[Then said Jeremiah] “O Lord, my Strength and my Stronghold,
And my Refuge in the day of distress and need,
The nations will come to You
From the ends of the earth and say,
‘Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies and illusion,
[Worthless] things in which there is no benefit!’
“Can a man make gods for himself?
Such [things] are not gods!
“Therefore,” [says the Lord] “behold, I will make them know—
This time I will make them know
My power and My might;
And they will know and recognize [without any doubt] that My Name is the Lord.”
New International Version
19 Lord, my strength and my fortress,
my refuge(A) in time of distress,
to you the nations will come(B)
from the ends of the earth and say,
“Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods,(C)
worthless idols(D) that did them no good.(E)
20 Do people make their own gods?
Yes, but they are not gods!”(F)
21 “Therefore I will teach them—
this time I will teach them
my power and might.
Then they will know
that my name(G) is the Lord.
