1 Tada se duh podiže i ponese me do istočnih vrata Doma Jahvina, što su okrenuta k istoku. I gle: na ulazu vrata dvadeset i pet ljudi, među kojima vidjeh i Jaazaniju, sina Azurova, i Pelatju, sina Benajina, knezove narodne.

2 I reče mi: "Sine čovječji, evo ljudi koji smišljaju opačine i koji u ovom gradu daju zle savjete:

3 'Nije li čas da gradimo domove? Ovaj je grad kotao, a mi smo meso.'

4 Zato prorokuj protiv njih, prorokuj, sine čovječji!"

5 I duh Jahvin siđe nada me i kaza mi: "Reci: Ovako veli Jahve Gospod: 'Ne govoriš li tako, dome Izraelov? Ali ja poznajem misli vašega srca!

6 Množite ubojstva u ovome gradu i njegove ulice punite truplima.'

7 Zato ovako govori Jahve Gospod: 'Oni koje vi probodoste i razbacaste po gradu - oni su meso, a grad je kotao. Zato ću vas ja izvesti sada iz njega.

8 Od mača strahujete, i mač ću na vas dovesti - riječ je Jahve Gospoda!

9 Izvest ću vas iz grada i predati vas u ruke tuđincima, i sud ću svoj izvršiti nad vama:

10 od mača ćete pasti! Na međi Izraelovoj sudit ću vam, i tada ćete znati da sam ja Jahve!

11 A ovaj grad više vam neće biti kotao i vi nećete biti meso njegovo. Na međi Izraelovoj sudit ću vam,

12 i tada ćete znati da sam ja Jahve po čijim uredbama ne živjeste i čijih zakona ne izvršavaste, nego živjeste po zakonima okolnih naroda!'"

13 Dok ja tako prorokovah, umrije Pelatja, sin Benajin. I ja padoh ničice te zavapih iz svega glasa: "Jao, Jahve Gospode, zar ćeš doista uništiti sav Ostatak doma Izraelova?"

14 I dođe mi riječ Jahvina:

15 "Sine čovječji, tvojoj braći, i tvojim rođacima, i svem domu Izraelovu Jeruzalemci govore: 'Daleko ste od Jahve! Nama je ova zemlja dana u posjed!'

16 Zato im reci: Ovako govori Jahve Gospod: 'Ako ih i odagnah među daleke narode, ako ih i rasprših po zemljama, ja ću im sam uskoro biti Svetište u zemljama u kojima se nalaze.'

17 Stoga im reci: Ovako govori Jahve Gospod: 'Sabrat ću vas iz narodÄa, vratit ću vas iz zemalja u kojima ste bili raspršeni i dat ću vam opet zemlju Izraelovu!

18 I kad se u nju vrate, istrijebit će iz nje sve grozote i gadosti.

19 I ja ću im dati novo srce i nov ću duh udahnuti u njih: iščupat ću iz njih njihovo kameno srce i stavit ću u njih srce od mesa,

20 da hode po mojim naredbama i da čuvaju i vrše sve moje zakone. I bit će oni moj narod, a ja Bog njihov!

21 A onima kojima srce hodi za grozotama i gadostima oborit ću na glavu njihov put' - riječ je Jahve Gospoda."

22 Kerubini podigoše krila i točkovi se digoše za njima, a Slava Boga Izraelova lebdijaše nad njima.

23 Slava se Jahvina vinu iz grada i zaustavi se na gori, istočno od grada.

24 A mene duh podiže i ponese duhom Božjim k izgnanicima u zemlju kaldejsku. I iščeznu viđenje koje gledah.

25 I pripovjedih izgnanicima sve što mi Jahve bijaše objavio.
