He said to me: "Son of man, eat what you find [here]. Eat this scroll, then go and speak to the house of Israel."
So I opened my mouth, and He fed me the scroll.
"Son of man," he said to me, "eat and fill your stomach with this scroll I am giving you." So I ate [it], and it was as sweet as honey in my mouth.
So I went to the angel and asked him to give me the little scroll. He said to me, "Take and eat it; it will be bitter in your stomach, but it will be as sweet as honey in your mouth."
I have not departed from the commands of His lips; I have treasured the words of His mouth more than my daily food.
They are more desirable than gold-- than an abundance of pure gold; and sweeter than honey-- than honey dripping from the comb.
Instruction from Your lips is better for me than thousands of gold and silver pieces.
How I love Your teaching! It is my meditation all day long.
I have kept my feet from every evil path to follow Your word.
I have not turned from Your judgments, for You Yourself have instructed me.
How sweet Your word is to my taste-- [sweeter] than honey to my mouth.
I am called by thy name
Why are You like a helpless man, like a warrior unable to save? Yet You are among us, LORD, and we are called by Your name. Don't leave us!
