The Book of Jeremiah Chapter 18 – New King James Version (NKJV) – Audio Bible

Chapter 18. The word which came to Jeremiah from the Lord saying Arise and go down to The Potter's House And there I will cause you to hear my Words Then I went down to The Potter's House And there he was making something at the Wheel And the vessel that he made of clay was Marred in the hand of the Potter So he made it again into another vessel As it seemed good to the Potter to make Then the word of the Lord came to me Saying O House of Israel can I not do with you As this Potter Says the Lord Look As the clay is in The Potter's hand so Are you in my hand o House of Israel The instant I speak concerning a nation And concerning a kingdom to pluck up to Pull down and to destroy it If that Nation against whom I have Spoken turns from its evil I will relent of the disaster that I Thought to bring upon it And the instant I speak concerning a Nation and concerning a kingdom to build And to plant it If it does evil in my sight so that it Does not obey my voice Then I will relent concerning the good

With which I said I would benefit it Now therefore speak to the men of Judah And to the inhabitants of Jerusalem Saying Thus says the Lord Behold I am fashioning a disaster and Devising a plan against you Return now everyone from his evil way And make your ways and your doings good And they said that is hopeless So we will walk according to our own Plans and we will everyone obey the Dictates of his evil heart Therefore thus says the Lord Ask now among the Gentiles Who has heard such things The virgin of Israel has done a very Horrible thing Will a man leave the snow water of Lebanon which comes from the rock of the Field Will the cold flowing Waters be forsaken For strange Waters Because my people have forgotten me they Have burned incense to worthless idols And they have caused themselves to Stumble in their ways from the ancient Paths to walk in Pathways and not on a Highway To make their land desolate and a Perpetual hissing Everyone who passes by it will be Astonished and shake his head I will scatter them as with an East Wind

Before the enemy I will show them the back and not the Face in the day of their calamity Then they said Come and let us devise plans against Jeremiah For the law shall not perish from the Priest nor counsel from the wise nor the Word from the prophet Come and let us attack him with the Tongue and let us not give heed to any Of his words Give heed to Me O Lord and listen to the Voice of those who contend with me Shall evil be repaid for good For they have dug a pit for my life Remember that I stood before you to Speak good for them to turn away your Wrath from them Therefore deliver up their children to The famine And pour out their blood by the force of The sword let their wives become widows And bereaved of their children Let their men be put to death their Young men be slain By The Sword in Battle Let a cry be heard from their houses When you bring a troop suddenly upon Them For they have dug a pit to take me and Hidden snares from my feet Yet Lord You know all their counsel which is

Against me to slay me Provide no atonement for their iniquity Nor blot out their Sin from your sight But let them be overthrown before you Deal thus with them in the time of your Anger
