Ezekiel 3:1-6 BBE
(1) And he said to me, Son of man, take this roll for your food, and go and say my words to the children of Israel. (2) And, on my opening my mouth, he made me take the roll as food. (3) And he said to me, Son of man, let your stomach make a meal of it and let your inside be full of this roll which I am giving you. Then I took it, and it was sweet as honey in my mouth. (4) And he said to me, Son of man, go now to the children of Israel, and say my words to them. (5) For you are not sent to a people whose talk is strange and whose language is hard, but to the children of Israel; (6) Not to a number of peoples whose talk is strange and whose language is hard and whose words are not clear to you. Truly, if I sent you to them they would give ear to you.

(4) And He saith unto me, `Son of man, go, enter in unto the house of Israel, and thou hast spoken with My words unto them. (5) For, not unto a people deep of lip and heavy of tongue art thou sent--unto the house of Israel; (6) not unto many peoples, deep of lip and heavy of tongue, whose words thou dost not understand. If I had not sent thee unto them--they, they do hearken unto thee,
