Siege of Jerusalem Illustrated on a Brick

1 "Now,a son of man,b take for yourself a brick, and you must put it {before you},c and you must portray on it a city, Jerusalem. 2 And you must build against it siege works, and you must build against it [a] bulwark, and you must heap against it a siege ramp, and you must set up against it camps and put against it a battering ram all around. 3 And take for yourself a plate of iron, and you must place it [as] a wall of iron between you and the city, and you must set your face against it, and it must be {under siege},d and you must lay the siege against it; it is a sign for the house of Israel. 4 And you, lie down on your left side, and you must pute the guilt of the house of Israel on it. You will carry their guilt the number of days that you will lie on it. 5 And I will give to you the years of their guilt according to [the] number of [the] days, three hundred and ninety days, and you must bear the guiltf of the house of Israel. 6 When you have completed these, then you must lie a second [time] on your right side; and you must bear the guiltg of the house of Judah forty days, a day for each year, a day for each year I give it to you. 7 And toward the siege of Jerusalem you must set your face and your bared arm; then you must prophesy against it. 8 Nowh look! I [will] put on you cords, and you may not turn yourself from [one] side to your [other] side until you complete the days of your siege.
