1 And he said to me, "Son of man, stand on your feet, so that I can speak with you." 1 He said to me, "Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you."
2 And [the] Spirit came into me as he was speaking to me, and it set me on my feet, and I heard the one speaking to me. 2 As he spoke, the Spirit came into me and raised me to my feet, and I heard him speaking to me.
3 And he said to me, "Son of man, I am sending you to the {Israelites}, to nations [who are] rebelling, who rebelled against me, they and their ancestors, they transgressed against me {until this very day}. 3 He said: "Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, to a rebellious nation that has rebelled against me; they and their fathers have been in revolt against me to this very day.
4 And the children [are] {impudent} and {stubborn}, [and so] I am sending you to them, and you must say to them, 'Thus says the Lord Yahweh!' 4 The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says.'
5 And they, whether they listen or whether they fail [to listen], for they [are] a rebellious house, they will know that a prophet was in their midst. 5 And whether they listen or fail to listen--for they are a rebellious house--they will know that a prophet has been among them.
6 And you, son of man, you must not be afraid of them, and you must not be afraid of their words, because briers and thorns [are] with you, and you [are] sitting among scorpions. You must not be afraid of their words, and you must not be dismayed because of their {looks}, for they [are] a rebellious house. 6 And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or terrified by them, though they are a rebellious house.
7 And you must speak my words to them whether they listen or whether they fail [to listen], for they [are] rebellious. 7 You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.
8 And you, son of man, hear what I [am] speaking to you: you must not be rebellious like [the] house of rebellion. Open your mouth and eat what I [am] giving to you." 8 But you, son of man, listen to what I say to you. Do not rebel like that rebellious house; open your mouth and eat what I give you."
9 And I looked, and look! There was a hand stretched out to me, and look! In it [was] {a scroll with writing}. 9 Then I looked, and I saw a hand stretched out to me. In it was a scroll,
10 And he rolled it out {before me}, and it [was] written [on the] front and back, and there [were] written on it laments and mourning and wailing. 10 which he unrolled before me. On both sides of it were written words of lament and mourning and woe.
