New American Standard Bible

Chapter 1

8 Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to save you,' declares the LORD. 9 Then the LORD stretched out His hand and touched my mouth, and the LORD said to me, 'Behold, I have put My words in your mouth.
10 See, I have appointed you this day over the nations and over the kingdoms, To root out and to tear down, To destroy and to overthrow, To build and to plant.'
11 And the word of the LORD came to me, saying, 'What do you see, Jeremiah?' And I said, 'I see a branch of an almond tree.' 12 Then the LORD said to me, 'You have seen well, for I am watching over My word to perform it.'
King James Version

Chapter 1

8 Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD. 9 Then the LORD put forth his hand, and touched my mouth. And the LORD said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth. 10 See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy, and to throw down, to build, and to plant.
11 Moreover the word of the LORD came unto me, saying, Jeremiah, what seest thou? And I said, I see a rod of an almond tree. 12 Then said the LORD unto me, Thou hast well seen: for I will hasten my word to perform it.
