He said to me, "Son of man,1 stand2 up on your feet and I will speak to you.3"
As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me4 to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
He said: "Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their fathers have been in revolt against me to this very day.54
The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn.6 Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says.'75
And whether they listen or fail to listen8--for they are a rebellious house9--they will know that a prophet has been among them.10
