As for them, whether they hear or whether they refuse--for they are a rebellious house--yet they will know that a prophet has been among them.
"And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them nor be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you and you dwell among scorpions; do not be afraid of their words or dismayed by their looks, though they are a rebellious house.
You shall speak My words to them, whether they hear or whether they refuse, for they are rebellious.
But you, son of man, hear what I say to you. Do not be rebellious like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you."

Then He spread it before me; and there was writing on the inside and on the outside, and written on it were lamentations and mourning and woe.
