Ezk 11:1And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the house of Jehovah that faces east; and there, at the entrance of the gate, were twenty-five men. And among them I saw Jaazaniah the son of Azzur and Pelatiah the son of Benaiah, rulers of the people.

Ezk 11:2And He said to me, Son of man, these are the men who devise iniquity and give evil counsel in this city,

Ezk 11:3Who say, It is not the time to build houses; the city is the pot and we are the flesh.

Ezk 11:4Therefore prophesy against them; prophesy, son of man.

Ezk 11:5Then the Spirit of Jehovah fell upon me and said to me, Say, Thus says Jehovah, You speak in this way, O house of Israel, for I know the things that come up in your spirit.

Ezk 11:6You have multiplied your slain in this city, and you have filled its streets with the slain.

Ezk 11:7Therefore thus says the Lord Jehovah, Your slain whom you have put in the midst of the city, they will be the flesh, and the city, the pot; but you I will bring forth from the midst of it.

Ezk 11:8You have feared the sword, so I will bring a sword upon you, declares the Lord Jehovah.

Ezk 11:9I will bring you forth from the midst of it and will give you into the hands of strangers; and I will execute judgments upon you.

Ezk 11:10You will fall by the sword; I will judge you in the borders of Israel, and you will know that I am Jehovah.

Ezk 11:11The city will not be a pot to you so that you will be in its midst as flesh; I will judge you in the borders of Israel.

Ezk 11:12And you will know that I am Jehovah; for you have not walked in My statutes, nor have you done My ordinances, but you have done according to the ordinances of the nations that surround you.

Ezk 11:13And when I prophesied, Pelatiah the son of Benaiah died; and I fell on my face and cried out with a loud voice, and I said, Ah, Lord Jehovah! Are You making a full end to the remnant of Israel?

Ezk 11:14Then the word of Jehovah came to me, saying,

Ezk 11:15Son of man, your brothers, your brothers, your kinsmen and the whole house of Israel, all of them, are the ones to whom the inhabitants of Jerusalem have said, Stay far away from Jehovah; to us was this land given as an inheritance.

Ezk 11:16Therefore say, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, Though I have sent them far away among the nations and though I have scattered them among the countries, I have been a sanctuary to them for a little while in the countries where they went.

Ezk 11:17Therefore say, Thus says the Lord Jehovah, I will gather you from the peoples and assemble you from the countries among which you have been scattered, and I will give you the land of Israel.

Ezk 11:18And they will come there and take away all its detestable things and all its abominations from it.

Ezk 11:19And I will give them one heart, and a new spirit I will put within them; and I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh,

Ezk 11:20That they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances and do them; and they will be My people, and I will be their God.

Ezk 11:21But as for those whose heart goes after their detestable things and their abominations, I will bring their ways upon their heads, declares the Lord Jehovah.

Ezk 11:22Then the cherubim lifted up their wings, and the wheels were next to them; and the glory of the God of Israel was over them above.

Ezk 11:23And the glory of Jehovah went up from the midst of the city and stood upon the mountain which is east of the city.

Ezk 11:24And the Spirit lifted me up and brought me to Chaldea, to the captives, in a vision by the Spirit of God. And the vision that I had seen went up from me.

Ezk 11:25Then I told the captives all the things that Jehovah had shown me.
