Ezekiel 14 (WEBP)

[1] Then some of the elders of Israel came to me and sat before me.
[2] Yahweh’s word came to me, saying,
[3] “Son of man, these men have taken their idols into their heart, and put the stumbling block of their iniquity before their face. Should I be inquired of at all by them?
[4] Therefore speak to them and tell them, ‘The Lord Yahweh says: “Every man of the house of Israel who takes his idols into his heart and puts the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face then comes to the prophet, I Yahweh will answer him there according to the multitude of his idols,
[5] that I may take the house of Israel in their own heart, because they are all estranged from me through their idols.” ’
[6] “Therefore tell the house of Israel, ‘The Lord Yahweh says: “Return, and turn yourselves from your idols! Turn away your faces from all your abominations.
[7] “ ‘ “For everyone of the house of Israel, or of the strangers who live in Israel, who separates himself from me and takes his idols into his heart, and puts the stumbling block of his iniquity before his face, and comes to the prophet to inquire for himself of me, I Yahweh will answer him by myself.
[8] I will set my face against that man and will make him an astonishment, for a sign and a proverb, and I will cut him off from among my people. Then you will know that I am Yahweh.
[9] “ ‘ “If the prophet is deceived and speaks a word, I, Yahweh, have deceived that prophet, and I will stretch out my hand on him, and will destroy him from among my people Israel.
[10] They will bear their iniquity. The iniquity of the prophet will be even as the iniquity of him who seeks him,
[11] that the house of Israel may no more go astray from me, neither defile themselves any more with all their transgressions; but that they may be my people, and I may be their God,” says the Lord Yahweh.’ ”
[12] Yahweh’s word came to me, saying,
[13] “Son of man, when a land sins against me by committing a trespass, and I stretch out my hand on it, and break the staff of its bread and send famine on it, and cut off from it man and animal—
[14] though these three men, Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver only their own souls by their righteousness,” says the Lord Yahweh.
[15] “If I cause evil animals to pass through the land, and they ravage it and it is made desolate, so that no man may pass through because of the animals—
[16] though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters. They only would be delivered, but the land would be desolate.
[17] “Or if I bring a sword on that land, and say, ‘Sword, go through the land, so that I cut off from it man and animal’—
[18] though these three men were in it, as I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “they would deliver neither sons nor daughters, but they only would be delivered themselves.
[19] “Or if I send a pestilence into that land, and pour out my wrath on it in blood, to cut off from it man and animal—
[20] though Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, as I live,” says the Lord Yahweh, “they would deliver neither son nor daughter; they would deliver only their own souls by their righteousness.”
[21] For the Lord Yahweh says: “How much more when I send my four severe judgments on Jerusalem—the sword, the famine, the evil animals, and the pestilence—to cut off from it man and animal!
[22] Yet, behold, there will be left a remnant in it that will be carried out, both sons and daughters. Behold, they will come out to you, and you will see their way and their doings. Then you will be comforted concerning the evil that I have brought on Jerusalem, even concerning all that I have brought on it.
[23] They will comfort you, when you see their way and their doings; then you will know that I have not done all that I have done in it without cause,” says the Lord Yahweh.

Ezekiel 14 (KJVS)

[1] Then came H935 (8799) certain H582 of the elders H2205 of Israel H3478 unto me, and sat H3427 (8799) before H6440 me.
[2] And the word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came unto me, saying H559 (8800),
[3] Son H1121 of man H120, these men H582 have set up H5927 (8689) their idols H1544 in their heart H3820, and put H5414 (8804) the stumblingblock H4383 of their iniquity H5771 before H5227 their face H6440: should I be enquired H1875 (8735) of at all H1875 (8736) by them?
[4] Therefore speak H1696 (8761) unto them, and say H559 (8804) unto them, Thus saith H559 (8804) the Lord H136 GOD H3069; Every man H376 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478 that setteth up H5927 (8686) his idols H1544 in his heart H3820, and putteth H7760 (8799) the stumblingblock H4383 of his iniquity H5771 before H5227 his face H6440, and cometh H935 (8804) to the prophet H5030; I the LORD H3068 will answer H6030 (8738) him that cometh H935 (8804) according to the multitude H7230 of his idols H1544;
[5] That I may take H8610 (8800) the house H1004 of Israel H3478 in their own heart H3820, because they are all estranged H2114 (8738) from me through their idols H1544.
[6] Therefore say H559 (8798) unto the house H1004 of Israel H3478, Thus saith H559 (8804) the Lord H136 GOD H3069; Repent H7725 (8798), and turn H7725 (8685) [yourselves] from your idols H1544; and turn away H7725 (8685) your faces H6440 from all your abominations H8441.
[7] For every one H376 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478, or of the stranger H1616 that sojourneth H1481 (8799) in Israel H3478, which separateth H5144 (8735) himself from me H310, and setteth up H5927 (8799) his idols H1544 in his heart H3820, and putteth H7760 (8799) the stumblingblock H4383 of his iniquity H5771 before H5227 his face H6440, and cometh H935 (8804) to a prophet H5030 to enquire H1875 (8800) of him concerning me; I the LORD H3068 will answer H6030 (8737) him by myself:
[8] And I will set H5414 (8804) my face H6440 against that man H376, and will make H8074 (8689) him a sign H226 and a proverb H4912, and I will cut him off H3772 (8689) from the midst H8432 of my people H5971; and ye shall know H3045 (8804) that I [am] the LORD H3068.
[9] And if the prophet H5030 be deceived H6601 (8792) when he hath spoken H1696 (8765) a thing H1697, I the LORD H3068 have deceived H6601 (8765) that prophet H5030, and I will stretch out H5186 (8804) my hand H3027 upon him, and will destroy H8045 (8689) him from the midst H8432 of my people H5971 Israel H3478.
[10] And they shall bear H5375 (8804) the punishment of their iniquity H5771: the punishment H5771 of the prophet H5030 shall be even as the punishment H5771 of him that seeketh H1875 (8802) [unto him];
[11] That the house H1004 of Israel H3478 may go no more astray H8582 (8799) from me H310, neither be polluted H2930 (8691) any more with all their transgressions H6588; but that they may be my people H5971, and I may be their God H430, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069.
[12] The word H1697 of the LORD H3068 came again to me, saying H559 (8800),
[13] Son H1121 of man H120, when the land H776 sinneth H2398 (8799) against me by trespassing H4603 (8800) grievously H4604, then will I stretch out H5186 (8804) mine hand H3027 upon it, and will break H7665 (8804) the staff H4294 of the bread H3899 thereof, and will send H7971 (8689) famine H7458 upon it, and will cut off H3772 (8689) man H120 and beast H929 from it:
[14] Though these three H7969 men H582, Noah H5146, Daniel H1840, and Job H347, were in it H8432, they should deliver H5337 (8762) [but] their own souls H5315 by their righteousness H6666, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069.
[15] If H3863 I cause noisome H7451 beasts H2416 to pass through H5674 (8686) the land H776, and they spoil H7921 (8765) it, so that it be desolate H8077, that no man may pass through H5674 (8802) because H6440 of the beasts H2416:
[16] [Though] these three H7969 men H582 [were] in it H8432, [as] I live H2416, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069, they shall deliver H5337 (8686) neither sons H1121 nor daughters H1323; they only shall be delivered H5337 (8735), but the land H776 shall be desolate H8077.
[17] Or [if] I bring H935 (8686) a sword H2719 upon that land H776, and say H559 (8804), Sword H2719, go through H5674 (8799) the land H776; so that I cut off H3772 (8689) man H120 and beast H929 from it:
[18] Though these three H7969 men H582 [were] in it H8432, [as] I live H2416, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069, they shall deliver H5337 (8686) neither sons H1121 nor daughters H1323, but they only shall be delivered H5337 (8735) themselves.
[19] Or [if] I send H7971 (8762) a pestilence H1698 into that land H776, and pour out H8210 (8804) my fury H2534 upon it in blood H1818, to cut off H3772 (8687) from it man H120 and beast H929:
[20] Though Noah H5146, Daniel H1840, and Job H347, [were] in it H8432, [as] I live H2416, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069, they shall deliver H5337 (8686) neither son H1121 nor H518 daughter H1323; they shall [but] deliver H5337 (8686) their own souls H5315 by their righteousness H6666.
[21] For thus saith H559 (8804) the Lord H136 GOD H3069; How much more when I send H7971 (8765) my four H702 sore H7451 judgments H8201 upon Jerusalem H3389, the sword H2719, and the famine H7458, and the noisome H7451 beast H2416, and the pestilence H1698, to cut off H3772 (8687) from it man H120 and beast H929?
[22] Yet, behold, therein shall be left H3498 (8738) a remnant H6413 that shall be brought forth H3318 (8716), [both] sons H1121 and daughters H1323: behold, they shall come forth H3318 (8802) unto you, and ye shall see H7200 (8804) their way H1870 and their doings H5949: and ye shall be comforted H5162 (8738) concerning the evil H7451 that I have brought H935 (8689) upon Jerusalem H3389, [even] concerning all that I have brought H935 (8689) upon it.
[23] And they shall comfort H5162 (8765) you, when ye see H7200 (8799) their ways H1870 and their doings H5949: and ye shall know H3045 (8804) that I have not done H6213 (8804) without cause H2600 all that I have done H6213 (8804) in it, saith H5002 (8803) the Lord H136 GOD H3069.

Young’s Literal Translation

Ezekiel 14 (YLT)

[1] And come in unto me do certain of the elders of Israel, and sit before me.
[2] And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
[3] ‘Son of man, these men have caused their idols to go up on their heart, and the stumbling-block of their iniquity they have put over-against their faces; am I inquired of at all by them?
[4] ‘Therefore, speak with them, and thou hast said unto them: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Every one of the house of Israel who causeth his idols to go up unto his heart, and the stumbling-block of his iniquity setteth over-against his face, and hath gone in unto the prophet-I Jehovah have given an answer to him for this, for the abundance of his idols,
[5] in order to catch the house of Israel by their heart, in that they have become estranged from off me by their idols-all of them.
[6] ‘Therefore say unto the house of Israel: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Turn ye back, yea, turn ye back from your idols, and from all your abominations turn back your faces,
[7] for every one of the house of Israel, and of the sojourners who doth sojourn in Israel, who is separated from after Me, and doth cause his idols to go up unto his heart, and the stumbling-block of his iniquity setteth over-against his face, and hath come in unto the prophet to inquire of him concerning Me, I, Jehovah, have answered him for Myself;
[8] and I have set My face against that man, and made him for a sign, and for similes, and I have cut him off from the midst of My people, and ye have known that I am Jehovah.
[9] ‘And the prophet, when he is enticed, and hath spoken a word-I, Jehovah, I have enticed that prophet, and have stretched out My hand against him, and have destroyed him from the midst of My people Israel.
[10] And they have borne their iniquity: as the iniquity of the inquirer, so is the iniquity of the prophet;
[11] so that the house of Israel do not wander any more from after Me, nor are defiled any more with all their transgressions, and they have been to Me for a people, and I am to them for God-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.’
[12] And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying,
[13] ‘Son of man, the land-when it sinneth against Me to commit a trespass, and I have stretched out My hand against it, and broken for it the staff of bread, and sent into it famine, and cut off from it man and beast-
[14] and these three men have been in its midst, Noah, Daniel, and Job-they by their righteousness deliver their own soul-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.
[15] ‘If an evil beast I cause to pass through the land, and it hath bereaved, and it hath been a desolation, without any passing through because of the beast-
[16] these three men in its midst: I live-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah-neither sons nor daughters do they deliver; they alone are delivered, and the land is a desolation.
[17] ‘Or-a sword I bring in against that land, and I have said: Sword, thou dost pass over through the land, and I have cut off from it man and beast-
[18] and these three men in its midst: I live-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah-they deliver not sons and daughters, for they alone are delivered.
[19] ‘Or-pestilence I send unto that land, and I have poured out My fury against it in blood, to cut off from it man and beast-
[20] and Noah, Daniel, and Job, in its midst: I live-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah-neither son nor daughter do they deliver; they, by their righteousness, deliver their own soul.
[21] ‘For thus said the Lord Jehovah: Although My four sore judgments-sword, and famine, and wild beast, and pestilence-I have sent unto Jerusalem, to cut off from it man and beast,
[22] yet, lo, there hath been left in it an escape, who are brought forth, sons and daughters, lo, they are coming forth unto you, and ye have seen their way, and their doings, and have been comforted concerning the evil that I have brought in against Jerusalem, all that which I have brought in against it.
[23] And they have comforted you, for ye see their way and their doings, and ye have known that not for nought have I done all that which I have done in her-an affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.’
