Advent 2023 Day 9

The word of the Lord came to me: 2 “Son of man, this is what the Sovereign Lord says to the land of Israel:
“‘The end! The end has come

    upon the four corners of the land!
3 The end is now upon you,

    and I will unleash my anger against you.
I will judge you according to your conduct

    and repay you for all your detestable practices.
4 I will not look on you with pity;

    I will not spare you.
I will surely repay you for your conduct

    and for the detestable practices among you.
“‘Then you will know that I am the Lord.’
5 “This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“‘Disaster! Unheard-of[a] disaster!

    See, it comes!
6 The end has come!

    The end has come!
It has roused itself against you.

    See, it comes!
7 Doom has come upon you,

    upon you who dwell in the land.
The time has come! The day is near!

    There is panic, not joy, on the mountains.
8 I am about to pour out my wrath on you

    and spend my anger against you.
I will judge you according to your conduct

    and repay you for all your detestable practices.
9 I will not look on you with pity;

    I will not spare you.
I will repay you for your conduct

    and for the detestable practices among you.
“‘Then you will know that it is I the Lord who strikes you.

(Ezekiel 7:1-9, NIV)
