Isaiah 30:33 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

33 Indeed! Topheth has been ready
for the king for a long time now.
Its funeral pyre is deep and wide,
with plenty of fire and wood.
The breath of the Lord, like a torrent of brimstone,
kindles it.

Isaiah 30:33 New International Version (NIV)

33 Topheth has long been prepared;
    it has been made ready for the king.
Its fire pit has been made deep and wide,
    with an abundance of fire and wood;
the breath of the Lord,
    like a stream of burning sulfur,
    sets it ablaze.

New International Version (NIV)

Jeremiah 7:31-32 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)

31 They have built the high places of Topheth[a] in the Valley of Hinnom[b] in order to burn their sons and daughters in the fire, a thing I did not command; I never entertained the thought.[c]

32 “Therefore, take note! Days are coming”—the Lord’s declaration—“when this place will no longer be called Topheth and the Valley of Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter. Topheth will become a cemetery,[d] because there will be no other burial place.

Jeremiah 7:31-32 New International Version (NIV)

31 They have built the high places of Topheth in the Valley of Ben Hinnom to burn their sons and daughters in the fire—something I did not command, nor did it enter my mind. 32 So beware, the days are coming, declares the Lord, when people will no longer call it Topheth or the Valley of Ben Hinnom, but the Valley of Slaughter, for they will bury the dead in Topheth until there is no more room.
