Ezekiel 4:16-17 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

16 Then he said to me: Son of man, I am about to break the staff of bread[a] in Jerusalem so they shall eat bread which they have weighed out anxiously and drink water which they have measured out fearfully. 17 Because they lack bread and water they shall be devastated; each and every one will waste away because of their guilt.


  1. 4:16 Break the staff of bread: reducing the supply of bread that supports life as the walking staff supports a traveler; cf. 5:16; 14:13; Lv 26:26; Ps 105:16; Is 3:1.
