Thou also, son of man,take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:2
And laysiege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.3
Moreover take thou unto thee an ironapan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.4Lie thou also upon thy leftside, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.5
For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days,threehundred and ninetydays: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.6
And when thou hast accomplishedthem,lieagain on thy rightside, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judahfortydays: I have appointed thee each dayfor a year .
