Context
The Parable of the Cooking Pot

1Again in the ninth year, in the tenth month, in the tenth day of the month, the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 2Son of man, write you the name of the day, even of this same day: the king of Babylon set himself against Jerusalem this same day. 3And utter a parable to the rebellious house, and say to them, Thus said the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it: 4Gather the pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder; fill it with the choice bones. 5Take the choice of the flock, and burn also the bones under it, and make it boil well, and let them seethe the bones of it therein. 6Why thus said 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 on it. 7For her blood is in the middle of her; she set it on the top of a rock; she poured it not on the ground, to cover it with dust; 8That it might cause fury to come up to take vengeance; I have set her blood on the top of a rock, that it should not be covered. 9Therefore thus said the Lord GOD; Woe to the bloody city! I will even make the pile for fire great. 10Heap on wood, kindle the fire, consume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the bones be burned. 11Then set it empty on the coals thereof, that the brass of it may be hot, and may burn, and that the filthiness of it may be molten in it, that the scum of it may be consumed. 12She has wearied herself with lies, and her great scum went not forth out of her: her scum shall be in the fire. 13In your filthiness is lewdness: because I have purged you, and you were not purged, you shall not be purged from your filthiness any more, till I have caused my fury to rest on you. 14I 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 your ways, and according to your doings, shall they judge you, said the Lord GOD.
