Jeremiah goes to the potter’s house (Jer 18:1-18:4)

“The word came to Jeremiah

From Yahweh.

‘Come!

Go down to the potter’s house!

There I will let you hear my words.’

So I went down to the potter’s house.

There he was working at his wheel.

The vessel he was making of clay

Was spoiled

In the potter’s hand.

He reworked it into another vessel.

As it seemed good to him to do.”

Yahweh told Jeremiah to go to the potter’s house, probably in the southern section of Jerusalem. Jeremiah did just as Yahweh wanted him to do, as he went to the potter’s house. There he saw the potter working with clay at his pottery wheel. However, the potter spoiled the first jug that he was making, so he made it into another kind of vessel instead of throwing it away. So far, this is a pretty straight forward story.
