Artist's Narrative:
Thus said the LORD to Jeremiah: Go, buy a potter's earthen flask. Take along some of the elders of the people and of the priests, and go out toward the Valley of Ben-hinnom, at the entrance of the Potsherd Gate; there you shall break the flask in the sight of the men who went with you, and say to them: Thus says the LORD of hosts: Thus will I smash this people and this city, as one smashes a clay pot so that it cannot be repaired. When Jeremiah returned from where the LORD had sent him to prophesy, he stood in the court of the house of God and said to all the people: Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel: I will surely bring upon this city all the evil with which I threatened it, because they have stiffened their necks and have not obeyed my words.
(Jeremiah 19:1-2a, 10-11, 14-15)
