Ezekiel 11:3 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

They are saying, “No need to build houses! The city is the pot, and we are the meat.”[a]

Footnotes:

  1. 11:3 No need to build houses…meat: this advice is based on the conviction that invincible Jerusalem will protect its citizens from further danger just as a pot shields the meat inside from the fire. The poorer citizens of Jerusalem and the refugees from nearby villages can now appropriate the property abandoned by the city’s wealthier upper class when they were deported (v. 15). The metaphor of the pot and its contents reappears in chap. 24.
