“And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countreys: according to their way and according to their doings I iudged them.”
King James Version (KJV)
16. ¶ Moreouer the worde of the Lord came vnto me, saying, 17. Sonne of man, when the house of Israel dwelt in their own land, they defiled it by their owne way, and by their doings: their way was before me as the vncleannesse of a remooued woman. 18. Wherefore I powred my furie vpon them for the blood that they had shed vpon the land, and for their idoles wherewith they had polluted it. 19. And I scattered them among the heathen, and they were dispersed through the countreys: according to their way and according to their doings I iudged them. 20. And when they entred vnto the heathen whither they went, they prophaned my holy Name, when they said to them, These are the people of the Lord, and are gone forth out of his land. 21. ¶ But I had pitie for mine holy Name, which the house of Israel had prophaned among the heathen, whither they went. 22. Therefore say vnto the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord God, I doe not this for your sakes, O house of Israel, but for mine holy Names sake, which ye haue prophaned among the heathen, whither ye went.
