Ezekiel 1:26–2:7

26 And above pthe firmament that was over their heads was zthe likeness of a throne, zas the appearance of aa sapphire stone: and bupon the likeness of the throne was the likeness bas the appearance of a man above upon it. 27 And I saw cas the colour of amber, as the appearance of fire round about within it, ccfrom the appearance of his loins even upward, and from the appearance of his loins even downward, I saw as it were the appearance of fire, and dit had brightness round about. 28 eAs the appearance of the bow fthat is in the cloud in the day of rain, dso was the appearance of the brightness round about. This was the appearance of the likeness of gthe glory of the Lord. hAnd when I saw it, hI fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake.

2 And he said unto me, aSon of man, bstand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. cAnd the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and bcset me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: dthey and their fathers have transgressed against me, even unto this very day. For ethey are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God. And they, fwhether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for fgthey are a rebellious house,) yet hshall know that there hath been a prophet among them. And thou, ason of man, ibe not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though ||kbriers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost dwell among lscorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor ibe dismayed at their looks, though gthey be a rebellious house. mAnd thou shalt speak my words unto them, fwhether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
