Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He said to me, "Son of man, stand up 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 As He spoke to me, the Spirit entered me and set me on my feet, and I listened to the One who was 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 He said to me: "Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites [and] to the rebellious nations who have rebelled against Me. The Israelites and their ancestors have transgressed against Me to this 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 obstinate and hardhearted. I am sending you to them, and you must say to them: This is what the Lord God says. 4 The people to whom I am sending you are obstinate and stubborn. Say to them, 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says.'
5 Whether they listen or refuse [to listen]-for they are a rebellious house-they will know that a prophet has been 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 "But you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words, though briers and thorns are beside you and you live among scorpions. Don't be afraid of their words or be discouraged by [the look on] their faces, 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.
