Then the LORD spoke his word to me. He said,
"Son of man, with one blow I'm going to take away from you the person you love the most. But you must not mourn, cry, or let tears run down your face.
Groan silently. Don't grieve for the person who dies. Tie on your turban, and put on your sandals. Don't cover your face or eat the food that mourners eat."
So I spoke to the people in the morning, and in the evening my wife died. The next morning I did as I was ordered.
