And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the house of Jehovah that faces east; and there, at the entrance of the gate, were twenty-five men. And among them I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, rulers of the people.
- 2 -
And He said to me, Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and give evil counsel in this city,
- 3 -
Who say, It is not the time to build houses; the city is the pot and we are the flesh.
- 4 -
Therefore prophesy against them; prophesy, son of man.
- 5 -
Then the Spirit of Jehovah fell upon me and said to me, Say, Thus says Jehovah, You speak in this way, O house of Israel, for I know the things that come up in your spirit.
- 6 -
You have multiplied your slain in this city, and you have filled its streets with the slain.
- 7 -
Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, Your slain whom you have put in the midst of the city, they will be the flesh, and the city, the pot; but you I will bring forth from the midst of it.
- 8 -
You have feared the sword, so I will bring a sword upon you, declares the Lord Jehovah.
- 9 -
I will bring you forth from the midst of it and will give you into the hands of strangers; and I will execute judgments upon you.
- 10 -
You will fall by the sword; I will judge you in the borders of Israel, and you will know that I am Jehovah.
- 11 -
The city will not be a pot to you so that you will be in its midst as flesh; I will judge you in the borders of Israel.
- 12 -
And you will know that I am Jehovah; for you have not walked in My statutes, nor have you done My ordinances, but you have done according to the ordinances of the nations that surround you.
- 13 -
And when I prophesied, Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died; and I fell on my face and cried out with a loud voice, and I said, Ah, Lord Jehovah! Are You making a full end to the remnant of Israel?
- 22 -
Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, and the wheels were next to them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.
- 23 -
And the glory of Jehovah went up from the midst of the city and stood upon the mountain which is east of the city.
- 24 -
And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to Chaldea, to the captives, in a vision by the Spirit of God. And the vision that I had seen went up from me.
