Jeremiah 1:12-19

NRS 12 Then the Lord said to me, "You have seen well, for I am watching over my word to perform it." NIV 12 The LORD said to me, "You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled." NRS 13 The word of the Lord came to me a second time, saying, "What do you see?" And I said, "I see a boiling pot, tilted away from the north." NIV 13 The word of the LORD came to me again: "What do you see?" "I see a boiling pot, tilting away from the north," I answered. NRS 14 Then the Lord said to me: Out of the north disaster shall break out on all the inhabitants of the land. NIV 14 The LORD said to me, "From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in the land. NRS 15 For now I am calling all the tribes of the kingdoms of the north, says the Lord; and they shall come and all of them shall set their thrones at the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem, against all its surrounding walls and against all the cities of Judah. NIV 15 I am about to summon all the peoples of the northern kingdoms," declares the LORD. "Their kings will come and set up their thrones in the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem; they will come against all her surrounding walls and against all the towns of Judah. NRS 16 And I will utter my judgments against them, for all their wickedness in forsaking me; they have made offerings to other gods, and worshiped the works of their own hands. NIV 16 I will pronounce my judgments on my people because of their wickedness in forsaking me, in burning incense to other gods and in worshiping what their hands have made. NRS 17 But you, gird up your loins; stand up and tell them everything that I command you. Do not break down before them, or I will break you before them. NIV 17 "Get yourself ready! Stand up and say to them whatever I command you. Do not be terrified by them, or I will terrify you before them. NRS 18 And I for my part have made you today a fortified city, an iron pillar, and a bronze wall, against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, its princes, its priests, and the people of the land. NIV 18 Today I have made you a fortified city, an iron pillar and a bronze wall to stand against the whole land--against the kings of Judah, its officials, its priests and the people of the land. NRS 19 They will fight against you; but they shall not prevail against you, for I am with you, says the Lord, to deliver you. NIV 19 They will fight against you but will not overcome you, for I am with you and will rescue you," declares the LORD.
