The hand of the LORD was on me there, and He said to me, "Get up, go out to the plain, and there I will 1speak to you."
So I got up and went out to the plain; and behold, the 2glory of the LORD was standingthere, like the glorywhich3I saw by the riverChebar, and I fell on my face.
The 4Spirit then entered me and made me stand on my feet, and He spoke with me and said to me, "Go, shut yourself up in your house.
"As for you, son of man, they will 5putropes on you and bind you with them so that you cannotgo out among them.
"Moreover, 6I will make your tonguestick to athe roof of your mouth so that you will be mute and cannot be a man who rebukes them, for they are a rebellioushouse.
"But 7when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, 'Thussays the LordbGOD.' He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; 8for they are a rebellioushouse.
