Ezekiel 6:7-9 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

The slain shall fall in your midst, and you shall know that I am the Lord.[a] But I will spare some of you from the sword to live as refugees among the nations when you are scattered to foreign lands. Then your refugees will remember me among the nations to which they have been exiled, after I have broken their lusting hearts that turned away from me and their eyes that lusted after idols. They will loathe themselves for all the evil they have done, for all their abominations.

Footnotes:

  1. 6:7 You shall know that I am the Lord: this formula is repeated after most of Ezekiel’s oracles from this point on. Whatever happens to Israel happens at the Lord’s command; because the Lord uses the nations to punish or reward Israel for its behavior, Israel will learn that its God has sole rule over the nations and the universe, and will acknowledge that rule in obedience.
