CommentaryClarke's Commentary on the Bible
Even so will I break this people and this city - The breaking of the bottle was the symbolical representation of the destruction of the city and of the state.

that one 'will rule them with an iron scepter and will dash them to pieces like pottery' --just as I have received authority from my Father.
You will break them with a rod of iron; you will dash them to pieces like pottery."
Therefore disaster will overtake him in an instant; he will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy.
It will break in pieces like pottery, shattered so mercilessly that among its pieces not a fragment will be found for taking coals from a hearth or scooping water out of a cistern."
So beware, the days are coming, declares the LORD, when people will no longer call it Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter, for they will bury the dead in Topheth until there is no more room.
This is what I will do to this place and to those who live here, declares the LORD. I will make this city like Topheth.
