Jeremiah 18
King James Version

The Potter and the Clay

18The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,H1697H3414H3068H559 2Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.H6965H3381H3335H1004H8085H1697 3Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.H3381H3335H1004H2009H6213H4399H70 4And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter: so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it.H3627H6213H2563H7843H3027H3335H6213H7725H312H3627H5869H3474H3335H6213 5Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,H1697H3068H559 6O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter? saith the LORD. Behold, as the clay is in the potter's hand, so are ye in mine hand, O house of Israel.H1004H3478H3201H6213H3335H5002H3068H2563H3335H3027H3027H1004H3478 7At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;H7281H1696H1471H4467H5428H5422H6 8If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.H1471H1696H7725H7451H5162H7451H2803H6213 9And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;H7281H1696H1471H4467H1129H5193 10If it do evil in my sight, that it obey not my voice, then I will repent of the good, wherewith I said I would benefit them.H6213H7451H5869H8085H6963H5162H2896H559H3190 11Now therefore go to, speak to the men of Judah, and to the inhabitants of Jerusalem, saying, Thus saith the LORD; Behold, I frame evil against you, and devise a device against you: return ye now every one from his evil way, and make your ways and your doings good.H559H376H3063H3427H3389H559H559H3068H3335H7451H2803H4284H7725H376H7451H1870H1870H4611H3190

God’s Warning Rejected

12And they said, There is no hope: but we will walk after our own devices, and we will every one do the imagination of his evil heart.H559H2976H3212H310H4284H376H6213H8307H7451H3820 13Therefore thus saith the LORD; Ask ye now among the heathen, who hath heard such things: the virgin of Israel hath done a very horrible thing.H559H3068H7592H1471H8085H1330H3478H6213H3966H8186 14Will a man leave the snow of Lebanon which cometh from the rock of the field? or shall the cold flowing waters that come from another place be forsaken?H5800H7950H3844H6697H7704H7119H5140H4325H2114H5428 15Because my people hath forgotten me, they have burned incense to vanity, and they have caused them to stumble in their ways from the ancient paths, to walk in paths, in a way not cast up;H5971H7911H6999H7723H3782H1870H5769H7635H7635H3212H5410H1870H5549 16To make their land desolate, and a perpetual hissing; every one that passeth thereby shall be astonished, and wag his head.H7760H776H8047H5769H8292H8292H5674H8074H5110H7218 17I will scatter them as with an east wind before the enemy; I will shew them the back, and not the face, in the day of their calamity.H6327H6921H7307H6440H341H7200H6203H6440H3117H343

Jeremiah Persecuted

18Then said they, Come and let us devise devices against Jeremiah; for the law shall not perish from the priest, nor counsel from the wise, nor the word from the prophet. Come, and let us smite him with the tongue, and let us not give heed to any of his words.H559H3212H2803H4284H3414H8451H6H3548H6098H2450H1697H5030H3212H5221H3956H7181H1697 19Give heed to me, O LORD, and hearken to the voice of them that contend with me.H7181H3068H8085H6963H3401 20Shall evil be recompensed for good? for they have digged a pit for my soul. Remember that I stood before thee to speak good for them, and to turn away thy wrath from them.H7451H7999H2896H3738H7745H5315H2142H5975H6440H1696H2896H7725H2534 21Therefore deliver up their children to the famine, and pour out their blood by the force of the sword; and let their wives be bereaved of their children, and be widows; and let their men be put to death; let their young men be slain by the sword in battle.H5414H1121H7458H5064H3027H2719H802H7909H490H582H2026H4194H970H5221H2719H4421 22Let a cry be heard from their houses, when thou shalt bring a troop suddenly upon them: for they have digged a pit to take me, and hid snares for my feet.H2201H8085H1004H935H1416H6597H3738H7745H7882H3920H2934H6341H7272 23Yet, LORD, thou knowest all their counsel against me to slay me: forgive not their iniquity, neither blot out their sin from thy sight, but let them be overthrown before thee; deal thus with them in the time of thine anger.H3068H3045H6098H4194H3722H5771H4229H2403H6440H3782H6440H6213H6256H639
