Ezekiel 4:9, Ezekiel’s bread

Take wheat and barley, beans and lentils, millet and spelt; put them in a storage jar and use them to make bread for yourself. You are to eat it during the 390 days you lie on your side.

//Here’s a healthy treat that you can enjoy even if bed-ridden. In one of Ezekiel’s more questionable stunts, he lay on his left side, bound with ropes, for 390 days, bearing the sin of Israel. One day for each year of their sin. During all these days, he ate only this bread, so it must be nourishing.

You can try this bread yourself, if you wish. Food for Life sells “Ezekiel 4:9″ bread in yuppie markets everywhere.

Do, however, be very careful about which bread you order. You don’t want to accidentally get the “Ezekiel 4:13″ recipe. After 390 days, Ezekiel was instructed to roll over on his right side, and there eat bread for 40 days, representing the 40 years that Judah sinned. This bread was baked with human excrement. Ezekiel protested, and was granted to right to cook with cow manure instead, but I still think the first recipe is preferable.
