The Pot and the Meat

24 The word of the Lord came to me. This was on the tenth day of the tenth month in the ninth year of exile.[a] He said, “Son of man,[b] write today’s date and this note: ‘On this date the army of the king of Babylon surrounded Jerusalem.’ The people there refuse to obey me. I have a story with a message for them. Tell them, ‘This is what the Lord God says:

“‘Put the pot on the fire.
    Put on the pot and pour in the water.


  1. Ezekiel 24:1 ninth year of exile This was Jan. 15, 588 B.C., the date that Nebuchadnezzar began his attack on Jerusalem.
  2. Ezekiel 24:2 Son of man This was usually just a way of saying “a person” or “a human being.” Here, it is a way of addressing Ezekiel. Also in verses 16, 25.
