12 Eat the food as you would a loaf of barley bread; bake it in the sight of the people, using human excrement for fuel.”13 The Lord said, “In this way the people of Israel will eat defiled food among the nations where I will drive them.”
14 Then I said, “Not so, Sovereign Lord! I have never defiled myself. From my youth until now I have never eaten anything found dead or torn by wild animals. No impure meat has ever entered my mouth.”
15 “Very well,” he said, “I will let you bake your bread over cow dung instead of human excrement.”

The people will eat rationed food in anxiety and drink rationed water in despair,17 for food and water will be scarce. They will be appalled at the sight of each other and will waste away because of[a] their sin.
