He said to me, O mortal, eat what is offered to you; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.
So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
He said to me, Mortal, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it. Then I ate it; and in my mouth it was as sweet as honey.
He said to me: Mortal, go to the house of Israel and speak my very words to them.
For you are not sent to a people of obscure speech and difficult language, but to the house of Israel—
not to many peoples of obscure speech and difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to them, they would listen to you.
But the house of Israel will not listen to you, for they are not willing to listen to me; because all the house of Israel have a hard forehead and a stubborn heart.
