Ezekiel 24:1-7 (Good News Translation)

View In My Bible
1 On the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year of our exile, the Lord spoke to me. 2 "Mortal man," he said, "write down today's date, because this is the day that the king of Babylonia is beginning the siege of Jerusalem. 1 3 Tell my rebellious people this parable that I, the Sovereign Lord, have for them: Set the pot on the fire and fill it up with water. 4 Put in the best pieces of meat - the shoulders and the legs - fill it with choice bony pieces too. 5 Use the meat of the finest sheep; pile the wood a under the pot. Let the water boil; boil the bones and the meat." 6 This is what the Sovereign Lord is saying: "The city of murderers is doomed! It is like a corroded pot that is never cleaned. Piece after piece of meat is taken out, and not one is left. 7 There was murder in the city, but the blood was not spilled on the ground where the dust could hide it; it was spilled on a bare rock.
