Moreover the spirit lifted me up, and brought me to the east-gate of the LORD'S house, which looketh eastward: and behold, at the door of the gate five and twenty men; among whom I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azur, and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, princes of the people.
Then said he to me, Son of man, these [are] the men that devise mischief, and give wicked counsel in this city:
Who say, [It is] not near; let us build houses: this [city is] the caldron, and we [are] the flesh.
Therefore prophesy against them, prophesy, O son of man.
And the spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and said to me, Speak; Thus saith the LORD; Thus have ye said, O house of Israel: for I know the things that come into your mind, [every one of] them.
Ye have multiplied your slain in this city, and ye have filled its streets with the slain.
