And thou, son of man, take thee a sharp knife, take thee a barber's razor, and cause it to pass upon thine head and upon thy beard: then take thee balances to weigh, and divide the hair.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

5:1 divide the hair. The threefold division of the prophet’s hair was to indicate that approximately a third of the population would die in the fire when the city would be burned, a third would die by the sword, and a third would be scattered. See also Ezekiel 5:12.
