“I will sweep away (A)man and beast;
    I will sweep away the birds of the heavens
    and (B)the fish of the sea,
and (C)the rubble[a] with the wicked.
    I will (D)cut off mankind
    from the face of the earth,” declares the Lord.
“I will stretch out my hand against Judah
    and against all the inhabitants of Jerusalem;
(E)and I will cut off from this place the remnant of Baal
    and the name of the idolatrous priests along with the priests,
(F)those who bow down on the roofs
    to the host of the heavens,
(G)those who bow down and swear to the Lord
    and yet swear by (H)Milcom,[b]
