Again in the ninthH8671 year,H8141 in the tenthH6224 month,H2320 in the tenthH6218 day of the month,H2320 the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
SonH1121 of man,H120 writeH3789 you the nameH8034 of the day,H3117 even of thisH2088 sameH6106 day:H3117 the kingH4428 of BabylonH894 setH5564 himself againstH413 JerusalemH3389 thisH2088 sameH6106 day.H3117
And utterH4911 a parableH4912 to the rebelliousH4805 house,H1004 and sayH559 to them, ThusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 SetH8239 on a pot,H5518 setH8239 it on, and alsoH1571 pourH3332 waterH4325 into it:
GatherH622 the piecesH5409 thereof into it, even everyH3605 goodH2896 piece,H5409 the thigh,H3409 and the shoulder;H3802 fillH4390 it with the choiceH4005 bones.H6106
TakeH3947 the choiceH4005 of the flock,H6629 and burnH1754 alsoH1571 the bonesH6106 underH8478 it, and make it boilH7570 well,H7571 and let them seetheH1310 the bonesH6106 of it therein.H8432
WhyH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 WoeH188 to the bloodyH1818 city,H5892 to the potH5518 whoseH834 scumH2457 is therein, and whose scumH2457 is not goneH3318 out of it! bringH3318 it out pieceH5409 by piece;H5409 let noH3808 lotH1486 fallH5307 on it.
For her bloodH1818 is in the middleH8432 of her; she setH7760 it on the topH6706 of a rock;H5553 she pouredH8210 it not on the ground,H776 to coverH3680 it with dust;H6083
That it might cause furyH2534 to comeH5927 up to take vengeance;H5359 I have setH5414 her bloodH1818 on the topH6706 of a rock,H5553 that it should not be covered.H3680
ThereforeH3651 thusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 WoeH188 to the bloodyH1818 city!H5892 I will even make the pileH4071 for fire great.H1431
HeapH7235 on wood,H6086 kindleH1814 the fire,H784 consumeH8552 the flesh,H1320 and spiceH7543 it well, and let the bonesH6106 be burned.H2787
Then setH5975 it emptyH7385 on the coalsH1513 thereof, that the brassH5178 of it may be hot,H3179 and may burn,H2787 and that the filthinessH2932 of it may be moltenH5413 in it, that the scumH2457 of it may be consumed.H8552
She has weariedH3811 herself with lies,H8383 and her greatH7227 scumH2457 wentH3318 not forthH3318 out of her: her scumH2457 shall be in the fire.H784
In your filthinessH2932 is lewdness:H2154 becauseH3282 I have purgedH2891 you, and you were not purged,H2891 you shall not be purgedH2891 from your filthinessH2932 any more,H5750 tillH5704 I have caused my furyH2534 to restH5117 on you.
I the LORDH3068 have spokenH1696 it: it shall comeH935 to pass, and I will doH6213 it; I will not goH6544 back,H6544 neitherH3808 will I spare,H2347 neitherH3808 will I repent;H5162 according to your ways,H1870 and according to your doings,H5949 shall they judgeH8199 you, saidH5002 the LordH136 GOD.H3069
Also the wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
SonH1121 of man,H120 behold,H2005 I takeH3947 away from you the desireH4261 of your eyesH5869 with a stroke:H4046 yet neitherH3808 shall you mournH5594 norH3808 weep,H1058 neitherH3808 shall your tearsH1832 runH935 down.
ForbearH1826 to cry,H602 makeH6213 noH3808 mourningH60 for the dead,H4191 bindH2280 the tireH6287 of your head on you, and putH7760 on your shoesH5275 on your feet,H7272 and coverH5844 not your lips,H8222 and eatH398 not the breadH3899 of men.H582
So I spokeH1696 to the peopleH5971 in the morning:H1242 and at evenH6153 my wifeH802 died;H4191 and I didH6213 in the morningH1242 as I was commanded.H6680
And the peopleH5971 saidH559 to me, Will you not tellH5046 us whatH4100 theseH428 things are to us, that you doH6213 so?
Then I answeredH559 them, The wordH1697 of the LORDH3068 cameH1961 to me, saying,H559
SpeakH559 to the houseH1004 of Israel,H3478 ThusH3541 saidH559 the LordH136 GOD;H3069 Behold,H2005 I will profaneH2490 my sanctuary,H4720 the excellencyH1347 of your strength,H5797 the desireH4261 of your eyes,H5869 and that which your soulH5315 pities;H4263 and your sonsH1121 and your daughtersH1323 whomH834 you have leftH5800 shall fallH5307 by the sword.H2719
And you shall doH6213 as I have done:H6213 you shall not coverH5844 your lips,H8222 norH3808 eatH398 the breadH3899 of men.H582
And your tiresH6287 shall be on your heads,H7218 and your shoesH5275 on your feet:H7272 you shall not mournH5594 norH3808 weep;H1058 but you shall pineH4743 away for your iniquities,H5771 and mournH5098 oneH376 towardH413 another.H251
Thus EzekielH3168 is to you a sign:H4159 according to allH3605 that he has doneH6213 shall you do:H6213 and when this comes,H935 you shall knowH3045 that I am the LordH136 GOD.H3069
Also, you sonH1121 of man,H120 shall it not be in the dayH3117 when I takeH3947 from them their strength,H4581 the joyH4885 of their glory,H8597 the desireH4261 of their eyes,H5869 and that whereupon they setH4853 their minds,H5315 their sonsH1121 and their daughters,H1323
That he that escapesH6412 in that dayH3117 shall comeH935 to you, to cause you to hearH2045 it with your ears?H241
In that dayH3117 shall your mouthH6310 be openedH6605 to him which is escaped,H6412 and you shall speak,H1696 and be noH3808 moreH5750 dumb:H481 and you shall be a signH4159 to them; and they shall knowH3045 that I am the LORD.H3068
