Parallel Verses
New American Standard Bible
But you, are you seeking great things for yourself? Do not seek them; for behold, I am going to bring disaster on all flesh,' declares the LORD, 'but I will give your life to you as booty in all the places where you may go.'"

King James Bible
And seekest thou great things for thyself? seek them not: for, behold, I will bring evil upon all flesh, saith the LORD: but thy life will I give unto thee for a prey in all places whither thou goest.

Holman Christian Standard Bible
But as for you, do you seek great things for yourself? Stop seeking! For I am about to bring disaster on every living creature--this is the LORD's declaration-- 'but I will grant you your life like the spoils of war wherever you go.'"
