Ezekiel 4

4:1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before
 thee, and pourtray upon it the city, [even] Jerusalem;
4:2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and
 cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set
 [battering] rams against it on every side.
4:3 Moreover take thou to thee an iron pan, and set it [for] a
 wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face
 against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege
 against it. This [shall be] a sign to the house of Israel.
4:4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of
 the house of Israel upon it: [according] to the number of the
 days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their
4:5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity,
 according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety
 days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
4:6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right
 side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah
 forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
4:7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face towards the siege of
 Jerusalem, and thy arm [shall be] uncovered, and thou shalt
 prophesy against it.
4:8 And behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not
 turn thee from one side to another, till thou hast ended the
 days of thy siege.
4:9 Take thou also to thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and
 lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel,
 and make thee bread thereof, [according] to the number of the
 days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and
 ninety days shalt thou eat of it.
4:10 And thy food which thou shalt eat [shall be] by weight,
 twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
4:11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of a
 hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
4:12 And thou shalt eat it [as] barley cakes, and thou shalt
 bake it with human excrement in their sight.
4:13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel
 eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will
 drive them.
4:14 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been
 polluted: for from my youth even till now have I not eaten of
 that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither hath
 abominable flesh come into my mouth.
4:15 Then he said to me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for
 man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread with them.
4:16 Moreover he said to me, Son of man, behold, I will break
 the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by
 weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure,
 and with astonishment.
4:17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonished one
 with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
