"Now lie on your left side and place the sins of Israel on yourself. You are to bear their sins for the number of days you lie there on your side.
You will bear Israel's sins for 390 days -- one day for each year of their sin.
After that, turn over and lie on your right side for 40 days -- one day for each year of Judah's sin.
"Meanwhile, continue your demonstration of the siege of Jerusalem. Lie there with your arm bared and prophesy her destruction.
I will tie you up with ropes so you won't be able to turn from side to side until the days of your siege have been completed.
