King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
15 Also the word of the LORD came unto me, saying , 15 The word of the LORD came to me:
16 Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of thine eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep , neither shall thy tears run down . 16 "Son of man, with one blow I am about to take away from you the delight of your eyes. Yet do not lament or weep or shed any tears.
17 Forbear to cry , make no mourning for the dead , bind the tire of thine head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet, and cover not thy lips, and eat not the bread of men. 17 Groan quietly; do not mourn for the dead. Keep your turban fastened and your sandals on your feet; do not cover the lower part of your face or eat the customary food [of mourners]."
18 So I spake unto the people in the morning: and at even my wife died ; and I did in the morning as I was commanded . 18 So I spoke to the people in the morning, and in the evening my wife died. The next morning I did as I had been commanded.
