Bible: Eze 3:4-11

3:4 He said to me, “Son of man, go to the house of Israel and speak my words to them. 3:5 For you are not being sent to a people of unintelligible speech 1  and difficult language, 2  but 3  to the house of Israel 3:6 not to many peoples of unintelligible speech and difficult language, whose words you cannot understand 4 surely if 5  I had sent you to them, they would listen to you! 3:7 But the house of Israel is unwilling to listen to you, 6  because they are not willing to listen to me, 7  for the whole house of Israel is hard-headed and hard-hearted. 8 

3:8I have made your face adamant 9  to match their faces, and your forehead hard to match their foreheads. 3:9 I have made your forehead harder than flint – like diamond! 10  Do not fear them or be terrified of the looks they give you, 11  for they are a rebellious house.”

3:10 And he said to me, “Son of man, take all my words that I speak to you to heart and listen carefully. 3:11 Go to the exiles, to your fellow countrymen, 12  and speak to them – say to them, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says,’ whether they pay attention or not.”
