    in whatever order it comes.

    'For this is what the Sovereign LORD says: "'Woe to the city of bloodshed, to the pot now encrusted, whose deposit will not go away! Take the meat out piece by piece in whatever order it comes. (Ezekiel 24:6; New International Version)

    What does the expression in whatever order it comes mean? How should I analyze the structure of that expression?
    I need native speakers' help.

    Re: in whatever order it comes.

    It's not an expression. It's just the order the words come in.

    It could have been written, 'whatever order it comes in' or, 'whatever order they (the pieces of meat) come in'.
