Ezekiel 24:3-8

Context
24:3 Recite a proverb to this rebellious house 1  and say to them, ‘This is what the sovereign Lord says:

“‘Set on the pot, 2  set it on,

pour water in it too;

24:4 add the pieces of meat to it,

every good piece,

the thigh and the shoulder;

fill it with choice bones.

24:5 Take the choice bone of the flock,

heap up bones under it;

boil rapidly,

and boil its bones in it.

24:6 “‘Therefore this is what the sovereign Lord says:

Woe to the city of bloodshed,

the pot whose rot 3  is in it,

whose rot has not been removed 4  from it!

Empty it piece by piece.

No lot has fallen on it. 5 

24:7 For her blood was in it;

she poured it on an exposed rock;

she did not pour it on the ground to cover it up with dust.

24:8 To arouse anger, to take vengeance,

I have placed her blood on an exposed rock so that it cannot be covered up.
