Pot of Meat

God explains to the citizens of Jerusalem that they're not the pot of meat they thought they were, hiding comfortably in the slow-cooker with their veggie friends.

You shall fall by the sword; I will judge you at the border of Israel. And you shall know that I am the Lord. This city shall not be your pot, and you shall not be the meat inside it; I will judge you at the border of Israel. (11:10-11)

Now you might've thought it would've been a bad thing to be a pot of meat. It doesn't sound particularly pleasant considering what usually happens to meat in a pot. But in this case, God is saying that the people aren't like meat safely protected from the outside world by a pot. They'll be destroyed or exiled in the end. Only dead bodies littering the streets of Jerusalem will be like meat in the pot.
