The LORD's word came to me:
Human one, I am about to take the delight of your eyes away from you in a single stroke. Don't mourn or weep. Don't even let your tears well up.
Sigh inwardly; be deathly still. Don't perform mourning rites, but bind on your turban and put your shoes on your feet. And don't cover your upper lip or eat in human company.
I spoke with the people in the morning, and by evening my wife was dead. The next morning I did as I was commanded.
