NASB — Ezekiel 9 — KJV

The Vision of Slaughter

1 Then He cried out in my hearing with a loud avoice saying, “Draw near, IO executioners of the city, each with his destroying weapon in his hand.” 2 Behold, six men came from the direction of the upper gate which faces north, each with his shattering weapon in his hand; and among them was aa certain man clothed in linen with a Iwriting case at his loins. And they went in and stood beside the bronze altar.

3 ¶ Then the aglory of the God of Israel went up from the cherub on which it had been, to the threshold of the Itemple. And He called to the man clothed in linen at whose loins was the writing case. 4 The LORD said to him, “Go through the midst of the city, [even] through the midst of Jerusalem, and put a amark on the foreheads of the men who bsigh and groan over all the abominations which are being committed in its midst.” 5 But to the others He said in my hearing, “Go through the city after him and strike; do not let your eye have pity and do not spare. 6 IUtterly aslay old men, young men, maidens, little children, and women, but do not btouch any man on whom is the mark; and you shall cstart from My sanctuary.” So they started with the IIelders who [were] before the IIItemple. 7 And He said to them, “aDefile the Itemple and fill the courts with the slain. Go out!” Thus they went out and struck down [the people] in the city. 8 As they were striking [the people] and I [alone] was left, I afell on my face and cried out Isaying, “bAlas, Lord IIGOD! Are You destroying the whole remnant of Israel IIIby pouring out Your wrath on Jerusalem?”

A vision, whereby is shewed the preservation of some,

1 ¶ He cried also in mine ears with a loud voice, saying, Cause them that have charge over the city to draw near, even every man [with] his destroying weapon in his hand. 2 And, behold, six men came from the way of the higher gate, which lieth toward the north, and every man a slaughter weapon in his hand; and one man among them [was] clothed with linen, with a writer's inkhorn by his side: and they went in, and stood beside the brasen altar. 3 And the glory of the God of Israel was gone up from the cherub, whereupon he was, to the threshold of the house. And he called to the man clothed with linen, which [had] the writer's inkhorn by his side; 4 And the LORD said unto him, Go through the midst of the city, through the midst of Jerusalem, and set a mark upon the foreheads of the men that sigh and that cry for all the abominations that be done in the midst thereof.

and the destruction of the rest.

5 ¶ And to the others he said in mine hearing, Go ye after him through the city, and smite: let not your eye spare, neither have ye pity: 6 Slay utterly old [and] young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom [is] the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which [were] before the house. 7 And he said unto them, Defile the house, and fill the courts with the slain: go ye forth. And they went forth, and slew in the city.

8 ¶ And it came to pass, while they were slaying them, and I was left, that I fell upon my face, and cried, and said, Ah Lord GOD! wilt thou destroy all the residue of Israel in thy pouring out of thy fury upon Jerusalem? 9 Then said he unto me, The iniquity of the house of Israel and Judah [is] exceeding great, and the land is full of blood, and the city full of perverseness: for they say, The LORD hath forsaken the earth, and the LORD seeth not. 10 And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, [but] I will recompense their way upon their head. 11 And, behold, the man clothed with linen, which [had] the inkhorn by his side, reported the matter, saying, I have done as thou hast commanded me.
