3 Moreover He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find; aeat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.” 2 So I opened my mouth, and He caused me to eat that scroll.
4 Then He said to me: “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them. 5 For you are not sent to a people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, but to the house of Israel, 6 not to many people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, dhad I sent you to them, they would have listened to you. 7 But the house of Israel will not listen to you, ebecause they will not listen to Me; ffor all the house of Israel are 1impudent and hard-hearted. 8 Behold, I have made your face strong against their faces, and your forehead strong against their foreheads. 9 gLike adamant stone, harder than flint, I have made your forehead; hdo not be afraid of them, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they are a rebellious house.”
