Then lie on your left side, and place the punishment of the house of Israel upon it; you shall bear their punishment for the number of the days that you lie there.
For I assign to you a number of days, three hundred ninety days, equal to the number of the years of their punishment; and so you shall bear the punishment of the house of Israel.
When you have completed these, you shall lie down a second time, but on your right side, and bear the punishment of the house of Judah; forty days I assign you, one day for each year.
You shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and with your arm bared you shall prophesy against it.
See, I am putting cords on you so that you cannot turn from one side to the other until you have completed the days of your siege.
