He said to me, "Son of man, eat what is in front of you. Eat this scroll. Then go and speak to the people of Israel."
So I opened my mouth. And he gave me the scroll to eat.
Then he said to me, "Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you. Fill your stomach with it." So I ate it. And it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.
Then he said to me, "Son of man, go to the people of Israel. Give them my message.
"I am not sending you to people who speak another language that is hard to learn. Instead, I am sending you to the people of Israel.
You are not being sent to many nations whose people speak other languages that are hard to learn. You would not be able to understand them. Suppose I had sent you to them. Then they certainly would have listened to you.
