Ezekiel 8 (WEBP)

[1] In the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I sat in my house, and the elders of Judah sat before me, the Lord Yahweh’s hand fell on me there.
[2] Then I saw, and behold, a likeness as the appearance of fire—from the appearance of his waist and downward, fire, and from his waist and upward, as the appearance of brightness, as it were glowing metal.
[3] He stretched out the form of a hand, and took me by a lock of my head; and the Spirit lifted me up between earth and the sky, and brought me in the visions of God to Jerusalem, to the door of the gate of the inner court that looks toward the north, where there was the seat of the image of jealousy, which provokes to jealousy.
[4] Behold, the glory of the God of Israel was there, according to the appearance that I saw in the plain.
[5] Then he said to me, “Son of man, lift up your eyes now the way toward the north.” So I lifted up my eyes the way toward the north, and saw, northward of the gate of the altar this image of jealousy in the entry.
[6] He said to me, “Son of man, do you see what they do? Even the great abominations that the house of Israel commit here, that I should go far off from my sanctuary? But you will again see yet other great abominations.”
[7] He brought me to the door of the court; and when I looked, behold, a hole in the wall.
[8] Then he said to me, “Son of man, dig now in the wall.” When I had dug in the wall, I saw a door.
[9] He said to me, “Go in, and see the wicked abominations that they do here.”
[10] So I went in and looked, and saw every form of creeping things, abominable animals, and all the idols of the house of Israel, portrayed around on the wall.
[11] Seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel stood before them. In the middle of them Jaazaniah the son of Shaphan stood, every man with his censer in his hand; and the smell of the cloud of incense went up.
[12] Then he said to me, “Son of man, have you seen what the elders of the house of Israel do in the dark, every man in his rooms of imagery? For they say, ‘Yahweh doesn’t see us. Yahweh has forsaken the land.’ ”
[13] He said also to me, “You will again see more of the great abominations which they do.”
[14] Then he brought me to the door of the gate of Yahweh’s house which was toward the north; and I saw the women sit there weeping for Tammuz.
[15] Then he said to me, “Have you seen this, son of man? You will again see yet greater abominations than these.”
[16] He brought me into the inner court of Yahweh’s house; and I saw at the door of Yahweh’s temple, between the porch and the altar, there were about twenty-five men with their backs toward Yahweh’s temple and their faces toward the east. They were worshiping the sun toward the east.
[17] Then he said to me, “Have you seen this, son of man? Is it a light thing to the house of Judah that they commit the abominations which they commit here? For they have filled the land with violence, and have turned again to provoke me to anger. Behold, they put the branch to their nose.
[18] Therefore I will also deal in wrath. My eye won’t spare, neither will I have pity. Though they cry in my ears with a loud voice, yet I will not hear them.”

Ezekiel 8 (KJVS)

[1] And it came to pass in the sixth H8345 year H8141, in the sixth H8345 [month], in the fifth H2568 [day] of the month H2320, [as] I sat H3427 (8802) in mine house H1004, and the elders H2205 of Judah H3063 sat H3427 (8802) before H6440 me, that the hand H3027 of the Lord H136 GOD H3069 fell H5307 (8799) there upon me.
[2] Then I beheld H7200 (8799), and lo a likeness H1823 as the appearance H4758 of fire H784: from the appearance H4758 of his loins H4975 even downward H4295, fire H784; and from his loins H4975 even upward H4605, as the appearance H4758 of brightness H2096, as the colour H5869 of amber H2830.
[3] And he put forth H7971 (8799) the form H8403 of an hand H3027, and took H3947 (8799) me by a lock H6734 of mine head H7218; and the spirit H7307 lifted me up H5375 (8799) between the earth H776 and the heaven H8064, and brought H935 (8686) me in the visions H4759 of God H430 to Jerusalem H3389, to the door H6607 of the inner H6442 gate H8179 that looketh H6437 (8802) toward the north H6828; where [was] the seat H4186 of the image H5566 of jealousy H7068, which provoketh to jealousy H7069 (8688).
[4] And, behold, the glory H3519 of the God H430 of Israel H3478 [was] there, according to the vision H4758 that I saw H7200 (8804) in the plain H1237.
[5] Then said H559 (8799) he unto me, Son H1121 of man H120, lift up H5375 (8798) thine eyes H5869 now the way H1870 toward the north H6828. So I lifted up H5375 (8799) mine eyes H5869 the way H1870 toward the north H6828, and behold northward H6828 at the gate H8179 of the altar H4196 this image H5566 of jealousy H7068 in the entry H872.
[6] He said H559 (8799) furthermore unto me, Son H1121 of man H120, seest H7200 (8802) thou what they do H6213 (8802)? [even] the great H1419 abominations H8441 that the house H1004 of Israel H3478 committeth H6213 (8802) here, that I should go far off H7368 (8800) from my sanctuary H4720? but turn H7725 (8799) thee yet again, [and] thou shalt see H7200 (8799) greater H1419 abominations H8441.
[7] And he brought H935 (8686) me to the door H6607 of the court H2691; and when I looked H7200 (8799), behold a H259 hole H2356 in the wall H7023.
[8] Then said H559 (8799) he unto me, Son H1121 of man H120, dig H2864 (8798) now in the wall H7023: and when I had digged H2864 (8799) in the wall H7023, behold a H259 door H6607.
[9] And he said H559 (8799) unto me, Go in H935 (8798), and behold H7200 (8798) the wicked H7451 abominations H8441 that they do H6213 (8802) here.
[10] So I went in H935 (8799) and saw H7200 (8799); and behold every form H8403 of creeping things H7431, and abominable H8263 beasts H929, and all the idols H1544 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478, pourtrayed H2707 (8794) upon the wall H7023 round about H5439.
[11] And there stood H5975 (8802) before H6440 them seventy H7657 men H376 of the ancients H2205 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478, and in the midst H8432 of them stood H5975 (8802) Jaazaniah H2970 the son H1121 of Shaphan H8227, with every man H376 his censer H4730 in his hand H3027; and a thick H6282 cloud H6051 of incense H7004 went up H5927 (8802).
[12] Then said H559 (8799) he unto me, Son H1121 of man H120, hast thou seen H7200 (8804) what the ancients H2205 of the house H1004 of Israel H3478 do H6213 (8802) in the dark H2822, every man H376 in the chambers H2315 of his imagery H4906? for they say H559 (8802), The LORD H3068 seeth H7200 (8802) us not; the LORD H3068 hath forsaken H5800 (8804) the earth H776.
[13] He said H559 (8799) also unto me, Turn H7725 (8799) thee yet again, [and] thou shalt see H7200 (8799) greater H1419 abominations H8441 that they do H6213 (8802).
[14] Then he brought H935 (8686) me to the door H6607 of the gate H8179 of the LORD’S H3068 house H1004 which [was] toward the north H6828; and, behold, there sat H3427 (8802) women H802 weeping H1058 (8764) for Tammuz H8542.
[15] Then said H559 (8799) he unto me, Hast thou seen H7200 (8804) [this], O son H1121 of man H120? turn H7725 (8799) thee yet again, [and] thou shalt see H7200 (8799) greater H1419 abominations H8441 than these.
[16] And he brought H935 (8686) me into the inner H6442 court H2691 of the LORD’S H3068 house H1004, and, behold, at the door H6607 of the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068, between the porch H197 and the altar H4196, [were] about five H2568 and twenty H6242 men H376, with their backs H268 toward the temple H1964 of the LORD H3068, and their faces H6440 toward the east H6924; and they worshipped H7812 (8693) the sun H8121 toward the east H6924.
[17] Then he said H559 (8799) unto me, Hast thou seen H7200 (8804) [this], O son H1121 of man H120? Is it a light thing H7043 (8738) to the house H1004 of Judah H3063 that they commit H6213 (8800) the abominations H8441 which they commit H6213 (8804) here? for they have filled H4390 (8804) the land H776 with violence H2555, and have returned H7725 (8799) to provoke me to anger H3707 (8687): and, lo, they put H7971 (8802) the branch H2156 to their nose H639.
[18] Therefore will I also deal H6213 (8799) in fury H2534: mine eye H5869 shall not spare H2347 (8799), neither will I have pity H2550 (8799): and though they cry H7121 (8804) in mine ears H241 with a loud H1419 voice H6963, [yet] will I not hear H8085 (8799) them.

Young’s Literal Translation

Ezekiel 8 (YLT)

[1] And it cometh to pass, in the sixth year, in the sixth month, in the fifth of the month, I am sitting in my house, and elders of Judah are sitting before me, and fall on me there doth a hand of the Lord Jehovah,
[2] and I look, and lo, a likeness as the appearance of fire, from the appearance of His loins and downward-fire, and from His loins and upward, as the appearance of brightness, as the colour of copper.
[3] And He putteth forth a form of a hand, and taketh me by a lock of my head, and lift me up doth a spirit between the earth and the heavens, and it bringeth me in to Jerusalem in visions of God, unto the opening of the inner gate that is facing the north, where is the seat of the figure of jealousy that is making jealous,
[4] and lo, there the honour of the God of Israel, as the appearance that I saw in the valley.
[5] And He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, lift up, I pray thee, thine eyes the way of the north.’ And I lift up mine eyes the way of the north, and lo, on the north of the gate of the altar this figure of jealousy, at the entrance.
[6] And He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, art thou seeing what they are doing? the great abominations that the house of Israel are doing here, to keep far off from My sanctuary; and again thou dost turn, thou dost see great abominations.’
[7] And He bringeth me in unto an opening of the court, and I look, and lo, a hole in the wall;
[8] and He saith unto me, ‘Son of man, dig, I pray thee, through the wall;’ and I dig through the wall, and lo, an opening.
[9] And He saith to me, ‘Go in, and see the evil abominations that they are doing here.’
[10] And I go in, and look, and lo, every form of creeping thing, and detestable beast-and all the Idols of the house of Israel-graved on the wall, all round about,
[11] and seventy men of the elders of the house of Israel-and Jaazaniah son of Shaphan standing in their midst-are standing before them, and each his censer in his hand, and the abundance of the cloud of perfume is going up.
[12] And He saith unto me, ‘Hast thou seen, son of man, that which elders of the house of Israel are doing in darkness, each in the inner chambers of his imagery, for they are saying, Jehovah is not seeing us, Jehovah hath forsaken the land?’
[13] And He saith unto me, ‘Again thou dost turn, thou dost see great abominations that they are doing.’
[14] And He bringeth me in unto the opening of the gate of the house of Jehovah that is at the north, and lo, there the women are sitting weeping for Tammuz.
[15] And He saith unto me, ‘Hast thou seen, son of man? again thou dost turn, thou dost see greater abominations than these.’
[16] And He bringeth me in unto the inner court of the house of Jehovah, and lo, at the opening of the temple of Jehovah, between the porch and the altar, about twenty-five men, their backs toward the temple of Jehovah, and their faces eastward, and they are bowing themselves eastward to the sun.
[17] And He saith unto me, ‘Hast thou seen, son of man? hath it been a light thing to the house of Judah to do the abomination that they have done here, that they have filled the land with violence, and turn back to provoke Me to anger? and lo, they are putting forth the branch unto their nose!
[18] And I also deal in fury, Mine eye doth not pity, nor do I spare, and they have cried in Mine ears-a loud voice-and I do not hear them.’
