Holman Christian Standard (CSB) New International Version (NIV)
1 He said to me: "Son of man, eat what you find [here]. Eat this scroll, then go and 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 "Son of man," he said to me, "eat and fill your stomach with this scroll I am giving you." So I ate [it], and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth. 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: "Son of man, 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 For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech or difficult 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 [You are] not [being sent] to many peoples of unintelligible speech or difficult language, whose words you cannot understand. No doubt, if I sent 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.
