"Next, you are to lie on your left side, and have it bear the guilt of the house of Isra'el - for as many days as you lie on your side, you will bear their guilt.
For I am assigning you one day for each year of their guilt; thus you are to bear the guilt of the house of Isra'el for 390 days.
Then, when you have finished that, you are to lie on your right side and bear the guilt of the house of Y'hudah for forty days, each day corresponding to a year; this is what I am assigning you.
You are to fix your gaze on the siege of Yerushalayim, and, with your arm bared, prophesy against it.
I am tying you down with ropes, and you are not to turn from one side to the other until you have completed the days of your siege.
