Shall I cause it to return
Since I will cut off [both] the righteous and the wicked, My sword will therefore come out of its sheath against everyone from the south to the north.
So all the people will know that I, the LORD, have taken My sword from its sheath-- it will not be sheathed again.
Ah, sword of the LORD! How long will you be restless? Go back to your scabbard; be still; be silent!
How can it rest when the LORD has given it a command? He has assigned it against Ashkelon and the shore of the sea.
I will judge you the way adulteresses and those who shed blood are judged. Then I will bring about your bloodshed in wrath and jealousy.
You were in Eden, the garden of God. Every kind of precious stone covered you: carnelian, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and emerald. Your mountings and settings were crafted in gold; they were prepared on the day you were created.
From the day you were created you were blameless in your ways until wickedness was found in you.
However, I will judge the nation they serve, and afterwards they will go out with many possessions.
You are to say: This is what the Lord God says to Jerusalem: Your origin and your birth were in the land of the Canaanites. Your father was an Amorite and your mother a Hittite.
As for your birth, your umbilical cord wasn't cut on the day you were born, and you weren't washed clean with water. You were not rubbed with salt or wrapped in cloths.
