9 ¶ “But as for you, take° wheat°, barley°, beans°, lentils°, millet° and aspelt°, put° them in one° vessel° and make° them into bread° for yourself; you shall eat° it according to the number° of the days° that you lie° on your side°, three° hundred° and ninety° days°. 10 Your food° which° you eat° [shall be] atwenty° shekels° a day° by weight°; you shall eat° it from time° to time°. 11 The water° you drink° shall be the sixth° part° of a hin° by measure°; you shall drink° it from time° to time°. 12 You shall eat° it as a barley° cake°, having baked° [it] in their sight° over human° adung°°.” 13 Then the LORD° said°, “Thus° will the sons° of Israel° eat° their bread° aunclean° among the nations° where°° I will banish° them.” 14 But I said°, “aAh°, Lord° IGOD°! Behold°, I have bnever° been° defiled°; for from my youth° until° now° I have never° eaten° what° cdied° of itself or was torn° by beasts°, nor° has any dunclean° meat° ever entered° my mouth°.” 15 Then He said° to me, “See°, I will give° you cow’s° dung° in place° of human° dung° over° which you will prepare° your bread°.” 16 Moreover, He said° to me, “Son° of man°, behold°, I am going to abreak° the staff° of bread° in Jerusalem°, and they will eat° bread° by bweight° and with anxiety°, and drink° water° by cmeasure° and in horror°, 17 because° bread° and water° will be scarce°; and they will be appalled° with one° another° and awaste° away° in their iniquity°.

1 ¶ Thou² also, sonº of man,º takeºª thee a tile,º and layºª it beforeº thee, and pourtrayºª upon² it the city,º [even]² Jerusalem:º 2 And layºª siegeº against² it, and buildºª a fortº against² it, and castºª a mountº against² it; setºª the campº also against² it, and setºª [battering] ramsº against² it round about.º 3 Moreover takeºª thou² unto thee an ironº pan,º and setºª it [for] a wallº of ironº between² thee and the city:º and setºª² thy faceº against² it, and it shall be² besieged,º and thou shalt lay siegeºª against² it.
