Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 And he said to me: Son of man, eat all that thou shalt find: eat this book, and go speak to the children 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 And I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that book: 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 And he said to me: Son of man, thy belly shall eat, and thy bowels shall be filled with this book, which I give thee, and I did eat it: and it was 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 And he said to me: Son of man, go to the house of Israel, and thou shalt 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 thou art not sent to a people of a profound speech, and of an unknown tongue, 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 Nor to many nations of a strange speech, and of an unknown tongue, whose words thou canst not understand: and if thou wert sent to them, they would hearken to thee. 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.
