Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 It [is] the appearance of the likeness of the honour of Jehovah, and I see, and fall on my face, and I hear a voice speaking, and He saith unto me, `Son of man, stand on thy feet, and I speak with thee.' 1 He said to me, "Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you."
2 And there doth come into me a spirit, when He hath spoken unto me, and it causeth me to stand on my feet, and I hear Him who is speaking unto 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 saith unto Me, `Son of man, I am sending thee unto the sons of Israel, unto nations who are rebels, who have rebelled against Me; they and their fathers have transgressed against Me, unto this self-same 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 sons [are] brazen-faced and hard-hearted to whom I am sending thee, and thou hast said unto them: Thus said the Lord Jehovah: 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 hear, or whether they forbear, for a rebellious house they [are] -- have known that a prophet hath been 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 thou, son of man, thou art not afraid of them, yea, of their words thou art not afraid, for briers and thorns are with thee, and near scorpions thou art dwelling, of their words thou art not afraid, and of their faces thou art not affrighted, 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 thou hast spoken My words unto them, whether they hear or whether they forbear, 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 thou, son of man, hear that which I am speaking unto thee: Thou art not rebellious like the rebellious house, open thy mouth, and eat that which I am giving unto thee.' 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 look, and lo, a hand [is] sent forth unto me, and lo, in it a roll of a book, 9 Then I looked, and I saw a hand stretched out to me. In it was a scroll,
10 and He spreadeth it before me, and it is written in front and behind, and written on it [are] lamentations, and mourning, and wo! 10 which he unrolled before me. On both sides of it were written words of lament and mourning and woe.
