1 And the word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth of the month, saying,
“Put on the cpot, put it on and also pour water in it;
Every good piece, the thigh and the shoulder;
Fill it with choice bones.
5 “Take the achoicest of the flock,
Make it boil vigorously.
Also seethe its bones in it.”
“Woe to the abloody city,
To the pot in which there is rust
And whose rust has not gone out of it!
Take out of it piece after piece,
1Without making a choice.
She placed it on the bare rock;
She did not apour it on the ground
To cover it with dust.
8 “That it may acause wrath to come up to take vengeance,
I have put her blood on the bare rock,
That it may not be covered.”
“aWoe to the bloody city!
I also will make the pile great.
1Boil the flesh well
And mix in the spices,
And let the bones be burned.
11 “Then aset it empty on its coals
So that it may be hot
And its bronze may 1glow
And its bfilthiness may be melted in it,
Its rust consumed.
12 “She has awearied Me with toil,
Yet her great rust has not gone from her;
Let her rust be in the fire!
Because I would have cleansed you,
Yet you are anot clean,
You will not be cleansed from your filthiness again
14 “I, the Lord, have spoken; it is acoming and I will act. I will not relent, and I will not bpity and I will not be sorry; caccording to your ways and according to your deeds 1I will judge you,” declares the Lord God.’ ”
15 And the word of the Lord came to me saying,
21 ‘Speak to the house of Israel, “Thus says the Lord God, ‘Behold, I am about to profane My sanctuary, the pride of your power, the adesire of your eyes and the delight of your soul; and your bsons and your daughters whom you have left behind will fall by the sword.
24 ‘Thus Ezekiel will be a asign to you; according to all that he has done you will do; when it comes, then you will know that I am the Lord God.’ ”
25 ‘As for you, son of man, will it not be on the day when I take from them their astronghold, the joy of their 1pride, the desire of their eyes and 2their heart’s delight, their sons and their daughters,
26 that on that day he who aescapes will come to you with information for your ears?
27 ‘On that day your amouth will be opened to him who escaped, and you will speak and be mute no longer. Thus you will be a sign to them, and they will know that I am the Lord.’ ”
