3 Tell this rebellious people a parable and say to them: ‘This is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“‘Put on the cooking pot; put it on and pour water into it.
4 Put into it the pieces of meat, all the choice pieces—the leg and the shoulder.
Fill it with the best of these bones;5 take the pick of the flock.
Pile wood beneath it for the bones; bring it to a boil
and cook the bones in it.6 “‘For this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
“‘Woe to the city of bloodshed, to the pot now encrusted,
whose deposit will not go away! Take the meat out piece by piece
in whatever order it comes.
7 “‘For the blood she shed is in her midst: She poured it on the bare rock;
she did not pour it on the ground, where the dust would cover it.
8 To stir up wrath and take revenge I put her blood on the bare rock,
so that it would not be covered.9 “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign Lord says:
10 So heap on the wood and kindle the fire.
Cook the meat well, mixing in the spices;
and let the bones be charred.11 Then set the empty pot on the coals
till it becomes hot and its copper glows, so that its impurities may be melted
and its deposit burned away.
