1 Then, 😇, [YAH] says to me, “‘Son of Adam,’ stand on your feet. Then I'll speak to you.”
2 As [YAH] speaks to me, [YAH's] spirit enters me, 😇! It sets me on my feet. I hear [YAH] speak to me.
3*[YAH] says to me, “‘Son of Adam,’ I send you to [condemn] the brats of Israel. [Their] mutinous nation [keeps on] rebelling against me. They and their fore-fathers have [consistently] betrayed me, right to this very day.
4[The Jews] are impudent, stiff hearted spoiled-kids. I'm sending you to [warn] them. Speak my words [in the name-authority] of [Me,]AdonaiYHVH.
5The [Israelites are] a rebellious gaggle. [Some] may listen. [Most will] ignore you. But they'll [all eventually] realize that [you're] a prophet in their midst.
6So you, son of Adam, never be afraid of the [fake Judeo-Christians]. Never quake at their words, even when [their] ‘briers’ and ‘thorns’ surround you. You live among ‘scorpions.’ Never fear their talk, 😇. Don't get discouraged by their [evil ugly] looks, no matter how rebellious [they grow].
7*You'll speak my words to the [phony Judeo-Christians], whether they listen, or whether they [ignore you, which they will, 😇,] because they're extremely treacherous.
8*But you, son of Adam, hear what I say to you: Don't be rebellious like that mutinous gaggle [of counterfeit ‘believers’]. Open your mouth. Eat what I give you.”
9*I look, 😇. Suddenly I see [YAH] send a [mysterious spirit-]hand. [It floats in a vapor-cloud] toward me. I see that the hand holds a scroll.
10[The paranormal hand] spreads [out the scroll] before me. It's written inside and out, 😇: a doom-tale of death-dirges, mourning and wailing.
