1 And he said unto me, a, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee.
2 And the a 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 a thee to the children of Israel, to a b 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 a. I do b 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 a house,) b shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.
6 ¶And thou, son of man, a not b of them, neither be afraid of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost c among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
7 And thou shalt a 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 a that I give thee.
9 ¶And when I looked, behold, an hand was sent unto me; and, lo, a a of a b was therein;
10 And he spread it before me; and it was written a: and there was written therein lamentations, and mourning, and woe.
