New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
17 The word of the Lord came to me: 17 The word of the LORD came to me:
18 Mortal, eat your bread with quaking, and drink your water with trembling and with fearfulness; 18 "Son of man, tremble as you eat your food, and shudder in fear as you drink your water.
19 and say to the people of the land, Thus says the Lord God concerning the inhabitants of Jerusalem in the land of Israel: They shall eat their bread with fearfulness, and drink their water in dismay, because their land shall be stripped of all it contains, on account of the violence of all those who live in it. 19 Say to the people of the land: 'This is what the Sovereign LORD says about those living in Jerusalem and in the land of Israel: They will eat their food in anxiety and drink their water in despair, for their land will be stripped of everything in it because of the violence of all who live there.
20 The inhabited cities shall be laid waste, and the land shall become a desolation; and you shall know that I am the Lord. 20 The inhabited towns will be laid waste and the land will be desolate. Then you will know that I am the LORD.' "
