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.
And I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that book:
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.
And he said to me: Son of man, go to the house of Israel, and thou shalt speak my words to them.
For thou art not sent to a people of a profound speech, and of an unknown tongue, but to the house of Israel:
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.
But the house of Israel will not hearken to thee: because they will not hearken to me: for all the house of Israel are of a hard forehead and an obstinate heart.
