1And He said to me, “Son of man, #Dan. 10:11Acts 9:6stand on your feet, and I will speak to you.” 2Then #Ezek. 3:24Dan. 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. 5:6Eze 20:81318rebelled against Me; #1 Sam. 8:7Jer. 3:25Ezek. 20:182130they and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. 4#Ps. 95:8Is. 48:4Jer. 5:3Jer 6:15Ezek. 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. 6:9Ezek. 3:112627(Matt. 10:12–15Acts 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 10:1011John 15:22)will know that a prophet has been among them.
6“And you, son of man, #Is. 51:12Jer. 1:817Ezek. 3:9Luke 12:4do not be afraid of them nor be afraid of their words, though #(2 Sam. 23:6Is. 9:18)Jer. 6:28Ezek. 28:24Mic. 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. 3:92627though they are a rebellious house. 7#Jer. 1:717(Ezek. 3:1017)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. 3:1–3Rev. 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. 36:2Ezek. 3:1Rev. 5:1–5Rev 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.
