11 Moreover athe spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto bthe east gate of the Lord’s house, which looketh eastward: and behold at the door of the gate cfive and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of dAzur, and ePelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people. 2 Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city: 3 fWhich say, ||gIt is not near; hlet us build houses: ithis city is the caldron, and we be the flesh. 4 Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man. 5 kAnd the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak; Thus saith the Lord; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: for I know lthe things that come into your mind, every one of them. 6 mYe have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the streets thereof with the slain. 7 Therefore thus saith the Lord God; nYour slain whom ye have laid in the midst of it, othey are the flesh, and this city is ithe caldron: but pI will bring you forth out of the midst of it. 8 qYe have feared the sword; and I will bring a sword upon you, saith the Lord God. 9 And pI will bring you out of the midst thereof, and rdeliver you into the hands of strangers, and swill execute judgments among you. 10 tYe shall fall by the sword; I will judge you uin the border of Israel; vand ye shall know that I am the Lord. 11 oThis city shall not be your icaldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof; but sI will judge you uin the border of Israel: 12 vAnd ye shall know that I am the Lord: ||for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but whave done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.
13 And it came to pass, when I prophesied, xthat ePelatiah the son of Benaiah died. Then yfell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, zAh Lord God! ywilt thou amake a full end of the remnant of Israel? 14 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, 15 Son of man, thy brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel wholly, are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Get you far from the Lord: unto us is this land given in possession. 16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet bwill I be to them as ca little sanctuary in the countries where they shall come. 17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God; dI will even gather you from the people, dand assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, dand I will give you the land of Israel. 18 And they shall come thither, and ethey shall take away all fthe detestable things thereof and all fthe abominations thereof from thence. 19 And gI will give them one heart, and I will put ha new spirit within you; and I iwill take the stony heart out of their flesh, and iwill give them an heart of flesh: 20 kThat they may walk in my statutes, and keep mine ordinances, and do them: and lthey shall be my people, land I will be their God. 21 But as for them whose heart walketh after the heart of ftheir detestable things and ftheir abominations, mI will recompense their way upon their own heads, saith the Lord God.
22 Then ndid the cherubims lift up their wings, and nthe wheels beside them; and nothe glory of the God of Israel was over them above. 23 And othe glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon pthe mountain which is on the east side of the city. 24 Afterwards qthe spirit took me up, and brought me rin a vision by the Spirit of God sinto Chaldea, to them of the captivity. So the vision that I had seen went up from me. 25 Then I spake unto them of the captivity all the things that the Lord had shewed me.
