God's Message came to me: "Son of man, confront Sidon. Preach against it. Say, 'Message from God, the Master: "'Look! I'm against you, Sidon.
I intend to be known for who I truly am among you.'
They'll know that I am God
when I set things right
and reveal my holy presence.
I'll order an epidemic of disease there,
along with murder and mayhem in the streets.
People will drop dead right and left,
as war presses in from every side.
Then they'll realize that I mean business,
that I am God.
"No longer will Israel have to put up with
their thistle-and-thorn neighbors
Who have treated them so contemptuously.
And they also will realize that I am God."
