New Century Version (NCV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Then the Lord said to me, "Human, eat what you ind; eat this scroll. Then go and 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, "Human, eat this scroll which I am giving you, and fill your stomach with it." Then 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, "Human, 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 You are not being sent to people whose speech you can't understand, whose language is difficult. You are being sent to 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 nations whose speech you can't understand, whose language is difficult, whose words you cannot understand. If I had sent you to them, they would have listened 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.
