NASB — Ezekiel 8 — KJV

Vision of Abominations in Jerusalem

1 It came about in the sixth year, on the fifth [day] of the sixth month, as I was sitting in my house with the elders of Judah sitting before me, that the hand of the Lord IGOD fell on me there. 2 Then I looked, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of Ia man; from His loins and downward [there was] the aappearance of fire, and from His loins and upward the appearance of brightness, like the appearance bof IIglowing metal. 3 He stretched out the form of a hand and caught me by a lock of my head; and the aSpirit lifted me up between earth and heaven and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the entrance of the Inorth gate of the inner [court], where the seat of the idol of jealousy, which bprovokes to jealousy, was [located]. 4 And behold, the aglory of the God of Israel [was] there, like the appearance which I saw in the plain.

For they say, ‘aThe LORD does not see us; the LORD has bforsaken the land.’” 13 And He said to me, “Yet you will see still greater abominations which they are committing.”

16 ¶ Then He brought me into the inner court of the LORDS house.

Ezekiel, in a vision of God at Jerusalem,

1 ¶ And it came to pass in the sixth year, in the sixth [month], in the fifth [day] of the month, [as] I sat¬ in mine house, and the elders of Judah sat¬ before me, that the hand of the Lord GOD fell¬ there upon me. 2 Then I beheld,¬ and lo a likeness as the appearance of fire: from the appearance of his loins even downward, fire; and from his loins even upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of amber. 3 And he put forth¬ the form of an hand, and took¬ me by a lock of mine head; and the spirit lifted me up¬ between the earth and the heaven, and brought¬ me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the inner gate that looketh¬ toward the north; where [was] the seat of the image of jealousy, which provoketh to jealousy.¬ 4 And, behold, the glory of the God of Israel [was] there, according to the vision that I saw¬ in the plain.

5 ¶ Then said¬ he unto me, Son of man, lift up¬ thine eyes now the way toward the north. So I lifted up¬ mine eyes the way toward the north, and behold northward at the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry. 6 He said¬ furthermore unto me, Son of man, seest¬ thou what they do?¬ [even] the great abominations that the house of Israel committeth¬ here, that I should go far off¬ from my sanctuary? but turn¬ thee yet again, [and] thou shalt see¬ greater abominations.

7 ¶ And he brought¬ me to the door of the court; and when I looked,¬ behold a hole in the wall. 8 Then said¬ he unto me, Son of man, dig¬ now in the wall: and when I had digged¬ in the wall, behold a door. 9 And he said¬ unto me, Go in,¬ and behold¬ the wicked abominations that they do¬ here. 10 So I went in¬ and saw;¬ and behold every form of creeping things, and abominable beasts, and all the idols of the house of Israel, pourtrayed¬ upon the wall round about. 11 And there stood¬ before them seventy men of the ancients of the house of Israel, and in the midst of them stood¬ Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan, with every man his censer in his hand; and a thick cloud of incense went up.¬ 12 Then said¬ he unto me, Son of man, hast thou seen¬ what the ancients of the house of Israel do¬ in the dark, every man in the chambers of his imagery? for they say,¬ The LORD seeth¬ us not; the LORD hath forsaken¬ the earth.
