Bible: Jeremiah 18:6-8

18:6 I, the Lord, say: 1  ‘O nation of Israel, can I not deal with you as this potter deals with the clay? 2  In my hands, you, O nation of Israel, are just like the clay in this potter’s hand.’ 18:7 There are times, Jeremiah, 3  when I threaten to uproot, tear down, and destroy a nation or kingdom. 4  18:8 But if that nation I threatened stops doing wrong, 5  I will cancel the destruction 6  I intended to do to it.
