The LORD's power overcame me, and he said to me: Get up! Go out to the valley, and I'll speak to you there.
So I got up and went out to the valley. Suddenly, the LORD's glory stood there, like the glory that I had seen at the Chebar River, and I fell on my face.
When a wind came to me and stood me on my feet, he spoke to me and said: Go, shut yourself up inside your house.
Look at you, human one! They've now put cords on you and bound you up so that you can't go out among them.
I'll make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth and take away your ability to speak. You won't be able to correct them, because they are a household of rebels.
But whenever I speak to you, I'll open your mouth, and you will say to them: The LORD God proclaims. Those who hear will understand, but those who refuse will not. They are just a household of rebels.
