Ezekiel 2:1-7 WBT

1 And he said to me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak to thee.
2 And the spirit entered into me when he spoke to me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spoke to me.
3 And he said to me, Son of man, I send thee to the children of Israel, to a rebellious nation that hath rebelled against me: they and their fathers have transgressed against me: [even] to this very day.
4 For [they are] impudent children and obstinate in heart. I send thee to them; and thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the Lord GOD.
5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, (for they [are] a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns [are] with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they [are] a rebellious house.
7 And thou shalt speak my words to them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they [are] most rebellious.
