15-17God's Message came to me: "Son of man, I'm about to take from you the delight of your life—a real blow, I know. But, please, no tears. Keep your grief to yourself. No public mourning. Get dressed as usual and go about your work—none of the usual funeral rituals."
18I preached to the people in the morning. That evening my wife died. The next morning I did as I'd been told.
