Jeremiah 16:19-21 Living Bible (TLB)

19 O Lord, my Strength and Fortress, my Refuge in the day of trouble, nations from around the world will come to you saying, “Our fathers have been foolish, for they have worshiped worthless idols! 20 Can men make God? The gods they made are not real gods at all.”

21 And when they come in that spirit, I will show them[a] my power and might and make them understand at last that I alone am God.

Jeremiah 16:19-21 New International Version (NIV)

19 Lord, my strength and my fortress,
    my refuge in time of distress,
to you the nations will come
    from the ends of the earth and say,
“Our ancestors possessed nothing but false gods,
    worthless idols that did them no good.
20 Do people make their own gods?
    Yes, but they are not gods!”

21 “Therefore I will teach them—
    this time I will teach them
    my power and might.
Then they will know
    that my name is the Lord.
