The Frummiest Kettle Ever?

I saw this Kettle on sale today. I was somewhat intrigued about the bibilical quote at the top

"And runneing water shall be put into a vessal". The verse seemed incredibly fitting, and exactly what I would want in a kettle. However,  I couldn't quite place the quote , and made a mental note to look it up when I got home.

And so here is the full quote, from Numbers 19:17 -
יז  וְלָקְחוּ, לַטָּמֵא, מֵעֲפַר, שְׂרֵפַת הַחַטָּאת; וְנָתַן עָלָיו מַיִם חַיִּים, אֶל-כֶּלִי.17 And for the unclean they shall take of the ashes of the burning of the purification from sin, and running water shall be put thereto in a vessel.
Well somehow having the ashes of the unclean put into my kettle, made me less than eager to buy it.
