Jeremiah 20:9New Century Version (NCV)

Sometimes I say to myself,
    “I will forget about the Lord.
    I will not speak anymore in his name.”
But then his message becomes like a burning fire inside me,
    deep within my bones.
I get tired of trying to hold it inside of me,
    and finally, I cannot hold it in.

Jeremiah 20:9Amplified Bible (AMP)


If I say, “I will not remember Him
Or speak His name anymore,”
Then my heart becomes a burning fire
Shut up in my bones.
And I am weary of enduring and holding it in;
I cannot endure it [nor contain it any longer].

Jeremiah 20:9Contemporary English Version (CEV)

Sometimes I tell myself
not to think about you, Lord,
    or even mention your name.
But your message burns
in my heart and bones,
    and I cannot keep silent.
