026:003:001
Moreover he said unto me,
Son of man,
eat that thou findest;
eat this roll,
and go speak unto the house of Israel.


026:003:002
So I opened my mouth,
and he caused me to eat that roll.


026:003:003
And he said unto me,
Son of man,
cause thy belly to eat,
and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee.
Then did I eat it;
and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.


026:003:004
And he said unto me,
Son of man,
go,
get thee unto the house of Israel,
and speak with my words unto them.


026:003:005
For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of an hard language,
but to the house of Israel;


026:003:006
Not to many people of a strange speech and of an hard language,
whose words thou canst not understand.
Surely,
had I sent thee to them,
they would have hearkened unto thee.


026:003:007
But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee;
for they will not hearken unto me:
for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.


026:003:008
Behold,
I have made thy face strong against their faces,
and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.


026:003:009
As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead:
fear them not,
neither be dismayed at their looks,
though they be a rebellious house.


026:003:010
Moreover he said unto me,
Son of man,
all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart,
and hear with thine ears.


026:003:011
And go,
get thee to them of the captivity,
unto the children of thy people,
and speak unto them,
and tell them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD;
whether they will hear,
or whether they will forbear.


026:003:012
Then the spirit took me up,
and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing,
saying,
Blessed be the glory of the LORD from his place.


026:003:013
I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another,
and the noise of the wheels over against them,
and a noise of a great rushing.


026:003:014
So the spirit lifted me up,
and took me away,
and I went in bitterness,
in the heat of my spirit;
but the hand of the LORD was strong upon me.


026:003:015
Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib,
that dwelt by the river of Chebar,
and I sat where they sat,
and remained there astonished among them seven days.


026:003:016
And it came to pass at the end of seven days,
that the word of the LORD came unto me,
saying,


026:003:017
Son of man,
I have made thee a watchman unto the house of Israel:
therefore hear the word at my mouth,
and give them warning from me.


026:003:018
When I say unto the wicked,
Thou shalt surely die;
and thou givest him not warning,
nor speakest to warn the wicked from his wicked way,
to save his life;
the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity;
but his blood will I require at thine hand.


026:003:019
Yet if thou warn the wicked,
and he turn not from his wickedness,
nor from his wicked way,
he shall die in his iniquity;
but thou hast delivered thy soul.


026:003:020
Again,
When a righteous man doth turn from his righteousness,
and commit iniquity,
and I lay a stumbling-block before him,
he shall die:
because thou hast not given him warning,
he shall die in his sin,
and his righteousness which he hath done shall not be remembered;
but his blood will I require at thine hand.


026:003:021
Nevertheless if thou warn the righteous man,
that the righteous sin not,
and he doth not sin,
he shall surely live,
because he is warned;
also thou hast delivered thy soul.


026:003:022
And the hand of the LORD was there upon me;
and he said unto me,
Arise,
go forth into the plain,
and I will there talk with thee.


026:003:023
Then I arose,
and went forth into the plain:
and,
behold,
the glory of the LORD stood there,
as the glory which I saw by the river of Chebar:
and I fell on my face.


026:003:024
Then the spirit entered into me,
and set me upon my feet,
and spake with me,
and said unto me,
Go,
shut thyself within thine house.


026:003:025
But thou,
O son of man,
behold,
they shall put bands upon thee,
and shall bind thee with them,
and thou shalt not go out among them:


026:003:026
And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth,
that thou shalt be dumb,
and shalt not be to them a reprover:
for they are a rebellious house.


026:003:027
But when I speak with thee,
I will open thy mouth,
and thou shalt say unto them,
Thus saith the Lord GOD;
He that heareth,
let him hear;
and he that forbeareth,
let him forbear:
for they are a rebellious house.
