HE GAVE ME THE SCROLL TO EAT, AND IT TASTED SWEET AS HONEY.
But thou, O son of man, hear all that I say to thee: and do not thou provoke me, as that house provoketh me: open thy mouth, and eat what I give thee.
And I looked, and behold, a hand was sent to me, wherein was a book rolled up: and he spread it before me, and it was written within and without: and there were written in it lamentations, and canticles, and woe.
And he said to me: Son of man, eat all that thou shalt find: eat this book, and go speak to the children of Israel.
And I opened my mouth, and he caused me to eat that book:
and he said to me: Son of man, thy belly shall eat, and thy bowels shall be filled with this book, which I give thee. And I did eat it: and it was sweet as honey in my mouth.
And he said to me: Son of man, go to the house of Israel, and thou shalt speak my words to them.
V. The word of the Lord.
