Thus said Jehovah unto me, `Go, and thou hast got for thee a girdle of linen, and hast placed it on thy loins, and into water thou dost not cause it to enter:'
and I get the girdle, according to the word of Jehovah, and I place [it] on my loins.
And there is a word of Jehovah unto me a second time, saying,
`Take the girdle that thou hast got, that [is] on thy loins, and rise, go to Phrat, and hide it there in a hole of the rock;
and I go and hide it by Phrat, as Jehovah commanded me.
And it cometh to pass, at the end of many days, that Jehovah saith unto me, `Rise, go to Phrat, and take thence the girdle, that I commanded thee to hide there;'
