New Living Translation
Jeremiah’s Prayer of Confidence
19 Lord, you are my strength and fortress,
my refuge in the day of trouble!
Nations from around the world
will come to you and say,
“Our ancestors left us a foolish heritage,
for they worshiped worthless idols.
20 Can people make their own gods?
These are not real gods at all!”
21 The Lord says,
“Now I will show them my power;
now I will show them my might.
At last they will know and understand
that I am 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.
