Ezekiel 24


24:1 Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth
 [day] of the month, the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
24:2 Son of man, Write for thee the name of the day, [even] of
 this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against
 Jerusalem this same day.
24:3 And utter a parable to the rebellious house, and say to
 them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, 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 burn also the bones under
 it, [and] make it boil well, and let them boil its bones in it.
24:6 Wherefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city,
 to the pot whose scum [is] therein, and whose scum is not gone
 out of it! bring it out piece by piece; let no lot fall upon
 it.
24:7 For her blood is in the midst of her; she set it upon the
 top of a rock; she poured it not upon the ground, to cover it
 with dust;
24:8 That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I
 have set her blood upon the top of a rock, that it should not
 be covered.
24:9 Therefore thus saith the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city!
 I will even make the pile for fire great.
24:10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and
 spice it well, and let the bones be burned.
24:11 Then set it empty upon its coals, that the brass of it may
 be hot, and may burn, and [that] the filthiness of it may be
 melted in it, [that] the scum of it may be consumed.
24:12 She hath wearied [herself] with lies, and her great scum
 went not forth out of her: her scum [shall be] in the fire.
24:13 In thy filthiness [is] lewdness: because I have purged
 thee, and thou wast not purged, thou shalt not be purged from
 thy filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest
 upon thee.
24:14 I the LORD have spoken [it]; it shall come to pass, and I
 will do [it]; I will not go back, neither will I spare, neither
 will I repent; according to thy ways, and according to thy
 doings, shall they judge thee, saith the Lord GOD.
24:15 Also the word of the LORD came to me, saying,
24:16 Son of man, behold, I take away from thee the desire of
 thy eyes with a stroke: yet neither shalt thou mourn nor weep,
 neither shall thy tears run down.
24:17 Forbear to cry, make no mourning for the dead, bind the
 tire of thy head upon thee, and put on thy shoes upon thy feet,
 and cover not [thy] lips, and eat not 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, Wilt thou not tell us what
 these [things are] to us, that thou doest [so]?
24:20 Then I answered them, the word of the LORD came to me,
 saying,
24:21 Speak to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD;
 Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellence of your
 strength, the desire of your eyes, and that which your soul
 pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left
 shall fall by the sword.
24:22 And ye shall do as I have done: ye shall not cover [your]
 lips, nor eat the bread of men.
24:23 And your tires [shall be] upon your heads, and your shoes
 upon your feet: ye shall not mourn nor weep; but ye shall pine
 away for your iniquities, and mourn one towards another.
24:24 Thus Ezekiel is to you a sign: according to all that he
 hath done shall ye do: and when this cometh, ye shall know that
 I [am] the Lord GOD.
24:25 Also, thou son of man, [shall 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 minds,
 their sons and their daughters,
24:26 [That] he that escapeth in that day shall come to thee, to
 cause [thee] to hear [it] with [thy] ears?
24:27 In that day shall thy mouth be opened to him who hath
 escaped, and thou shalt speak, and be no more dumb: and thou
 shalt be a sign to them; and they shall know that I [am] the
 LORD.
