Ezekiel 2:3-8

(From Ruth – edited in light of comment)

A. 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. For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee unto them; and thou shalt say unto them,

B. Thus saith the Lord GOD. And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear,

C. (for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a prophet among them.

D. And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them,

E. neither be afraid of their words,

F. though briers and thorns be with thee,
and thou dost dwell among scorpions:

E’. be not afraid of their words,

D’. nor be dismayed at their looks,

C’. though they be a rebellious house.

B’. And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.

A’. 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.

One thought on “Ezekiel 2:3-8”

  1. Parts B could be split up further, There are the phrases “they are/be a rebellious house” and “whether they will hear or whether they will forbear” in both, but they are the opposite way round, so they could be in their own sections.
