Jeremiah 18:1-11

CEB 1 Jeremiah received the LORD's word: NRS 1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: CEB 2 Go down to the potter's house, and I'll give you instructions about what to do there. NRS 2 "Come, go down to the potter's house, and there I will let you hear my words." CEB 3 So I went down to the potter's house; he was working on the potter's wheel. NRS 3 So I went down to the potter's house, and there he was working at his wheel. CEB 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. NRS 4 The vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter's hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as seemed good to him. CEB 5 Then the LORD's word came to me: NRS 5 Then the word of the Lord came to me: CEB 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! NRS 6 Can I not do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done? says the Lord. Just like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel. CEB 7 At any time I may announce that I will dig up, pull down, and destroy a nation or kingdom; NRS 7 At one moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it, CEB 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. NRS 8 but if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will change my mind about the disaster that I intended to bring on it. CEB 9 At the same time, I may announce that I will build and plant a nation or kingdom; NRS 9 And at another moment I may declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it, CEB 10 but if that nation displeases and disobeys me, then I'll relent and not carry out the good I intended for it. NRS 10 but if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will change my mind about the good that I had intended to do to it. CEB 11 Now say to the people of Judah and those living in Jerusalem: This is what the LORD says: I am a potter preparing a disaster for you; I'm working out a plan against you. So each one of you, turn from your evil ways; reform your ways and your actions. NRS 11 Now, therefore, say to the people of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: Thus says the Lord: Look, I am a potter shaping evil against you and devising a plan against you. Turn now, all of you from your evil way, and amend your ways and your doings.
