the rod hath blossomed, pride hath budded.
EZE 7:11 Violence is risen up into a rod of wickedness: none of them
shall remain, nor of their multitude, nor of any of their's: neither
shall there be wailing for them.
EZE 7:12 The time is come, the day draweth near: let not the buyer
rejoice, nor the seller mourn: for wrath is upon all the multitude
EZE 7:13 For the seller shall not return to that which is sold,
although they were yet alive: for the vision is touching the whole
multitude thereof, which shall not return; neither shall any strengthen
himself in the iniquity of his life.
