The call to repent for Judah and Jerusalem (Jer 18:11-18:11)



Say to the people of Judah!

Say to the inhabitants of Jerusalem!

‘Thus says Yahweh!


I am a potter

Shaping evil against you.

I am devising a plan against you.

Turn now!

All of you!

From your evil way!

Amend your ways!

Amend your doings!’”

Yahweh then told Jeremiah to tell the people of Judah and Jerusalem what he wanted done. He said that he was a potter that was shaping evil against them. He was devising a plan against them. All of them had to turn from their evil ways. They had to amend their life styles and what they were doing. The choice was theirs. Change or suffer!
