1 The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
2 'Son of man, you are living among a tribe of rebels who have eyes and never see, they have ears and never hear, because they are a tribe of rebels.
Ezek 2:5-8 Isa 1:23 Ezek 2:3 Isa 6:9-10 Jer 5:21 John 9:39-41 John 12:40
3 So, son of man, pack an exile's bundle and set off for exile by daylight while they watch. You will leave your home and go somewhere else while they watch. Then perhaps they will see that they are a tribe of rebels.
Jer 36:3 2Tim 2:25 Jer 26:3 Jer 36:7 Luke 20:13 Deut 5:29 Deut 32:29
4 You will pack your baggage like an exile's bundle, by daylight, while they watch, and leave like an exile in the evening, while they watch.
Jer 39:4 2Kgs 25:4 Ezek 12:12 Jer 52:7
5 While they watch, make a hole in the wall, and go out through it.
2Kgs 25:4 Jer 39:2-4
6 While they watch, you will shoulder your pack and go out into the dark; you will cover your face so that you cannot see the ground, since I have made you an omen for the House of Israel.'
Ezek 4:3 Ezek 24:24 Isa 8:18 1Sam 28:8 2Sam 15:30 Ezek 12:11-12 Isa 20:2-4
7 I did as I had been told. I packed my baggage like an exile's bundle, by daylight; and in the evening I made a hole through the wall with my hands; then I went out into the dark and shouldered my pack while they watched.
Ezek 24:18 Ezek 37:7 Ezek 37:10 Acts 26:19 Ezek 2:8 Ezek 12:3 Jer 32:8-12
8 Next morning the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
9 'Son of man, did not the House of Israel, did not that tribe of rebels, ask you, "What are you doing?"
Ezek 17:12 Ezek 24:19 Ezek 20:49 Ezek 2:5-8 Ezek 12:1-3
10 Say, "The Lord Yahweh says this: This prophecy concerns Jerusalem and the whole House of Israel who live there."
2Kgs 9:25 Isa 13:1 Ezek 7:27 Ezek 17:13-21 Ezek 21:25-27 Isa 14:28 Jer 21:7
11 Say, "I am an omen for you; as I have done, so will be done to them; they will be deported into exile.
Jer 15:2 Jer 52:15 Jer 52:28-30 Ezek 12:6
12 Their prince will shoulder his pack in the dark and go out through the wall; a hole will be made to let him out; he will cover his face, so that he cannot see the country.
2Kgs 25:4 Jer 39:4 Ezek 12:6 Jer 42:7 Jer 52:7
13 I shall throw my net over him and catch him in my mesh; I shall take him to Babylon, to the land of the Chaldaeans, though he will not see it; and there he will die.
Ezek 17:20 Hos 7:12 Isa 24:17-18 Jer 39:7 Ezek 17:16 Ezek 32:3 2Kgs 25:5-7
14 And all those in attendance on him, his army and all his troops, I shall scatter to all the winds and unsheathe the sword behind them.
Ezek 5:2 2Kgs 25:4-5 Ezek 17:21 Ezek 5:10-12 Ezek 14:17 Ezek 14:21 Jer 42:16
15 Then they will know that I am Yahweh, when I scatter them throughout the nations and disperse them in foreign countries.
Ezek 6:7 Ezek 6:14 Ezek 12:16 Ezek 12:20 Ezek 5:13 Ezek 7:4 Ezek 11:10
16 But I shall let a few of them escape the sword, famine and plague, to describe all their loathsome practices to the peoples among whom they will go, so that these too may know that I am Yahweh." '
Ezek 6:8-10 Ezek 14:22-23 Jer 22:8-9 Amos 9:8-9 Isa 1:9 Jer 4:27 1Kgs 9:6-9
17 The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
18 'Son of man, you are to tremble as you eat your food and shudder apprehensively as you drink your water,
Deut 28:48 Deut 28:65 Ezek 4:16-17 Ezek 23:33 Job 3:24 Lam 5:9 Lev 26:26
19 and you are to say to the people of the country, "The Lord Yahweh says this to the inhabitants of Jerusalem. They will shudder apprehensively as they eat their food, and drink their water in fear, so that the country and its population may be freed from the violence of its inhabitants.
Zech 7:14 Ezek 6:6-7 Ezek 6:14 Mic 7:13 Ezek 7:23 Jer 10:22 1Cor 10:26
20 When the populous cities have been destroyed and the country has been reduced to desert, then you will know that I am Yahweh." '
Isa 7:23-24 Jer 4:7 Isa 3:26 Jer 25:9 Dan 9:17 Ezek 15:6 Ezek 15:8
21 The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
22 'Son of man, what do you understand by the saying pronounced over the land of Israel, "Days go by and visions fade"?
Ezek 11:3 Amos 6:3 Ezek 12:27 Ezek 18:2-3 Jer 5:12-13 2Pet 3:3-4 Ezek 16:44
23 'Very well, tell them, "The Lord Yahweh says this: I shall put an end to this saying; it will never be used in Israel again." Instead, tell them: "The days are coming when every vision will come true,
Joel 2:1 Zeph 1:14 Ezek 7:2 Ezek 7:5-7 Ezek 7:10-12 Ezek 12:25 Ezek 18:3
24 for there will be no more futile visions or deceptive prophecy in the House of Israel,
Ezek 13:23 Jer 14:13-16 Zech 13:2-4 1Kgs 22:11-13 1Kgs 22:17 1Thess 2:5 2Pet 2:2-3
25 since I, Yahweh, shall speak. And what I shall say will come true without delay; for what I shall say, I shall perform in your own lifetime, you tribe of rebels -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '

Dan 10:14 Ezek 12:22 2Pet 3:4 Isa 28:14-15
28 Very well, tell them, "The Lord Yahweh says this: There will be no further delay in the fulfilling of any of my words. What I have said shall be done now -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '
