“Get up and go down to the potter’s house and I will tell you my message there.” Bible other translations

“Get up.” The verb is imperative, so we might well understand the verse as “Get up! And go down to the potter’s house.” God had something he wanted to show Jeremiah and the potter was currently working, which was important for God’s lesson to Jeremiah, so He commanded Jeremiah to get up and go right then.

“I will tell you my message.” The literal Hebrew is “I will cause you to hear my words,” but it means I will tell you my words.
