Ezekiel 3

3:1 Moreover he said to me, Son of man, eat what thou findest;
 eat this roll, and go, speak to the house of Israel.
3:2 So I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that roll.
3:3 And he said to me, Son of man, cause thy belly to eat, and
 fill thy bowels with this roll that I give thee. Then did I eat
 [it]; and it was in my mouth as honey for sweetness.
3:4 And he said to me, Son of man, depart, go to the house of
 Israel, and speak with my words to them.
3:5 For thou art not sent to a people of a strange speech and of
 a hard language, [but] to the house of Israel;
3:6 Not to many people of a strange speech and of a hard
 language, whose words thou canst not understand. Surely, had I
 sent thee to them, they would have hearkened to thee.
3:7 But the house of Israel will not hearken to thee; for they
 will not hearken to me: for all the house of Israel [are]
 impudent and hard-hearted.
3:8 Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and
 thy forehead strong against their foreheads.
3:9 As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead:
 fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they
 [are] a rebellious house.
3:10 Moreover he said to me, Son of man, all my words that I
 shall speak to thee receive in thy heart, and hear with thy
3:11 And depart, go to them of the captivity, to the children of
 thy people, and speak to them, and tell them, Thus saith the
 Lord GOD; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
3:12 Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice
 of a great rushing, [saying], Blessed [be] the glory of the
 LORD from his place.
3:13 [I heard] also the noise of the wings of the living
 creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels
 over against them, and the noise of a great rushing.
3:14 So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in
 bitterness, in the heat of my spirit; but the hand of the LORD
 was strong upon me.
3:15 Then I came to them of the captivity at Tel-abib, that
 dwelt by the river of Kebar, and I sat where they sat, and
 remained there astonished among them seven days.
3:16 And it came to pass at the end of seven days, that the word
 of the LORD came to me, saying,
3:17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of
 Israel: therefore hear the word at my mouth, and give them
 warning from me.
3:18 When I say to the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou
 givest him not warning, nor speakest to warn the wicked from
 his wicked way, to save his life; the same wicked [man] shall
 die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thy hand.
3:19 Yet if thou shalt warn the wicked, and he shall not turn
 from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in
 his iniquity; but thou hast delivered thy soul.
3:20 Again, When a righteous [man] doth turn from his
 righteousness, and commit iniquity, and I lay a stumbling-block
 before him, he shall die: because thou hast not given him
 warning, he shall die in his sin, and his righteousness which
 he hath done shall not be remembered; but his blood will I
 require at thy hand.
3:21 Nevertheless if thou shalt warn the righteous [man], that
 the righteous sin not, and he doth not sin, he shall surely
 live, because he is warned; also thou hast delivered thy soul.
3:22 And the hand of the LORD was there upon me; and he said to
 me, Arise, go forth into the plain, and I will there talk with
3:23 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 Kebar: and I fell on my face.
3:24 Then the spirit entered into me, and set me upon my feet,
 and spoke with me, and said to me, Go, shut thyself within thy
3:25 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:
3:26 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.
3:27 But when I speak with thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou
 shalt say to 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.
