Ezekiel 2

1And He said to me, “Son of man, #Dan. 10:11; Acts 9:6stand on your feet, and I will speak to you.” 2Then #Ezek. 3:24; Dan. 8:18the Spirit entered me when He spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard Him who spoke to me. 3And He said to me: “Son of man, I am sending you to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that has #Ezek. 5:6; 20:8, 13, 18rebelled against Me; #1 Sam. 8:7, 8; Jer. 3:25; Ezek. 20:18, 21, 30they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. 4#Ps. 95:8; Is. 48:4; Jer. 5:3; 6:15; Ezek. 3:7For they are impudent and stubborn children. I am sending you to them, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord God.’ 5#Is. 6:9, 10; Ezek. 3:11, 26, 27; (Matt. 10:12–15; Acts 13:46)As for them, whether they hear or whether they refuse—for they are a #Ezek. 3:26rebellious house—yet they #Ezek. 33:33; (Luke 10:10, 11; John 15:22)will know that a prophet has been among them.
6“And you, son of man, #Is. 51:12; Jer. 1:8, 17; Ezek. 3:9; Luke 12:4do not be afraid of them nor be afraid of their words, though #(2 Sam. 23:6, 7; Is. 9:18); Jer. 6:28; Ezek. 28:24; Mic. 7:4briers and thorns are with you and you dwell among scorpions; #Ezek. 3:9; (1 Pet. 3:14)do not be afraid of their words or dismayed by their looks, #Ezek. 3:9, 26, 27though they are a rebellious house. 7#Jer. 1:7, 17; (Ezek. 3:10, 17)You shall speak My words to them, whether they hear or whether they refuse, for they are rebellious. 8But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and #Ezek. 3:1–3; Rev. 10:9eat what I give you.”
9Now when I looked, there was #Jer. 1:9; (Ezek. 8:3)a hand stretched out to me; and behold, #Jer. 36:2; Ezek. 3:1; Rev. 5:1–5; 10:8–11a scroll of a book was in it. 10Then He spread it before me; and there was writing on the inside and on the outside, and written on it were lamentations and mourning and woe.
