The jars of wine (Jer 13:12-13:12)

“You shall speak to them this word.

‘Thus says Yahweh!

The God of Israel!

Every wine jar should be filled

With wine.

They will say to you.

‘Do you think

That we do not know

That every wine jar

Should be filled with wine?’”

Yahweh has another story about jars of wine. Yahweh spoke to Jeremiah to tell the people of Israel that Yahweh was their God. He wanted every wine jar filled with wine. However, the Israelites were going to tell him that they already knew that every wine jar should be filled with wine. What was the big deal?
