God said, "Mortal man, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the people of Israel." 12
So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
He said, "Mortal man, eat this scroll that I give you; fill your stomach with it." I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey.
Then God said, "Mortal man, go to the people of Israel and say to them whatever I tell you to say.
I am not sending you to a nation that speaks a difficult foreign language, but to the Israelites.
If I sent you to great nations that spoke difficult languages you didn't understand, they would listen to you.
But none of the people of Israel will be willing to listen; they will not even listen to me. All of them are stubborn and defiant.
