Ezekiel 11:1-6 CEB

1 A wind lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the LORD's temple. There at the entrance to the gate were twenty-five men, and I saw that two officials of the people, Jaazaniah, Azzur's son, and Pelatiah, Benaiah's son, were with them.
2 He said to me: Human one, these men devise evil plans and give wicked advice in this city.
3 They are the ones who say, "The nearest relatives aren't building houses.a The city is the cooking pot, and we are the meat."
