Then the word of the LORDcame to me, saying,
2"Son of man, you live in the 1midst of the 2rebellioushouse, who3have eyes to see but do not see, ears to hear but do not hear; for they are a rebellioushouse.
"Therefore, son of man, prepare for yourself baggage for exile and go into exile by day in their sight; even go into exile from your place to anotherplace in their sight. 4Perhaps they will aunderstandthough they are a rebellioushouse.
4"Bring your baggage out by day in their sight, as baggage for exile. Then you will go out 5at evening in their sight, as those going into exile.
5"Dig a hole through the wall in their sight and bgo out through it.
6"Load the baggage on your shoulder in their sight and carry it out in the dark. You shall 6cover your face so that you cannotsee the land, for I have set you as a 7sign to the house of Israel."
