Ezekiel 11 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

11 1 Who they were that seduced the people of Israel. 5 Against these he prophesieth, showing them how they shall be dispersed abroad. 19 The renewing of the heart cometh of God. 21 He threateneth them that lean unto their own counsels.

Moreover, the Spirit lifted me up, and brought me unto the East gate of the Lord’s house, which lieth Eastward, and behold, at the entry of the gate were five and twenty men: among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, the princes of the people.

Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that imagine mischief, and devise wicked counsel in this city.

For they say, [a]It is not near, let us build houses: this city is the [b]caldron, and we be the flesh.

Therefore prophesy against them, son of man, prophesy.

And the Spirit of the Lord fell upon me, and said unto me, Speak, Thus saith the Lord, O ye house of Israel, this have ye said, and I know that which riseth up of your minds.

Many have ye murdered in this city, and ye have filled the streets thereof with the slain.

Therefore thus saith the Lord God, They that ye have slain, and have laid in the midst of it, they are [c]the flesh, and this city is the caldron, but I will bring you forth of the midst of it.

Ye have feared the sword, and I will bring a sword upon you, saith the Lord God.

And I will bring you out of the midst thereof, and deliver you into [d]the hands of strangers, and will execute judgments among you.

10 Ye shall fall by the sword, and I will judge you in the border of [e]Israel, and ye shall know that I am the Lord.

11 This city shall not be your caldron, neither shall ye be the flesh in the midst thereof, but I will judge you in the border of Israel.

12 And ye shall know that I am the Lord: for ye have not walked in my statutes, neither executed my judgments, but have done after the manners of the heathen that are round about you.

13 ¶ And when I prophesied, Pelatiah the son of [f]Benaiah died: then fell I down upon my face, and cried with a loud voice, and said, Ah Lord God, wilt thou then utterly destroy all the remnant of Israel?

14 Again the word of the Lord came unto me, saying,

15 Son of man, thy [g]brethren, even thy brethren, the men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel, wholly are they unto whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Depart ye far from the Lord: for the land is given us in possession.

16 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God, Although I have cast them far off among the heathen, and although I have scattered them among the countries, yet will I be to them as a little [h]Sanctuary in the countries where they shall come.

17 Therefore say, Thus saith the Lord God, I will gather you again from the people, and assemble you out of the countries where ye have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

18 And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the idols thereof, and all the abominations thereof from thence.

19 And I will give them one heart, and I will put a new spirit within their bowels: and I will take the [i]stony heart out of their bodies, and will give them an heart of flesh,

20 That they may walk in my statutes, and keep my judgments, and execute them: and they shall be my people, and I will be their God.

21 But upon them, whose heart is toward their idols, and whose affection goeth after their abominations, I will lay their way upon their own heads saith the Lord God.

22 ¶ Then did the Cherubims lift up their wings, and the wheels beside them, and the glory of the God of Israel was upon them on high.

23 And the glory of the Lord went up from the midst of the city, and stood upon the mountain which is toward the East side of the city.

24 Afterward the Spirit took me up, and brought me in a vision by the Spirit of God into Chaldea to them that were led away captives: so the vision that I had seen, went up from me.

25 Then I declared unto them that were [j]led away captives, all the things that the Lord had showed me.


  1. Ezekiel 11:3 Thus the wicked derided the Prophets, as though they preached but errors, and therefore gave themselves still to their pleasures.
  2. Ezekiel 11:3 We shall not be pulled out of Jerusalem, till the hour of our death come, as the flesh is not taken out of the caldron till it be sod.
  3. Ezekiel 11:7 Contrary to their vain confidence he showeth in what sense the city is the caldron: that is, because of the dead bodies that have been murdered therein, and so lie as flesh in the caldron.
  4. Ezekiel 11:9 That is, of the Chaldeans.
  5. Ezekiel 11:10 That is, in Riblah, read 2 Kings 25:6.
  6. Ezekiel 11:13 It seemeth that this noble man died of some terrible death, and therefore the Prophet feared some strange judgment of God toward the rest of the people.
  7. Ezekiel 11:15 They that remained still at Jerusalem thus reproached them that were gone into captivity, as though they were cast off and forsaken of God.
  8. Ezekiel 11:16 They shall be yet a little Church: showing that the Lord will ever have some to call upon his Name, whom he will preserve and restore, though they be for a time afflicted.
  9. Ezekiel 11:19 Meaning, the heart whereunto nothing can enter, and regenerate them anew, so that their heart may be soft, and ready to receive my graces.
  10. Ezekiel 11:25 When Jeconiah was led away captive.
