So now this is what Yahweh the God of Armies, the God of Israel, says: Why do you commit this great evil against your own souls, to cut off from yourselves man and woman, infant and nursing child, out of the midst of Judah, and so leaving yourselves without a remnant? Bible see other translations

“your own souls.” Here equivalent to “yourselves” (see Appendix 7, “Usages of ‘Soul’”).
