24:1 Again in the ninth [H8671] year [H8141] , in the tenth [H6224] month [H2320] , in the tenth [H6218] [day] of the month [H2320] , the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
24:2 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , write [H3789] thee the name [H8034] of the day [H3117] , [even] of this same [H6106] day [H3117] : the king [H4428] of Babylon [H894] set [H5564] himself against Jerusalem [H3389] this same [H6106] day [H3117] .
24:3 And utter [H4911] a parable [H4912] unto the rebellious [H4805] house [H1004] , and say [H559] unto them, Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Set on [H8239] a pot [H5518] , set [it] on [H8239] , and also pour [H3332] water [H4325] into it:
24:4 Gather [H622] the pieces [H5409] thereof into it, [even] every good [H2896] piece [H5409] , the thigh [H3409] , and the shoulder [H3802] ; fill [H4390] [it] with the choice [H4005] bones [H6106] .
24:5 Take [H3947] the choice [H4005] of the flock [H6629] , and burn [H1754] also the bones [H6106] under it, [and] make it boil [H7570] well [H7571] , and let them seethe [H1310] the bones [H6106] of it therein [H8432] .(burn: or, heap)
24:6 Wherefore thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Woe [H188] to the bloody [H1818] city [H5892] , to the pot [H5518] whose scum [H2457] [is] therein, and whose scum [H2457] is not gone out [H3318] of it! bring it out [H3318] piece [H5409] by piece [H5409] ; let no lot [H1486] fall [H5307] upon it.
24:7 For her blood [H1818] is in the midst [H8432] of her; she set [H7760] it upon the top [H6706] of a rock [H5553] ; she poured [H8210] it not upon the ground [H776] , to cover [H3680] it with dust [H6083] ;
24:8 That it might cause fury [H2534] to come up [H5927] to take [H5358] vengeance [H5359] ; I have set [H5414] her blood [H1818] upon the top [H6706] of a rock [H5553] , that it should not be covered [H3680] .
24:9 Therefore thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Woe [H188] to the bloody [H1818] city [H5892] ! I will even make the pile [H4071] for fire great [H1431] .
24:10 Heap [H7235] on wood [H6086] , kindle [H1814] the fire [H784] , consume [H8552] the flesh [H1320] , and spice [H7543] it well [H4841] , and let the bones [H6106] be burned [H2787] .
24:11 Then set [H5975] it empty [H7386] upon the coals [H1513] thereof, that the brass [H5178] of it may be hot [H3179] , and may burn [H2787] , and [that] the filthiness [H2932] of it may be molten [H5413] in it [H8432] , [that] the scum [H2457] of it may be consumed [H8552] .
24:12 She hath wearied [H3811] [herself] with lies [H8383] , and her great [H7227] scum [H2457] went not forth [H3318] out of her: her scum [H2457] [shall be] in the fire [H784] .
24:13 In thy filthiness [H2932] [is] lewdness [H2154] : because I have purged [H2891] thee, and thou wast not purged [H2891] , thou shalt not be purged [H2891] from thy filthiness [H2932] any more, till I have caused my fury [H2534] to rest [H5117] upon thee.
24:14 I the LORD [H3068] have spoken [H1696] [it]: it shall come to pass [H935] , and I will do [H6213] [it]; I will not go back [H6544] , neither will I spare [H2347] , neither will I repent [H5162] ; according to thy ways [H1870] , and according to thy doings [H5949] , shall they judge [H8199] thee, saith [H5002] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
24:15 Also the word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
24:16 Son [H1121] of man [H120] , behold, I take away [H3947] from thee the desire [H4261] of thine eyes [H5869] with a stroke [H4046] : yet neither shalt thou mourn [H5594] nor weep [H1058] , neither shall thy tears [H1832] run down [H935] .(run down: Heb. go)
24:17 Forbear [H1826] to cry [H602] , make [H6213] no mourning [H60] for the dead [H4191] , bind [H2280] the tire of thine head [H6287] upon thee, and put on [H7760] thy shoes [H5275] upon thy feet [H7272] , and cover [H5844] not [thy] lips [H8222] , and eat [H398] not the bread [H3899] of men [H582] .(Forbear: Heb. Be silent)(lips: Heb. upper lip)
24:18 So I spake [H1696] unto the people [H5971] in the morning [H1242] : and at even [H6153] my wife [H802] died [H4191] ; and I did [H6213] in the morning [H1242] as I was commanded [H6680] .
24:19 And the people [H5971] said [H559] unto me, Wilt thou not tell [H5046] us what these [things are] to us, that thou doest [H6213] [so]?
24:20 Then I answered [H559] them, The word [H1697] of the LORD [H3068] came unto me, saying [H559] ,
24:21 Speak [H559] unto the house [H1004] of Israel [H3478] , Thus saith [H559] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] ; Behold, I will profane [H2490] my sanctuary [H4720] , the excellency [H1347] of your strength [H5797] , the desire [H4261] of your eyes [H5869] , and that which your soul [H5315] pitieth [H4263] ; and your sons [H1121] and your daughters [H1323] whom ye have left [H5800] shall fall [H5307] by the sword [H2719] .(that: Heb. the pity of your soul)
24:22 And ye shall do [H6213] as I have done [H6213] : ye shall not cover [H5844] [your] lips [H8222] , nor eat [H398] the bread [H3899] of men [H582] .
24:23 And your tires [H6287] [shall be] upon your heads [H7218] , and your shoes [H5275] upon your feet [H7272] : ye shall not mourn [H5594] nor weep [H1058] ; but ye shall pine away [H4743] for your iniquities [H5771] , and mourn [H5098] one [H376] toward another [H251] .
24:24 Thus Ezekiel [H3168] is unto you a sign [H4159] : according to all that he hath done [H6213] shall ye do [H6213] : and when this cometh [H935] , ye shall know [H3045] that I [am] the Lord [H136] GOD [H3069] .
24:25 Also, thou son [H1121] of man [H120] , [shall it] not [be] in the day [H3117] when I take [H3947] from them their strength [H4581] , the joy [H4885] of their glory [H8597] , the desire [H4261] of their eyes [H5869] , and that whereupon they set [H4853] their minds [H5315] , their sons [H1121] and their daughters [H1323] ,(that: Heb. the lifting up of their soul)
24:26 [That] he that escapeth [H6412] in that day [H3117] shall come [H935] unto thee, to cause [thee] to hear [H2045] [it] with [thine] ears [H241] ?
24:27 In that day [H3117] shall thy mouth [H6310] be opened [H6605] to him which is escaped [H6412] , and thou shalt speak [H1696] , and be no more dumb [H481] : and thou shalt be a sign [H4159] unto them; and they shall know [H3045] that I [am] the LORD [H3068] .
