18 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: “Arise, and go down to (A)the potter's house, and there I will let you hear[a] my words.” So I went down to (B)the potter's house, and there he was working at his wheel. And the vessel he was making of clay was (C)spoiled in the potter's hand, and (D)he reworked it into another vessel, as it seemed good to the potter to do.

Then the word of the Lord came to me: “O house of Israel, (E)can I not do with you as this potter has done? declares the Lord. (F)Behold, like the clay in the potter's hand, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
