Ezekiel 22:18-22

NSB(i) 18 »Son of man, the house of Israel has become dross to me. All of them are the copper, tin, iron and lead in the furnace. They are the dross of silver. 19 »Therefore, the Lord Jehovah says: ‘I am going to gather you into Jerusalem. This is because all of you have become dross (impure) (worthless). 20 ‘»As they gather silver and copper and iron and lead and tin into the furnace to blow fire on it in order to melt it, so I will gather you in my anger and in my wrath and I will lay you there and melt (liquefy) you. 21 ‘»I will gather you and blow on you with the fire of my wrath. You will be melted in the midst of it. 22 ‘»As silver is melted in the furnace, you will be melted in the midst of her. You will know that I, Jehovah, have poured out my wrath on you.«’
