Ezekiel, Chapter 24

24:1 Again, in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth [day] of the month, the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
24:2 Son of Man, write for yourself the name of the day, [even] of this very same day: the king of Babylon drew close to Jerusalem this very same day.
24:3 And utter a parable to the rebellious house, and say to them, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh, Set on the cauldron, set it on, and also pour water into it:
24:4 gather its pieces into it, even every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones.
24:5 Take the choice of the flock, and also pile the bones under it; make it boil well; yes, its bones were boiled in the midst of it.
24:6 Therefore thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Woe to the bloody city, to the cauldron whose corrosion is in it, and whose corrosion has not gone out of it! Take out of it piece after piece; No lot has fallen on it.
24:7 For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it on the bare rock; she did not pour it on the ground, to cover it with dust.
24:8 That it may cause wrath to come up to take vengeance, I have set her blood on the bare rock, that it should not be covered.
24:9 Therefore thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Woe to the bloody city! I also will make the pile great.
24:10 Heap on the wood, make the fire hot, boil well the flesh, and make thick the broth, and let the bones be burned.
24:11 Then set it empty on its coals, that it may be hot, and its bronze may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the corrosion of it may be consumed.
24:12 It has frustrated the efforts [to clean it]; yet her great corrosion does not go forth out of her; her corrosion [does not go forth] by fire.
24:13 In your filthiness is lewdness: because I have cleansed you and you were not cleansed, you will not be cleansed from your filthiness anymore, until I have caused my wrath toward you to rest.
24:14 I, Yahweh, have spoken it: it will come to pass, and I will do it: I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither will I repent; according to your ways, and according to your doings, they will judge you, says the Sovereign Yahweh.
24:15 Also the word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
24:16 Son of Man, look, I take away from you the desire of your eyes with a stroke: yet you will neither mourn nor weep, neither will your tears run down.
24:17 Sigh, but not aloud, make no mourning for the dead; bind your headtire on you, and put your sandals on your feet, and don't cover your lips, and don't eat the bread of men.
24:18 So I spoke to the people in the morning; and at evening my wife died; and I did in the morning as I was commanded.
24:19 And the people said to me, Will you not tell us what these things are to us, that you do so?
24:20 Then I said to them, The word of Yahweh came to me, saying,
24:21 Speak to the house of Israel, Thus says the Sovereign Yahweh: Look, I will profane my sanctuary, the pride of your+ power, the desire of your+ eyes, and that which your+ soul pities; and your+ sons and your+ daughters whom you+ have left behind will fall by the sword.
24:22 And you+ will do as I have done: you+ will not cover your+ lips, nor eat the bread of men.
24:23 And your+ tires will be on your+ heads, and your+ sandals on your+ feet: you+ will not mourn nor weep; but you+ will pine away in your+ iniquities, and moan one toward another.
24:24 Thus Ezekiel will be to you+ a sign; according to all that he has done you+ will do: when this comes, then you+ will know that I am the Sovereign Yahweh.
24:25 And you, Son of Man, will it not be in the day when I take from them their strength, the joy of their glory, the desire of their eyes, and that on which they set their soul, their sons and their daughters,
24:26 that in that day he who escapes will come to you, to cause you to hear it with your ears?
24:27 In that day your mouth will be opened to him who has escaped, and you will speak, and be mute no more: so you will be a sign to them; and they will know that I am Yahweh.
