The word of the Lord came to me:
"Son of man, you are living among a rebellious house. They have eyes to see but do not see, and ears to hear but do not hear,a for they are a rebellious house.b3
"Son of man, pack your bags for exile and go into exile in their sight during the day. You will go into exile from your place to another place while they watch; perhaps they will understand, though they are a rebellious house.
During the day, bring out your bags like an exile's bags while they look on. Then in the evening go out in their sight like those going into exile.
As they watch, dig through the wall and take the [bags] out through it.
And while they look on, lift [the bags] to [your] shoulder and take [them] out in the dark; cover your face so that you cannot see the land. For I have made you a sign to the house of Israel."
