Yechezkel Four: Siege

This chapter is very confusing. Ezekiel is told to take a brick and engrave Jerusalem on it. “And you shall lay siege upon it and build around it a stone-throwing catapult, and you shall pour over it a siege mound, and you shall place camps upon it and place villages around it (Ezekiel 4:2).” Then, somehow, Ezekiel is supposed to use his body movements to simulate the siege of Israel and Judah. For 390 days he’s to lie on his back, eating food that he has prepared to sustain himself. I’m assuming that I’m missing something, because I can’t seem to find any particular meaning in this chapter. Hopefully something deeper will come to me tomorrow!
