“Son of man, speak to the sons of your people and tell them: When I bring the sword on a land, and the people of the land take a man from among them and set him for their watchman, Bible other translations

“the sons of your people.” This is literal. Although the message of Ezekiel applied to the women and children too, culturally, Ezekiel would only speak to the men, the heads of the families.
