First Reading for the 14th Sunday in Ordinary Time Year B

Ezekiel 2:2-5

Summary: God empowers Ezekiel to speak to rebellious Israel, ensuring that whether or not they listen, they will recognize the presence of a prophet among them.

Mission to Rebels

As the Lord spoke to me, the spirit entered into me and set me on my feet, and I heard the one who was speaking say to me:

Son of man, I am sending you to the Israelites, rebels who have rebelled against me; they and their ancestors have revolted against me to this very day.
Hard of face and obstinate of heart are they to whom I am sending you.
But you shall say to them: Thus says the Lord God!
And whether they heed or resist–for they are a rebellious house–they shall know that a prophet has been among them.
