1 And he said to me, Son of Man, eat this volume, and go and speak to the children of Israel. 2 So he opened my mouth, and caused me to eat the volume. And he said to me, Son of man, 3 thy mouth shall eat, and thy belly shall be filled with this volume that is given to thee. So I ate it; and it was in my mouth as sweet as honey. 4 And he said to me, Son of man, go thy way, and go in to the house of Israel, and speak my words to them. 5 For thou art not sent to a people of hard speech, [but] to the house of Israel; 6 neither to many nations of other speech and other tongues, nor of harsh language, whose words thou wouldest not understand: although if I [had] sent thee to such, they would have hearkened to thee. 7 But the house of Israel will not be willing to hearken to thee; for they will not hearken to me: for all the house of Israel are stubborn and hard-hearted. 8 And, behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and I will strengthen thy power against their power. 9 And it shall be continually stronger than a rock: be not afraid of them, neither be dismayed at their faces, because it is a provoking house. 10 And he said to me, Son of man, receive into thine heart all the words that I have spoken to thee, and hear [them] with thine ears. 11 And go thy way, go in to the captivity, to the children of thy people, and thou shalt speak to them, and say to them, Thus saith the Lord; whether they will hear, [or] whether they will forbear. 12 Then the Spirit took me up, and I heard behind me the voice [as] of a great earthquake, [saying], Blessed [be] the glory of the Lord from his place. 13 And I perceived the sound of the wings of the living creatures clapping one to the other, and the sound of the wheels was near them, and the sound of the earthquake. 14 And the Spirit lifted me, and took me up, and I went in the impulse of my spirit; and the hand of the Lord was mighty upon me. 15 Then I passed through the air and came into the captivity, and went round [to] them that dwelt by the river of Chobar who were there; and I sat there seven days, conversant in the midst of them. 16 And after the seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying, Son of man, 17 I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel; and thou shalt hear a word of my mouth, and shalt threaten them from me. 18 When I say to the wicked, Thou shalt surely die; and thou hast not warned him, to give warning to the wicked, to turn from his ways, that he should live; that wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood will I require at thy hand. 19 But if thou warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, and from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, and thou shalt deliver thy soul. 20 And when the righteous turns away from his righteousness, and commits a trespass, and I shall bring punishment before him, he shall die, because thou didst not warn him: he shall even die in his sins, because his righteousness shall not be remembered; but his blood will I require at thine hand. 21 But if thou warn the righteous not to sin, and he sin not, the righteous shall surely live, because thou hast warned him; and thou shalt deliver thine own soul. 22 And the hand of the Lord came upon me; and he said to me, Arise, and go forth into the plain, and there shalt thou be spoken to. 23 And I arose, and went forth to the plain: and, behold, the glory of the Lord stood there, according to the vision, and according to the glory of the Lord, which I saw by the river of Chobar: and I fell on my face. 24 Then the Spirit came upon me, and set me on my feet, and spoke to me, and said to me, Go in, and shut thyself up in the midst of thine house. 25 And thou, son of man, behold, bonds are prepared for thee, and they shall bind thee with them, and thou shalt not come forth of the midst of them. 26 Also I will bind thy tongue, and thou shalt be dumb, and shalt not be to them a reprover: because it is a provoking house. 27 But when I speak to thee, I will open thy mouth, and thou shalt say to them, Thus saith the Lord, He that hears, let him hear; and he that is disobedient, let him be disobedient: because it is a provoking house. ΚΑΙ εἶπε πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, κατάφαγε τὴν κεφαλίδα ταύτην καὶ πορεύθητι καὶ λάλησον τοῖς υἱοῖς ᾿Ισραήλ. 2 καὶ διήνοιξε τὸ στόμα μου, καὶ ἐψώμισέ με τὴν κεφαλίδα 3 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, τὸ στόμα σου φάγεται, καὶ ἡ κοιλία σου πλησθήσεται τῆς κεφαλίδος ταύτης τῆς δεδομένης εἰς σέ. καὶ ἔφαγον αὐτήν, καὶ ἐγένετο ἐν τῷ στόματί μου ὡς μέλι γλυκάζον. 4 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, βάδιζε καὶ εἴσελθε πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ καὶ λάλησον τοὺς λόγους μου πρὸς αὐτούς· 5 διότι οὐ πρὸς λαὸν βαθύχειλον καὶ βαρύγλωσσον σὺ ἐξαποστέλλῃ, πρὸς τὸν οἶκον τοῦ ᾿Ισραήλ, 6 οὐδὲ πρὸς λαοὺς πολλοὺς ἀλλοφώνους ἢ ἀλλογλώσσους οὐδὲ στιβαροὺς τῇ γλώσσῃ ὄντας, ὧν οὐκ ἀκούσῃ τοὺς λόγους αὐτῶν· καὶ εἰ πρὸς τοιούτους ἐξαπέστειλά σε, οὗτοι ἂν εἰσήκουσάν σου. 7 ὁ δὲ οἶκος τοῦ ᾿Ισραὴλ οὐ μὴ θελήσουσιν εἰσακοῦσαί σου, διότι οὐ βούλονται εἰσακούειν μου· ὅτι πᾶς ὁ οἶκος ᾿Ισραὴλ φιλόνεικοί εἰσι καὶ σκληροκάρδιοι. 8 καὶ ἰδοὺ δέδωκα τὸ πρόσωπόν σου δυνατὸν κατέναντι τῶν προσώπων αὐτῶν καὶ τὸ νῖκός σου κατισχύσω κατέναντι τοῦ νίκους αὐτῶν, 9 καὶ ἔσται διαπαντὸς κραταιότερον πέτρας. μὴ φοβηθῇς ἀπ᾿ αὐτῶν μηδὲ πτοηθῇς ἀπὸ προσώπου αὐτῶν, διότι οἶκος παραπικραίνων ἐστί. 10 καὶ εἶπε πρός με· υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, πάντας τοὺς λόγους, οὓς λελάληκα μετὰ σοῦ, λαβὲ εἰς τὴν καρδίαν σου καὶ τοῖς ὠσί σου ἄκουε, 11 καὶ βάδιζε, εἴσελθε εἰς τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν πρὸς τοὺς υἱοὺς τοῦ λαοῦ σου καὶ λαλήσεις πρὸς αὐτοὺς καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ἐὰν ἄρα ἀκούσωσιν, ἐὰν ἄρα ἐνδῶσι. 12 καὶ ἀνέλαβέ με πνεῦμα, καὶ ἤκουσα κατόπισθέν μου φωνὴν σεισμοῦ μεγάλου· εὐλογημένη ἡ δόξα Κυρίου ἐκ τοῦ τόπου αὐτοῦ. 13 καὶ εἶδον φωνὴν τῶν πτερύγων τῶν ζῴων πτερυσσομένων ἑτέρα πρὸς τὴν ἑτέραν, καὶ φωνὴ τῶν τροχῶν ἐχομένη αὐτῶν καὶ φωνὴ τοῦ σεισμοῦ. 14 καὶ τὸ πνεῦμα ἐξῇρέ με καὶ ἀνέλαβέ με, καὶ ἐπορεύθην ἐν ὁρμῇ τοῦ πνεύματός μου, καὶ χεὶρ Κυρίου ἐγένετο ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ κραταιά. 15 καὶ εἰσῆλθον εἰς τὴν αἰχμαλωσίαν μετέωρος καὶ περιῆλθον τοὺς κατοικοῦντας ἐπὶ τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ Χοβὰρ τοὺς ὄντας ἐκεῖ καὶ ἐκάθισα ἐκεῖ ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας ἀναστρεφόμενος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν. 16 Καὶ ἐγένετο μετὰ τὰς ἑπτὰ ἡμέρας λόγος Κυρίου πρός με λέγων· 17 υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, σκοπὸν δέδωκά σε τῷ οἴκῳ ᾿Ισραήλ, καὶ ἀκούσῃ ἐκ στόματός μου λόγον καὶ διαπειλήσῃ αὐτοῖς παρ᾿ ἐμοῦ. 18 ἐν τῷ λέγειν με τῷ ἀνόμῳ· θανάτῳ θανατωθήσῃ, καὶ οὐ διεστείλω αὐτῷ οὐδὲ ἐλάλησας τοῦ διαστείλασθαι τῷ ἀνόμῳ ἀποστρέψαι ἀπὸ τῶν ὁδῶν αὐτοῦ τοῦ ζῆσαι αὐτόν, ὁ ἄνομος ἐκεῖνος τῇ ἀδικίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται, καὶ τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου ἐκζητήσω. 19 καὶ σὺ ἐὰν διαστείλῃ τῷ ἀνόμῳ, καὶ μὴ ἀποστρέψῃ ἀπὸ τῆς ἀνομίας αὐτοῦ καὶ ἀπὸ τῆς ὁδοῦ αὐτοῦ, ὁ ἄνομος ἐκεῖνος ἐν τῇ ἀδικίᾳ αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται, καὶ σὺ τὴν ψυχήν σου ῥύσῃ. 20 καὶ ἐν τῷ ἀποστρέφειν δίκαιον ἀπὸ τῶν δικαιοσυνῶν αὐτοῦ καὶ ποιήσει παράπτωμα καὶ δώσω τὴν βάσανον εἰς πρόσωπον αὐτοῦ, αὐτὸς ἀποθανεῖται, ὅτι οὐ διεστείλω αὐτῷ, καὶ ἐν ταῖς ἁμαρτίαις αὐτοῦ ἀποθανεῖται, διότι οὐ μὴ μνησθῶσιν αἱ δικαιοσύναι αὐτοῦ, ἃς ἐποίησε, καὶ τὸ αἷμα αὐτοῦ ἐκ τῆς χειρός σου ἐκζητήσω. 21 σὺ δὲ ἐὰν διαστείλῃ τῷ δικαίῳ τοῦ μὴ ἁμαρτεῖν, καὶ αὐτὸς μὴ ἁμάρτῃ, ὁ δίκαιος ζωῇ ζήσεται, ὅτι διεστείλω αὐτῷ, καὶ σὺ τὴν σεαυτοῦ ψυχὴν ρύσῃ. 22 Καὶ ἐγένετο ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ χεὶρ Κυρίου, καὶ εἶπε πρός με· ἀνάστηθι, καὶ ἔξελθε εἰς τὸ πεδίον, καὶ ἐκεῖ λαληθήσεται πρός σε. 23 καὶ ἀνέστην καὶ ἐξῆλθον πρὸς τὸ πεδίον, καὶ ἰδοὺ ἐκεῖ δόξα Κυρίου εἱστήκει καθὼς ἡ ὅρασις καὶ καθὼς ἡ δόξα Κυρίου, ἣν εἶδον ἐπὶ τοῦ ποταμοῦ τοῦ Χοβάρ, καὶ πίπτω ἐπὶ πρόσωπόν μου. 24 καὶ ἦλθεν ἐπ᾿ ἐμὲ πνεῦμα καὶ ἔστησέ με ἐπὶ τοὺς πόδας μου, καὶ ἐλάλησε πρός με καὶ εἶπέ μοι· εἴσελθε καὶ ἐγκλείσθητι ἐν μέσῳ τοῦ οἴκου σου. 25 καὶ σύ, υἱὲ ἀνθρώπου, ἰδοὺ δέδονται ἐπὶ σὲ δεσμοί, καὶ δήσουσί σε ἐν αὐτοῖς, καὶ οὐ μὴ ἐξέλθῃς ἐκ μέσου αὐτῶν. 26 καὶ τὴν γλῶσσάν σου συνδήσω, καὶ ἀποκωφωθήσῃ, καὶ οὐκ ἔσῃ αὐτοῖς εἰς ἄνδρα ἐλέγχοντα, διότι οἶκος παραπικραίνων ἐστί. 27 καὶ ἐν τῷ λαλεῖν με πρὸς σὲ ἀνοίξω τὸ στόμα σου, καὶ ἐρεῖς πρὸς αὐτούς· τάδε λέγει Κύριος· ὁ ἀκούων ἀκουέτω, καὶ ὁ ἀπειθῶν ἀπειθήτω, διότι οἶκος παραπικραίνων ἐστί.
