22 The hand of the LORD was on me there, and He said to me, "Get up, go out to the plain, and there I will 1speak to you."
23 So I got up and went out to the plain; and behold, the 2glory of the LORD was standing there, like the glory which 3I saw by the river Chebar, and I fell on my face.
24 The 4Spirit then entered me and made me stand on my feet, and He spoke with me and said to me, "Go, shut yourself up in your house.
25 "As for you, son of man, they will 5put ropes on you and bind you with them so that you cannot go out among them.
26 "Moreover, 6I will make your tongue stick to the roof of your mouth so that you will be mute and cannot be a man who rebukes them, for they are a rebellious house.
27 "But 7when I speak to you, I will open your mouth and you will say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD.' He who hears, let him hear; and he who refuses, let him refuse; 8for they are a rebellious house.
