Jeremiah 19

19:1 Thus saith the LORD, Go and get a potter's earthen bottle,
 and [take] of the ancients of the people, and of the ancients
 of the priests;
19:2 And go forth to the valley of the son of Hinnom, which [is]
 by the entry of the east gate, and proclaim there the words
 that I shall tell thee,
19:3 And say, Hear ye the word of the LORD, O kings of Judah,
 and inhabitants of Jerusalem; Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the
 God of Israel; Behold, I will bring evil upon this place, which
 whoever heareth, his ears shall tingle.
19:4 Because they have forsaken me, and have estranged this
 place, and have burned incense in it to other gods, whom
 neither they nor their fathers have known, nor the kings of
 Judah, and have filled this place with the blood of innocents;
19:5 They have built also the high places of Baal, to burn their
 sons with fire [for] burnt-offerings to Baal, which I commanded
 not, nor spoke [it], neither came [it] into my mind:
19:6 Therefore behold, the days come, saith the LORD, that this
 place shall no more be called Tophet, nor The valley of the son
 of Hinnom, but The valley of slaughter.
19:7 And I will make void the counsel of Judah and Jerusalem in
 this place; and I will cause them to fall by the sword before
 their enemies, and by the hands of them that seek their lives:
 and their carcasses will I give to be food for the fowls of the
 heaven, and for the beasts of the earth.
19:8 And I will make this city desolate, and a hissing; every
 one that passeth by it shall be astonished and hiss because of
 all its plagues.
19:9 And I will cause them to eat the flesh of their sons and
 the flesh of their daughters, and they shall eat every one the
 flesh of his friend in the siege and distress with which their
 enemies, and they that seek their lives, shall distress them.
19:10 Then shalt thou break the bottle in the sight of the men
 that go with thee,
19:11 And shalt say to them, Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Even
 so will I break this people and this city, as [one] breaketh a
 potter's vessel, that cannot be made whole again: and they
 shall bury [them] in Tophet, till [there be] no place to bury.
19:12 Thus will I do to this place, saith the LORD, and to its
 inhabitants, and [even] make this city as Tophet:
19:13 And the houses of Jerusalem, and the houses of the kings
 of Judah, shall be defiled as the place of Tophet, because of
 all the houses upon whose roofs they have burned incense to all
 the host of heaven, and have poured out drink-offerings to
 other gods.
19:14 Then came Jeremiah from Tophet, whither the LORD had sent
 him to prophesy; and he stood in the court of the LORD'S house;
 and said to all the people,
19:15 Thus saith the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Behold, I
 will bring upon this city and upon all her towns all the evil
 that I have pronounced against it, because they have hardened
 their necks, that they might not hear my words.
