1 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
2 "Fili hominis, in medio domus exasperantis tu habitas, qui oculos habent ad videndum et non vident, et aures ad audiendum et non audiunt, quia domus exasperans est.
3 Tu ergo, fili hominis, fac tibi vasa transmigrationis et transmigrabis per diem coram eis; transmigrabis autem de loco tuo ad locum alterum in conspectu eorum, si forte aspiciant, quia domus exasperans est.
4 Et efferes foras vasa tua quasi vasa transmigrantis per diem in conspectu eorum; tu autem egredieris vespere coram eis, sicut egreditur migrans.
5 Ante oculos eorum perfode tibi parietem et efferes per eum;
6 in conspectu eorum in umeris portabis, in caligine efferes: faciem tuam velabis et non videbis terram, quia portentum dedi te domui Israel".
7 Feci ergo, sicut praeceperat mihi Dominus: vasa mea protuli quasi vasa transmigrantis per diem et vespere perfodi mihi parietem manu; et in caligine extuli in umeris portans in conspectu eorum.
8 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me mane dicens:
9 "Fili hominis, numquid non dixerunt ad te domus Israel, domus exasperans: "Quid tu facis?".
10 Dic ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Super ducem onus istud, qui est in Ierusalem, et super omnem domum Israel, quae est in medio eius.
11 Dic: Ego portentum vestrum. Quomodo feci, sic fiet illis: in transmigrationem et in captivitatem ibunt.
12 Et dux, qui est in medio eorum, in umeris portabit, in caligine, et egredietur; parietem perfodient, ut transitus fiat per eum; faciem suam operiet, ut non videat oculo terram.
13 Et extendam rete meum super illum, et capietur in tendicula mea; et adducam eum in Babylonem in terram Chaldaeorum, et ipsam non videbit ibique morietur.
14 Et omnes, qui circa eum sunt, praesidium eius et agmina eius, dispergam in omnem ventum; et gladium evaginabo post eos.
15 Et scient quia ego Dominus, quando dispersero illos in gentibus et disseminavero eos in terris.
16 Et relinquam ex eis viros paucos a gladio et fame et pestilentia, ut narrent omnia scelera eorum in gentibus, ad quas ingredientur, et scient quia ego Dominus".
17 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
18 "Fili hominis, panem tuum in conturbatione comede; sed et aquam tuam in trepidatione et sollicitudine bibe.
19 Et dices ad populum terrae: Haec dicit Dominus Deus ad eos, qui habitant in Ierusalem in terra Israel: Panem suum in sollicitudine comedent et aquam suam in desolatione bibent, quia desolabitur terra a plenitudine sua propter violentiam omnium, qui habitant in ea;
20 et civitates, quae nunc habitantur, desolatae erunt, terraque deserta, et scietis quia ego Dominus".
21 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
22 "Fili hominis, quod est proverbium istud vobis in terra Israel dicentibus: "In longum differentur dies, et peribit omnis visio"?
23 Ideo dic ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Quiescere faciam proverbium istud, neque vulgo dicetur ultra in Israel; et loquere ad eos quod appropinquaverint dies et sermo omnis visionis.
24 Non enim erit ultra omnis visio vana neque divinatio ambigua in medio filiorum Israel,
25 quia ego Dominus loquar; quodcumque locutus fuero verbum, et fiet: non prolongabitur amplius, sed in diebus vestris, domus exasperans, loquar verbum et faciam illud", dicit Dominus Deus.
26 Et factus est sermo Domini ad me dicens:
27 "Fili hominis, ecce domus Israel dicentium: "Visio, quam hic videt, in dies multos et in tempora longa iste prophetat";
28 propterea dic ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus: Non differetur ultra omnis sermo meus; verbum, quod locutus fuero, complebitur", dicit Dominus Deus.
King James Version
1 The word of the LORD also came unto me, saying,
2 Son of man, thou dwellest in the midst of a rebellious house, which have eyes to see, and see not; they have ears to hear, and hear not: for they are a rebellious house.
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 be a rebellious house.
4 Then shalt thou bring forth thy stuff by day in their sight, as stuff for removing: and thou shalt go forth at even in their sight, as they that go forth into captivity.
5 Dig thou through the wall in their sight, and carry out thereby.
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 see not the ground: for I have set thee for a sign unto the house of Israel.
7 And I did so as I was commanded: I brought forth my stuff by day, as stuff for captivity, and in the even I digged through the wall with mine hand; I brought it forth in the twilight, and I bare it upon my shoulder in their sight.
8 ¶ And in the morning came the word of the LORD unto me, saying,
9 Son of man, hath not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said unto thee, What doest thou?
10 Say thou unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; This burden concerneth the prince in Jerusalem, and all the house of Israel that are among them.
11 Say, I am your sign: like as I have done, so shall it be done unto them: they shall remove and go into captivity.
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 see not the ground with his eyes.
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 there.
14 And I will scatter toward every wind all that are about him to help him, and all his bands; and I will draw out the sword after them.
15 And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I shall scatter them among the nations, and disperse them in the countries.
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.
17 ¶ Moreover the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
18 Son of man, eat thy bread with quaking, and drink thy water with trembling and with carefulness;
19 And say unto 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 carefulness, 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 therein.
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 LORD.
21 ¶ And the word of the LORD came unto me, saying,
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?
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 unto them, The days are at hand, and the effect of every vision.
24 For there shall be no more any vain vision nor flattering divination within the house of Israel.
25 For I am the LORD: I will speak, and the word that I shall speak shall come to pass; it shall be no more prolonged: for in your days, O rebellious house, will I say the word, and will perform it, saith the Lord GOD.
26 ¶ Again the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
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 far off.
28 Therefore say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; There shall none of my words be prolonged any more, but the word which I have spoken shall be done, saith the Lord GOD.
