New Revised Standard (NRS) New International Version (NIV)
34 The word of the Lord that came to the prophet Jeremiah concerning Elam, at the beginning of the reign of King Zedekiah of Judah. 34 This is the word of the LORD that came to Jeremiah the prophet concerning Elam, early in the reign of Zedekiah king of Judah:
35 Thus says the Lord of hosts: I am going to break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might; 35 This is what the LORD Almighty says: "See, I will break the bow of Elam, the mainstay of their might.
36 and I will bring upon Elam the four winds from the four quarters of heaven; and I will scatter them to all these winds, and there shall be no nation to which the exiles from Elam shall not come. 36 I will bring against Elam the four winds from the four quarters of the heavens; I will scatter them to the four winds, and there will not be a nation where Elam's exiles do not go.
37 I will terrify Elam before their enemies, and before those who seek their life; I will bring disaster upon them, my fierce anger, says the Lord. I will send the sword after them, until I have consumed them; 37 I will shatter Elam before their foes, before those who seek their lives; I will bring disaster upon them, even my fierce anger," declares the LORD. "I will pursue them with the sword until I have made an end of them.
38 and I will set my throne in Elam, and destroy their king and officials, says the Lord. 38 I will set my throne in Elam and destroy her king and officials," declares the LORD.
39 But in the latter days I will restore the fortunes of Elam, says the Lord. 39 "Yet I will restore the fortunes of Elam in days to come," declares the LORD.
