How the precious sons of Zion, once worth their weight in pure gold, are now esteemed as clay jars, the work of a potter's hands!
Cross References2 Corinthians 4:7
Now we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this surpassingly great power is from God and not from us.
It will break in pieces like a potter's jar, shattered so that no fragment can be found. Not a shard will be found in the dust large enough to scoop the coals from a hearth or to skim the water from a cistern."
This is what the LORD says: "Go, buy a clay jar from a potter. Take some of the elders of the people and leaders of the priests,
and you are to proclaim to them that this is what the LORD of Hosts says: I will shatter this nation and this city, like one shatters a potter's jar that can never again be repaired. They will bury the dead in Topheth since there is nowhere else to bury them.
