Bible: Eze 8:7-13

8:7 He brought me to the entrance of the court, and as I watched, I noticed a hole in the wall. 8:8 He said to me, “Son of man, dig into the wall.” So I dug into the wall and discovered a doorway.

8:9 He said to me, “Go in and see the evil abominations they are practicing here.” 8:10 So I went in and looked. I noticed every figure 1  of creeping thing and beast – detestable images 2  – and every idol of the house of Israel, engraved on the wall all around. 3  8:11 Seventy men from the elders of the house of Israel 4  (with Jaazaniah son of Shaphan standing among them) were standing in front of them, each with a censer in his hand, and fragrant 5  vapors from a cloud of incense were swirling upward.

8:12 He said to me, “Do you see, son of man, what the elders of the house of Israel are doing in the dark, each in the chamber of his idolatrous images? 6  For they think, ‘The Lord does not see us! The Lord has abandoned the land!’ 8:13 He said to me, “You will see them practicing even greater abominations!
