And utter a parable unto the rebellious house, and say unto them, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Set on a pot, set it on, and also pour water into it:
Son of man Put thou forth a riddle And speak thou a parable,- Unto the house of Israel:
and thou shalt say - How was thy mother a lioness, Between lions, she lay down,- I n the midst of young lions, She nourished her whelps;
Then said I, Ah! My Lord Yahweh: They are saying of me, Is not he a putter forth of parables?
I will open, in a parable, my mouth, I will pour forth enigmas out of antiquity; -
In that day, shall one take up against you a by-word, and lament a lamentable lamentation, saying - we are made, utterly desolate, the portion of my people, he passeth to others, - How doth he set me aside! To an apostate, our fields, doth he apportion.
And they were seeking, to secure, him, - and were in fear of the multitude; for they perceived that, against them, the parable he had spoken. And, leaving him, they departed.
And, he, said - Unto you, hath it been given, to get to know the sacred secrets of the kingdom of God; but, unto the rest, in parables, - in order that, seeing, they may not see, and, hearing, they may not understand.
And he said unto me- Son of man I am sending thee unto the sons of Israel, unto rebellious nations, which have rebelled against me, - they, and their fathers have transgressed against me, until this very day;
As an adamant harder than flint, have I made thy forehead, - thou shalt not fear them neither shalt thou be dismayed at their faces, For a perverse house, they are!
Son of man. In the midst of a perverse house, dost thou dwell, - Who have eyes to see - and have not seen. Ears have they to hear - and have no heard, For a perverse house, they are.
Say, I pray thee unto the perverse house, Know ye not what these things are? Say thou Lo! the King of Babylon entered Jerusalem And took her king and her princes, And brought them unto him in Babylon;
Hear O heavens, And give ear, O earth, for Yahweh, hath spoken: - Sons, have I brought up, and advanced, And, they, have rebelled against me.
Alas! for sons who are rebellious, Declareth Yahweh. Executing a purpose, but not from me, And pouring out a libation but not from my spirit, - That they may add sin to sin:
But, they, rebelled, and grieved his Holy Spirit, - And so he turned against them as an enemy, he himself, fought against them.
Ye stiff-necked and uncircumcised in hearts and in ears, ye, always, against the Holy Spirit, do strive! As your fathers, ye also:
Wherefore, Thus saith My Lord Yahweh, Woe! city of bloodshed. The caldron whose scum is in it, and whose scum, hath not gone out of it: Piece by piece, bring it out, There hath fallen thereon no lot.
who are saying, Not near! let us build houses, - It, is the caldron, and, we, are the flesh!
Because of the vexation of Yahweh, she shall not be inhabited, But Shall become a complete desolation, - Every one passing by Babylon, shall be astonished and hiss, over all her plagues.
