Jeremiah 19* By the type of breaking an earthen vessel, Jeremiah is topredict the destruction of Judah.1-9 The prophet must give notice of ruin coming upon Judah andJerusalem. Both rulers and ruled must attend to it. That placewhich holiness made the joy of the whole earth, sin made thereproach and shame of the whole earth. There is no fleeing fromGod's justice, but by fleeing to his mercy. 10-15 The potter's vessel, after it is hardened, can never bepieced again when it is broken. And as the bottle was broken, soshall Judah and Jerusalem be broken by the Chaldeans. No humanhand can repair it; but if they return to the Lord he will heal.As they filled Tophet with the slain sacrificed to their idols,so will God fill the whole city with the slain that shall fallas sacrifices to his justice. Whatever men may think, God willappear as terrible against sin and sinners as the Scripturesstate; nor shall the unbelief of men make his promise or histhreatenings of no effect. The obstinacy of sinners in sinfulways, 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 praythat God, by his grace, would deliver us from hardness of heart,and contempt of his word and commandments.
