Ezekiel 2

Ezekiel’s Call

1And he said to me, a  Son of man,
Or  Son of Adam; so throughout Ezekiel
c  stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.”
2And as he spoke to me, d  the Spirit entered into me and e  set me on my feet, and I heard him speaking to me. 3And he said to me, “Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to f  nations of rebels, who have rebelled against me. g  They and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day. 4The descendants also are h  impudent and stubborn: I send you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord  God.’ 5And i  whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are j  a rebellious house) k  they will know that a prophet has been among them. 6And you, son of man, l  be not afraid of them, nor be afraid of their words, m  though briers and thorns are with you and you sit on n  scorpions.
Or  on scorpion plants
Be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, for they are a rebellious house.
7And you shall speak my words to them, p  whether they hear or refuse to hear, for they are a rebellious house.

8“But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. q  Be not rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and r  eat what I give you.” 9And when I looked, behold, s  a hand was stretched out to me, and behold, t  a scroll of a book was in it. 10And he spread it before me. And it had writing u  on the front and on the back, and there were written on it words of lamentation and mourning and woe.
