And the word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, saying,
Son of man, put down in writing this very day: The king of Babylon let loose the weight of his attack against Jerusalem on this very day.
And make a comparison for this uncontrolled people, and say to them, This is what the Lord has said: Put on the cooking-pot, put it on the fire and put water in it:
And get the bits together, the fat tail, every good part, the leg and the top part of it: make it full of the best bones.
Take the best of the flock, put much wood under it: see that its bits are boiling well; let the bones be cooked inside it.
For this is what the Lord has said: A curse is on the town of blood, the cooking-pot which is unclean inside, which has never been made clean! take out its bits; its fate is still to come on it.
