Siege of Jerusalem Predicted

1 "Now you son of man, 1get yourself a brick, place it before you and inscribe a city on it, Jerusalem. 2 "Then 2lay siege against it, build a siege wall, araise up a ramp, pitch camps and place battering rams against it all around. 3 "Then get yourself an iron plate and set it up as an iron wall between you and the city, and set your face toward it so that 3it is under siege, and besiege it. This is a 4sign to the house of Israel. 4 "As for you, lie down on your left side and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel on it; you shall 5bear their iniquity for the number of days that you lie on it. 5 "For I have assigned you a number of days corresponding to the years of their iniquity, three hundred and ninety days; thus 6you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 6 "When you have completed these, you shall lie down a second time, but on your right side and bear the iniquity of the house of Judah; I have assigned it to you for forty days, a day for 7each year. 7 "Then you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm bared and 8prophesy against it. 8 "Now behold, I will 9put ropes on you so that you cannot turn from one side to the other until you have completed the days of your siege.
