They say, 'Haven't our houses been recently rebuilt? This city is a pot, and we are the meat in it.'
King James Bible
Which say, It is not near; let us build houses: this city is the caldron, and we be the flesh.
American Standard Version
that say, The time is not near to build houses: this city is the caldron, and we are the flesh.
Young's Literal Translation
who are saying, It is not near -- to build houses, it is the pot, and we the flesh.
Ezekiel 11:3 Additional TranslationsClarke's Commentary on the Bible
It is not near - That is, the threatened invasion.
This city is the caldron, and we be the flesh - See the vision of the seething pot, Jeremiah 1:13. These infidels seem to say: "We will run all risks, we will abide in the city. Though it be the caldron, and we the flesh, yet we will share its fate: if it perish, we will perish with it." Or they may allude to the above prediction of Jeremiah, in order to ridicule it: "We were to have been boiled long ago: but the fulfillment of that prediction is not near yet."
