Psalm 2:9; Isaiah 30:14; Lamentations 4:2

You shall dbreak1 them with ea rod of iron

and dash them in pieces like fa potter's vessel.


14  and its breaking is jlike that of a potter's vessel

that is smashed so ruthlessly

that among its fragments not a shard is found

with which to take fire from the hearth,

or to dip up water out of the cistern.


The precious sons of Zion,

worth their weight in sfine gold,

how they are regarded as tearthen pots,

the work of a potter's hands!
