1 Ezekiels commission: 6 His instruction. 9 The roule of his heauie prophecie.
And he said vnto me, Son of man, stand vpon thy feete, and I will speake vnto thee.
And the spirit entred into me, when hee spake vnto me, and set me vpon my feete, that I heard him that spake vnto me:
And hee said vnto me, Sonne of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against mee: they and their fathers haue transgressed against mee, euen vnto this very day.3
For they are impudent children and stiffe hearted: I doe send thee vnto them, and thou shalt say vnto them, Thus sayth the Lord God.4
And they, whether they wil heare or whether they will forbeare, (for they are a rebellious house) yet shall know that there hath bene a Prophet among them.
¶ And thou sonne of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their wordes, though bryars and thornes be with thee, and thou doest dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their lookes, though they be a rebellious house.6
And thou shalt speake my words vnto them, whether they will heare or whether they will forbeare, for they are most rebellious.7
But thou, sonne of man, heare what I say vnto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth and eate that I giue thee.8
¶ And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent vnto mee, and loe, a roule of a booke was therein.
And he spread it before me, and it was written within and without, and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
