Young's Literal Translation (YLT) New International Version (NIV)
1 And He saith unto me, `Son of man, that which thou findest eat, eat this roll, and go, speak unto 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 And I open my mouth, and He causeth me to eat this roll. 2 So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
3 And He saith unto me, `Son of man, thy belly thou dost feed, and thy bowels thou dost fill with this roll that I am giving unto thee;' and I eat it, and it is in my mouth as honey for 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 And He saith unto me, `Son of man, go, enter in unto the house of Israel, and thou hast spoken with My words unto 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, not unto a people deep of lip and heavy of tongue [art] thou sent -- unto 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 unto many peoples, deep of lip and heavy of tongue, whose words thou dost not understand. If I had not sent thee unto them -- they, they do hearken unto 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.
