Baggage for exile

1 The LORD's word came to me:

References for Ezekiel 12:1

      2 Human one, you live in a household of rebels. They have eyes to see but they don't see, ears to hear but they don't hear, because they are a household of rebels.
      3 But you, human one, prepare a backpack for going into exile. In the daytime while they watch, go into exile; while they watch, go out from your place to another. Even though they are a household of rebels, perhaps they will understand.
      4 In the daytime while they watch, carry your backpack as if for exile. At twilight while they watch, go out like those who are led out to exile.
      5 While they watch, dig a hole through the wall and take your backpack out through it.
      6 While they watch, shoulder your backpack and carry it out in the dark. Cover your face so that you can't see the land, because I'm making you a sign for the house of Israel.
