Jeremiah 18:1-10 CEBA

God the potter

1 Jeremiah received the LORD's word:

References for Jeremiah 18:1

      2 Go down to the potter's house, and I'll give you instructions about what to do there.
      3 So I went down to the potter's house; he was working on the potter's wheel.
      4 But the piece he was making was flawed while still in his hands, so the potter started on another, as seemed best to him.
      5 Then the LORD's word came to me:
      6 House of Israel, can't I deal with you like this potter, declares the LORD? Like clay in the potter's hand, so are you in mine, house of Israel!
      7 At any time I may announce that I will dig up, pull down, and destroy a nation or kingdom;
      8 but if that nation I warned turns from its evil, then I'll relent and not carry out the harm I intended for it.
      9 At the same time, I may announce that I will build and plant a nation or kingdom;
      10 but if that nation displeases and disobeys me, then I'll relent and not carry out the good I intended for it.
