Ezekiel 22:18-22

Context
22:18 “Son of man, the house of Israel has become slag to me. All of them are like bronze, tin, iron, and lead in the furnace; 1  they are the worthless slag of silver. 22:19 Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says: ‘Because all of you 2  have become slag, look out! – I am about to gather you in the middle of Jerusalem. 3  22:20 As silver, bronze, iron, lead, and tin are gathered in a furnace so that the fire can melt them, so I will gather you in my anger and in my rage. I will deposit you there 4  and melt you. 22:21 I will gather you and blow on you with the fire of my fury, and you will be melted in it. 22:22 As silver is melted in a furnace, so you will be melted in it, and you will know that I, the Lord, have poured out my anger on you.’”
