Jeremiah 1:16-18 International Standard Version (ISV)

16 “I’ll pronounce my judgments against them

and they have bowed down in worship
    to the works of their own[a] hands.”[b]

The Lord’s Assurance to Jeremiah

17 “As for you, get ready![c] Stand up and tell them everything that I’ve commanded you. Don’t be frightened as you face them, or I’ll frighten you right in front of them.

18 “As for me, today I’m making you a fortified city, an iron pillar, and a bronze wall against the whole land—against the kings of Judah, against its princes, against its priests, and against the people of the land.

Jeremiah 1:16-18 New International Version (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.

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. 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.
