And the word of the Lord came to me in the ninth year, in the tenth month, the tenth day of the month, saying:
Son of man, write thee the name of this day, on which the king of Babylon hath set himself against Jerusalem to day.
And thou shalt speak by a figure a parable to the provoking house, and say to them: Thus saith the Lord God: Set on a pot, set it on, I say, and put water in it.
Heap together into it the pieces thereof, every good piece, the thigh and the shoulder, choice pieces and full of bones.
Take the fattest of the flock, and lay together piles of bones under it: the seething thereof is boiling hot, and the bones thereof are thoroughly sodden in the midst of it.
Therefore thus saith the Lord God: Woe to the bloody city, to the pot whose rust is in it, and its rust is not gone out of it: cast it out piece by piece, there hath no lot fallen upon it.
For her blood is in the midst of her, she hath shed it upon the smooth rock: she hath not shed it upon the ground, that it might be covered with dust.
