Judgment of the Princes. 1Spirit lifted me up and brought me to the east gate of the temple. At the entrance of the gate I saw twenty‐five men, among whom were Jaazaniah, son of Azzur, and Pelatiah, son of Benaiah, princes of the people. 2The LORD said to me: Son of man, these are the men who are planning evil and giving wicked counsel in this city. 3“Shall we not,” they say, “be building houses soon? The city is the kettle, and we are the meat.”* 4Therefore prophesy against them, son of man, prophesy! 5Then the spirit of the LORD fell upon me, and he told me to say: Thus says the LORD: This is the way you talk, house of Israel, and what you are plotting I well know. 6You have slain many in this city and have filled its streets with your slain. 7Therefore thus says the Lord GOD: Your slain whom you have placed within it, they are the meat, and the city is the kettle; but you I will take out of it. 8You fear the sword, but the sword I will bring upon you, says the Lord GOD. 9I will bring you out of the city, and hand you over to foreigners, and inflict punishments upon you. 10By the sword you shall fall; at the boundaries of Israel I will judge you; thus you shall know that I am the LORD. 11The city shall not be a kettle for you, nor shall you be the meat within it. At the boundaries of Israel I will judge you, 12and you shall know that I am the LORD, by whose statutes you have not lived, and whose ordinances you have not kept; rather, you have acted according to the ordinances of the nations around you.

13While I was prophesying, Pelatiah, the son of Benaiah, died. I fell prone and cried out in a loud voice: “Alas, Lord GOD! will you utterly wipe out what remains of Israel?”

Restoration of the Exiles. 14Thus the word of the LORD came to me: 15 * Son of man, it is about your kinsmen, your fellow exiles, and the whole house of Israel that the inhabitants of Jerusalem say, “They are far away from the LORD; to us the land of Israel has been given as our possession.” 16Therefore say: Thus says the Lord GOD: Though I have removed them far among the nations and scattered them over foreign countries—and was for a while their only sanctuary in the countries to which they had gone— 17I will gather you from the nations and assemble you from the countries over which you have been scattered, and I will restore to you the land of Israel. 18They shall return to it and remove from it all its detestable abominations. 19 u Ez 36, 26; Jer 31, 33 . I will give them a new heart and put a new spirit within them; I will remove the stony heart from their bodies, and replace it with a natural heart, 20so that they will live according to my statutes, and observe and carry out my ordinances; thus they shall be my people and I will be their God. 21But as for those whose hearts are devoted to their detestable abominations, I will bring down their conduct upon their heads, says the Lord
