← Ezekiel 3   Ezekiel 5 →

1 Ja sina, inimesepoeg, võta enesele telliskivi, pane see enese ette ja uurenda sellesse linn - Jeruusalemm!

2 Pane see piiramisseisukorda, ehita selle vastu piiramisseadmed, kuhja piiramisvall, aseta sõjaleerid ja paiguta müüripurustajad ümberringi!

3 Võta siis enesele raudpann ja pane see raudmüüriks enese ja linna vahele ning pööra oma pale kindlalt selle poole, nõnda et see oleks piiratav ja sina selle piiraja; see olgu Iisraeli soole märgiks!

4 Ja sina heida magama oma vasaku külje peale ja võta enda peale Iisraeli soo süü: niipalju päevi kui sa magad selle külje peal, kannad sa nende süüd!

5 Ja mina määran sulle selleks päevade arvuks nende süüaastad: kolmsada üheksakümmend päeva pead sa kandma Iisraeli soo süüd!

6 Ja kui sa need oled lõpetanud, siis teisel korral pead sa magama parema külje peal ja kandma Juuda soo süüd nelikümmend päeva; ma olen sulle määranud iga aasta kohta ühe päeva.

7 Ja pööra oma pale ja paljastatud käsivars ümberpiiratud Jeruusalemma poole ja ennusta sellele!

8 Ja vaata, ma panen su peale köied, et sa ei saaks pöörduda ühelt küljelt teisele, kuni sa oma piiramispäevad oled lõpetanud.

9 Võta nüüd enesele nisu, otri, ube, läätsi, hirssi ja okasnisu, pane need ühte astjasse ja tee neist enesele leiba, niipalju päevi kui sa magad oma külje peal: kolmsada üheksakümmend päeva pead sa seda sööma!

10 Ja su roog, mida sa päevas sööd, vaagigu kakskümmend seeklit; seda pead sa sööma aeg-ajalt.

11 Ja vett pead sa jooma mõõdu järgi: pool toopi; seda pead sa jooma aeg-ajalt.

12 Sa pead seda sööma nagu odrakooki ja küpsetama inimeste silme ees nende rooja peal.'

13 Ja Issand ütles: 'Nõnda peavad Iisraeli lapsed sööma oma roojast leiba paganate keskel, kuhu ma nad pillutan.'

14 Aga mina ütlesin: 'Oh Issand Jumal! Vaata, mu hing ei ole iialgi saanud roojaseks; oma noorusest tänini ei ole ma söönud raibet ega mahamurtut, ja mu suhu ei ole saanud roiskunud liha.'

15 Siis ta ütles mulle: 'Vaata, ma luban sulle inimrooja asemel veisesõnnikut; valmista siis oma leiba selle peal!'

16 Ja ta ütles mulle: 'Inimesepoeg, vaata, ma murran katki leivatoe Jeruusalemmas; siis nad saavad leiba süüa kaalu järgi ja murega ning vett juua mõõdu järgi ja hirmuga,

17 sellepärast et neil on puudus leivast ja veest - et nad hakkaksid üheskoos lõdisema ja kõduneksid oma süütegude sees.
