1 And he said to me: the son of man! eat what is before you, eat this scroll, and go speak to the house of Israel.
2 Then I opened my mouth, and He gave me to eat this scroll;
3 and said unto me, Son of man! fill your womb and fill your inside with this scroll, which I give to you; and I ate, and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey.
4 And He said to me: Son of man! get up and go to the house of Israel, and speak to them in my words;
5 for you are not sent to the people with slurred speech and with incomprehensible language, but to the house of Israel,
6 not to many nations with slurred speech and with incomprehensible language, whose words you would not understand; Yes, if I sent you to them, they would obey you;
7 but the house of Israel will not want to listen to you; for they do not want to listen to Me, because the whole house of Israel with a strong forehead and a cruel heart.
eight Behold, I have made your face strong against their faces, and your forehead strong against their forehead.
nine Like a diamond, which is stronger than stone, I have made your forehead; Do not be afraid of them, and not be afraid of their faces, for they are a rebellious house.
ten And he said to me: the son of man! accept all my words that I speak unto you with your heart, and hear with your ears;
eleven get up and go to the displaced, to the sons of your people, and speak to them, and say to them: `Thus saith the Lord God! ' whether they will listen or not.
12 And the spirit lifted me up; and I heard behind me a great thunderous voice: `` Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place! ''
13 and also the noise of the wings of animals touching one another, and the sound of wheels beside them, and the sound of strong thunder.
fourteen And the spirit lifted me up and took me And I walked in chagrin, with a troubled spirit; and the hand of the Lord was strong on me.
fifteen And I came to those displaced in Tel Aviv, who lived by the river Chebar, and stopped where they lived, and spent among them seven days in amazement.

16 And after seven days the word of the Lord came to me:
17 son of man! I have made you a guardian of the house of Israel, and you will listen to the word from My mouth, and you will admonish them from Me.
18 When I say to the wicked: `` you will die death! '', And you will not admonish him and speak in order to guard the wicked from his lawless way, so that he lives, then the wicked will die in his iniquity, and I will seek his blood from your hands.
19 But if you admonished the wicked, and he did not turn from his lawlessness and from his lawless way, then he will die in his lawlessness, and you have saved your soul.
20 And if the righteous departs from his righteousness and acts unlawfully when I put a stumbling block before him and he dies, then if you did not admonish him, he will die for his sin, and his righteous deeds which he did will not be remembered; and I will seek his blood from your hands.
21 If you will admonish the righteous, so that the righteous do not sin, and he does not sin, then he will be alive, because he was enlightened, and you saved your soul.

22 And the hand of the Lord was on me there, and He said to me: Rise and go out into the field, and I will speak there with you.
23 And I arose, and went out into the field; and behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, like the glory that I saw by the river Chebar; and I fell on my face.
24 And a spirit came into me, and set me on my feet, and He spoke to me, and said to me: Go and shut yourself in your house.
25 And you, the son of man, are here to lay ties on you, and bind you with them, and you will not walk among them.
26 And I will stick your tongue to your larynx, and you will become numb, and you will not be the accuser of them, for they are a rebellious house.
27 And when I speak with you, then I will open your mouth, and you will say to them: `Thus saith the Lord God! ' who wants to listen, listen; but he who does not want to listen, do not listen: for they are a rebellious house.
