1 Under the parahle of a boiling pot, 6 is shewed the
irrecoverable destruction of Jerusalem. 15 By the
sign of Ezekiel not mourning for the death of his
wife, 19 is shewed the calamity of the Jews to be be-
yond all sorrow.

AGAIN in the ninth year, in the tenth
month, in the tenth day of the month,
the word of the Lord came unto me,

Lord God ; •= Set on a pot, set it on, and also
pour water into it :

4 Gather the pieces thereof into it, even
every good piece, the thigh, and the shoulder ;
fill it with the choice bones.

5 Take 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

611 Wherefore thus saith the Lord God;
Wo 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 upon it.

7 For her blood is in the midst of her;
she set it upon the top of a rock; '"she
poured it not upon the ground, to cover
it with dust;

8 That it might cause fury to come up to
take vengeance ; e I have set her blood upon
the top of a rock, that it should not be

9 Therefore thus saith the Lord God;
''Wo to the bloody city ! I will even make
the pile for fire great.

10 Heap on wood, kindle the fire, con-
sume the flesh, and spice it well, and let the
bones be burned.

11 Then set it empty upon 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

12 She hath wearied herself with lies, and
her great scum went not forth out of her :
her scum shall be in the fire.

13 In thy filthiness is lewdness : because
I have purged thee, and thou wast not purged,
thou shalt not be purged from thy filthiness
any more ""till I have caused my fury to rest
upon thee.

14 'I 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 thy ways, and according
to thy doings, shall they judge thee, saith
the Lord God.

15 HAlso the word of the Lord canre
unto me, saying,

16 Son of man, behold, I take away
from thee the desire of thine eyes with
a stroke : yet neither shalt thou mourn
nor weep, neither shall thy tears frun

17 t Forbear to cry, "make no mourning

the morning as I was commanded.

19 IT And the people said unto me, "^ Wilt
thou not tell us what these things are to us,
that thou doest so? ,

20 Then I answered them. The word of
(he Lord came unto me, saying,

21 Speak unto the house of Israel, Thus
saith the Lord God ; Behold, »I will profane
my sanctuary, the excellency of your strength,
'the desire of your eyes, and fthat which
your soul pitieth; "and your sons and your
daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the

23 And your tires shall he upon your
heads, and your shoes upon your feet: yye
shall not mourn nor weep ; but ^ye shall pine
away for your iniquities, and mourn one to-
ward another.

24 Thus ^Ezekiel is unto you a sign: ac-
cording to all that he hnth done shall ye do :
'•and when this cometh, •'ye shall know that
I am the Lord God.

25 Also, thou son of man, shall it not

stiength, the joy of their glory, the desire
of their eyes, and fthat whereupon they
set their minds, their sons and their daugh-

26 That ^he that escapeth in that day
shall come unto thee, to cause thee to hear it
with thine ears ?

shalt be a sign unto them; and they shall
know that I am the Lord.

1 Tyrus, for insulting against Jerusalem, is threatened.
7 The power of Nebuchadrezzar against her. 15 The
mourning and astonishment of the sea at her fall.

AND it came to pass in the eleventh
year, in the first day of the month, that
.he word of the Lord came unto me, say-

2 Son of man, ''because that Tyrus hath

said against Jerusalem, ''Aha, she 'is broken
that was the gates of the people : she is
turned unto me : I shall be replenished, now
she is laid waste :

3 Therefore thus saith the Lord God ;
Behold, I am against thee, O Tyrus, and
will cause many nations to come up against
thee, as the sea causeth his waves to come up.

4 And they shall destroy the walls of
Tyrus, and break down her towers : I will
also scrape her dust from her, and " make
her like the top of a rock.

■ 5 It shall be a place for the spreading of
nets ^ in the midst of the sea : for I have
spoken it, saith the Lord God : and it shall
become a spoil to the nations.

6 And her daughters which jure in the
field shall be slain by the sword ; ^ and they
shall know that I am the Lord.

7 IT For thus saith the Lord God ; Behold,
I will bring upon Tyrus, Nebuchadrezzar king
of Babylon, ^ a king of kings, from the north,
with horses, and with chariots, and with horse-
men, and companies, and much people.

8 He shall slay with the sword thy daugh-
ters in the field : and he shall & make a fort
against thee, and || cast a mount against thee,
and lift up the buckler against thee.

9 And he shall set engines of war against
thy walls, and with his axes he shall break
down thy towers.

10 By reason of the abundance of his
horses, their dust shall cover thee : thy
walls shall shake at the noise of the horse-
men, and of the wheels, and of the chariots,
when he shall enter into thy gates, f-as men
enter into a city wherein is made a breach.

11 With the hoofs of his horses shall he
tread down all thy streets : he shall slay thy
people by the sword, and thy strong garri-
sons shall go down to the ground.

12 And they shall make a spoil of thy
riches, and make a prey of thy merchan-
dise : and they shall break down thy walls,
and destroy f thy pleasant houses: and they
shall lay thy stones, and thy timber, and thy
dust, in the midst of the water.

15 II Thus saith the Lord God to Tyrus ;
Shall not the isles ' shake at the sound of
thy fall, when the wounded cry, when the
slaughter is made in the midst of thee ?

16 Then all the ""princes of the sea shall
" come down from their thrones, and lay
away their robes, and put oflf their broJ4-
ered garments : they shall clothe themselves
with ftrembhng; "they shall sit upon the
ground, and p shall tremble at every moment, "
and "J be astonished at thee.

17 And they shall take up a 'lamentation
for thee, and say to thee. How art thou
destroyed, that wast inhabited t of seafaring
men, the renowned city, which wast = strong
in the sea, she and her inhabitants, which
cause their terror to be on all that haunt it !

18 Now, shall * the isles tremble in the
day of thy fall; yea, the isles that are in
the sea shall be troubled at thy departure.

19 For thus saith the Lord God ; When
I shall make thee a desolate city, like the
cities that are not inhabited ; when I shall
bring up the deep upon thee, and great
waters shall cover thee ;

20 When I shall bring thee down "with
them that descend into the pit, with the
people of old time, and shall set thee in the
low parts of the earth, in places, desolate
of old, with them that go down to the pit,
that thou be not inhabited ; and I shall set
glory ^in the land of the living ;

shalt be no more : '■ though thou be sought
