Context Readings

The Call Of Ezekiel To Speak God's Words

5 For I send thee not to a people that hath a strange, unknown, or hard speech, but unto the house of Israel; 6 Not to many nations which have divers speeches and hard languages, whose words thou understandest not. Nevertheless, if I sent thee to those people, they would follow thee: 7 But the house of Israel will not follow thee, for they will not follow me. Yea, all the house of Israel have stiff foreheads, and hard hearts.
