the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
of man, set thy face toward the mountains of Israel, and prophesy against them,
3And say, Ye mountains of Israel, hear the word of the Lord GOD; Thus saith the Lord GOD to the mountains,
and to the hills, to the rivers, and to the valleys; Behold, I, even I, will bring a sword upon you, and I will destroy your

and your images shall be broken: and I will cast down your slain men before your idols.
5And I will lay the dead carcases of the children of Israel before their idols;
and I will scatter your bones round about your altars.
all your dwellingplaces the cities shall be laid waste, and the high places shall be desolate; that your altars may be laid

their habitations: and they shall know that I am the LORD.
