You also, son of man, take a tile, and lay it before you, and portray on it a city, even Yerushalayim:
and lay siege against it, and build forts against it, and cast up a mound against it; set camps also against it, and plant battering rams against it round about.
Take for yourself an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between you and the city: and set your face toward it, and it shall be besieged, and you shall lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Yisra'el.
Moreover lie you on your left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Yisra'el on it; [according to] the number of the days that you shall lie on it, you shall bear their iniquity.
For I have appointed the years of their iniquity to be to you a number of days, even three hundred ninety days: so shall you bear the iniquity of the house of Yisra'el.
Again, when you have accomplished these, you shall lie on your right side, and shall bear the iniquity of the house of Yehudah: forty days, each day for a year, have I appointed it to you.
You shall set your face toward the siege of Yerushalayim, with your arm uncovered; and you shall prophesy against it.
Behold, I lay bands on you, and you shall not turn you from one side to the other, until you have accomplished the days of your siege.
