Ezekiel 2

The Prophet’s Call

Then He said to me, “Son of man a stand on your feet that I may speak with you!” As He spoke to me the b Spirit entered me and set me on my feet; and I heard Him speaking to me. Then He said to me, “Son of man, I am sending you to the sons of Israel, to a rebellious people who have c rebelled against Me; d they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. I am sending you to them who are
Lit the sons, stiff-faced and hard-hearted
f stubborn and obstinate children, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord
Heb YHWH, usually rendered  Lord
“As for them, h whether they listen or
Lit forbear
not— for they are a rebellious house— they will j know that a prophet has been among them.
And you, son of man, k neither fear them nor fear their words, though l thistles and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions; neither fear their words nor be dismayed at their presence, for they are a rebellious house. “But you shall m speak My words to them n whether they listen or
Lit forbear
not, for they are rebellious.

Now you, son of man, listen to what I am speaking to you; do not be rebellious like that rebellious house. Open your mouth and p eat what I am giving you.” Then I looked, and behold, a q hand was extended to me; and lo, a
Lit scroll of a book
s scroll was in it.
10 When He spread it out before me, it was written on the front and back, and written on it were lamentations, mourning and t woe.
