Jeremiah 18
English Standard Version
18The word that came to Jeremiah from the LORD:H1697H3414H3068H559 2"Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will let you hear my words."H6965H3381H3335H1004H8085H1697 3So I went down to the potter's house, and there he was working at his wheel.H3381H3335H1004H2009H6213H4399H70 4And the vessel he was making of clay was spoiled in the potter's hand, and he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.H3627H6213H2563H7843H3027H3335H6213H7725H312H3627H5869H3474H3335H6213 5Then the word of the LORD came to me:H1697H3068H559 6"O house of Israel, can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the LORD. Behold, like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.H1004H3478H3201H6213H3335H5002H3068H2563H3335H3027H3027H1004H3478 7If at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom, that I will pluck up and break down and destroy it,H7281H1696H1471H4467H5428H5422H6 8and if that nation, concerning which I have spoken, turns from its evil, I will relent of the disaster that I intended to do to it.H1471H1696H7725H7451H5162H7451H2803H6213 9And if at any time I declare concerning a nation or a kingdom that I will build and plant it,H7281H1696H1471H4467H1129H5193 10and if it does evil in my sight, not listening to my voice, then I will relent of the good that I had intended to do to it.H6213H7451H5869H8085H6963H5162H2896H559H3190 11Now, therefore, say to the men of Judah and the inhabitants of Jerusalem: 'Thus says the LORD, Behold, I am shaping disaster against you and devising a plan against you. Return, every one from his evil way, and amend your ways and your deeds.'H559H376H3063H3427H3389H559H559H3068H3335H7451H2803H4284H7725H376H7451H1870H1870H4611H3190 12"But they say, 'That is in vain! We will follow our own plans, and will every one act according to the stubbornness of his evil heart.'H559H2976H3212H310H4284H376H6213H8307H7451H3820 13"Therefore thus says the LORD: Ask among the nations, Who has heard the like of this? The virgin Israel has done a very horrible thing.H559H3068H7592H1471H8085H1330H3478H6213H3966H8186 14Does the snow of Lebanon leave the crags of Sirion? Do the mountain waters run dry, the cold flowing streams?H5800H7950H3844H6697H7704H7119H5140H4325H2114H5428 15But my people have forgotten me; they make offerings to false gods; they made them stumble in their ways, in the ancient roads, and to walk into side roads, not the highway,H5971H7911H6999H7723H3782H1870H5769H7635H7635H3212H5410H1870H5549 16making their land a horror, a thing to be hissed at forever. Everyone who passes by it is horrified and shakes his head.H7760H776H8047H5769H8292H8292H5674H8074H5110H7218 17Like the east wind I will scatter them before the enemy. I will show them my back, not my face, in the day of their calamity."H6327H6921H7307H6440H341H7200H6203H6440H3117H343 18Then they said, "Come, let us make plots against Jeremiah, for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, let us strike him with the tongue, and let us not pay attention to any of his words."H559H3212H2803H4284H3414H8451H6H3548H6098H2450H1697H5030H3212H5221H3956H7181H1697 19Hear me, O LORD, and listen to the voice of my adversaries.H7181H3068H8085H6963H3401 20Should good be repaid with evil? Yet they have dug a pit for my life. Remember how I stood before you to speak good for them, to turn away your wrath from them.H7451H7999H2896H3738H7745H5315H2142H5975H6440H1696H2896H7725H2534 21Therefore deliver up their children to famine; give them over to the power of the sword; let their wives become childless and widowed. May their men meet death by pestilence, their youths be struck down by the sword in battle.H5414H1121H7458H5064H3027H2719H802H7909H490H582H2026H4194H970H5221H2719H4421 22May a cry be heard from their houses, when you bring the plunderer suddenly upon them! For they have dug a pit to take me and laid snares for my feet.H2201H8085H1004H935H1416H6597H3738H7745H7882H3920H2934H6341H7272 23Yet you, O LORD, know all their plotting to kill me. Forgive not their iniquity, nor blot out their sin from your sight. Let them be overthrown before you; deal with them in the time of your anger.H3068H3045H6098H4194H3722H5771H4229H2403H6440H3782H6440H6213H6256H639
