39 [a]Now when Jerusalem was captured [b]in the ninth year of Zedekiah king of Judah, in the tenth month, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon and all his army came to Jerusalem and laid siege to it;2 in the eleventh year of Zedekiah, in the fourth month, in the ninth day of the month, the city wall was breached.
2 Then lay siege against it, build a siege wall, pile up an assault ramp, set up camps, and place battering rams against it all around.3 Then get yourself an iron plate and set it up as an iron wall between yourself and the city, and direct your face toward it so that it is under siege, and besiege it. This will be a sign to the house of Israel.
4 “Then you are to lie down on your left side and put the wrongdoing of the house of Israel on it; you shall bear their wrongdoing for the number of days that you lie on it.5 For I have assigned you a number of days corresponding to the years of their wrongdoing, 390 days; so you shall bear the wrongdoing of the house of Israel.6 When you have completed these days, you shall lie down a second time, but on your right side, and bear the wrongdoing of the house of Judah; I have assigned it to you for forty days, a day for each year.7 Then you shall direct your face toward the siege of Jerusalem with your arm bared, and prophesy against it.8 Now behold, I will put ropes [a]around you so that you cannot turn from your one side to your other until you have completed the days of your siege.
