Revised Standard Version (RSV) New International Version (NIV)
4 "Then lie upon your left side, and I will lay the punishment of the house of Israel upon you; for the number of the days that you lie upon it, you shall bear their punishment. 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 and ninety days, equal to the number of the years of their punishment; so long shall you 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 And 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, 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 And you shall set your face toward the siege of Jerusalem, with your arm bared; and you shall prophesy against the city. 7 Turn your face toward the siege of Jerusalem and with bared arm prophesy against her.
8 And, behold, I will put cords upon you, so that you cannot turn from one side to the other, till 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.
