The Potter and the Clay

1 The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD saying, 2 "Arise and 1go down to the potter's house, and there I will announce My words to you." 3 Then I went down to the potter's house, and there he was, making something on the awheel. 4 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. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me saying, 6 "Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as this potter does?" declares the LORD. "Behold, like the 2clay in the potter's hand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel. 7 "At one moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to 3uproot, to pull down, or to destroy it; 8 4if that nation against which I have spoken turns from its evil, I will b5relent concerning the calamity I planned to bring on it. 9 "Or at another moment I might speak concerning a nation or concerning a kingdom to 6build up or to plant it; 10 if it does 7evil in My sight by not obeying My voice, then I will c8think better of the good with which I had promised to dbless it.
