King James Version (KJV) New International Version (NIV)
1 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came unto me, saying , 1 In the ninth year, in the tenth month on the tenth day, the word of the LORD came to me:
2 Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day. 2 "Son of man, record this date, this very date, because the king of Babylon has laid siege to Jerusalem this very day.
3 And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on , and also pour water into it: 3 Tell this rebellious house a parable and say to them: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'Put on the cooking pot; put it on and pour water into it.
4 Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones. 4 Put into it the pieces of meat, all the choice pieces--the leg and the shoulder. Fill it with the best of these bones;
5 Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it, and make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein. 5 take the pick of the flock. Pile wood beneath it for the bones; bring it to a boil and cook the bones in it.
6 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose scum is therein, and whose scum is not gone out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon it. 6 " 'For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'Woe to the city of bloodshed, to the pot now encrusted, whose deposit will not go away! Empty it piece by piece without casting lots for them.
7 For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the top of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it with dust; 7 " 'For the blood she shed is in her midst: She poured it on the bare rock; she did not pour it on the ground, where the dust would cover it.
8 That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not be covered . 8 To stir up wrath and take revenge I put her blood on the bare rock, so that it would not be covered.
9 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great . 9 " 'Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: " 'Woe to the city of bloodshed! I, too, will pile the wood high.
10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned . 10 So heap on the wood and kindle the fire. Cook the meat well, mixing in the spices; and let the bones be charred.
11 Then set it empty upon the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot , and may burn , and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed . 11 Then set the empty pot on the coals till it becomes hot and its copper glows so its impurities may be melted and its deposit burned away.
12 She hath wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire. 12 It has frustrated all efforts; its heavy deposit has not been removed, not even by fire.
13 In thy filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged , thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest upon thee. 13 " 'Now your impurity is lewdness. Because I tried to cleanse you but you would not be cleansed from your impurity, you will not be clean again until my wrath against you has subsided.
14 I the LORD have spoken it: it shall come to pass , and I will do it; I will not go back , neither will I spare , neither will I repent ; according to thy ways, and according to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD. 14 " 'I the LORD have spoken. The time has come for me to act. I will not hold back; I will not have pity, nor will I relent. You will be judged according to your conduct and your actions, declares the Sovereign LORD.' "
