American Standard Version (ASV) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he said unto me, Son of man, eat that which thou findest; eat this roll, and go, speak unto the house of Israel. 1 And he said to me, "Son of man, eat what is before you, eat this scroll; then go and speak to the house of Israel."
2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat the roll. 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 And he said unto me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat it; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness. 3 Then he said to me, "Son of man, eat this scroll I am giving you and fill your stomach with it." So I ate it, and it tasted as sweet as honey in my mouth.
4 And he said unto me, Son of man, go, get thee unto the house of Israel, and speak with my words unto them. 4 He then said to me: "Son of man, go now to the house of Israel and speak my words to them.
5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of a hard language, but to the house of Israel; 5 You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and difficult language, but to the house of Israel--
6 not to many peoples of a strange speech and of a hard language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, if I sent thee to them, they would hearken unto thee. 6 not to many peoples of obscure speech and difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely if I had sent you to them, they would have listened to you.
