GOD'S WORD Translation (GW) New International Version (NIV)
1 The LORD said to me, "Son of man, eat what you find. Eat this scroll. Then speak to the people 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 gave me the scroll to eat. 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 He said to me, "Son of man, eat this scroll I'm giving you, and fill your stomach with it." So I ate it, and it tasted 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 He said to me, "Son of man, go to the people 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 I am not sending you to people whose language is hard to understand or difficult to speak. I am sending you to Israel. 5 You are not being sent to a people of obscure speech and difficult language, but to the house of Israel--
6 I am not sending you to nations whose language is hard to understand, difficult to speak, or whose words you cannot understand. If I send you to those nations, they will certainly 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.
