Jeremiah 18

The word
<01697>
which came to Jeremiah
<03414>
from the LORD
<03068>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Arise
<06965> (8798)_,
and go down
<03381> (8804)
to the potter's
<03335> (8802)
house
<01004>_,
and there I will cause thee to hear
<08085> (8686)
my words
<01697>_.
Then I went down
<03381> (8799)
to the potter's
<03335> (8802)
house
<01004>_,
and, behold
<02009>_,
he wrought
<06213> (8802)
a work
<04399>
on the wheels
<070>_.
{wheels: or, frames, or, seats}
And the vessel
<03627>
that he made
<06213> (8802)
of clay
<02563>
was marred
<07843> (8738)
in the hand
<03027>
of the potter
<03335> (8802)_:
so he made
<06213> (8799)
it again
<07725> (8804)
another
<0312>
vessel
<03627>_,
as seemed
<05869>
good
<03474> (8804)
to the potter
<03335> (8802)
to make
<06213> (8800)
[it]. {of clay...: or, was marred, as clay in the hand of the potter} {made it...: Heb. returned and made, etc}
Then the word
<01697>
of the LORD
<03068>
came to me, saying
<0559> (8800)_,
O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_,
cannot
<03201> (8799)
I do
<06213> (8800)
with you as this potter
<03335> (8802)_?
saith
<05002> (8803)
the LORD
<03068>_.
Behold, as the clay
<02563>
[is] in the potter's
<03335> (8802)
hand
<03027>_,
so [are] ye in mine hand
<03027>_,
O house
<01004>
of Israel
<03478>_.
[At what] instant
<07281>
I shall speak
<01696> (8762)
concerning a nation
<01471>_,
and concerning a kingdom
<04467>_,
to pluck up
<05428> (8800)_,
and to pull down
<05422> (8800)_,
and to destroy
<06> (8687)
[it];
If that nation
<01471>_,
against whom I have pronounced
<01696> (8765)_,
turn
<07725> (8804)
from their evil
<07451>_,
I will repent
<05162> (8738)
of the evil
<07451>
that I thought
<02803> (8804)
to do
<06213> (8800)
unto them.
And [at what] instant
<07281>
I shall speak
<01696> (8762)
concerning a nation
<01471>_,
and concerning a kingdom
<04467>_,
to build
<01129> (8800)
and to plant
<05193> (8800)
[it];
If it do
<06213> (8804)
evil
<07451>
in my sight
<05869>_,
that it obey
<08085> (8800)
not my voice
<06963>_,
then I will repent
<05162> (8738)
of the good
<02896>_,
wherewith I said
<0559> (8804)
I would benefit
<03190> (8687)
them.
Now therefore go to, speak
<0559> (8798)
to the men
<0376>
of Judah
<03063>_,
and to the inhabitants
<03427> (8802)
of Jerusalem
<03389>_,
saying
<0559> (8800)_,
Thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Behold, I frame
<03335> (8802)
evil
<07451>
against you, and devise
<02803> (8802)
a device
<04284>
against you: return
<07725> (8798)
ye now every one
<0376>
from his evil
<07451>
way
<01870>_,
and make your ways
<01870>
and your doings
<04611>
good
<03190> (8685)_.
And they said
<0559> (8804)_,
There is no hope
<02976> (8737)_:
but we will walk
<03212> (8799)
after
<0310>
our own devices
<04284>_,
and we will every one
<0376>
do
<06213> (8799)
the imagination
<08307>
of his evil
<07451>
heart
<03820>_.
Therefore thus saith
<0559> (8804)
the LORD
<03068>_;
Ask
<07592> (8798)
ye now among the heathen
<01471>_,
who hath heard
<08085> (8804)
such things: the virgin
<01330>
of Israel
<03478>
hath done
<06213> (8804)
a very
<03966>
horrible thing
<08186>_.
Will [a man] leave
<05800> (8799)
the snow
<07950>
of Lebanon
<03844>
[which cometh] from the rock
<06697>
of the field
<07704>_?
[or] shall the cold
<07119>
flowing
<05140> (8802)
waters
<04325>
that come from another place
<02114> (8801)
be forsaken
<05428> (8735)_?
{the snow...: or, my fields for a rock, or for the snow of Lebanon? shall the running waters be forsaken for the strange cold waters?}
Because my people
<05971>
hath forgotten
<07911> (8804)
me, they have burned incense
<06999> (8762)
to vanity
<07723>_,
and they have caused them to stumble
<03782> (8686)
in their ways
<01870>
[from] the ancient
<05769>
paths
<07635> (8675) <07635>_,
to walk
<03212> (8800)
in paths
<05410>_,
[in] a way
<01870>
not cast up
<05549> (8803)_;
To make
<07760> (8800)
their land
<0776>
desolate
<08047>_,
[and] a perpetual
<05769>
hissing
<08292> (8675) <08292>_;
every one that passeth
<05674> (8802)
thereby shall be astonished
<08074> (8799)_,
and wag
<05110> (8686)
his head
<07218>_.
I will scatter
<06327> (8686)
them as with an east
<06921>
wind
<07307>
before
<06440>
the enemy
<0341> (8802)_;
I will shew
<07200> (8799)
them the back
<06203>_,
and not the face
<06440>_,
in the day
<03117>
of their calamity
<0343>_.
Then said
<0559> (8799)
they, Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us devise
<02803> (8799)
devices
<04284>
against Jeremiah
<03414>_;
for the law
<08451>
shall not perish
<06> (8799)
from the priest
<03548>_,
nor counsel
<06098>
from the wise
<02450>_,
nor the word
<01697>
from the prophet
<05030>_.
Come
<03212> (8798)_,
and let us smite
<05221> (8686)
him with the tongue
<03956>_,
and let us not give heed
<07181> (8686)
to any of his words
<01697>_.
{with...: or, for the tongue}
Give heed
<07181> (8685)
to me, O LORD
<03068>_,
and hearken
<08085> (8798)
to the voice
<06963>
of them that contend
<03401>
with me.
Shall evil
<07451>
be recompensed
<07999> (8792)
for good
<02896>_?
for they have digged
<03738> (8804)
a pit
<07745>
for my soul
<05315>_.
Remember
<02142> (8798)
that I stood
<05975> (8800)
before
<06440>
thee to speak
<01696> (8763)
good
<02896>
for them, [and] to turn away
<07725> (8687)
thy wrath
<02534>
from them.
Therefore deliver up
<05414> (8798)
their children
<01121>
to the famine
<07458>_,
and pour out
<05064> (8685)
their [blood] by the force
<03027>
of the sword
<02719>_;
and let their wives
<0802>
be bereaved
<07909>
of their children, and [be] widows
<0490>_;
and let their men
<0582>
be put
<02026> (8803)
to death
<04194>_;
[let] their young men
<0970>
[be] slain
<05221> (8716)
by the sword
<02719>
in battle
<04421>_.
{pour...: Heb. pour them out}
Let a cry
<02201>
be heard
<08085> (8735)
from their houses
<01004>_,
when thou shalt bring
<0935> (8686)
a troop
<01416>
suddenly
<06597>
upon them: for they have digged
<03738> (8804)
a pit
<07745> (8675) <07882>
to take
<03920> (8800)
me, and hid
<02934> (8804)
snares
<06341>
for my feet
<07272>_.
Yet, LORD
<03068>_,
thou knowest
<03045> (8804)
all their counsel
<06098>
against me to slay
<04194>
[me]: forgive
<03722> (8762)
not their iniquity
<05771>_,
neither blot out
<04229> (8686)
their sin
<02403>
from thy sight
<06440>_,
but let them be overthrown
<03782> (8716)
before
<06440>
thee; deal
<06213> (8798)
[thus] with them in the time
<06256>
of thine anger
<0639>_.
{to slay...: Heb. for death}
