New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
4 Then lie on your left side, and place the punishment of the house of Israel upon it; you shall bear their punishment for the number of the days that you lie there. 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 assign to you a number of days, three hundred ninety days, equal to the number of the years of their punishment; and so you shall bear the punishment 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 punishment of the house of Judah; forty days I assign you, one 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 You shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and with your arm bared you shall prophesy against it. 7 Turn your face toward the siege of Jerusalem and with bared arm prophesy against her.
8 See, I am putting cords 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.
