Jeremiah 18

1  The word which came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying,

2  Arise, and go down to the potter's house, and there I will cause thee to hear my words.

3  Then I went down to the potter's house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.

4  And 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.

5  Then the word of the LORD came to me, saying,

6  O 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.

7  At what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to pluck up, and to pull down, and to destroy it;

8  If that nation, against whom I have pronounced, turn from their evil, I will repent of the evil that I thought to do unto them.

9  And at what instant I shall speak concerning a nation, and concerning a kingdom, to build and to plant it;

10  If 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.
