And he said to me, "Son of man, eat what is offered to you; eat this scroll, and go, speak to the house of Israel."
So I opened my mouth, and he gave me the scroll to eat.
And he said to me, "Son of man, eat this scroll that I give you and fill your stomach with it." Then I ate it; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey.
And he said to me, "Son of man, go, get you to the house of Israel, and speak with my words to them.
For you are not sent to a people of foreign speech and a hard language, but to the house of Israel--
not to many peoples of foreign speech and a hard language, whose words you cannot understand. Surely, if I sent you to such, they would listen to you.
