1 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, sta super pedes tuos, et loquar tecum".
2 Et ingressus est in me spiritus, postquam locutus est mihi et statuit me supra pedes meos, et audivi loquentem ad me
3 et dicentem: "Fili hominis, mitto ego te ad filios Israel, ad gentes apostatrices, quae recesserunt a me; ipsi et patres eorum praevaricati sunt in me usque ad diem hanc.
4 Et filii dura facie et obstinato corde sunt, ad quos ego mitto te; et dices ad eos: Haec dicit Dominus Deus.
5 Ipsi sive audiant, sive contemnant - quoniam domus exasperans est - sciant tamen quia propheta fuerit in medio eorum.
6 Tu ergo, fili hominis, ne timeas eos neque sermones eorum metuas, etsi cardui et spinae te circumdant, et cum scorpionibus habitas. Verba eorum ne timeas et vultus eorum ne formides, quia domus exasperans est.
7 Loqueris ergo verba mea ad eos, sive audiant, sive contemnant, quoniam exasperantes sunt.
8 Tu autem, fili hominis, audi, quaecumque loquor ad te, et noli esse exasperans, sicut domus exasperatrix est; aperi os tuum et comede, quaecumque ego do tibi".
9 Et vidi: et ecce manus missa ad me, in qua erat involutus liber; et expandit illum coram me, qui erat scriptus intus et foris, et scriptae erant in eo lamentationes et gemitus et vae.
King James Version
1 And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.
2 And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me.
3 And he said unto 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 unto this very day.
4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto 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 be with thee, and thou dost dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
8 But thou, son of man, hear what I say unto thee; Be not thou rebellious like that rebellious house: open thy mouth, and eat that I give thee.
9 And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a roll of a book was therein;
10 And he spread it before me; and it was written within and without: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
