New American Standard Bible
19 Therefore, this is what the Lord says:
“(A)If you return, then I will restore you—
(B)You will stand before Me;
And (C)if you extract the precious from the worthless,
You will become [a]My spokesman.
They, for their part, may turn to you,
But as for you, you are not to turn to them.
- Jeremiah 15:19 Lit as My mouth
19 Eternal One (to Jeremiah): If you will turn back to Me,
I will restore you—
and you will stand before Me.
If you will speak worthy words instead of worthless complaints,
You will be My spokesman.
Let the people come to you, but don’t go to them!
New Living Translation
19 This is how the Lord responds:
“If you return to me, I will restore you
so you can continue to serve me.
If you speak good words rather than worthless ones,
you will be my spokesman.
You must influence them;
do not let them influence you!
