Wycliffe (WYC) New International Version (NIV)
9 And I said, I shall not have mind on him, and I shall no more speak in his name. And the word of the Lord was made, as fire swelling in mine heart, and closed in my bones; and I failed, not suffering to bear. (And so I said, I shall not remember him, and I shall no longer speak in the Lord's name. But the word of the Lord was made to me like a fire swelling in my heart, and enclosed in my bones; and I failed, and could not bear it, and so I had to speak it out.) 9 But if I say, "I will not mention him or speak any more in his name," his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot.
