Jeremiah 16:18-21 New International Version (NIV)

18 I will repay(A) them double(B) for their wickedness and their sin, because they have defiled my land(C) with the lifeless forms of their vile images(D) and have filled my inheritance with their detestable idols.(E)(F)

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

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