15  Now the word of YHWH came unto Jeremiah, while he was shut up in the court of the guard, saying

Jer46:15  And the word of the Lord came to Jeremias in the court of the prison, saying,

15  But the word of the Lord had come to Jeremiah, when he had been confined to the vestibule of the prison, saying: “Go, and speak to Ebedmelech, the Ethiopian, saying

16  'Go, and speak to Ebed-melech the Ethiopian, saying: Thus saith YHWH of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will bring My words upon this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be accomplished before thee in that day.

Jer46:16  Go and say to Abdemelech the Ethiopian, Thus said the Lord God of Israel; Behold, I will bring my words upon this city for evil, and not for good.

16  Thus says the Lord of hosts, the God of Israel: Behold, I will bring my words over this city for evil, and not for good; and they shall be in your sight in that day.

17  But I will deliver thee in that day, saith YHWH; and thou shalt not be given into the hand of the men of whom thou art afraid.

Jer46:17  But I will save thee in that day, and I will by no means deliver thee into the hands of the men before whom thou art afraid.

17  And I will free you in that day, says the Lord. And you will not be delivered into the hands of the men whom you dread.

18  For I will surely deliver thee, and thou shalt not fall by the sword, but thy life shall be for a prey unto thee; because thou hast put thy trust in Me, saith YHWH.'

18  But when delivering, I will free you. And you will not fall by the sword. Instead, your life will be saved for you, because you had faith in me, says the Lord.”
