Jeremiah 18:1-11 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

At the Potter's House

1 This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD: 2 "Go down to the potter's house, and there I will give you my message." 3 So I went down to the potter's house, and I saw him working at the wheel. 4 But the pot he was shaping from the clay was marred in his hands; so the potter formed it into another pot, shaping it as seemed best to him. 5 Then the word of the LORD came to me: 6 "O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter does?" declares the LORD. "Like clay1 in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand,2 O house of Israel. 7 If at any time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be uprooted,3 torn down and destroyed, 8 and if that nation I warned repents of its evil, then I will relent4 and not inflict on it the disaster5 I had planned. 9 And if at another time I announce that a nation or kingdom is to be built6 up and planted, 10 and if it does evil7 in my sight and does not obey me, then I will reconsider8 the good I had intended to do for it.9 11 "Now therefore say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem, 'This is what the LORD says: Look! I am preparing a disaster10 for you and devising a plan11 against you. So turn12 from your evil ways,13 each one of you, and reform your ways and your actions.'14
