sat before me.
2
And the word of the LORD came to me:
3
"Son of man, speak to the elders of Israel, and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD, Is it to inquire of me that you come? As I live, says the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.
4
Will you judge them, son of man, will you judge them? Then let them know the abominations of their fathers,
5
and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: On the day when I chose Israel, I swore to the seed of the house of Jacob, making myself known to them in the land of Egypt, I swore to them, saying, I am the LORD your God.
6
On that day I swore to them that I would bring them out of the land of Egypt into a land that I had searched out for them, a land flowing with milk and honey, the most glorious of all lands.
7
And I said to them, Cast away the detestable things your eyes feast on, every one of you, and do not defile yourselves with the idols of Egypt; I am the LORD your God.
8
But they rebelled against me and would not listen to me; they did not every man cast away the detestable things their eyes feasted on, nor did they forsake the idols of Egypt. "Then I thought I would pour out my wrath upon them and spend my anger against them in the midst of the land of Egypt.
9
But I acted for the sake of my name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations among whom they dwelt, in whose sight I made myself known to them in bringing them out of the land of Egypt.
10
So I led them out of the land of Egypt and brought them into the wilderness.
11
I gave them my statutes and showed them my ordinances, by whose observance man shall live.
12
Moreover I gave them my sabbaths, as a sign between me and them, that they might know that I the LORD sanctify them.
13
But the house of Israel rebelled against me in the wilderness; they did not walk in my statutes but rejected my ordinances, by whose observance man shall live; and my sabbaths they greatly profaned. "Then I thought I would pour out my wrath upon them in the wilderness, to make a full end of them.
14
But I acted for the sake of my name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations, in whose sight I had brought them out.
15
Moreover I swore to them in the wilderness that I would not bring them into the land which I had given them, a land flowing with milk and honey, the most glorious of all lands,
16
because they rejected my ordinances and did not walk in my statutes, and profaned my sabbaths; for their heart went after their idols.
17
Nevertheless my eye spared them, and I did not destroy them or make a full end of them in the wilderness.
18
"And I said to their children in the wilderness, Do not walk in the statutes of your fathers, nor observe their ordinances, nor defile yourselves with their idols.
19
I the LORD am your God; walk in my statutes, and be careful to observe my ordinances,
20
and hallow my sabbaths that they may be a sign between me and you, that you may know that I the LORD am your God.
21
But the children rebelled against me; they did not walk in my statutes, and were not careful to observe my ordinances, by whose observance man shall live; they profaned my sabbaths. "Then I thought I would pour out my wrath upon them and spend my anger against them in the wilderness.
22
But I withheld my hand, and acted for the sake of my name, that it should not be profaned in the sight of the nations, in whose sight I had brought them out.
23
Moreover I swore to them in the wilderness that I would scatter them among the nations and disperse them through the countries,
24
because they had not executed my ordinances, but had rejected my statutes and profaned my sabbaths, and their eyes were set on their fathers' idols.
25
Moreover I gave them statutes that were not good and ordinances by which they could not have life;
26
and I defiled them through their very gifts in making them offer by fire all their first-born, that I might horrify them; I did it that they might know that I am the LORD.
27
"Therefore, son of man, speak to the house of Israel and say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: In this again your fathers blasphemed me, by dealing treacherously with me.
28
For when I had brought them into the land which I swore to give them, then wherever they saw any high hill or any leafy tree, there they offered their sacrifices and presented the provocation of their offering; there they sent up their soothing odors, and there they poured out their drink offerings.
29
(I said to them, What is the high place to which you go? So its name is called Bamah to this day.)
30
Wherefore say to the house of Israel, Thus says the Lord GOD: Will you defile yourselves after the manner of your fathers and go astray after their detestable things?
31
When you offer your gifts and sacrifice your sons by fire, you defile yourselves with all your idols to this day. And shall I be inquired of by you, O house of Israel? As I live, says the Lord GOD, I will not be inquired of by you.
32

2
Azari'ah the son of Hoshai'ah and Joha'nan the son of Kare'ah and all the insolent men said to Jeremiah, "You are telling a lie. The LORD our God did not send you to say, `Do not go to Egypt to live there';
3
but Baruch the son of Neri'ah has set you against us, to deliver us into the hand of the Chalde'ans, that they may kill us or take us into exile in Babylon."
4
So Joha'nan the son of Kare'ah and all the commanders of the forces and all the people did not obey the voice of the LORD, to remain in the land of Judah.
5
But Joha'nan the son of Kare'ah and all the commanders of the forces took all the remnant of Judah who had returned to live in the land of Judah from all the nations to which they had been driven--
6
the men, the women, the children, the princesses, and every person whom Nebu'zarad'an the captain of the guard had left with Gedali'ah the son of Ahi'kam, son of Shaphan; also Jeremiah the prophet and Baruch the son of Neri'ah.
7

25
and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat upon that house, but it did not fall, because it had been founded on the rock.
26
And every one who hears these words of mine and does not do them will be like a foolish man who built his house upon the sand;
27
and the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and beat against that house, and it fell; and great was the fall of it."

24
for he observes himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like.

34
And as for the prophet, priest, or one of the people who says, `The burden of the LORD,' I will punish that man and his household.
35
Thus shall you say, every one to his neighbor and every one to his brother, `What has the LORD answered?' or `What has the LORD spoken?'
36
But `the burden of the LORD' you shall mention no more, for the burden is every man's own word, and you pervert the words of the living God, the LORD of hosts, our God.
37
Thus you shall say to the prophet, `What has the LORD answered you?' or `What has the LORD spoken?'
38
But if you say, `The burden of the LORD,' thus says the LORD, `Because you have said these words, "The burden of the LORD," when I sent to you, saying, "You shall not say, `The burden of the LORD,'"

19
And I will say to my soul, Soul, you have ample goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.'
