|<< Ezekiel 2 >>|
American King James Version
1And he said to me, Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak to you.
2And the spirit entered into me when he spoke to me, and set me on my feet, that I heard him that spoke to me.
3And he said to me, Son of man, I send you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, even to this very day.
4For they are impudent children and stiff hearted. I do send you to them; and you shall say to them, Thus said the Lord GOD.
5And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there has been a prophet among them.
6And you, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with you, and you do dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7And you shall speak my words to them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8But you, son of man, hear what I say to you; Be not you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that I give you.
9And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent to me; and, see, a roll of a book was therein;
10And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
