4 "As for you, lie down on your left side and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel on it; you shall bear their iniquity for the number of days that you lie on it. 4 "Then lie on your left side and put the sin of the house of Israel upon yourself. You are to bear their sin for the number of days you lie on your side.
5 "For I have assigned you a number of days corresponding to the years of their iniquity, three hundred and ninety days; thus you shall bear the iniquity of the house of Israel. 5 I have assigned you the same number of days as the years of their sin. So for 390 days you will bear the sin 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 each year. 6 "After you have finished this, lie down again, this time on your right side, and bear the sin of the house of Judah. I have assigned you 40 days, a day for each year.
7 "Then you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm bared and prophesy against it. 7 Turn your face toward the siege of Jerusalem and with bared arm prophesy against her.
8 "Now behold, I will put ropes on you so that you cannot turn from one side to the other until you have completed the days of your siege. 8 I will tie you up with ropes so that you cannot turn from one side to the other until you have finished the days of your siege.
