1 In the ninth year, on the tenth day of the tenth month, the word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
Ezek 8:1 Ezek 20:1 2Kgs 24:12 Ezek 1:2 Ezek 26:1 Ezek 29:1 Ezek 29:17
2 'Son of man, write down today's date, yes, today's, for this very day the king of Babylon began his attack on Jerusalem.
2Kgs 25:1 Jer 39:1 Jer 52:4 Hab 2:2-3 Isa 8:1 Isa 30:8-9
3 So pronounce a parable for this tribe of rebels. Say, "The Lord Yahweh says this: Put the pot on the fire; put it on; pour the water in!
Ezek 11:3 Ezek 17:2 Ezek 20:49 Ezek 2:3 Ezek 2:6 Isa 1:2 Ezek 2:8
4 Now put the cuts of meat all in together, all the best cuts, leg and shoulder. Fill it with the best bones.
Mic 3:2-3 Ezek 22:18-22 Matt 7:2
5 Take the best of the flock, then heap wood underneath; boil it thoroughly until even the bones are cooked.
Jer 52:10 Jer 52:24-27 Jer 39:6 Ezek 20:47 Ezek 24:9-10 Ezek 34:16-17 Ezek 34:20
6 "For the Lord Yahweh says this: Disaster is in store for the bloody city, for that rusty cooking pot whose rust will not come off! Empty it, bit by bit, not bothering to draw lots;
Ezek 22:2 Nah 3:1 2Kgs 24:4 Ezek 22:27 Mic 7:2 Nah 3:10 Obad 1:11
7 for she is still full of bloodshed, she has put blood on the naked rock; she did not pour it on the ground so as to cover it with dust.
Lev 17:13 Deut 12:16 Deut 12:24 1Kgs 21:19 Isa 3:9 Isa 26:21 Jer 2:34
8 To make anger rise, to exact vengeance, I have put her blood on the naked rock, so that it should not be covered:
Deut 32:21-22 1Cor 4:5 2Chr 34:25 2Chr 36:16-17 2Kgs 22:17 Deut 29:22-28 Ezek 5:13
9 "So, the Lord Yahweh says this: Disaster is in store for the bloody city! I too plan to build a great fire.
Ezek 24:6 Hab 2:12 Isa 30:33 2Pet 3:7-12 2Thess 1:8 Ezek 22:19-22 Ezek 22:31
10 Heap on the wood, light it, cook the meat, prepare the seasoning let the bones burn!
Jer 17:3 Jer 20:5 Lam 1:10 Lam 2:16
11 Put the empty pot on the coals to make it hot, until the bronze glows, the filth inside melts and the rust is burnt away!
Jer 21:10 Mal 4:1 1Cor 3:12-13 Ezek 20:38 Ezek 22:15-23 Ezek 23:26-27 Ezek 23:47-48
12 "But all that rust would not come off in the fire.
Jer 9:5 Dan 9:13-14 Hab 2:13 Jer 2:13 Jer 5:3 Jer 51:58 Ezek 24:6
13 Your filth is infamous. Since I have tried to purge you and you would not let yourself be purged of your filth, so now you will never be purged of your filth until I have sated my anger on you.
Ezek 5:13 Ezek 22:24 Ezek 8:18 Ezek 16:42 2Cor 7:1 Ezek 24:11 Hos 7:1
14 I, Yahweh, have spoken; this will happen; I shall act and not relent; I shall show no pity, no compassion. You will be judged as your conduct and actions deserve -- declares the Lord Yahweh." '
Ezek 18:30 1Sam 15:29 Ezek 5:11 Ezek 9:10 Isa 3:11 Isa 55:11 Jer 13:14
15 The word of Yahweh was addressed to me as follows,
16 'Son of man, at a blow I am about to deprive you of the delight of your eyes. But you are not to lament, not to weep, not to let your tears run down.
Jer 13:17 Jer 22:10 Ezek 24:18 Song 7:10 1Thess 4:13 Ezek 24:21-25 Jer 9:1
17 Groan in silence, do not go into mourning for the dead, knot your turban round your head, put your sandals on your feet, do not cover your beard, do not eat the usual food.'
Hos 9:4 2Sam 15:30 Lev 10:6 Lev 21:10 Amos 8:3 Ezek 24:22-23 Hab 2:20
18 I told this to the people in the morning, and my wife died in the evening, and the next morning I did as I had been ordered.
19 The people then said to me, 'Will you not explain what meaning these actions have for us?'
Ezek 12:9 Ezek 37:18 Ezek 17:12 Ezek 20:49 Ezek 21:7 Mal 3:7-8 Mal 3:13
20 I replied, 'The word of Yahweh has been addressed to me as follows,
21 "Say to the House of Israel, the Lord Yahweh says this: I am about to profane my sanctuary, the pride of your strength, the delight of your eyes, the joy of your hearts. Your sons and daughters whom you have left behind will fall by the sword.
Ezek 23:47 Ezek 23:25 Jer 7:14 Ps 27:4 Ezek 24:16 Jer 6:11 Jer 16:3-4
22 Then you will do as I have done: you will not cover your beards or eat the usual food;
Amos 6:9-10 Ezek 24:16-17 Jer 16:4-7 Jer 47:3 Job 27:15 Ps 78:64
23 you will keep your turbans on your heads and your sandals on your feet; you will not lament or weep but will waste away for your crimes, groaning among yourselves.
Ezek 4:17 Ezek 33:10 Lev 26:39 Isa 59:11 Job 27:15 Ps 78:64
24 Thus Ezekiel is a sign for you. You will do exactly what he has done. And when this happens, you will know that I am Lord Yahweh!"
Ezek 4:3 Ezek 6:7 Ezek 12:11 Isa 20:3 Luke 11:29-30 1Sam 10:2-7 Ezek 7:9
25 'And, son of man, the day that I deprive them of their strength, their crowning joy, the delight of their eyes, the joy of their hearts, their sons and daughters,
Ezek 24:21 Jer 11:22 Ps 48:2 Ps 50:2 Deut 28:32 Jer 7:4 Jer 52:10
26 that day a survivor will bring you the news.
Job 1:15-19 Ezek 33:21-22 1Sam 4:12-18
27 That day your mouth will be opened to speak to the survivor; you will speak and no longer be dumb; you will be a sign for them, and they will know that I am Yahweh.'
Ezek 33:22 Ezek 3:26-27 Ezek 29:21 Eph 6:19 Exod 6:11-12 Luke 21:15 Ps 51:15
