|Ezekiel 2: 2 - 5
||And when he spoke to me, the Spirit entered into me and set me upon my feet; and I heard him speaking to me.
||And he said to me, "Son of man, I send you to the people of Israel, to a nation of rebels, who have rebelled against me; they and their fathers have transgressed against me to this very day.
||The people also are impudent and stubborn: I send you to them; and you shall say to them, `Thus says the Lord GOD.'
||And whether they hear or refuse to hear (for they are a rebellious house) they will know that there has been a prophet among them.
