See, fire has fallen from heaven and consumed the first two captains and all their men. But now have respect for my life!"
"I, even I, am he who comforts you. Who are you that you fear mere mortals, human beings who are but grass,
"Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them.
And you, son of man, do not be afraid of them or their words. Do not be afraid, though briers and thorns are all around you and you live among scorpions. Do not be afraid of what they say or be terrified by them, though they are a rebellious people.
