In order to stir up my anger and in order to take vengeance, I set the blood on a bare rock so that it cannot be covered.'

Mix the seasonings. Burn those bones to a crisp! Make the pot stand empty on the coals until its bronze glows red, its rust can be scoured off, and its dross completely removed. The pot wearies me, but its thick rust won't come off, even with fire. There is wickedness in your obscene conduct. Even though I've cleansed you, you uncleanness cannot be washed away. You cannot be cleansed again until my rage against you has subsided.' ""I, the LORD have spoken. It will happen, because I'm going to do it. I won't hold back, have compassion, or change my mind.
