1 The word of ADONAI came to me on the tenth day of the tenth month of the ninth year: 1 In the ninth year, in the tenth month on the tenth day, the word of the LORD came to me:
2 "Human being, write down today's date; because on this very day the king of Bavel has begun his attack on Yerushalayim. 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 tell this allegory to these rebels; say that Adonai ELOHIM says: 'Put a pot on the fire; put it there, pour water in 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 Put in it pieces of meat, all the best parts - the thigh, the shoulder; fill it with the choicest cuts, 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 taken from the pick of the flock, and pile the bones underneath. Bring it to a rolling boil, till it's all cooked, even the bones.' 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 "Therefore Adonai ELOHIM says: 'Woe to the city drenched with blood, to the pot whose scum is in it, and whose scum has not been removed. Empty it piece by piece, without troubling to draw lots. 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.
