Jeremiah 19:2 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

Go and get a potter's earthen bottle - This discourse was also delivered some time in the reign of Jehoiakim. Under the type of breaking a potter's earthen bottle or jug, Jeremiah shows his enemies that the word of the Lord should stand, that Jerusalem should be taken and sacked, and they all carried into captivity.

Ancients of the priests - The chiefs of the twenty-four classes which David had established. See 1 Chronicles 24:4.

The Valley of Hinnom.
A great part of the valley of Kedron was called also the 'Valley of Hinnom.'
