1902 Rotherham's Emphasized Bible (EBR)
2:1 ¶ And he said unto me,Son of man, Stand upon thy feet, that I may speak with thee.
2:2 Then the Spirit entered into me, as soon as he spake unto me, and it caused me to stand upon my feet,and I heard one speaking unto me.
2:3 And he said unto meSon of man, I, am sending thee, unto the sons of Israel, unto rebellious, nations, which have rebelled against me,they, and their fathers, have transgressed against me, until this very day;
2:5 And, they, whether they will hear or whether they will forbear, for, a perverse house, they are, shall then know that, a prophet, hath been in their midst.
2:6 ¶ But, thou, son of man, Be not afraid of them, Nor, of their words, be afraid, Though, thorns and thistles, are about thee, And, amongst prickly plants, thou dost dwell, Of their words, be not afraid, nor, At their faces, be thou dismayed, For, a perverse house, they are!
2:7 Thou shalt therefore speak my words unto them, whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear, For, perverse, they are!
2:8 Thou, therefore, son of man, hear what I, am speaking unto thee, become not perverse, like the perverse house,open thy mouth, and eat that which I, am giving unto thee.
2:9 So I looked, and lo! a hand, put forth unto me,and lo! therein, a scroll;
2:10 and he spread it out before me, and, it, was written, on the front and the back,and there were written thereon, lamentation and sighing, and wailing.
