The Prophet’s Call

1 Then He said to me, “Son of man, astand on your feet that I may speak with you!” 2 As He spoke to me the aSpirit entered me and set me on my feet; and I heard [Him] speaking to me. 3 Then He said to me, “Son of man, I am sending you to the sons of Israel, to a rebellious people who have arebelled against Me; bthey and their fathers have transgressed against Me to this very day. 4 I am sending you to them who are Iastubborn and obstinate children, and you shall say to them, ‘Thus says the Lord IIGOD.’ 5 As for them, awhether they listen or Inot—for they are a rebellious house—they will bknow that a prophet has been among them. 6 And you, son of man, aneither fear them nor fear their words, though bthistles and thorns are with you and you sit on scorpions; neither fear their words nor be dismayed at their presence, for they are a rebellious house. 7 But you shall aspeak My words to them bwhether they listen or Inot, for they are rebellious.

Ezekiel's commission.

1 ¶ And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. 2 And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. 3 And he said unto me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me, [even] unto this very day. 4 For [they are] impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD. 5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they [are] a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.

His instruction.

6 ¶ And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [be] with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they [be] a rebellious house. 7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they [are] most rebellious. 8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
