Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying ,
16Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep , neither shall thy tears run down .a17Forbearb to cry , make no mourning for the dead , bind the tire of thine head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men.18
So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wifedied ; and I did in the morning as I was commanded .
And the peoplesaid unto me, Wilt thou not tell us what these things are to us, that thou doest so?
Then I answered them, The word of the LORD came unto me, saying ,
21Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus saith the LordGOD; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soulpitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the sword.22
And ye shall do as I have done : ye shall not cover your lips, nor eat the bread of men.23
And your tires shall be upon your heads, and your shoes upon your feet: ye shall not mourn nor weep ; but ye shall pine away for your iniquities, and mournone toward another.24
Thus Ezekiel is unto you a sign: according to all that he hath done shall ye do : and when this cometh , ye shall know that I am the LordGOD.
