Parable of the Boiling Pot

1 The word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth [day] of the month: 2 "Son of man, write down today's date, this very day. The king of Babylon has laid siege to Jerusalem this very day. 3 Now speak a parable to the rebellious house. Tell them: This is what the Lord God says: Put the pota on [the fire]- put [it] on, and then pour water into it! 4 Place the pieces of meat in it, every good piece- thigh and shoulder. Fill it with choice bones. 5 Take the choicest of the flock and also pile up the fuelb under it. Bring it to a boil and cook the bones in it." 6 Therefore, this is what the Lord God says: Woe to the city of bloodshed, the pot that has rust inside it, and whose rust will not come off! Empty it piece by piece; lots should not be cast for its contents.
