Ezekiel 4
Peshitta Holy Bible Translated Par ▾ 
1“But you, son of man, take for yourself a brick and set it in front of you and trace on it the city Jerusalem 2And make a siege against it and build against it a mound and set ambush against it and make camps encamp against it, and make it battlements as a circle 3And take for yourself a grid of iron and set your face against it and it shall be in a siege, and you shall besiege it. This is a sign to those of the household of Israel

4And you lie on your left side, and set the evil of the household of Israel against it for the number of the days that you lie against it. You shall bear their evil 5And I have given you two evils for the number of days, three hundred and ninety days, and you shall bear the evil of the house of Israel 6And you shall complete these, and you shall lie on your right side, and you shall bear the evil of the house of Yehuda forty days, a day for a year I have given you 7And for the siege of Jerusalem you shall prepare your face, and your arm will be strong, and you shall prophesy against it 8Behold, I cast chains upon you and you shall not turn from your side to your other side, until the days of your siege will be fulfilled

9And take for yourself wheat and barley, and beans and lentils, and millet and rye, and put them in one vessel and make them bread for yourself for the number of days that you lay on your side; three hundred and ninety days you shall eat it 10And your food shall be twenty shekels weight in a day, from time to time 11And drink water by measure, one sixth part of a hin; from time to time you shall drink 12And you shall eat a flat cake of barley that is baked on the dung of a son of man in their sight 13LORD JEHOVAH said: “Thus the children of Israel shall eat their bread in defilement among the nations where I shall drive them” 14And I said: “God, LORD OF LORDS, my soul has not been defiled, or what is sick and that which was torn by an animal I have not eaten from my youth even until today, and defiled meat has not entered my mouth” 15And he said to me: “Behold, I have given you dung of oxen instead of dung of the children of man, that you will make your bread on them” 16And he said to me: “Son of man, behold, I break the staff of grain in Jerusalem and they shall eat bread by the shekel, and they shall drink water in thirst by measure 17And they shall be needy for bread and for water, and a man and his brothers shall come to an end, and they shall be consumed in their evil
