The Defiled Bread

9Take you also to you wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and fitches, and put them in one vessel, and make you bread thereof, according to the number of the days that you shall lie on your side, three hundred and ninety days shall you eat thereof. 10And your meat which you shall eat shall be by weight, twenty shekels a day: from time to time shall you eat it. 11You shall drink also water by measure, the sixth part of an hin: from time to time shall you drink. 12And you shall eat it as barley cakes, and you shall bake it with dung that comes out of man, in their sight. 13And the LORD said, Even thus shall the children of Israel eat their defiled bread among the Gentiles, where I will drive them. 14Then said I, Ah Lord GOD! behold, my soul has not been polluted: for from my youth up even till now have I not eaten of that which dies of itself, or is torn in pieces; neither came there abominable flesh into my mouth. 15Then he said to me, See, I have given you cow's dung for man's dung, and you shall prepare your bread therewith. 16Moreover he said to 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: 17That they may want bread and water, and be astonished one with another, and consume away for their iniquity.
