The rusted pot (Ezek 24:6-24:6)

“Therefore,

Thus says Yahweh God!

‘Woe to the bloody city!

Woe to the pot

Where rust is

In it!

This rust

Has not gone out

Of it!

Empty it

Piece by piece!

Do not make

Any choice!’”

Now Yahweh, via Ezekiel, called Jerusalem a bloody city. He compared it to a rusted pot. The rust was in this pot, Jerusalem, but it has not gone out of it. They would have to empty it piece by piece to get rid of this rust. They had no choice but to get rid of everything and everyone in the pot.
