PROPHETS
24:6-14
Bring the pot to a boil,
and cook the bones along with the meat.
“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.
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!
So I will splash her blood on a rock
for all to see,
an expression of my anger
and vengeance against her.
“This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
What sorrow awaits Jerusalem,
the city of murderers!
I myself will pile up the fuel beneath her.
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.
Now set the empty pot on the coals.
Heat it red hot!
Burn away the filth and corruption.
But it’s hopeless;
the corruption can’t be cleaned out.
So throw it into the fire.
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.
“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.”
