1 "Et tu, fili hominis, sume tibi laterem et pones eum coram te et describes in eo civitatem Ierusalem.
2 Et ordinabis adversus eam obsidionem et aedificabis munitiones et comportabis aggerem et dabis contra eam castra et pones arietes in gyro.
3 Et tu sume tibi sartaginem ferream et pones eam in murum ferreum inter te et inter civitatem; et obfirmabis faciem tuam ad eam, et erit in obsidionem, et circumdabis eam: signum est domui Israel.
4 Et tu recumbes super latus tuum sinistrum et pones iniquitates domus Israel super eo; numero dierum, quibus recumbes super illud, assumes iniquitatem eorum.
5 Ego autem dedi tibi annos iniquitatis eorum numero dierum trecentos et nonaginta dies, et portabis iniquitatem domus Israel.
6 Et cum compleveris haec, recumbes super latus tuum dextrum secundo et assumes iniquitatem domus Iudae quadraginta diebus; diem pro anno, diem, inquam, pro anno dedi tibi.
7 Et ad obsidionem Ierusalem convertes faciem tuam, et brachium tuum erit exsertum, et prophetabis adversus eam.
8 Ecce circumdedi te vinculis, et non te convertes a latere tuo in latus aliud, donec compleas dies obsidionis tuae.
9 Et tu sume tibi frumentum et hordeum et fabam et lentem et milium et far et mittes ea in vas unum et facies tibi panes numero dierum, quibus recumbes super latus tuum: trecentis et nonaginta diebus comedes illud.
10 Cibus autem tuus, quo vesceris, erit in pondere viginti stateres in die; a tempore usque ad tempus comedes illud.
11 Et aquam in mensura bibes, sextam partem hin; a tempore usque ad tempus bibes illud.
12 Et quasi subcinericium hordeaceum comedes illud; et stercore, quod egreditur de homine, coques illud in oculis eorum".
13 Et dixit Dominus: "Sic comedent filii Israel panem suum pollutum inter gentes, ad quas eiciam eos".
14 Et dixi: "Heu, Domine Deus, ecce anima mea non est polluta, et morticinum et laceratum a bestiis non comedi ab infantia mea usque nunc, et non est ingressa in os meum caro immunda".
15 Et dixit ad me: "Ecce dedi tibi fimum boum pro stercoribus humanis, et facies panem tuum in eo".
16 Et dixit ad me: "Fili hominis, ecce ego conteram baculum panis in Ierusalem, et comedent panem in pondere et in sollicitudine et aquam in mensura et in desolatione bibent,
17 ut, deficientibus pane et aqua, desoletur unusquisque cum fratre suo, et contabescant in iniquitatibus suis.
King James Version
1 Thou also, son of man, take thee a tile, and lay it before thee, and pourtray upon it the city, even Jerusalem:
2 And lay siege against it, and build a fort against it, and cast a mount against it; set the camp also against it, and set battering rams against it round about.
3 Moreover take thou unto thee an iron pan, and set it for a wall of iron between thee and the city: and set thy face against it, and it shall be besieged, and thou shalt lay siege against it. This shall be a sign to the house of Israel.
4 Lie thou also upon thy left side, and lay the iniquity of the house of Israel upon it: according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon it thou shalt bear their iniquity.
5 For I have laid upon thee the years of their iniquity, according to the number of the days, three hundred and ninety days: so shalt thou bear the iniquity of the house of Israel.
6 And when thou hast accomplished them, lie again on thy right side, and thou shalt bear the iniquity of the house of Judah forty days: I have appointed thee each day for a year.
7 Therefore thou shalt set thy face toward the siege of Jerusalem, and thine arm shall be uncovered, and thou shalt prophesy against it.
8 And, behold, I will lay bands upon thee, and thou shalt not turn thee from one side to another, till thou hast ended the days of thy siege.
9 ¶ Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentiles, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.
10 And thy meat which thou shalt eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shalt thou eat it.
11 Thou shalt drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shalt thou drink.
12 And thou shalt eat it as barley cakes, and thou shalt bake it with dung that cometh out of man, in their sight.
13 And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, whither I will drive them.
14 Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul hath not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dieth of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth.
15 Then he said unto me, Lo, I have given thee cow's dung for man's dung, and thou shalt prepare thy bread therewith.
16 Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, behold, I will break the staff of bread in Jerusalem: and they shall eat bread by weight, and with care; and they shall drink water by measure, and with astonishment:
17 That they may want bread and water, and be astonied one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
