"Then lie down on your left side and place the iniquitya of the house of Israel on it. You will bear their iniquity for the number of days you lie on your side.
For I have assigned you the years of their iniquity according to the number of days [you lie down], 390 days; so you will bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
When you have completed these days, lie down again, but on your right side, and bear the iniquity of the house of Judah. I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.
You must turn your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm bared, and prophesy against it.
Be aware that I will put cords on you so you cannot turn from side to side until you have finished the days of your siege.
