Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:1 - The word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:2 - "Son of man, you dwell in the midst of a rebellious house, who have eyes to see, but see not, who have ears to hear, but hear not;

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:3 - for they are a rebellious house. Therefore, son of man, prepare for yourself an exile's baggage, and go into exile by day in their sight; you shall go like an exile from your place to another place in their sight. Perhaps they will understand, though they are a rebellious house.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:4 - You shall bring out your baggage by day in their sight, as baggage for exile; and you shall go forth yourself at evening in their sight, as men do who must go into exile.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:5 - Dig through the wall in their sight, and go out through it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:6 - In their sight you shall lift the baggage upon your shoulder, and carry it out in the dark; you shall cover your face, that you may not see the land; for I have made you a sign for the house of Israel."

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:7 - And I did as I was commanded. I brought out my baggage by day, as baggage for exile, and in the evening I dug through the wall with my own hands; I went forth in the dark, carrying my outfit upon my shoulder in their sight.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:8 - In the morning the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:9 - "Son of man, has not the house of Israel, the rebellious house, said to you, 'What are you doing?'

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:10 - Say to them, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: This oracle concerns the prince in Jerusalem and all the house of Israel who are in it.'

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:11 - Say, 'I am a sign for you: as I have done, so shall it be done to them; they shall go into exile, into captivity.'

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:12 - And the prince who is among them shall lift his baggage upon his shoulder in the dark, and shall go forth; he shall dig through the wall and go out through it; he shall cover his face, that he may not see the land with his eyes.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:13 - And I will spread my net over him, and he shall be taken in my snare; and I will bring him to Babylon in the land of the Chalde'ans, yet he shall not see it; and he shall die there.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:14 - And I will scatter toward every wind all who are round about him, his helpers and all his troops; and I will unsheathe the sword after them.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:15 - And they shall know that I am the LORD, when I disperse them among the nations and scatter them through the countries.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:16 - But I will let a few of them escape from the sword, from famine and pestilence, that they may confess all their abominations among the nations where they go, and may know that I am the LORD."

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:17 - Moreover the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:18 - "Son of man, eat your bread with quaking, and drink water with trembling and with fearfulness;

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:19 - and say of the people of the land, Thus says the Lord GOD concerning the inhabitants of Jerusalem in the land of Israel: They shall eat their bread with fearfulness, and drink water in dismay, because their land will be stripped of all it contains, on account of the violence of all those who dwell in it.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:20 - And the inhabited cities shall be laid waste, and the land shall become a desolation; and you shall know that I am the LORD."

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:21 - And the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:22 - "Son of man, what is this proverb that you have about the land of Israel, saying, 'The days grow long, and every vision comes to nought'?

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:23 - Tell them therefore, 'Thus says the Lord GOD: I will put an end to this proverb, and they shall no more use it as a proverb in Israel.' But say to them, The days are at hand, and the fulfilment of every vision.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:24 - For there shall be no more any false vision or flattering divination within the house of Israel.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:25 - But I the LORD will speak the word which I will speak, and it will be performed. It will no longer be delayed, but in your days, O rebellious house, I will speak the word and perform it, says the Lord GOD."

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:26 - Again the word of the LORD came to me:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:27 - "Son of man, behold, they of the house of Israel say, 'The vision that he sees is for many days hence, and he prophesies of times far off.'

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 12:28 - Therefore say to them, Thus says the Lord GOD: None of my words will be delayed any longer, but the word which I speak will be performed, says the Lord GOD."
