No delays (Ezek 12:26-12:28)

“The word of Yahweh

Came to me.

‘Son of man!

The house of Israel

Is saying.

‘The vision

That he sees

Is for many years

Ahead.

He prophesies

For distant times.’

Therefore say to them.

‘Thus says Yahweh God!

None of my words

Will be delayed

Any longer.

But the word

That I speak

Will be fulfilled.’

Says Yahweh God.”

Once again, the word of Yahweh came to Ezekiel, the son of man. The house of Israel had this saying that the visions that the prophets saw was for many years in the future. However, Yahweh said that none of his words would be delayed any longer. Whatever Yahweh said, it would be fulfilled right away, no doubt about that.
