Jeremiah 16:19-21 World English Bible (WEB)

19 Yahweh, my strength, and my stronghold,
    and my refuge in the day of affliction,
the nations will come to you from the ends of the earth,
    and will say,
“Our fathers have inherited nothing but lies,
    vanity and things in which there is no profit.
20 Should a man make to himself gods
    which yet are no gods?”

21 “Therefore behold, I will cause them to know,
    this once I will cause them to know my hand and my might.
    Then they will know that my name is Yahweh.”

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.
