Burn With Fire

Ezekiel 5:2 wrote:
Thou shalt burne with fire a third part in the midst of the city, when the dayes of the siege are fulfilled, and thou shalt take a third part, and smite about it with a knife, and a third part thou shalt scatter in the winde, and I will draw out a sword after them.


To do that.  Usually, but not always metaphorically.
