Moreover the spirit lifted me up , and brought me unto the eastgate of the LORD'Shouse, which looketheastward: and behold at the door of the gatefive and twentymen;among whom I sawJaazaniah the son of Azur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah,princes of the people.2
Then said he unto me, Son of man, these are the men that devisemischief, and givewickedcounsel in this city:3
Which say , It is not near; let us buildhouses: this city is the caldron, and we be the flesh.4
Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy , O son of man.5
And the Spirit of the LORDfell upon me, and said unto me, Speak ; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have ye said , O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, every one of them.
Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled the streets thereof with the slain.
