Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
12 And you shall eat it as a barley cake, baking it in their sight on human dung." 12 Eat the food as you would a barley cake; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel."
13 And the LORD said, "Thus shall the people of Israel eat their bread unclean, among the nations whither I will drive them." 13 The LORD said, "In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them."
14 Then I said, "Ah Lord GOD! behold, I have never defiled myself; from my youth up till now I have never eaten what died of itself or was torn by beasts, nor has foul flesh come into my mouth." 14 Then I said, "Not so, Sovereign LORD! I have never defiled myself. From my youth until now I have never eaten anything found dead or torn by wild animals. No unclean meat has ever entered my mouth."
