Ezekiel 5:1-6 NRS

1 And you, O mortal, take a sharp sword; use it as a barber's razor and run it over your head and your beard; then take balances for weighing, and divide the hair.
2 One third of the hair you shall burn in the fire inside the city, when the days of the siege are completed; one third you shall take and strike with the sword all around the city; a and one third you shall scatter to the wind, and I will unsheathe the sword after them.
