Jeremiah 29:27-29 Contemporary English Version (CEV)

27 Jeremiah from the town of Anathoth is pretending to be a prophet there in Jerusalem, so why haven’t you punished him? 28 He even wrote a letter to the people here in Babylonia, saying we would be here a long time. He told us to build homes and to plant gardens and grow our own food.

29 When Zephaniah received Shemaiah’s letter, he read it to me.

Jeremiah 29:27-29 New International Version (NIV)

27 So why have you not reprimanded Jeremiah from Anathoth, who poses as a prophet among you? 28 He has sent this message to us in Babylon: It will be a long time. Therefore build houses and settle down; plant gardens and eat what they produce.’”

29 Zephaniah the priest, however, read the letter to Jeremiah the prophet.
