AND HE said to me [Ezekiel], Son of man, stand upon your feet and I will speak to you.
And the Spirit entered into me when He spoke to me and set me upon my feet, and I heard Him speaking to me.
And He said to me, I send you, son of man, to the children of Israel, two rebellious nations that have rebelled against Me. They and their fathers have transgressed against Me even to this very day.
And the children are impudent and hard of heart. I send you to them and you shall say to them, Thus says the Lord God.
