4 "As for you, lie down on your left side and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel on it; you shall 1bear 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 2you 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 3each year.
7 "Then you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm bared and 4prophesy against it.
8 "Now behold, I will 5put ropes on you so that you cannot turn from one side to the other until you have completed the days of your siege.
