Bible: Ezekiel 5:1-4

5:1As for you, son of man, take a sharp sword and use it as a barber’s razor. 1  Shave off some of the hair from your head and your beard. 2  Then take scales and divide up the hair you cut off. 5:2 Burn a third of it in the fire inside the city when the days of your siege are completed. Take a third and slash it with a sword all around the city. Scatter a third to the wind, and I will unleash a sword behind them. 5:3 But take a few strands of hair 3  from those and tie them in the ends of your garment. 4  5:4 Again, take more of them and throw them into the fire, 5  and burn them up. From there a fire will spread to all the house of Israel.
