Wen you get dea, I goin tell you someting.” 3 So I go down by da house a da guy dat make clay pots. I see he stay work wit da wheel fo make pots. 4 But kapulu da way he make dis pot wit his hands, so he make one diffren pot wit da same wet clay, da way he tink mo betta.
5 Den Da One In Charge give me dis message: 6 “You Israel peopo, how come you guys tink I no can make wit you guys jalike dis guy make wit da clay pot?! Fo me, you guys jalike da clay dis guy use fo make clay pots wit his hands. 7 If bumbye I tell dat I goin pull out one peopo o one king an his peopo from da land, an wipe um out, 8 an if dose peopo dat I tell, change an come sorry fo da bad kine stuff dey wen do, an no do um no moa, den I goin tink diffren, an I no goin do to dem all da bad kine stuff dat I wen plan fo do to dem befoa.
