Judgment For The Profanation Of The Temple And Sanctuary

19 Their silver into the streets, shall they cast and Their gold for throwing away, shall serve, Their silver and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of Yahweh, Their craving, shall they not satisfy, and Their belly, shall they not fill, For a stumbling-block, hath their iniquity become. 20 While the beauty of his own ornament he had in majesty placed, Then the images, of their abominations. Their detestable things, Made they therein, - For this cause have I delivered it up to them for removal; 21 Yea I will deliver it Into the hand of foreigners for a prey, And to the lawless ones of the earth for a spoil, And they will profane it;
