Ezekiel 2:1-5New International Version - UK (NIVUK)
Ezekiel’s call to be a prophet
2 He said to me, ‘Son of man, [a] stand up on your feet and I will speak to you.’ 2 As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
3 He said: ‘Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have been in revolt against me to this very day. 4 The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, “This is what the Sovereign Lord says.” 5 And whether they listen or fail to listen – for they are a rebellious people – they will know that a prophet has been among them.
