Ezekiel 24:1-6 NRS

1 In the ninth year, in the tenth month, on the tenth day of the month, the word of the Lord came to me:
2 Mortal, write down the name of this day, this very day. The king of Babylon has laid siege to Jerusalem this very day.
3 And utter an allegory to the rebellious house and say to them, Thus says the Lord God: Set on the pot, set it on, pour in water also;
4 put in it the pieces, all the good pieces, the thigh and the shoulder; fill it with choice bones.
5 Take the choicest one of the flock, pile the logs a under it; boil its pieces, b seethe c also its bones in it.
