3 Then He said to me, “Son of man, eat what you find; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.”2 So I opened my mouth, and He fed me this scroll.3 He said to me, “Son of man, feed your stomach and fill your [a]body with this scroll which I am giving you.” Then I ate it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth.
4 Then He said to me, “Son of man, [b]go to the house of Israel and speak with My words to them.5 For you are not being sent to a people of [c]unintelligible speech or difficult language, but to the house of Israel,6 nor to many peoples of [d]unintelligible speech or difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. [e]But I have sent you to them [f]who should listen to you;7 yet the house of Israel will not be willing to listen to you, since they are not willing to listen to Me. Surely the whole house of Israel is [g]stubborn and obstinate.8 Behold, I have made your face as hard as their faces and your forehead as hard as their foreheads.9 Like [h]emery harder than flint I have made your forehead. Do not be afraid of them or be dismayed before them, though they are a rebellious house.”10 Moreover, He said to me, “Son of man, take into your heart all My words which I will speak to you and listen [i]closely.11 [j]Go to the exiles, to the sons of your people, and speak to them and tell them, whether they listen or [k]not, ‘Thus says the Lord [l]God.’”
12 Then the Spirit lifted me up, and I heard a great rumbling sound behind me, “Blessed be the glory of the Lord[m]in His place.”13 And I heard the sound of the wings of the living beings touching one another and the sound of the wheels beside them, even a great rumbling sound.
