Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

Jeremiah 18:3

_ _ wheels — literally, “on both stones.” The potter’s horizontal lathe consisted of two round plates, the lower one larger, the upper smaller; of stone originally, but afterwards of wood. On the upper the potter molded the clay into what shapes he pleased. They are found represented in Egyptian remains. In Exodus 1:16 alone is the Hebrew word found elsewhere, but in a different sense.
