The useless pot

1 In the ninth year, on the tenth day of the tenth month, the LORD's word came to me: 2 Human one, write down today's date, because today the king of Babylon has set up camp at Jerusalem—today! 3 Compose a parable for the rebels' household and say to them, The LORD God proclaims: Put on the pot, set it on, and fill it with water. 4 Add meat to it, every good piece. With shoulder and thigh, the meatiest bones, fill it up. 5 Take the flock's best animal; arrange the wooda beneath it. Bring it to a rolling boil, and cook its bones in it. 6 The LORD God proclaims: Horror! You bloody city, you corroded pot; pot whose corrosion can't be removed! Empty it piece by piece. She is rejectedb 7 because her blood is still with her. She didn't pour it out on the ground so that it could be covered with dirt, but she spread it out on a bare rock.
