Context
Ezekiel's Wife Dies

15Also the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 16Son of man, behold, I take away from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke: yet neither shall you mourn nor weep, neither shall your tears run down. 17Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the tire of your head on you, and put on your shoes on your feet, and cover not your lips, and eat not the bread of men. 18So I spoke to the people in the morning: and at even my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded. 19And the people said to me, Will you not tell us what these things are to us, that you do so? 20Then I answered them, The word of the LORD came to me, saying, 21Speak to the house of Israel, Thus said the Lord GOD; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul pities; and your sons and your daughters whom you have left shall fall by the sword. 22And you shall do as I have done: you shall not cover your lips, nor eat the bread of men. 23And your tires shall be on your heads, and your shoes on your feet: you shall not mourn nor weep; but you shall pine away for your iniquities, and mourn one toward another. 24Thus Ezekiel is to you a sign: according to all that he has done shall you do: and when this comes, you shall know that I am the Lord GOD. 25Also, you son of man, shall it not be in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes, and that whereupon they set their minds, their sons and their daughters, 26That he that escapes in that day shall come to you, to cause you to hear it with your ears? 27In that day shall your mouth be opened to him which is escaped, and you shall speak, and be no more dumb: and you shall be a sign to them; and they shall know that I am the LORD.
