Ezekiel 12

12:1 The word of the LORD also came to me, saying,
12:2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious
 house, who have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to
 hear, and hear not: for they [are] a rebellious house.
12:3 Therefore, thou son of man, prepare thee stuff for
 removing, and remove by day in their sight; and thou shalt
 remove from thy place to another place in their sight; it may
 be they will consider, though they [are] a rebellious house.
12:4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their
 sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at
 evening in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.
12:5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out
12:6 In their sight shalt thou bear [it] upon [thy] shoulders,
 [and] carry [it] forth in the twilight: thou shalt cover thy
 face, that thou mayest not see the ground: for I have set thee
 [for] a sign to the house of Israel.
12:7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff
 by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the evening I digged
 through the wall with my hand; I brought [it] forth in the
 twilight, [and] I bore [it] upon [my] shoulder in their sight.
12:8 And in the morning came the word of the LORD to me, saying,
12:9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious
 house, said to thee, What doest thou?
12:10 Say thou to them, Thus saith the Lord GOD, This burden
 [concerneth] the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of
 Israel that [are] among them.
12:11 Say, I [am] your sign: as I have done, so shall it be done
 to them: they shall remove [and] go into captivity.
12:12 And the prince that [is] among them shall bear upon [his]
 shoulder in the twilight, and shall go forth: they shall dig
 through the wall to carry out thereby: he shall cover his face,
 that he may not see the ground with [his] eyes.
12:13 My net also will I spread upon him, and he shall be taken
 in my snare: and I will bring him to Babylon [to] the land of
 the Chaldeans, yet shall he not see it, though he shall die
12:14 And I will scatter towards every wind all that [are] about
 him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the
 sword after them.
12:15 And they shall know that I [am] the LORD, when I shall
 scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the
12:16 But I will leave a few men of them from the sword, from
 the famine, and from the pestilence; that they may declare all
 their abominations among the heathen whither they come; and
 they shall know that I [am] the LORD.
12:17 Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
12:18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy
 water with trembling and with solicitude.
12:19 And say to the people of the land, Thus saith the Lord GOD
 of the inhabitants of Jerusalem, [and] of the land of Israel;
 They shall eat their bread with solicitude, and drink their
 water with astonishment, that her land may be desolate from all
 that is therein, because of the violence of all them that dwell
12:20 And the cities that are inhabited shall be laid waste, and
 the land shall be desolate; and ye shall know that I [am] the
12:21 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
12:22 Son of man, what [is] that proverb [that] ye have in the
 land of Israel, saying, The days are prolonged, and every
 vision faileth?
12:23 Tell them therefore, Thus saith the Lord GOD: I will make
 this proverb to cease, and they shall no more use it as a
 proverb in Israel; but say to them, The days are at hand, and
 the effect of every vision.
12:24 For there shall no more be any vain vision nor flattering
 divination within the house of Israel.
12:25 For I [am] the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I
 shall speak shall come to pass; it shall no more be prolonged:
 for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and
 will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.
12:26 Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
12:27 Son of man, behold, [they of] the house of Israel say, The
 vision that he seeth [is] for many days [to come], and he
 prophesieth of the times [that are] distant.
12:28 Therefore say to them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There
 shall none of my words be further deferred, but the word which
 I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.
