1The voice said to me: Human one, stand on your feet, and I’ll speak to you. 2As he spoke to me, a wind#Or spirit came to me and stood me on my feet, and I heard someone addressing me. 3He said to me: Human one, I’m sending you to the Israelites, a traitorous and rebellious people. They and their ancestors have been rebelling against me to this very day. 4I’m sending you to their hardheaded and hard-hearted descendants, and you will say to them: The LORD God proclaims. 5Whether they listen or whether they refuse, since they are a household of rebels, they will know that a prophet has been among them.
