Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And lift me up doth a spirit, and it bringeth me in unto the east gate of the house of Jehovah, that is facing the east, and lo, at the opening of the gate twenty and five men, and I see in their midst Jaazaniah son of Azzur, and Pelatiah son of Benaiah, heads of the people. 1 Then the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the gate of the house of the LORD that faces east. There at the entrance to the gate were twenty-five men, and I saw among them Jaazaniah son of Azzur and Pelatiah son of Benaiah, leaders of the people.
2 And He saith unto me, `Son of man, these [are] the men who are devising iniquity, and who are giving evil counsel in this city; 2 The LORD said to me, "Son of man, these are the men who are plotting evil and giving wicked advice in this city.
3 who are saying, It [is] not near -- to build houses, it [is] the pot, and we the flesh. 3 They say, 'Will it not soon be time to build houses? This city is a cooking pot, and we are the meat.'
4 Therefore prophesy concerning them, prophesy, son of man.' 4 Therefore prophesy against them; prophesy, son of man."
5 And fall upon me doth the Spirit of Jehovah, and He saith unto me, `Say: Thus said Jehovah: Rightly ye have said, O house of Israel, And the steps of your spirit I have known. 5 Then the Spirit of the LORD came upon me, and he told me to say: "This is what the LORD says: That is what you are saying, O house of Israel, but I know what is going through your mind.
6 Ye multiplied your wounded in this city, And filled its out-places with the wounded. 6 You have killed many people in this city and filled its streets with the dead.
7 Therefore, thus said the Lord Jehovah: Your wounded whom ye placed in its midst, They [are] the flesh, and it [is] the pot, And you he hath brought out from its midst. 7 "Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: The bodies you have thrown there are the meat and this city is the pot, but I will drive you out of it.
8 A sword ye have feared, And a sword I bring in against you, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah. 8 You fear the sword, and the sword is what I will bring against you, declares the Sovereign LORD.
9 And I have brought you out of its midst, And given you into the hand of strangers, And I have done among you judgments. 9 I will drive you out of the city and hand you over to foreigners and inflict punishment on you.
10 By the sword ye do fall, On the border of Israel I do judge you, And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah. 10 You will fall by the sword, and I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel. Then you will know that I am the LORD.
11 It is not to you for a pot, Nor are ye in its midst for flesh, At the border of Israel I do judge you. 11 This city will not be a pot for you, nor will you be the meat in it; I will execute judgment on you at the borders of Israel.
12 And ye have known that I [am] Jehovah, For in My statutes ye have not walked, And My Judgments ye have not done, And according to the judgments of the nations Who are round about you -- ye have done!' 12 And you will know that I am the LORD, for you have not followed my decrees or kept my laws but have conformed to the standards of the nations around you."
13 And it cometh to pass, at my prophesying, that Pelatiah son of Benaiah is dying, and I fall on my face, and cry -- a loud voice -- and say, `Ah, Lord Jehovah, an end Thou art making of the remnant of Israel.' 13 Now as I was prophesying, Pelatiah son of Benaiah died. Then I fell facedown and cried out in a loud voice, "Ah, Sovereign LORD! Will you completely destroy the remnant of Israel?"
14 And there is a word of Jehovah unto me, saying, 14 The word of the LORD came to me:
15 `Son of man, thy brethren, thy brethren, men of thy kindred, and all the house of Israel -- all of it, [are] they to whom inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Keep far off from Jehovah; 15 "Son of man, your brothers--your brothers who are your blood relatives and the whole house of Israel--are those of whom the people of Jerusalem have said, 'They are far away from the LORD; this land was given to us as our possession.'
16 it [is] ours, the land hath been given for an inheritance; therefore say: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: Because I put them afar off among nations, And because I scattered them through lands, I also am to them for a little sanctuary, In lands whither they have gone in. 16 "Therefore say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Although I sent them far away among the nations and scattered them among the countries, yet for a little while I have been a sanctuary for them in the countries where they have gone.'
17 Therefore say: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: And I have assembled you from the peoples, And I have gathered you from the lands, Into which ye have been scattered, And I have given to you the ground of Israel. 17 "Therefore say: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will gather you from the nations and bring you back from the countries where you have been scattered, and I will give you back the land of Israel again.'
18 And they have gone in thither. And turned aside all its detestable things, And all its abominations -- out of it. 18 "They will return to it and remove all its vile images and detestable idols.
19 And I have given to them one heart, And a new spirit I do give in your midst, And I have turned the heart of stone out of their flesh, And I have given to them a heart of flesh. 19 I will give them an undivided heart and put a new spirit in them; I will remove from them their heart of stone and give them a heart of flesh.
20 So that in My statutes they walk, And My judgments they keep, and have done them, And they have been to me for a people, And I am to them for God. 20 Then they will follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws. They will be my people, and I will be their God.
21 As to those whose heart is going unto the heart Of their detestable and their abominable things, Their way on their head I have put, An affirmation of the Lord Jehovah.' 21 But as for those whose hearts are devoted to their vile images and detestable idols, I will bring down on their own heads what they have done, declares the Sovereign LORD."
22 And the cherubs lift up their wings, and the wheels [are] over-against them, and the honour of the God of Israel [is] over them above. 22 Then the cherubim, with the wheels beside them, spread their wings, and the glory of the God of Israel was above them.
23 And the honour of Jehovah goeth up from off the midst of the city, and standeth on the mountain, that [is] on the east of the city. 23 The glory of the LORD went up from within the city and stopped above the mountain east of it.
24 And a spirit hath lifted me up, and bringeth me in to Chaldea, unto the Removed, in a vision, by the Spirit of God, and go up from off me doth the vision that I have seen; 24 The Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the exiles in Babylonia in the vision given by the Spirit of God. Then the vision I had seen went up from me,
25 and I speak unto the Removed all the matters of Jehovah that He hath shewed me. 25 and I told the exiles everything the LORD had shown me.
