Book of Ezekiel Pot of Meat

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.
