The Book of the Prophet Jeremiah    18: 1-6

18:1 The word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord, saying:
18:2 “Rise up and descend into the house of the potter, and there you will hear my words.”
18:3 And I descended into the house of the potter, and behold, he was making a work on the wheel.
18:4 And the vessel, which he was making with his hands out of clay, broke. And turning away, he made another vessel, for it had been pleasing in his eyes to make it.
18:5 Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
18:6 “Am I not able to do with you, O house of Israel, just as this potter has done, says the Lord? Behold, like clay in the hand of the potter, so are you in my hand, O house of Israel.
