NIV 16 "Go and tell Ebed-Melech the Cushite, 'This is what the LORD Almighty, the God of Israel, says: I am about to fulfill my words against this city through disaster, not prosperity. At that time they will be fulfilled before your eyes. NRS 17 But I will save you on that day, says the Lord, and you shall not be handed over to those whom you dread. NIV 17 But I will rescue you on that day, declares the LORD; you will not be handed over to those you fear.
