Jeremiah 1:16-18 Living Bible (TLB)
16 This is the way I will punish my people for deserting me and for worshiping other gods—yes, idols they themselves have made! 17 Get up and dress and go out and tell them whatever I tell you to say. Don’t be afraid of them, or else I will make a fool of you in front of them. 18 For see, today I have made you impervious to their attacks. They cannot harm you. You are strong like a fortified city that cannot be captured, like an iron pillar and heavy gates of brass. All the kings of Judah, its officers, priests, and people will not be able to prevail against you.
