Bad times ahead (Jer 48:12-48:12)

“‘Therefore,

The time is

Surely coming.’

Says Yahweh,

‘I shall send

To him

Decanters

To decant him.

They will empty

His vessels.

They will break

His jars in pieces.’”

Yahweh warns, via Jeremiah, that he was going to send decanters to Moab soon. Decanters are those who move wine from one delicate container to another. However, these decanters were going to empty out his jars and break them into pieces to make them useless.
