1 At sinabi niya sa akin, Anak ng tao, tumayo ka ng iyong mga paa, at ako'y makikipagsalitaan sa iyo.

2 At ang Espiritu ay sumaakin nang siya'y magsalita sa akin, at itinayo ako sa aking mga paa; at aking narinig siya na nagsasalita sa akin.

3 At kaniyang sinabi sa akin, Anak ng tao, sinusugo kita sa mga anak ni Israel, sa mga bansa na mapanghimagsik, na nanganghimagsik laban sa akin: sila at ang kanilang mga magulang ay nagsisalangsang laban sa akin, hanggang sa kaarawan ngang ito.

4 At ang mga anak ay walang galang at mapagmatigas na loob; sinusugo kita sa kanila: at iyong sasabihin sa kanila, Ganito ang sabi ng Panginoong Dios.

5 At sila sa didinggin man nila, o sa itatakuwil man nila (sapagka't sila'y mapanghimagsik na sangbahayan), gayon man ay matatalastas nila na nagkaroon ng propeta sa gitna nila.

6 At ikaw, anak ng tao, huwag matakot sa kanila, o matakot man sa kanilang mga salita, bagaman maging mga dawag at mga tinik ang kasama mo, at bagaman ikaw ay tumatahan sa gitna ng mga alakdan: huwag kang matakot sa kanilang mga salita, o manglupaypay man sa kanilang mga tingin, bagaman sila'y mapanghimagsik na sangbahayan.

7 At iyong sasalitain ang aking mga salita sa kanila, sa didinggin, o sa itatakuwil man; sapagka't sila'y totoong mapanghimagsik.

8 Nguni't ikaw, anak ng tao, dinggin mo kung ano ang sinasabi ko sa iyo; huwag kang mapanghimagsik na gaya niyaong mapanghimagsik na sangbahayan; ibuka mo ang iyong bibig, at iyong kanin ang ibinibigay ko sa iyo.

9 At nang ako'y tumingin, narito, isang kamay ay nakaunat sa akin; at narito, isang balumbon ay nandoon;

10 At ikinadkad niya sa harap ko: at nasusulatan sa loob at sa labas; at may nakasulat doon na mga taghoy, at panangis, at mga daing.
