EZE 2:4 For they are impudent children and stiffhearted. I do send thee
unto them; and thou shalt say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD.
EZE 2:5 And they, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear,
(for they are a rebellious house,) yet shall know that there hath been a
prophet among them.
EZE 2:6 And thou, son of man, be not afraid of them, neither be afraid
of their words, though briers and thorns be with thee, and thou dost
dwell among scorpions: be not afraid of their words, nor be dismayed at
their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
EZE 2:7 And thou shalt speak my words unto them, whether they will
hear, or whether they will forbear: for they are most rebellious.
