Jeremiah 1:13-15 New American Bible (Revised Edition) (NABRE)

13 A second time the word of the Lord came to me: What do you see? I replied, “I see a boiling kettle whose mouth is tipped away from the north.”[a]

14 The Lord said to me, And from the north evil will pour out over all who dwell in the land.

15 Look, I am summoning
    all the kingdoms of the north—oracle of the Lord
Each king shall come and set up his throne
    in the gateways of Jerusalem,
Against all its surrounding walls
    and against all the cities of Judah.

Jeremiah 1:13-15 New International Version (NIV)

13 The word of the Lord came to me again: “What do you see?”

“I see a pot that is boiling,” I answered. “It is tilting toward us from the north.”

14 The Lord said to me, “From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in the land. 15 I am about to summon all the peoples of the northern kingdoms,” declares the Lord.

“Their kings will come and set up their thrones
    in the entrance of the gates of Jerusalem;
they will come against all her surrounding walls
    and against all the towns of Judah.
