Woe unto them that seek deep to hide their counsel from the LORD, and their works are in the dark, and they say, Who seeth us? and who knoweth us? Surely your turning of things upside down shall be esteemed as the potter’s clay: for shall the work say of him that made it, He made me not? or shall the thing framed say of him that framed it, He had no understanding?
A woe is pronounced on the deceitful rulers who were plotting with Egypt, as if God did not see them. They had everything topsy-turvy, putting the clay in the potter’s place and vice versa, thus denying God’s power and knowledge.
