SEV Biblia, Chapter 19:1 Â¶ Así dijo el SEÑOR: Ve, y compra una vasija de barro del alfarero, y lleva contigo alguno de los ancianos del pueblo, y de los ancianos de los sacerdotes;
Clarke's Bible Commentary - Jeremiah 19:1 Verse 1. 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 Chron. xxiv. 4.
Matthew Henry Commentary
By the type of breaking an earthen vessel, Jeremiah is to predict the destruction of Judah.
Jer. 19:1-9 The prophet must give notice of ruin coming upon Judah an Jerusalem. Both rulers and ruled must attend to it. That place whic holiness made the joy of the whole earth, sin made the reproach an shame of the whole earth. There is no fleeing from God's justice, but by fleeing to his mercy.
Jer. 19:10-15 The potter's vessel, after it is hardened, can never be pieced again when it is broken. And as the bottle was broken, so shal Judah and Jerusalem be broken by the Chaldeans. No human hand can repair it; but if they return to the Lord he will heal. As they fille Tophet with the slain sacrificed to their idols, so will God fill the whole city with the slain that shall fall as sacrifices to his justice Whatever men may think, God will appear as terrible against sin an sinners as the Scriptures state; nor shall the unbelief of men make his promise or his threatenings of no effect. The obstinacy of sinners i sinful ways, is their own fault; if they are deaf to the word of God it is because they have stopped their ears. We have need to pray tha God, by his grace, would deliver us from hardness of heart, an contempt of his word and commandments __________________________________________________________________
