"Then lie upon your left side, and I will lay the punishment of the house of Israel upon you; for the number of the days that you lie upon it, you shall bear their punishment.
For I assign to you a number of days, three hundred and ninety days, equal to the number of the years of their punishment; so long shall you bear the punishment of the house of Israel.
And 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, a day for each year.
And you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, with your arm bared; and you shall prophesy against the city.
And, behold, I will put cords upon you, so that you cannot turn from one side to the other, till you have completed the days of your siege.
