Son of man, write thee the name of the day, even of this same day: for the King of Babel set himself against Jerusalem this same day.

Therefore speak a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord God, Prepare a [a]pot, prepare it, and also pour water into it.

Gather the [b]pieces thereof into it, even every good piece, as the thigh and the shoulder, and fill it with the chief bones.

  2. Ezekiel 24:4 That is the citizens, and the chief men thereof.
