The Potters Wheel

Jeremiah 18:1-11
Contemporary English Version (CEV)
Jeremiah Goes to the Pottery Shop

18 The Lord told me, 2 “Go to the pottery shop, and when you get there, I will tell you what to say to the people.”

3 I went there and saw the potter making clay pots on his pottery wheel. 4 And whenever the clay would not take the shape he wanted, he would change his mind and form it into some other shape.

5 Then the Lord told me to say:

6 People of Israel, I, the Lord, have power over you, just as a potter has power over clay. 7 If I threaten to uproot and shatter an evil nation 8 and that nation turns from its evil, I will change my mind.

9 If I promise to make a nation strong, 10 but its people start disobeying me and doing evil, then I will change my mind and not help them at all.

11 So listen to me, people of Judah and Jerusalem! I have decided to strike you with disaster, and I won’t change my mind unless you stop sinning and start living right
