Common English Bible (CEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then he said to me: Human one, eat this thing that you've found. Eat this scroll and go, speak to 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 fed me the scroll. 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 He said to me: Human one, feed your belly and fill your stomach with this scroll that I give you. So I ate it, and in my mouth it became as sweet as honey. 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 Then he said to me: Human one, go! Go to the house of Israel and speak my words to them. 4 He then said to me: "Son of man, go now to the house of Israel and speak my words to them.
5 You aren't being sent to a people whose language and speech are difficult and obscure 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 No, not to many peoples who speak difficult and obscure languages, whose words you wouldn't understand. If I did send you to them, they would listen to you. 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.
