Jeremiah 16:13-21 (New International Version)

View In My Bible
13 So I will throw you out of this land1 into a land neither you nor your fathers have known,2 and there you will serve other gods3 day and night, for I will show you no favor.'4 14 "However, the days are coming,"5 declares the LORD, "when men will no longer say, 'As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of Egypt,'6 15 but they will say, 'As surely as the LORD lives, who brought the Israelites up out of the land of the north7 and out of all the countries where he had banished them.'8 For I will restore9 them to the land I gave their forefathers.10 16 "But now I will send for many fishermen," declares the LORD, "and they will catch them.11 After that I will send for many hunters, and they will hunt12 them down on every mountain and hill and from the crevices of the rocks.13 17 My eyes are on all their ways; they are not hidden14 from me, nor is their sin concealed from my eyes.15 18 I will repay16 them double17 for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land18 with the lifeless forms of their vile images19 and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols.20"21 19 O LORD, my strength and my fortress, my refuge22 in time of distress, to you the nations will come23 from the ends of the earth and say, "Our fathers possessed nothing but false gods,24 worthless idols25 that did them no good.26 20 Do men make their own gods? Yes, but they are not gods!"27 21 "Therefore I will teach them-- this time I will teach them my power and might. Then they will know that my name28 is the LORD.
