Jerusalem's Desolation Foretold

1 "As for you, son of man, take a 1sharp sword; take and use it as a barber's razor on your head and beard. Then take 2scales for weighing and divide the hair.
2 "One third you shall burn in the fire at the center of the city, when the 3days of the siege are completed. Then you shall take one third and strike it with the sword all around the city, and one third you shall scatter to the wind; and I will 4unsheathe a sword behind them.
3 "Take also a few in number from them and bind them in the edges of your robes.
