Jeremiah 44:15-19 World English Bible (WEB)

15 Then all the men who knew that their wives burned incense to other gods, and all the women who stood by, a great assembly, even all the people who lived in the land of Egypt, in Pathros, answered Jeremiah, saying, 16 As for the word that you have spoken to us in Yahweh’s name, we will not listen to you. 17 But we will certainly perform every word that has gone out of our mouth, to burn incense to the queen of the sky, and to pour out drink offerings to her, as we have done, we and our fathers, our kings and our princes, in the cities of Judah, and in the streets of Jerusalem; for then had we plenty of food, and were well, and saw no evil. 18 But since we left off burning incense to the queen of the sky, and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have wanted all things, and have been consumed by the sword and by the famine. 19 When we burned incense to the queen of the sky, and poured out drink offerings to her, did we make her cakes to worship her, and pour out drink offerings to her, without our husbands?

Jeremiah 44:15-19 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

15 Then all the men who were aware that their wives were burning [a]sacrifices to other gods, along with all the women who were standing by, as a large assembly, [b]including all the people who were living in Pathros in the land of Egypt, responded to Jeremiah, saying, 16 “As for the [c]message that you have spoken to us in the name of the Lord, we are not going to listen to you! 17 But rather we will certainly carry out every word that has proceeded from our mouths, [d]by burning [e]sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, just as we ourselves, our forefathers, our kings and our princes did in the cities of Judah and in the streets of Jerusalem; for then we had plenty of [f]food and were well off and saw no [g]misfortune. 18 But since we stopped burning [h]sacrifices to the queen of heaven and pouring out drink offerings to her, we have lacked everything and have [i]met our end by the sword and by famine.” 19 “And,” said the women, “when we were burning [j]sacrifices to the queen of heaven and [k]were pouring out drink offerings to her, was it without our husbands that we made for her sacrificial cakes [l]in her image and poured out drink offerings to her?”
