2"Arise and 1godown to the potter'shouse, and there I will announce My words to you."
Then I wentdown to the potter'shouse, and there he was, makingsomething on the awheel.
But the vessel that he was making of clay was spoiled in the hand of the potter; so he remade it into anothervessel, as it pleased the potter to make.
Then the word of the LORDcame to me saying,
6"Can I not, O house of Israel, deal with you as thispotter does?" declares the LORD. "Behold, like the 2clay in the potter'shand, so are you in My hand, O house of Israel.
