Tell them the Lord who rules over all says, 1  ‘I will do just as Jeremiah has done. 2  I will smash this nation and this city as though it were a potter’s vessel which is broken beyond repair. 3  The dead will be buried here in Topheth until there is no more room to bury them.’ 4

NET © Notes

tn Heb “Thus says Yahweh of armies.” For this title see the study note on 2:19. The translation attempts to avoid the confusion of embedding quotes within quotes by reducing this one to an indirect quote.

tn The adverb “Thus” or “Like this” normally points back to something previously mentioned. See, e.g., Exod 29:35; Num 11:15; 15:11; Deut 25:9.

tn Heb “Like this I will break this people and this city, just as one breaks the vessel of a potter which is not able to be repaired.”

sn See Jer 7:22-23 for parallels.
