New King James Version (NKJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Moreover He said to me, "Son of man, eat what you find; 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 caused me to eat that scroll. 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 And He said to me, "Son of man, feed your belly, and fill your stomach with this scroll that I give you." So I ate, and it was in my mouth like honey in 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 Then He said to me: "Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak with 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 sent to a people of unfamiliar speech and of 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 people of unfamiliar speech and of hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, had I 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.
