Defiled Bread

9 "But as for you, take wheat, barley, beans, lentils, millet and 1spelt, put them in one vessel and make them into bread for yourself; you shall eat it according to the number of the days that you lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days. 10 "Your food which you eat shall be 2twenty shekels a day by weight; you shall eat it from time to time. 11 "The water you drink shall be the sixth part of a hin by measure; you shall drink it from time to time. 12 "You shall eat it as a barley cake, having baked it in their sight over human 3dung ." 13 Then the LORD said, "Thus will the sons of Israel eat their bread 4unclean among the nations where I will banish them." 14 But I said, "5Ah, Lord aGOD! Behold, I have 6never been defiled; for from my youth until now I have never eaten what 7died of itself or was torn by beasts, nor has any 8unclean meat ever entered my mouth." 15 Then He said to me, "See, I will give you cow's dung in place of human dung over which you will prepare your bread." 16 Moreover, He said to me, "Son of man, behold, I am going to 9break the staff of bread in Jerusalem, and they will eat bread by 10weight and with anxiety, and drink water by 11measure and in horror, 17 because bread and water will be scarce; and they will be appalled with one another and 12waste away in their iniquity.
