World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He said to me, Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak with you. 1 He said to me, "Son of man, stand up on your feet and I will speak to you."
2 The Spirit entered into me when he spoke to me, and set me on my feet; and I heard him who spoke 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 He said to me, Son of man, I send you to the children of Israel, to nations that are rebellious, which have rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me even to 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 The children are impudent and stiff-hearted: I do sent you to them; and you shall tell 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 They, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there has been a prophet among them. 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 You, son of man, don't be afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns are with you, and you do dwell among scorpions: don't be afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though 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 You shall speak my words to them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear; for they are most rebellious. 7 You must speak my words to them, whether they listen or fail to listen, for they are rebellious.
8 But you, son of man, hear what I tell you; don't be you rebellious like that rebellious house: open your mouth, and eat that which I give 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 When I looked, behold, a hand was put forth to me; and, behold, a scroll of a book was therein; 9 Then I looked, and I saw a hand stretched out to me. In it was a scroll,
10 He spread it before me: and it was written within and without; and there were written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe. 10 which he unrolled before me. On both sides of it were written words of lament and mourning and woe.
