Therefore you are to speak to them this word: “This is what Yahweh, the God of Israel, says: ‘every skin-bottle will be filled with wine.’” And they will tell you, ‘Do we not certainly know that every skin-bottle will be filled with wine?’ Bible other translations

“skin-bottle.” A “bottle” or container made from animal skin. [For more on skin-bottles, which were usually made from the skins of goats, see commentary on 1 Sam. 10:3].

“every skin-bottle will be filled with wine.” Jeremiah was giving a prophecy about the coming wrath upon Judah and Jerusalem, but the people did not understand him. But the Bible speaks of the wine of God’s wrath in a number of places (cp. Jer. 25:15; Rev. 14:10; 16:19). In Jeremiah 25:15, God speaks of the wine of His wrath that will be given to all the nations. The wine of God’s wrath was poured out on Judah, and it will be poured out again in the future on the AntiChrist and his kingdom.
