Sabbath Scripture

(Sometimes comparing different translations of the Bible 
helps us understand the Good News better.)

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, 
saith the Lord, 
thoughts of peace, and not of evil, 
to give you an expected end. 
King James Version Jeremiah 29:11

For surely I know the plans I have for you, 
says the Lord, 
plans for your welfare and not for harm, 
to give you a future with hope. 
New Revised Standard Jeremiah 29:11

For I know the plans I have for you," 
declares the LORD, 
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you, 
plans to give you hope and a future. 
New International Version Jeremiah 29:11
