Go and tell the man who sent you, NIV 15 She said to them, "This is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Tell the man who sent you to me, NLT 16 'This is what the LORD says: I will destroy this city and its people, just as I stated in the scroll you read. NIV 16 'This is what the LORD says: I am going to bring disaster on this place and its people, according to everything written in the book the king of Judah has read. NLT 17 For my people have abandoned me and worshiped pagan gods, and I am very angry with them for everything they have done. My anger is burning against this place, and it will not be quenched.'"

You tore your clothing in despair and wept before me in repentance. So I have indeed heard you, says the LORD. NIV 19 Because your heart was responsive and you humbled yourself before the LORD when you heard what I have spoken against this place and its people, that they would become accursed and laid waste, and because you tore your robes and wept in my presence, I have heard you, declares the LORD. NLT 20 I will not send the promised disaster against this city until after you have died and been buried in peace. You will not see the disaster I am going to bring on this place.'" So they took her message back to the king. NIV 20 Therefore I will gather you to your fathers, and you will be buried in peace. Your eyes will not see all the disaster I am going to bring on this place.' " So they took her answer back to the king.
