The filthy rust remained (Ezek 24:12-24:13)

“In vain,

I have wearied myself.

Its thick rust

Does not depart

By the fire.

Yet,

When I cleansed you

In your filthy lewdness,

You did not become clean

From your filth.

You shall not again

Be cleansed

Until I have satisfied

My fury

Upon you.”

Yahweh, via Ezekiel, was upset that the thick rust did not leave the pot, even with all the burning fire. Yahweh had tried to cleanse them of their filthy lewdness, but they did not come clean from this dirt. Yahweh then said that he was not going to clean them again until his fury was satisfied.
