1 Then 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 aopened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll.
4 Then He said to me, “Son of man, 1go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them.
9 “Like 1emery harder than flint I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them, though they are a rebellious house.”
13 And I heard the sound of the wings of the living beings touching one another and the sound of the awheels beside them, even a great rumbling sound.
14 So the Spirit lifted me up and took me away; and I went embittered in the rage of my spirit, and athe hand of the Lord was strong on me.
15 Then I came to the exiles who lived beside the river Chebar at Tel-abib, and I sat there aseven days where they were living, causing consternation among them.
16 aAt the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying,
18 “When I say to the wicked, ‘You will surely die,’ and you do not warn him or speak out to warn the wicked from his wicked way that he may live, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his ablood I will require at your hand.
20 “Again, awhen a righteous man turns away from his righteousness and commits iniquity, and I place an bobstacle before him, he will die; since you have not warned him, he shall die in his sin, and his righteous deeds which he has done shall not be remembered; but his blood I will require at your hand.
22 The hand of the Lord was on me there, and He said to me, “Get up, go out to the plain, and there I will aspeak to you.”
24 The aSpirit then entered me and made me stand on my feet, and He spoke with me and said to me, “Go, shut yourself up in your house.
25 “As for you, son of man, they will aput ropes on you and bind you with them so that you cannot go out among them.
27 “But awhen I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord 1God.’ He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; bfor they are a rebellious house.
