Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:1 - On January 15,[fn] during the ninth year of King Jehoiachin’s captivity, this message came to me from the LORD:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:2 - “Son of man, write down today’s date, because on this very day the king of Babylon is beginning his attack against Jerusalem.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:3 - Then give these rebels an illustration with this message from the Sovereign LORD:
“Put a pot on the fire,
and pour in some water.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:4 - Fill it with choice pieces of meat—
the rump and the shoulder
and all the most tender cuts.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:5 - Use only the best sheep from the flock,
and heap fuel on the fire beneath the pot.
Bring the pot to a boil,
and cook the bones along with the meat.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:6 - “Now this is what the Sovereign LORD says:
What sorrow awaits Jerusalem,
the city of murderers!
She is a cooking pot
whose corruption can’t be cleaned out.
Take the meat out in random order,
for no piece is better than another.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:7 - For the blood of her murders
is splashed on the rocks.
It isn’t even spilled on the ground,
where the dust could cover it!

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:8 - So I will splash her blood on a rock
for all to see,
an expression of my anger
and vengeance against her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:9 - “This is what the Sovereign LORD says:
What sorrow awaits Jerusalem,
the city of murderers!
I myself will pile up the fuel beneath her.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:10 - Yes, heap on the wood!
Let the fire roar to make the pot boil.
Cook the meat with many spices,
and afterward burn the bones.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:11 - Now set the empty pot on the coals.
Heat it red hot!
Burn away the filth and corruption.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:12 - But it’s hopeless;
the corruption can’t be cleaned out.
So throw it into the fire.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:13 - Your impurity is your lewdness
and the corruption of your idolatry.
I tried to cleanse you,
but you refused.
So now you will remain in your filth
until my fury against you has been satisfied.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:14 - “I, the LORD, have spoken! The time has come, and I won’t hold back. I will not change my mind, and I will have no pity on you. You will be judged on the basis of all your wicked actions, says the Sovereign LORD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:15 - Then this message came to me from the LORD:

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:16 - “Son of man, with one blow I will take away your dearest treasure. Yet you must not show any sorrow at her death. Do not weep; let there be no tears.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:17 - Groan silently, but let there be no wailing at her grave. Do not uncover your head or take off your sandals. Do not perform the usual rituals of mourning or accept any food brought to you by consoling friends.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:18 - So I proclaimed this to the people the next morning, and in the evening my wife died. The next morning I did everything I had been told to do.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:19 - Then the people asked, “What does all this mean? What are you trying to tell us?”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:20 - So I said to them, “A message came to me from the LORD,

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:21 - and I was told to give this message to the people of Israel. This is what the Sovereign LORD says: I will defile my Temple, the source of your security and pride, the place your heart delights in. Your sons and daughters whom you left behind in Judea will be slaughtered by the sword.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:22 - Then you will do as Ezekiel has done. You will not mourn in public or console yourselves by eating the food brought by friends.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:23 - Your heads will remain covered, and your sandals will not be taken off. You will not mourn or weep, but you will waste away because of your sins. You will mourn privately for all the evil you have done.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:24 - Ezekiel is an example for you; you will do just as he has done. And when that time comes, you will know that I am the Sovereign LORD.”

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:25 - Then the LORD said to me, “Son of man, on the day I take away their stronghold—their joy and glory, their heart’s desire, their dearest treasure—I will also take away their sons and daughters.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:26 - And on that day a survivor from Jerusalem will come to you in Babylon and tell you what has happened.

Unchecked Copy BoxEze 24:27 - And when he arrives, your voice will suddenly return so you can talk to him, and you will be a symbol for these people. Then they will know that I am the LORD.”
