11. Wherefore, as I live, saith the Lord GOD; Surely, because thou hast defiled my sanctuary with all thy detestable things, and with all thine abominations, therefore will I also diminish thee; neither shall mine eye spare, neither will I have any pity
11. Propterea vivo ego, dicit Dominator Iehovah, si non propterea quod sanctuarium meum polluisti in omnibus detestationibus tuis, et omnibus abominationibus tuis: Etiam ego diminuam; et non parcet oculus meus, et etiam ego non miserebor.
Here God again expresses more clearly why he was so eager to take vengeance namely, because the religion of the Jews was corrupt, and the Temple had been violated, as we shall see to-morrow.
