The Spirit speaks (Ezek 11:2-11:4)

“The Spirit said to me.

‘Son of man!

These are the men

Who devise iniquity!

They give wicked counsel

In this city!

They say.

‘The time is not near

To build houses.

This city is the pot.

We are the meat.’

Therefore prophesy

Against them!

Prophesy!

O son of man!’”

This Spirit of Yahweh spoke to Ezekiel. As in chapter 8, these 25 men were full of iniquity. They gave wicked advice in the city of Jerusalem. They even cited a proverb that it was not time to build houses. They were the meat to be cooked in the pot of Jerusalem. This Holy Spirit wanted Ezekiel, the son of man, to prophesize against these evil men.
