The word which came to Jeremiah from
the Lord saying, “Arise and go down to the potter’s house, and
there I will announce My words to you.” Then I went down to the
potter’s house, and there he was, making something on the wheel.
But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the
hand of the potter; so he remade it into another vessel, as it
pleased the potter to make. Then the word of the Lord came to me
saying, “Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this
potter does?” declares the Lord. “Behold, like the clay in the
potter’s hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.
