Ezekiel 11
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1And [the] Spirit lifts me up, and it brings me to the east gate of the house of YHWH, that is facing the east, and behold, at the opening of the gate [are] twenty-five men, and I see in their midst Jaazaniah son of Azzur, and Pelatiah son of Benaiah, heads of the people. 2And He says to me, “Son of man, these [are] the men who are devising iniquity, and who are giving evil counsel in this city; 3who are saying, It [is] not near—to build houses, it [is] the pot, and we [are] the flesh. 4Therefore prophesy concerning them, prophesy, son of man.”

5And [the] Spirit of YHWH falls on me, and He says to me, “Say, Thus said YHWH: You have said correctly, O house of Israel, || And I have known the steps of your spirit. 6You multiplied your wounded in this city, || And filled its out-places with the wounded. 7Therefore, thus said Lord YHWH: Your wounded whom you placed in its midst, || They [are] the flesh, and it [is] the pot, || And He has brought you out from its midst. 8You have feared a sword, || And I bring in a sword against you, || A declaration of Lord YHWH. 9And I have brought you out of its midst, || And given you into the hand of strangers, || And I have done judgments among you. 10You fall by the sword, || I judge you on the border of Israel, || And you have known that I [am] YHWH. 11It is not for a pot for you, || Nor are you for flesh in its midst, || I judge you at the border of Israel. 12And you have known that I [am] YHWH, || For you have not walked in My statutes, || And you have not done My judgments, || And according to the judgments of the nations || Who are around you, you have done!”

13And it comes to pass, at my prophesying, that Pelatiah son of Benaiah is dying, and I fall on my face, and cry—a loud voice—and say, “Aah! Lord YHWH, You are making an end of the remnant of Israel.”

14And there is a word of YHWH to me, saying, 15“Son of man, your brothers, your brothers, men of your family, and all the house of Israel—all of it—[are] they to whom inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Keep far off from YHWH; 16it [is] ours, the land has been given for an inheritance; therefore say, Thus said Lord YHWH: Because I put them far off among nations, || And because I scattered them through lands, I am also for a little sanctuary to them, || In lands to where they have gone in. 17Therefore say, Thus said Lord YHWH: And I have assembled you from the peoples, || And I have gathered you from the lands, || Into which you have been scattered, || And I have given the ground of Israel to you. 18And they have gone in there, || And turned aside all its detestable things, || And all its abominations—out of it. 19And I have given one heart to them, || And I give a new spirit in your midst, || And I have turned the heart of stone out of their flesh, || And I have given a heart of flesh to them. 20So that they walk in My statutes, || And keep My judgments, and have done them, || And they have been to Me for a people, || And I am to them for God. 21As for those whose heart is going to the heart || Of their detestable things and their abominations, || I have put their way on their head, || A declaration of Lord YHWH.”

22And the cherubim lift up their wings, and the wheels [are] alongside them, and the glory of the God of Israel [is] over them above. 23And the glory of YHWH goes up from off the midst of the city, and stands on the mountain, that [is] on the east of the city. 24And [the] Spirit has lifted me up, and brings me to Chaldea, to the expulsion, in a vision, by [the] Spirit of God, and the vision that I have seen goes up from off me; 25and I speak to the expulsion all the matters of YHWH that He has showed me.
