Bind on your turban and put your shoes on your feet, and do not cover your mustache and do not eat the bread of men.”18 So I spoke to the people in the morning, and in the evening my wife died.

You will not mourn and you will not weep, but you will rot away in your iniquities and you will groan [a]to one another.
