And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and He said unto me, "Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with thee."
Then I arose and went forth into the plain, and behold, the glory of the LORD stood there, as the glory which I saw by the River of Chebar; and I fell on my face.
Then the Spirit entered into me and set me upon my feet, and spoke with me and said unto me, "Go, shut thyself within thine house.
But thou, O son of man, behold, they shall put bands upon thee and shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not go out among them.
And I will make thy tongue cleave to the roof of thy mouth, that thou shalt be dumb and shalt not be to them a reprover, for they are a rebellious house.
But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say unto them, `Thus saith the Lord GOD.' He that heareth, let him hear; and he that forbeareth, let him forbear; for they are a rebellious house.
