1 Kings 22:27; Psalm 127:2; Ezekiel 4:10–11

27 and say, Thus says the king, kPut this fellow in prison and feed him meager rations of bread and water, luntil I come in peace.


It is in vain that you rise up early

and go late to rest,

eating the bread of anxious ytoil;

for he gives to his zbeloved asleep.


10 And your food that you eat shall be oby weight, ptwenty shekels1 a day; from day to day2 you shall eat it. 11 And water you shall drink oby measure, the sixth part of a hin;3 from day to day you shall drink.
